How to run Mac OS Tiger on modern Mac? There’s a lot ways to launch Linux and Windows, but not an old Mac OS X. I’ve googled a lot and gave up to find a working solution.
I need this to run specific software for my old but mighty film scanner.

You will not be able to install OS X Tiger on a modern Mac due to lack of hardware driver support.
Apple's license agreement for OS X did not allow virtualization at all until Snow Leopard Server and Lion, so virtualization software such as VirtualBox, VMWare Fusion, and Parallels Desktop do not support running Tiger in a Virtual Machine.
If you need to run Tiger, your best bet is purchasing an older Intel Mac that shipped with Tiger or a PowerPC Mac that supports Tiger.
