Need help with ML inside Vmware

Recommended Posts

Well! i just got a new laptop with an ivy bridge processor :D! but sadly, i am limited to install ML via VMware because nothing else is compatible... but when i try to install vmware tools in ML in vmware it fails to install at the end...

I need vmware tools in order to mount my usb and properly format and get it ready for dual booting on my Windows PC. Do you know where i can find a different (newer version) of vmware tools that is compatible with mac os x ML so that i can install it...


Just as a side question, is there anyway that you guys know of the send multi-touch gestures through vmware? so i can test out the new multi-touch features in ML on VMware.


I have a few more questions, because i am dual booting, is it possible that when formatting the blank partition i made that it will format the whole hardrive?? because my laptop did not come with an windows installation CD :S


i know Mountain Lion Developer preview was available for download for macs without an IVY bridge cpu... does the Developer Preview 4 support ivy bridge processors? or is it only the retail version that supports them? because for now, i only have access to DP4 and i was planing on downloading and installing the retail version over the DP4 version...


Which brings me to my last question! if everything goes well,once i install DP4 on the partition on my hardrive and successfully dual boot, will i be able to download the Retail version of Mac os X Mountain lion via the apple app store and upgrade the DP4 to the release version without having to format any partitions and recreate the bootable usb? basically just run it inside the DP4 and install it there... And if i install it that way will it mess up the chameleon bootloader or will it leave it the bootloader as well as my windows partition completely unharmed?


Thanks! those are all of the questions i have for now!! hope im not to much of a bother :)


my laptop specs

Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 650M 1gb

Processor: Intel core i7 3610QM 2.3Ghz (with turboboost)


it is basically the same specs as a 2000 dollar Macbook pro, except the only differences from the macbook pro are the sound card and the wlan card :) and of course the BIOS

    • Cool! Do you have a link? Googled and didn't see anything yet.   Never mind... you're quick! I just noticed you updated it on the 1st page THANKS!!!!!!
    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "
                      <string>USB 10.13.4+ by PMHeart</string>
              </array>     "

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
