    Default Trouble installing virtualization software e.g. Parallels & VMware

    I have been trying to get Parallels 3.0 and the VMware Beta to install a copy of XP for playing old games in OSx.

    I am currently using Uphuck's 1.3 DVD with SSE2 kernel om a P4 Northwood.

    I can load up the Parallels app just fine, cycle through the options wizard but when it comes to the point where I have to select an installation source (ISO or cdrom) and click 'Install' the entire machine goes out to lunch. Keyboard and mouse become unresponsive, all the symptoms of a kernel crash.

    I can only presume its something to do with the kext's.

    Does anyone know what might be causing it? Known issue?

    I tried to install from an iso of XP after the CDROM I have crashed the first time.

    Same issue. Just crashes the machine instant you press INSTALL.

    I figured I'd try out VMware and same thing happens.

    I checked out the system logs, but its crashing the machine instantly so nothing is being recorded about it.

    Bummer huh?

    I re-installed using the latest Uphuck 1.4i release and the alternate SMBIOS kext, this got Adobe CSE working but I still can't get Parallels running.

    Same issue ..

    I can't possibly be the only one experiencing this?

    I think parallels needs at least sse3 to run.
    Version 3.0.4560 needs virtualization technology built into the processor.

    Version 3.0.4128 doesn't need virtualization technology in the processor,
    but I think it will still not work without sse3.

    In fact I think both vmware and parallels need sse3 to run.

    If you just need certain windows apps to run you could try crossover 6.0
    to install them and use them.

    Hello all ... Why dont you try the latest BootCamp version or do you really prefer the parallels's virtualization technology. I've try parallels for my windows games but i've had many probs for install them and play. Since i've install bootcamp all my games (FPS, rpg, etc...) are "playable".. ^^
