Hackintosh on VMware
I ended up trying this route because I needed that partition for Ubuntu. No matter how many workarounds I tried, I couldn't get neither my audio or wireless internet to work (interestingly enough, though, my wireless internet works fine when i rune OS X in VMware)
I wasn't expecting it to be markedly fast or anything. But it is excruciatingly slow. I've read through many sources and my verdict seems to be that i wont get much more speed than this. I've set VMware to allow OS X to use up to 2gb RAM (out of 3 total) and that basically did nothing. Can VMware Tools actually provide a performance increase?
If there is no way to improve my performance, I'll have to install it in a partition. My problem with that though, is that when I select "shrink" from Vista's partition manager, I get an error box that says "there is not enough memory available to complete the operation. save your work, close other programs, and then try again." even though I have no other programs running and have like 90 gigs left.
Any suggestions to any of those problems?
thnks in advance
at least you got yours to work, mine sits at apple loading screen forever
I got that too at first. Try:
Edit virtual machine settings> processors> and select "VMware kernel paravirtualization"
that did it for me
im having trouble finding the settings
VMWare gives an error if I enable that setting...
It seems to be very slow, i suppose it has to do with the graphicssupport in vmware. I havent figured out a way to get the networking to work yet, when I do i will go apple RDP or VLC instead, but will give it a go later this weekend.
Anyway, i just downloaded the pcwiz version från piratebay and imported to vmware.
They have some guides for networks in trouble
Have a look at them

It became much faster
I'm using leopard 10.5.2 on vmware 7.0.
I didn't install the OSX. I downloaded virtual machine folder and just loaded.
It was extremely slow - safari took about 20 seconds to launch after clicking.
I searched and searched online but couldn't find a way to improve the performance.
So I just gave it a try. I converted IDE drive to SCSI and now it runs much faster. Safari now launches within 0.5 sec.
If you have spare time, plz try yourself too and let us know what happens.
here's what I did.
I opend the virtual machine configration file (mine is 'FreeBSD 64-bit.vmx) in notepad and made some change.
ide0:0.present = "TRUE" ---> "FALSE"
ide0:0.filename = "leopard.vmdk" ---> deleted
scsi0:0.present = "FALSE" ---> "TRUE"
and I added this line under it.
scsi:0.fileName = "leopard.vmdk"
Now i'm gonna try to install adobe cs4 on it and see how it goes.
Is damn slow XD!!! why you guys dont just install it for real?
