We obtained a bunch of Gen8 Blades for a client down in Florida and I figured I would create a quick “how to” guide on updating the firmware.
Updating firmware is a process that is usually uneventful besides the butterfly effect in your stomach until you see the final reboot get past the initial BIOS screen (most people will relate to this).This guide is showing how to update Snow Leopard 10.6.2 Intel AMD by Hazard to 10.6.7 latest update on VMware or Virtual Box.I’m not only showing the way of update, but also the few and important points you must consider to install Snow Leopard 10.6.7 Intel AMD by Hazard on Virtual Box and VMware.The good thing is, it works well on Oracle Virtual Box without any third party boot loaders or editing configuration files.But the main issue is, this can’t be updated to latest Mac OS X versions because of its running in hacked kernel which can’t be upgraded.The snapshot feature is most useful when you want to preserve the state of the virtual machine so you can return to the same state repeatedly.
To simply save the current state of your virtual machine, then pick up work later with the virtual machine in the same state it was when you stopped, suspend the virtual machine. You can take a snapshot of a virtual machine at any time and revert to that snapshot at any time.
VMware ESXi (formerly ESX) is an enterprise-class, type-1 hypervisor developed by VMware for deploying and serving virtual computers.
As a type-1 hypervisor, ESXi is not a software application that one installs in an operating system (OS); instead, it includes and integrates vital OS components, such as a kernel.
VMware Workstation Pro documentation describes how to use VMware Workstation Pro to create, configure, and manage virtual machines.
With VMware Workstation Pro, you can run multiple operating systems simultaneously on the same PC, create powerful virtual machines to run the most demanding applications, and create restricted virtual machines that can expire.
ESX/ESXi is the primary component in the VMware Infrastructure software suite.
