I installed successfully snow using local iso file on vmware client and fully updated ok!!.
I have problems this way with Lion, i see problems with dvd ide, so I deleted it, and tryed via boot usb durned lion dvd. Startd ok, i takes more one hour to install, but everithing OK!!! When fully update does not start (i will give more information)
I will try with the phisical DVD on the esxi server. Thanks
Now I will try with Lion Mountain
I had some success with this. My testing steps were: Install Unlocker, test (works), Update patches, reboot, uninstall patcher, reboot, install unlocker, reboot, test (successful). Those steps worked for me without fail, not sure if it falls in line with what you are doing.
Also, some side notes to my previous posts last week. I successfully have all three OS's (SL, Lion, ML) On my ESXi 5 box and all updated without issue.
I did find that I had to use the physical DVD for all of them rather than an ISO.
The only modification I made on each one of them was set the smc.present = "FALSE" on each vmx and then attached the physical SCSI and physical DVD and it would boot just fine and then I could install from there and boot normally after.
If anyone has any fixes for why it won't boot from ISO that would be great. Although, I'm not entirely sure that the ISO was correctly created, so if anyone has some simple steps to verify the ISO creation or how you create your ISO's that would be awesome!
Great work on the Patcher once again!
