As far as I'm aware only hypervisors that are running on a Mac host (and that means Mac hardware) can run Mac OS X as a virtual machine. VMWare fusion, and VirtualBox can both do this in the Mac environment, but they can't if you're running on another system. It might be possible to get around this, but I don't know such trickery myself.
The tutorials I followed were Win 7 x64 VMWare on similiar h/w to mine...It cabbie done, I just need review my handling of the DMG conversion or torrent a pre-done ISO.

Re: Mac OS 10.7 Lion Upgrade

I'm missing my "Save As" option in Pages. This new fangled Autosave and "Save a Version" crap is complicating something that wasn't broken in the first place.

It's auto save on a whole new level..! It uses the Time Machine interface which allows you to look at (and use) every change you ever made in a document. You can drag-n-drop items out of previous edits even if they aren't being used in the current version of your document.

But it's just so unnecessary. Best way right now is to "Duplicate" and then rename the file after you've done that. Pain.

Re: Mac OS 10.7 Lion Upgrade

This new autosave feature has become a bit of a marmite thingy amongst the Apple cult community. You either love it or hate it.

I can see where it's coming from, but I'm not entirely convinced it fits into the way I work.
