I’ve tried EVERYTHING you have said to do in dealing with the error VMWare Virtual SATA Hard Drive (0.0)… unsuccessful EFI VMWare Virtual SATA CDROM Drive (1.0)… unsuccessful Then going to the blue screen to adjust boot order. I’m out of options!


Hi, I have a 4K display and the UI is laggy little bit. Is there any solution for this?
Thanks, S.

Hello my friends, it’s been a pretty epic day.

I’ve been running Sierra 10.12.6 VM & Ubuntu VM in VMware Player version 12.5.6 with no problems. I found VMware Player has a new version 14.0. So I decided to try it.

Do a clean install. Uninstall VMware player V12X manually. Search for any VMware Player temp files or log files & delete. Then install VMware Player version 14.0 Free. There are some new features. Sierra VM & Ubuntu VM are working OK. No bugs or errors……Found yet.

As always, have a nice day!

This worked to perfection! Thank you very much


VMWare Virtual SATA Hard Drive (0.0)… unsuccessful EFI VMWare Virtual SATA CDROM Drive (1.0)… unsuccessful Then it displays the blue Boot Manager screen. I used Google Drive (6 of 6) image. dont know what to do

When I am logging into mac, It showing me a Dark Black screen with nothing!!!!!


it works but it is extreme slow. is there a way to speed it up?


4 cores
6gb ram
128mb vram


Click “Edit Virtual Machine Setting”, select “Hard Disk (SATA) 40 GB” then click “Remove”

This is not a selectable option for me. I’ve tried earlier versions of VMware and reinstalled this three times following your instructions. I don’t know what else to do but that option does not show up when I go to edit the VM.


Got it installed! Thanks so much.
I’m trying to install xcode and it’s asking me to enter and administrator password to “make changes”.

… Is there an admin code I should know about? Sorry if I missed it in the tutorial. I scanned it again and didn’t see anything.
