- Install MacOS DEV DVD under PearPC (Use the default 3.5 GB Image that Prassys Installer Creates) http://www.pearpc.net
- Get DITTO and PATCHED Rosetta (oah750d)
- Under VMWare add more harddisks into your VMWare:
- Add a new Hard Disk that will be your main hard drive as you will get Ditto and Rosetta from there.
- Add a new Hard Disk using the Fake VMDK with your pearpc drive image
- Make your VMWare cdrom to use the Darwin 8.0.1 CD Iso file.
- Get in Darwin and go to /Volumes/YourHD/FolderThatHaveRosettaAndStuff
- Do a cp -RLv oah750d /Volumes/YourPearPcImage/usr/libexec/oah
- Mount your Darwin cd by doing :
- mkdir /mnt
- mount -t cd9660 /dev/diskXsY /mnt (find the info you need with "disktool -l")
- Do a cp -RLv /mnt/System/Library/Extensions/ApplePS2Controller.kext /Volumes/YourPearPcImage/System/Library/Extensions
- Do a cp -RLv /Volumes/YourPearPcImage/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Bom.framework /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks
- Do a tar xvzf ditto.tgz
- Do a ditto -rsrc /Volumes/YourPearPcImage /
- Wait for DITTO to finish up.
- Get into your mactel installation, Smile, go to terminal and issue :
