Hackintosh Vmware Notes

Written by

amd cpu need patch
intel cpu need patch
SSE2 - cpu encyrption?
SSE3 - cpu encyrption?
PPF1 - patch to allow the detection of hard drives
PPF2 - patch to allow the detection of hard drives

ie

Mac_OS_X_10.4.8_[JaS_AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3_with_PPF1__amp__PPF2].iso

Notes:

a pre patched disk is required to install mac os on vmware or a pc as the HFS+ disk structure of macs cannot be seen by normal PCs.

There then needs to be a modified bootload to get past the mac hardware tests.

-------------
there is a method to convert a *.dmg file in to a vmware hard disk using a utility

------------------
to get the ethernet utility to work in vmware the config file has to be altered as below:

add details

nb once altered do not reedit the virtual machine or the changes will be lost

-------------------
darwin seems to be the modified bootloader

-----------------
Settings indicate to set up the vmware machine as FreeBSD (Mac OS X is a modified Unix), but if you have a core duo (add other boards) you should set you vmware machine as a Window NT otherwise you will get a kernel/stack error.

------------------

also do not have vmware machine online while setting it up as it talks back to apple.

daves 10.4.1 -- works windows nt + freebsd
Jas 10.4.8 -- installs but locks up on 1st boot
hazard 10.5.6 intel only sse2 sse3 -- gets to the cursor only
XxX_x86_10.5.6_Install_Disc_Universal_Final -- craps out
Kalyway_10.5.2_DVD_Intel_Amd -- have to add shit in? very slow doesnt reaqlly boot
Mac OS Leopard 10.5.2 AMD Intel SSE2 SSE3
iPC 10.5.6 Leopard Hackintosh AMD.iso - kernel error

NB:
My CPU is Intel Core 2 Duo, I can only installed IDeneb 10.5.6 with VT enabled at BIOS. After it is successfully installed, I need to go back to BIOS to disabled the VT, otherwise I am unable to boot into the Mac OS(keep getting *** Virtual machine kernel stack fault (hardware reset) *** provided I have changed around different guest OS). I have this done using vmware 6.5.2. Hope this helps.

on a hackintosh, to get the ps2 keyboard to work after install a ps2 mouse needs to be plugged in and the computer powered down and rebooted.
