In Topic: How to Install OS X 10.x (Snow Leopard to El Capitan) in VMware Workstation 1...

JJTagy,

 

I initially ran in to the same problem after downloading Sierra from the App Store, a reboot of the VM resolved the problem.

 

I have now done fresh builds and installed El Capitan and Sierra from the iso created with shela's new script.

 

MSoK, JJTagy,

 

CECI.tool and CSI.tool does not detach OS X Install ESD.

'hdiutil attach' command cannot attach the same image twice, so my script reports error.

This is a defect of CECI.tool and CSI.tool.

Ty shela. However, using your tool, it kept saying that it couldn't mount the Install dmg for some reason. Not sure why it was failing, so I just modified the old CECI tool to extract the bootable Sierra dmg.

 

JJTagy,

 

Probably, you mounted another install image (InstallESD.dmg) in the past and has been left mounted.

Please unmount all of them and retry.

 

Check the result of following command whether mounted or not.

ls /Volumes

If you find 'OS X Base System' path, unmount like this.

hdiutil unmount -force /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System

and also, if you find 'OS X Install ESD' path, unmount like this.

hdiutil unmount -force /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD

shela,

 

Excellent work, with your permission I will add the script file to the second post on this thread, and update the instructions.

 

Regards,

MSoK.

 

Sure thing.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

Hi, MSoK.

 

I created make iso script for between MacOSX 10.6 and macOS 10.12. (might 10.5)

XXX.tool.txt is not necessary any more!

 

This script find your AppStore OSX Installer automatically.

Even if you have InstallESD.dmg only, you can specify the path.

 

 

Download the attached "create_osx_iso.txt" script file to your desktop.

In a terminal session, run the following command:

 

cd ~/Desktop

mv create_osx_iso.txt create_osx_iso

chmod +x create_osx_iso

./create_osx_iso

Colt2's method is very useful.

I create OS X Install ISO Creater script for OSX 10.7 - 10.11.

 

How to use:

  <<Interactive Mode>>
    create_osx_iso [-o /path/to/output/directory]
 
  <<Batch Mode>>
    create_osx_iso [-o /path/to/output/directory] /path/to/InstallESD.dmg
 
 
Interactive mode is using Install app from App Store.
Batch mode is using user selected InstallESD.dmg.
