    If anyone wants to install this on hard drive follow this

    It doesn't boot for me, most likely because its not a flashdrive.

    Go down to "Download the VMWare image"
    There will be a tut on the website somewhere if you don't know how to install it

    So i follow the instructions on the web page to install it on a USB stick, plug it in during start up and select boot from USB then it just works or am I missing anything?

    It just shows a flashing line in the corner on my Dell mini 12v. On my MacBook Pro it doesn't even show up on the list of bootable disks (by holding Option at startup)

    On both VMWare and my Toshiba Satellite (can't remember model off the top of my head) it's as laggy as hell
