I have an iMac G4 (PowerMac4,2 | 800MHz), and I want to try Mac OS X Server 1.2 on it
Mac OS X 10.1 to 10.4, and classic Mac OS 9.2.2 work pretty fine
I downloaded a disc file of ver 1.2v3, that supposedly works in the eMac, but it doesn't boot :(
The first eMac and the iMac I have shares a lots of specs, so it should work
I tried installing from Mac OS 9.2.2, and nothing (Missing folder)
Tried to boot from OF, nothing (
Code:
DEFAULY CATCH!, code=70 at   %SRR0:  ff8494a0   %SRR1:  0000b030
)
PS: The PRAM battery is dead

You can get cheap PRAM batteries in eBay. Here is a link to one of them

Only for 9 dollars

Edit. I mis-read your post.
Version 1.2 only works on some G4 Macs. According to the system requirements, it doesn't look like the iMac G4 is supported. It will run on Power Mac G4s. Version 1.0 only runs on a few Power Mac G3 models.

But, according to Apple, the eMac (first model) is compatible

Interesting. Did not knew the eMac was supported. Is your eMac a later model with ATI graphics? Mac OS X Server is pretty strict with compatibility.

Nope
I don't have an eMac, but the iMac I have is basically the same as the first eMac, just that it is PowerMac4,2 instead of 4,4
And I don't know why it doesn't work :C

Well, if the iMac G4 isn't supported, then it won't work. There is a way to run it in QEMU, though. The latest PPC build of QEMU can run Mac OS X Server 1.0, and I've seen people successfully run it. However, installing it is a bit complicated and I've only seen the Windows version of QEMU work. I'm not sure if there is a native PowerPC version. And I myself have not touched QEMU in months.

Honestly, even if you got it to run in the iMac G4, I'd imagine poor driver support. To me, it's kind of like trying to install Snow Leopard on a Mid-2012 MacBook Pro Retina.

And someone knows how to get MOSX Server running on the eMac?
'Cause I don't think internet is going to help a lot :P

Could you explain what you mean by "missing folder"? Is the install CD recognized by macos properly?

I mean, by the OSes yes, but for OF, no
Both the OS9 and MOSX aren't recognized by the Startup manager, and when I tried to boot BootX directly from OF, I get the error from the original post

Yep
I've done some research, and the iMac G4 has a different architecture that the eMac and any compatible MOSX Mac :cry:

So now, for me, it's very unlikely that the system will boot :(

At least I discovered that in the eMac the BootROM is connected through the PCI bus and in the iMac through CardBus :P
