    Run it with -v switch (verbose), so you can see the actual error

    Hi Niekess,
    In the System Settings have you unchecked 'Enable EFI'

    Or if your using an x64 Host trying 'arch=i386 -v' at boot might work better. :cool:

    VMWare Workstation patched seems to be easier to virtualize OSX
    can anyone confirm that iWork Numbers under virtual enviroment works without "missed grid" bug ? if so, pls post your details: host hardware, host os,virtual enviroment,guest os,edition [i.e: i7-2500\p8h61lx\4gb\ssd kingston\LG 24" DVI; win7sp1 eng x86; virtual box 4.10; mac os x sl 10.6.7]
