  • Hello,

    I’m stuck at the edit the VMX file bit. When I go there, a VMX file doesn’t exist. I see VMXF, VMSD, VMDK, vmx.lck….but that’s it. Is this a PICNIC, or is it because I’m using the free version of VMware WS? I can provide screenshots upon request. Thank you.

  • it comes up with letters while on the apple logo and reboots everytime help? i have done the right process over 10 times and still not work i use the right guest and OS but it still does it

  • when i load into the VM, i see the apple logo as it loads it comes up with a bunch off letters and reboots everytime in a constant loop?? i done everything no matter what i do it keeps happening.

  • This has worked flawlessly for me for a year, so thanks! I have a very stable development environment set up, but now I am being prompted to upgrade to Mac OS High Sierra inside the VM, in order to update XCode. Do you know if this is “safe” to do so? I am loathe to start “from scratch” with a new VM for High Sierra, would prefer to use the updater inside the VM, but not if it makes the VM unusable, of course 🙂

  • I keep getting cpu disabled on start up. I have windows 7 and My CPU is an AMD fx8320 and enabled virtualization in VMware and bios. Still doesn’t work if I turn them off. I’ve tried to mask my cpuid by adding lines in the vmx but that doesn’t work either. I’ve set my processor cores to 1. I’ve spent 8 hours trying to tackle this problem. I tested it on my windows 7 Intel i3 laptop and it boots fine. From what I’ve read I may need to replace the kernel in the os but I don’t have access to a Mac to do this then download. Do you have a version with an AMD kernel added?
