10.5: Virtualize machine-specific 10.4 in Fusion 2
Authored by: mdc1952 on Mar 02, '10 01:18:21PM

I hypothetically tried this on an early intel iMac that I would like to update to Snow Leopard. After installing SL on a small partition, I academically successfully got Tiger to run. However, the Graphics Mode change seems to have no effect on the resolution. Anything else I can try or what may have gone wrong?

Well, hypothetically and academically above all in the name of free knowledge: it's quite logical and fascinating to experimentally virtualize also Mac OS X Client, Spock would have said (maybe?)... :-)

As for your problem, it's difficult to help without more details; BTW, sure that you correctly changed the graphics mode key in the guest virtual machine, and not by mistake on the host...?

After some additional fiddling with the plist file, I finally got it to boot in 1440x900 so I can work in full screen. Thanks for the tip. Now if only Apple would make it ok for VMWare to do a more fully functional method.
