    Keynote on my OSx86

    Interesting idea, thanks. I'll think about it and report back if I try it. A shame that this can't work in virtual mode, however.

    Oh I see. No, I'm not going to do that. I want to run a Windows machine but need the ability to run Mac OSX (and specifically, run Keynote) in a Virtual Image.

    Keynote on my OSx86

    Thanks very much for the suggestion. In both cases I've installed ML 10.8.3 on the Virtual Machine rather than 'emulated' it. I assume that is what you meant. I'm wondering if it's just that my graphics card is unsupported for QE/CI. I've looked into the Mac's System Information and all it says about Graphics/Displays is: "Chipset Model: Vmware SVGA II Type: GPU Bus:PCI VRAM (Total): 128MB then some device and vendor ids and some details on resolution... nothing specific about QE/CI. Many thanks for any thoughts. ------ Settings?

    Keynote on my OSx86

    I'm very happy to say that I have been able to create two different installs of OSX Mountain Lion; one using VirtualBox and the other using VMWare. They both work reasonably well. My question is around running a particular application: Keynote. I purchased a copy of Keynote but it is unusable on both instances. The slide preview appears on the left bar, but there is no image in the main edit window. Have tried everything I can: 3D graphics are enabled, i've thrown about 128MB of VRAM at it, but no solution. Has anyone encountered this problem? Any ideas or solutions? I really don't want to buy a Mac just so I can use this app. Thanks
