Love the idea of having to pass a quiz to post. Hopefully I don't noob my question too much.
I followed and tried the guides I have found online, and then I fell on here to install OSx on VMWare Fusion.
My main purpose is that I have an older app I want to run (Homeworld 2), but because it requires a PowerPC, only 10.5/10.6 will support it. (my legit installs)
I have the retails disc for 10.6, but the original install disc for my MBP for 10.5...and now that I am writing this, that might be my issue...but who knows.
Basically, I have the following:
OSx 10.7 Lion
Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,2
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.66 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 8 GB
Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MBP52.008E.B05
SMC Version (system): 1.42f4
My install disc is the disc that came with my laptop, version 10.5.
I followed a guide here: http://blog.michael....are-fusion-4-0/
I didn't end up making it work, but it did give me a better idea as to why I can't load it natively.
From the comments, I came here and I have since tried and retried to make it work, but after having registered, I did realized that I was attempting to run the install from a 10.5 disc that is for my MBP. Could this be the reason why I can't install it under VMWare Fusion 4.1.1 ?
My only solution other than VMWare Fusion is to dual-boot into 10.5 (haven't looked at guides for this yet), but I imagine that can work. Obviously running 10.5 virtual would be better, if only to provide me with my game over the virtual session.
Anyway, when I attempted my install, I see the Apple logo boot screen, the little spinning icon, then the Apple logo turns into a Circle+X and just hangs there are the install.
The guide here seems to focus so much more on VMWare Workstation, etc. Can someone link me to a guide specifically for Fusion 4.1.1, or at least confirm if it works?
One thing I did notice, is that VMWare Fusion had 10.7 as an option, after running your patch. It still didn't seem to go.
Thanks to any and all help!
