The MacBook Pro with Retina display is only compatible with OS X Lion, if you bought the computer before the OS X Mountain Lion release, and Mountain Lion, so you can't use Tiger. Older OS X versions haven't got compatibility with the hardware of this computer. Apart from that, you can't run it from a virtual machine, because only Mac OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion and Lion are compatible

Why do you want to run Tiger?

During a free trial period, I did get VMWare Fusion 2.0 to run Tiger on my 2011 Mac Mini with Lion...
Wish I had kept a screenshot!

It may be possible, but I think VMware Fusion has dropped Tiger support in its latest Fusion editions

Yes, I was unable to get Tiger to run in VMWare Fusion 4.x, as is suggested by a German blog poster. I contacted him directly and he told me that he had actually installed Tiger successfully in Fusion 2.0 and I was able to duplicate his success.

He seems to have password protected his blogposts, so now his information is locked away from the public:

Since you are "in response to mende1" I will be interested in how mende1 answers your question...
My short answer is YES!
I was able to run Intel Tiger in VMWare Fusion 2.0 successfully on my 2009 MacBook Pro in Lion and I assume that the same could be achieved on a more modern MBP Retina.
The "long" details are:
The difficulty is that it is not an exercise for the faint of heart!
VMWare will not assist you in this project.
You have to obtain a copy of Fusion 2.0; not Fusion 4.x
Fusion 2.0, which ran on Lion on my MBP, may not run in Mt. Lion.
You have to contact the German blogger to have him open his blog to you, or otherwise give you his information, as I do not recall the steps it took to make it work. I have his email somewhere, if you are interested...
Kinda sorry now that I trashed the VM Tiger file, but since my trial period expired, I wanted to free up the disc space. It was fun to see the Tiger background again! I should have at least kept a screenshot!
