Mac OS X is not supported with software virtualization. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Workstation supports hardware virtualization.

1. Your CPU (Intel Core 2 Duo E7200) doesn't support hardware virtualization
2. Mac OS X on virtual PCs is DEADLY SLOW
3. What OS X version are you attempting to install?

Any OS X Version (10.3 and older) cannot be installed on Virtual PCs as they are not Intel Supported OS. They are only PowerPC CPU supported.
