#1857597 Problems running Mountain Lion under VMWare 9

Posted by NickThompson on 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: http://browser.prima...kbench2/1116188 Some relevant links: Unlocker Thread: http://www.insanelym...-os-x-unlocker/ VMWare Tools Thread: http://www.insanelym...osx-as-a-guest/

#1857274 Tip: VMWare Tools for OSX as a guest

If you need to get the VMWare Tools for OS X as guest OS running on, say, Windows 7 - you can download the "darwin.iso" from the software update site directly... http://softwareupdat...25449/packages/ Grab the com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar file. You may want to browse back up to the http://softwareupdat...desktop/fusion/ level to make sure you've grabbed the latest version of the tools. Once you have the "zip.tar" file (it's only about 2Mb), you can extract it and browse into the archive to find the ISO. Mount the ISO inside OSX and run the installer.
