[Guide] How to Install MAC OS X Snow Leopard in VMware Workstation 8
Today I am going to show how to install MAC OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 in VirtualBox 4.1.4 on Windows 7. I was able to run MAC OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 in VirtualBox 4.1.4 after several days of trial & error. Here I have covered all steps with screen shots to install MAC OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.6 in VirtualBox 4.1.4. So lets get started,
My Setup -
1. Dell Precision Laptop with 12 Gigs of Memory with Core 2 Extreme Processor
2. VirtualBox 4.1.4
3. Windows 7 64-Bit
So lets get started,
1. Download & Install VirtualBox 4.1.4 from Download VirtualBox 4.1.4 Latest Release
2. Get a original Snow Leopard retail DVD or ISO file from here
Assign Name to Virtual Machine & Select Operating System & version as shown Below,
Assign minimum of 20GB of Hard disk & create a VM.
Now go to Virtual Machine settings & disable USB Controller as shown below. I faced booting issues if USB Controller is enabled.
Use English for the Main Language & Click Next,
Click Continue to Install MAC OS X,
Here you will not see any Virtual Hard Disk for installation purpose. So now Click on Utilities->Disk Utilities.
On Left hand side select your Virtual Hard Disk & right click on it click on Erase to format it. After formatting hard disk close the “Disk Utility”
Now you can see the newly erased hard disk. So select the disk where you want to install MAC OS X & Click Install,
Now installation has started, generally it takes around 15 to 20 Minutes.
Click on Restart to complete the MAC OS X installation,
