With the availability of Apple's latest addition to the Mac OS X family – Mountain Lion (watch the video here) - which was announced earlier this week, we have started working on some new video tutorials specifically focusing on Mac OS X 10.8 in respect to our VMware Fusion product.
It will take us a few weeks to get these tutorials done and dusted. So, while you are waiting, here is a tutorial which demonstrates how to install Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) as a virtual machine in VMware Fusion 4. This video is based on the VMware Knowledge Base article Installing Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) as a virtual machine in Fusion 4 (2005334).
We know that the majority of you Mac junkies are looking to test out Mac OS X 10.8 as soon as possible. Before you do, ensure that you read the information available in the following blog posts first to save you some headaches:
- Support Insider Blog – Will VMware Fusion run on OSX Mountain Lion?
- VMware Fusion Blog – VMware Fusion and OS X Mountain Lion FAQ
A cool and intesting way to give Mountain Lion a test-drive might be to install the VMware Fusion Technology Preview 2012 on one of your super-cool Mac systems and then install OS X 10.8 inside of a virtual machine running on that platform. The Fusion Technology Preview is a beta-type platform, so it should not be used in your production environment — but it sure would sit nicely in your test and development environments.
Maybe if we get some time over the next few days we might even create a video or two quickly demonstrating how to install the Tech Preview and OS X 10.8 inside of a virtual machine….we are not making any promises though .
Anyway, enough talking….here is the video showing Installing Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) as a virtual machine in VMware Fusion 4.
