I have a .vmdk of Mac OS X 10.8 that is made for VMWare Workstation 9. I have VMWare workstation 9.0.2, and I have unlocked it using the unlocker from Donk. My computer has an AMD E-450 with hardware virtualization activated.

 

When I run the virtual machine this happens : Attached File  mac 10.8 vmware 9.png   217.54KB   13 downloads

 

What am I missing here? Is there another bypass I need or something?

 

I've looked at many tutorials, and they are all the same, and none work.

boaman,

 

Donk's "Unlocker" is of no help in your situation, as Apple only use Intel CPU's, there is no support for AMD processors in OS X, you will need to find an alternative kernel which has had the AMD command set injected. If you have a dig around on this forum I am sure you will find a solution, just sorry I cannot point you in the right direction.

First off you need to replace the kernel with the AMD kernel, plus I don't know how great APU support.

If you need help post your question under the Developers Corner -> AMD Development -> Help Topic

Ok. I found that the secondary VMDK I had was made to be used with amd-kernel, and just required a simple switch out. I did, and am now updating VMWare due to some unforeseen issues with the files. 

 

Thanks for the help though!
