Hi,

I am running Vista Home Premium on my Vaio Intel Centrino Duo with nVidia GPU. Will this solution work for me. I just need to purchase OS X Leopard for the VMware image right? Can you point me to some guides or tutorial please. Thank you.

EDIT: Is this a retail version install or hackintosh (iATKOS and Kalyway) ?

gyver, I'm sorry that I can't help you with your "Reverse" Virtual machine idea.
This post is dedicated for Mac users who wanted to use supplementary Windows alongside Mac OS X but not the other way. Cheers!

Sorry for the late respond guys, have been kinda busy recently.

@hellfried, thanks for the info about VirtualBox, if possible, you can help contribute abit regarding the pros and cons and add some snap shots along too. So maybe later on I will request moderator to merge your posting to the topic post.

@hidayat, as many PD users out there, I didn't encounter any problems using PD 4.0 to run WinXP. Just make sure you tweak the right resource allocation for your virtual machine in order to run those programing apps you mentioned without any hiccups. As said before, if you need to run apps with full native resource, use Bootcamp.

@dennisccy, maybe I'm not in a position to advice you upon VMWare Fusion problem, but make sure your copies of VMWare Fusion, Windows XP or Vista, and your Mac OSX are all up to date. As your description is quite vague, I also cant pin point what's exactly the cause. If you do have setup BootCamp, I would suggest try booting your Windows with BC to check whether it is your Windows problem or VMWare instead.

I have install VMware Fusion for me to work. 1 problem that I found that I install MSN on my VMware Fusion and try to video chat with my friend, it seem doesn't work, no webcam detected on my MacBook. I switch back to MAC OS X, try iChat and Skype, it works!
Is that normal when switching to VMware Fusion windows XP MSN cannot do video chat?

Guys,

Situation like this.

Main machine: OS X Leopard
Virtual machine: XP Pro SP2

If the XP machine running broadband adapter, can it allow to share the internet connection so the main machine can access the internet?

Thanks
