I've been trying for over a week to get the latest x86 Darwin build installed in VMWare. I've got a trial version of VMWare right now and am only planning to purchase it if I can ever experience success with this.

In short when VMWare boots up from the darwin disc it does not seem to detect my virtual harddrisk. The only boot item I get is "hd (159,0) Ethernet PXE Client"

Darwin/x86 boot v5.0.122
255 memory
VESA v2.0 16MB (V M ware, Inc. VBE support 2.0)

Use keys to select the startup volume

hd (159,0) Ethernet PXE Client

Press Enter to start up Darwin/x86 with no options, or you can:
Type -v and press Enter to start up with diagnostic messages
Type ? and press Enter to learn about advanced startup options



Selecting the PXE client only causes the message "System config file '/com.apple.Boot.pList' not found." This message actually show up initially at boot. Selecting the "-v" or "?" option only causes the screen to be refreshed with no changes. I've tried using several guides and information found on both this forum and others but in looking at all of the guides I never see mention of this problem at this point of the installation.

I've tried installing VMWare on several other computers (I did not think that hardware would make much of a difference but it was worth a try). On all the configuration's I've tried VMWare has failed. I've tried previous ISOs ov Darwin from both the opendarwin site and developer.apple.com. Does any one know how I can either get around this or find a prebuild virtual machine available for download?
