I am installing mac os 10.7 in vmware 9.0. I have to register user account many times: welcome screen -> register information screen -> create computer account screen, after press create button, it shows back wellcome screen, and so on ... How to bypass this step ?

First of all, I don't think it's legal since you're installing it on a non-Apple hardware. Unless you're running your copy of VMWare on BootCamp.

Anyway, the solution is quite simple, boot into Safe Mode with -x kernel argument in your boot loader.

Could you maybe elaborate on how to achieve that solution? Maybe a step by step on how to pass an argument to the boot loader? – Saaru Lindestøkke Feb 2 '13 at 14:12
Could you explain more detail ? – Mau Vu Huu Feb 2 '13 at 14:24
@MauVuHuu What are you using to install OS X? – Shane Hsu Feb 2 '13 at 14:34
@Shane Hsu I am installing osx in vwmare 9.0, host os is windows 7 – Mau Vu Huu Feb 2 '13 at 14:47
@MauVuHuu I actually mean the disk image you use to install it. What's your install disk? – Shane Hsu Feb 2 '13 at 14:51
