In Topic: VMware Mac OS X Guest Package for ESX, Workstation, Player, Server and Fusion

Thanks Mac Son of Knife!

The problem is that I do everything remotely, I have a pc in the server room to which I connect via Teamviewer from my mac, and of course the F-keys don't work :) It does boot but it stucks at the boot with timeout on the disk, but it doesn't matter because I could get a SLS vm installed in fusion and then migrated to the ESXi with the standalone converter. After a quick edit of the vmx file it's up and running! Now I need to look into the 10.6.0 -> 10.6.4 upgrade...

Hi all

first thanks for all the effort and hats off for the amazing results.

I have a supermicro X7DB8 with two Xeon E5420, I used to run Leopard Server 10.5.8 VM inside ESX4.0 just fine (but I installed so long ago I forgot the details). Today I moved to ESXi 4.1 with the intention to install 10.6 Server. I maybe missing something, I uploaded and installed the darwin310 package, made a freebsd64 vm and run it once, edited the vmx (attached), pressed F8 at boot and entered rd(0,1)/legacy_kernel -v -f -x, but I get the ACPI error immediately (see screenshot). What I am doing wrong? The image is retail SLS disk, I can try to map the physical dvdrom or rerip it but it works fine in Fusion.


Thanks in advance for your help
