So how do you bump up the cores and ram used? I am looking to put 8 cores and 30gb of ram towards the virtual machine.

Wow! I was actually waiting for several hours and ended up letting it run overnight but it turns out the CPUID just didnt work. I used the one posted by Paula and it starts up just fine in just a few minutes 😛

This always happens with Yosemite for me, it takes around 3-4 hours to actually work.

Is it possible to make this work with VirtualBox 5? I think I’d need to change the commands done in CMD.

Can confirm it works on the latest v5.

Any ideas anyone?

By the way, I had to change chipset to PIIX3 to make it work under Ubuntu

Andrés

how Step 4 should be modified to work under Linux?

Paula

Hi! Thanks for the tutorial, but I want to suggest a change: for me it didn’t work using the cpuidset code you used, but this one – 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff

So if someone is getting stuck try to create another vm and change this code I’ve mentioned.

Cheers!

Nvm my first comment, I got the vdmk loaded but got lots of errors when the VM started to run.

Luis

Nothing happens after installation. VMware does pop up initially. It’s just a plain black window.

Moisés
Guest

Same to me, you must change chipset to PIIX3 and it works like a charm!
