Great tutorial,

Working great even using sierra bootloader but….
After the last update I lost the bootloader. For me it’s like the EFI partition lost his name and right now I’m not able to load using bootloader :(. I try to install but doesn’t work

Thanks,

I get an error when I go to play it. Says “Mac OS X is not supported with binary translation. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Player supports Intel VT-x or AMD-V.”

I need help to fix the camera. I already clicked “Connect (Disconnect from Host)” and light indicator on my built-in cam is on but no video.

“FaceTime has not received any video from the connected camera. Restarting your computer may fix this issue.”

Thanks for the tutorial! Everything seems to be working, except for USB devices. I have already changed the compatibility from 3.0 to 2.0, but it still does not work. Do you have a fix for this?
