Hello folks,

I now have two VM managers on OS X Lion system. I tried to set up OS X Lion guest with Parallels Desktop 7 but it requires recovery HD partition on my system (Problem ID 397). I do not have recovery partition. I tried different ways but it did not work. I finally gave up.

Later I bought VMWare Fusion 4 from VMWare website at promotion price and downloaded a copy. I installed it on my system. I successfully installed Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server and OS X Lion as guests with Fusion 4. It does not need iBoot/Multibeast to install them as guest.

I was able install OS X Lion from InstallESD.dmg directly because Fusion 4 emulates real Apple architecture with real EFI firmware.

I recommend VMWare Fusion 4 for hackintosh systems.

Thanks,
Sword7
