Trying to check out Mac OS on VM

Trying to check out Mac OS on VM

Postby yeshuas » Wed May 06, 2009 9:52 pm

I found this Mac OS Leopard that is suppose to be a pre-configured VM that you use in VMWare Workstation, but I can't seem to get it to work. Can someone instruct me as to which file I am to use to get this thing going, so I can check out Mac.

My guess would be the one that i highlighted. If that doesn't work, try using the import wizard to import the VM into your setup.

My Leopard CD doesn't have that anywhere when I pop it into my XP machine. Do you have to have VMware installed or am I just not using the retail version of Leopard? (I have the one that came with my Mac).

This was a pre-configured VM thing that I found on the web, just wanted to see what Mac Leopard was all about or at least see it. For this one it stated that it required VMWare Workstation

That's what my screen looks like when I boot up.

I let that screen set for an hour and it just stayed that way, and never did anything.

Hmm... I would recommend just going to an Apple store for an hour and playing around with their computers. I'm not even sure this VMware thing is entirely on the up-and-up because I don't think Apple wants people running OS X virtually (unless maybe it is on a machine running OS X).

I think that it may get hung there if it's missing the TPM chip or workaround that came out like a year ago. Apple's EULA says that it can't run on anything but Apple hardware I think (if you get really technical about it). Just one of the reasons that I don't like things that the company makes, even if it does tend to be more stable (sometimes)
