  1. One of the great things about this place is that I can always check in when a new version of Workstation drops, knowing that Donk has already updated the Unlocker to work with it. You don't get enough credit, man. Thank you. :)
  2. Thanks for the update, Zenith432. Any thoughts on what to do about the fact that Mavericks wants to limit you to 1024x768 when using VMwareGfx.kext?
  3. Hyper-V requires support from the guest OS itself. Unless Apple has a sudden change of heart here, don't expect it to work any time soon.
  4. Seconding that 10.8 ML works just fine with the latest VMWare Tech Previews after the requisite unlocker patching. I haven't had a chance to try iCloud though, so I can't confirm what yozh is seeing.
  5. The following comes from the VMWare forums. This is primarily meant for Fusion, but for any Workstation users out there this should also work as well.
  6. Thanks for the advice Zenith432, but as with everyone else it hasn't changed anything. VMWare seems to be purposely disabling all hardware acceleration and running it in software regardless of how the VM is configured. Which means the problem probably isn't Lion. You said hardware acceleration is working for you. What GPU do you have and what drivers are you using? I'm wondering if perhaps VMware blacklisted certain hardware/driver combinations if they were causing problems. EDIT: Eureka! I was browsing the VMWare forums and came across this gem: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/32866...5&tstart=15 Following those instructions fixed the problem. Now Lion zips right along - I'm not sure if it's quite as fast as VMWare 7, but it's certainly fast enough. 1) Switch to Console view (View-> Console View) 2) Turn on VM thumbnails (F8) 3) Turn off VM thumbnails (F8 again) 4) Switch back to your view of choice and enjoy
  7. I'm running into the same problem as sirmasterboy and the others: GUI performance is extremely poor in Lion under VMWare 8 using Zenith's driver. Logs and VMX are attached. - Intel i7 920 - 6 GB DDR3 RAM. - Windows 7 (x64) - Lion VM on a 500GB SATA II HDD - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 attached to a 1080P display LionLogs.zip
  8. Oh sweet sweet audio. The virtual Ensoniq was a {censored} to work with (and you've said as much), so this is the best change ever.
  9. Bumping this back to the top given that the GM is out.

    No dice on the GTX 580 I'm afraid. It's still locking up when SL tries to bring up the GUI.

    Just to follow up on my earlier GTX 580 post, what's the significance of the GTX 580 working in Safe Mode? My limited understanding is that NVGF100HAL still has to load even in safe mode, which means there's at least some acceleration going on?

    Thanks for the response. If it is a Chameleon matter, it's not going to be as simple as adding the device ID to Chameleon - I just tried that with no luck.

    So someone mentioned that the GTX 580 (GF110) is in the KEXT device IDs. What's the trick to getting it working? Everything is hunky dory with the GTX 480, but if I put my new GTX 580 in, I get a hardlock at boot.
  14. Very interesting. I've always assumed VMWare was going about audio emulation in a tweakier than it seems fashion, and this seems to back that assertion. Thanks for the update Zenith, and thanks for the hard work.
