@ MikeTomTom - 2018, December 29

You are right, it works! Thanks! I didn't know that trick about Toast. I was always assuming that double-clicking an ISO icon was enough to mount the disc image on MacOSX. And that using the Basilisk II GUI apps (or the preferences of SheepShaver) was enough to mount that same disc image in these emulators. I am learning everyday...

Now that I am sure this software is working fine in emulation, I have uloaded a few more screenshots and updated the description.

I have tried it in Basilisk II for MacOSX w/System 7.5.5. I have done the usual "Easy Install" installation and the ISO image was still mounted on the Finder during my test. All I have got at launch was however...

On a Mac OS X host (lock the .iso 1st to prevent Finder corruption), use Toast to mount the .iso - both Mac & Win parts will mount. Next, launch Basilisk II - when Basilisk boots up, the client Mac OS will "see" the CD and mount the Mac part as an actual mounted CD-ROM on the emulated desktop and this will be enough to trick the installer. No need to add the .iso to the Basilisk II GUI or upload the .iso into an emulated hard drive - or burn it to a CD.

Installed and running on SSW 7.1.1 (Basilisk II)

Curiously, as I was running a pre-Mac OS 7.5 system for this, the installer informed me that it required Mac OS 7.5 or newer to run, but it installed on my 7.1.1 setup anyway and seems to run OK, so...

I have uploaded the 1997 supplementary disc retrieved at the Internet Archive. Since minimum requirements are quite low, it should works fine in emulation.

I have tried it in Basilisk II for MacOSX w/System 7.5.5. I have done the usual "Easy Install" installation and the ISO image was still mounted on the Finder during my test. All I have got at launch was however that disappointing message in an alert box: "A registered Complete National Geographic disc must be in the drive in order to run this application." Solution was probably to burn a CD with the ISO but I was not interested to waste a disc just by curiosity. Sad

I have a version of this that includes the 1970's and the year 1997 on a separate disc. Any interest?

There are 5 CD's, so I am not sure if I should upload it, but if anyone is interested I will.

I'm very interested in seeing all the CD's here.

The Key Gourmet image is a hybrid as intended. You can easily check this by dragging the image onto the Toast application. It will display the type of image you have. You can further check it yourself by then clicking the "mount" button in Toast which should result on two mounted volumes. One of these will be the Mac partition and the other will be the PC partition. Mounting the image may not always work on a modern Mac (as in this case) but that is irrelevant...so long as it mounts on a Mac relevant to the vintage of the software (as your image does) then that is all that matters. Please lock your images before mounting to prevent the MacOS from writing to the mounted image (mainly a problem with OS X).

Hello
I have tried making images using toast, can anyone please confirm that the image contains both Mac and Win partitions on Key Gourmet?

"I could by a CD/DVD drive for my new iMac, but would those images be usable on a 68K?"

Yes, there is the application Virtual DVD-ROM/CD Utility that runs on 68k machines and is able to let mount the CD images.

So, please go ahead with a CD/DVD drive for your current Mac.

In Disk Copy I can only choose the inserted CD, I tried Toast 4 which is the newest version 68k compatible (as far as I know) but it can't create images from a CD as the newer versions can.
Does anyone know a application that can run on a 68K which can create these hybrid images?
Should I upload the images I have or wait?

Both my old PPC machines are gone my old PowerMac 8600 and G4 was sold years ago and my PowerBook G3 won't start. My sister have a old G4 iMac (I think se still have it) which I could borrow but this would take time as we do not live in the same town.
So for the time beeing 68K CD imaging software is my only option.

I have img files made with Disk Copy for 68K

For sure, such images are Mac-only. The Quadra 950 should be able to use the Toast application which creates appropriate CD images containing both Win and Mac partitions.

Disk Copy should also be able to create CD images. When using Disk Copy, please select the CD drive itself, but not the CD inserted.

OK I will upload but, please how do I make hybrids?
I don't have a Windows and all my images are made on my Macintosh Quadra 950 (which is still in daily use) I have no cd or dvd for my iMac.

Yes please, I do second mrdav´s request.

We have discussed this many times, but still:
IMGBurn does perfect CD images on Windows (including HFS CDs), Toast is the first choice for Macs.
Depending on the CD structure, some disks can only be saved as bin/cue - well done apps will tell you so.

Yes, please upload these. I think they are hybrid Mac/PC discs, so please make images that capture both Mac and PC partitions (i.e. do not make img images)
