  2. Hi, I have a OSX 10.13.2 High Sierra guest running on Win7 pro. The guest is only used to configure idevice with Apple configurator2. guest and host as the latest itunes version and driver. I use an iPhone 6 and 6S and it's working perfectly, my problem started when I got 2 new iphone8+ (and later while writing the post, using an iPhone SE, same problem), on the host machine, no problem at all, they work and they are displayed in itunes. When I connect to guest, the loop start and I have to physically disconnect the usb cable for it to stop, trying the right-click on icon and connect/disconnect host... not working, it give me a unknown error. I was running Workstation Pro 12.5, so I decide to upgrade to 14.1.1, same problem. I tried on the Player 14, same problem... BUT, once, only once it work and I was able to see the device in Configurator and apply the profile that I needed. I also have a WinXP and a Win7 VM, and they can connect to the iphone8, so look like it's not an issue with the host/vmware application... VMTools is up to date Set to USB 2.0, Use the PC USB 2.0 or 3.0 port, with or without a USB hub (all those options work with the iphone 6/6s) The "usb.quirks.device0 = "0xvid:0xpid" config been tested and not working I delete all the files in c:\users\vmware\... I tested a new fresh guest machine from scratch, same result (so I can get narrow out a faulty .vmx file) The result is always the same... loop reconnect/disconnect on the guest machine, I hear the "dong" sound on Win7 when usb device is connect looping with the idevice sound when it connect... This is the log file for the iphone6s with the connection working 2018-02-13T18:54:01.302-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Found device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx arbRuntimeKey:6 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3], connected to ehci port 0. 2018-02-13T18:54:01.302-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx arbRuntimeKey:6 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3] should already be connected And this is the iPhone8+ that doesn't work 2018-02-13T19:23:39.465-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Found device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx disconnected:1 arbRuntimeKey:8 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3], connected to ehci port 0. 2018-02-13T19:23:39.465-05:00| vmx| I125: USB: Device [name:Apple\ iPhone vid:05ac pid:12a8 path:1/9/0/9/2/3 speed:high family:vendor,audio,hid,imaging virtPath:ehci:0 instanceId:USB\\VID_0E0F&PID_0001\\xxx serialnum:xxx disconnected:1 arbRuntimeKey:8 quirks:slow-reconnect ownerdisplay:OS\ 10.13.2\ High\ Sierra version:3] should already be connected I highlighted the only difference between both.

  3. So I just got Yosemite up and virtualized in ESXi. However, I am using workstation as a console like the KB says to do after 6.5. So the benefit of the workstation is that sound can come out if you add the adapter. This works just fine with a window$ VM. (BTW the documentation says it shouldn't work) In the yosemite VM it just produces a white-noise static when the sounds should be played. This tells me that it is a driver issue, and should be able to work in theory. However, does anyone have experience with VMWare workstation and the sound in OS X? Thanks,
  4. I'm trying to setup macOS High Sierra VM's so that I can develop software for Mac without having to reboot so often. I managed to get High Sierra working in VMware Fusion 10, and am now trying to get it to work in VMware Workstation Player 14 (unlocked). However, the installer boot never finishes. It gets as far as the Apple logo and a little movement in the progress bar, then loops back to a black screen, the VMware logo, and back at the Apple logo, forever. Screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/tHJ94 Any tips on how to fix this? I followed several different online tutorials, even patching my VMware with the unlocker, specifying `smc.version = "0"` in the VMX, and so on, but the darn VM still has trouble booting. Also posting this to Reddit, Stack Exchange, tonymacx86, and osx86.net in case those communities can help, too!
  5. Hello there! I'm trying to install High Sierra in VMware Fusion for a command line driven Vagrant box, in order to make it easier to compile applications for macOS. I actually managed to automate macOS installation entirely with PC-compatible keyboard input in https://www.packer.io/, so that's pretty cool I guess. Unfortunately, the boot after SetupAssistant fails: Trace Installing: About 15 minutes remaining ... Installing on "Macintosh HD" ... An error occurred installing macOS. To use Apple Diagnostics to check your Mac hardware, shut down, press the power button, and immediately hold the 'D' key until diagnostics begins. Quit the installer to restart your computer and try again. Restart Screenshots System Specs Guest OS: macOS 10.13 High Sierra Host OS: macOS 10.13 High Sierra Hypervisor: VMware Fusion 10 Physical hardware: mid-2013 13" MacBook Air Configuration VMX: https://gist.github.com/mcandre/df4a69809afb8103ef37ae32371c6e23 ISO generation scripts, packer configuration, and VMX settings are available as a work-in-progress "macos" branch in my packer templates repository: https://github.com/mcandre/packer-templates/tree/macos Mitigation steps attempted I've already tried: Re-generating the installer ISO image. Re-running the packer VM build. Tweaking VMX settings. Disabling SMC (which results in a VM that never finishes booting). Increasing virtual RAM to 4GB. Specifying the virtual hard drive as a solid state drive. Using VirtualBox (unfortunately, packer sends the wrong scancodes to VirtualBox for macOS guests, so packer + macOS guests + VirtualBox doesn't integrate very well at the moment). Pressing 'D' during boot (no change in behavior, no diagnostics displayed). If anyone else has experience getting macOS to boot in VMware, let me know how the VMX configuration can be improved, or if some kind of SMC toggling intervention is necessary to get the thing to boot better. I've already tossed so many hacks and workarounds into the mix that I'm starting to run out of ideas I'm new to hackintoshing, so I'm not sure if I'm missing some critical VMX configuration, or perhaps if High Sierra introduces further complications compared to earlier editions of macOS. Or even if an alternative EFI bootloader (Clover?) is necessary, I just don't know. I'd prefer to install macOS with as vanilla/default a configuration as possible.

  6. Hello everyone I have a problem setting the virtual OS X to display the screen's native resolution(1600x900). When the machine first boots up, it displays the right resolution then after the logging in by a few moments the screen displays a wrong resolution(800x450 HIPDI) which is a quarter of the resolution. I have macOS High Sierra (10.13.1) on VMware Workstation 14 Pro version: 14.0.0 build-6661328. My laptop has i5-4310U CPU with HD graphics 4400 which has 128mb dedicated video memory and a 1600x900 screen. I have installed VMware tools that was created on 14 September 2017 and VMware unlocker version 2.1.1 made by DrDonk. When logging in the background isn't the blurred wallpaper and the dock isn't transparent as it should be, or at least from what I saw on the internet. Here is what I have tried up until now: 1) Changing the resolution from the system preferences. 2) Using sudo /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Tools/vmware-resolutionSet 1600 900 Which displayed this output: Requested resolution: 1600x900 Effective resolution: 1600x900 Without any result. 3) I tried setting the screen's native resolution in the Display settings of VMware, still nothing. 4) I also tried to change virtualHW.version from 14 to 10 but it also did not do anything noticeable. The only thing that changed is that the blurred wallpaper was in the background when logging in. One thing to note is that it runs correctly up until 1366x768. I think the problem may be that the OS tries to load kexts after the logging in that interferes with the VMware tools, but I am not sure or that there is a hardware limitation, but I do not know a way to test it. Does anyone know how to fix that?
  7. I've just installed High Sierra as a new install under VMware Wkstn 12.5.7 and installed VM Tools but it's not mounting any USB HDDs that I plug in. USB flash drives are mounted OK. The USB HDD is recognised as a device (see External USB 3.0 in the attached screenshot) but Disk Utility doesn't see it. I've closed and re-opened DU a number of times. I've tried VMware Wkstn 14.0.0 and the latest VM tools but still doesn't mount. Has anyone had a similar issue or now what the problem may be? thanks Webby
  8. Hello, I am attempting to setup a Virtual Machine for Mac Os Sierra and I am having some trouble setting up the operating system to boot on VMware. I had already tried CPU masking which made the kernel panic on the picture and without says the CPU is Disable by the Guest Operating System. I had tried researching this problem but everything dates back to Snow Leopard or it does not work for me. Specs: Intel Q6600 4 Gbs Ram P5G41T-M LX PLUS Motherboard GTX 1050 Ti Vmx file:

Can somebody help me with this?
  10. Hello to all, I have a problem with the installation of Os Sierra on vmware virtual machine. I see the error: "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operation system", and the O.S. doesn't start. How I can fix it?
  11. Hi, this tutorial is about running your physical hackintosh installation in Windows. It's not about setting up a new OS X VM. As always it's very simple once you know, but it however took me a while to figure out the settings, especially using IDE in the VM and using the Clover/EFI partition or not. Luckily, it turned out we have to skip it, so we can leave Clover (or any other bootmanager) untouched. What's the point? If you have to do tasks in Windows, be it mining bitcoins, 3D-rendering, gaming or simply work with a windows-only software, you probably at the same time miss your OS X. The advantages over a simple new virtual machine running with your personal setup are many: Imagine you can use all your data, listen to your iTunes library, use your installed and configured programs and work with your settings. It also comes in handy when you messed up your installation for some reason and want to conveniently fix it. And last but not least don't forget you save the 25GB minimum space for a virtual disk what is probably not sooo insignificant since (I assume) most of us already switched to SSDs and only a few may have picked the models above 500GB because they are still pricy. tl;dr Gain advantages by hooking up your existing Hackintosh installation in a VM and work in your personal OS X environment whenever you like, even under Windows. If you have High Sierra with APFS installed it will most likely not work (yet), because Paragon and probably VMWare don't support the filesystem (yet). That being said, let's get started: 1. Preparing Instructions - do all possible reboots as required while installing - install Paragon HFS+ 11 or above (buy or know where) - install VMWare Player (free for private use) - install Unlocker from Insanelymac (free) 2. in VMWare, set up a new virtual machine - choose "I will install the operation system later" next > - choose "Apple Mac OS X" and "macOS 10.12" next > - choose "Store virtual Disk as a single file" next > and next> - choose 5GB Maximum disk size (we delete it later) and pick "Store in a single file" next > - Finish 3. in VMWare, configure your new machine - click on "Edit the virtual machine settings" - delete your new 5GB virtual Hard Disk (SATA) - click Add... on the bottom, select Hard Disk - select SATA (IDE works, too but I'd prefer SATA in 2017) (UPDATED) - pick "Use a physical disk" - select your harddisk with your OS X installation on it and pick "use individual partitions" - now do not select your UEFI partition, select the partition with your OS X: Example: My Sierra is on my PhysicalDrive 3 which I selected before. As we all know, the EFI partition is always the first partition (0), so my OS X (and probably yours, too) is on the second partition (1). So I check partition 1 and click next and finish. - if all is set and done, close VMWare. 4. check your VMWare .vmx file - replace the green parts with your data and move to "C:\Users\YourWindowsUsername\Documents\Virtual Machines\YourVM-Name\" - open yourVM-name.vmx with the Windows Editor and add the folowing lines only if they are missing: smc.version = "0" firmware = "efi" Click save. 5. VMWare optimization I choose half of my physical RAM, maxed out the graphics RAM and choose half of my physical CPU-Cores in the VM settings. 6. Finalize (UPDATED) Go to your VMWare program folder, right-click on vmplayer.exe and under Preferences > Compatibility > check the "Run as administrator" checkbox on the bottom. And that's it! Screenshots for reference. Now you have your OS X install available in Windows, too. If it asks you for updating the VMWare Tools, click yes or install them with one of the tools in the download section here on insanelymac. You can also add other Harddrives to your VM. What will not work: VMWares unity-mode in Windows - it's not supported for OS X yet. Gaming, the graphic is slow-ish but enough for coding, office, music and all basic tasks.

  14. Can't boot into Hard Drive after Installation

    (sorry for my bad english, i speak spanish ) Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and I'm also new in the Hackintosh (OSx86) world. I tried to install OS X 10.10.1 on VMware Workstation Pro 12 with my AMD PC. Specs: AMD FX-8300 Eight-Core Processor 3.30GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB GDDR5 (Gigabyte) x2 Kingston FURY HyperX 8GB DDR3 1600MHz (a.k.a 16GB) Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P AM3+ Socket Motherboard When I tried to install it, I ran in some problems such as: - Booting into CD drive (ISO) without flags = "The CPU has been disabled by the guest system" - Booting into CD drive (ISO) with /amd flag = Kernel panic - Booting into CD drive (ISO) with /amd1 flag = Success - Booting into CD drive (ISO) with /amd2 flag = Success - Booting into CD drive (ISO) with /amd32 flag = Kernel panic - Booting into CD drive (ISO) with /amd64 flag = Kernel panic I installed OS X with the /amd2 flag, everything normal, until it froze when it was in "2 minutes remaining". I decided to restart it, but I cannot boot into the hard drive because there is no /amd1 or /amd2 flag anymore. I searched "AMD Kernel for OS X 10.10.1" in Google without having any idea on how to install it. But anyways, hope you guys can help me
  15. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/31-vmware-tools-for-os-x-darwiniso/ Please tell me, what is the difference between the 8.5.6 and 8.5.5 versions of the VMWare tools for OS X ? Probably by mistake, the changelog for 8.5.6 and 8.5.5 is the same. What is a real changelog between them?
  16. If you're a long time user and you've seen everything, please skip introduction and go to the Red part. Introduction I have decided to write my process of virtualisation of an already configured OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5) with apps and user data. Basically, I am creating a full copy of the system that would normally work as it works on Macbook Pro, but without network features. Why? The goal is to preserve outdated applications and working environment as it is now for future reference. Having an easy-to-handle virtual disk that could be booted ten years from now on a potential Intel 8-core (or quadruple that) system is what I have in mind. (Or maybe even now on a much stronger system, but it is NOT intended for web-browsing, iMessage and everyday tasks) I still haven't figured out everything, but I am getting there. (That's why I need some help). VMware looks as the best option. Having a vmdisk with turned off persistence that's laying on a few external HDDs is the way to go. I have done something similar to this: http://fortysomethinggeek.blogspot.hr/2013/03/convert-physical-mac-into-vm-guest.html (in short: booting Mac OSX in VMware, cloning previously created sparse image to new vmdisk using Carbon Copy Cloner., and then booting that disk) The model of Macbook Pro that is getting his virtual life: Mid-2012 13-inch After trial and error of few host/guest combinations, I got what I was looking for with Workstation Pro 12.5 on Windows with a Mountain Lion (10.8.2) image. Since I couldn't configure an USB 3.0 connection or VMware built-in sharing I used a workaround. (Both seem unsupported unless you're using Fusion, or another guest such as any Windows.) My workaround was sharing between Win 8.1 (Host) and Mac 10.8.2 (Guest) via Ethernet cable connected to a modem/router. The trick is to pick bridged option (or direct) in the virtual machine network settings, to avoid systems sharing the same IP address. Everything else is the same - creating a windows account with the same username and password as on Mac, then sharing the file to that user. It's funny how data goes out and comes back through the same cable but I got the speeds four times of a 2.0 connection. After the transfer I have shut down the machine, swapped the disks (virtually - from Disk2 to Disk0). Started it up - and it worked! I was surprised to see how well VMware handled the transfer. Mountain Lion (10.8.5) was running smoothly with everything in its place with half the power of how it usually runs (less RAM and CPU). Red part So what is the problem? There are few tells that the created virtual system isn't completely real to the original system. For example, few options were set to default, such as touchpad configuration, and launchpad looked the same as in 10.8.2. I suspect it might be the fact that I was running 10.8.2 first, or for the fact that CCC doesn't create a full copy with bootloader and recovery partition when creating a sparse image. What's even bigger problem is - authorization of half of the apps (serial key resets). Half of them work fine, half of them ask for my login info or serial number, while many of them are already very outdated and unsupported. If that happens in 10 years from now when I boot the image, I might as well forget about doing this. What I'm planning to do next: using real data from my MBP to spoof the system and ultimately all the apps. (I know this is frowned upon, but I am using it offline). One way is implementing data into vmx file, is there anything else to keep the virtual OS thinking he is inside my exact device (Mid-2012 13-inch)? I will be redoing a virtual disk image, then copying files for the spoof before the first boot inside VMware. Potential options: Creating a physical copy of Mac HDD with Filezilla to an external HDD and then booting it directly in VMware (not a fan of this option) Running Filezilla inside VMware, cloning Mac HDD to a new vmdisk, then changing options to Mac OS and booting it Doing this on a Linux host instead of Windows ditching VMware, and going for VirtualBox exploring a more direct option of converting physical drive into a vmdisk (with vSphere?) Using Migration Assistant or Time Machine Using VMware Fusion (bad experience) What do you think, is this even possible?
  17. Hi, I've just installed Sierra in VMWare from a distro and everything seems to be working fine, except for the graphics performance. I have the newest tools installed and I've tried using the beamoff app. That, unfortunately, doesn't work on Sierra, since Apple has started using Metal instead of OpenGL. Any ideas?
  18. Hello, Im trying to install macOS Sierra on a Virtual Machine using VMware on my AMD desktop, however there is no current support for such a machine using those prebuilt virtual disks that are all over the Internet. But i looked up and find that Bronya made a kernel patch for AMD processors(Still in beta), does anyone know how can i use this patched kernel on a Virtual machine?

  20. Hello. I am using VMWare Player 12 (Workstation 7.1) on Windows Server 2008 x64 (I know, irrelevant). The CPU of the system is an old Xeon 5150. I have masked the CPU in vmx file with the following value: cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" On an attempt to boot, I get the following kernel panic error: The SecurAble tool shows this: Is there any chance I could run Sierra on this hardware? Thank you in advance.

  22. I want to install OS X Snow Leopard via VMWare Fusion on my Mac running macOS Sierra. I made an image from my installation disk, made a VM, and booted it up. I got an error that says 'The guest OS is not OS X Server' I know there are ways to bypass this, but is there a specific guide that I can follow?
  23. I have scoured the internet for an answer to this, but no luck. When I try to boot into my OS X El Capitan Virtual Machine, I get an error (Pictures Below). I have tried to reinstall VMware, reinstall the Virtual Machine. I have used the unlocker provided by someone else, and installed flags to the text file. But none has worked.

  24. Having a black screen while playing video , even after installing the Perian codec, any suggestions? I'm running MacOS Sierra VMware image on Intel i7 4th Gen
  25. Hello! I finally succeeded. I have an old 80GB SATA hard disk which I use to experiment with Mac OS. I had a Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan installation complete with Office and other applications. Using Clover 3322 in iATKOS EC installer I managed to successfully boot it from within a virtual Mac in VMWare Workstation 10 (patched to support Mac OS). The SATA disk was connected to a SATA-USB adapter and then connected to the virtual Mac as a USB disk. I downloaded Sierra, but instead of creating a USB installation medium I stupidly tried to just upgrade by running the setup. The installation didn't succeed of course but while connecting and disconnecting the USB installer and the USB disk amd forcing several resets I finally screwed the partition and could not boot either in VMWare or natively in my PC. So I reinstalled El Capitan natively and then booted within VMWare. I successfully did all the upgrades up to version 10.11.6 and then downloaded Sierra again. This time I used Pandora's Box to create the USB installer. I booted the USB installer in VMWare and I installed 10.12 Sierra. For some reason it took a couple of hours, but it finally succeeded! It even made the sound and graphics work out of the box without having to install the VMWare Tools! Thank you for creating Pandora's Box! Pity I now have to reinstall all my applications...
