I get this error message now that I finally got into the operating system:’

The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode because:

– Unity is not supported in this guest operating system

On step 3 I get a message saying “64bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run.” Im on a 64-bit Windows 10 machine. Is there a fix for this?

Hi John,
Running very well and very fast here. Wondering if it’s safe to install updates proposed by the app store.
Thank you

Mac OS X is not supported with binary translation. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Workstation supports Intel VT-x or AMD-V.

I did all the steps but when I power on the system I receive this error massage !

what to do ?

I followed all the directions above and setup went good. But there is one problem I’ve faced with. When I tried to update this version from AppStore to Beta 4 the image downloaded correctly approximately 2.5GB then goes to restart and hang on that point. Could you tell me what am I doing wrong?

I followed all the directions and it keeps bringing me to the boot manager. When I try booting normally, it brings me back to the same stage. I have tried this multiple times and doesn’t work. I also tried your Virtualbox tutorial and that didn’t work either. I have an Intel processor so it’s not because I have an AMD processor. Do you know what my problem might be?
