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!

    • Hi guys I've installed Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 on my PC who has the following specs: CPU: FX-8850 GPU: R7 260X MOBO: 990FXAUD3 REV 4.0

      I installed yosemite zone 10.10.1 without any problem and successfully installed the ethernet drivers with the PKG i found in the downloads section of hackintosh zone, I wanted to update to 10.10.5 to install the R7 260X drivers which i can download from the site but now when i enter my bootflags: npci=0x2000 and PCIRootUID=1 and I choose my ssd from chameleon bootloader it boots up and I can see it starts to load stuff when i put -v  but then the screen goes black and the system just reboots. Pls tell me how to fix thanks in advance.
    • Hi DAFFY,   Yes. High Sierra is actually installed on a Z270-F from Asus ROG. Everything's good with it.
    • Dear Community,   First of all I would like to apologise for my horrible English knowledge.   Well, I have one main problem with my hackintosh.   The first and most annoying problem is gIOScreenLockState 3. I've just tried some kexts but still this problem. Now, if I start without -v I just get black screen.   Thanks for reading,   TheXeno      
    • Can anyone specify the best or minimum NVidia GPU for Yosemite OS? Can someone list it? including the best GPU that can be supported with the nvidia web drivers. Does GT730 is supported? I only have DDR3 slot for my motherboard.
    • Thank you for your immediate response :)
