Nice tutorial. Worked great and had valid downloads. Make sure to use VMware 12.0 and not the newest. Also do not check auto-updates on install. That is the only problem I found.

It says: Mac OS X us not supported with binary translation.To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Player supports Intel VT-x or AMD

What is this?
If you answer be happy

Thank you!

Thank you. I had successfully run macOS in Win 8.
I got a general question : Does booting and working with macOS Sierra require a powerful graphic card? I want to buy Intel i5 6500 which it is got a intel Hd graphics 530, does it meet the requirements?

I’m experiencing the same. I’ve run multiple instances of OSX in VMWare (incl. Yosemite) & not had lag issues to the same effect – I keep seeing the raster when minimizing/maximising etc. It just seems generally a bit slow, regardless of what I do to amend settings (I should add, I have installed VMWare Tools & Beamoff.

Using a 3.0 port the device shows up as connectable device but does not show up in VM Using a 2.0 port the device shows up as connectable device but as soon as I connect it, it enters a loop from connect > disconnect > connect > disconnect > within seconds.

Guys, thank you for great VM! I do have a small issue, which i can’t figure out.
I’m using Sierra VM to test enrollment in Microsoft Intune. You browse a portal website and install Management Profile. That works on physical machines with no problem, but in VM it just shows spinning wheel Installing and nothing happens. Sits there and i cant even cancel it.
Would you have any idea what can i do or point me in the right direction?
thank you
