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

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.
