  1. Except tseug's script was never supposed to be used with the InstallESD.dmg directly but with the Install Mac OS X.app. This didn't work for Asus U36JC though. Installer refuses to boot. But I doubt getting Lion (or Snow Leopard) onto that machine is gonna be easy. Most guides are made for some kind of Gigabyte board (desktop pc). Wonder why Gigabyte boards are particularly compatible with Mac OS X. Does someone have an answer for that? I even got a P45 chipset board but from MSI (MSI P45 Neo-F) and that does not fly as smooth as Gigabyte boards with same chipset. You would think the hardware were mostly similar having the same chipset and peripheral chips (same Realtek audio and network).

    Unable to find driver for this platform \ACPI\

    Has anyone gotten Lion running without a DSDT.aml file? I know Lion has a new kernel which may complicate things.
  3. I didn't have any issues. I just converted InstallESD.dmg to .cdr using Disk Utility on my Hack. Then I created a new Mac OS X Server 10.6 64-bit" vm in VMWare Fusion, booted the install .cdr image. After a couple of reboots it stalled but thats because I had to choose the correct boot.efi executable in the EFI menu in VMWare Fusion. Then I was on with stage 2 of the install and soon after I was running Lion. I then copied the VM over to my Windows partition and launched it in VMWare Workstation. Plain sailing. Just make sure you have a legit "Install Mac OS X" app from App Store. You never know what happened with those something something out there. But I run with a compatible CPU (Core 2 Duo). Maybe there are issues out there for you i3, i5, i7 owners. If you want to install from scratch in VMWare Workstation (not Fusion) you must change the CD-ROM from a IDE device to a SCSI device. It will not boot otherwise. Fusion by default uses a SCSI device. Albert's Unlocker does not fix this so you have to change it yourself. Also you need to use the Disk Utility once booted to partition the harddisk as VMWare Worksatation does not auto-prepare a "Macintosh HD" disk like Fusion does.

    Can't mount DMG

    I'm having this issue as well. I installed using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] OS X 10.6.3, then updated to 10.6.8 using Software Update. This caused USB to stop working so I found a .pkg that installed older versions of IOUSBFamily.kext which brought USB back. After this I can't mount .dmg files. Console says: 7/9/11 2:15:38 AM [0x0-0x1a01a].com.apple.DiskImageMounter[223] 2011-07-09 02:15:38.592 diskimages-helper[226:2103] ERROR: unable to load disk image driver - 0xE00002C0/-536870208 - Device not configured. My hardware: mb: msi p45 neo-f cpu: core 2 duo 3.6GHz ram: 4GB EDIT: After running the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] installer from tonymac I fixed the mouting of DMG images again and I can also boot from the HDD (without using the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] disc). But then I lost sound so I guess I have to install the sound drivers as well.

    Can my PC run OSX Snow Leopard

    how about turning this into a general "can my system run os x snow leopard" thread? My hardware: motherboard: MSI p45 Neo3-F (rev1.1 board) cpu: Intel Core 2 Duo (codename Wolfdale) 45nm 3.6GHz dual-core graphics: geforce gtx 260 I run OS X in vmware fine using the unlocker method. but I would like to try it bare metal. I can't seem to get the installation going from USB (sandisk cruzer 16GB). the installation failed halfway through. I was using the nawcom modusb method. but when restoring my os x install disc .DMG to the usb stick it somehow runs out of memory during the verify phase. I used my virtual OS X to do this and it has 2GB RAM allocated.
  7. so this is only for computers with Intel processors? Any way to run this in vmware with AMD cpu? I'm just getting kernel panics on boot (retail Snow Leopard), and don't know how you set up other bootloaders to work with vmware. I guess Chameleon patches things up enough to work with AMD. I do have AMD-V enabled in Bios. Currently I'm running a pre-packaged VM with OS X Leopard 32 bit (using FreeBSD as "os"). Which runs very slow.
  8. I did use the uninstall shell script but it didn't seem to remove everything. Anyways I don't have anything important. Easier to just reinstall everything. It just takes time but I'm doing other stuff in the meantime.
  9. After upgrading to latest beta darwin.iso I upgraded VMWare tools (reinstalled from the new darwin.iso) then installed guestd patch and the vmsvga II driver from Zenith. but the "fit guest to window feature" is broken. Guess I have to reinstall OS X from scratch then as something is screwed up on this system now. Using VMWare Workstation 7.1 on Windows 7.
  10. New beta working but it wasn't perfect. First boot = kernel panic (gray screen) Second boot = freeze at Chameleon boot logo Third boot (this time with -v) = success! Also are you then supposed to mount the darwin.iso and install VMWare Tools then Zenith's drivers and guestd patch? to upgrade these components as well. EDIT: Scratch that.. seems like it is stuck after reinstall of VMWare Tools.
  11. so nothing dramatic has changed with regards to virtualizing OS X in VMWare then? no new features etc..

    Installing SL AFTER Windows...

    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14495/ukelele Ukelele lets you edit your keyboard map. I use it on my Hackintosh to get normal PC layout instead of having the @ key where I expect to find ' and * on a Norwegian PC-105 layout keyboard. Also had to use it to get back | character which seems to be missing here when you are not using a real Mac keyboard.
  13. I fixed it. added the vmware-tools-userd (user daemon?) as a hidden login item. So now I got copy & paste to-from the VM working. EDIT: I just restarted the VM and then I got a message that vmware-tools-userd was already running so seem like it was installed properly after all. Ah well. I just leave the login item there anyways in case it fails to start on boot another time. Seems like this VMWare tools can be fair bit of glitchy at times. Its not supposed to be running on Windows after all. (even though I suspect VMWare Inc to be experimenting with this themselves a lot).
  14. vmware-tools-userd program does not run on startup even though I installed VMWare Tools. how come? I found a guide on how to add unix programs to start on boot but that was a pretty roundabout way and you had to create several folders and a plist. isn't there just a simple shell script you can add a command to?
  15. After 7.0.1 install of Workstation I managed to boot (just mounted the darwin.iso) but the OS crashes at the loading screen. kernel panic. anyways, reran the setup.cmd from the pack and now it's working. It indeed needs the signatures to work.
