  1. LG P300 - Will it work?

    It works - the internal ps2 keyboard doesn't work but USB keyboards do. I don't know if sound is working..
  2. Hey uniqueOSX, I had the same/very similar issues with VMware as you do. However, I don't have a Sony Vaio but a LG P300 with Penryn cpu. On a freshly installed Windows XP system (with just the graphics driver installed) Jas 10.5.2 would install and boot just fine using Vmware 6.5 beta. Same goes for Leo4VMware image by ~pcwiz. After I installed some programms it didn't boot anymore. I found the culprits to be the "Cisco VPN Client" a programm called "Battery Miser" and the "Zonelabs Zonealarm firewall". When preventing these 3 programs from starting everything works flawlessly for me. So if one of them is installed on your system try removing/disabling them. If that doesn't work you could create a 2nd partition and do a fresh Windows installation on that partition and install just the graphis driver. Then try VMware on that partition. There might be other progamms besides the three that I found which cause the CPU error. Good luck, mcgyver100
  3. Hacked PS/2 Driver :)

    Hey Phanter- thanks for your advice. I was going to try what worked for you but when I enter sudo nano /etc/rc in terminal nano just opens a blank file. I don't seem to have the rc file. With MacDrive (from Windows) I can see that I just have a rc.common and rc.netboot file. I am using Kalyway 10.5.2 vanilla kernel. Any idea why I can't open the rc file? Thanks in advance, mcgyver100
  4. Hi arshmenarnar, Can you tell us what kext files you deleted? What Laptop are you using? Deleting the ACPIPS2Nub.kext didn't work for me. I am using an LG P300 (ps2 keyboard) with Kalyway 10.5.2 vanilla kernel. Thanks, mcgyver100
