I've been trying to set up a VM running Mavericks on two different PCs with AMD FX CPUs, FX-4170, and FX-8350.
I'm using VMware workstation 11
The procedure I follow creating the virtual machine is:
Set install disk to Mavericks ISO
Microsoft Windows - Windows 7 x64 as Guest Operating System (per many online tutorials)
Firmware Type BIOS
1 processor 2 cores
NAT for Network
LSI Logis SAS for I/O controller
SATA disk type
I run the boot flags "amdfx -v"
Everything boots ok, I install the OS and the mouse works fine. Once the OS is installed and Niresh runs all of its post install things I can use the mouse and navigate perfectly fine.
The problem comes when I restart or power off and power on the VM. Once I get back into the operating system the mouse is way off. If I have the cursor towards the left of the screen then the actual place it clicks is far to the left of the cursor. If I have it towards the right of the screen then the spot it clicks is far off to the right. This is the same for all 4 directions. This makes it almost impossible to navigate.
I have tried changing the "Optimize mouse for games" setting to all 3 options to no avail.
I just don't understand why it works perfectly well until I reboot.
Does anyone have any insight?
