Hi! I followed the instructions step by step; however, when I run the VM, it loops. It first displays the VMWare logo, then Apple logo, then again VMWare’s. I enabled virtualization and patched my VMWare. I am running it all on Windows 10 on AMD processor. Any thoughts as to why it loops?

I followed all directions but i keep getting this error message. Mac OS X is not supported with binary translation. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Workstation supports Intel VT- or AMD -V. Am I supposed to use bios as opposed to UFEI?


Well, I found the answer for question 2. It works!
However, when I try to use multiple monitors, it says that “This virtual machine cannot use multiple monitors for the following reasons: – Vmware Workstation does not support the multiple monitor feature in macOS 10.12 guests”.
1) does anyone know if multiple monitors are supported for previous versions of OSX.
2) is there any patch/workaround for multiple monitors in Sierra?


only because my first comment didn’t appear: when I said that “I found the answer for question 2. It works!” I was referring to installing OSX Sierra using this tutorial. And yes, it works 🙂
Just to clarify things.
Still hoping someone has an answer for the other two questions, about using multiple monitors. I’m sure that for someone with some technical knowledge of vmware is not that difficult.

I followed the steps and everything seems to work beautifully. My only problem is that keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+c, ctrl+l, ctrl+x dont work inside the vmware. Is there any solution to this?
