OSX on VMWare and Ahtlon xp 2400+

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,


I am try in to get OSX running in VMware . I got it to start up but it just stayes in the apple screen starting up for ever.


I have deleted the AppleTPMACPI.kext file from Shell, and i have disblaed floppy and Serial ports.


But neither helped me.


Is this because my cpu does not support "sse2". I dont know what is SSE but i downloaded a tool telling me that my cpu is "AMD Athlon 2400+" and instruction are "MMX(+), 3Dnow! (+), SSE"


Does i need a machine with a newer cpu to run OSX in VMWARE.


Can my problem be something else ?


Thx if someone can help.

No SSE2= no OSX86 in VMware. You need a newer CPU with min SSE2 or better SSE3


Thanks, i will buy a new one, or use my sisters computer :blink: .
