I've a PC with AMD processor and when I try to run mac os x 10.8 on vmware workstation I get the following error:
The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine.

After that, I tried installing the mac on my laptop which has intel i5 (windows 7 64 bit) processor and it worked fine and I didn't encouter that error at all.

I want now to install it on my pc. I've also tried version 10.6 and the same error came up.

I searched the internet and tried some of the easy solutions but none worked. And some solutions were complicated and I didn't understand them.

My pc specs are as follows:
processor: AMD Phenom™ II X3 720 -- 3.42 GHz
Memory: 4GB
Windows 7 64-bit

Thanks in advance

Mac does NOT support AMD so you would need to find a release with hacked kernel

If something seems too complicated, then maybe the task is not for you?

Also this section is for virtualization, so please post in a correct section

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: mac, amd, os x, vmware
