  1. Gotcha, right after a fresh install and unlock of my VM Ware it was resetting the mouse to the middle of the screen when I tried to move outside of the VM. Only in that one program is def. strange.
  2. For those of you having mouse problems on VM Ware 8.0.1 with Lion try the following configuration in VM Ware Input options: Edit -> Preferences -> Input Uncheck "Grab keyboard and mouse input on key press" profitt?? Hope that works!
  3. mfred/GnatGoSplat (et al) When rebooting and it hangs again, well obviously we want to reboot and this is not satisfactory - so the solution is definitely not "don't reboot!" but simply the chmod command - please ensure you have ran chmod -R 444 AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext as this will make the file read-only and the Apple OS should not be able to edit it (that is the only reason for this command in fact). Once you have done this you should be able to reboot successfully. To double check that your directory has had the command performed successfully open Terminal and: 1) cd /System/Library/Extensions/ 2) ls -l You should be able to see here that most of the directories have the permissions of "drwxr-xr-x" but what we want AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext to show up as it: "dr--r--r--", meaning that even as admin/root we only have access to read the data and not rewrite it as a 0byte file. Let me know if you are still having problems so we can get everyone back up and running.
  4. Just to add on to what was said earlier, here is another alternate write up on performing the repairs if you HAVE updated to 10.7.2 and are stuck at the moment, the key is having the original installer file/hard disk you first used to actually install the OS. If you are like me, when you updated your VMWare installation of Lion to 10.7.2 it started all sorts of problems, including no longer booting at all. If this is the case where you receive a grey screen on boot with an abort logo, and you may notice there is no activity on the HDD LEDs at the bottom of VMWare you simply have to replace some files that are preventing the boot of Lion. Follow these steps and hopefully you will be back up and running: 1) Change the boot order of your hard drives in VMWare, you should still have the original installation file(vmdk) listed as a Hard Disk device; if not, Add it again to the Virtual Machine. Edit Virtual Machine Settings Select your 5GB drive of the Mac OS X Lion.vmdk Advanced button Change to device SCSI 0:0 so it will boot to the installer again You may be prompted to "switch" the drives, that is fine. 2) Turn the machine back on and you should load into the Mac OSX Installer for Lion 3) From the Utilities section choose Terminal and perform the following: cd /Volumes ls -now you should see a couple listings, one for the installer which you can ignore, and the one we want being your Mac HD name- cd [Name of your Mac HD]/System/Library/Extensions/ rm -r AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext cp /System/Library/Extensions/AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext/ . chmod -R 444 AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext 4) Shutdown the installer, edit virtual machine hard drives back to the normal settings with your larger partition being the main boot drive SCSI 0:0 5) Reboot Thanks to Zenith432 and cruptorix for their intel!
