Reading Strimer's post about Parallels (just under this topic in Virtualization, Emulation, and Crossover) it appears the same problem happens in Parallels as in Fusion. Now other than the CPU, they do not really share anything else in common. With regards to the CPU, it is basically the only thing not emulated. What about removing any CPU-related kexts such as any power managements ones or SMBIOS? Since essentially the CPU is passed on directly to the VM, any kexts that we have to remove, replace or modify to get it working on our hacks might apply to the VMs as well. Why isn't this so with running Fusion on a real Mac? Who knows...but it's worth a shot. Anyone know how to create an Extensions.mkext of the Extensions folder on the DVD without the CPU-related kexts?

And yes, I did try it on that HP DX2300, same result - Galaxy wallpaper with spinning beach ball.

brbo - yes. use the extensions.mkext from the JaS DVD. you will need to replace them on the installed HDD image as well (find the drive in Finder, double click it)

my VM locked up earlier during a software update to 10.5.5, anyone else have this problem?

Are there any new developments on this? Does anyone know what kext file doesn't work on a hackintosh? The problem is the extensions.mkext is a cache file of your current kernel extensions. As a result, you really can't just copy it from the JAS install to this. Otherwise when you make changes, your JAS cache extensions.mkext will get overwritten and your system will no longer work. It certainly sounds like a good work around to getting the system booting.
