  1. I have worked out the problem. It seems that the Hardware Virtualization Bypasser did not work as it should have even though I'm 100% sure it patched perfectly. I unlocked the otherwise inaccessible Virtualization enabler in my BIOS using the steps mentioned here, as I'm using a VAIO FZ. I can now boot up perfectly on Workstation 7.1.4.
  2. Bump. I've tried searching everywhere and don't seem to have found anyone who has encountered this problem. But still, is there a fix for this?
  3. I am running VMware Workstation 7.1.4 on a Core 2 Duo processor with Windows 7 32-bit. I boot up OS X 10.7.2 on it showing the VMware logo and then suddenly turns into a Stop/Cancel sign where there should be the Apple logo. Image: Since I am on a 32-bit PC without Hardware Virtualization, I used this to bypass it. And I got a warning that I'm running a 64-bit OS on a 32-bit system. So I changed it from 64-bit to 32-bit in the Options as in this image: How will I be able to fix this?
  4. Well, the problem here is that I can't start up the OS X installation. I used HFS Explorer to extract the MacOSX.dmg to my HFS+ formatted and partitoned external hard disk (used GParted for this). During extracting, there were some problems which required the program to auto-rename some folders/files. After extracting, I used MagicISO to create a .iso of the extracted stuff on my ext. hdd. and got a slightly-renamed ISO of OS X. Long story short: I converted the .dmg to .iso in a very complicated manner; so that I can boot the .iso through VMWare. That resulted in some boot.plist error. Anyways, I'm gonna buy a Double Layer DVD on Saturday and get my friend to burn the .dmg through MacDrive. Will that be enough, or will I have to do some more things to make the burnt DVD just like a retail OS X disc?

    How do I install

    Use the links here: OSx86project. I recommend the tonymac86 one. Then use [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to install the relative kexts for your system.
  6. Well, I have made a HFS+ partition on my external hard disk, and if I extract (using HFS Explorer) the DMG onto it, will it boot? What is the patch for MBR partitions?
  7. Thanks for the replies. I don't have a Mac anywhere near me (not even my friends), so I can work with only Windows. Also all my work can only be done through USB drives. My DVD drive doesn't work well. Strange case, no? So, I need to install Mac through USB (I have the DMG). How would I do this (everything without a Mac, of course)? Or is there any guide that explains how would I do everything through Windows and USBs?
  8. Hello, First of all, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, do move it to the correct forum if it so. I want to get Mac OS X Snow Leopard working on my Vaio, which is currently running 2 installations of Windows 7. My DVD drive is not in a good condition, so I want to install OS X through a USB. Also, I don't have a USB drive that is above 6 GB. So I want to make a partition on my External HDD, and then put OSX onto it. Strange situation, no? (I'm only 13, so I don't think I can buy myself another USB drive, without some hard work at least). And so, here is my list of questions. 1. Is there any software for the Windows platform that'll allow me to make a HFS+(Mac OS Extended) partition on my HDD? 2. How would I put the Snow Leopard .DMG into my partition? 3. Would I have to install another bootloader, even though the Windows 7 bootloader already shows my 2 installations of 7? Thanks a lot!
