    Question iPC 10.5.6 in VMware or Expanding Disk Capacity

    Hello all. Although I am newly registered and this is my first post, I have used this forum in the past.

    Basically I have two different questions, but I can use a solution for either one.

    I would prefer a solution for this question. Does anyone know how to successfully install iPC 10.5.6 in VMware? I like this release, but have not been able to install it successfully in VMware.

    If I can't successfully install the 10.5.6 version in VMware, my other question is how can I easily expand the disk capacity of OSX in VMware? I currently have 10.5.5 installed on VMware. I just downloaded the VMware image which was a Russian version and fixed everything, but the drive capacity is only 16GB. I used the vdiskmanager for VMware to expand the disk to 100GB, but it leaves you with a 16GB partition. When using the Disk Utility in Mac, it doesn't appear to be possible to expand the partition.


    Basically I just want an OSX image in VMware with decent hard drive capacity. I would take just about any solution that will give me Leopard in VMware.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    I've successfully installed iPC 10.5.6 in a VMware environment however I noticed it slows down after a bit of use, a hard reboot fixes this though. I'm not sure why but I recall reading about it earlier - I'm not sure if iDeneb works any better.

    It took a fair bit of playing around to getting it installed, I was able to get it to start into the installation screen (mounting ISO as DVD-ROM drive) but had difficulty getting it to start into OSX ater installation - this seems to be resolved after I installed the DSDT patch with newPET, amongst other things.

    Default What about using the freely available VMWare ESXi server?

    Hi guys,
    did someone try this way of getting any of the Mac OSX ISOs to run in a Phenom CPU? If I understand this correctly, installing the layer of ESXi should eliminate the CPU compatibility issue (AMD vs Intel). Also, with the new ESXi being as slim as VMware claims it to be, the system should run fast.
    Any advice or experience are appreciated.
    Thank you,
