Mac OS 9.1 and later could not boot successfully on SheepShaver because it lacks a memory management unit (MMU). However, there are some ways to get 9.1 working on SheepShaver by hacking the System file or replacing the System file from Mac OS 9.0.4 and changing version number to 9.1 using ResEdit, but this may result in system instability.
If you are running a PowerBook 3400c, use the update without updating hard disk drivers.
For PowerBook 1400s, Password Security is not supported.
For 20th Anniversary Mac, disable Virtual Memory.
For Power Macintosh 6100/7100/8100, you need to install from the CD version, updating from 9.0.x is not supported.
Also, a Power Mac 61/71/8100/9150 with a third-party accelerator card will not install Mac OS 9.1.

MacOS91CD.ZIP (407.12 MB)

@donsolaris: Thanks for the pix. I can now see where you are going wrong. Note; the CD image is already bootable - you don't need to try and make it bootable.

In your pic under the "Other" tab you have selected "Mac Volume", where you should have selected "Disk Image".

  • The steps to undertake are:
    1. Unzip the file "MacOS91CD.ZIP" and immediately lock the extracted .toast image (most important).
    2. Start up Toast 5, Choose "Other" tab and select "Disk Image" if not already selected.
    3. Drag the extracted and locked .toast image into the Toast window, it's full name "Mac OS 9.1.toast" will appear under "Disk Image" in Toast's window (it does not require mounting).
    4. Click the "Record" button
    5. Insert blank CD-R when requested, then finally, click "Write disk".

Following the above steps results in a bootable Mac OS 9.1 CD, for me.

Ha! I think the Toast 5.2.1 is the problem. I did lock the image. I then mount it with Toaster. When i go to prepare for the burning, for some reason Toaster keeps ignoring that i pressed the bootable button.

Here, i press Bootable:

then i press OK and then i get this:

You can clearly see the program completely ignored my command! It should say: Optimize on-the-fly/bootable. And if i reopen the Select screen i can see that the bootable is now unclicked. This is version 5.2.1, but interestingly, the same happened in 5.2. Machine is G4 OSX 10.3.

UPDATE: Just tried Toast 5.1 on G4 OS 9.2 machine and exactly the same problem! Bootable option can't be selected. I think i should move discussion to forum.

Is there are reason why MacOS91CD.ZIP is not a bootable CD?

Was the CD image locked? That is; Is it possible that when you unzipped the archive, that you did not lock the CD image before you proceeded to do anything else with it? Bootable CD images need to be locked before they are either mounted on the desktop or burned to CD by Toast or by any other means.

Is there are reason why MacOS91CD.ZIP is not a bootable CD? Do i need to have OS9.0 installed first? I should point out i unzipped the toast image and simply burned it image onto a CD using toaster software.

Thank you for the advice, Berty. Smile

By recommendation of 24bit, I used ImgBurn 2.5.0.0 (obtained via this site) to create an ISO, which will eventually appear on a Mega account that I created at the beginning of the year. I will post the link when the upload completes.

Always happy to help fellow Classic Mac enthusiasts. Smile

EDIT: The ISO image has completed uploading, and can be accessed here:

If you have the opportunity to run Windows 2k or better (native or virtual) best use the free IMGBurn flavour here:
http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/imgburn-250
This app creates bootable HFS images hassle free as ISO.

Others may have differing opinion, Toast should be good for OS9, but anything involving OSX is safer with Disk Utility, creating DVD/CD Master with no encryption.

I have located my Mac OS 9.1 install CD for iBook - Part Number 691-3084-A, CD version 2.1, and I am considering contributing a Toast copy of the disc to Macintosh Garden, in case anyone is interested in using the North American English locale. Even though I am very experienced with Toast Titanium, this will be the first pre-Mac OS X disc image I have ever created.

So, before I actually image the disc, does anyone have any tips on how to make the disc image bootable with Toast Titanium? Or would it be best if I stuck with Disk Utility for imaging OS installer discs? I would appreciate any tips on how to successfully create bootable disc images on the first try.

The disc shipped with a dual USB iBook that I no longer own, but I have confirmed that it does install fine on Clamshell models; in fact, I just used it to put a fresh copy of Mac OS 9 on a graphite iBook that I rescued at an e-waste recycling facility.

Thank you for the advice, and God bless.

by MacTouch - 2016, August 31 - 4:53pm

No. I think may be you have to modify the settings of Toast to make a bootable disc. Also, you can burn your disc directly on Disk Utility under Mac os X if installed on your G4...

by arjan1995 - 2016, August 31 - 3:56pm

I burned the G4 digital audio restore image using toast. It was not bootable!
By the way I have a 733 MHz model, does that require a different restore disc?

  The file iMacS200091CD_Inst.ZIP appears to be for the iMac Early 2001 or Summer 2001 models, not the iMac DV Summer 2000 models.

Thanks. I think you might be right with this info. We now have to figure out if its the same as one of the other 2001 series listed on this page.

Pity, as it means a replacement iMac DV Summer 2000 disk is required.

The file iMacS200091CD_Inst.ZIP appears to be for the iMac Early 2001 or Summer 2001 models, not the iMac DV Summer 2000 models.

I was not able to boot it from an iMac G3/500Mhz DV SE (Summer 2000). It also contains Mac OS ROM 7.5.1, which according to Apple is for the iMac Early 2001 or Summer 2001 models.

https://support.apple.com/kb/TA22055?locale=en_US

As far as I can tell, there was never a model specific version of 9.1 released for the iMac DV Summer 2000 models.
