installing using the VMWare method not working

I have the following image Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2].iso. I've attempted to follow the directions here (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=11314&hl=vmware+native'>http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=11314&hl=vmware+native). I'm using this method as I don't have an USB Dvd Drive and the Jmicron Patch did help me out. (Those are my three options according to http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=32426).


Using VMware Workstation version 5.51 build 19175.

Under WIndows XP SP2.


Hardware is as follows.


Asus P5B Deluxe Wifi

Intel Core 2 Duo e6400

1 Sata WD Raptor 150GB

1 IDE DVD-Writer

2GB ram

Nvidia 7600GT


The only thing I did differently from these (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=11314&hl=vmware+native) instructions is that I burnt the dvd instead of mounting the ISO. I would have mounted the ISO but I applied the JMicron Patch without backing it up first and it gives the following error: "System Config File '/Library/Preferences/SystemCOnfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist' not found.


Without making you struggle through any more babble here are the screencaps...






It would be fantastic if someone could point me in the right direction.


- mnx
