  1. If your not a Mac Genius, probably why your here in the first place, in all likelihood....then this is the place to go for a comprehensive (understandable) guide: http://prasys.co.cc/2009/11/snow-leopard-b...mware-player-3/ The above guide feautres useful download links, and a very easy to follow, logical step by step illustrated guide.
  2. Hi Everyone, I have converted a Snow Leopard DMG file into an ISO. Now I am mounting the ISO in Windows using Daemon Tools with the intention of loading Snow Leopard as a Virtual Operating System within VMware Workstation (6.5). When I attempt to create the new VM, e.g.: install Snow Leopard I am seeing the attached message. Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong here? Thanks very much for your time. Kind Regards, Davo
  3. Hi Everyone, I am currently trying to install MacOS x 10.4 onto an AMD computer. The installation gets stuck at "Still waiting for root device"! Please see the attached image for clarification. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Davo

    Unable to connect to the Internet

    Hello Jackson, Thanks for your attention to my post, sorry that I have not replied to your inquiry earlier. In answer to your questions: 1). I installed the Maxxuss driver the operating system installed. 2). The version of Mac OS X that I am running is 10.4.8. Cheers Davo Hello Mykl, Thanks for your interest in my post. In answer to your questions; 1). I believe that the driver is working, because an IP address had been automatically assigned to the OS. 2). I wasn't on the same subnet (I have since changed this without any improvement in functionality) 3). I cannot pint my host IP. 4). My firewall does not have UDP 53 enabled, however this has not been a concern to other Operating Systems running in VMware Workstation (incl. XP & Ubuntu). I have tried various connection methods, including NAT & bridged. Any further assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Davo
  10. Hi All, I have OS X tiger running through VMware Workstation. However I do not have any internet access. I have looked far and wide, across the great expanses of cyberspace in seeking a solution, and have tried several of these, but I still do not have internet access. I have tried the following in an effort to get the internet working: 1). For networking in 10.4.8, add the line ethernet0.virtualDev=”e1000″ to the file 2). Downloaded the Maxxuss driver here [link: http://######.com/software/Maxxuss-AMDPCNET-v1.0.zip] • Unzip the file to extract the ISO • Mount the ISO in VMware • Make sure you have Ethernet enabled in VMware (host-only, bridged, NAT, etc.) • Boot the virtual machine (there should be a Maxxuss CD icon) • Open the Maxxuss CD • Go into the MaxxussAMDPCNET folder • Create a new folder called 'network' (without quotations) on the desktop • Copy all the contents of the MaxxussAMDPCNET folder in the CD into the 'network' folder • Now copy just the MaxxussAMDPCNET.kext file inside the Maxxuss folder to your home folder (/Users/<yourusername>) • Open a terminal window • Type in the following command and press Enter sudo Desktop/network/install.sh • When prompted for your password, enter it • If all goes well, the command should silently complete with no messages on the screen and it should return to a blank command prompt • If you see some sort of error, write it down and send me a message or post a topic in the forums • Now, reboot the VM and networking should work! I have tried various VMware Ethernet settings, e.g.: Bridged, NAT & Host Only, still without any success. Currently my configuration file for VMware looks like this: config.version = "8" virtualHW.version = "6" scsi0.present = "TRUE" memsize = "412" ide0:0.present = "TRUE" ide0:0.fileName = "Windows NT.vmdk" ide1:0.present = "TRUE" ide1:0.fileName = "E:" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw" floppy0.autodetect = "TRUE" ethernet0.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000" ethernet0.connectionType = "nat" ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE" sound.present = "TRUE" sound.fileName = "-1" sound.autodetect = "TRUE" svga.autodetect = "TRUE" pciBridge0.present = "TRUE" mks.keyboardFilter = "allow" displayName = "Apple OS X" guestOS = "winnt" nvram = "Windows NT.nvram" deploymentPlatform = "windows" virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted" tools.upgrade.policy = "useGlobal" ide1:0.autodetect = "FALSE" floppy0.fileName = "A:" extendedConfigFile = "Windows NT.vmxf" ide1:0.exclusive = "TRUE" floppy0.startConnected = "FALSE" uuid.location = "56 4d 76 ba 74 ec 2e be-7d ed 0e 59 59 e9 c5 1f" uuid.bios = "56 4d 76 ba 74 ec 2e be-7d ed 0e 59 59 e9 c5 1f" ide0:0.redo = "" pciBridge0.pciSlotNumber = "17" scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "16" ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "32" sound.pciSlotNumber = "33" tools.remindInstall = "TRUE" numvcpus = "1" ide0:1.present = "TRUE" ide0:1.fileName = "C:\Documents and Settings\davidd\Desktop\Maxxuss-AMDPCNET-v1.0\Maxxuss-AMDPCNET-v1.0.iso" ide0:1.deviceType = "cdrom-image" ide0:1.startConnected = "FALSE" ethernet1.present = "FALSE" ethernet1.virtualDev = "vlance" ethernet1.connectionType = "bridged" ethernet1.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE" ethernet1.addressType = "generated" ethernet1.pciSlotNumber = "-1" ethernet1.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:e9:c5:29" ethernet1.generatedAddressOffset = "10" paevm="true" ethernet0.vnet = "VMnet8" ethernet0.addressType = "generated" ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:e9:c5:1f" ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0" If anybody can offer any help regarding how to get Internet access going it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dave
  11. Hi Everyone, I have followed the instructions at this wiki; http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Vmware_how_to in the hope of running Apple OS X in VMware Workstation. Here are some specs on the versions of softwares that I am using: VMware Workstation: 6.0.3 Apple ISO: Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2].iso I was able to install the OS, however I am not able to boot into it! The Wiki mentions the following, which I believe is relevant to my challenge because VMware Workstation is complaining about trying to run a 64 bit operating system... Note regarding 10.4.8 iso: JAS torrent will not boot in VMWare (There is no Booting Problem with the latest JAS 10.4.8 Torrent Pre-Patched with PPF1 from the Pirates Bay). AMD torrent works nicely on 32 bit host OS. If BIOS supports Intel Virtualization, it must be turned off or 10.4.8 kernel goes into 64 bit mode and crashes unless you use -legacy switch. I have investigated my BIOS settings and there doesn't appear to be anyway to turn off Intel Virtualization at a BIOS level. As a result I need to know how to perform one of the following tasks. 1). Start OSx in legacy mode. 2). Set VMware Workstation to run the guest OS in 64 bit mode. If anybody can offer answers to one or both of these questions they will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dave
