I downloaded OPENSTEP 4.2 from the BETAArchive FTP and since I had read on http://vpc.visualwin.com/ about how OPENSTEP won't work in VPC, I tried some different emulators. I tried it on Bochs and on VMware and both times it stopped at the following window:

And never continued.

Is there a special way to get this installed? Can it not be emulated?

I think that the problem might lie in the video drivers, cause I do remember having a similar problem with rhapsody but I never found a way around it.
Somebody did link an openstep vm for vmware with working video and network drivers, cant remember which post it was though.

mdogg,

intellivision's advice rings bells with me. (It was long enough ago that the details are lost in the mists of middle aged memory).

I would definitely suggest that you add the verbose flag to the boot command in addition to whatever other remedy you try. It will replace the graphical boot screen with a text-oriented one. This, in turn, will allow you to see the log messages as the boot process proceeds.
