all that in vmware...

 

if i tried installing from native cd, is there a chance that it will work ?

MacOS X should now boot. However, it may fail with a kernel panic 'commpage no match on last routine'. If this happens, it's because your CPU doesn't support SSE3 and for some odd reason, the HOTiSO image above doesn't install a suitably patched kernel. If this happens, boot off the MacOS X install DVD. When you reach the installer, choose Utilities=>Terminal. Now type 'cp /mach_kernel /Volumes/Apple\ MacOS\ X/' which copies an AMD and SSE2 patched kernel (the one the installer booted from) over the one on your main system. Reboot.

Firstly, you need to format your install partition as HFS. Run Utilities=>Disc Utility. Choose the partition with the Journalled MacOS type. Choose the Erase tab. Type in the name 'Apple MacOS X' into the disc label, and hit Erase. If you get an error about not being able to read your partition map, you have an error somewhere in your partition tables. Boot into Linux via the install DVD and use fdisk to fix them. Remember, your partition must be a primary one.

 

 

Volume name must be "'Apple MacOS X"! attention!!!
