I am trying to install OSx into a VM on windows, and have to jump through some hoops

first off, the install disk is HFS of course...
So on the mac I converted it to an ISO image.
I can't copy the ISO because of some wierd issue, which i think is the contained files have security on them.
I tried dragging the files to a USB drive and it complains of authorization.
so....

How do I strip off or convert all the files in an ISO to have everyone/everything permissions?

Your host OS cannot see the file permissions of the ISO, as it's not even running the same filesystem.

I think your issue doesn't have to do with permissions.

bah. its all crazy. i can't even describe all the wierdness going on.

I cant copy the ISO from a mac mini, across the network, to my windows machine.
I can't copy the iso to a USB drive.
i cant zip it, well i can, but its corrupted.
bleh. I have now copied the ISO to another mac, and now will try to copy over from there.

i hate computers.

I had extraction issues with all but two of the osx vms I have used / isos I've downloaded (either install discs or supposed working vms) but the bad filez in the package was a common denominator

I'm purty sure u will only get tiger to work I have one working if u ewant it

2)  can u skype the files to a windows box/vm and install winrar?  with winrar u can right click an iso and extract all to afolder and then zip it or tar.gz it

3) I think natively maacs want .dmgs but idk 4 sure

d) lol  hate computers too.

I have all the shit u might need pm me or whatever

it must be some kind of HFS issue.
so...
I have now installed macdrive7, which i had to hack to get to run under windows7  Roll Eyes

I am currently making a jolietISO of the OSx install disk, which is taking FOREVER...
I am hoping that will then be readable by VMware to install it.

I had 2 minutes left, now im back up to 10 minutes.

well that didnt go.

so I am now onto using iATKOS_5i from the OSx86 team.
and a VMware template from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=139178

i am able to get through the first part of the install, but then it hangs on the reboot. so now I actually read the instructions, and am trying again...

chmod -R 777 /root_folder/*

Maybe?
