Running OS X Lion 10.7 on VMware Workstation 7.1.4 and 8.0 (via: How to Install Retail OS X 10.6 under VMware Workstation or Player – InsanelyMac Forum)

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/10/14

This might not be strictly legal, but it is supposed to be possible to run the retail OS X Lion 10.7 under VMware Workstation 8 (or VMware Fusion 4) and VMware Workstation 7.1.4 (or VMware Player 3.1.4) on a regular PC (if that PC Supports VT) running Windows 7 x64.

Since Apple MacBook still don’t come with a TrackPoint (and having suffered from RSI, that is about the only pointing device I can use) there are only two options for me:

  1. Go the route described above
  2. Use an external USB TrackPoint keyboard with a Mac
    (traveling with a huge external USB keyboard, I’d look like my long time friend Mark Miller from DevExpress, who also suffered from RSI)
    (boy I wish there was a wireless ThinkPad TrackPoint keyboard)
