Sorry for this possibly newbie question....

I have routinely moved myVM.vmwarevm virtual machines around, relocating to other directories.

I created a Snow Leopard VM with unlocker v 1.1 and VMware Fusion v 4.1.2. The vm works great, but when I try to move it from the Documents directory where Fusion created the Virtual Machines folder, I get a message about a file missing. When I move it back, it works.

The question is... What file?

Thanks

Hello all I'm getting the following error message when trying to start up os X from windows using vmware 8.0.3: The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system


I'm on a win 7 64bit system my cpu is a intel i7-3610QM. Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks.

Apple don't support Ivy Bridge processors yet and so that error is coming form the MACH kernel. You will need to find another kernel to run and boot on Ivy Bridge CPUs.

I used unlocker 1.1.0 to unlock the new VMware Workstation 8.0.4 and it is working fine.

My version of OS X is still 10.7.3. I'm going to try to upgrade to 10.7.4 again and see if the new Workstation release includes the fix. I will update this post in a bit with the results.

[Edit]
It seems that 10.7.4 still does not boot (or I am not patient enough to let it finish). Sticking with 10.7.3 for now.

Guys, just go and get the free Tech Preview of Workstation all works without any hacks.

OS X isn't what I use Workstation for most of the time so I'll just wait for the changes in the tech preview to make it to the stable channel. :-)

Fair enough. Just want to say that I have been using the Tech Previews since Mach and rock solid as far as my usage goes. Run a development team in a big software house. Lots of big VMs with development environments.

I did NOT have to use the tech preview to get 10.7.4 to boot. I used this information to get 10.7.4 to boot on Workstation 8.0.3. I don't remember where I got it from, but it was one of the other Mac virutalization/help forums out there. Found it through a search on Google. The first part is what I did to get Lion to boot properly after upgrading from Snow Leopard, and the 2nd part is what I did to get it to 10.7.4 to work on workstation 8.0.3. I haven't upgraded to 8.0.4 yet.

sudo -s
cp -a AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext /System/Library/Extensions
chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleLSIFusionMPT.kext
touch -c /System/Library/Extensions
kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
kextcache -system-caches
<reboot>

I succeeded in installing OS 10.7.4 under Workstation 8.0.3 for Windows as follows
- Get the combo update for 10.7.4 from Apple [don't use software update.]
- Retain AppleSMC.kext v3.1.1d8 from OS 10.7.3.
- Create a snapshot.
- Open a root Terminal.
- Run the combo update under OS 10.7.3.
- Don't press restart when the update completes.
- Goto /System/Library/Extensions in the root Terminal.
- remove AppleSMC.kext, or move it to a backup location.
- restore AppleSMC.kext from OS 10.7.3 that you retained.
- touch /System/Library/Extensions.
- Now press restart in the installer window.
- The system should restart successfully.

I have attached the AppleSMC.kext I downloaded from the site I got this info. I was unable to properly copy out my 10.7.3 kext and copy it back. I'm not very good with Mac OS yet, so somebody else may have better luck. I'm sure they are just assuming some of the steps are known.

Hope this helps.

After applying the latest unlocker

+ this thing.


My laptop is intel core 2 duo T5270 (VT disabled).

My host is Vista 32 bit.


When I run 10.7.3 using VMWare Workstation 8.0.3 (already patched),

I get to see however, following error:


Software virtualization is incompatible with long mode on this platform. Disabling long mode. Without long mode support, the virtual machine will not be able to run 64 bit code.


Later, OS refuses to boot - with a traffic 'Wrong side' sign - it remains for 1 min like that, and then powers off!


I uninstalled + reinstalled + reapplied all the patches in required order, as depicted on (http://www.sysprobs....ows-7-computer/) - but to no avail.


(It seems I get past unlocker good - I can see Apple Mac OS X in OS options, but somehow can't get it to work right.)

Need urgent help!!!


Thanks in advance for reading me!

Well I am not sure what image you are trying to run, but the unlocked is designed only for vanilla Apple version. You could well have some odd kernel extension or app in a pre-made image. So stay clear of them.

thanks Donk - btw, can you take a look at my vmx file (I edited my post sometime afterwards) - if that tells you something?

And yes - I read your comment about free tech preview 2012 of vmware workstation, which I am downloading right now.

Can you bit more elaborate how can I get this Lion thing working with it, just in case? Would I need any patches over it?

I do not have retail dvd available to me in my area - hackintosh is a long way, and virtualization is my last resort as of now.
So need as much detail as possible to get it working on my intel Core 2 duo, 2 gb ram dell config.

Greatly appreciate your help...

Sorry I can't help at the moment. I am on vacation in Iceland with limited Internet access. However I am pretty sure most people have not got this working on a CPU with no VT-x and consequently no 64-bit support in the guests.

After applying the unlocker, why do I see these OS choices:

Mac OS X 10.7
Mac OS X 10.7 64 Bit

I obviously chose the first one, still I faced the error and the 'stop' sign later.

Sorry to sound silly here, as I am newbie to this virtualization concept, but looking at these choices I was inclined to think 10.7.x is available in both 32 and 64-bit mode.

Not really wishing to trouble you in your holidays.
Have a great vacation :-)
just in case when you find some free time, please elaborate.

Well I can't test anything as no access to kit at moment. I believe that VMware only run Mac OS X guests using VT-x even when running 32-bit. There was a clean-up of the code paths carried out in Fusion 4, which Workstation 8 inherited, as they share a common code base for the virtualization engine. My patch re-enables the guest OS settings in a dialog, plus a few other changes. It doesn't mess with the use of VT-x, as frankly I am not sure where that is used in the code. The other problem is that when some folks got it running for Snow Leopard it was almost unusable without VT-x.

Sorry can't help much more at present. Maybe one of the other forum members can help you. If proved wrong and/or someone can suggest a patch, I will incorporate it into the unlocker.

Just get processor with VT enabled & be done with!

Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T5270 does not have VT disabled, it just does NOT have it at all!

Hi All,

I am having problems installing the Tech Preview, I keep getting an 'MSI Failed' error message.

I have tried uninstalling VMWare and installing it again but, the same error message appears.

Does anybody know how to completely remove VMWare from my system so I can install it again from scratch?

I am on Windows 7.

Thank you for your time.

All the best,

NSCXP2005

EDIT

I managed to fix this MSI Failed error by redirecting %temp% to C:\Temp

All the best,

NSCXP2005
