  1. How to install without burning dvd?

    To comment on this, the ISO mounting feature within VMWare doesn't fully support/recognize HFS+ volumes. This may lead to problems while installing. Most people recommend that you mount the image with Alcohol 120%/Daemon Tools, make the drive available to VMWare and use that instead to install.
  2. The A8N-E has the nForce4 chipset, right? Well, are you trying to install to a SATA drive? If so, nF4 SATA does not work. You must install to a PATA drive. If the aforementioned is not the case (you are installing to a PATA drive), then have you used Disk Utility to partition/format the drive?

    This must be the best OSx86 install DVD ever! Everything works out of the box!

    Just hash check it with your BT client. It will then download any damaged parts.

    I believe there are mixed responses about installing via the VMWare to native method. So, does installing via VMWare work for you?
  6. Does anyone's system crash upon the completion of OSInstall.mpkg? I'm testing the new kernel and I'm wondering if there is any adverse effect on the newly installed system (the new install works)? Specs are in sig if anyone wants to know.
  7. Did you mount the filesystem as writable? mount -uw /
