Pesky "the guest operating system is not mac os x server" Error...

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been looking all over the place for a resolution to this problem, but the only ones I can find are the ones on VMWare Fusion for Macs. I'm running VMWare Workstation 7.0 on Windows 7 with an AMD CPU.

 

I am getting this error:

 

"the guest operating system is not mac os x server"

I've run the VMWare patch. Tried rebooting and re-running the patch.

Still no dice. Anyone have any insight on this problem?

And what to do to fix it on an AMD Windows 7 system running VMWare workstation 7?

 

Is it even possible to resolve this problem on an AMD CPU?

You have 3 options possibly that I can honestly think of that may help you as I am on an AMD as well.

 

1. Update Workstation 7.0 to 7.1.4 and then rerun donk's guest os patch

 

2. Find a pre-built snow leopard that has AMD/Intel Listed. I can use 10.6.6 it's almost 3gig in size

 

3. iAtkos S3 V2 also works for me-it's 10.6.2 but I've updated it all the way to 10.6.7 using legacy kernel's.

 

If you list more info on your specs I'm sure someone here could possibly help you.

I tried option #1 above and it worked. Thank you so much. I don't get that error any more.

But now I'm getting an error that says: "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. You will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point." So I'm still stuck. :-(

UPDATE: I tried it on a server at work with an intel CPU and it worked.

So my guess is that my AMD Phenom II Black Edition Quad-core is not good enough.
