  1. Which audio and video drivers should i install in lion on Workstation 8 with vmware tools installed from darwin401.iso? have been searching quite a lot for the best and latest compatible drivers for WKS 8!! Does this darwin500.iso from ESXi work on workstation 8?
  2. MSoK, Please include instructions on how to install Mac OS X Lion in front of topic. Also which OS X version should i use in New vm creation wizard, when installing Lion, OS X 10.7 or OS X 10.7 64-bit??
  3. I discovered something from lion 10.7 InstallESD.dmg with md5 'b5d3753c62bfb69866e94dca9336a44a'. when we open the above dmg in 7-zip, it contains another InstallESD.dmg (in folder InstallMacOSX.pkg) that has a different md5, 4c2bda281dd39b562e478dc94895b9be. I experimented both Retail and GM versions of InstallESD.dmg and found they both have inside another dmg file with a different hash, 4c2bda281dd39b562e478dc94895b9be Found another interesting thing, InstallESD.dmg with md5, b5d3753c62bfb69866e94dca9336a44a cannot be converted to ISO showing 'inflation failed' in dmg2img. But the InstallESD.dmg with md5, 4c2bda281dd39b562e478dc94895b9be inside the above b5..InstallESD.dmg can be converted to ISO. Will show again the parent dmg and child dmg, Found no difference between both dmg's except md5 and the child can be converted to ISO. Do anyone know why is there another dmg inside the original b5..dmg released by apple?.
  4. MSoK, yesterday upgraded workstation 7.1.4 to new version 8.0. 3 days ago i did a clean snow leopard installation on 7.1.4 without installing additional vmware tools, audio and video drivers. Yesterday when i upgraded workstation to 8.0, i applied Zenith's Unlocker and upgraded snow leopard vm to 8.0 compatibility. Then installed vmware tools from darwin401.iso successfully getting resolutions upto 2400. But i am not getting any sound and desktop needs to be scrolled to bottom to view the dock of snow leopard. why am not getting any sound and the above desktop instability after installing vmware tools? will i have to install audio and video drives separately other than vmware tools?. why vmware tools wont provide sound and video stability??> If thats the case where do i get latest audio and video drivers for Workstation 8.0? These are the settings i use for Snow, RAM: 1gb Processors: 1 Hard Disk(SCSI): 15GB [Virtual device node - SCSI 0:0 Hard disk (SCSI)] CD/DVD (IDE): Using drive G: [Virtual device node - IDE 1:0 CD/DVD (IDE)] Also what is this Guest Package and guestd patches?. Do i want them?.
  5. yep, thats correct. But there is a simple method if you already have a SL VM and WKS7 http://www.sysprobs.com/working-method-ins...dows-7-intel-pc Should work with WKS8.
  6. use dmgtoiso converter. It works fast and fine. Download: http://vu1tur.eu.org/tools/download.pl?dmg...1.6.2-win32.zip Conversion: Installation not required, just run the below command after extraction. ( Make sure to configure path in Windows OS) Open cmd, go to extracted folder in dos, type the following command dmg2img <Source file.dmg> <destination file.iso> At the end, you will get a successfully converted ISO from DMG in Windows. This ISO can be easily mounted using any mounting software or attached to VMware or VirtualBox as CD ROM drive
  7. Mac OS X guest unlocker for VMware

    You can see in above folder, there is already the windows.cmd updated script supplied by you. If i change windows.bat to cmd then there will be two windows.cmd files!! And readme.txt tells to execute windows.bat
  8. MSoK, you didnt tell can i install Lion as a new virtual machine using the lion dmg without requiring already installed Snow Leopard?. I heard Lion needs snow leopard to install!!. Correct me if am wrong!!. Also there is Donks W8 Unlocker. Which is best and final?, Donks or Zenith's?. And, why using USB and boot options, if we can simply install Lion pointing vmware cd/dvd drive to iso file of InstallESD.dmg. Cant lion be installed directly using iso??..
  9. MSoK, Please update your post VMware Fusion 4.0.2 build-491587 is the latest version released on September 27, 2011 So can you post the latest darwin402.iso version for installing VMware Tools for Snow Leopard or Lion in VMware Workstation 7.1.4 or 7.1.5 or 8.0 versions. Can we use this latest darwin402.iso version in Snow leopard or in older VMware Workstation 7.1.4?.
  10. Mac OS X guest unlocker for VMware

    I have a problem installing Albert's Unlocker for VMware Workstation with Donk's updated 'windows.cmd' script [(windows.txt) 1.36K], from this Donks post --> http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...750&st=140# I am using Workstation 7.1.4 (seeing build-16648 in Programs and Features in Control Panel, but in workstation build number is seen as build-385536). Host is Windows 7 32bit. In Workstation i have Windows XP virtual machine and have VT in quad core. I downloaded the Donks updated text script and changed its extension to cmd and pasted in same directory of macosx_guest_vmware-7 as shown below. I terminated all vmware processes and vmware services confirming no vmware processes, services restarting. Opened command prompt with administrator privileges and executed windows.bat. But i am receiving different result as 'net' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file' on start than common results like 'VMware Authorization service is stopping' or 'restarting' at end of process etc as shown below. I doubt the workstation is successfully patched?>. Rather than simply opening windows.bat as administrator, i opened command prompt, moved to folder and executed as shown above. Please help ..
  11. I am new to Insanely Mac, new to Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Mac OS X Lion. I want to install Lion on my vmware workstation. I heard somewhere that for Lion to get installed, an already installed and upgraded snow leopard system is needed. Is that rule apply for installing on vmware?. I want to try a clean installation without using pre installed vmware images available in net. i have vmware workstation 7.1.4, a Snow Leopard 10.6 retail dmg and a lion retail 10.7 dmg. Can you advice me which version of workstation is better compatible to install SL and Lion, vmware workstation 7.1.4 or new vmware workstation 8.0?. Also please tell me the best and latest guide, their respective unlockers and patches for clean installing SL and then Lion on 7.1.4 and 8.0? Thanks in advance...
