  1. Hello all. I have an HP dv5tse running 32-bit Windows 7 with Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor, which is currently running Windows 7 Ultimate brilliantly. I've made a 20 GB unallocated partition using EASEUS Partition Manager, and I'd like to install Snow Leopard on that partition. I'd prefer to install Snow Leopard on the existing setup rather than do a clean install of Snow Leopard and then install Windows. I've made a 16 GB flash drive with an image of the Snow Leopard retail DVD (using TransMac) and ModUSB (installed using Snow Leopard on VMware). However, when I try to boot from this USB, my laptop doesn't recognize it and bypasses it and boots from the hard drive. How can I install Snow Leopard onto this second 20 GB partition? Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Thanks all. Yes, I forgot to mention that I have 3GB RAM, so I'm not expecting lightning fast speeds here. I actually found a Hazard iso for Snow Leopard 10.6.6, and I found directions here: http://www.insanelym...-non-vt-x-cpus/ on how to install it without vt-x (according to my calculations my busratio is 10). So far I've successfully installed it and booted it from the VMware hard drive; however, when I rebooted after it installed, it took me to the Chameleon page, and I still had to type in "-v -f busratio=10 cpus=1" and hit enter to get it to boot properly (takes forever to start up). I also downloaded the darwin_snow.iso file so I could install VMware Tools; it's installing right now. Question: Is there any way to transfer my trackpad scrolling capabilities to VMware? I have a Synaptics TouchPad V6.5 with two-finger vertical and horizontal scrolling.
  3. Hi, I have an HP dv5tse running 32-bit Windows 7 with Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor, which, according to Microsoft Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool, does not have hardware virtualization capabilities. I've been searching for a few days with no luck for a way to run Mac OS X through VMware Player or VirtualBox. Since my laptop is 32-bit, I understand that Snow Leopard is the highest I can go (please correct me if I'm wrong). Is there any way at all to run Snow Leopard without hardware virtualization? Any info will be appreciated. Thanks.
