In Topic: Problems running Mountain Lion under VMWare 9

02 October 2012 - 02:30 PM

I've just managed to get ML 10.8.2 installed under VMWare Player 5 with no issues. I just converted the DMG into an ISO (using dmg2img in Windows) then plugged it into a unlocked VMWare Player. Performance is good enough to do basic iOS development on too.. Here is my Geekbench score:

Another tip - if you are trying to do this within VMWare Player running Mountain Lion, you may run into Gatekeeper not allowing the installation due to "Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers."

The following link shows screenshots on how to disable it:

Basically you need to go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy. Under General, make sure you have unlocked the settings and then set the "Allow applications downloaded from..." to Anywhere. After the installation you might want to switch back to the previous setting.

In Topic: VMWARE player 4.04 (v8) - Upgrade to 10.7.4 failed

As MSoK suggests - this works fine with 10.7.5. I have Documented my upgrade process here:
I now have 10.7.5 + Player 5 running perfectly.

In Topic: Workstation 8/9/10, Player 4/5/6 and Fusion 4/5/6 Mac OS X Unlocker

01 October 2012 - 11:39 AM


The latest Unlocker (1.1.0) works fine with Workstation 9, Player 5 and ESXi 5.1, and is required to support OS X on non Apple hardware. With the latest versions Unlocked 10.7.4 and 10.7.5 work fine as well as 10.8.2, and both Lion and Mountain lion appear to perform much faster and boot quickly using the new VMware v9 products.

Thanks for the response - I just tried a clean uninstall (remove product, delete folder from Program files, reboot), clean install of Player 5 (install and reboot), then installed the unlocker using a command prompt running with admin prvieleges (right click, run as admin) to execute the install.sh.

My 10.7.3 VM booted first time, no errors. Gonna try the 10.7.5 combo update now. Will also try making a 10.8 VM later!

Cheers for the unlocker - nice work! :) Much appreciated.
