  1. @Donk: I find out new things every day with vmware also @yozh: This is not possible. You should try alternate methods: 1. Upgrade a woring SL to Lion 2. Donk's vmdk method 3. Install from USB if it works for you 4. Install in Workstation an copy the VM 5. ... please add more if I missed something.
  2. In VSphere, VM properties, I deleted the IDE CDROM, then added a new SCSI device of type CDROM: http://vmzare.files.wordpress.com/2007/02/...eenshot0622.jpg I can add a guide with screenshots tomorrow .
  3. I can confirm also that the patch works fine for Snow Leopard and Lion on a Dell PowerEdge 2900. On a whitebox Sandy Bridge system the CPU ID must be set manually for the SL install to boot: cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" A useful note/workaround for Lion: the IDE controller is not seen by the OS. For me, adding a SCSI CD unit worked very well (edit the virtual machine settings and add the new SCSI CDROM type device to the virtual machine as scsi0:1). The only downside is that SCSI CD needs exclusive access (the unit cannot be mounted at the same time in other VMs).
  4. Thanks Donk, MSoK ! Can't wait to try it tomorrow. Does this activate support Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion? Are there any limitations or a "best practices" guide?

    Introduce yourself.

    Hi everyone. I am interested in virtualization and making OSX work as a virtual machine in my testing environment.
