I'm not sure if my problem applies to this thread, but I wanted to ask you this:
I have a perfectly working Mac OS X 10.11.0 El Capitan installation in my main computer. To avoid connecting and disconnecting the disk, I connect it with USB so I can easily remove it if I want to load Windows. The disk boots in UEFI mode in Clover and from there I load El Capitan. For some reason standard loading doesn't always succeed, but if I load it by ignoring caches it works OK.
As you can imagine I have also loaded a lot of applications. I want to use that installation in VMWare Workstation (patched to support Mac OS X), so I created a new Virtual machine and the chosen guest OS is Mac OS X 10.9 (the higher on the list). I have the Mac hard disk connected to my host (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit) and upon starting the virtual machine I connect it to the guest. Since the main virtual hard disk is empty yet, the virtual machine tries to boot from the USB disk and starts clover. So far so good. The problem is when I choose to start El Capitan, no matter which option I choose (standard, verbose, safe mode, ignore caches), I see an error message "Internal Error" and the virtual machine hangs and closes. Does anyone knows what changes I have to do to the virtual machine settings and/or the VMX file to make it work? I would like to boot into the USB hard disk and then clone my El Capitan installation onto the main virtual hard disk, so I can use it and experiment with upgrades without fearing to destroy the original installation. Of course I would prefer to use my existing installation with all the installed applications. I don't want to start from the beginning with a new El Capitan installation!
Thank you in advance.
PS: Just to make sure, I restarted my PC and loaded El Capitan natively, it does work. I only have problem making it work in VMWare Workstation.
EDIT: I recently downloaded iATKOS EC (El Capitan version) and I prepared a USB Flash drive for it. Before trying to install El Capitan from scratch, I decided to connect my El Capitan disk and boot it. iATKOS has a newer version of Clover, 3322, and it succeeded into booting my existing El Capitan installation in VMWare! I only had to install VMWare tools for the drivers and I'm good to go!
