  1. Yes, you can import/convert Parallels machines to Fusion. Download vmware converter (free tool) to do the trick. There's a good tutorial and step-bystep guide on the vmware forums. Instructions: http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jsp...95&tstart=0 Hope this answers your question.
  2. Post YOUR instructions....

    Installation / Configuration Instructions: HP Pavilion zd7000 (nvidia fx5700) devid: 0x0347 OS Installed using JaS 10.4.8 AMD Intel Patched. (Printer, Font, and Translations are personal choices) Chose Patch option according to processor (Intel) Chose Natit NV40 (Nvidia) After installation progress through account creation. In this case, desktop was 1680x1050x32 without CI/QE enabled. Proceed to open a terminal to perform the following changes: (in terminal) sudo -s <press enter> Type password <press enter> at this point, create a backup dir for kexts as a precaution Example: mkdir /Users/youraccount/nvbackup Now, copy the following kexts to your backup - cp /System/Library/Extensions/AGPGart.kext /Users/youraccount/nvbackup cp /System/Library/Extensions/NVDA* /Users/youraccount/nvbackup this will copy all of your related kexts to the nvbackup directory. Before you proceed, check the directory to ensure that they are backed up. I know most of you wont, but I have to mention it. Once you have backed up your files, it is time to remove several kexts and edit some others. Using the information in system profiler, verify the devid of your video card. In this case 0x0347 NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700: Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700 Type: Display Bus: PCI VRAM (Total): 128 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0347 Revision ID: 0x00a1 Displays: Display: Resolution: 1680 x 1050 Depth: 32-bit Color Core Image: Supported Main Display: Yes Mirror: Off Online: Yes Quartz Extreme: Supported Display: Status: No display connected Notice that CI and QE are enabled in this sample - post fix. back in terminal again: cd /System/Library/Extensions/ rm -R AGPGart.kext rm -R NVDANV10Hal.kext rm -R NVDANV20Hal.kext rm -R NVDANV40Hal.kext Now we will edit the remaining needed files. It helps if you know vi for this. I know other options exist, just a suggestion. In each of the files, you will replace the devid with your devid. Example: <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x032210de&0xffffffff..........</string> (each command is simply the command to start the edit process. You must edit and save the file after each change) vi /System/Library/Extensions/Geforce.kext/Contents/Info.plist vi /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAResman.kext/Contents/Info.plist vi /System/Library/Extensions/NVDANV30Hal.kext/Contents/Info.plist Once you have completed the above steps, you need to repair permissions and reboot the system. diskutil repairpermissions / reboot Good Luck!! I hope this helps out - BTW Post any issues and I'll try to help out. Thanks to everyone that has posted valuable files, tutorials, and assistance to the community. There are too many to name.
