There is a file on all newly-installed OSX86 PCs called "AppleTPMACPI.kext," it tries to find a TPM chip that is only on the real Intel Developer Machines. It uses all system resources trying to accomplish its impossible task. Here is how to delete it:

Navigate your OSX86 Mac to this folder: "/System/Library/Extensions/" Delete the file "AppleTPMACPI.kext" in this folder, reboot. Your computer will spring to life.

Look for the applehwsensor.kext this is a similar thing. Delete it.


Just tried this, and I can confirm that I've noticed a significant leap of performance under the newest VMWare Player, thx for the tip **Mat** :whistle:




P.S: Any other suggestions / tips to enhance performance will also be very welcomed :D

Does anyone know how to fix the pointer lag problem.


Im fine with putting up with application lag.


But the pointer lag just makes osx unusable.


Anyone know if there is VMware tools or a patch to fix this problem.
