According to Infoweek VMWare released a closed beta of their Intel Mac product, dubbed Fusion about 2 weeks ago.

Anybody got lucky to be in the first round of beta testers? Curious about Mac OS guest support and maybe 3D graphics so Vista would run Aero.

I just downloaded the beta from vmware and am running it now.

First impressions: Kernel panic after trying to close it without installing an OS.

1.83 GHz Macbook
2.0 GB DDR2 667MHz RAM

The Green Demon is learning Nucleur "Fusion" now.

(Yeah, I know it sucked but you get the point)

Got it from the green demon and it doesn't work. I can't install anything or start pre installed machines.

I was able to install it on my Hack with Pacifist. I can create a new VM, but when I try to start it up, i just get a white screen. See the pic. Could there be some sort of check that vmware has to see if you're using a real Mac?

I tried to boot the osx86 dvd(10.4.8) in osx86(10.4.8 kernel) and it kernel panicked my iHack. The VM turned on just fine though. :S

Does Fusion co-exist with Parallels? Don't want to blow up my hole machine or the Parallels installation by installing the beta.

I, too, get a kernel panic as Fusion nears the end of the install.

After restarting, I'm able to launch Fusion and appear to be able to create a new VM. However, the VM creation wizard never reaches the settings screen (pressing "Continue" instead of "Finish"), and instead launches this new VM to a blank white screen.

The toolbar of the new VM window contains a single, left-aligned tool (expand to fullscreen), which I reckon is a symptom of the partial install. Meanwhile, there are no options available from any menu for changing VM settings.

I have downloaded it, and booted up the installation of mandriva 2007 powerpack. I won't install it, because i have no need of a linux install :P. This is on my Hackintosh.

The vmware installation gave me an error. But suprisingly the app started and right now I'm installing xp from a disk image. It runs very fast und everything looks good so far.
