"cpu has been disabled by the guest operating system" on Intel i7 ivy-bridge

Recommended Posts

OK I am using VMWorkstation 8.0.3 and I have a new i7-3610QM cpu, and after following multiple guides and instructions to install 10.7.4 I keep getting the "cpu has been disabled by the guest operating system" error. I can post what ever files you need if you tell me what to post.

 

Thanks for the help.

The usual things would be useful:

 

1. How did you unlock Workstation?

2. Are you using a retail version of OSX?

3. Attach (DO NOT POST) copy of the vmware.log file.

I have attached my log

 

And the unlocker I am using is VMware Unlocker 1.1.0 by Dave Parsons 2011-2012

 

And as for the version of 10.7.4 I don't know I have 2, one that appears to be already installed the one from this youtube:

And thank you for the help.

 

Update: I am not able to get to the apple logo but it just hangs.

Ivy Bridge not supported by Apple. Will need modified kernel for OS X. Google and you can find it.

I have the same issue but with a 3570k on a Z77. Have you found a solution yet? Does 10.7.3 work for you?

Seems that for ivy bridge one needs to add

 

cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101"

 

as per this

After a long evening of trying many many different combos, I've found my new Ivy Bridge Z77 motherboard with i5 3750K will allow ESXi 5 u1 to install Lion but only if you start out as Mac OS X Server 10.6 64 bit with the CPUID changed as above. Migrating a previously working Lion form a Duo 2 Core setup didn't work. FYI, I used a previously imaged VMDK from the InstallESD.dmg in Lion 10.7.2.

 

So happy to get this working I did a password reset and both quizzes to let me post!

      Ciao a tutti,
      sono felicemente riuscito a installare Lion sul mio Optiplex 330.
      Funziona tutto tranne la scheda audio interna ma non importa perché vorrei installare una USB esterna: una Yamaha AG03.
      Dalle istruzioni questa dovrebbe essere installata su Lion senza driver e riconosciuta subito (http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/global/en/products/mixers/ag/manual/mac/index_en.jsp).
      Su un altro hackintosh sempre con Lion viene riconoscita perfettamente.
      Il sistema la vede, nel System Report, correttamente collegata all'USB ma da Audio Midi Setup mi dice "NO DEVICES FOUND".
      Temo che mi manchi qualche parte software per far riconoscere la scheda esterna.
      Ho installato i VoodooHDA ma mi hanno mandato in crash il sistema quindi li ho rimossi.
      Avete consigli?
      Grazie mille

      Hello everyone,
       
      I'm new to this forum, I'm really searching for some help with my "project" and hope some of you can help me out with this one!
       
      It's all coming down to a not starting "Finder"
       
       
      The full story,
       
      I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 (2006) a few day's ago. All stock, dual Intel Xeon 3Ghz, 5GB Ram and the stock video card (256MB). (Lion freshley installed)
       
      I wanted to upgrade to OSX El Capitain, and after a lot of research and a lot... yes a lot of trouble in making it all work I finally got it. I've thrown in a Geforce GTX 760 2GB Jetstream... couldn't wait to get cables for powering it, so I frankensteind it all with a second PSU. Installed Lion on a Samsung 850 EVO, and then followd a tutorial on how to install el capitain using Piker's boot. 
       
      After 12 hours non stop messin around it worked, only after some time the mac froze and rebooted. I noticed that maby Google Chrome caused this to happen, and when using Safari it would work without any problem. I even can play 4K flawless.
      But still after some time it would crash, I monitored the CPU and Ram Usage, but there wasn't anything crazy happening at those things.
       
      .. didn't really got the time to instal other apps. Then I found out Finder wasn't responding. It kept on crashing. I tried a lot of things... deleting the plist files, resetting PRAM, VRAM, Savebooting, deleting cache, Disk repair (Disk Aid)... nothing worked.
       
      Is this maby a problem with the bootloader (Pike)?
       
      I hope someone can help me out!
       
      Thanks in advance,
      Greetings from Holland

      I'm trying to install Mac OS X Lion onto a kinda old PC, the specs are:
      AMD Athlon X2 4450e NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE 3GB RAM I've successfully installed Snow Leopard on it, and then I tried OS X Lion which gives me "[ PCI configuration begin ]" and then it will give me "console 1024 x 768 @0xe0000000" if I add pci=off, I've tried Yosemite and Mavericks (and they give me the same results) but I'm trying to stay away from them as they probably don't support my graphics card, and weirdly, I've tried Mountain Lion which boots into the installer no problem but it doesn't show my hard drive, so i tried to install it onto a flash drive (which takes ages!) but then at the last moment it tells me that it was unsuccessful, so I try to boot into Mountain Lion and I get the same errors (except I haven't tried pci=off, but I really don't want to try again unless it's really needed.)
       
      Is there anything I can do or am I just stuck with Snow Leopard?

      I recently received an HP Pavilion A6400f with the ASUS IPIBL-LB mobo.  My brother keeps telling me to get a Mac so I thought I'd try to make a hackintosh using OSx Lion since both are from the same era. So far, all I've found are tutorials that all say "first get such and such from a previous install of OSx". If I had a previous install or access to a Mac I wouldn't need to try making a hackintosh. So, any suggestions or guidance? Hopefully, once I get OSx on, I'll be able to install Linux Mint and multiboot.

      Ciao a tutti ragazzie/e. Vorrei un vostro consiglio sul mio portatile in firma.
      Ho 4Gb di RAM in un banco solo, vorrei portarli a 8Gb. Sui vari siti di e-commerce ho visto che un banco solo da 4Gb originale costa di più che due banchi da 4Gb di altre marche.
       
      Voi cosa consigliate?
      Sono compatibili?
       
      Per adesso ho su mountain lion ma vorrei istallare el capitan.
      Avrò problemi?
       
      Grazie mille.
