Mac OS 8 (or System 8 ) is an operating system that was released by Apple Computer on July 26, 1997. It represented the largest overhaul of the Mac OS since the release of Mac OS 7, some six years previously. It puts more emphasis on color than previous operating systems. Released over a series of updates, Mac OS 8 was an effort to integrate many of the technologies developed for Apple's overly-ambitious operating system known as Copland. Mac OS 8 helped modernize the Mac OS while Apple developed its next generation operating system, Mac OS X. Mac OS 8 is one of Apple's most successful software releases, selling over 1.2 million copies in the first two weeks. Coming as it did at a difficult time in Apple's history, many pirate groups refused to traffic in the new operating system, encouraging people to buy it instead.

Mac OS 8.0 brought about the most significant changes in the line-up, including the introduction of the Platinum interface and a native PowerPC multi-threaded Finder. Mac OS 8.1 introduced a new, more efficient file system known as HFS Plus. Mac OS 8.5 was the first version of the Mac OS to require a PowerPC processor. It featured PowerPC native versions of QuickDraw and AppleScript, along with the Sherlock search utility. Its successor, Mac OS 9, was released on October 23, 1999.

Developed under the codename "Tempo", Mac OS 8.0 was released on July 26, 1997. Initially, the early beta releases of the product which were circulated to developers and Apple internal audiences, were branded as Mac OS 7.7 (superseding the current release, Mac OS 7.6). Afterwards, the software was later renamed to Mac OS 8 before the final release.

Major improvements in this version included the Platinum theme, a PowerPC native, multi-threaded Finder and greater customization of the user interface.

Released on January 19, 1998, Mac OS 8.1 was the last version of the Mac OS to run on 68k processors. It addressed performance and reliability improvements. It introduced a new file system known as HFS+, (aka Mac OS Extended,) which supported large file sizes and made more efficient use of larger hard drives due to using a smaller block size. To upgrade, users must reformat the hard drive, which deletes the entire contents of the drive. Some third-party utilities later appeared that preserved the user's data while upgrading to HFS+. Note that 68040 systems do not support booting from HFS+ disks; the boot drive must be HFS.

Can someone please reupload the floppy disk version of 8.0 so that it will run natively on a real mac? It's currently .dsk images for an emulator and you can't do anything with them on a real mac. I had the same problem with the Mac OS 7.6 disk images and someone was nice enough to fix it and upload them. Thanks!

The "PM" word reads "PowerMac", so I don't think these files must work within the 68k emulation.

Yeah, many links are broken because the suspension of my MediaFire archive forever. Now I don't have many ideas to re-upload it all, since I don't have any internal server.

How can i burn it on pc, i tried with stuffit for pc but cant open it, even with poweriso but didn't work

by TrajkLogik - 2011, October 5 - 7:49pm

I think I understand now. If the Basilisk II Router is set in the network tab of the emulator, then you need to manually configure the IP (as shown at Emaculation) in the emulated OS. If using Slirp, then you use DHCP in the emulated OS. Thanks for the upload and the help!

by 24bit - 2011, October 5 - 6:06pm

Hi TrajkLogik, recent builds of BII or SS come with the BasiliskII SLIRP feature included. Slirp is what you want, if you would only like to route the host´s IP address to the emulator. Slirp however, will not give you real networking access inside emulation.
Emaculation.com is hosting the emulator's executables with slirp and some guides.

I was able to install this in Basilisk II, but I'm not able to surf with IE or Netscape - Basilisk just locks up. I also have 7.5.5 that I load with Basilisk II and I'm able to surf with iCab. Under the Basilisk II Network tab, Ethernet Interface is set to Basilisk II Router and FTP ports is set to 21. Is there anything I'm missing, or maybe failed to install correctly? Thanks.

The eMac was booted in 9.2.2 but I don't think it really matters.

I do think so, too. I've modified some Disk Copy disk images in order to boot Mini vMac with, installing Mac OS 7.x on that disk image while running Mac OS 9 native. Booted Mini vMac successful.

Great! Just downloaded this image, burned it into a cd-r with Disk Utility in 10.4, bootable by default obviously. Used it to boot my Centris. Wanted to make an exact copy of my Centris internal hard disk so I booted from this disc, ran Disk Copy from the hard drive in my eMac and saved the disk image on my eMac hard drive using AppleTalk. The eMac was booted in 9.2.2 but I don't think it really matters.

bertyboy: I was burning at 1X. My bad though. I had forgotten to lock the .iso prior to mounting it in Toast. I just did that and the file burned at 2X and verified. I'm going to check this disk now and see if I can install OS 8.

[EDIT] OS 8 successfully installed with no error messages. So the past error messages were because the disk had not verified.

Update: Also, when I try to install 8.1 (and this should allow me install 8.0 since it's a full version) on a real Mac, with an erased 4 GB formatted HD in Mac OS, I get one of two errors and cannot proceed. One error is low memory, where I need to adjust the installer memory to more than 750K, and the other error is a disk error message. Of course I cannot adjust the memory of the installer program since it's on a locked disk.

Three times I've tried burning this image with Toast and each time the disc burned, yet failed verification.

I'm using the same CD's that I've had success with (Sonly). The first time the disk failed to verify was weeks ago, and and then it failed verification two more times today. I've been burning other disks all along so I'm pretty sure it's not my CD/DVD burner.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on? The error code for the last failure was: "Mismatch at byte 11/sector 590. Verification failed."

I don't have a problem installing or running 8.1 on Basilisk II. I can't vouch for this particular .iso download though, I have an original CD which it boots up from and installs.

by iMachinchilla - 2010, August 27 - 11:44am

Someone got it running in Basillisk // ? It asways crashed when I booted from the image.
Well, Mini vMac will come to that point sooner or later.

I just used the Legacy Software version with the iMac installer to install 8.1 on my rev a. Works like a charm!

bertyboy's picture
by bertyboy - 2010, June 26 - 6:16pm

Well of course the rev A iMac won't like it, it was released with Mac OS8.1 + a few minor updates, the Mac OS ROM being one of them, as well as video drivers for the included card (Rage 128 from memory), modem, CD drive and USB.

I had one of these Bondi Blue rev.A iMacs, I uploaded both the Install and Restore CD images to MU - they're not there any more but there were 80+ downloads by members of this site so someone will upload it again.

by atarikee - 2010, June 26 - 5:36pm

Thanks. Seems to work now, but my Rev A iMac hates it. My Beige G3 seems to like it, though...

by SwedeBear - 2010, June 1 - 6:52am

With Toast: lock your image of OS 8.1, mount it. In Toast (my version is 5.2.3 but this applies to other versions) choose the tab 'Other' then 'Mac Volume'. Click button 'Select', choose the mounted image. Uncheck 'Optimize on-the-fly', check 'Bootable' and burn your disk. This should produce a bootable disk or has done so for me. With the older versions of Toast, you had to point out a bootable volume with a Sytem folder IIRC. Anyone with information extending or correcting this is most welcome! Smile

by atarikee - 2010, May 31 - 9:15pm

I have yet to find one OS 8.1 image that's bootable, including this one. They have all refused to boot on every machine I've tried them on. I've burned them with Toast, Disk Utility, Nero (Windows) and Alcohol (Windows) and they still refuse to boot. I've downloaded dozens of different OS 8.1 images, all with the same result. What is the secret here? Every other OS image I've burned works fine.

Well I installed OS 9.2 by just copying the System Folder of OS9 onto a newly formated disk image,
no installer at all..
and that's the one I use in Sheepshaver, that might work for you too.

I've Been using SoftMac way before Basilisk, (because I didn't know Basilisk existed)
and I don't recommend you using SoftMac because it has a lot of glitches, doesn't run many games,
graphics are not always well rendered, it crashes a lot

the older version doesn't crash much but it doesn't have a sound and it has memory limitations
(I still use this older version for testing purposes)

The advantages of SoftMac is that is really easy to set up and it is a standalone program
which can be portable (that's a huge advantage)

but still, Basilisk is much better,
You might want to try it out.

You guys are awesome. Since I've gone intel, i've been looking really hard for ways to run all of my favorite classic games and Mac OS 8.1 on my MacBook. Thanks to you guys, my long, tedious searching is two-thirds of the way finished. Now all I gotta do is install softmac on my windows xp drive, and I'll be back in business.

It has two disk images: Disk Tools 1.img and Disk Tools PPC.img. I assume the first one is for 68K machines.

I Agree, that 8.1 is the Best Classic Mac OS.
I remember when I bought it for $80 Dlls when it came out,
I am so glad I kept the Original CD and brought it with me when I came back to Mexico.

HBeagley - I did the exact same thing, runs great! But I got a Performa 5400. 8.1 is pretty much the best old Macintosh operating system.

Installed it on my Macintosh Performa 6200 and it works like a dream no problems so far, updated my system from Mac OS 7.5.5 to 8.1 no problems yet.....

No update needed, 8.1 already installs by itself. (As in the second screen shot).

by Galane - 2009, September 4 - 8:15am

Does it directly install 8.1 or does it install 8.0 then apply the 8.1 update?
