  1. Hello All, Have been absent for a while, but now its time to upgrade my ESXi Lion install. Recently I got a new ESXi Box and joined it to my cluster with 5.5. Installed the unlocker, trying to boot 10.10 or 10.11 (after making the ISO) and always seems to hang with beach ball and no welcome screen (installers). I tried changing from EFi to Bios, running vm ver 8 or 10 always the same. I tried using both the client and web interface for the console and its always just hanging before installer starts. Any advice ? Been trying this for few days now with both 10.10 and 10.11 with same exact results. Any help is always appreciated ! Never mind. Had an issue with persistent storage, running both 10.10 and 10.11 good. VMware tools helps.
  2. Anyone got this working on ESXi or Workstation 10 ? I`m trying out 10.10 and none of the tricks in this thread worked for iCloud or iMessages. I was able to use EFI64.rom from the fusion, but still it does not work.
  3. fakesmc.kext and it`ll boot in 45 secs
  4. Donk, if you need anything from me in regards to this let me know..... I really want to get iMessage going ...
  5. Well if you are on board I`m very sure we can get this going... I`m surprised more people are not complaining about imessage or icloud not working....
  6. Well if you think about it, the EFI rom is just like BIOS file, we used to move BIOS files around right ? SO why not the EFI ROMs ? I was killing my self trying to get iCloud to work and then tough about moving the BIOS files..... I still cant get Messages to come up... This is a bit more complicated I think, im thinking the device needs a valid Apple Serial # ? Because even on Fusion this is not working, I`m guessing with a bit of effort the EFI could be edited to include a valid serial #, or perhaps some how via smbios.system.serial ? I dont know still looking around, but so far does not look good, any suggestions would be appreciated...
  7. After a week of fighting with iCloud, I think I got it ! I extracted the EFI roms from the vmware workstation 8.0.4 and used it in ESXi with vmx line efi64.filename = and it works ! iCloud that is, iMessage still no good, but that doesnt work on vmware workstation or fusion eather... If you are interested in getting this working, take extract efi bios from vmware-vmx.exe by opening it with 7zip, look in ".rsrc/BINRES". extract the 6021 file, rename it to EFI64.rom. Copy it to where the vmx file is located for the vm, add line efi64.filename = "./EFI64.rom" Thats it. start the machine and sign in to iCloud. Now to work on the iMessage !

  9. I`m spending way too much time on this issue and not getting anywhere.... Any one with any suggestions at all ?
  10. We are not using any bootloaders for the vmware installations....
  11. So it seems the old methods of Lion installation work fine for Mountain Lion GM release. I still need to use FakeSMC on my ESXi, but no more need for applelsifusion. All the issues are post install. I`m not able to get iCloud to work at all on ESXi, on VMWare workstation it seems to work. iMessage also doesnt seem to work on eather ESXi or Workstation. This release is a lot about iCloud any suggestions to get this working ? Also the CPU is shown as Unknow any fix for this ? EDIT: iCloud Solution for ESXi If you are interested in getting this working, take extract efi bios from vmware-vmx.exe by opening it with 7zip, look in ".rsrc/BINRES". extract the 6021 file, rename it to EFI64.rom. Copy it to where the vmx file is located for the vm, add line efi64.filename = "./EFI64.rom" Thats it. start the machine and sign in to iCloud.
  12. iCloud works for you ? iMessage ?
