Vmplayer hangs on bootup

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have installed osx86 10.4.7 (JaS's instaler) and things went fine. But on bootup, it never gets to my desktop. It hangs on a blue screen with the mouse on it. I thought the GUI was taking its time, so I left it on overnight. I woke up the next morning(today) and it was the same (thank God it was only vmware). What should I do to fix this?

Packages installed: x11, additional fonts, aditional languages, intel sse3 patch(cpu is sse3 compatable) and something else(I dont remember what it was) I am using vmplayer, I dont know the verision. I used an internet tool to create my virtual computer.
