How to Install Mac OS X El Capitan on VMware on PC

Written by Techsviewer

It is now possible and remarkably easy to use OS X El Capitan on VMware following Apple’s live changing move geared towards improving its OS X software for desktop operating system. Mac OS El Captain was publicly launched on Wednesday the 30th of September last year. This tutorial provides a clear and systematic guideline with respect to downloading and installing Mac OS X El Capitan on a PC.

Though it is hectic, complicated and tiresome to install MAC OS X on non- Apple hardware, this guide book provides an easy way out. The foremost thing is to have a VMware Player which is free. Alternatively, VMware Workstation which is paid for may work equally well. However, it is better to user VMware Player.

Understanding What VMware is?

Fundamentally, VMware is a program which allows the user to install and run OS X that is Intel-based as well as one with AMD processor. This convenience makes VMware Player the most appropriate program to use for this purpose.

Updates

On VMware player as well as workstation, one can conveniently upgrade the existing El Capitan on simulated machine available on Windows on PC. Moreover, windows 10 can host the most recent El Capitan 10.11.4 with the help of VMware player and workstation.

For Application developers, using OS X El Capitan on VMware offers an added advantage. One can acquire skills on Xcode and use the new features supported by Mac OS X El Capitan and most importantly installing Applications on OS X El Capitan on VMware without necessarily having to install it.

Running the OS X El Capitan on VMware on PC maybe somewhat hectic and may probably take a toll on one’s additional energy . Nevertheless, the benefits associated with this bold and sophisticated move towards effectiveness and convenience is never disappointing. It works meticulously once it is done.

Hi, I have this error: “A fault has occurred causing a virtual CPU to enter the shutdown state. If this fault had occurred outside of a virtual machine, it would have caused the physical machine to restart. The shutdown state can be reached by incorrectly configuring the virtual machine, a bug in the guest operating system, or a problem in VMware Workstation.”, How I could resolve if i have AMD Opteron 6344 Processor? Thanks.

I manage to successfully installed the mac-osx el capitan. My question is, is it possible to use any hardware in my laptop to connect to a vmware mac-osx, like bluetooth for example? I was thinking that if I connect the internal bluetooth of my laptop to a vmware macosx would caused an issue to drivers because it is not compatible.
