10.5: Virtualize machine-specific 10.4 in Fusion 2
Authored by: mkuron on Nov 09, '08 10:26:42AM
Just tried it with a 10.4.8 DVD that came with my MacBookPro2,2 (October 2006). Installing to the vmdk worked seamlessly (after I manually formatted it with HFS+ by mounting it into a Leopard VM). But it won't boot - it just gets stuck at the grey Apple logo, even before the spinner shows up. If I boot it up with the option -v or -s, it gets stuck at a black screen after scrolling through a list of messages (ending with something about TSC clock). I even upgraded the vmdk to 10.4.11 (just point the 10.4.11 combo updater to the mounted vmdk), but no difference. I don't think the problem is Fusion-related since I'm running a Leopard VM without any problems.
