I have the same problem, but with 64 MB RAM and 32 MB VRAM. I change the RAM to 128 and ist works fine with 1024 x 768. It seems very tricky. Best is to make a copy of the running system after installing the VESA Driver, before configuring it.

Indeed very very tricky, same settings, VESA driver and Parallels 4:
for me 1024x768 freezes the startup, but if I choice 1280x1024 everything is fine. Confused
In any case it is good to have no problems at the highest resolution Very Happy

Hello NeXT Community: I have Openstep 4.2 happily running on a Mac Mini running Mavericks using Parallels 8. Choose the MS Dos 6.22 OS else it hangs on install , I used the dual channel eide drivers and VESA VBE for color . I'll try N2K driver for networking following advice of Brian Moore and others to configure. Very cool though my Openstep is back!

I had OPENSTEP 4.2 running in VMware, with VMware tools drivers for network, display, keyboard, and mouse. Maybe sound too, I forget. Unfortunately, my OS4.2 VM is broken, so I need to rebuild it. I should get on that.
