Hi, I am trying to install SnowOSX_Universal_10.6432GM_v3.5 on VMWare however when I boot the machine I get the error in the attachment. I have tried changing the OS to Windows NT, FreeBSD, Other and Darwin. However when I chose Darwin I got that error from VMWare.

Also, I burned the DVD and booted it on my Physical Machine and I got as far as the Disk Utility, however, I can't format my main drive :(

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

System Specs:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 @ 2.00GHz
MEMORY: 4GB DDR

Seems you didn't even try to read any of this before installation

this error that can be easily solved editing the .vmx file with notepad. open the .vmx file with notepad and then add or edit these if they are there change the values to these :

guestOS = "darwin-64"
ich7m.present = "TRUE"
smc.present = "FALSE"
keyboard.vusb.enable = "TRUE"
mouse.vusb.enable = "TRUE"
monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware"
monitor.virtual_mmu = "software"


specially the guestos should be changed from freebsd to darwin and use the point the cd/dvd drive to vodoo.iso and restart the vmware and also most important is that the value of smc.present should be FALSE and if the other lines are not there add them

Actually for SL it should be:

guestos = "darwin10-64"

As the version being used is not a retail vanilla version though it could be all sorts of issues. Really do not see the benefit of doing anything other than vanilla installs these days.

Hey guys :

Getting "A Virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state" error booting my Snow Leopard 10.6.8 VMWare OS ... I have read many threads on Insanelymac and other forums to no avail .. Read my Host OS build in my sig ...

I edited my ".vmx" file according to the instruction found on many forums, nothing. I tried setting guestos="freebsd" and "freebsd64" that's when I get that error ... If I set guestos="darwin10-64" or "darwin-64" I can't boot unless I do from the "dawin_snow.iso" CD Image ...

So bottom line is with guestos="darwin-64" I can boot from CD and anything else like guestos="darwin10-64" or "darwin-64" I get the "A Virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state" error !

My .vmx file is as follows :
