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

Question

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

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!

    • Hi, everyone, thanks for your time.
      I'm trying to fresh install macOS 10.13.1 (Build 17B48). I'm trying to do this by free myself from multibeast and by put kexts in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.3 and set a good config.plist.

      I have this famous issue in verbose mode and can't boot.
      IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
      IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
        It's looks like your own issue.

      Every time, i can boot the first time. I start my post-install by install the web drivers automatically served by Nvidia. And never be able to boot again…
      I didn't found any plist option that permit to boot over this issue…
