run tiger (mac os x 10.4.1) in vmware or virtualbox

I found this article and found it useful, so write it down before I forget.

The guide above is very simple , use p2p to download the vmware image , extract it and launch with vmware , then you will get a running tiger (mac os x 10.4.1). But I try it with vmware player 3.0, the performance is very bad. And also the network card is not working.

Then after google around , I found that virtualbox had better support , so I try it with Virtualbox 3.1.4 Open source edition, the performance much more better and consider usable. Without much more modification , I can start browsing. One trick is you have to press F8 during boot menu and enter : platform=x86pc , otherwise the boot process will hang at acpi detection.

Now have another problem is wanted to update it from version 10.4.1 to 10.4.11 seem no possible , because tiger support intel chip only start from 10.4.4 , so officially there is no updater which can update from 10.4.1 to 10.4.11. Still looking around , hope can find the solution.

The following is the URL to download the update tool from apple.
