No! my version is just 7. So it is not latest. If I afford the latest version, then may it work?

You said that you also had the problem.... so in which version? 7 or 7.0.1?

If you own VMWare Workstation 7.0...you should get a free upgrade to 7.0.1...

i got the 7.0.1 version but i can not quarantee you that if u buy it , it is going to work 100 % . Before i made it work i made lots of test with different mac cd's . My opinion ( dont now if its allowed buy the site) download a cracked version of vmware wokrstation 7.0.1 and if its work buy it


also use the latest version of mac os i think its 10,62

I think it will be a lot of easier if u have the original copy of the dvd since from a research i made if u download the iso image of mac from internet , windows cant burn it properly . Anyway i used this guide , there is a file inside with the settings of vmware

Install Mac OS X Snow Leopard on a PC using VMware

Hi!
I followed the tutorial and got this(after powering on the vm)

Hi Arc,

This is from the link iraklis provided.

*In order for this to work, your computer must have a processor that supports virtualization. If it does not, you may receive errors. For the most part, any newer processor lines: Core 2 Duo, Quad Core, and Core i7 should all work fine.

But, don’t expect to not get errors if you are using an older Pentium 4 machine. The processor must be Intel and not AMD*

Hi guys
Current version of vmware workstation is 7.01 build 227600

Any chance of showing some screen shots of your OS-X running in a Virtual machine on a Host W7 computer.

Most people I know (including me - and I've been using VM's for years) have been unable to get this to work using a LEGAL un-hacked OS-X disc.

To the other question - the simplest way of getting VM's to start at boot time so you don't have to logon to the HOST system and start them manually is to use VMWARE SERVER (Free) then you can start your vm's at boot time automatically as a system SERVICE.

As explained previously - another advantage in this approach is that a user can then logon DIRECTLY to the VM without needing an account on the HOST machine either.

Even more use is the fact that if the VM ITSELF is a server such as W2K3 server then a user can connect directly to an application running on that server such as say SAP or ORACLE without needing a logon or an account on the SERVER either - and can also connect to the application from anywhere without needing RDP etc etc - so long as you know the IP address or domain name of the VM and have set up the relevant ports on your router when accessing the VM remotely from the Internet.

Cheers
jimbo

I also go with Jimbo.
Please post a screenshot of your desktop running a vm where the host is windows 7 and the guest is mac os x. I heared (never seen) that some guys have done it. I also want to have it, but at present I just want to see it.

Not exactly this image... I wanted an image where there is a windows 7 desktop with a vmware window opened, and a mac os x is running in that vmware window.

This is an image I collected from net. I want an image where the situation is the reverse.... that is the host is a windows os and the guest is a mac os.

Hi there
We need to see an image of the HOST running Win 7 and a Guest (in Windowed mode) running OS-X ON A SINGLE SCREEN.

It's SIMPLE to get Windows to run in a VM on OS-X -- we need it THE OTHER WAY AROUND please.

Cheers
