success installing natively using vmware image

Recommended Posts

HI i achieved my goal installing os x86 natively using the vmware image.

it works perfect, really fast, and all hardware detected perfectly.

i would post some screenshots but i dont know how since this is the first time i am using os x

I just wanted to thank VooD for creating the awesome noob proof guide for windows users. anyway i had some questions:

 

1. when i copied the .img over using dd it only created a 6gb partition. i have about 70 gb free that disk utility wont let me partition. is there any software that i can use to partition it in windows or a boot cd that i can download and partition, or am i doing some thing wrong in disk utilty?

 

2.is their any way to get itunes working if you have a sse2 cpu?

if not than is their any other way that i can play mp3 files

 

3. is their any way that i can install ppc apps if my cpu is sse2

if not are they any websites that you can download software that can work with an sse2 cpu in os x86?

guide for windows users to install os x86 native from vmware image

 

1.- get deadmoo vmware image

2.- untargz it (for example via winrar)

3.- download dd for windows from http://uranus.it.swin.edu.au/~jn/li...rite/dd-0.3.zip unzip the file

4.- move dd files to your \Windows\system32\ folder (I suggest not to overwrite any file)

5.- Go to start menu, select run and type Diskmgmt.msc. Now you´ll see the different disk on your system and their identification number. So write down the number of the disk you want to install Os X

6.- run a command prompt (Start->run-> and then type CMD and push enter)

7.- change the path of the command prompt to the directory where the file tiger-x86-flat.img uncompressed from deadmoo´s file is

8.- now type:

 

dd if=tiger-x86-flat.img of=\\.\PhysicalDriveX

Where X must be the number you noted before.

9.- Wait til is finished

10.- Reboot, and make your bios to boot from the hd where you installed os x

 

(you must slave an extra hard drive to install, unless you dont care about loseing windows and all your data :unsure:

So thats all I have to do? This seems like an very easy way.

1. Same thing here. I used a linux boot cd and fdisk in the console to create a new partition and changed its type to Apple Darwin. Then booted back into OS X and tried a couple of console commands b4 I discovered the "Disk Utility" (dude forgive cause I know zilch about Mac). I saw my new slice so I ran erase and repair and now its mounted up.

 

 

2. Dont know as my soundcard on my old VPR matrix notebook (ALi5451 ) doesnt work and iTunes wont start.
