Xenclient 2.1 on iMac and AHCI Issue on Install

Hi Everyone,

I am installing a Xenclient 2.1 on a iMac 2011 i think it is

I am having a small problem that i know is just my lack of Apple Hardware knowledge

When Xenclient installs on a Mac or a PC it wants to see AHCI not SATA just to get through the install stage

On a PC its easy and successfully done it but on a Mac i am lost, tried to good but cant find anything directly.

Please help

Adam

Xenclient 2.1 is very likely to pre-date OSX patches you are running by couple of years and will never run on your
computer.

AHCI is standartized SATA controller btw

If you want just desktop virtualisation you can use free oracle virtualbox. for all other xen purposes XEN client is xen desktop player.

Hi

Thanks for all of this.

I am looking for a Type 1 Hyper-visor, in research and i stand corrected the Type 2 HV are just a bit more clunker

Would that be right

I can look at the Latest Version of the Xenclient but i see there is a Price on it with a Min of 5

This is what i am hoping to run

So XenClient is a plain miss as a Type 2 hypervisor.

Missed your comment. XenClient is a type 2 hypervisor just like vmware fusion or virtualbox.
Type 1 hypervisor would be one to replace your OSX like vmware ESXi or XenServer.
