and am running Mountain Lion in VMWare with success however I am not sure where to find the proper drivers for sound. That is my main priority as I want to use Logic Pro for music production. Any tips and help would be gladly appreciated. I have tried the VoodooHDA 2.3 but it doesn't work out. I'm not sure if there are more kexts I need to remove or if this is just not the right driver for this particular system. Help Please! (Graphics directions would also be appreciated). Do I use the same drivers even though I'm running it in VMware or does VMware have it's own special set of kexts and whatnot?

kexts to use when running OSX in VM Ware=0
VM relies on the drivers of the booted OS and passes a set of virtual devices to your guest VM. Update to the VM Tools may be needed, but not sure whats available as I only ever go the other direction using windows bootcamp in VM from Mountain Lion
