Well, I was finally able to restore access by simply installing realvnc 4.6.3 on the vmware install of osx i had, and then copying those files over to the real hard drive replacing the install of vnc i had on there. I believe the files were in library/vnc or something like that.

Thanks for all the suggestion guys. :)

So you did basically the same thing but with vnc. Glad you got it worked. I still recommend ARD as it is smoking fast compared to vnc.

so i have a similar problem. My macbook is no longer with me, but i have a dd image i took a while back. I was able to mount it and get some files off, but i'd like to boot it into a vm. for some reason vm says its not bootable (i used liveview to make the vmdk's). Anyone know how I could boot the dd image of my drive into a vm? I can do it with other OS's, just not OSX.Thx
