  1. I've tried several from other sites (http://bobhood.wordpress.com/2009/12/18/welcome-to-snow-leopard-mac-os-x-10-6-and-vmware-workstation-7/, http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-install-o...ows-7-9140301/) and I also used some tools from this site: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=220750 That's a good guess. I did try OS 10.5 and it installed easily, but when I tried to upgrade to 10.6 from within 10.5, it reboots about half way through copying files from the DVD. I'll see if I can find anything from Donk on i7.
  2. I've followed a few tutorials for installing OSX 10.6 in VM Workstation 7 (on my Dell M5400 with an i7 processor and virtualization turned on using a retail OSX10.6.3 disc), but I'm still having some issues. If I manually edit the VMX to say "darwin" and boot with -v, then I get all the way through Loading HFS+ file:... EFI runtime runtime returned 0 Starting Darwin/x86_ And see the gray screen with dark gray Apple logo for a split second, but the machine immediately reboots with the "A Virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state" message. However, I also have the following settings which other forum posts say should work: guestOS = "darwin-64" ich7m.present = "TRUE" smc.present = "FALSE" keyboard.vusb.enable = "TRUE" mouse.vusb.enable = "TRUE" monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware" monitor.virtual_mmu = "software" Any other tips?
  3. Here is my setup: 1. I used Virtual CloneDrive to mount the 10.4.7 ISO image 2. I created an 8GB disk using QEMU (OSX.vmdk) 3. Here is my vmx file: paevm="true" config.version = "8" virtualHW.version = "3" scsi0.present = "TRUE" scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic" memsize = "512" MemAllowAutoScaleDown = "FALSE" ide0:0.present = "TRUE" ide0:0.fileName = "OSX.vmdk" ide1:0.present = "TRUE" ide1:0.fileName = "d:" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw" ethernet0.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.connectionType = "nat" usb.present = "TRUE" floppy0.present = "FALSE" sound.present = "TRUE" sound.virtualDev = "es1371" sound.fileName = "-1" sound.autodetect = "TRUE" displayName = "Mac OS X" guestOS = "winnt" nvram = "OSX.nvram" ide0:0.redo = "" ethernet0.addressType = "generated" uuid.location = "56 4d 47 d9 fb 67 9b 5a-90 59 d9 52 1d 3c 04 68" uuid.bios = "56 4d 80 3a 12 a5 2d ca-eb 6d 30 94 a8 5d 5b a5" ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:5d:5b:a5" ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0" tools.remindInstall = "TRUE" checkpoint.vmState = "OSX.vmss" ------- With this setup OSX installed great. When you come to the OSX configuration screen, make sure you install the JaS updates you need, but don't add things you don't need. I added wireless the first time I installed and that actually caused the system not to be able to boot. Hope that helps!
  4. I found a fix. I changed to guestos="winnt" and I'm now able to get to the install screen. We'll see how it goes.
  5. Thanks for the suggestion. It still failed. If it helps, I'm attaching an image of how far I get also, here's what i see right right before and what's on my mounted boot CD. thanks again!
  6. Thanks for replying Dell Precision M65 (laptop) running XP Pro SP2 (Vista in another partition) Core Duo 2.0GHz, 2G RAM NVIDIA Quadro FX 350M 512MB RAM VMWare Player 1.0.2 Is there anything else that will help diagnose? JD
  7. I've got VMWare setup correctly as far as I know and the ISO image is correctly mounted, but when the CD boots and I press F8 and enter "-v", the startup goes the first few lines, including "Loading Darwin/x86", then the gray apple screen comes up for just second, and then the system reboots. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks, JD Other info: If I don't hit "F8" or press Enter to begin, I see the following different error message "System config file '/com.apple.Boot.plist' not found. Also here is my .vmx file: paevm="true" config.version = "8" virtualHW.version = "3" scsi0.present = "TRUE" scsi0.virtualDev = "lsilogic" memsize = "256" MemAllowAutoScaleDown = "FALSE" ide0:0.present = "TRUE" ide0:0.fileName = "OSX8GIDE.vmdk" ide1:0.present = "TRUE" ide1:0.fileName = "d:" ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw" ethernet0.present = "TRUE" ethernet0.connectionType = "nat" usb.present = "TRUE" floppy0.present = "FALSE" sound.present = "TRUE" sound.virtualDev = "es1371" sound.fileName = "-1" sound.autodetect = "TRUE" displayName = "Mac OS X" guestOS = "freebsd" nvram = "v.nvram" ide0:0.redo = "" ethernet0.addressType = "generated" uuid.location = "56 4d aa 6b 9b 63 04 c1-d2 51 32 6d 43 03 d4 87" uuid.bios = "56 4d aa 6b 9b 63 04 c1-d2 51 32 6d 43 03 d4 87" ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:03:d4:87" ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0" tools.remindInstall = "TRUE" checkpoint.vmState = "OSX 10-4-7 alt4.vmss"
