    VMware Unlocker for OS X

    Windows patch does *not* work for me, VMWare Workstation 10.0.0 build 1295980. The problem seems to be: Patching C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmwarebase.dll File mapped @008D0000 length 4772944 Pattern not found in vmwarebase.dll Any ideas?
  2. It looks like "sharing" a VM disables VMWare Tools (shared folders and clipboard features are missing, mouse cursor looks wrong). If you then "unshare" the same VM things go back to normal. Is this a bug?
  3. I'm running OSX 10.8.2 under VMWare Workstation 9.0 with Tools version 5.0.1. Clipboard sharing works fine, however if I convert the VM into a "shared VM" clipboard sharing stops working (you cannot copy text from a Windows host into an OSX guest). The only reason I'm using "shared VM" is because I need the VM to auto-start on host bootup. Any ideas on how to fix this? Can someone with access to VMWare Fusion please check whether you get the same problem or whether this is specific to Workstation? Thanks, Gili
  4. WARNING: There is a problem with VMWare Tools version 5.0.1 and perhaps newer versions as well. You can no longer copy/paste from the host into the guest. The version of VMWare Tools that comes with unlocker 1.1.0 is the latest version that worked for me. I'm not sure what version that is because of http://www.insanelym...inisos-version/ UPDATE: I stand corrected. The problem only affects "Shared VM" mode regardless of which VMWare Tools is installed. VMWare Tools 5.0.1 works perfectly for normal VM. Gili
  5. I've got multiple versions of darwin.iso. Some work, some don't. How do I look up the version number of each darwin.iso file? Similarly, how do I find out what version of VMWare Tools is currently installed on the guest system? Thanks, Gili
  6. From my point of view, the biggest thing you're missing is a link off the home page to the build instructions. Finding build instructions buried inside a forum post is hard. It didn't even show up in various Google searches I've made for over a week now. For starters, you could go to http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page and add a link to the build instructions beside the Hardware Compatibility section. When you go to http://tonymacx86.blogspot.ca/ they dedicate an entire section to "guides" and feature build instructions for Mountain Lion right there at the top right corner of the main page. Just a thought... Thanks, Gili
  7. I'm happy to report that Donk was right. Here are the shortened install steps: 1. Buy Mountain Lion (don't run the installer otherwise it'll delete itself) 2. Convert the installer into an ISO: hdiutil convert "Install Mac OS X Lion.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg" -format UDTO -o "Install Mac OS X Lion.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.iso" as mentioned at http://partnerweb.vmware.com/GOSIG/MacOSX_10_7.html 3. Copy the ISO (you'll have to rename it from .iso.cdr to .iso) to the host 4. Install Workstation 9 5. Run VMWare unlocker 1.1.0 found here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/268531-workstation-8-and-fusion-4-mac-os-x-unlocker/ 6. Mount the ISO in the machine's CDROM settings 7. Create a new Virtual Machine for Mountain Lion 8. Install Mountain Lion inside the VM 9. Install VMWare tools using darwin.iso that came with the unlocker 10. You're done. There is no need for any special patches, at least not for 10.8 (10.8.2 might be a different story). Thanks again, Gili
  8. Here is a summary of what I did to get OSX 10.8 installed on a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3Rv2 motherboard. Hopefully this will help others. Install VMWare Workstation 9 Install VMWare Unlocker 1.1.0 from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/268531-workstation-8-and-fusion-4-mac-os-x-unlocker/ Downloaded install.zip from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/281192-guide-a-fast-and-easy-way-to-install-mountain-lion/ Downloaded DSDT file for the motherboard from http://www.tonymacx86.com/11-dsdt-database.html Download a DSDT editor from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/223205-dsdt-editor-and-patcher/ Edit the motherboard DSDT file, changing the layout-id to 12 as instructed by install/ALC885HDA_Lion_MLion_V1.00/Readme First.txt Compile the DSDT file and copy it into install/extra/DSDT.aml Edited install/finalize and removed the lines that copy the audio driver into place (the OS detects the audio driver fine by itself, running these lines actually causes audio to *not* work) Install Mountain Lion from USB Reboot into USB Run "finalize" Reboot back into Mountain Lion. Install VMWare Tools using darwin.iso that came with unlocker 1.1.0 Reboot. I suspect that I might Donk might be right and I should be able to install MountainLion without replacing any drivers. I'm going to try this next. Gili
  9. Update: I used the guide found here: http://www.insanelym...-mountain-lion/ and the Kernel Panics are finally gone! I haven't tried updating to 10.8.2 or enabling audio yet. I'll post follow-up questions to that thread. Thanks Donk for the suggestion of using a different installation guide! Gili
  10. Fair enough. Just to make sure I understand correctly, you're saying you did the following? 1. Convert ML installer app to ISO 2. Create new machine in Workstation 9 3. Install ML from the ISO 4. When installation completes, install VMWare Tools using darwin.iso that shiped with Unlocker 1.1.0 and you did not end up with the Kernel Panic I posted above? Thanks, Gili
  11. Hi Donk, http://www.tonymacx86.com/61-[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-install-os-x-mountain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html were the most official I could find If you know of a better way, could you please share the link? Regarding the unlocker, I am using version 1.1.0 which seems to be the newest version discussed on this forum. What do you recommend on this front? Thanks, Gili
  12. Thanks Adam, I guess I could live with these two issues, but the final problem is that once I install VMWare Tools I also start seeing kernel panics every single shutdown. Here is the stack-trace: Interval Since Last Panic Report: 2273 sec Panics Since Last Report: 6 Anonymous UUID: D9CF03E1-81DE-498A-AC3F-FB2A32D6D1DF Sat Sep 22 01:21:49 2012 panic(cpu 2 caller 0xffffff80002c4dd5): "Double fault at 0xffffff7f80ce527b, registers:\n" "CR0: 0x000000008001003b, CR2: 0xffffff804517fff8, CR3: 0x0000000001318000, CR4: 0x0000000000000660\n" "RAX: 0xffffff8006bca400, RBX: 0x0000000000000001, RCX: 0x0000000001000000, RDX: 0xffffff8005b15190\n" "RSP: 0xffffff8045180000, RBP: 0xffffff8045180020, RSI: 0x0000000000000001, RDI: 0x0000000000000001\n" "R8: 0x0000000000000006, R9: 0xffffff80065378b5, R10: 0xffffff7f8151b58c, R11: 0xffffff800064c536\n" "R12: 0xffffff8005c64188, R13: 0xffffff80058e9c54, R14: 0xffffff8005c29400, R15: 0xffffff8005e1d268\n" "RFL: 0x0000000000010202, RIP: 0xffffff7f80ce527b, CS: 0x0000000000000008, SS: 0x0000000000000010\n" "Error code: 0x0000000000000000\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1699.32.7/osfmk/i386/trap_native.c:278 Backtrace (CPU 2), Frame : Return Address 0xffffff8040275ec0 : 0xffffff8000220792 0xffffff8040275f40 : 0xffffff80002c4dd5 0xffffff80402760a0 : 0xffffff80002daf4f 0xffffff8045180020 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180050 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180080 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451800b0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451800e0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180110 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180140 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180170 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451801a0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451801d0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180200 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180230 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180260 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180290 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451802c0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451802f0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180320 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180350 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180380 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451803b0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451803e0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180410 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180440 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180470 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451804a0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451804d0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180500 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180530 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180560 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180590 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451805c0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451805f0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180620 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180650 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180680 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451806b0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451806e0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180710 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180740 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180770 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451807a0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451807d0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180800 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180830 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180860 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180890 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451808c0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451808f0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180920 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180950 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180980 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451809b0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff80451809e0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180a10 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180a40 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180a70 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180aa0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180ad0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180b00 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180b30 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180b60 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180b90 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180bc0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180bf0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180c20 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180c50 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180c80 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180cb0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180ce0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180d10 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180d40 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180d70 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180da0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180dd0 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180e00 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180e30 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 0xffffff8045180e60 : 0xffffff7f80ce5281 Backtrace continues...

  13. Hi, I managed to install Mountain Lion under VMware 9 using the instructions found at http://www.tonymacx86.com/61-[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]-install-os-x-mountain-lion-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html -- Unfortunately, I'm seeing two problems: 1. Go to "Users & Groups" and attempt to change the current user's icon. When I click on the current icon a panel comes up with Defaults, Recent and Camera. Problem is, there are no icons on the right. If I click randomly in the empty panel, then click Done, the icon *does* change. This leads me to believe that the icons aren't rendering correctly for some reason (but they *are* there). 2. Once I install VMWare Tools I begin seeing a "double caret" for text-editing fields. Meaning, when I move the mouse over a text field I see two mice. One belongs to the guest and the other to the host. The mouse looks fine as a pointer, but not in text-editor mode. Any ideas? Thanks, Gili
