  1. Do you guys have a way of getting full resolution out of VMware tools in Mavericks? Using 6.0.1 VMware tools. I'm stuck at 1024x768.
  2. Ah ok....it says in this post that they do boot DMG: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/290949-how-to-install-os-x-108-mountain-lion-and-os-x-109-mavericks-in-vmware-workstation-910-or-player-56/?do=findComment&comment=1936143 I am pretty sure I was able to with 10.8.5.
  3. Anyone tried the OS X 10.9 GM in ESXi 5.1 U1? I can't get it to boot from the InstallESD.dmg. 10.8.5 had no problems booting from InstallESD.dmg on the same box.
  4. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    What would be the proper way to upgrade without it being a hybrid? I ask because reading here: http://www.vladan.fr...de-to-esxi-5-1/ It says that pressing Shift + R at the loader screen would bring you back to 5.0. I usually upgrade via SSH so if there's a better way that would make it more unlocker friendly I'd like to know. Thanks Donk!
  5. HNAK - thank you! Are you guys able to sleep/wake with this new kext? I know WoL isn't working (yet - Lnx2Mac announced he's updating his driver and finally releasing source code!) but just does a simple sleep and wake work?
  6. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    Donk, How did you get Mountain Lion up and running? I've updated, used your unlocker, Mountain Lion gets further than it did before (past the root device error) but now I'm getting a: ACPI_SMC_PlatforumPlugin::pushCPU_CSTData - _CST evaluation failed I've tried it with both smc.present = "TRUE" and smc.present = "FALSE" Thx!
  7. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    Awesome, got 10.7.2 Lion Server installed via the USB method. 2 quick things.... 1.) Restore BaseSystem.dmg to a vmdk seems like it should work but I always get "Still waiting for root device" booting with -v npci=0x2000. Is there something I'm missing for reinstalls? 2.) Anyway to have a higher resolution without passing through a graphics card and installing Chameleon? Would love a resolution higher than 1152x864. Also, saw in another VMware thread that there might be 3d support in workstation? Any chance that could happen here too?
  8. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    Thanks dude, I found the cli after I posted this. I think I'm going to need to do it that way since I'm not running a vCenter Appliance or Server and the update manager appliance requires it.
  9. Product: ESXi 5.0 469512 CPU: Intel® Xeon® CPU E31230 @ 3.20GHz 10.7 USB stick via vSphere Hi Donk, Applied your patch for 469512, rebooted, started up a VM for 10.7. I ran the EFI command line and started it like so boot -v npci=0x2000 This works. I get to the spot where it would boot into the gui and it just freezes. It's a white screen with a beach ball. Have you ever seen this before? Attached are all required files. Thanks! http://cl.ly/2h0L1Y1t1T2R2L0M2o0E/Files.zip
  10. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    Donk, First off, THX! Secondly, any idea on how to update to build 474610? I've got a zip but not sure where to go with it from there. Thx!
  11. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    USB appears to be built in. I have an nVidia GT430 in this box. When I run ioreg -lw0 | grep AICPMVers Nothing gets returned. This is for the Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L. Here's the DSDT I'm using: sendme.zip
  12. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    MaLdOn - thx for your hard work!! Can you tell me if the patches now have any Lion sleep fixes built in? My Lion hackintosh won't sleep
  13. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Oh I know how to make HDMI audio work. It's just that the DSDT I gave you the other day doesn't have a GFX0 or PEG section because I didn't have a videocard in at the time (used onboard). When I go back and re-capture the DSDT with the video card installed, I don't want to bug you about editing the DSDT. Is there a motherboard in your DSDT Auto Patcher that I could use that would be close to the Asus P5E-VM HDMI?
  14. DSDT Auto-Patcher

    Hi MaLd0n, I'm getting a new videocard (GT430) for my Asus P5E-VM HDMI. Thanks for fixing my DSDT the other day. I want to edit it to plug the PEG stuff in for HDMI audio. Is there a motherboard in your DSDT Auto Patcher I could use that's close to this one? I just don't want to bug you again. Thanks!
  15. Vanilla AppleHDA v1.9.9?

    Extracting from the combo updates isn't working. Can someone paste a vanilla AppleHDA v1.9.9? Would be much appreciated, thanks!
