small problem with VMWare and MacOSX

Recommended Posts

Hi;

 

I just want to run OSX in VMWare. I am using a AMD64, 2GB of RAM, ASUS A8V,VMWare Workstaton v5.

I'm using the MYZ 10.4.4-5 ISO. This ISO I mount under VMW like a CDROM. Hard Disk is a virtual drive under VMW - 10GB. I see it like a SCSI hdd;

After start my MacoOSX profile and press F8 & type -v Ihave (after 30 s.):

When you get to the point where no drive is available to install OSX onto go back a step. Invoke Disk Utility at the very top of the virtual window. Now create a partition (Mac Journaled) on the virtual drive of at least 10GB. Now you have to make sure you created an FDISK/GUID partition and not an Apple Powermac partition. ( http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303220 ). If you create the wrong partition type OSX86 will install but it will not boot even though info says it is bootable (It will boot, just not on an x86 machine). My 10.4.3 install tells me if the partition is wrong. The later installs are silent on this.

 

10.4.3 won't let me install OSX86 on the wrong partition type. The later osx versions let me install anyway, but they won't boot.
