When you start Basilisk you will see a mostly blank window with some settings tabs on top:

  • Volumes
    • Add the install CD: Click 'Add…', and select the MacOS 7.6 ISO you downloaded.
    • Add the hard disk: Click 'Create…', and find a place to put it, and give it a name. 200MB is plenty of space.
    • If you're on Mac or Linux set the 'Unix Root' path some somewhere useful, EG /home/[username]/.local/share/Basilisk II. You will be able to access this from within the emulator, so you can transfer files easily.
    • The order the drives matters, so make sure the ISO is first.
  • SCSI
    • Defaults are fine
  • Graphics/Sound
    • Video Type: Up to you. If set to window set the refresh rate to something nicer that 10Hz
    • 640x480 is typical to the era.
  • Keyboard/Mouse
    • Defaults are fine
  • Serial/Network
    • If you want to use the Internet set 'Ethernet Interface' to 'slirp'.
  • Memory/Misc
    • 64MB of RAM in plenty
    • 'CPU Type' should be '68030 with FPU'
    • Add ROM File
  • JIT Compiler
    • Defaults are fine
