VMware Mac OS X Guest Package for ESX, Workstation, Player, Server and Fusion

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just sharing what I have achieved after reading this post.

 

I got SL (patched to 10.6.2) working on the following specs:

1) VMware workstation 7.0.0 build-203739;

2) Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Host OS;

3) Intel Q6600 2.40Ghz;

4) Retail DVD snow leopard converted to iso image (vmware to mount the iso for installation);

5) vmx settings below.

 

Subsequently patched to 10.6.1 -> 10.6.2 had no problems.

 

The only problem now I have is the choppy audio that I get. Any suggestions?

Have you applied Zenith432's VMsvga2 project EnsonicAudioPCI 1.0.2 drivers for SL, these resolve alot of the choppy audio issues.

Hihi ...

 

I installed the new EnsonicAudioPCI drivers..they worked great!!

Thanks.

 

Anyway I read that some didnt get osx to install using the vmware to load the iso image, only with retail DVD. But I did it with the iso image ! ... hopefully those who fail still got more hope to keep trying...

Guys, unless I am mistaken you do not boot the darwin.iso, my reading of the manual and practical experience says create the VM as a FreeBSD or FreeBSD 64-Bit, amend the .vmx as per the manual. Power up the VM pointed at either an original retail OSX DVD or from an ISO created from the .dmg (I could only get the retail DVD to work), follow the installation instructions. Then once you are up and running use the darwin.iso to install the VM tools etc. Zenith432 has got some enhancements for video and audio.

 

Hope this is of help.

Ok, bit of an update and of course a question!

 

I have got SL running well, VMware Workstation 7 under Windows 7 Enterprise 64-Bit on both a Workstation with an Intel Xeon W3520 Quad Core Processor and a laptop Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 both have VT-X enabled and all is well, I have installed SL from retail DVD updated to 10.6.1, will go to .2 later tonight (have just downloaded it!).

 

But I cannot get leopard client or server to install, I have the retail DVD's for both but keep running in to keyboard issues, i.e. install proceeds fine until I get to either input user info or the server license key, (which I have), and go in to random characters, I have tried changing the .vmx as per the manual, but does not seem to make any difference.

 

This is not critical as I have two copies of SL running fine, Office 2008, Firefox, etc. all connecting over a bridged network rather than NAT, just so I can play with the latest entourage update and linking in to Exchange 2007.

 

Just trying to understand the practical side of this stuff rather than the ultra technical side et al Donk and Zenith432!

 

Trying to join the dots! well laid out dots I may add, thanks legends!

Donk,

 

Thanks for the clarification, I was aware of the Workstation situation, should have been more technically correct, but not being in an NDA agreement with Apple or VMware, unlike some, did not bother, will do better, LoL!

 

Cheers,

 

Mac SofK.

Glad the audio drivers from Zenith432 solved your problem, all hail one of the legends. I am still not getting a .iso to work but will try harder.

Hi guys - i cant seem to install SL to my VMWare :(

 

Host OS: Windows 7 32-bit

Install Media: Retail SL ISO Image File [iSO file is working; i tested under 10.5.6 by mounting it]

CPU: Pentium E5300 with VT - VT Enabled from BIOS

 

First I downloaded vmware-darwin-200.zip file and run the installer with admin privileges. And then i downloaded the vmware-darwin-snowy.zip file and copied the darwin.iso file inside to the VMware installation folder.

 

I got Operating System not found error upon i restart VM.

 

My mouse and kb connected via PS/2 btw and i manually configured VMX file accordingly:

OK, couple of things, been here myself so know how frustrating this can be, you are running VMware Workstation 7, as it is the only version to unoffically support SL under Windows.

 

Do you have the original DVD, if so try it, I have had lots of issues with .iso's even ones I have created from original retails DVD's.

 

Your .vmx looks pretty well as my running version does.

 

You do not mention your hardware, i.e. Quad Core etc. although I have a core 2 duo and a Quad Core running fine on SL installing from the retail DVD's but some issues with .iso's.

 

Not sure this helps but if nothing else, the rest of us have been there!

Thx for the reply, my cpu is Pentium E5300 with VT; it's a dual core cpu:

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLGTL

 

I built the iso myself and it happily mounts to another vm with 10.5.6...

 

Need to find a DL media i guess ? But many people reported successful iso installation... :(

 

EDIT: i rechecked the manual pdf file and i believe my problem is that i dont get the darwin screen on page 9. i think it should be there even i dont attach the iso file right ?

That's the way I thought it would work, but when I don't use the ISO I get "Operating System not found" errors. When I use the ISO, it boots and hands off to the virtual HDD just fine. I will dig through again, but I was under the impression I had all the settings dialed in.

If the order went exactly like you say, then that might very well be the key.

 

What I did for a working install was

 

1. Unzip Darwin-200

 

2. Unzip Darwin-Snowy _over_ darwin-200

 

3. _Then_ run seutp.cmd install

 

4. Then finish config VMX and install OS

 

The key is that the Snowy DARWIN.ISO needs to be in place before the install is run so that a valid .SIG file is created for it. otherwise Workstation will not use the Darwin.ISO file to boot you into the OS.

 

 

 

Hope that helps.

Hi guys,

 

Hope someone can help - I'm getting the CPU has been disabled error. Using an Intel Q9300 (which is VT-x enabled). It is also enabled in the BIOS.

 

Using Workstation 7 on XP Pro SP3.

 

The error I get is attached below along with my VMX file & log file.

 

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Donk,

Amazing work!

 

Everything installed just fine (SL vmware WS7) the only thing is the mouse is highly erratic for me after installing the tools and rebooting.

Im on a laptop, and have even set the vusb settings in the VMX to FALSE but still no luck. What happens is the mouse seems to be off by quite a bit. For example, if you want to click on something, youd have to hover the mouse about 4 inches diagonally above it to even come close to highlight say an desktop icon.

If i drop the mouse low enough to get to the dock, it just flat out dissappears. I have to do a ctrl+alt to get VMware to unfocus and the i click back in the VM to see my mouse again. This happens whether its in full screen or not.

I also tried manually setting my laptops native display resolution in the Boot.plist thinking it was that but still no luck.

 

So close!

 

Thanks for the help and great work all.

 

 

Wow ok so I figured it out literally right after I posted.

I failed to mention that Im using Win7 on the laptop. In order to make the fonts bigger I adjusted them to larger instead of the default. This appeared to create a form of scaling that affected VMware in some way.

After changing it back, everything works great.

 

Thanks again.

Thank you for the clear answer, as I had the exact same issue. I had copied over the darwin-snowy.iso file AFTER I installed as well, and had the same issue. Now that I copied it into the directory, renamed the existing darwin.iso and renamed snowy to darwin.iso, I re-ran the install script and now it boots just fine without the need for the snowy-darwin.iso (which was already renamed to darwin.iso at that point anyway) to be mounted for each boot cycle. Thanks again.

Great to read some of the solutions. I got mine to work using snowy.iso. Audio and SVGAII was a great find.

 

I want to create a new one to see if I can improve on the graphics speed. What does your profiler say? Mine says 30Ghz for the speed of the processor, etc. Obviously my Video RAM 1GIG FX3700M card doesn't show up. Am I getting at least 50% potential from it?

 

I have updated to 10.6.2 successfully. But since 10.6 and all the updates since the install of OSX SL, I cannot get preview to work. I open up JPGs and there is just a blank screen. I have tried many and it doesn't work. Anyone have this problem?

 

Thanks again for all the great posts. It has really helped a TON!!

Im on a laptop, and have even set the vusb settings in the VMX to FALSE but still no luck. What happens is the mouse seems to be off by quite a bit. For example, if you want to click on something, youd have to hover the mouse about 4 inches diagonally above it to even come close to highlight say an desktop icon.

If i drop the mouse low enough to get to the dock, it just flat out dissappears. I have to do a ctrl+alt to get VMware to unfocus and the i click back in the VM to see my mouse again. This happens whether its in full screen or not.

Sounds like you're using a normal PS/2 mouse driver. I suggest you install VMMouse.

Yes, everybody has this problem. Preview in OS 10.6 does not display PNG/JPG. Use another application to view them, like Safari.

Thx so much - this solved my problem and installed SL succesfully even updated to 10.6.2...

 

Now the sound is not working and i'll try to solve it.

 

 

"First I downloaded vmware-darwin-200.zip file and run the installer with admin privileges. And then i downloaded the vmware-darwin-snowy.zip file and copied the darwin.iso file inside to the VMware installation folder.

 

I got Operating System not found error upon i restart VM."

 

 

 

If the order went exactly like you say, then that might very well be the key.

 

What I did for a working install was

 

1. Unzip Darwin-200

 

2. Unzip Darwin-Snowy _over_ darwin-200

 

3. _Then_ run seutp.cmd install

 

4. Then finish config VMX and install OS

 

The key is that the Snowy DARWIN.ISO needs to be in place before the install is run so that a valid .SIG file is created for it. otherwise Workstation will not use the Darwin.ISO file to boot you into the OS.

 

 

 

Hope that helps.

All,

I currently have done the snowy leopard method to install, but I wanted to make sure im correct on the video.

Currently it shows 128mb pci for the video adapter, and I have the enable 3d acceleration checked in the VM properties.

My question is does the snowy leopard VMtools that are attached to the first post in this thread provide the latest SVGAII drivers? The video seems to be pretty good, but moving the windows around or scrolling through a web page in safari is a bit sluggish. I just wanted to be sure there isnt something I'm missing to improve that.

 

 

Thanks again.

Try Zenith432's audio drivers EnsoniqAudioPCI_1.0.2_for_SnowLeopard.mpkg.tar.gz from VMsvga2 project they seem to resolve most sound issues.

 

It looks like the link was mangled, so:

 

Audio Drivers

http://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/fi...tar.gz/download

 

Video Drivers

Hello again!

 

I'm having huge problems with installing software with dmg extension. Every time when I mount some app with dmg I get kernel panic informing me that there is something wrong with seatbelt.kext. I googled and found "DMG mounting issues & Seabelt.kext" at this link . I followed instructions on that link, tried every single offered seabelt.kext but I'm still getting a seabelt.kext kernel panic. I tried installing with OSx86 tools too but had same failure. Probably it has something to do with the voodoo kernel that I'm using on Donk's voodoo pack for Intel Core 2 Quad. Please help me, this is driving me nuts! Thanks in advance : )

 

Details about my pc:

 

- VMware Workstation 6.5.3

- Windows Vista Ultimate x64

- Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300

- Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard - i'm using CPU Drop in DVD (installed with backup trick)

I have Vmware 7 build 203739 and a Retail Snow Leopard disc. My vmx config is below. I have patched my vmware with install.cmd after copying snow leaopard darwin.iso to vmware directory. When i boot my snow leopard disc which I put in my Hp HDX 16 running Windows 7 and boot, it starts booting and then I get a double kernel panic message and the screen fades till all it says at the bottom is "unkowgns on stack" I then get a Virtual CPU error. I have a Core 2 Duo P8700 and Virtulization is enabled in my BIOS. I have a prior install of 10.5.8 and that works flawessly, I would just like to start from scratch with Snow Leopard

Hi all,

since I installed VMSvga 1.2.1 graphic drivers, automatic resize doesn't work .. Tried to reinstall VMWare Tools but no change.

I had the same problem when I updated to 10.6.2 but reinstalling the VMTools had solved the problem ..

 

I'm on workstation 7 and SL 10.6.2

 

Anyone had the same problem ? Is there any way to uninstall graphic drivers ?

 

Thanks for your help !

Try the following mods to your .vmx file, and if you have the retail DVD use it rather than an .iso it solved my problems, have yet to get a .iso to work, but still working on it.

 

ich7m.present = "TRUE"

guestOS = "darwin10-64"

monitor.virtual_exec = "hardware"

monitor.virtual_mmu = "software"

 

Also have you updated your darwin.iso to the snowy version, if you have not uninstall the darwin-200 version before adding the darwin.iso to your dawin-200 directory then re-install back in to your VMware Workstation 7, I think the .sig file needs to be recreated, i.e just copying the snowy darwin.iso will not work correctly.

 

good luck!

@Cygnust: See this thread, post 28 and my reply:

 

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...d=1328253

 

Anyone got mouse scrolling working using a touchpad on a laptop? Doesn't work for me, but the mouse otherwise works fine. External USB mouse scrolls fine.

 

Thanks a lot, it did the trick !

 

For the scrolling, it also works for me with the touchpad. I did nothing for it ..
