In a previous question, it was asked if Snow Leopard Server is supported in Parallels 8, and from Parallels documentation, it would appear that it is.

I am trying to stand up a Snow Leopard Server VM on my Parallels instance, but to no avail. I get a window each time saying, simply, Mac OS X can not be installed on this computer.

Has anyone here had success installing SL Server? If so, did you also encounter this error? And, if you saw this error, how did you overcome it?

  • Are you using a retail copy of SL server or one that came with a Mac? – tubedogg Aug 31 '13 at 16:22
  • Is there a way to tell from the disk itself? – Dave Aug 31 '13 at 16:57
  • The restore disk is generally gray while the retail disk should look like this. – tubedogg Aug 31 '13 at 17:07
  • OK, I have the retail disk like the one in the linked photo. – Dave Sep 3 '13 at 15:07
  • If I have the retail disk, shouldn't I be able to stand up a SLS VM? – Dave Sep 24 '13 at 13:36
