In Topic: DMI/SMBIOS editing in VMware with EFI firmware?

18 October 2011 - 01:16 AM

Thanks both of you. I found ##### and XPC are EFI bootloaders, that patch the SMBIOS. I tried them, but they're made to be booted from BIOS and DUET.
The source isn't too big and I think I should be able to port or fix them.

I'll try that before attempting to modify the EFI firmware binaries, which sounds pretty difficult.

I've followed the same steps as the others in this thread and am stuck at the spinning beach ball after the apple logo.

c2d e6300 with vt-x enabled
retail 10.7 dvd, created iso out of the inner .dmg
workstation 8
ran unlocker from Admin cmd prompt
tried 10.6 server 64bit and 10.7 64bit machine types
iso mounted to SCSI 0:1
2GB ram, 2 CPU

taker123 on first page did the same steps and it works for him...
what am I missing?


update to my issue. hope this is the right thread.

I added -v to get verbose bootup and found it was stuck in PCI Configuration Begin.
I then added npci=0x2000 and it continues, but I see two other errors:
BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist: 2 No such file or directory
Bug: launchctl.c2408 ...(line continues)
and
ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed

Then it shows "DSMOS has arrived" and shows the beach ball.

Are those two BootCache and CST failures the problem? I can't seem to find a solution that applies to me
