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

Question

bigman2    0

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

 

Ta

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!

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
