  1. What's the key to getting this working in VMware with AMD CPU? I have a home lab ESXi 5.5 host that I want to run a Mavericks Server on. I followed a guide with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] to make a bootable USB drive, replaced the mach_kernel with the RC7 version from this thread but it does not boot. Just hangs on Apple logo, no apparent CPU usage at all. AMD FX-8320 CPU. Thanks!
  2. So many different versions of the modified kernel posted--which is the best to test with at this time?
  3. How do I run OS X under native ESXi (not running as a guest in Workstation)? How do I run the unlocker on the ESXi host itself?
  4. I have a working install of Lion in VMWare 8 but it runs slow as all hell. I have virtualization enabled in BIOS. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    BEST way to virtualize Lion or Snow Leopard?

    Cool, thanks! I already have Lion installed in VMWare but it runs slow as hell. Maybe I need to tweak some settings. Do you have QE/CI in VMWare by any chance?
  6. I already own a MacBook Pro but I want to use my work Dell Latitude E6300 laptop to test out some Mac client software that my company deploys. I know I can install it on its own partition and dual boot but I don't really have the time to troubleshoot all the issues so I'm thinking about virtualizing it. My question: what is the BEST way to virtualize it? I have tried with both VMWare and with Virtualbox but they are pretty laggy. My CPU does support VT-x. I'd like to get as close to the real experience as possible while still using a VM. So, what are people's opinions on the best way to do it? I've been a part of the OS x86 scene since the beginning, back when it was 100x harder than it is now, but I've owned a MacBook for the last couple of years so I haven't really been keeping up with the scene that much lately.
