wait - you just answered my question! Could I convert a Parallels install of OS X to a VMware one?

Has anyone gotten this to work on a Hackintosh? Beta 2 and RC1 both boot up, the galaxy screen comes up and then you get a spinning globe. Never got any further on two different machines.. Any tricks to getting this to work?
maybe FrankOS_Scripting can give some more detail on the hardware and kext used on the machine that is able to boot virtualized OS X?

I also tried it on my Macbook, but it's a 1st gen and only has a Core Duo (no 64-bit support) and only 1 GB RAM. It would start to boot, then lock up at the gray Apple boot logo. Anyone else experience this? Thanks!

Has anyone released a prebuild Leopard Server Image for VMWare Fusion? I'm curious if it is just the installer that doesn't work on a hackintosh, or if there is something else that makes this not work.
I've gotten the prebuilt Tiger image to work.. I've gotten the PCWiz Leopard image to run, but no reliable networking support.

So I'll start with replacing the easy - SMBios, then go with System.kext. If nothing I'll plug in a spare HD and try reinstalling my Kalyway disc. That one worked very well for me until I borked it playing with different EFI emulators and whatnot...
Anyone else have anything to add that might work?

I read one user reporting the same thing we are experiencing on Fusion beta support forum (and he told he had a real mac pro). on the same forum I also fund a bug report about booting install DVD/iso on 32bit core duo macbook and devs said that now they are aware of it should be fixed in final Fusion 2.0. well, guess not. i then installed OS X on macbook pro and transfered disk image to macbook and all worked fine.
btw, parallels 4.0 beta runs OS X quite a bit faster on my macbook. but I can't boot OS X (nor Boot Camp partition) on hackintosh through parallels 4.0 beta.

Only one more thing to try and that's a Vanilla install with Boot-132.
On a slight side-note: I also tried installing just plain old Leopard with it (after modifying the necessary files in VMWare) and it gets to the same point - the galaxy wallpaper with a spinning beach ball. I have tried different methods to create an ISO of both Server and Client Leopard DVDs and have also tried booting from DVD and nothing seems to work. I have taken (as a test) the Leo DVD and began an install on my Macbook...it works! So I KNOW the media is good.
I usually don't obsess over trivial things (do I really need Leo server in a VM? No, I just wanted to see it work. I usually give up on things when they don't work and there is not easy (or moderate) way of doing so, but for this I can't stop. I think I need help
brbo: I also tried Parallels Server and could not get it to boot Leo Server without it crashing both th VM and Parallels (though if I relaunched Parallels, it took me straight to my running VM, so it appears that just the GUI crashes.)
