  1. I realized I only need a standard bootable Mavericks Mac OS X 10.9 Flash Drive for installing in an unlocked VMWare Host. I re-created my USB drive using the scripts below, which exclude any scripts that modify a standard Mac Bootable Drive. I sucessfully installed Mac OS X 10.9 on my virtual machine. sudo mount -t hfsplus -o force,rw /dev/sdb1 /media/MAVERICKS cd /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/SharedSupport/ md5sum InstallESD.dmg 7z x InstallESD.dmg InstallMacOSX.pkg/InstallESD.dmg cd InstallMacOSX.pkg/ 7z x InstallESD.dmg 3.hfs rm InstallESD.dmg sudo mkdir /mnt/osx sudo mount -o loop 3.hfs /mnt/osx/ mkdir base cd base 7z x /mnt/osx/BaseSystem.dmg 3.hfs sudo mkdir /mnt/base sudo mount -o loop 3.hfs /mnt/base/ sudo cp -r /mnt/base/. /media/MAVERICKS sudo rm /media/MAVERICKS/System/Installation/Packages sudo cp -r /mnt/osx/Packages /media/MAVERICKS/System/Installation sudo umount /mnt/base sudo rmdir /mnt/base sudo umount /mnt/osx sudo rmdir /mnt/osx cd /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallMacOSX.pkg/base/ cd ../../ rm -r InstallMacOSX.pkg mkdir kernel cd kernel sudo 7z x -so /media/MAVERICKS/System/Installation/Packages/BaseSystemBinaries.pkg Payload | bunzip2 | cpio -i sudo cp mach_kernel /media/MAVERICKS/ cd .. rm -r -f kernel/ sudo chmod 6755 System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Versions/A/Resources/runner
  2. Changing the permissions on the file: "runner" fixed the initial problem, and I was able to install OS X in VMWare. However, now it will boot from the virtual disk, but it shuts down immediately without any errors. I tried Safe Mode, which displays the progress bar, but then also shuts down. I used Disk Utility on the USB Drive to check the Virtual Disk, and it passed all checks. Any help is greatly appreciated...
  3. I get the error message: "There was a problem reading the Mac OS X Installation disc. Carefully clean the disc, and then try reinstalling." See the attached Installer Log below. Any suggestions?
