Premade & Blank Images

Premade images are great for getting started - just drop the file on your SD Card with the correct name and you're all set.

Go here to checkout our premade images.

Now that you're up and running you'll probably want to load some software on your image.

If you're having trouble check out the troubleshooting guide

If you want the full vintage experience of installing and configuring your OS this you're in the right place. You can grab pre-formatted blank images here and drop them on your SD card. Note any blank file will work, these are just pre-formatted HFS and ready to install.

For Macs running Mac OS X 10.11 and up, Disk Jockey allow you to create properly formatted blank disk images and partition them.

For PPC and Intel Macs running Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and up, its sibling Disk Jockey 1999 (page accessible from a vintage machine) creates blank disk images ready for use with BlueSCSI.

Now that you're up and running you'll probably want to load some software on your image.
