  1. This seems to be an easy upgrade. Upgraded to macOS 10.14 "Mojave" (on Workstation 14)... No trouble. Added in VMware Tools from VMware Fusion 11... No trouble. Upgraded to VMware Workstation 15 and re-ran the unlocker... No trouble. macOS still boots. Upgraded the VM to hardware level 15... No trouble. All good all around. (Still no graphics acceleration, that would be cool, but VMware has no reason to implement it on non-macOS hosts.)
  2. Workstation 15 is out today. Anyone brave enough to try it ...?
  3. I upgraded yesterday and it went fine. It's easy to do a no-risk check. Download Mojave but do not install it. Shut down your VM and back it up. Then boot it up again and attempt the upgrade. If it does not work, just go back to your backup.
  4. After upgrading to VMware Workstation 14 (with unlocker 2.1.0), I was able to upgrade my macOS 10.12 VM to 10.13 without any issue. (It failed before with Workstation 12, getting hung up with a boot failure after the upgrade.) I also upgraded the VM "hardware level" to Workstation 14 before the macOS upgrade, not sure if that actually matters.
  5. Same issue here. I am wondering if Workstation 14 is needed. (High Sierra is not officially supported on VMware Fusion until version 10, which corresponds with Workstation 14.) It may have to do with the switch to APFS, and the VMware EFI firmware cannot read that type of drive? Totally guessing here. I haven't tried Workstation 14, I'm waiting until the unlocker is properly released. (I actually did try it with the current code on Github and the VMware Authorization Service would not start after the patch was applied, apparently that is a known issue.)
  6. Sort of related... I tried installing the new guest tools from Fusion 10 (on VMware Player 12). Afterwards, my guest macOS VM was stuck in high-DPI mode so everything was really huge. Has anyone else tried the new VMware Tools yet?
  7. Works with Workstation 10. Wish they'd stop with the yearly upgrades, it's a bit expensive. :-P (Prior to version 8 they would offer a paid upgrade more like every two years, with a free "minor upgrade" in between...)
  8. Unlocker version 1.1.0 tested working on VMware Workstation 9.0.1 (and OS X 10.8.2).
  9. OS X isn't what I use Workstation for most of the time so I'll just wait for the changes in the tech preview to make it to the stable channel. :-)
  10. I used unlocker 1.1.0 to unlock the new VMware Workstation 8.0.4 and it is working fine. My version of OS X is still 10.7.3. I'm going to try to upgrade to 10.7.4 again and see if the new Workstation release includes the fix. I will update this post in a bit with the results. [Edit] It seems that 10.7.4 still does not boot (or I am not patient enough to let it finish). Sticking with 10.7.3 for now.
  11. Thanks for confirming the issue. I haven't had any trouble running 10.7.3 in VMware Workstation (8.0.2/8.0.3). I restored from my backup before the upgrade and I guess I'm going to sit on 10.7.3 until an updated version of Workstation is released and unlockable.
  12. Tried installing the OS X 10.7.4 update today and my VM wouldn't boot up anymore. Has anyone else tried it yet?
