Help with cpuid for Tiger Guests

Postby joe42271 » 1. Dec 2021, 20:57

I want to start a guest for Tiger 10.4.11. The Host is my MacBook Pro Retina 15".

I own a PowerBook G4 15" but it's down for refurbishing - I'm hoping that someone can help me with the CPUIDSET and other relevant h/w descriptors so I can install Tiger.

I realize I can't emulate the PPC cpu - but Tiger was also available for Intel Architectures, so I plan to install that, instead.

I need the CPU descriptors and sets for a MacBook Pro 15-Inch "Core 2 Duo" 2.2 (SR) MA895LL - MacBookPro3,1 Late 2007...

Would appreciate any help!

My startup shell so far... The things I need are the cpuidset values, and the DmiBoardProduct value...

#!/bin/sh

VBoxManage modifyvm "Tiger" --mouse usb
VBoxManage modifyvm "Tiger" --firmware efi32
VBoxManage modifyvm "Tiger" --cpu-profile 'Intel Core 2 Duo 2.20GHz'
VBoxManage modifyvm "Tiger" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff

HELP - DMI data from a PowerBook G4 machine - anybody?

Postby joe42271 » 6. Dec 2021, 10:29

:?:
Is there anyone with a PowerBook G4 machine or ca. 2008 MacBook Pro who can run DMIDecode and send me the resulting data?

I want the CPU data to force Virtualbox to emulate that specific machine...
