Thanks go out to xplOde who originally wrote the basis of the guide.

As I mentioned this is based on xplOde's guide; the only difference is there were a lot of steps I didn't need to take for some reason and therefor a lot of people were confused and chattering about it so I decided to do a rewrite.

Before you begin:

  • You will need a CPU which is SSE3 enabled if you want to use Rosetta which lets you run PPC applications under the x86 version of Mac OS 10.4.1 [You can still use a SSE2 enabled processor you just will have to wait for apps to be coded for the x86 platform.]
  • To check and see if you do have an SSE3 or SSE2 enabled proc you might want to check out CPU-Z

You will be needing the following items:

  • You will need a working copy of Windows XP running and booting normal.
  • Knowledge of computers
  • Mac OS Tiger x86 Developer Kit Install DVD, I really hope you obtained this legally.
  • A spare IDE drive with about 4GB of space for a minimal install. (SATA is not known to work with a native install atm)
  • VMWare 5
  • UltraISO
  • (Courtesy of xplOde's wonderful guide)
  • PearPC (Once again from xplOde's guide)
  • HDD Image (Yep again from xplOde's guide)
  • Darwin 8.01 Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Mirror 3 (Mirror 3 requires an AppleID which is totally free on Apple's website.)

Now that we got all that out of the way let's get to work.....

How to install Mac OS 10.4.1 x86 Version Natively
Assuming that you have a DMG already of the Mac OS Tiger x86 Developer Kit Install DVD, you will need to open UltraISO and click Tools and Convert. Select Standard ISO and click convert.
Unzip the onto your desktop or wherever you want. (Remember where you put this)
Now we need to unrar the 3GB image file. This may take a moment depending on hardware.
We need to edit the ppc.cfg in the PPC directory, set the cdrom to be the be the ISO of the Dev DVD and the main hdd the image you unrared a moment ago.
Now right click on the ppc.exe and click create shortcut. It should create a shortcut.
Next right click on the shortcut and at the end of the target field type ppc.cfg
Double-click the shortcut and selects 1, which should be your cdrom.
This should bring up the 10.4.1 installer, just run through this (do not select fonts, extras or anything extra so it can install onto the 3gb image, you can get these later if you burn it to a dvd). It may take awhile once it starts installing, so get a coffee, get some lunch, maybe get laid?
Once it is done and reboots it will close out the emulator. Open the shortcut again and run it till you boot to the desktop all the way and shut it down.
Now you need to open VMWare up and create a new virtual machine.
Custom -> New -> Other -> FreeBSD -> Select RAM -> Bridged Networking -> Buslogic -> Use a physical hard disk -> Select which Disk you want to use (Make sure you select entire disk as this is the only known way to work) -> Select HD Name -> Finish
Now we need to edit the new virtual machine, edit the CD-ROM drive to be pointing to the ISO of Darwin.
Next we install Darwin, so click the play icon to boot up the system.
Click escape to open the boot menu and select cd-rom drive.
It should boot into the installer, type 1 and press enter to install it into your native hdd you selected earlier when creating the Virtual Machine.
Next type 2 and press enter to manually partition the drive.
Type the following commands:
auto hfs

  The above command will give an error. Ignore it

Now all we need to do is run through the installation.

  Take care to note what you typed as your root password.

Now select to reboot and turn off the machine before it starts back up.
Edit the Virtual Machine and change it from using the Darwin ISO to the Stuff ISO in the listed at the top of the page.
Boot up the Virtual Machine and boot into Darwin, login with the root username and password you selected earlier.
Now we should be at a shell prompt, we need to do the following:
