  1. Donk, what a pity for all of us... What should we do without you?
  2. Also not when the final version of Workstation 11, which is currently in beta, will be released?
  3. Me? I give feedback to the community: Read my post and you see a path to the solution. Isn't providing this better than a "google it, stupid!" hint - in a forum that is made _from_ users _for_ users? Apart from that, I DID my own search and found the solution in the meantime. I did NOT waited for someone to help, but did it by myself. Of course, just being a Noob is not an excuse. But how could I know how specific this problem is? I have no idea about Mac or developer stuff. Hence, asking a question for something I do not know of is not having done something wrong. If so, you should ban all questions here, make this forum read-only and forbit any questions about BTW: Your argument googling would get you the answer much faster than posting also applies to the post of besweeet, so he is to blame as well Nuff said about his, back to topic - period.
  4. Thank you for your fast reply . That _really_ helps . I never ever would have thought of this by myself. How could I be so stupid ? Genius' like you are the one that keeps communities like this alive. * Edit * Other NOOBs like me who do not like to ask a Genius like besweeet for assistance, can find the solution there: http://www.mcvsd.org/tips/powerteacher/osx_unidentified_developers.html. Hint: The Ignore List in your forum account settings is your friend to get rid of _helpful_ posts from certain forum members like posts from besweeet @Zenith432: Awesome work, thanks a lot .
  5. Question: When I try to execute guestd_patches.pkg or VMsvga2_v1.2.5_OS_10.9.pkg in my 10.9.1 guest, it is refused with the hint that the file is not from a certified developer How to get rid of this?
  6. Hello, after installation VMware Workstation 10.0.1 on my Windows 8.1 PC (Intel VT-X is supported, according to the Intel Processor Identification Utility) and installing Donks Unlocker 1.20, I tried to install MAC OS X Mavericks on a freshly created VM, selecting "Mac OS X 10.9" as Guest OS. But I stopped already when trying to start that VM - with the error "OSX is not supported with binary translation error" How can I solve this error to successfully perform a fresh install of Mavericks? Setting the Guest OS to anything else should help, I read - but to what? Please help. *Edit* I found the solution: In BIOS, VT-X was already enabled, as was Trusted Execution Protection (or a similar setting in BIOS). After I disabled that protection setting, the binary translation eroor when booting up the OS X guest was gone and I had no problem of installing Mac OS X successfully. Maybe this solution can help other users that are alsso facing the binary translation error although VT-X is enabled in the BIOS of the host machine.
  7. Sounds reasonable. I used Donk's Unlocker 1.1.0 for my VMware Workstation 8, so this will allow selection OS X up to version 10.7 - got it . Yes, this seems better than performing an upgrade. But: Will I face any problems (maybe from Apple), if I use my OS X 10.6 VM and my existing Apple ID for purchasing OS X 10.8 in the App Store, then create an ISO file from that and do a fresh install of OS X 10.8 on "another" Mac (in my case, another VM) ? Thank you very much for all your detailed explanations and your kind support. I really appreciate that. This is my first time although I'm not totally new since I read several times about and - but now I like to practice
  8. Hi MSoK, excellent - thanks a lot! That was exactly what I was looking for. If I go to the App Store from my 10.6.8 VM-Mac, I only see the option to purchase 10.8, but not 10.7 ... Is there a "hidden" way to still purchase 10.7 ? Or can I chose 10.8 - with regards to running under VMware Workstation (although I tend to use 10.7 instead) ? That sound like to route I will go. I'm not quite sure if I understood everything you described ("Go > Applications > Install OS X Mountain Lion ... > Copy "InstallESD.dmg" > Paste Item to Desktop."), but I will try
  9. Hi folks, hopefully MSoK, Donk or someone else who is knowledgeable can help me: Currently I have Snow Leopard running fine under VMware Workstation 8. To experience some of the new stuff of 10.7 or 10.8 (like iBooks Author) I would like to upgrade my existing VM - or fresh install a new VM with 10.7 oder 10.8 . VMware Workstation 8 should remain intact. An upgrade to WS 9 might come in the future, but for the time being, WS 8 is the platform I use. Question is: How easy / hard is it to upgrade my existing VM with OS X 10.6 to 10.7 or 10.8? What type of problems I will face? Which version - 10.7 or 10.8 - is better for my VMware environment? Your help is very appreciated.
