    • It did not work for me. In my case, I found that the installed Volume was renamed to "--" and the installation script stopped. After that the Volume was damaged and I had to erase it with Disk Utility.   I suspect that the error does not come from the script itself but happened prior to run the script. Some process was messing with the installed Volume.  
    • How Do I Get iCloud Working in Yosemite Zone? Hello! I recently installed Yosemite Zone and iCloud, FaceTime, iMessage, and Google Chrome and none of them work, each saying my computer isn't validated. I have tried many things including the one with EFI Studio and deleting stuff to messing around in Chameleon and none of it seems to work. The App Store and it's sister apps work just fine, though. Does anyone know how to get all this working, as they are things I'd like to use. Specs: AMD Phenom II x4 B55 3.3 GHz 8 GB DDR3 NVidia GeForce GTX 750 MSI 890GXM-G65 Yosemite Zone 10.10.1
    • okay, now the same thing is happening after installation , the same grey icon and black screen with -v bootflag   now what can i do  
    • Yippee!!!!! hahahaha i managed to get to the installer. just downloaded mach_kernel file & replaced it with the one on usb , now installing  hope nothing else goes wrong cross fingers !!!!
    • MacOS and Windows dual boot machine build Hey guys,  hope this is the right place to ask this sort of question. I am dreaming of building a PC with both windows and mac installed, and was wondering what the recommended disk setup for something like that would be.  Windows would be used for gaming, and macOS would be used for mainly everything else, and I would like to be able to switch between the two with ease. What I would like to do is have both os's live on separate SSD drives, and have a shared HD for my other data. Is that reasonable / has somebody built a system like that / could someone point me in the right direction if I wanted to find a build guide? Thanks!

VMWare Unlocker 2.0.2

About This File

Use this tool to make VMWare Completely Support Mac OS X

Mac OS X Unlocker for VMware V2.0

=================================

1. Introduction

---------------

Unlocker 2 is designed for Workstation 11, Player 7 and Fusion 7.

If you are using an earlier product please continue using Unlocker 1

Version 2 has been tested against:

* Workstation 11 on Windows and Linux

* Player 7 on Windows and Linux

* Fusion 7 on Mavericks and Yosemite

* (Currently is does not work on ESXi 6.0)

The patch code carries out the following modifications dependent on the product

being patched:

* Fix vmware-vmx and derivatives to allow Mac OS X to boot

* Fix vmwarebase .dll or .so to allow Apple to be selected during VM creation

* A copy of the latest VMware Tools for OS X is included

Note that not all products recognise the darwin.iso via install tools menu item.

You will have to manually mount the darwin.iso for example on Workstation and Player.

The vmwarebase code does not need to be patched on OS X so you will see a

message on those systems telling you that it will not be patched.

In all cases make sure VMware is not running, and any background guests have

been shutdown.

The code is now Python as it makes the Unlocker easier to run and maintain on ESXi.

There are some challenges to write the code as ESXi has a subset of Python 2.7 which

constrains some modules that can be used.

2. Prerequisites

----------------

The code requires Python 2.7 to work. Most Linux distros and OS X ship with a compatible

Python interpreter and should work without requiring any additional software.

Windows will need a version of Python installed and the code has been tested against:

CPython - https://www.python.org/downloads/

ActiveState Python - http://www.activestate.com/activepython/downloads

IronPython - https://ironpython.codeplex.com/releases/view/169382

The python.exe file must be on the executable PATH. If it is not on PATH please

edit win-install.cmd to point to the installation path.

3. Limitations

--------------

The Unlocker currently does not work on ESXi 6.

The Unlocker does not remove the check for server versions for OS X Leopard and

Snow Leopard (10.5 and 10.6).

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

| IMPORTANT: |

| ========== |

| |

| If you create a new VM using version 11 hardware VMware will stop and |

| create a core dump.There are two options to work around this issue: |

| |

| 1. Change the VM to be HW 10 - this does not affect performance. |

| 2. Edit the VMX file and add: |

| smc.version = 0 |

| |

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Work continues to find solutions to the limitations.

4. Windows

----------

On Windows you will need to either run cmd.exe as Administrator or using

Explorer right click on the command file and select "Run as administrator".

win-install.cmd - patches VMware

win-uninstall.cmd - restores VMware

5. Linux

---------

On Linux you will need to be either root or use sudo to run the scripts.

You may need to ensure the Linux scripts have execute permissions

by running chmod +x against the 2 files.

lnx-install.sh - patches VMware

lnx-uninstall.sh - restores VMware

6. Mac OS X

-----------

On Mac OS X you will need to be either root or use sudo to run the scripts.

This is really only needed if you want to use client versions of Mac OS X.

You may need to ensure the OS X scripts have execute permissions

by running chmod +x against the 2 files.

osx-install.sh - patches VMware

osx-uninstall.sh - restores VMware

Thanks to Zenith432 for originally building the C++ unlocker and Mac Son of Knife for all

the testing and support.
