Hello, is there some methods to make it work correctly on 1280*1024 display resolution? Thanks in advance!

I have gotten it to work 😀
But when i restart the vm the bootloader dosent seem to butt in if you know what i mean… and it boots to an apple logo and causes the cpu to be in a “shutdown state”
any ideas? i could always just do the process again and suspend next time but i’d rather not have to do that…


Great tutorial!! Everything went fine for me up until I attempted launching the VM, the hackintosh screen would load up about halfway and then it would just stop, I do have an older computer so that’s most likely the culprit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hey! Try (taken from the tutorial)
/amd32 – this one boots a 64x kernel dont be fooled
/amdfx – this works with non fx processors too!

Hope i could help 🙂
Enjoy 😛


I cant get a ethernet connection. can you help ?


Doesnt boot. i got stuck at the hackintosh zone bootscreen. “Debugger not configured. Hanging.”


Side note: i was only able to boot with non EFI BIOS.


Does this Work on AMD Procesor, because i did all the steps and i got stuck on the apple screen with no error.


Great guide! Just wondering how to get the network to work, when I try visit network preferences in the VM and click the + icon, I get an error saying that there’s an error in the network preferences. I have VMware tools installed and have changed the system to “other x64”. Help would be much appreciated. Thanks!


Same thing here, did you manage to get it to work?


I solved network issue. Manually edit .vmx configuration file of your virtual machine and change the line ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000e” in ethernet0.virtualDev = “e1000”

I followed the instructions and I get to the setup part… I select United States and U.S. I select DHCP and it immediately takes me back to the screen to select United States again. Any ideas?

Thomas Swan

it finshes booting however, just boots up to a login screen, with no options to install, any idea?
