Running Vmware with two hard drives?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have two hard drives in my vista computer and have installed OSX86 on one of them. I want to rum vmware on the Mac side controlling the Windows i have installed on my other hard drive. Is there any way to do this?

If you need any specs tell me what you need and i will post them. I really need this because i am going to be going away to college and want to control my home computer (mac and vista) through screen sharing or VNC.


(also if any of you know a microsoft office 2008 torrent/download that works in SP1 please tell me)

I'm assuming you want to load xp with vmware inside os x.

You need to close vmware.

load terminal

type sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdiskX - where x is the disk number of which xp is on

type print -- look for an * next to your HFS partition find what number your xp partition is

type flag X -- XP partition

type write

say y

leave terminal open, goto vmware create new connection your connection should now show up. play around exit. go back to terminal


type flag X -- you osx partion

type write

say yes
