    I was gonna pop the question on the Mac forum but after doing a bit of careful research it seems that Vmware player doesn't support the Mac OS however this can be circumvented by downloading the file required from none other than the pirate bay. And the latest version of the Mac Os is 10.6.3 Snow leopard I thought about porting a office 2010 crack to it but decided not to do it. That was only because I thought it was unecessary however I'm getting off topic the general thing is Vmware player does support it if you download it froom the pirate bay i think

    To install yourself you need a macosx installed already somewhere else to get files.

    Only real way to do it is download a preinstalled version, but be careful as its probably got hacks and viruses in it.

    There are many people out there who have created VMware images of the MacOS and you can find them easily by Googling around. I have one of those images here and I can tell you it does indeed work, although I'll warn you ahead of time that the performance is lacking despite what resources such as memory or stroage you dedicate to the VM. I personally don't open the image much and for me, it's merely a conversation piece amongst other IT people who have interest in those types of things.

    The snow leopard (for VMWare) on I've seen torrents for also require your CPU/MB to be VT capable.

    Does anyone else have a problem with VMWare breaking their networking? Whenever I've installed VMWare or Player, my Belkin USB Network Hub loses its network connection. Also, it seems to wreak havoc with VPNs. Anyone know a work around for those problems, or is it just me? I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate now, but I had the same problem with XP Pro.

    What he asking is if anyone knows where he can get a pre-installed iso of OSX snow leopard so that he can install a copy in VMware...
    And unfortunately I gave this a try and the copy I got needed a Intel chip in it...
