  1. With apologies for cross-posting on the tutorial.... Hi All, I'm running a "vanilla" Sierra vm on Windows host with vmware workstation 12 (from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309556-run-vanilla-os-x-el-capitan-sierra-yosemite-or-mavericks-in-vmware-workstation-12-on-a-windows-host/). I have a usb headset that doesn't work. Audio plays haltingly or not at all. I have tried these things to no avail: reinstall vmware tools set USB on VM from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 Used Audio MIDI setup to tweak the headset format. (I have tried 8, 16, 24, 32, 44, 48 X1000 Hz). The lowest frequencies work slightly better (but still not good enough for headset use). Any suggestions? Best, greg

  3. Thanks to all who have contributed to this thread and especially MSoK! I have built a new El Capitan vm on Workstation 12.0. Here are the steps that got me to the finish line: 1. Install unlocker 2.0.7 2. Download El Capitan from App Store to default location (/Applications/Install OS X El Capitan.app). 3. Download CECI.tool.txt (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=171206) 4. Move the CECI file to the desktop and use terminal to rename to ‘CECI.tool’. Run the following command to make the script executable: chmod +x CECI.tool From terminal at Desktop directory, execute: ./CECI.tool 7. The resulting file is a mountable installer. 8. Use VMWare workstation to build a new VM using: a. ElCapitan.dmg, b. 4 processors x 2 cores, c. 16 GB RAM, d. 140 GB HD (SATA) stored as a single file, e. Bridged networking, 9. Monitor set to scaling. 10. Edit the configuration file (.vmx) and add the following line: smc.version = "0" 11. Start the VM, Select the language, Open the disk Utility 12. Select the VMware Virtual SATA Harddrive and click Erase 13. Give a meaningful name, select “OS X Extended (Journaled)” and “GUID Partition Map” and click the blue Erase button and quit. 14. Accept Apple agreement. Select the disk you just configured and install. 15. Using a Fusion download (I used 7.0, but perhaps a future version of Fusion will include better tools so that step 21 can be skipped), acquire the latest Darwin.iso and make available on host system for VMware tools installation. 16. From inside the machine, eject the OS install media. 17. From VMware, mount the Darwin.iso from #15. 18. Restart in safe mode (command + r key) 19. Open terminal and execute csrutil disable 20. Install VMware Tools 21. From http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309023-el-capitan-resolution-1024-768-vmware-workstation-12/page-1?do=findComment&comment=2182722, apply vmware-resolutionSet 22. Enable csrutil Enjoy!
