Also, I'd try to again after selecting the option to remember to use Windows for this option as default.
I'm going to forward a link of this thread to one of my mentors who I just recalled works with a dual boot system; it's not a Mac but Ubuntu and Windows. Maybe he'll have an idea?

I've actually tried connecting the device without the battery in the phone and it still didn't show the COM in Odin. I haven't seen the the power draw with the new blackberry cable I received.
I've also tried selecting the checkbox to connect to windows automatically without asking me. That didn't work as well. There is also advance USB settings in VMWare Fusion that you can select to choose to have the USB to connect to windows automatically. I've also have had that selected as well and that didn't work either.
Remember, I haven't dual booted yet. This has only been tried through the process of a virtual machine which is different than dual boot.
I'm familiar with how to dual boot but the external drive I have seems to have some kind of internal damage according to Disk Warrior. It told me that it had bad sectors internally. I'm not sure if reformatting would actually fix anything due to the damages. I have another external drive that has plenty of space to partition and add windows 7 on and I haven't attempted that quite yet.
