  1. Thx a lot and appreceiate all your help : ) My experience is similar; W7 runs Snow much smoother. I was running Lion too in a separate VM till yesterday before i got the 10.7.2 update - now my installation is fubared though i should have take a snapshot. Btw besides OS X i don't think VM8 runs Windows VM's faster or more smooth than the v7. Maybe a little better 3D support but not so different. As you say: "The latest is not always the best".
  2. Thx a lot, i tried this tool too but no joy. I'm still stuck with the beachball. Is there anything wrong with my config file ? I'm so close to go back to VM 7.1...
  3. Thx a lot MSoK for the tip. I converted DMG file to ISO via UltraISO however after the first gray screen i'm getting SBBOD no matter what i do. I really don't know what i'm missing... Appreciate your help. Thx... Here is my config file: .encoding = "windows-1254" config.version = "8" virtualHW.version = "8" scsi0.present = "TRUE" scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic" memsize = "1024" scsi0:0.present = "TRUE" scsi0:0.fileName = "slos64.vmdk" ide1:0.present = "TRUE" ide1:0.autodetect = "TRUE" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image" floppy0.startConnected = "FALSE" floppy0.fileName = "" floppy0.autodetect = "TRUE" ethernet0.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.connectionType = "nat" ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000" ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE" ethernet0.addressType = "generated" usb.present = "TRUE" ehci.present = "TRUE" pciBridge0.present = "TRUE" pciBridge4.present = "TRUE" pciBridge4.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge4.functions = "8" pciBridge5.present = "TRUE" pciBridge5.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge5.functions = "8" pciBridge6.present = "TRUE" pciBridge6.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge6.functions = "8" pciBridge7.present = "TRUE" pciBridge7.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge7.functions = "8" vmci0.present = "TRUE" hpet0.present = "TRUE" ich7m.present = "TRUE" usb.vbluetooth.startConnected = "TRUE" firmware = "efi" monitor.virtual_mmu = "software" monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware" displayName = "slos64" guestOS = "darwin10-64" nvram = "slos64.nvram" virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted" powerType.powerOff = "hard" powerType.powerOn = "hard" powerType.suspend = "hard" powerType.reset = "hard" extendedConfigFile = "slos64.vmxf" ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:a6:9f:00" vmci0.id = "-1012490496" uuid.location = "56 4d 13 b9 78 cf 79 8b-5d 75 b8 15 c3 a6 9f 00" uuid.bios = "56 4d 13 b9 78 cf 79 8b-5d 75 b8 15 c3 a6 9f 00" cleanShutdown = "TRUE" replay.supported = "FALSE" replay.filename = "" scsi0:0.redo = "" pciBridge0.pciSlotNumber = "17" pciBridge4.pciSlotNumber = "21" pciBridge5.pciSlotNumber = "22" pciBridge6.pciSlotNumber = "23" pciBridge7.pciSlotNumber = "24" scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "16" usb.pciSlotNumber = "32" ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "33" ehci.pciSlotNumber = "34" vmci0.pciSlotNumber = "35" usb:1.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0" vmotion.checkpointFBSize = "134217728" usb:1.speed = "2" usb:1.deviceType = "hub" usb:1.port = "1" usb:1.parent = "-1" ide1:0.fileName = "Z:\snowleopard_10a432_userdvd - Copy.iso" mks.enable3d = "TRUE" smc.present = "FALSE" usb:0.present = "TRUE" usb:0.deviceType = "hid" usb:0.port = "0" usb:0.parent = "-1" i'm on win 7 32-bit / 2 GB RAM using VMware 8 with VT-Enabled Intel e5300
  4. Has anyone able to install SL to VM 8 via Donk's patch ? With Donk's unlocker, how could you achieve the installation of 10.6 Snow Leopard ? I point out the DMG file instead of ISO, it tries to boot however after a while it stucks on gray screen before the installer comes up. : (
  5. @ MSoK Still waiting for your guides however in the meanwhile i tried to boot from 10.6 SL dmg file after i applied your patch to a fresh installed Vmware 8. However it stucks right after the first gray screen. Could you at least give some hints till your guide is ready ? Hope it'll be ready soon btw... PS: I need to reinstall my SL cuz my Vmware 7 SL VM do not boot under 8 with your patch... I plan to do a new installation and attach my old virtual hdd to the new one and recover my files from there...
  6. I'm having the exact same issue with my MSI P35 Platinum + E5300 combination. I've tried different methods to create a bootable usb installer [even with myhack 2 beta 1 with new chameleon] however no matter what got the same with you. So what did you do exactly after downloading the boot file ? Could you give a step by step instruction ? Maybe it can help me too to boot & successfully start the installer. Thx in advance.
  7. Even though i replaced the boot file, i'm still getting the same error. Is there another workaround or need to wait for an updated chameleon or chimera ? i'm on MSI P35 Platinum...
  8. Is there any iPhone apps that lists all installed apps to the device (for non-jailbroken) ? Since i'm over 11 pages limit and can't always remember all the apps names i need a simple list at least to look those from spotlight search to open. Apple at least should put an option to spotlight to do this simple task...
  9. Dear Zenith432, May i ask is there any progress ? Can't wait to test : )
  10. That's a great achievement... It'd be really great if iMovie and similar QE software can work... Hope we will see soon, thx Zenith432.
  11. Under SL in VMWare, Is it possible to activate Quartz Extreme ? I believe iMovie and some similar applications require QE so i wonder is there a way to enable QE or at least make software to think it has been enabled ? Thx in advance
  12. Thank you and of course Donk... Now everything seems working correctly and the sound performance is more than acceptable.
  13. Thx so much - this solved my problem and installed SL succesfully even updated to 10.6.2... Now the sound is not working and i'll try to solve it.
  14. Thx for the reply, my cpu is Pentium E5300 with VT; it's a dual core cpu: http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLGTL I built the iso myself and it happily mounts to another vm with 10.5.6... Need to find a DL media i guess ? But many people reported successful iso installation... EDIT: i rechecked the manual pdf file and i believe my problem is that i dont get the darwin screen on page 9. i think it should be there even i dont attach the iso file right ?
  15. Hi guys - i cant seem to install SL to my VMWare Host OS: Windows 7 32-bit Install Media: Retail SL ISO Image File [iSO file is working; i tested under 10.5.6 by mounting it] CPU: Pentium E5300 with VT - VT Enabled from BIOS First I downloaded vmware-darwin-200.zip file and run the installer with admin privileges. And then i downloaded the vmware-darwin-snowy.zip file and copied the darwin.iso file inside to the VMware installation folder. I got Operating System not found error upon i restart VM. My mouse and kb connected via PS/2 btw and i manually configured VMX file accordingly: Here's my VMX file: .encoding = "windows-1254" config.version = "8" virtualHW.version = "7" maxvcpus = "4" scsi0.present = "TRUE" scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic" memsize = "1024" scsi0:0.present = "TRUE" scsi0:0.fileName = "Snow Leopard.vmdk" ide1:0.present = "TRUE" ide1:0.autodetect = "TRUE" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-image" floppy0.startConnected = "FALSE" floppy0.fileName = "" floppy0.autodetect = "TRUE" ethernet0.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.connectionType = "nat" ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000" ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE" ethernet0.addressType = "generated" usb.present = "TRUE" ehci.present = "TRUE" sound.present = "TRUE" sound.fileName = "-1" sound.autodetect = "TRUE" pciBridge0.present = "TRUE" pciBridge4.present = "TRUE" pciBridge4.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge4.functions = "8" pciBridge5.present = "TRUE" pciBridge5.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge5.functions = "8" pciBridge6.present = "TRUE" pciBridge6.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge6.functions = "8" pciBridge7.present = "TRUE" pciBridge7.virtualDev = "pcieRootPort" pciBridge7.functions = "8" vmci0.present = "TRUE" roamingVM.exitBehavior = "go" displayName = "Snow Leopard" guestOS = "darwin10" nvram = "Snow Leopard.nvram" virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted" extendedConfigFile = "Snow Leopard.vmxf" monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware" monitor.virtual_mmu = "software" ich7m.present = "TRUE" keyboard.vusb.enable = "FALSE" mouse.vusb.enable = "FALSE" ide1:0.fileName = "Z:\Snow Leopard Image Files\snowleopard_10a432_userdvd.iso" ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:f2:27:10" uuid.location = "56 4d 15 0d e0 9c fd 47-91 fe af dd 99 f2 27 10" uuid.bios = "56 4d 15 0d e0 9c fd 47-91 fe af dd 99 f2 27 10" cleanShutdown = "TRUE" replay.supported = "TRUE" replay.filename = "" scsi0:0.redo = "" pciBridge0.pciSlotNumber = "17" pciBridge4.pciSlotNumber = "21" pciBridge5.pciSlotNumber = "22" pciBridge6.pciSlotNumber = "23" pciBridge7.pciSlotNumber = "24" scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "16" usb.pciSlotNumber = "32" ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "33" sound.pciSlotNumber = "34" ehci.pciSlotNumber = "35" vmci0.pciSlotNumber = "36" vmotion.checkpointFBSize = "16777216" usb:0.present = "TRUE" usb:1.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0" vmci0.id = "-1712183536" usb:1.deviceType = "hub" usb:0.deviceType = "mouse" tools.syncTime = "FALSE" smc.present = "FALSE" So what am i missing ?
