/var/run/installer: Read-only file system

I've tried installing Mac OS X 10.4.8 on a Virtual Machine (VMWare Workstation) for a while.

However, I keep getting this error when booting to the DVD:

/var/run/installer: Read-only file system


After getting a few illegal instruction errors that error is printed on the screen in a while(true) fashion.


PC Spec:

Windows XP (Sp2)

Intel Core 2 Dou @1.86 GHz

1 GB Ram



Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2].iso


I've been able to run Mac OS X on a virtual machine before, however it was a preinstalled VMWare image.


How can I fix the problem?


Thanks in advance,
