I am trying go get the Virtual Machine of OS X Mavericks to run on my computer.
I think, but I am actually not so sure anymore, that my computer meets the minimum requirements.
Every thime I try to run the image I get to the grey apple logo and then it seems to restart again. I have followed all of the instructions in the youtube videos that I could find and read some other howtos.
I did use the VMware Unlocker. Even though this fixed the problem for others, it didn’t work for me.
Hardware Virtualization is turned on. I even checked it using the the Intel Prozessors ID Utility.
You can find my hardwarespecs in the attachment “CORE-PC.txt”
I am running VMware Workstation 9.0.2 build-1031769 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
I have also attached the log-file from vmware. I searched for “error”s in it … found some but don’t know that to do with it … googled it – couldn’t find anything usefull.
Again – a short description of my problem:
I press “Power on this virtual machine”, I get a black screen. After a while I get the grey vmware logo on the gray screen. Then I see something written on the top left corner. It says "Attempting to start up from: EFI VMware Virtual SCSI Hard Drive (0.0)..." (it doesn't say "unsuccessful") googled it, tried to remote “firmware=efi” from the vmx file – dunno why I did that – didn’t help either.
After that I get the grey screen with the grey apple logo without the spinning wheel. 1 to max 2 Seconds later it all restarts again. Black screen, vmware screen, grey apple logo screen, black screen, vmware screen, grey apple logo screen and so on
I have also tried some tutorials using VirtualBox and iAtkos, Hazard and at least 2 other methods.
OSX 10.6.2 works perfectly using VirtualBox. Didn’t try it in VMWare. As soon as I switch to 10.8 or newer I get these problems with Vmware and VirtualBox alike.
Please help me …
P.S.: English is not my native language, so I hope I described everything good enough
