PackageMaker and virtualisation of Mac 10.6 on a 10.8 Mac

Hello all,

 

I have previously been using packagemaker on Mac OS 10.6 to deliver solutions.

 

It is simple, effective and despite a lot of people saying it's buggy, it's been working fine for me.

 

Now that 10.8 pretty much forces it's technologies onto us... (grrr) it means that packagemaker no longer works.

 

I have a hard drive that I have to boot my mac up with in order to create packages with packagemaker. Not ideal, plus, I would guess that the next macs to come out won't let 10.6 to boot.

 

I would like to move the whole hard drive onto a virtual environment that allows me to boot 10.6 under 10.8

 

Has anyone done this?

 

Suggestions, recommendations? instructions?

 

Tried it with parallels, I can't do it without server instal software. I have a 10.6 server, but the CD installs on top of the 10.6. You can't do this in parallels. Besides, I want to move my whole hard drive across.

 

I have been looking at virttual box, I can't seem to work out how to get the whole HD across...?
