Installing on Vmware - Never get passed initial apple screen!, Help?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have tried to install Yosemite Zone into VMWARE. I have used the VMware unlocker.

 

I then select the iso i want to use  (yosemite zone) and start the machine. After the VMware sign disappears I am left with the apple symbol. This reaches about 50% of the way across and stops.

 

 

If i do the same in virtualbox, I dont even see that apple symbol, i see the hackingtosh zone sysmbol (red apple) and after a while it gets into the install area. I proceed and eventually I get to the usual 2 minutes "stuck" and then thats it.

 

I would like to use the VMware version if possible, so what is going wrong there? I had to create the config.ini for the virtual machine but only put in the single SMC = 0 line to get past that error

 

Any help would be much appreciated

but the question is the boot loader didnt show up, i mean i powered up my VM, and it just boot to apple logo immediately.

theres no way to input my bootflag ?

Well I have an AMD processor myself and I faced many problems with Yosemite!

The solution in VMWare for me was to choose as the host os "Windows" instead of "Mac".

However, notice that if you 've been using VMware with host os Mac, after choosing "Windows" as host os and before running your virtual machine, go to:

 C:UsersYOU_USER_NAMEDocumentsVirtual MachinesYOU_VIRTUAL_MACHINE_NAME 

find the .vmx file, edit it with notepad, find the line: firmware = "efi" and remove it. NOW run again with your boot flags!!!

Hope it helps!

    • I have searched all over and there is a LOT of info on what to do to install Mac OS w/e once you have set up the Mac VM. I am brand new at this so I may just be missing something very simple. How do I get from this... https://imgur.com/vQrLPXH To this.... https://imgur.com/RunPZ1C  
    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
