  1. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    I apologize if this is in the wrong topic. I have the following situation and wanted to see if it is common or not. I have ESXi 5.5 (unlocked with 1.2 unlocker) running on a middle of the road i5 system with 8 GB of RAM. I had upgraded from 5.1 in hopes of solving the following problem, but the system behavior seems identical. Whenever the Mac OS X 10.8.5 Server guest OS performs significant disk I/O between 2 attached USB drives, the entire machine crashes. Not just the VM, but the entire ESXi host, taking out all other guests as well. Linux and Win7 VMs can run for weeks without a hiccup, but Mac OS hosts will crash within 30 minutes as soon as a large amount of disk I/O begins (e.g., Time Machine backup.) Is this as good as Mac OS X can run under ESXi? Or is there something else amiss?
  2. ESXi 5 Mac OS X Unlocker

    Allegedly ESXi 5.5 includes support for Mac OS X 10.8.x. Yet my new 5.5 install failed completely at booting Mac OS X VMs until I reapplied Unlocker 1.2. Is this expected behavior? What is behind VMware saying it's compatible with 10.8.x? Did I miss something?
