System 7 Tune-Up install image

Recipe for Mini vMac


Quick Summary

Use the System 6 utility disk image to convert the (North American) System 7 Tune-Up archive into a disk image file that Mini vMac can use.

(This is nearly identical to the British System 7.0.1 install images recipe. One minor difference is that it is a DiskDoubler self extracting archive instead of StuffIt.)

Ingredients

The "Sys6Util.dsk" disk image file, from the "System 6 utility disk recipe".

The "Blanks" collection.

The System 7 Tune-Up archive from Apple:

System7_Tune-Up_1.1.1.sea.bin

Start

Launch Mini vMac

Mount the image file "Sys6Util", such as by dragging the icon of the image onto the Mini vMac window.

Unzip the file "005M.zip" (in the "M" folder) from the Blanks collection.

Mount the resulting "005M.dsk" image in Mini vMac.

Open the "Untitled" disk, such as by double clicking on its icon.

Drag the "Untitled" window lower.

...

...

Make the "Untitled" window larger.

...

...

Launch the "ImportFl" application, such as by double clicking on its icon.

...

Import the file "System7_Tune-Up_1.1.1.sea.bin", such as by dragging the icon of the file onto the Mini vMac window.

Click the "Drive" button to switch to the "Untitled" disk.

...

Click the "Save" button to save the imported archive to the "Untitled" disk.

...

Choose "Quit" from the "File" menu.

Select the image file.

Click the "Open" button.

Select the destination in the platform specific save dialog. (Or, in Linux and other X ports, the file will be saved to the folder "output" in the folder containing the Mini vMac application, with no further prompting.)

...

Choose "Quit" from the "File" menu.

...

Choose "Shut Down" from the "Special" menu.

...

Quit the Mini vMac application, such as by clicking on the close box of its window.

Rename the file "System7 Tune-Up 1.1.1" to "System7 Tune-Up 1.1.1.dsk". (".dsk" is the preferred extensions for Mini vMac.)
