Here's what I've tried:

VMWare, VirtualBox, SheepShaver and QEMU didn't work, and PearPC was really laggy.

It works perfectly on VMware Fusion on the newest Macs (or non-Macs if you have VMware Unlocker and FakeSMC). The only requirement is that you patch the CPUID instructions as documented in another thread with:

Code:
cpuid.2.eax="00000101101100001011000100000001"
cpuid.2.ebx="00000000010101100101011111110000"
cpuid.2.ecx="00000000000000000000000000000000"
cpuid.2.edx="00101100101101000011000001001000"


VMware tools don't work, but you can patch VMSvga2 by Zenith432 easily. Here's a build: https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0nNt ... Ig#VMsvga2

You also have the patch: https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/0SdD ... .1.0-Tiger

P.S.: It also compiles cleanly for PPC. So assuming that you build a QEMU PPC machine that contains a VMWareGFX card, it should work with macOS X 10.0-10.4. Not really required since QEMU also emulates the ATi Rage 128 chip.

If you boot from the 10.4.11 Server Universal installer ISO and include the normal non-Server ISO in another virtual CD drive, you can also install to SATA drives. 10.4.11 is the first one to support SATA AHCI. Remember that after installing (possibly via terminal) you also need to install the 10.4.11 combo patch before you reboot. If you use IDE, it doesn't matter.

Turns out i'm just really dumb since qemu worked and the problem was that i forgot to point the batch file to my .iso's directory... -_-

Is the focus on PPC important? You could try 10.4.11 Universal with an Intel-powered emulator, since Tiger was the first to run on Intel Macs, although not the first releases. If I remember correctly, it started with 10.4.7 as a special Mac Pro OEM version. Rosetta emulation would take care of PPC apps.
