Hi folks,
So, here is the deal: I have a computer with VMWare Workstation 9 and a retail Snow Leopard image. The computer runs a 32 bits Windows 7 version, and the processor (Intel Core 2 Quad @2.33GhZ) is not supporting Intel VT-x. Is it possible to install my Snow Leopard in VMWare?
Thx in advance!

OK, let's make the question different: I know I can run OS X in VMWare 8, but after the update, my vmx won't start, saying you need Intel VT-x, what I probably patched in 8. Is that possible in 9, too?

If you have no VT-x the you do not run Lion/ML in Workstation - read this

It is. You will have to apply a patch to "fix" VT-X warning. I've tested SL on XP(32-bit) host PC with Core Duo (32-bit only CPU) and VMW7. It worked, but wasn't fast, though...

VMware 8 and up can only run on 64-bit CPUs. VMware 7 does run on 32-bit CPUs.
