installing jas 10.4.6 on vmware and ubuntu

Recommended Posts


I just tried to install macosx jas 10.4.6 on vmware and ubuntu.My laptop is a Sony Vaio sz 1 m/b with centrino dual core 1,66 ghz.I created a virtual machine and added the line paevm="TRUE" on .vmx file.When I press enter on boot installation a gray screen with apple logo appears and I receive this error message:


*** Virtual machine kernel stack fault (hardware reset) ***

The virtual machine just suffered a stack fault in kernel mode. On a real computer, this would amount to a reset of the processor. It can be caused by an incorrect configuration of the virtual machine, a bug in the operating system, or a problem in the VMware Workstation software. Press OK to reboot virtual machine or Cancel to shut it down


What can I do to solve the problem?(if it's possible...)

I forgot to insert white spaces in paevm="TRUE" so it doesn't give me that error anymore;however I received this message :

*** VMware Workstation internal monitor error ***

vcpu-0:ASSERT vmcore/vmm/cpu/segment.h:444 bugNr=19580

Sounds like it doesn't like your dual core processor. Need to turn off one core.


There are two things to try:


1) Before pressing "Enter" on the install DVD startup screen, enter this at the prompt:




2) I've never used VMware, but I read about a setting that it has for number of processors. Try setting this to "one"


2. Start VMWare, click on 'New Virtual Machine'.


3. Choose 'Other' and then in the next screen choose 'New - Workstation 5'. Then in the next screen Click on the 'Other' radio button and choose 'Other' from the dropdown box. In the next screen give the virtual machine a name (I called mine 'OS X') then click next. Choose 'One' as number of processors, in the next screen type '512' into the box and click next
