PXE booting under VMware on the MacBook Pro
« on: October 08, 2007, 10:11:27 pm »
Hi all,

Just wanted to report that we successfully added a new MacBook Pro running VMware as a PXE booted MD today. It installed perfectly first time and runs like a dream... DVD playback from local, ripped and remote DVD's was excellent. Also the AVwizard would configure the MacBook into any of the currently selectable video resolutions without a hickup (that a challenge on a real PC let alone an emulated one ;-))

More over the next few days!

Install vmware workstation create a vm and boot
you can probably even cheat and use vmware player.  just dl a small vmware appliance and use vmware player to start it and select pxe boot.

I have done this on PC but i would think the procedure should be very similar for the mac
