Vmware + OSX 10.6.6 + updating to Lion HELP

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I have recently installed Mac osx 10.6.6 to my computer using vmware and it is running perfectly!!! I can do system updates, browse the internet, download from the mac app store, etc.

 

But i wanted more.

 

So i decided to go get myself a $50 itunes gift card and update to 10.7 Lion via the mac app store. When i click on the "Buy" button for Lion, i get a message stating: "We could not complete your purchase Mac OS X 10.7 Lion requires a Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, or Xeon processor."

 

The funny thing is, my physical computer is a Core i7. i even fiddled around with the processor and core allocation in vmware workstation and changed it, i went back into osx and it had changed it under System Profiler to: "Quad-Core Intel Xeon" for the Processor name.

 

So I am unsure what to do and need some help!

 

Here is a screenshot in vmware and osx of the system profiler: post-960858-0-13763300-1328511171_thumb.png

 

 

Thanks Alex

      This is the current version of VMware Tools for OS X / macOS from the VMware CDS repository for Fusion 11.0.3
       
      Please note: In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 onwards VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now, thanks to Zenith432 for the update.
       
      To check for the latest version visit http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/. The various VMware Tools downloads are located under the packages folder for each version.
       
      Instructions for extracting darwin.iso
      - Download the file above
      - Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar
      - darwin.iso is located in the "payload" folder

      I have the WiFi/Bluetooth chipset BCM943602CS and a Magic Keyboard, the Bluetooth module is connected to an internal USB port and I set the type to 255 (internal) in a custom SSDT.
      My Hackintosh is sleeping fine with darkwake set without any value in Clover Configurator.
      Only Problem is that it won't wake from sleep on key presses.
      I already tested this USB port with a normal keyboard and the result was that it wakes up my Hackintosh on key presses.
      The tiny LED on the WiFi/Bluetooth card also shines while sleeping.
      And in system settings the Bluetooth wake option is enabled, too.
       
      Has someone an idea where the problem could be or which additional settings I have to verify?
      Thank you all

      Hi all,
       
      so ive been trying to get the wifi working on my hackintoshed laptop for a full week now, but i have little to no experience with macs or hackintoshes.
       
      my wifi card is a BCM43142, and my laptop is a HP pavilion 15 p004na running Mojave 10.14.4
       
      i was told on another forum that this card did work on macos, but im starting to doubt it a little :)
       
      any help would be much appreciated,
      Corrin

      Hello all!
       
      I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working.
       
      I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing.
       
      Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud."
      FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music.
       
      HARDWARE:
      Intel Core i7-2630QM
      GeForce GT 525M (using integrated HD 3000 graphics instead)
      Custom Dell L502X A12 BIOS w/ UEFI support
       
      SOFTWARE:
      OS X Mavericks 10.9.5
      AppleALC + VoodooHDA for audio
      VoodooPS2Controller (trackpad kext likes to cause KP during boot, sometimes)
       
      Any possible fixes for this?
      Thanks in Advance!

      Hello all! Glad to be here!
       
      I've hacked my Dell XPS L502X with an install of OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 (vanilla install). All is good and all, except that there is no WiFi (planning on buying wifi dongle) and that there is no audio.
      The lack of internet irks me, but I can fix that at a later date. What I can't deal with is the lack of audio. I've tried everything, but there is no luck. AppleALC, Voodoo/AppleHDA, among others.
      Oh, if I have to, I can reinstall OS X, since nothing important is on the partition.
       
      All replies and answers are welcome!

      Thanks in Advance!

      EDIT: Thanks to Hervé, I've been able to get my audio working, and so can you! 
       
      All you need is... 
       
      A hackintosh that has the Realtek ALC665 codec (you can't change codecs!) 
       
      AppleALC.kext (latest version) 
      OR
      VoodooHDA.kext (again, latest version) 
      AppleHDADisabler.kext
       
      A USB flash drive (if you have no WiFi on hackintosh) 
      A secondary computer/way to put files onto the drive (again, no WiFi on hackintosh) 
       
       
      1. Store the files you need on your hackintosh
       
      1a. Download them straight thru your hackintosh
       
      1b. Use a secondary device to download them and store on a flash drive. 
       
      2. Open terminal on your computer and type "diskutil mount EFI" in said terminal. Of course, remove the quotation marks. 
       
      3. On your EFI partition, navigate to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
       
      4. Drag n' Drop the kexts you have downloaded on your computer to that folder. 
       
      5. Cross your fingers and reboot
       
      5a. (Optional) Suffer a kernel panic during boot because VoodooPS2 doesn't like you. 
       
      6. If all goes well, you'll have audio! 
       
      Guaranteed works for Dell L502X, however YMMV.
