MacBook Air :: Making Fast XP On VMWare Fusion 2 On MBA?

Sep 16, 2008

Had been running my boot-camp Windows XP on my MBA using VMWare Fusion. A new version just got released, and I quickly upgraded.

After the upgrade, VM boot up takes for ever. Even after that, the performance is too poor. I tried uninstalling and re-installing VMWare tools, but the install doesn't complete.

MacBook Pro :: VMware Fusion Take The Battery On The 13" ?

Jul 13, 2009

I fire up VMware fusion to run Outlook 2007 -- I originally thought this was the greatest thing since sliced bread. What I've noticed, however, is the MBP gets noticeably warmer on the back left quadrant, and battery levels drop significantly. As soon as I close the VM, I can tell the machine cooling off and battery performance looks better. Is this just me or are other people noticing this? I do think the overall VMware fusion + outlook integration is awesome, but I think it might just have to hold out until Snow Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: Using 13" - Best Spec For VMWare Fusion 3?

Apr 19, 2010

Am keen to get a 13" MacBook Pro, but not sure which spec to get. There is quite a price jump (250 GBP) between the basic spec and the high spec, and the only difference is the processor speed (2.66Hz vs 2.4GHz) and a larger HDD. Is the difference in performance really worth the price jump?

I want to run Windows XP via VMWare Fusion 3, specifically to run software for academic work, namely Windows MS Office 2007, Endnote, SPSS and GraphPad Prism. I will use Mac OS X for everything else, namely internet, email, iTunes, iPhoto and iMovie.

MacBook Air :: VMware Fusion With Windows XP Without Super Drive?

May 13, 2008

I do NOT have the superdrive and would like to install windows XP pro on my MBA with VMware Fusion. I've tried making .dmg, .iso, & .cdr images of the windows XP disc but i'm having NO luck with Fusion recognizing the disc image. When I create the new Virtual Machine I select "use disc image" and point to the appropriate disc image file. I keep getting a "no bootable device" error from fusion.

Can somebody who has successfully installed windows on an MBA without using a superdrive give me the step by step instructions you used...I'm getting pretty annoyed at this point.

MacBook Pro :: Vmware Fusion Performance Windows 7 Versus XP

Nov 7, 2009

I am tempted to purchase 2nd hand 13.3" MacBook Pro 2.26GHz, 2gb ram, 160gb hdd.

I have a need to run windows as a virtual machine for some occasional .NET development (which I am studying)

I have a couple of questions

What is the impact of battery life running a VM? I intended to run it in Unity mode and only have open .net tools such as visual web developer.

Also, does anybody know the performance of windows 7 in the new Fusion version? (What's aero like?)

Would the performance of an XP vm be better?

Mac Pro :: Using Boot Camp And VMWare Fusion Together

Jan 29, 2008

Hello, everybody. I just discovered this forum, having finally taken the plunge and bought a Mac Pro to replace an aging Dell PC. (My wife has had a MacBook Pro since early last year, which is what convinced me to switch.)

My main use for the new machine will be photo processing, including astrophotography. I will obviously be able to use Photoshop natively, but will have to use Windows for one or two astro packages (and also for occasional use of an old Windows version of Mathematica).

So, my questions:

Am I right to think that it is possible to install Windows with Boot Camp and then also use the same Windows install under Fusion? If so, is there anything special that needs to be done when first doing the Boot Camp install?

OS X :: Internet Not Working With VMWare Fusion?

Apr 23, 2008

I did a search on these forums, but came up with nothing. I have two virtual machines set up with VMWare Fusion, one is my Boot Camp partition for Windows XP Professional, the other is Mandriva Linux. In both of these virtual machines, the internet doesn't work. I tried changing the network settings for VMWare Fusion to both NAT and bridged, and neither of them work. It's a little annoying because there's not too much you can do without an internet connection.

OS X :: Installing Windows 7 RC Through VMware Fusion?

Jul 29, 2009

I have the Windows 7 RC .iso (it's 64bit, I should have that one, right? Macs are 64 bit not 32 bit?) file and I want to install it through my VMware fusion app. Please note, this is NOT the beta for Windows 7, it's the newer RC.

How in the world do I do this? Some online guides say to set it as Windows Server 2008 x64, others say Windows Vista 64.

Could someone take me through the process of installing it? Or link me to a video or proven article? Setup goes through usually but the next time I boot into Windows 7 it tells me there was an installation error and Windows could not find the startup disk.

I have a DVD for my physics class that only can be opened in Windows for whatever reason (I also have a game I want to use). OS X recognizes it, but when I boot into Windows 7 (RTM Build 7600) in VMware Fusion, I see no sign of it.

How do I open it?

Applications :: VMware Fusion Performance ?

Jan 10, 2010

Running Fusion on my 2+ year old MBP has become a near hopeless frustration. When I first got the machine, it ran pretty well, but it hasn't for quite awhile now. It tends to be sluggish to the point of uselessness. Currently, I'm doing a trial of Fusion 3. I'm a licensed owner of the prior versions.

I don't need it much, but when I do, I really need it. I gave up on using it with Windows 7, which is fine, XP will do. Once in awhile, I'll run it and all will be well. Other times, most of the time, it's unusable. I see no pattern to what makes it run well or not. Earlier today, I rebooted and started Fusion all by itself and didn't run anything else. Didn't help much.

Anyone had these problems and found a solution? I see lots of people with problems and plenty of others without. But not many who've bridged the gap.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: VMWare Fusion 3 Won't Run After 10.7.4 Update

Today I went to run WinXP under VMWare Fusion 3 and got the following errors: "Unable to retrieve kernel zone size" "Failed to initialize monitor device." "Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to" It won't start. 1. Can I roll back 10.7.4 to 10.7.3?3. Can I re-install 10.7.0 on an external disk or partition and run from that? Then I could recover some files from WinXP.  (Last backup of WinXP is a couple weeks old).Other?

Windows On Mac :: Can I Boot From A VMWare Fusion Instance
