Hey guys,

i successfully installed Sierra 10.12.5 in VMWare. Now there are updates out (10.12.6). After updateing it it stucks on rebooting. After reading a lot of faqs I know that I have to change the kernel for amd.

But how do I do that? I could not figure it out unitl yet.
How can I access that part from Windows 10 inside the vmdk? I tried to mount it and access it with TransMac but failed somehow.

Are there also any other files I have to modify?

Has anyone a tutorial how to sucessfully update a macos in vmware with AMD CPU?

I searched here the tutorial, amd development and sierra section but did not find any solution.

Yours

dont do it thru the appstore ....download combo update 10.12.6 from apples website ...whilst browse to System/Library/Kernels and make a backup of your kernel ....

 

once its downloaded mount dmg install update ...dont restart  when prompted.... now open above DIR again and copy your backup init ... done.... now you should be able to reboot with 10.12.6   ;) if the kernel for 10.12.5 somehow will not work ull have to wait for bronya to cook a new one or read for workarounds ..but in 8 out of 10 cases older kernel work with newer updates ...good luck
