There is a file on all newly-installed OSX86 PCs called "AppleTPMACPI.kext," it tries to find a TPM chip that is only on the real Intel Developer Machines. It uses all system resources trying to accomplish its impossible task. Here is how to delete it:
Navigate your OSX86 Mac to this folder: "/System/Library/Extensions/" Delete the file "AppleTPMACPI.kext" in this folder, reboot. Your computer will spring to life.

Hi all

i'm new in this forum, so only a few words, i've installed Mac Osx in VmWare 5.5 and found the same problems of someguy1806.

i've looked for the "AppleTPMACPI.kext" file in "/System/Library/Extensions/" folder , but there isn't !
maybe i made some mistake, i'm new with Mac OsX ....

anyone has some other suggestions please?

my specs are:

AMD athlon64 3000
1 Gb DDR Ram
2 SATA HD (100 and 120 Gb)
Ati Radeon X800GT AGP

thanks in advance!

Just tried this, and I can confirm that I've noticed a significant leap of performance under the newest VMWare Player, thx for the tip **Mat** :whistle:

P.S: Any other suggestions / tips to enhance performance will also be very welcomed :D

Does anyone know how to fix the pointer lag problem.

Im fine with putting up with application lag.

But the pointer lag just makes osx unusable.

Anyone know if there is VMware tools or a patch to fix this problem.
