  1. Hi PCF_Ronin, please try this: (in the directory where you issued "./install.sh"!) cp * /tmp cd /tmp chmod +x ./install.sh ./install.sh cheers, oegie
  2. Ah, ok. Using vCenter together with the patched ESXi hosts does not allow you to migrate the VMs from one host to another. You also cannot move non-OSX VMs around after a few vMotion operations. As a workaround you can restart the Management Processes on the hosts or restart them. Then you can use vMotion again for a couple of times. So the patch works flawlessly in a single host environment, but not in a vCenter context. But that is definitely better than not being able to run OSX...
  3. Hi thasmots, Could you please describe what you mean with "working perfect with vCenter"? Is it now possible to start OSX VMs through vCenter and also to move them around in the cluster? This would be indeed perfect! cheers, oegie
  4. Hi, is there any documentation out there how to modify a vanilla Snow Leopard installation so that it runs on ESXi 5.0 in "hackintosh" mode without the need for an Unlocker? Or is there any method to overcome the need to restart my Management Services every 4-5 vMotions already known? Any help would be greatly appreciated... :-) Best regards, oegie
  5. Hi MSoK, do you all use xserves or other mac hardware? Do you run OSX on esxi 5 (vanilla) on a Mac Pro or maybe a Mini (Server)? I've read that it should be possible, is it? best regards, oegie
  6. Hi, as for my understanding you do not need to change settings and also you do not mount the image inside your Windows. You just have to export the usb stick to the VM by using the vSphere client. Can't check the name of the menu option right now. Maybe someone else can post it. Should be somewhere in the guest menu. Then you reset the vm and the installer should start. bye, oegie
  7. Hi Mpk, you can always select Mac OS X as guest in the plain vanilla ESXi 5.0. But you can't start the VM unless the host beneath runs on certain Apple hardware. ;-) cheers, oegie
  8. hi a3897431@nepwk.com, you just install the patch and reboot. The deinstallation just removes the changes you have made previously and restores a plain vanillla esxi. So you do not want to deinstall as long as you want to run OSX natively ... cheers, oegie
  9. Hi Donk, it's sad to hear that. The behavior does not change when selecting 10.6 (x64). As soon as i select for example FreeBSD the VM starts - but does not find the bootloader anymore and resets. I wonder if this works on XServe hardware ... So no vCenter support for OSX VMs and therefore no vMotion for us. *snief* bye, oegie
  10. Sorry, my last answer was a little cryptic: You have to create the VM first as 10.6 guest. Then you change the settings of the VM to 10.7 (on the second tab of the change settings window) cheers, oegie
  11. You just have to scroll higher. It's right at the top of the list. Above the 10.6 guests ;-) EDIT: This only applies after the creation of the VM. In the first selection there is no mentioning of 10.7.
  12. Have you tried to create a esxi installation on an usb stick on some other non-apple system and using this stick to boot esxi on the Mini? It worked that way for me an my MBP. Once installed the keyboard worked and the esxi was useable...
  13. You are trying to install via CD-ROM. This does not seem to work at the moment, because Lion does not see the device inside the VM. Try to install via usb boot stick (i used Lion Disk Maker for the creation). This worked for me flawlessly.
  14. Running into the same problem as Dragon Draco: It's not possible to start an OSX vm from vCenter. It tells me that the guest os 'darwin11_64Guest' is not supported. This also prevents the vCenter from doing a successful vMotion.
