  1. (Posting this in the Sierra forum, as there doesn't appear to be a High Sierra forum quite yet.) Hey yall! I managed to get macOS 10.13 High Sierra running as a guest VM with VMware Fusion 10 on macOS 13.13 High Sierra host, without too much trouble. Here's my VMX for macOS hosts: https://gist.github.com/mcandre/48f90963d9a24315024319cd62142f6a However, I would like to be able to use High Sierra from Windows 10 hosts (e.g. Boot Camp'ed on Apple hardware). I'm following a dozen online tutorials for this, and can work around most glitches like ensuring that smc.version = "0" and patching VMware with the unlocker, and ensuring that the drive interfaces are SATA. However, I am not able to boot up the full macOS SetupAssistant installer. From a Windows host, I just get boot looping between the Apple logo and the VMware logo. Any tips for fixing this?

  2. Yo! I'm trying to install High Sierra in VMware Fusion for a command line driven Vagrant box, in order to make it easier to compile applications for macOS. I actually managed to automate macOS installation entirely with PC-compatible keyboard input in packer! Unfortunately, the boot after SetupAssistant always fails: Trace Installing: About 15 minutes remaining ... Installing on "Macintosh HD" ... An error occurred installing macOS. To use Apple Diagnostics to check your Mac hardware, shut down, press the power button, and immediately hold the 'D' key until diagnostics begins. Quit the installer to restart your computer and try again.

Re-running the packer VM build. Tweaking VMX settings. Disabling SMC (which results in a VM that never finishes booting). Increasing virtual RAM to 4GB. Specifying the virtual hard drive as a solid state drive. Using VirtualBox (unfortunately, packer sends the wrong scancodes to VirtualBox for macOS guests, so packer + macOS guests + VirtualBox doesn't integrate very well at the moment). Pressing 'D' during boot (no change in behavior, no diagnostics displayed). I'm new to hackintoshing, so I'm not sure if I'm missing some critical VMX configuration, or perhaps if High Sierra introduces further complications compared to earlier editions of macOS. Or even if an alternative EFI bootloader (Clover?) is necessary, I just don't know. I'd prefer to install macOS with as vanilla/default a configuration as possible. If anyone else has experience getting macOS to boot in VMware, let me know how the VMX configuration can be improved, or if some kind of SMC toggling intervention is necessary to get the thing to boot better. I've already tossed so many hacks and workarounds into the mix that I'm starting to run out of ideas Also posting this to InsanelyMac and Reddit just in case someone there can help, too!
  3. Lets VmWare new macOS Sierra(DP) At WWDC macOS Sierra, the next-generation Mac operating system was unveiled. Apple removed X name in favor of the new “macOS” name to bring the Mac operating system in line with iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. The new feature are in macOS Sierra is Siri integration. Siri offers almost same capabilities available on iOS, along with Mac-specific functionality like the ability to search through documents to quickly find files.There’s also a universal clipboard. It will keep everything you copy consistent across all platforms, so you can copy a link on your phone, and paste it onto your laptop. If it works seamlessly, this could be huge update .Next up is iCloud Drive. It will sync across your iPhone, iPad and Macbook, letting you share desktops across all devices. Anyway, Lets try the new macOS in VM before install/update on Exciting Systems. N.B. For new macOS 10.12 still in DP or Beta, so to make iso you need edit First line for XXX.tool.Change the line below to osx version u have .. eg: /Install\ 10.12\ Developer\ Preview.app CSerria.tool First line: # Mount the Installer image hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ 10.12\ Developer\ Preview.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg -noverify -nobrowse -mountpoint /Volumes/install_app Installation for 10.12: The Creating VM section at stage 3 (choosing "Apple Mac OS ") chose version 10.11.On might ask why is that ?..cause VmWare unlocker dont have 10.12 and Its works to install 10.12. "We have to wait for donk to update unlocker" 2nd change virtualHW.version = " 12" to "11" or "10" Issue: After install Vmware tools .. shout down does not work and i dont know why. Let me know what you guys think of it and dont copy the Serial number below
  4. Hello OSx86.net community. I am new to this and I just started using Yosemite OS X 10.8 successfully on my new gaming computer and I am currently in the process of upgrading to El Capitan. It seems as if I was not aware of which hard drive I could have chosen to install Yosemite to run a lot more efficiently and I am curious if the computer specs that I list here will do me any good to figure out if I should make a new virtual machine to boost my performance with my 750gb 3.0 WD Elements hard drive in comparison to the I am using at the moment (1tb Free Agent GOFlex Seagate 3.0) drive. It seems as though things should be running much faster than they are at the moment.

  8. Hey Everyone, ? I'm not a Mac user AT ALL, but my brother has asked me to find a way for him to run some Mac only applications on his PC laptop.? ? I made a VM running Mavericks in VMWare Workstation 10, and it's up and running well. However, the main app that the VM was created to run requires hardware acceleration, and I can't get the program to go beyond the splash screen without it.? ? The program is Final Cut Pro, and the machine the VM is running on is an Acer Aspire something with an Intel processor. Not sure of the processor's exact specs at the moment, but I know it's quad core and 2.4 GHz ? Does anyone have any idea whether or not it's possible to enable hardware acceleration on a VM, and if so, how to do it?
  9. I'm using Rc7 10.9 kernel on my AMD FX-4100. ? My question is how AMD kernel handle virtual machines? ? OS X virtual machine applications i.e Parallels or VMware are designed to use Intel virtual machine commands VT-x. However, AMD comes with a different virtualization technology, AMD-V. ? Should above applications still work on AMD hackintosh? Has anyone tried any virtual machines on AMD hackintosh?

  11. Hello, i'm joatoche. I just signed up at the forum. I'm making this thread becouse I want to know if there is any successful virtualization of Mavericks under AMD (see model on signature)? ? If it is indeed possible, could you give me a link to a guide? I've tried multiple times but I get a lot of Kernel panics and I keep wasting CD's. ? Still, I think it's my problem. What boot flags could I use? I installed a custom Phenom kernel onto the InstallESD.iso file before burning, so that's the default kernel know, but for some reason the bootloaders keep using the kernel they came with. ? Any ideas? ? -joatoche (Joaquin Montero)

  13. I am currently trying to get internet access on my Mac OS X 10.6 virtual machine. I am running Windows 8 as the host OS and using VmWare Workstation 10. I have created the VM using an ISO image of Mac OS X 10.6 and have the whole operating system up and running well. However, whenever I try to connect to the internet I don't have a connection. I have tried using the "bridged" option for the Network adapter of the host OS (Windows 8) but I am having no luck. I have also tried the other options and none of them are working.The only option I am getting is the Telephone Modem which is no use. I'm not dual-booting, I'm just using a virtual machine, which as I mentioned above works apart from the internet. Can anyone help? Help is very much appreciated Thanks.
  14. Guys,I've installed Snow Leopard (Hazard) in Vmware. And I've downloaded the combo update 10.6.8 from apples site. When I start installing the combo it verifies at first and popup an error that the archive is corrupted and only shows a somewhat 373MB file in the archive but when I skip it,It installed correctly without any error. I replaced the kernel with legacy kernel from osx86.net . Then I reboot it. As usual it shows a kernel panic at reboot. But when I boot up the OS again it shows the version 10.6. What's the problem?
  15. Ok, I am looking to either run Mac OS X within Windows 7/8 on a seperate monitor, or to dual-boot this PC with Windows 7/8 and Mac OS X. I am satisfied with any version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard or newer. I am able to acquire different hardware for incompatibilities, but not for difficulties. I am aiming to have two monitors with seperate keyboard, mouse, and speakers. One monitor will display Windows and the other OS X. I imagine this would be done with VMWare or other comparable software, but am uncertain. If this is impossible, or functionality would be considerably restricted I would be satisfied with a dual-boot setup. I am very computer literate, and would say that I am very familiar with the darker grey areas of software legalities and copyright infringements. I am definately not a noob, for lack of better words. The reward for counseling, not babysitting or hand holding, is 50-75 U.S. Dollars. These dollars will be distributed using the Paypal service, and will be issued immediatly after successful boot of OS X on my system.
  16. So I encountered a problem considering kakewalk installation on a thumb drive. But first things first:I own a Gigabyte motherboard: Z68X-UD3H-B3 wich is compatible with kakewalk, I have a NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT graphics card wich is also compatible according to the system requirements on kakewalk's site. Since I don't have a mac, neither do I know someone with one, I am not able to install it on the thumb drive soi hope someone can help me out: I tried running mac osx lion in vmware and running kakewalk. Every single time, I encountered the same problem: When I start the program, it keeps on doing the installation part, saying: preparing your thumb drive, this might take a while so grab a cup of coffee... I don't know what I am doing wrong, is there another possibility to hackintosh with kakewalk without a mac? (or explain me how I need to do it in VMWare) thank you in advance
  17. Bear with me, it's my first thread. I'm quite new to all of this, just started yesterday. I have a Hackintosh OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 Build 10K549 installed through VMware player. I've given the virtual computer 2GB of RAM and I've connected and enabled my Realtek HD audio ALC888 sound card through the VM to the Mac. I've gone through about 10 different versions of kexts, each supporting different OS versions, each a bit different etc. None of them have worked. I've used Kext Utility, Kext Helper and via Terminal, but although it seems to be OK, after rebooting the sound icon does not appear and the system doesn't recognise any outputs. I've also tried it all on Lion but the same thing happened. 1. Could the VM be preventing communication between the sound card and the Mac? 2. Could have I incorrectly installed the kexts/are they all incompatible with the card? 3. Does there need to be a special kext for VMware's virtual sound card if VM does virtualize it? I don't need HD Audio, any stereo will do Thanks in advance
  18. I have to Mac OSX Mointain Lion dmg and installed it on a VHD from my lion VM, when I boot that vm with mountain lion on it, the screen just goes white and never boots. Any help or totorials on how to install Mac OSX Mointain Lion on VMware 8 ?? Thanks
  19. Hi guys, I'm trying to change the "hardware uuid" value ie IOPlatformUUID. I have managed to get a look at it in IORegistryExplorer but seem to be unable to modify the value, and cannot find which kext info.plist file it might be in (if that's even what I should be looking in). Note this is not a hackintosh, but I figured someone will have an idea on how this can be done. Sorry if this is in the wrong section - first post. Thanks guys.
  20. I have Vmworkstation with a Snow Leopard 10.6.4 image. Now i want to install the new software 10.6.8. I have heard that i first have to install something on 10.6.4. Could someone help me ?
