wooing Mac OS X 10.6.3!


This is the link to get the OS/X “Snow Leopard” [as 10.6 is called. I was reading a book and found out that no new functionalities were added with this release & so just the existing code was refactored, that’s y the codename “Leopard” stayed. Its funny how they’ve named it everything from Cheetah to Jaguar, Puma, Panther & Tiger], for x86 vmware image and the installation has been summarized quite well.

After I got this link from TPB, I was compelled to check if my current system [Acer Aspire 5738] supports Hardware Virtualization, which apparently is needed to run the VM smoothly. It turns out that my Core 2 Duo Mobile doesn’t have a lot of other functionalities as well, its the cheap chip πŸ˜›

Core 2 Duo T6600 😦 No Virtualization Capabilities

I should've researched well before taking T6600! 😦

Though hardware virtualization is now out of question even then I’ve been trying to fix this thing… it shows me the start up screen and then the machine gets restarted. 😐 there is just nothing I can do now, instead of upgrading the processor (can i do that?).

Below: when I boot with ‘-v’ mode.’

Crap! VM Reboots after this 😦

I’ll keep you posted people. Ta!
