  1. The restore discs that come with specific Macs are locked to that particular model, you need a retail disc or image from the App Store.
  2. I updated to 5.1.0 799733 via the CLI, reapplied the patch and my existing Lion VM booted right up with no issue.
  3. I think the hardware-specific restore discs will boot and give you a message as such and what you're seeing is it not finding a device to boot from. The guide you posted said something about using the physical DVD drive, is that what you're using? You could try a .dmg too and see if that works better, but it seems like something is not set up right to get it to see the disc. But that's your first problem, I think the fact that it's a restore disc will be your next problem. Your best bet is probably to use the 10.6 DVD to get rosetta rolling in Snow Leopard, with the non-server hack in that guide. However, virtualizing emulation without GPU acceleration might result in a pretty lousy experience for you when you do get it working...
  4. Has anyone noticed Mountain Lion's screensharing gets messed up when connecting by VNC? I am seeing artifacts left over from drawing and parts of windows not updating, it takes little more than opening and closing a window in the Finder for me to see it. This seems to be happening with ML in Fusion and ESXi, but the same sort of activity with ML on real hardware is fine.
  5. If you have Fusion, but not Workstation, like me, you can extract the EFI in the Terminal by executing: cd "/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library" segedit vmware-vmx -extract __VMWARE efi64 efi64.rom
