Hy all!


My host os is windows vista x64 ultimate, and i want to run osx 10.4.8 in my virtual machine vmware workstation 6) but when i want to boot from cd vmware give me these message:


"* Virtual machine kernel stack fault (hardware reset) ***

The virtual machine just suffered a stack fault in kernel mode. On a real computer, this would amount to a reset of the processor. It can be caused by an incorrect configuration of the virtual machine, a bug in the operating system, or a problem in the VMware Workstation software. Press OK to reboot virtual machine or Cancel to shut it down."


Here is my Config File from Vmware:


paevm = "TRUE"

config.version = "8"

virtualHW.version = "6"

memsize = "1024"

ide0:0.present = "TRUE"

ide0:0.fileName = "Other.vmdk"

ide1:0.present = "TRUE"

ide1:0.fileName = "G:"

ide1:0.deviceType = "cdrom-raw"

floppy0.autodetect = "TRUE"

ethernet0.present = "TRUE"

ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"

sound.present = "TRUE"

sound.fileName = "-1"

sound.autodetect = "TRUE"

svga.autodetect = "TRUE"

pciBridge0.present = "TRUE"

mks.keyboardFilter = "allow"

displayName = "OSX"

guestOS = "winxppro-64"

nvram = "Other.nvram"

deploymentPlatform = "windows"

virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted"

tools.upgrade.policy = "useGlobal"


numvcpus = "1"

ide1:0.autodetect = "FALSE"

floppy0.fileName = "A:"

vmi.present = "FALSE"


isolation.tools.hgfs.disable = "TRUE"


ethernet0.addressType = "generated"

uuid.location = "56 4d 54 fd d2 bf fa b4-28 fd d9 dd 96 e6 3f fa"

uuid.bios = "56 4d 54 fd d2 bf fa b4-28 fd d9 dd 96 e6 3f fa"

ide0:0.redo = ""

pciBridge0.pciSlotNumber = "17"

scsi0.pciSlotNumber = "16"

ethernet0.pciSlotNumber = "32"

sound.pciSlotNumber = "33"

vmi.pciSlotNumber = "-1"

ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:e6:3f:fa"

ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"


floppy0.present = "FALSE"


monitor = "release"

Create a new virtaul machine, choose custom, then on "Which OS will be installed" choose Linux Ubuntu. In the next section you can name your OS "Mac OS X 10.4.8" or sililar. Don't know how about processors, but I have chosen only one. Then select the amount of RAM, give it >=512, but <=1024 I think, as Vista needs some RAM too :blink: Select network connection (I choose NAT, but my network doesn't work, though I have installed drivers. Trying to install Mac on a real PC, so don't have much time to work with virtual.). Leave SCSI adaperter LSI Logic and create a new desired size disk, then select IDE connection for it. Start your virtual machine and install Mac OS X and enjoy :) Here is my experience installing Mac OS X on VmWare Workstation 6 Ace Edition on Vista Ultimate x64 host OS:
