  • Hi , Can i know what boot loader used in this disk ? and if it’s not clover will be any problems if i installed clover ?

  • Hi, good work. It runs in my VMware Fusion on Mac OSX on MBP Retina 2012.
    I want to use the Virtual OSX Machine as a “sandbox” via Snapshots and reset.

    Currently I am suffering from getting a Video Controller in the Virtual machine with a resolution other than 1024×768.
    Any Trick, e.g. in the .vmx file or so?

    Also a regular update did not recognize a different Video Controller.

    The same VMware Fusion on Mac OSX serves e.g. Virtual Windows Guest … Video Resolution is the same like in the Host.

    thanks for helping

Get’s stuck about half way Apple Logo black background. I have my vmx file adjusted per some of the suggestions such smc.version = “0” Do you have any suggestions as to what the issue maybe?

  • I had followed every step. But it stuck at half boot. Any Help?

  • Hi. I’ve followed every instruction on here. And i’m seeing “The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine”. Any idea on how this can be fixed?
