Kernel Panic 10.4.8. with MacPro 3.0 and VMWARE Fusion Beta/ Parallels (?)

got I couple of times different Kernel panics in

Already made. In the meantime one more report in VMTN
about the same issue with parallels.
Can you link to the parallels thread?
I can reliably reproduce a kernel panic in 10.4.8 by ejecting a volume mounted from a host system (default afp mount) that is either of two macintel systems (mini & mbp).
Problem started when I installed Fusion, went away when I de-installed. Both systems also have Parallels (latest build but one) installed.
The workaround of unloading the networking kexts makes me nervous -- sooner or later I'll forget, and then KABLOOEY!

  • Mouse problems with v10.7 Lion and VMWare Fusion 3.1.3; reboot of Lion temporarily fixes it

    Since installing Lion, my VMWare Fusion 3.1.3 Windows 7 and XP virtual machines have very strange mouse problems.  I thought it might have been caused by 3rd party software on my iMac (Mouse Zoom), because it seemed to work after removing the software, but I have now discovered that it is actually the reboot of OS X v10.7 (and now v10.7.1) that temporarity removes the problem.  However, after a while the problem comes back, requiring another reboot of Lion.
    The problem is strange behavior of mouse button clicks inside the virtual machine, e.g. unable to double click on a folder or program in Windows because it jumps back to the higher folder tree, as if I had hit the ESC key.  In addition to my USB and BlueTooth mice, the Mac touchpad also has the problem.  I have confirmed that the problem is probably in how VMWare maps the iMac human interface devices (HIDs) to the virtual mouse inside the VM, because I am able to get correct mouse function by attaching one of my mice directly to the Virtual Machine (there is an edit to the VMX file that enables HID devices).
    I have deleted and reinstalled VMWare Fusion 3.1.3 per suggestions on the VMWare support site and/or various forums, but that did not help.

    According to: Version 3.1.3 has issues with Lion.  There is a 2011 beta that works better.

  • Bootcamp and VMWare Fusion, possible problem with Bootcamp, cant see USB.

    Would really appreciate your help. So I have MBP mid 2010 with the latest version of OSX Mountain Lion and decided to install Windows 7 on it. I gave it to the professional IT guy, who installed Windows 7 through the latest version of VMWare Fusion. It is not bad overall, but at times incredible slow (which might be because of my slow processor).
    So I decided to install Windows 7 through the BootCamp Assistant - USB way. And did the following steps:
    1)Format USB, put Windows 7 .iso image on it
    2) Installed the latest Windows software through the Bootcamp (step2 tick). However, it said that the latest version would be installed only after Windows 7 is installed (in step3 tick). I clicked OK and moved to Step 3
    3) I started Installing Windows and had a few errors (which were solved by repairing the HDD after rebooting in recovery mode), but all went fine until almost the end. Before the bar almost moved to the end my macbook went to reboot and I though it was all done and ready. I clicked the alt at *ding* sound and no USB was detected.
    I checked disk utility and the thing was portioned.
    I was thinking that MBP doesn't recognize the second Windows installed, and VMWare Fusion needs to be deleted in order to run Bootcamp. I haven't deleted anything, wanted to ask for advice first.
    Any one could think of what's wrong? Thank you.

    You can only install Windows from a USB in one of these computers:
    - MacBook Pro with Retina display.
    - MacBook Air.
    - Mac mini (Mid 2010 and newer).
    - iMac (Late 2012).
    Your Mac doesn't support the Windows installation through a USB drive. However, you have installed Windows through a USB drive. What did you do?
    You did an EFI installation (or a native installation). Apple doesn't support this option because of the huge number of problems it gives, and you have probably erased OS X (or you erased the Windows partition that Boot Camp created, both possibilities). The error you mentioned in 3) was probably that the Windows installer detected that you have a MBR disk instead of a GPT one, and you erased everything.
    First of all, to make sure that you erased everything, hold the Option (Alt) key while your Mac is starting. If you see the OS X partition, start up from it, and make a complete backup of your files with Time Machine.
    Then, what I recommend you is to erase the whole drive by starting in Internet Recovery (hold Command, Option and R keys while your Mac is starting), and use the Time Machine option to restore your files

  • Kernel panics, graphic file corruption with Firewire

    I've been having consistent problems with Firewire since I got my Mac Pro last year. I only recently narrowed it down to Firewire so I thought I'd write it up here for the record.
    I never actually solved the problem, just started using USB-2 instead and the issues went away.
    --I had been getting pretty consistent kernel panics while doing backups or large file transfers to an external FW drive. I tried a few different drives and cables and the panics were consistent.
    --I also noticed a strange problem where graphic files I'd backed up (TIFF, JPEG, etc.) would have these single-pixel horizontal streaks running through them. This was a little disconcerting because it wasn't picked up during verification, it was just there when I opened the backup file.
    I found lots of people with FW problems in these forums but none mentioned that strange file corruption I got.
    I'll try FW again after a future system software upgrade but I'm giving up on it for now.

  • Kernel Panic at low battery with MacBook bug found - with solution

    Hello All,
    I think I've found a bug with Leopard concerning laptops. I started a thread which I'll link to below.
    Other people have had this same issue - I've seen it on a few different posts. Does anyone know the best way to contact Apple regarding this? I don't know how active they are in reading this forum, and I want to make sure they know about this, as it's probably something that can be fixed with an OS update.
    To summarize, I'm including a couple of key posts:
    Posted Nov 4th 2007...
    I just got one of the new November 07 MacBooks. The machine is great, and screams with the pre-installed Leopard.
    First thing I did was plug it in to charge as I started configuring software. Once it was fully charged, I pulled the plug, and began using it on battery. My plan was to calibrate the battery, by running it all the way until it forced a sleep, then shutting down and plugging it in again, as Apple recommends.
    Problem is, I never got the "Low Battery" warning, or even the sleep warning. At around 10 minutes of power left, I simply got a kernel panic. A few seconds later, the laptop just switched off.
    I plugged in again for a few minutes, then ran it down again to see if I could reproduce the error, and I did get the low battery warning.
    The next time the battery ran down, it gave me the kernel panic.
    Is this happening to anyone else? Is it a new MacBook problem, or a leopard power management problem? I'm having no other issues at all with the MacBook or Leopard. Any help would be appreciated.
    Nov 12th, 2007...
    Well, It's been a few cycles since the first one, and all is well. I'm getting the low battery warning when it runs low, and no kernel panics (knocking on all available wood). If I start having problems in the future, I'll update this thread, but for now I'm marking it answered. It was probably Leopard not reading the uncalibrated battery correctly.
    Dec, 31st 2007.....
    Hello all,
    Short followup here: I've have 30 successful cycles after the first couple of kernel panics, and it's time to calibrate the battery again. I tried to do it yesterday - charged the battery all the way, used the macbook while plugged in for two hours, unplugged the adapter and continued to use it until I got the low battery warning. I shut down everything and let it sit - waiting for it to go to sleep. Instead, I got a kernel panic, and the computer shut down. It would not restart until I plugged it in, but I know there was some battery left, since it panicked at 2% battery. I let it charge for an hour or so, then used it again until I got the low battery warning. This time, it went down to 0%, but panicked and shut down instead of going to sleep.
    I'm trying this again, after charging all the way last night, and just leaving it on to drain. I'm at 20% right now, and I'll post to let you know what happened.
    Dec 31st, 2007....
    Hello All - I think I've figured this out. Looks like a software bug with Leopard.
    I did get another kernel panic just now at 0%, after the low battery warning. But then I had a revelation. In trying to calibrate the battery, I had set my energy saver settings to never sleep under the battery settings - so I could leave the notebook overnight to drain. I gave it a bit of a charge, then set the battery setting (in energy saver) to sleep after 20 minutes. I restarted, used the computer for a while, got the low battery warning, the computer went down to 0%, then went to sleep as it should.
    I believe that since I had the computer set to "never" go to sleep, Leopard didn't know how to handle it when the battery ran down, and kernel panicked. Perhaps this happens on new MacBooks, because these settings aren't written yet? Regardless, it's obviously an OS level bug here.
    For those having the problem, make sure your battery settings under energy saver are set to allow sleep after a time.

  • Kernel Panic when using Garageband with Blue Snowball USB mic

    *HI ALL,*
    *I purchased Mac Pro recently about 3 weeks ago. I am on the latest updates including the recent firmware update. However whenever I use garageband with external USB mic(Blue Snowball) my Kernel Panics and OS freezes and forces me to Power On again. It happened 20 times so far in few hours.*
    *I opened garageband first time today after bought this external mic from apple store. I did not use garageband without this mic plugged into USB, I only used garageband with MIC plugged in and in couple of minutes to 5 minutes of using garageband the Kernel Panic occurs. Need your help please. Here is the message I get after login again which I reported consistently to Apple. Any immediate help is appreciated. I use iMove, iPhoto and other apps without any problem. Harddisk verification went o.k.*

  • Kernel Panic while backing up with Time Machine - now everything is GONE!

    I got a kernel panic while i tried to back up with Time Machine....when i shut down the computer, and restarted it (with the external still plugged in, and on), it came up with an error message that said
    "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer."
    And my three options were to "Initialize...", "Ignore", or "Eject"...
    I didn't hit either of those buttons, i was trying to contact apple for support only to find out that i am just a week past my minimum 90 day telephone support, so i am trying to scrape up enough to order the APP immediately.
    However, in the meantime, everything on my external harddrive is gone...Disk Utility doesn't even see that there was once a Partition on that drive, and thus, it is not showing up on my desktop, and there is no information to be recovered...everything is gone.
    This is kind of ironic because i was just reading an article about how people are losing their info on their User account after having the Guest Accounts enabled....logged into guest, and back out of guest...
    I am a part of one of those statistics because i do NOT have the Guest account enabled at all...
    Can anybody else help me with this?

    where can i find the panic.log?
    I did a spotlight search with no results.
    I checked /Library/Logs, and didn't see a panic.log
    I also checked ~/Library/Logs and didn't find a panic.log either....i was unable to find anything related to a kernel panic log, or anything.
    Could you point me in the right direction for this please? Could it be that i had a kernal panic, and it did not record the log?
    So what can i do to correct this?
    Disk Warrior didn't detect the drive, and zapping the PRAM didn't correct it either.
    I keep getting the error message i posted previously.
    I even tried to plug the drive into my old 15" PowerBook G4 running 10.4 tiger to see if i could see the drive appear on the desktop, and i also got the same error there as well.
    If i go into Disk Utility, into Partition, i have to create a Partition. There is absolutely nothing on the drive at all. Everything is gone because of a kernal panic - which happened when i was trying to use Time Machine to back up the drive.
    I'm 1/2 afraid to do anything at the moment because i want to figure out what happened to the data i lost on my Time Machine backup drive, and how to get it the same time, i'm afraid of losing all my information on my computer as well since people are having issues with the so called Guest Account issue that wipes everybody's user account's information.
    Is there another scenario for this, could it be not just Guest Accounts deleting a users home folder, but also kernal panics related to Time Machine, which end up erasing your entire Time Machine backup drive too?
    Apple really needs a fix for this and should somehow reward us with something for the unprofessionalism in their own technology.

  • Kernel panic on Mac mini with Airport Extreme 802.11n

    After experiencing frequent kernel panic errors I tested the hard drive with Diskwarrior but no errors and ran Norton AntiVirus but no virus. Finally, I reinstalled the OS. The Mac mini worked fine over night but when I reinstalled the Airport Extreme Software in the morning, I experienced multiple kernel panic errors again. So I assume that the Airport Extreme Software plus the updates are not stable yet. Does anbody know how to fix that problem?
    Markus, Munich

    First, Welcome to the discussions.
    There are several factors that can cause Kernel Panic's
    I would try 2 things for sure.
    Disable or UnInstall Norton. There have been some problems reported, however most have been addressed for the newer versions for 10.4
    Here is a very detailed FAQ that covers most Operating Systems and the reasons for Kernel Panic's
    Sorting out and finding the exact cause can be a little time consuming, take your time and be through.

  • Kernel panic, can't start with install disc or safe mode

    Two days ago my 2008 Mac Pro got a green screen that froze up the entire system. After a few minutes I decided to force power down by holding the power button. Since then I receive a kernel panic every time I boot up in Mac OS.
    I run bootcamp and I'm able to boot up Vista 32 bit okay. After the system went down my video card, NVidia 8800GT, was no longer being loaded in Windows due to and error (43). I tried installing old drivers, new drivers, and today I finally bought a new video card, NVidia GTX 285 Mac. The new card works great in Windows, but I'm still unable to load up Mac OS.
    I've tried resetting the PRAM. I've also tried booting up off of the 10.5 install disc to try a fresh install, but I get kernel panics even when I do that. I connected the Mac to another Mac using target disc mode and using Verify Disk it detected no errors. I used the Apple Hardware Test and again the Mac detected no problems. I've reseated the RAM in the cpu and disconnected all usb and firewire devices. I've called Apple support and they told me to do all of these things I just mentioned. After all of that I even tried erasing the Mac HD partion of the hard drive thinking that it might erase a problematic file or at least let me do an install on a fresh drive (thankfully I made an exteral backup of all my Mac files when I had it in target disk mode). I'm at a loss of what else to try other than taking it into a mechanic. Has anyone experienced this before or have any ideas?

    Your OS X system sounds hosed. However, getting a kernel panic trying to start from an installer disc is usually a good sign of hardware failure. If you aren't using the original installer disc that came with the computer, then that could be a problem - wrong version for the machine. Or the installer disc itself is defective.
    If your Boot Camp partition is on a different drive, then I'd suspect the hard drive but you believe it's OK. This could be a problem with RAM. However, I would look for another suitable installer disc you can try that boots the same version of OS X that was installed originally on your machine.

  • 13" vs 15" MacBook Pro comparison with premiere, final cut and vmware usage

    I'm looking to get back into Macs after a long time away (SGI then PC).
    I'd really prefer a top spec 13" MacBook Pro (rather than the 15) so long as it does what i want, i'm swapping a vaio for it so i'm used to a certain size.
    I would be making use of various graphics apps - photoshop, premiere, after effects, modo, final cut as well as needing to run visual studio 2008 and having a complete PC development environment set up.
    I know i can boot camp so that's always possibility although i would like to run vmware fusion ideally.
    I'm not too fussed about the screen size because i run 2x 24" off my main machine for proper editing/development and if i do use the laptop for development i'd be plugged into a larger monitor on location somewhere.
    My questions are how will the 9400M graphics card react to the above software? I don't play games so that's not an issue. Most 2D graphics software isn't that reliant on heavy 3D processing (except perhaps modo) but perhaps for the mac side of things that's not as true these days?
    Is there anywhere where someone has benchmarked real applications on the 9600 vs 9400?
    any advice or pointers would be very welcome!

    I've been using my new 13" MBP for about a week now. I've been using Parallels to run XP/Vista/Windows 7 betas and occassionally Server 2003/8 on my MacPro for a couple of years and wanted a similar portable environment. I'm a .NET developer so I use VS2005/8, SQL Server 2005/8 and IIS for testing mostly C# code and database driven ASP.Net web applications.
    I was sceptical about all of the above being achievable on this tiny machine (it replaces a much-loved Powerbook G4 and a one year old 15" Acer Aspire, which looks like a breezeblock in comparison) and was initially bracing myself to take the hit of the 2.6Ghz 15" machine with 256MB dedicated graphics. But the people at the Apple suggested I give the smaller, cheaper machine a fourteen day trial and so here I am building a Silverlight site with SQL server backend in Vista. It runs just fine and the sheer portability of this 13" machine along with its cheeky, pint-sized charm means that I'm sticking with it thanks very much
    I may yet use bootcamp and run XP/Vista natively to squeeze out some performance gains, but this would be more due to geekish tendencies on my part than genuine need for a faster os.
    I urge you to try the 13incher - you won't regret it!

  • Display Questions with Retina and VMware Fusion (Windows 7/8)

    Looking to buy my first MacBook Pro and looking to make sure I get the specs I need and have a couple of questions.
    I would like to be able to run (simultaenously)
    During the day for work:
    Windows 7 x64 - 30GB HD - 1 Core - 1GB Ram - Purpose: Has a VPN client that allows me to VPN and RDP only
    Windows 8.1 x64 - 60GB HD - 2 Cores - 4GB+ Ram - Purpose: Office 2013 installed on this VM and all my other work applicatons (light weight)
    OSX 10.10 - Whatever it can take - Light Web Browsing etc while at work.
    After work:
    Guess it doesn't matter really - i'd like to play games (bootcamp fine) if possible too. Nothing crazy so barely worth mentioning.
    My main questions:
    Display: Iris Pro or nVidia - Can the base 15 inch GPU/CPU handle the two VMs at the same time plus the host OS (OSX) without hiccups?
    Display: How does VMware Fusion recognize the discrete GPU - will the system be smooth/quiet without activating it?
    Battery life: Virtualization is pretty heavy battery wise. Does anyone know what happens to the battery when you're running a couple VMs?
    Display: How is running Windows 7/8 on a MacBook with a specifically retina display? Do the Windows PCs look really ugly/blurry due to such a high resolution?
    What is the minimum hardware required for these VMs to run fast and responsive? (CPU/GPU/RAM only)

    Sorry - we're users here, just like you, and some questions just get lost sometimes.
    The fastest hardware you can buy, the easier you'll be able to run Windows. If you use Boot Camp to run Windows (7, 8 or 8.1) the machine will run at it's best. If you want to run Windows alongside the Mac OS, you'll need to use a VM application (I use Parallels - I've tried VMwareFusion but like Parallels better and it just works best for me).
    So, to your questions:
    The Retina machine with the NVIDIA GPU will be the fastest - it's a faster processor and has more VRAM.
    Any VM is going to use resources - how much RAM, for example, is up to you. I have 16 GB of RAM and 8GB dedicated to Parallels/Windows 7 Pro.
    I wouldn't (and you really can't) run a VM for very long on battery. If you're using VM's, that's the time to plug into mains. Running a 'couple' of VM would put further heavy use on your GPU, CPU and shorten your battery life.
    I would make sure to get a good, fast quad-core i7 processor, the 2GB of VRAM NVIDIA GPU and the maximum amount of RAM (16GB).
    Good luck,

  • Problem With Running Fallout 3 on VMWARE FUSION (Running through XP)

    I installed Fallout 3 on XP. Everything went fine until I run the game, and then once I began to start the game a window pops out saying something about the app has to end and then the game is over. Each time I reload the program the same thing happens. Any body have any clue what is wrong with it?

    Since Fusion is not an Apple product, you should post your question on the VMWare Fusion forums, as Apple forums only provide support for Apple products:

  • Bootcamp with win7 and vmware fusion...togheter

    Is it possible?
    I need a partition with bootcamp installed and also a virtual win7 in order to not reboot everytime i need to use windows.
    Sorry for my english.
    Thank U.

    Of course. Also, VMware Fusion allows you to virtualize your Boot Camp partition, so you don't have to install Windows 7 twice.
    Your computer only supports 64-bit Windows 7 and 8 versions, so install Windows 7 by following Apple's steps > You should download the Windows support software from Boot Camp Assistant or from the Apple site, so you can install it after finishing the Windows installation.
    Then, start up in OS X (hold the Alt key while your computer is starting, and choose Macintosh HD), open VMware Fusion and the Boot Camp partition will appear. Start it up and you will be able to use OS X and Windows at the same time

  • Are there any issues with MacPros+Dual Displays and FCP?

    I have a MacPro (2.1) with an ATI X1900XT graphics card (2 DVI ports). It is currently hooked up to a single 24". My usage is mostly Browsing, Final Cut Suite and Video. I am planning on upgrading to Dual Displays (2*24" or 2*27") but read about some vague issues the ATI might have when using dual displays and FCP (Color more specifically). Are there any specific issues I should be aware of before getting a second display?
    Many thanks in advance

    One graphics card? Two displays? ZERO ISSUES! Not sure what "vague issue the ATI" cards have, but I have that exact card, and run two 24" displays with no problems. I have run dual displays for years. I find working with one very...cramped.

  • Issues with Adobe CC 2014 and Suitcase Fusion 5 New Release

    I have recently downloaded Adobe CC2014 and am having issues. I have done an uninstall and clean re-install of the latest version of Fusion 5 and still have the same errors/issues. I also did a clean uninstall and reinstall of my CC2014 applications but the issues persist.
    They are as follows:
    In Photoshop CC2014: The Extensis Plug-in could not locate a running copy of the FMCore application. Auto-activation plug-in functionality will be disabled.
    Auto-Activation not working in InDesign CC 2014
    Auto-Activation not working in Illustrator CC 2014
    I'm running a new MacPro
    Processor 3.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5
    Memory 12 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 ECC
    Graphics AMD FirePro D300 2048 MB
    Software OS X 10.9.4 (13E28)
    Everything worked perfectly until I installed CC2014.

    You really aren't reading what we write.
    Let's break it down:
    Suitcase isn't working with the new application versions, because Suitcase has bugs in it's code or just doesn't know about the new application versions.
    The only way to fix that is to fix the code for Suitcase.
    Suitcase is written by Extensis, so only Extensis can fix the code for Suitcase.
    So you are waiting on Extensis to fix their code to work correctly with the new applications.
    This is not about the CC 2014 applications, this is about Extensis code not working, and Extensis needing to provide an update to make their code work.
    To get a working version of Suitcase (which requires fixing bugs in Suitcase), you need to talk to Extensis.
