You either have to get a copy of Snow Leopard Server somehow, or hack the OS to convince the VM that that you are running Snow Leopard Server.

Apple still sells Snow Kitty Server (well they still did in April when I ordered some copies). You have to call and ask for MC588Z, it's 19.99. The normal sales folk should be able to get it but if you DM I can give you the direct line for someone in sales who specializes in the old stuff.

I will say that virtualizing 10.6 doesn't end up as great as you might hope. A lot of games of that era expected video support that fusion doesn't handle well. It's possible parallels is better in this regard.

I thought we were talking about 2018 mini's. You are fok'd on a future 2020 mini and 32-bit apps. I do not have any worries with my collection of Macs lol.

Photoshop is "quite slow" on a 2016? New Minis aren't that much better...

The m3 was known for sipping power usage not CPU cycles. There is a serious performance delta between the M3-6Y30 and even the base i3-8100 in a 2018 mini.

And while a 2020 Mac Mini would be a logical choice in that case, it would kill off all my 32 bit games... sigh. Life is hard. :(

Just keep a USB drive on the side with 10.14 installed.
