  1. Thanks MSoK! Blew away the VMware Desktop installation and reinstalled as well as Albert's unlocker. All working fine now. Cheers, Freckleface
  2. Thanks MSOK, have recreated the vmk and amended the lines you specified. Now I can get to the shell prompt but cant change the removable device to the OSX retail cd in vmware. The option is greyed out. Also, I have set the removable CD/DVD to be SCSI and not IDE after receiving an EFI error. How do I enable the CD given its greyed out?
  3. Hi All, Ive followed the instructions and am still getting Invalid Front-Side bus frequency 66000000 Hz disabling the CPU error.

You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point. Not sure where to go from here.
