I have a Dell Precision T5500 which I have installed ESXi 6.5 on. I was going to run Unlocker on it but I have read that it is unstable with 6.5.
I realised early on that my ESXi (which is the Dell custom U3 build) was showing MacOS 10.12 as an installable option. However, I cannot get the installer to boot (the progress bar gets to about 60% then it reboots). If possible I would like to use vanilla Sierra or High Sierra.
So, my first question is: do I need to run Unlocker even if it is already in the list (does Unlocker do more than just make the options available)? I'm pretty sure I saw somebody ask this question somewhere online a couple of weeks ago but I cannot remember what was said and my Google-fu is failing me now.
If I run Unlocker on ESXi 6.5 what are the real repercussions? I only use the HTML interface fling. I have read that hostd sometines crashes but I am unclear what that does and if, in my scenario, it would matter (the "host" in the name suggests it is important but it's best to check ). I would be happy to downgrade to 6.0 if necessary.
I am sure that the High Sierra iso I created is solid because I successfully installed it in VirtualBox on my MacBook Pro.
PS. I am a first time poster here and very much a noob with ESXi, Unlocker and Virtualising MacOS.
