VM Ware Disk Utility failed to restore image to USB
I have successfully run Snow Leopard in Windows via VMWare Workstation 7. But I wanted to have a full running Snow Leopard in a separate Hard Drive (I find virtual Snow Leopard to be slow). I have an image of Snow Leopard.
1. I plugged in my Corsair 16GB Voyager flash drive.
2. Run Disk Utility, like the usual setup for Snow Leopard USB preparation.
3. I waited for it to restore...
4. When the minutes count down reaches to about 1 minute, I get an error "Restore Failure" "Could not restore - Cannot allocate memory"
5. The weird thing is if I run my USB, it seems that everything was inside because I can see the Snow Leopard icons and background.
6. I run EP45UD3P Snow Leopard program to patch my USB to be bootable.
7. Restart my computer and have USB boot first.
8. Darwin Bootloader boots up, then I apple logo loads up.
9. I got the Language selection section, after I click Continue.
10. I get an error saying that it cannot be installed.
Can you please help me?
I do not own a Mac to do the USB Disk Utility, so I have to do it via VMWare in Windows 7. I believe it may have something to do with VMWare's issue with the USB
I'm having the exact problems
VM Snow Leopard cannot restore to usb flash drive or usb harddrive
it gives error right at the end of restore
it is also able to start the usb installation but not able to finish it
BTW I use a legit SnowLeopard DVD for this!! (not an image)
and yes, arnold, virtual Snow Leo is slow as hell (for restoring anyway)
