Yosemite Zone on VMware installation

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!
I'm trying to install Yosemite  on a VMWare Virtual Machine with the Yosemite-Zone.iso disc image.

I have VMware player on Windows 8.1 Host, and I installed the Unlocker 2.0.2.

When I created the virtual machine, I choose: 4096 MB of RAM (I have 6 GB on my laptop), 2-core processor, Apple Mac OS X 10.10 as guest operating system, a single-file stored 40 GB hard drive and obviously the iSO file. But when I boot the VM, it stucks like in the attached picture. How can I resolve? Thank you!!

Go to Seetings, Options, Advanced and disable boot with EFI instead of BIOS.

For anybody still having this problem, here is how I fixed it:

Find the path of the Virtual Machine (Default is C:\Users\username\Documents\Virtual Machines\name of virtual machine\)

Once you have the path, open the .vmx file in a text editor and scroll down until you find the line that says firmware = "efi" and change it to firmware = "bios".

Thats it!
