this is something very random i stumbled upon while searching on google for overclocking sega stuff. okay get this: i found a thread on some mac forum where a person has claimed to have run macintosh os on a sega cd system. looking through the thread and the screenshots, its a total fake =D
haha stupid dude he is ... Too bad i can't register to this board... I would asked: -How do you display something since the genesis do not have any framebuffer? -How do you communicate between segacd and genesis?
you could probably get MacOS 7.1 or earlier to run on a genesis with a HEAVILY modified system file, and custom written drivers.
i cannot see the thread your referring to, but i dont believe its possible without rewriting a ton of the os code. and you would have a big problem with ram, system 7.1 needs at least 2 megs to boot, and the sega + the segacd probably dont break 256k.
the only thing that is the same between a mac and a genesis is the 68000, nothing else.
btw, the early macs dont use framebuffers i dont think, i think they write directly to the screen with some primitive gpu.
