image VMware VMDK to physical drive

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi there!


Just got JaS 10.4.7 installed and running through VMware and am very excited about it!


I've tried to do the same using a physical drive rather than a virtual drive with no luck.


I was wondering if there was a way to image the VMware created VMDK file onto a waiting FAT32 partition. Essentially I want to clone the contents of the VMware image onto awaiting partion and use a bootloader (Darwin?) to allow the MBR to boot Mac OSX natively.


Many thanks!

Thanks for the reply.


Although this a great guide for doing a native install with vmware it does not cover actually imaging a vmware vmdk file onto a partition but rather installing directly through vmware.


I've attempted doing this but I cannot install Mac OSX on a physical drive with VMware only on a virtual drive. As a result, I only have a HDD ISO.
