Install Mac OS X 10.6.6 Using vMware Player on Non VT-x CPUs

How To Install Mac OS X 10.6.6 On Non VT-x Supporting PCs

 

Ok I have finally done it! ;) Thanks to Fask.

 

Note: Instead of using busratio as 17, Go get your Busratio here.

 

Here's How to Do It:

 

1. Buy a Mac OS X Retail DVD or Download the ISO.

2. Download Any Bootloader.Here are the ones that worked for me:

  • Chameleon
  • Empire EFI
  • [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]

 

3. Download vMware Player.

4. Make A Virtual Machine With The Following Options:

  • Memory: 1024
  • Processors: 1
  • Hard Disk: 20 GB
  • CD / DVD: Use The ISO Image Of Chameleon and when asked enter the ISO of the retail DVD.
  • OS: Free BSD
  • Network Adapter: NAT

 

5. Start The Virtual Machine using the chameleon ISO.

6. Chameleon will load. Enter the ISO of the Retail DVD when prompted

7. Don't boot the DVD! Instead Press F8 and then Type:

 

-f busratio=17 cpus=1

 

8. Press [Enter]

9. The DVD will load. It will bring up a command prompt after a while, Sit through it.

10. The Setup Screen will appear.

11. Finish the setup and you are done!

 

Note: Tried this with Hazard ISO and also a Mac OS X Retail DVD and both worked!

 

Works a bit slow for me but good! During the Bootloader Screen type the code mentioned above (Else It'll give a Kernel Panic) :D :

 

-f busratio=17 cpus=1

 

Or, Just Don't power Off the PC, Simply Exit! It will automatically restore to the current screen when It will start!

 

Comment if it works! :D

So how did you perform the updates? Does this work on AMD CPUs?

 

I tried this on an Intel CPU (specifically a Core 2 Duo). This May work on AMD CPUs. Trying to get the network Drivers and then I Will do the updates.

Thansk for the guide = Seems pretty easy

 

Got this error: "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point."

 

Any remedies for this?

Thanks for the guide but I have encountered the same problem as osasko.

 

I installed Snow Leopard on the virtual hd using the Hazard iso but after the installation and reboot it said "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point." I have an AMD with no VT if anyone can help thanks.
