Help - Mac OS X x86 VMWare image

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I did exactly what is in the "Launching Mac OS X Tiger x86 in VMware Guide" by vertigo173. I boot it up and see the counting - 10, 9, 8 ... seconds to boot. Then I see gray screen with Apple in center, and then the same but with this circle - loading symbol which is rolling... I see the HD icon in the right corner blinking for few seconds, but later it stops doing it. I see the same screen - like the Mac OS X is loading... But is it loading for 5, 10, 15, 20 minutes? What is wrong? Help me!

I got it to boot fine in VMware but you still need to make sure your harware is compatible mainly do you have a SSE2 motherboard or SSE 3 ?

More than likely your hardware has some incompatibility. I have seen that screen quit ea few times now in my desktop, AMD64 3000+ , NF4 Platinum and a whoel bunch of other hardware. My take, use a intel system.

AthlonXP has no SSE2 so OSX86 don' t run in VMware. It runs unaccelerated (no kqemu) in qemu on your PC:
