  1. i had the same issue as you when running on my new X1 carbon with HiDPI display. luckily this is an issue in the normal mac world as well. from a terminal window: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true and then reboot the VM after it comes back up, go to System Preferences > Display and select the "Scaled" option. you'll see a new "HiDPI" entry. select this one for beautiful scaled goodness :-) cheers, wizdude

    VMware Unlocker for OS X

    I can confirm that VMware Workstation 10.0.2 running under Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit unlocks fine with unlock-all-v130.
  3. just as a quick followup to this problem - i used the evaluation version of UltraISO to convert the DMG images into ISOS fairly easily on my PC and I can now boot directly from those ISO images with no problems. i haven't yet done a full install, but the fact that the installer actually boots up and runs looks very promising you can grab a trial version (not sure how long it lasts for, but I only needed it for a few hours :wink2:) http://www.ezbsystems.com/ultraiso/ i've successfully converted my leopard, lion and mountain lion DMG's into ISO's. for reference, I did also try vu1tur's dmg2img but it only worked on the leopard DMG. the other ones came up with an "ERROR: Inflation failed". I assume these DMG's contain a format unsupported by dmg2img. the leopard DMG I converted using this tool had the identical size and MD5/SHA1 hash to the one I converted using ultraiso. cheers, wizdude
  4. workstation 9 doesn't appear to be able to boot from a DMG file, however. i have one machine with workstation 8 + 1.1.0 unlocker and I can build a new 10.7 VM and use the InstallESD.DMG from the Lion install mounted as a CD and it will boot directly and install the operating system. if I try the same thing with workstation 9 + 1.1.0 unlocker, I can can configure the VM but when it goes to start up, EFI doesn't appear to find any valid boot source. EFI shows: Attempting to start up from: -> EFI VMware Virtual IDE Hard Drive (IDE 0:0) ... unsuccessful -> EFI VMware Virtual IDE CDROM Drive (IDE 1:0) ... unsuccessful and it eventually goes into an EFI shell. I have an ISO for Snow Leopard that I took from my original media and as an ISO file it starts up fine. does anyone know an easy way to work around this? or am I going to have to convert my DMG images into ISO's? cheers, wizdude.
