i am running windows 10 on HP DV Series when i play virtual machine i got following error “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” any suggestions for me ?

Worked perfect on my 2017 Envy. However you should remove the step for creating a HDD. Just change that to the 2nd option to choose the VMWARE image that you download. There is no point in wasting 20 mins to create a blank HDD file that you aren’t going to use.

Very good tutorial overall though. Very good job!

Hello

When I click on customize hardware, the Hard Disk is not listed. Also, when I click on Add, Hard Disk is not listed there either. Any ideas?

I don’t have to create the HDD. You aren’t going to use it anyways. Its a dumb step.
Instead of creating the drive, just choose the 2nd option that you already have a configured drive.
Once you do. you can simply pick the VM drive image that you downloaded.
Just don’t forget the step where you have to edit the VMX file.

It works fine for me but except two things. The system will not load after the system update. It doesn’t connect my USB3 hard disk. It’ no point if I change to USB2 connection for my USB3 hard disk.

Any tips on how to patch this to 10.12.2? Whenever I patch, I get an error that an unexpected firmware exception occurs after rebooting.

Worked well on HP ProBook 450 g2 (Broadcom 802.11ac upgrade, M.2 SSD installed/upgrade) running Windows 10 with 4GB allocated to VM.

Everything work fine for me except display resolution. The resolution is so high (2736×1824) that everything (menus, icons, etc.) are so tiny. I tried several other resolutions but it just resizes the display rather than making menus, icons, etc. larger or smaller.I am using VMware on Surface Pro 4, i5, 8GB, 256GB.

Hi there, the VM works great on my T450! but, bluetooth is not working on the VM even though VMmware seems to be sharing the device. What I found is that no bluetooth option is being shown on Mac’s System Preferences. is Like the bluetooth drivers are missing on the VM. Any thoughts?
