After modifying the settings, boot the newly installed FreeBSD virtual machine.
Context English Spanish State
Choose the method to install the virtual machine, either from an <acronym>ISO</acronym> image or from a <acronym>CD</acronym>/<acronym>DVD</acronym>:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd06' md5='__failed__'
Click <guimenuitem>Finish</guimenuitem> and the virtual machine will boot:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd07' md5='__failed__'
Install FreeBSD as usual:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd08' md5='__failed__'
Once the install is complete, the settings of the virtual machine can be modified, such as memory usage:
The System Hardware settings of the virtual machine cannot be modified while the virtual machine is running.
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd09' md5='__failed__'
The number of CPUs the virtual machine will have access to:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd10' md5='__failed__'
The status of the <acronym>CD-ROM</acronym> device. Normally the <acronym>CD</acronym>/<acronym>DVD</acronym>/<acronym>ISO</acronym> is disconnected from the virtual machine when it is no longer needed.
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd11' md5='__failed__'
The last thing to change is how the virtual machine will connect to the network. To allow connections to the virtual machine from other machines besides the host, choose <guimenuitem>Connect directly to the physical network (Bridged)</guimenuitem>. Otherwise, <guimenuitem>Share the host's internet connection (NAT)</guimenuitem> is preferred so that the virtual machine can have access to the Internet, but the network cannot access the virtual machine.

After modifying the settings, boot the newly installed FreeBSD virtual machine.
Configuring FreeBSD on <application>VMware Fusion</application>
After FreeBSD has been successfully installed on <trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> X with <application>VMware Fusion</application>, there are a number of configuration steps that can be taken to optimize the system for virtualized operation.
The most important step is to reduce the <option>kern.hz</option> tunable to reduce the CPU utilization of FreeBSD under the <application>VMware Fusion</application> environment. This is accomplished by adding the following line to <filename>/boot/loader.conf</filename>:
Without this setting, an idle FreeBSD <application>VMware Fusion</application> guest will use roughly 15% of the CPU of a single processor <trademark class="registered">iMac</trademark>. After this change, the usage will be closer to 5%.
All of the FireWire, and USB device drivers can be removed from a custom kernel configuration file. <application>VMware Fusion</application> provides a virtual network adapter used by the <citerefentry><refentrytitle>em</refentrytitle><manvolnum>4</manvolnum></citerefentry> driver, so all network devices except for <citerefentry><refentrytitle>em</refentrytitle><manvolnum>4</manvolnum></citerefentry> can be removed from the kernel.
The most basic networking setup uses DHCP to connect the virtual machine to the same local area network as the host <trademark class="registered">Mac</trademark>. This can be accomplished by adding <literal>ifconfig_em0="DHCP"</literal> to <filename>/etc/rc.conf</filename>. More advanced networking setups are described in <xref linkend="advanced-networking"/>.
FreeBSD as a Guest on <trademark>VirtualBox</trademark>
FreeBSD works well as a guest in <application><trademark>VirtualBox</trademark></application>. The virtualization software is available for most common operating systems, including FreeBSD itself.
The <application><trademark>VirtualBox</trademark></application> guest additions provide support for:
Clipboard sharing.
Mouse pointer integration.
Host time synchronization.
Window scaling.
Seamless mode.
These commands are run in the FreeBSD guest.
