I'm very happy to say that I have been able to create two different installs of OSX Mountain Lion; one using VirtualBox and the other using VMWare.  They both work reasonably well.

 

My question is around running a particular application: Keynote.  I purchased a copy of Keynote but it is unusable on both instances.  The slide preview appears on the left bar, but there is no image in the main edit window.  Have tried everything I can: 3D graphics are enabled, i've thrown about 128MB of VRAM at it, but no solution.

 

Has anyone encountered this problem? Any ideas or solutions?  I really don't want to buy a Mac just so I can use this app.

 

Thanks

Hello.

Welcome

You do not have QE/CI because it Keynote doesn't work ...

What are your settings?
Put in your signature is very best to help you ...

But my solution is that you install OSX not emulate it, many things doesn't work with emulation, one of them is the QE/CI.
If you already have OS X installed on VM then create a USB bootable with OS X(Sl,L or ML) to install it.

download or purchase the image.

Thanks very much for the suggestion.  In both cases I've installed ML 10.8.3 on the Virtual Machine rather than 'emulated' it. I assume that is what you meant.

 

I'm wondering if it's just that my graphics card is unsupported for QE/CI.  I've looked into the Mac's System Information and all it says about Graphics/Displays is:

"Chipset Model: Vmware SVGA II

Type: GPU

Bus:PCI

VRAM (Total): 128MB

then some device and vendor ids and some details on resolution... nothing specific about QE/CI.

 

Many thanks for any thoughts.

Hello.

Ok, but i wanna meant you need realy installe it... install in your hardware.

 

Chipset Model: Vmware SVGA II

Type: GPU

Bus:PCI

VRAM (Total): 128MB

I talk about this, emulation don't use or show your real hardware, only use a fake hardwar to emulate.

Oh I see.  No, I'm not going to do that.  I want to run a Windows machine but need the ability to run Mac OSX (and specifically, run Keynote) in a Virtual Image.

Hello.

You can "split" your HD to run Windows and OS X.
See how: http://www.insanelym...sing-chameleon/

I never tested this guide, but you need have a OS X already installed.

If you have 2 HD you can install Win in one and os X in other, more easy.

Interesting idea, thanks.  I'll think about it and report back if I try it.

 

A shame that this can't work in virtual mode, however.
