windows VMWare AMD OSX cpu disabled by guest OS

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm running Windows 7 on a amd A8-3800 APU CPU with workstation 8.0.2

 

I have tried different vmware ready lion images that were advertised as amd/intel images but just keep getting "cpu disabled by guest operating system"

 

I've attached my log file and vmx file in a zip in hope that this could help find a resolution

Mac OS X Lion.zip

I am also having the same problem on amd a8 , vmware workstation 8, and mac os x LION.

 

Please if someone can help to resolve this issue it would be great.

They were falsely advertised from what i've observed,as nobody managed to run them.It is possible to run it,just needs a lot of work and i didn't have the nerve to do it in VMWare but..check this out.It is my OSX Lion 10.7.2 running in Virtualbox,just did it to demonstrate. 1. hard drives must be SCSI drives. 2. if you are trying to run 10.7.3,you need SCSI kexts from 10.7.2 ... 3. you must edit your vmx, find the line defining the firmware and put "BIOS" instead of "efi" . Then install with a method of your choice.. be it a leo/snow leo distro and then installing on the other partition on the virtual drive or whatever.Some standard kexts apply ofc.

hey thanks for the reply, sorry for long reply from myself..... do you by chance know where I could get scsi kexts from? and maybe a guide on what to do?

I'm running VMWare 7.1.4 workstation on windows 7 x64 on a 4 proc dell precision workstation laptop.

 

I've used albert's unlocker to successfully create a bootable vm of snow leopard, however everytime I try to upgrade it to mountain lion (I needed to run xcode 4 and 4.2 only runs on lion apparently)

 

everytime I do the upgrade, we get to the reboot, and get the dreaded "Cpu has been disabled". Ive done this with a clean vm, and with an old one.

 

I'm sure this is getting to be aFAQ question, I've read through all the posts I can find, most of them are for ESX5 or Workstation 8 with regard to lion.

 

Has anyone got lion under workstation 7, if so, how ?

 

Chris

 

My proc is listed as intel core (quad) 2 Q9100 at 2.2.6GHz

I gave the vm's 4 G of ram, and plenty of disk.

    • Nice @yapan4 then we can join forces to make this as good as possible.
    • I had a weird situation, after running great for a while: yesterday I did a reboot and got a KP. Turns out the AstekFusion2Adapter kexts were causing the KP, strange thing is I didn't recall applying any update or a like.  I had to boot with the USB installer, mount the EFI partition to delete the old AstekFusion2Adapter kexts and replaced with the patched version contributed by despeinao. I'm glad the system is working again, not having to reinstall OSX.
    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie   Ho creato un configplist , se vuoi provare , dovrebbe essere pulito da ogni impurità , se funziona dovrai adattarli tutte le tue personalizzazioni x il boot ..... config.plist.zip
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
