Need Help installing Mac OS X on AMD windows 7

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I've a PC with AMD processor and when I try to run mac os x 10.8 on vmware workstation I get the following error:

The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine.


After that, I tried installing the mac on my laptop which has intel i5 (windows 7 64 bit) processor and it worked fine and I didn't encouter that error at all.


I want now to install it on my pc. I've also tried version 10.6 and the same error came up.


I searched the internet and tried some of the easy solutions but none worked. And some solutions were complicated and I didn't understand them.


My pc specs are as follows:

processor: AMD Phenom™ II X3 720 -- 3.42 GHz

Memory: 4GB

Windows 7 64-bit


Thanks in advance

Mac does NOT support AMD so you would need to find a release with hacked kernel


If something seems too complicated, then maybe the task is not for you?


Also this section is for virtualization, so please post in a correct section
