Help with Mac OS X VM

Post by Neb » Tue Jan 31, 2017 2:04 am

I'm trying to run Mac OS X Yosemite (Legitimate, legal copy) on a VM and it screams at me for not having an intel processor. Can anyone help?

Try Going into the BIOS and changing things. also if your on VMware its not going to work. use Virtualbox instead

Also remember to enable PAE/NX and disable EFI, otherwise macOS probably won't run

It can work in VM Ware but you need to use this software called unlocker for it to recognize it.

I've had major issues with getting OS X to run in a VM because I have an AMD processor as well. I know that some of the older versions have been patched for use on AMD systems, but the newer ones might still give you trouble.

Cool! I didn't know they were able to get Yosemite working.

First check the obvious stuff like, have you enabled hardware virtualisation in your physical hardware's "BIOS"? Give us a little more information on what you've tried so far to fix the problem, otherwise it all turns into a big back and forth of "did you try this?", "what about this?", etc.
