This is an error from the virtual machine?

Did you use darwin.iso?

 

Don't know if this is still the correct method, it was a boot cd, to boot osx in a virtual machine.

 

Some information about it: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/223610-what-is-darwiniso-why-are-there-multiple-versions-of-it/

OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2) should run fine in Workstation 9.0.1, however you will need a couple of things, firstly make sure your CPU has VT-x enabled in BIOS, according to the Intel Web Site your i3 supports VT-x. Next install Donk and Zenith's "Unlocker" v1.1.0, finally use a retail version of ML, i.e. one downloaded from the App Store and converted to an ISO.

 

Plenty of help in the threads on this forum, see links below:

Don't create stories, ML works perfectly fine in Workstation 9.0.1

Enable VT-x & keep learning

Try this.

It should be NOT needed for ML at all, but might just work for you

Sebus,

 

Thanks for the input, out of interest this was originally created by myself and Donk, see link below, to resolve a problem with OS X 10.6.3 (Snow Leopard) and below and the then new (Mid 2010) Core i and Xeon 5600 series processors, the issue was resolved in 10.6.4 and above. I have seen some combinations of Core i processors and versions of OS X 10.7 (Lion) showing a similar issue which the CPUID mask also resolved, but had not come across the problem in OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

 

I wonder if it is a Core i3 specific problem, as far as I am aware none of the current Apple hardware runs anything below a Core i5. So it would seem Apple are putting processor checks and restrictions in to the latest versions of OS X, nothing new!

This !! Worked thanks !!

Glad the CPUID mask solved your problem, sorry I did not think of it originally.

I know it was you (I do follow here if not posting a lot!), it was just just easier to link to the other one, sorry

 

I will check how it works on my i3 3225 later & report back

Sebus,

 

Not a problem, I was not looking for credit, just thought the link of interest in this thread, and in particular further investigation regarding i3 processors running OS X 10.8.

 

Keep up the good work posting responses and solutions on this forum, I look forward to hearing your findings on i3, I only have access to i5, i7 and Xeon based hardware, all of which are used in current Apple products.

 

Cheers,

MSoK.

10.8.0 & updated to 10.8.2 work fine in latest Fusion 5.x on 10.8.2 host (even without unlocker - did not create VM, just copied it from another PC) on i3 3225 processor

, no issues
