AMD Phenom II X6 1100T + VMWARE 8.0.2 + Mac Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Hello All,


I got SL 10.6.8 running on a PC with AMD Phenom II X6 1100T and VMware 8.0.2. SL image is boot using a DVD Room drawin_legacy.iso. The Kernel of the Mac is the latest legacy kernel i got it from http://www.osx86.net/view/3384-legacy_kernel_10.8_v2.html and i also chose the force64 option.


It's running nicely with 1 Core (or 1 CPU) assigned to the Mac Guest OS. I can even connect my iphone to it via the VMware USB relay. However it is not idea as it is slow with only 1 Core.


When I assign 2 Core (or even 4 Core) to the Guest OS, I can boot it and run it with no problem. However, I will get the horrible CPU(s) have been disabled by Guest message after a few hours of running. I always leave the PC and the Guest running all the time. There is no pattern on when I will get the CPU disabled message. I therefore disabled all the screensaver or energy related features within the Guest OS but i have no luck.


I wonder anyone can shed some light into this and tell me how kind of log files I need to look at?


I tried the /var/log/system.log but nothing happened the crashing.


many thanks !


mmm, i have tried all the amd compatiable (legacy) kernel from http://www.osx86.net but still the same problem. Multiple Cores is not stable

anyone? need some tips on how to 'debug' ...


Lion on AMD CPU Phenom II X6 1100T is {censored}. that is lost time do you invest. I have tested relatively first, it is no good. It remains to Phenom II X6 only an experiment.

Throw away them {censored} CPU and buy a CPU FX8350, then you can install Lion 10.7.5 with 64-bit. And if they are modified Mountain Lion kernel for AMD, then you can install ML with 64-bit.
