I’ve just an email reminding me that Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, is available from July 2011.  So I thought I’d blog this now.

Oddly, when I try to un Mac OS X 10.7 Lion on VMware Player 3.1.4, I get the following error message!

Mac OS X Lion 10.7 running under VMware Player 3.1.4 'This is not a MAC'

More work required, when trying Mac OS X Lion 10.7, I get the error message “The guest operating system is not Mac OS X Server”.

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

In this final part, I look at virtualising Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.7 on VMware Workstation 7.1.4. I don’t forsee any issues, with this as I’ve had Mac OS X 10.6.5 Snow Leopard running on VMware Workstation 6.5.3.

Over the next few days, I look at using the FREE VMware Player 3.0 to also virtualise and use these Mac OS X operating systems.

Mac OS X Virtualization Part II – Install Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

Monday, May 30th, 2011

So in Part II of this series of Virtualising Mac OS X opertating systems using VMware Workstation 7.1.4 , I’m going to have a look at the pre-release of Apple Mac OS X “Lion”.

Using VMware Workstation 7.1.4 and the Mac OS X Server option, I was able to install Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion”. This time I’ve boosted the RAM requirement to 4GB and 2 virtual CPUs, so the virtual machine performs better. No installation issues were observed.
