I just wanted to share this little trick I discovered. I got my hands on a Macintosh SE/30 with an AZERTY keyboard (in Belgium), and with a dutch version of System 6. When I installed System 7 on it, I wiped the hard drive first, to make sure all the previous files were removed. The issue is, the EN_US System 7 version doesn't have AZERTY support out of the floppy. I could just install the French/Dutch version, which would have AZERTY support, but I'd prefer to use the English version. So after looking for versions in other languages, I stumbled upon System 6.
Hi guys, I just bought a Power Mac G4 which according to wikipedia can use the universal install of Mac OS 9.2.2 -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_9#endnote_A1 (I have the PowerMac G4 (quicksilver)) I installed the OS fine but once the installed OS boots it freezes.

Hi guys, I'm trying to install Mac OS 10.4 on a Power Mac G5 (11,2) The install disc I'm using is a 10.4 Install Disk with Xcode 2 that I bought from eBay. When I try to boot from the DVD I get a kernel panic. The kernel version is Darwin 8.0.0 I then tried to boot into Safe Mode where the topline error is "Unable to find driver for this platform: PowerMac11,2" Looking further on eBay it appears that nobody differentiates versions of Mac OS that are compatible with the 11.2 hardware revision for the G5. When I try to boot into single user mode I get a kernel panic again.
