Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 Stuck at installation

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

Today I tried to install Mac OS X Lion on VMware 7.1.3, and instead of installing I get the following screen:

I've been waiting for more than 20 minutes and it hasn't changed.

If anybody can help me, then please do so.

Thanks in advance.

 

Extra Info:

I have an Intel i7 Ivy Bridge, and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My motherboard has Hardware Virtualization enabled.

Your PC specs don't really matter if you're running a VM.

 

What settings does the VM have?

 

You may need a legacy kernel or a kernel from the new macbook pro to run an Ivy Bridge, I'm not sure how it works with a VM.

Why not install on a spare HDD/partition rather than using a VM?

The settings are: 1 GB of memory, 4 processors and 40 GB Preallocated.

I use an ISO file to run this VM.

What are kernels and how do they work?

Besides, I thought you can't install Mac OS on windows directly.

You can't install OS X on Windows but you can install it natively on PC hardware with the help of a bootloader such as Chameleon and FakeSMC.kext.

I'm sorry, but can you please explain a bit about the boot loaders? I found them but apparently they only work with hackintosh... so how am I supposed to do this?

Thanks in advance! :)

well what do you think a hackintosh is?

Mac installed on windows.... but how am I supposed to install it if it doesn't work? Is it some kind of a program that modifies Mac and allows it to install it on Windows?

I searched this topic up but came up with nothing. Any help is really appreciated.

The idea of a hackintosh is to install OS X on a PC, INSTEAD OF or along side windows. Not ON windows.There are many guides to do this.A good place to start is by googling 'os x < insert motherboard here >'
