  1. So from what I gather in this thread and from YouTube comments, it would appear that no one has gotten an x64 host without VT support to run an x64 Mac OS X installation using this patch. Is that correct or am I missing something? I just tried it under VMWare Workstation 8.0.2 and 8.0.3 on a Vista x64 host (w/o processor VT support) and could not get it to work. If I chose Mac OS X 10.7 (64 bit), I would get errors stating that it wasn't supported on this hardware. The guest would start and then shut itself down after the error. If I chose the plain Mac OS X (without 64 bit), the guest would start to boot and then I would receive what was described earlier as the traffic wrong way sign. I presume this is because Lion and Mountain Lion do not support x86 architecture. So unless I'm missing something, while this patch does bypass several error messages, this patch does not actually achieve the desired result of running a x64 guest OS on a host processor that does not support VT. Again, if I am missing something, please feel free to correct me. I would love to be wrong!
