I need your help for making Basilisk v 0.8 work.
My configuration is:
Windows NT workstation 4 SP6
Pentium 3 450Mhz
Hard disk SCSI 4,3 GB
Hard disk IDE 6,4 GB
Internal Syquest 200 MB reader
CD-ROM Asus 40x
I installed MacOpener r3.0 on my Win NT that, as you
know, allows me to
read and format the Mac disk. I installed MacOS 7.6.1
from the CD on a 200
MB card of the internal Syquest reader; everything is
working well (except
the desktop screen that doesn't appear).
I added to the SCSI chain a 256MB SCSI Hard disk, HFV
formatted. I took it
from an old LCII and it is easily recognized by NT.
I named the 256 Hard disk "MAC" and I installed the
MacOS successfully (I
can also see the desktop). I utilized many
applications (Open transport,
TCP-IP, freePPP), I surfed on the web and I checked
the mail with Eudora:
everything seems to work.
Something weird happens with the trash. When I'm on NT
and, from a
hard disk, after trashing something (even an empty
folder) a message
"Impossible deleting the file..... Error in the File
After this I'm not able anymore to launch Basilisk
from the Hard
disk 256 where the MacOS used to be and I loose all
I found the NT trash in a "recycled" folder into the
I noticed that this problem doesn't occur using the
because it has not a trash.
Files are directly deleted and they're not just
shifted in the trash.
Then I modified the NT trash properties. I set
the "MAC" disk for not
reserving any space to the trash and to directly
delete, like the Syquest
does. No result, this option didn't solve the problem.
I also try to format the "MAC" disk as NTFS or in FAT
Again no result, even this option didn't solve the
What do I have to do? Of course I can use the Syquest
but I'd prefer to use
the hard disk.
I hope you'll find a way to fix this problem.
Thank you for your help.

um ... it kind of sounds like you've directly mounted a mac
formated hard drive. the basilisk gui interface gives you
specific warnings about this when you choose to do so.
i tried taking a hard drive from an old mac and adding it
to my system. the emulated mac saw it three times. it
worked great. it seemed to me that disk access was faster
than it was from the normal basilisk HFV drive file. i
thought it was a great idea until it simply stopped
working. i have no idea what i did, but that drive simply
wouldn't respond to anything but a repartition/reformat
after a few uses.
