Virtualize Mac OS X Client on VMware Fusion
Authored by: Sven G on Jan 15, '10 05:32:32AM

The blog above - http://blog.rectalogic.com/2008/08/virtualizing-mac-os-x-leopard-client.html - now recommends this for VMware Fusion 3:

"Fusion 3.0 uses EFI instead of BIOS by default. After creating a new VM and before booting it from the install DVD/ISO, edit the *.vmx file and remove/comment out the firmware="efi" line. VMware [Fusion] will then use the hacked boot image from darwin.iso."

Some of the latest comments in that blog (the Fusion 3-related ones) are also interesting.

So, essentially, in order to virtualize Mac OS X Client in Fusion 3, be sure to change the virtual firmware to BIOS instead of the default EFI (if you create a new VM in Fusion 3; existing VMs created from Fusion 2 should continue to work without problems)...
