snow-leopard-vmwareWe’ve shown you how to Install Mac OS 10.7 Lion on PC, and lots of Mac OSX Snow Leopard on PC Guides now its turn to create a virtual machine instance that runs OSX 10.6.6 on VMWARE Workstation on Windows PC.

Why 10.6.6? Apple introduced Mac App Store, a versatile store for Mac apps, so if you wish to try them out, here’s your easiest bet!

Summary for Snow Leopard 10.6.6 VMware : We’ll download a pre-configured Vmware image for OSX 10.6.6 and then upgrade it to 10.7 Lion.

Pre-requisites / Downloads

Running Mac OSX 10.6.6 in VMWare Workstation

This would be pretty easy if you are not new to Vmware and Hackintosh installations. Its pretty straightforward, most of the stuff is already in-place.

  • Launch VMWare Worksation and Select “Open Existing VM or Team”
  • Unzip downloaded file and Browse and Select MacOs10.6.6 (If it asks you to “Take Ownership”, do so.)
  • For the first Run, do not change settings, just Power on the virtual machine.
  • Select “Moved it” if you get a prompt about virtual machine files.
  • At run time, you would see the empire EFI screen, click on the screen so that you are “In” the virtual machine and Press F5.
  • Using your arrow pad, hit the “Left” arrow to chose the “mac” named hard drive.
  • On arrow pad again, hit the “Down” arrow. Go down once more to the “Boot Verbose” option.
  • On the bottom of Mac desktop, hit the gear looking icon (system preferences.) That should be easy to find even though its all russian.
  • In the top category select the thing that looks like a flag. Click and drag English to the top.
  • Go to next tab and chose the top two tabs to “U.S. English” and “English (United States).” or any other language you are comfortable with. When done, log out. On next login it will ask you password. Just hit enter, there’s no password set.
  • That’s’ all you are now running Mac OSX in Vmware.
  • You can configure settings for your virtual machine on next boot. Play around with RAM and Video RAM settings.

    Solution for this error message:

    “Mac OS X is not supported with software virtualization. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Workstation supports hardware virtualization.”

    is to make sure that you have selected “Other OS” from Guest Operation System in Virtual Machine options tab

    I was able to get this to work, after using iBoot.iso (found elsewhere). Thank you!!

    How do you go about installing VMtools with this method? I get the error: ‘Could not find component on update server. Contact VMware Support or your system administrator.’ I’ve tried booting from the darwin_snowy.iso (seen in other guides), but it won’t load up the OS.

  • hi taran.. the vmware image you listed doesn’t have darwin_snow.iso … also in cd-rom it has attached efi iso instead of darwin iso… please update along with download link for darwin_snow.iso as its link in your previous posts has gone dead.
