I originally wrote this short "How To" in the following topic "Workstation 8/9, Player 4/5 and Fusion 4/5 Mac OS X Unlocker" started by Donk, see link below, since there are now some 500+ replies in the topic, I thought it was time to extract the post and start a new topic.

 

http://www.insanelym...-os-x-unlocker/

 

Although a lot of alternative methods are available, the following "How To" based on the work by Donk, Zenith432 and others on "InsanelyMac" is a proven method for installing a "Vanilla / Retail" version of OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), 10.7 (Lion), 10.8 (Mountain Lion), 10.9 (Mavericks) and 10.10 (Yosemite) under VMware Workstation 10.0.4 or Player 6.0.4, using physical media (Snow Leopard) or an email with a content code for the Mac App Store (Lion and Mountain Lion) purchased from the Apple Store or media created from the App Store download. If you have access to an existing OS X machine physical or virtual you can download OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) or 10.10 (Yosemite) for free. It is important for the method detailed below to work, you must be running a relatively recent Intel processor with VT-x (Hardware Virtualisation) support which has been enabled in BIOS.

 

Install the "Unlocker" version 1.3.0 created by Donk based on work by Donk and Zenith432, see the link above, to enable support for OS X in either VMware Workstation 10 or Player 6. If you have access to an OS X machine, Redeem your purchase and download OS X from the Mac App Store under Purchases or use Updates to get OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) or 10.10 (Yosemite) once downloaded on your OS X machine extract the InstallESD.dmg from your App Store download of "Install OS X Lion" or "Install OS X Mountain Lion" in the Applications folder, right click the icon and select "Show Package Contents" open folder "SharedSupport" and copy the InstallESD.dmg to your desktop.

 

Please note this method will NOT work for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) or OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) a script extracted from Fusion 6 is required to create a bootable DMG file from the "Install OS X Mavericks" or "Install OS X Yosemite" app downloaded from the Mac App Store, see the second post in this thread for details, link below:

 

http://www.insanelym...er-6/?p=1937757

 

If you do not have access to an OS X machine, then purchase the OS X Snow Leopard DVD from the Apple Store ($19.99 US or £14.00 UK), you can use the DVD directly but it is easier to covert the DVD to an ISO.

 

In order for you to be able to use this as install media in Workstation 10 or Player 6 (Fusion 6 and 7, ESXi 5.1, 5.1 U1, 5.5, 5.5 U1 and 5.5 U2 support .dmg files directly) the .dmg will have to be converted to an .iso, this can be done at the command line in OS X see below or in Windows using a third party product like ImgBurn ( http://www.imgburn.com/ ) or dmg2img ( http://vu1tur.eu.org/tools/ ) .

 

In an OS X terminal session run the following:

 

cd Desktop

hdiutil convert ./InstallESD.dmg -format UDTO -o InstallESD

mv InstallESD.cdr InstallESD.iso

 

The conversion process will take some time, so apply the cup of coffee rule. The conversion process actually creates a .cdr file which we rename with the mv command to a .iso which we can mount as installable media in Workstation 10 and Player 6.

 

If the "Unlocker" has been installed correctly you should now be able to create a new Apple Mac OS X Guest operating system in Workstation 10 or Player 6 and select the InstallESD.iso you have created as the "Installer disc image file (iso):" and select Apple Mac OS X as the "Guest operating system" and Mac OS X Server 10.6 64-bit, Mac OS X 10.7 64-bit or Mac OS X 10.8 as the "Version". Mac OS X 10.9 is only available as an option in Workstation 10 and Player 6 and can be installed from the .dmg created via the script detailed in the second post of this topic.

 

Next choose a name and location for the virtual machine, then specify the "Maximum disk size (GB):" (I always select a minimum of 64 GB) and whether to "Store virtual disk as a single file" or "Split virtual disk into multiple files", (I select single file for ease of portability, but in theory selecting multiple files should offer better performance), however the default settings work fine.

 

You now have the option to either Finish and create the Virtual Machine or "Customize Hardware...", I recommend adding a second core under the "Processors" section (although you may get the "Your Mac OS guest might run unreliably with more than one virtual core." warning message) and change the "Network Adapter" to "Bridged" (in theory these are optional, the default settings should will work fine, but experience would suggest using the recommended settings) select Close and Finish.

 

It has been noted, thanks to cb4, that sometimes you get no keyboard input in the virtual machine, setting the "Enhanced virtual keyboard" from "Off" to "Use if available (recommended)" resolves the issue, and does not appear to have any issues when set on for a working OS X Virtual Machine.

 

To disable the VMware multiple vCPU message add the following line to the VMX configuration for the guest whilst it is shutdown.

 

isolation.tools.bug328986.disable = "TRUE"

 

Please note this will only suppress the message, and the guest may be unstable with more than 1 vCPU, however since it is a very long time since real Mac's were not at least dual core, I always add at least two vCPU's, and have not experienced any instability. Thanks to Donk for the fix, for additional information head over to the website "Shine The Braille Toad".

 

Power on this virtual machine and the OS X installation should proceed to the Welcome screen, select your main language, and in the OS X Utilities screen select Disk Utility. In the left panel you should now see 68.72 GB VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media, or similar depending on the hard drive size you set when creating the virtual machine, select the drive, and select the Partition tab. Next change the Partition Layout: from "Current" to "1 Partition", you can select more than one partition but I generally keep it simple, give the Partition a meaningful name, i.e. OS X, and click on the Apply button (the default format "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" should be selected, and under the "Options..." button "GUID Partition Table" should be selected), you will next get an "Are you sure" warning, click on the Partition button to complete the creation of OS X formatted partition, you should see it appear below the VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media.

 

Now exit Disk Utility and select Reinstall OS X, click Continue at the Install OS X screen and agree to the Apple EULA, at the Select the disk where you want to install OS X, you should have a nice yellow OS X disk in the middle of the screen, select the disk and click on Install, the installation should then proceed with a blue progress bar and "About 9 minutes remaining", following a re-boot OS X will continue "Installing OS X on the disk "OS X ..." again with a blue progress bar and "Time remaining: About 19 minutes", if the screen goes white with only a black mouse pointer, just click to bring back the install OS X screen. Following a further re-boot you should finally be at the Welcome screen with a map of the world and the option to select your language, followed by "Select Your Keyboard", "How Do You Connect?", "Your Internet Connection" probably best to leave "TCP/IP Connection Type" Using DHCP initially, "Transfer Information to This Mac", "Terms and Conditions", "Create Your Computer Account", "Select You Time Zone", following a Thank You from Apple you should be at the OS X desktop.

 

This will create a vanilla install of OS X which can and should be patched via "Software Update..." as a matter of priority.

 

To install "VMware Tools" go to the Virtual Machine Settings for the OS X VM and select CD/DVD (IDE) and under "Connection" click on "Use ISO image file:". It is quite likely your InstallESD.iso will still be selected, so just "Browse..." to the location of the darwin.iso and select "Open". The darwin.iso is not present in a standard install of either Workstation 10 or Player 6, it is added as part of the "Unlocker" install and is located in the VMware Workstation folder under "Program Files (x86)\VMware" or "Program Files\VMware" for a 32-bit host in a default install, make sure the "Device status" has "Connected" ticked generally "Connect at power on" is ticked by default.

 

You may get an error when switching mounted .iso's in the Virtual Machine Settings "The guest operating system has locked the CD-ROM door..." it is OK to answer "Yes" to the question "Disconnect anyway and override the lock?".

 

In your OS X desktop a VMware Tools icon should appear in the upper right corner, double click and select "Install VMware Tools", it is recommended to install VMware Tools as it offers an enhanced user experience when working with the Virtual Machine. Please note VMware Tools cannot be installed from the menu in Workstation 10 or Player 6 to an OS X Virtual Machine (unlike Fusion 6 and 7, ESXi 5.1, 5.1 U1, 5.5, 5.5 U1 and 5.5 U2 which support VMware Tools installation from the menu).

 

To get the best out of the graphics, bearing in mind QE/CI are not supported in an OS X VM so applications that use QE/CI are not going to work correctly, Zenith432 has provided an enhanced graphics driver (VMsvga2_v1.2.5_OS_10.6-10.8.pkg) for Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion, and (VMsvga2_v1.2.5_OS_10.9.pkg) for Mavericks, as well as a patch for guest autofit (guestd_patches.pkg), see links below:

 

http://www.insanelym...-for-os-x-v125/

 

http://sourceforge.n.../files/Display/

 

The latest VMware Tools from Fusion 7 now provide the best graphics support for OS X virtual machines, and Zenith432 has stopped development of the VMsvga2 graphics drivers. The latest darwin.iso is available to download at the VMware CDS Repository, see link below:

 

http://www.insanelym...er/487896-msok/

 

http://softwareupdat...ds/vmw-desktop/

 

Once you are up and running with your virtual OS X machine you need to do a couple of housekeeping tasks to ensure your virtual machine does not freeze. Firstly go to "System Preferences" and select "Energy Saver" and set "Computer sleep:" and "Display sleep:" to Never and also un-tick "Put hard disks to sleep when possible", "Wake for Ethernet network access" and "Allow power button to put the computer to sleep". In "Desktop & Screen Saver" set "Screen Saver" to "Start after:" Never.

 

One final note, occasionally you can come across an unsupported CPU error, this should be rare if you have recently downloaded your OS X media from the App Store as the App Store version is updated when a new combo patch is released. Alternatively if your CPU is one of the very latest Intel processors not yet supported by OS X, Apple check CPUID's when installing OS X, and will not install on an unsupported processor platform.

 

(A prime example was when Intel introduced the Core i3, i5 and i7 and Xeon 5600 series processors, Snow Leopard 10.6.4 was the lowest version of OS X to support the new processors, unfortunately the highest available "vanilla" media was and still is 10.6.3, without the CPUID mask it was impossible to install OS X Snow Leopard. As stated earlier in this post, Apple starting with OS X 10.7 Lion deliver the latest slipstreamed media via the App Store.)

 

In either case add the following line to your OS X virtual machine configuration file (.vmx):

 

cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" or cpuid.1.eax = "----:----:----:0010:----:----:1010:0111"

 

The first was based on work by myself and Donk, the second a recommendation by jmattson of VMware, see links below:

As with OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) several methods are available to install OS X Mavericks (10.9) or the recently released OS X Yosemite (10.10) as a free upgrade, thanks Apple!

 

OS X Mavericks (10.9) or Yosemite (10.10) can be installed as a FREE UPGRADE on an existing OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8) or later virtual machine, but make sure your virtual machine to be upgraded meets the minimum specification for OS X Mavericks or Yosemite (2 Processors and 2 GB RAM), by default OS X Snow Leopard installs with 1 Processor and 1 GB RAM, so edit the virtual machine settings before attempting an in-place upgrade. I would also advise making sure your to be upgraded OS X virtual machine is fully patched, and take a snapshot before you start.

 

To install OS X Mavericks (10.9) or Yosemite (10.10) as a fresh install is more complicated as extracting the DMG file as detailed in the first post of this topic does NOT create a bootable image.

 

In order to create a bootable DMG that works in both Workstation 10 and ESXi 5.5 requires a script extracted from Fusion 6 to create a DMG from the "Install OS X Mavericks" or "Install OS X Yosemite" app downloaded from the Mac App Store.

 

Download the "Install OS X Mavericks" or "Install OS X Yosemite" app from the Mac App Store, it will appear as a free upgrade under Updates, the default location is /Applications/Install OS X Mavericks.app or /Applications/Install OS X Yosemite.app, if you have not downloaded to the default location or copied the app from another machine then make a note of the location as the Create Mavericks Installer (CMI.tool) or Create Yosemite Installer (CYI.tool) script will require the location as an appended parameter (inputApp="$1") when run.

 

Download the attached "CMI.tool.txt" or "CYI.tool.txt" script file to your OS X 10.x desktop and rename (in a terminal session) the file to remove the .txt extension:

 

mv CMI.tool.txt CMI.tool or mv CYI.tool.txt CYI.tool

 

IMPORTANT do not modify the script unless you are using a script editor as using a standard text editor adds end of line markers, which causes the script to hang, run with errors or do nothing.

 

Next we need to make the script executable, again in a terminal session run the following command:

 

chmod +x CMI.tool

 

or

 

chmod +x CYI.tool

 

Run the script file (in a terminal session) as shown below with two parameters, the first parameter (as detailed in the script inputApp="$1" for information only) is the location and name of the downloaded app (for the default download location "/Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app" or "/Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app"), and the second parameter (outputDmg="$2") the location and name of the to be generated dmg file (for example "InstallESD.dmg") as I am running the script from the desktop and I have not specified a location for the outputDmg file it will be created on the desktop:

 

./CMI.tool /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app InstallESD.dmg

 

or

 

./CYI.tool /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app InstallESD.dmg

 

To make life simpler the Create Mavericks Installer.tool has been shortened to CMI.tool, if you still have the original long version you can change and run it with the terminal session commands detailed below:

 

mv Create\ Mavericks\ Installer.tool.txt CMI.tool

chmod +x CMI.tool

./CMI.tool /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app InstallESD.dmg

 

(Please note the syntax is very important for the Create Mavericks or Yosemite Installer script to work correctly, use the "\" to indicate a space in the application name)

 

The created DMG image is mountable and installs OS X Mavericks (10.9) or Yosemite (10.10) in both Workstation 10, Player 6 and ESXi 5.5, please note these are the only DMG files which can be used as a bootable image in Workstation 10 and Player 6. (Please note DMG files extracted from either the Lion or Mountain Lion App Store downloads need to be converted to ISO to work in Workstation 10 or Player 6.

 

Thanks to Donk for the original Create Mavericks Installer script file, and to Shela and JJTagy for the modifications to support Yosemite, additional information regarding the script file are available in posts later in this topic.

 

Shela has pointed out an error in the original CYI.tool script posted here, so the original version has been removed and replaced with an updated version which now creates a working .dmg (new version posted 19th November 2014).

The recent release of Fusion 7 has added support for OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) but has required VMware to make a lot of changes to provide acceptable levels of performance for Yosemite as a virtual machine. While Workstation 10 and Player 6 can run Yosemite, performance is reduced compared to Mavericks even using the latest VMware Tools from Fusion 7. Workstation 11 and Player 7 will be required to provide better Yosemite support, and the current unlocker is NOT compatible with Fusion 7 and therefore not Workstation 11 or Player 7.

 

Native support for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) is included in VMware Fusion 6, and once unlocked Workstation 10 and Player 6.

 

The "How to" will work for Workstation 10 and Player 6 using the current Unlocker (1.3.0), however existing OS X VM's may need the Hardware compatibility set to "Workstation 10.0 virtual machine" to run, OS X VM's created in Workstation 9 or Player 5 can be safely upgraded to Hardware compatibility version 10. 

 

If you are running OS X 10.9 you can also change the Guest operating system Version to "Mac OS X 10.9", this will update your .vmx configuration file with guestOS = "darwin13-64", but this is only supported, or displayed, if Hardware compatibility is set to "Workstation 10.0 virtual machine".

Good morning,

 

Was trying to get vmware 10 to display "Mac OS X 10.9" but no go.

 

Was taking a lot of care to install the unlocker correctly.

 

Any chance someone could share the vmware files, before install? ( That should be a small set of files, including config vmx files and empty hard drive files)

 

PRITTY PLEASE :)

 

I am a OSX developer and Have a Legal GM, and would like to grab a VM to run on my Windows Machine at work...

 

THNX!

naru6705,

 

Is your InstallESD.iso 10.8.5 or 10.9, if it is 10.8.5 then all should work fine, unless the iso is corrupt in some way. If you are trying to install 10.9 that is not going to work, see the second post in this topic.

Thanks again @MSoK, I guess ISO was corrupt and hence not working.

hdiutil trick ISO wasn't working for me and then I found this http://vu1tur.eu.org/tools/

dmg2img-1.6.5

dmg to img worked like charme and I was able to create ISO within two minutes and install was smooth thanks to your tutorial, now I have vanilla OSX 10.8.5 with all updates installed.

 

One question tho - I am not able to see iTunes and Youtube videos, do I need to change some kext?

This required accelerated graphics drivers in OS X.  Unfortunately they do not exist so anything that relies on QE/CI will not work in VMware.

Hi,

 

I have followed these instructions which are great, though after creating the guest OS. I can power on the ISO and launch the setup screen, though when I get to the screen asking where I wish to install Mountain Lion, I cannot see any virtual disks to select and hence this stops my progress.  

 

I have uploaded picture of the virtual disk configuration and have also tried this with SCSI, IDE & SATA.  I was wondering if you have encountered this.  I am running:

  • Windows 8.1
  • VMWare Workstation 10.0.0 build-1295980;
  • Tried installing guest as Mac OS 10.8 & Mac OS 10.9.

Thanks,

Matt

Matt,

 

Before you can install OS X, you need to create an OS X formatted partition, use Disk Utility to do this. I have updated the original post in this thread with instructions for the full OS X installation process, I hope that helps.

DP1 was working OK in VW9, after upgrade to VW10 I could no longer boot it (to upgrade to DP9)

 

So I did clone one of my working ML 10.8.5 VMs & upgraded to M DP9

 

Still can not boot it

sebus,

 

Sorry, one very silly question, you did re-install the Unlocker?

 

When you upgrade to Workstation 10, older VM's sometimes have a problem, so try updating the Hardware compatibility to Workstation 10.0 virtual machine, rather than the 8 or 9 from earlier versions of Workstation.

Has to r-create vmx (keeping the disk). Obviously something in the ML one was not correct for Maverick

 

DP9 finished upgrade just fine

 

But now I can not shutdown the VM, as I get KP

sebus,

 

Not sure why you are having so many problems, OS X 10.8.5 and upgrade to OS X 10.9 GM Seed, both working fine in Workstation 10, do you want to compare .vmx files?

As I said, after redoing .vmx from scratch I have no problems upgrading/running 10.9 GM just fine

 

The crash is on the shutdown, wonder if the physical CPU is completly not supported by 10.9

Sebus,

 

OK, have you tried adding either of the CPUID masks mentioned in the original post, The one I and Donk created is from a Xeon 5520 processor so should work for your 5600 series processor, worth a try. I definitely have OS X 10.9 GM working on a Xeon 5500 series processor, without crashes.

This is PERFECT!!!! i never thought id see the day id get to use OS X in a VM :'D im sucessfully using Lion 10.7 in VMWare 10 and it installed fine

 

Thank you so much MSoK!!! :D this tutorial is amazing and the tools by the community cannot be praised enough <3

there are just 4 problems im having with it though, i was hoping perhaps you could help? :/ its the first time ive used a non Windows or Linux sysem in VMWare so these arent common problems for me

1) it cant use shared folders from host even thought ive already set it in the VM's configuration, i dont see a shared folder anywhere in finder or on the desktop

2) it cant connect to the internet at all even though VMWare is set to use NAT, am i doing something wrong here? do i need to install a special driver within OS X to use VMWare's emulated network card or something?

3) resizing the VM's window doesnt always make the guest resize itself to the size of the window, with Windows or Linux guests it always works. 

 

4) moving an app's window within the VM makes it stutter a bit when you move it around >.< is there a way to fix this?

 

 

if its any help my specs are:

 

Windows 7 x64 (the host that is)

Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2.00GHz  (with turboboost its 2.9GHz)

8.00 GB RAM

Radeon HD 6770M

 

ive enebled hardware acceleration and made the VM to use 2GB of RAM, and i gave it one processor with 3 cores in the CPU config of VMWare, any help would be much appreciated!

Hi mate,

I can help you with questions 1 & 2.

1. You need to click on Finder, then Preferences and check the box for 'Connected Servers' that will show Shared Folders on the Desktop.

2. You need to set your Network Connection to Bridged for it to work properly under the VM.

I hope this helps.
