The Mini vMac project continues from the vMac project. The goal was to emulate a Macintosh Plus. The project's home page is here. As the project continues, it now includes Macintosh II emulation.

Simply put vMac is a quick & fast Mac Plus emulator. That being said, it will emulate a 68000 CPU with 4 (yes, FOUR) megabytes of RAM. Now you will need a ROM from a plus Macintosh in order to run this. Assuming you have your ROM in a file called vMac.rom you are almost ready to go! Now you need a copy of the operating system. Luckily Apple has made systems prior to 7.6 free, and you can download them below.

This new version of Mini vMac, will emulate a Mac II with a 68020 and 8MB of ram, and will require a rom file named macII.rom. I've found that System 7 works best, and is available below.
Putting it all together
You will need an operating system. For the Mac Plus, System 6 works great, 7 will run as well, but it's kind of memory intensive for a Mac Plus. For the Mac II you really have no choice but System 7 to run properly.
I’d highly recommend a utility called HFVExplorer. This will let you create a ‘hardfile’ to simulate a hard disk, and allow you to move files you’ve downloaded into your hardfile. You can find a copy here:
Ok with mini vMac, your ROM, a hard disk file & the system 7 boot disk you should have enough to have a booting instance. It should be about that simple.
I specialize in the lowest of the low-end spectrum, and I’ll be covering Apple’s older Macintosh operating systems starting from 1.0 and working up to 6.0.8 – and the Macs that run them.
I’m 17 years old. My first experience with Macs was in second grade when we were finally old enough to “graduate” from Apple IIs. My school district is very poor, so even though it was 1997, we were using five-year-old LC IIs.
If you’re already in Windows via Boot Camp, you need to right-click on the Boot Camp icon in the bottom right hand corner of the Taskbar in the classic desktop UI. Installing Windows on a Mac and dual booting it with OS X via Boot Camp is one thing, but what do you do if you want to boot back into OS X from Windows? Mac os yosemite iso download. Here, you’ll learn how to get back to OS X in the event you’ve used Boot Camp to install and use Windows on your Mac.There are one of two primary methods that we tested. We recently toyed around with Boot Camp, loading Windows 8.1 on, and found that getting back into OS X from Microsoft’s desktop operating system may not exactly be straightforward for everyone.That’s why we’re putting this quick guide together. Then, click on “Restart in OS X.” Once you do, your Mac will deliver on what that button promises, and you should be back in the familiar confines of Mavericks (or whatever version of OS X you use) in no time.However, what if your Mac is set up to boot into Windows as soon as you power it on, and you don’t want to go through the dance of having to boot into Windows just to have to get back into OS X every time you want to use Apple’s desktop OS?
We had a 75 MHz Pentium PC at home running Windows for Workgroups 3.11. Even though our PC was by far the more powerful computer, I preferred using the Macs at school due their good looks and ease of use.
I’ve always been interested in why the Macintosh OS has looked so good and was so easy to use from its first release. Windows couldn’t match the flexibility and ease of use of the Mac OS until several versions later.
Emulating Ancient Macs with Mini vMac
I own a Mac Plus, but since it’s so old and slow, I prefer to emulate it using Mini vMac (based on vMac) on my blueberry iMac DV. This’ll also make it easier for me to import screen shots into my articles.
Mini vMac is a Mac Plus emulator based on vMac. Development of vMac has stagnated for a long time, so Paul Pratt decided to continue improving it and created Mini vMac.
To get Mini vMac installed on your computer, first download Mini vMac (link below). The file that you have to download depends on your operating system. I use the stable version of Mini vMac (2.6.1) under OS X.
Just uncompress the archives and put the application anywhere you want to. I would recommend putting it in a folder called Mini vMac. You’ll see why in a minute.
In order to emulate a Mac Plus, you’ll need to obtain a Mac Plus ROM image. Use the CopyRoms utility to copy the ROM image from your Mac Plus to a file. Next, transfer this file to the computer you will be running Mini vMac on. Name the file “vMac.rom” and put it in the same folder as the application.
It’s important that you own a Mac Plus. The Mac’s ROM image is copyrighted by Apple, so if you don’t own the computer, you are breaking the law by using it.
To be able to use your system and program disks with Mini vMac, you’ll need to use a utility such as Apple’s Disk Copy 4.2 to create 400K or 800K disk images. Disk copy 6.2.2 does not handle 400K or 800K disks correctly, so you can’t use this version.
Once you have your disk images made, start up Mini vMac. You should see the blinking question mark icon (above). Now just drag the disk image into the window
If you’ve done everything correctly, you should see the familiar Welcome to Macintosh greeting.

If you’ve made it this far, pat yourself on the back. All the hard work is done.
Once Mini vMac is up and running, you use it just like a Mac Plus. To view the emulator in full screen just type Control-F. If you want the emulator to run at actual Mac Plus speed (8 MHz), press Control-L.
This is just a sample of what you can accomplish with Mini vMac. I’ll cover it more in detail in future columns.
I’ll start by covering System 1.0 in my next column. We’ll see how each of the components of the OS has developed into OS 9.
Later on I’ll cover programs that you can use with system versions below 6.0 and where you can find them.
We’ll also explore why the Mac OS is so easy to use and why it was ahead of any consumer operating system at the time.
