Hello, actually I'm in the same state. I managed to configure my  A1200/060 that Shapeshifter boots to the blinking ? disk symbol to  insert a bootable media. I want to install a 7.6 system first, because I  need it on my A1200/030, too. These are my plans:

- Using 2nd CompactFlash card with 300 MB Amiga partition for Shapeshifter folder and storage (install ISO), the rest is the HFS/HFS+ partition
- 16 GB card for System 7.6, one boot partition, two or three other partitions.
- 32 GB card for System 8, one boot partition, three or four other partitions.

So I need the system tools disk for partitioning first, but I haven't found it yet.
Second  problem, I don't have a CD-ROM on my A1200. I tried with some  ISO-mounting with the file-handler, but I presume my AsimCDFS wasn't  properly installed. It's a long time ago; my Amiga 1200 was defective  and got repaired a month ago. Now, after 12 years I can use it again :)  Of course, some memories have gone missing, especcially because I never used a  CD-ROM on the A1200.

So, does have anyone ideas and a source for the Mac's hard drive partitioning disk?

The 16gb and 32 gb may give your problems:

Download this iso:

It has mac hardfiles and system 7..  enough to get you going, provided you can get them off the CD and on to your amiga.  I did it with a real CDROM in my A1200 and A4000.

don't bother, I wasted a year of my life getting that to run on my Amiga 3000 with a Warp 040 board and while I suceeded in getting the mac to boot it was quite pathetic.
 You can buy a working mac that will be faster for $300.


I used it on an Amiga 2000 with PP&S 040/28 and CV643D video card and it ran quite excellent.
