OSx under vmware in windows (network and graphics display)

I’m writing this because I don’t want to lose it and it may be useful for somebody one day.

To get OSX to work under in vmware windows, add
ethernet0.virtualDev=”e1000″
to the vmwareĀ  (whatever the name is).vmx file (This lets the ISX client os see the ethernet card)

and to the

/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

add some keys like
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1280x1024x32</string>

This should get it working properly.

  1. I changed the line with 1440x900x32 and works but it’s not the size i requested something like 1152×864 and if i put only 1440×900 the machine can’t load so i must now to reinstall it :( so for the next time can you tell me exactly what size i must to put for my 1440×900 screen?
    Another question my host pc is connected by Wifi (lan) to my box so i don’t think i can’t connect it when i am under osx vmware; do you have any solution please?

  2. You just answered my two questions I had to get OSX running on my winXP!

    Now I have my laptop running OSX fullscreen(1440×900) and with internet access. That’s beautiful!
