    The message CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system, usually means that the unlocker was not correctly installed.

  2. blankRadek Reply

    Hello, like some Ryzen users, I have encountered a problem with ‘CPU Has been disabled by the guest operating system’. After a short research, I found that you should add these lines to the * .vmx file at the end of the file:
    cpuid.0.eax = “0000: 0000: 0000: 0000: 0000: 0000: 0000: 1011″
    cpuid.0.ebx = “0111: 0101: 0110: 1110: 0110: 0101: 0100: 0111”
    cpuid.0.ecx = “0110: 1100: 0110: 0101: 0111: 0100: 0110: 1110”
    cpuid.0.edx = “0100: 1001: 0110: 0101: 0110: 1110: 0110: 1001”
    cpuid.1.eax = “0000: 0000: 0000: 0001: 0000: 0110: 0111: 0001”
    cpuid.1.ebx = “0000: 0010: 0000: 0001: 0000: 1000: 0000: 0000”
    cpuid.1.ecx = “1000: 0010: 1001: 1000: 0010: 0010: 0000: 0011”
    and change Hardware compatibility to Workstation 10.x (right click on VM Machine> Menage> Change Hardware Compatibility).
    Rest installation is done like in this tutorial (Download, Install, Unlock VMware via Patch Tools, Create Machine, add to *.vmx line smc.version = “0” and so on)
    Also, need to mention that I tested this solution on VMware Workstation Pro 15 version 15.5.7 (to this version you need to use Path Tool in version 3.x) and my CPU is Ryzen 5 2500U and I don’t know that this will work on newer version or VMw Player

    Use VMware Workstation pro 15 and Macos Hight Sierra installed on Windows 7 64bit.
    When the installation is clicked on Power on this virtual machine is presented
    first the window of VMware and then the one with Apple’s apple and the progressive bar that starts to scroll.
    However, the VNware window is immediately reintroduced and again with the Apple apple again
    the progressive bar starts again from zero and the cycle continues to repeat without reaching the conclusion. Where should action be taken to remedy the problem or the normal practice of installing Macos?

    Hi there, Faiz Orz!
    Fantastic job! Yesterday I followed your instructions and emulated a Mac Sierra with VMWare, and then upgraded it to High Sierra, with its ‘tools’. It works perfectly.
    However, today I wanted to try it on another ‘Windows 10’ computer, following the same instructions, and I can’t get past the startup. The error is the classic one: ‘CPU Has been disabled by the guest operating system’.
    I added ‘smc.version =’0” to VMX.
    Both my CPU (Intel Core2 Quad Q6600) and my board (ASUS P5K-e) support VT and are BIOS-enabled.
    SecurAble says OK: 64 bit, Hardware DEP Yes, Hardware Virtualization Yes.
    I don’t know what else to do or check anymore.
    Any idea?
    Thank you!

      I know this is like 2 years later and may not mean anything anymore, but your issue is because this article only has the toolkit for Workstation 12 and 13. I tried this toolkit with workstation 15.5, and had the same issue. Do some searching online for your version then try to install the tools again.

    I upgraded from VMWare 12 to VMWare 14 Pro, and I cannot seem to get MacOS to show up. I’ve run the patch and made sure to enable Intel Virtualization in the BIOS. I also had an older VMWare MacOS Sierra image that still plays. I just cannot create the new system using this VMWare image.

    Was able to update successfully to 10.13.2 thru the App Store.

    Looks like you can’t upgrade this image 10.13.2.

    “If you installed a beta version of macOS High Sierra, the Fusion Drive in your Mac may have been converted to Apple File System. Because this configuration is not supported in the initial release of macOS High Sierra, we recommend that you follow the steps below to revert back to the previous disk format.”

      Make sure your quotation marks match the rest of the VMX file. I noticed when I copy pasted smc.version = “0” into the VMX it was “curly” quotes, which didn’t match the other lines. Changing the quotation marks worked for me.

I have the current release of VMware Workstation 12 Pro running on Win 7 Ult. x64, with virtualization enabled in the BIOS. Following your instructions, I get to the initial macos boot with a white Apple logo on a black background, then a Windows message box appears saying:

        My computer is thinkpad T460p and I think it should support macOS, as I’ve seen people hackintosh on T460. I do not want to partition my hard disk, so I prefer the VMware, but the VMware seems not supporting 3D acceleration.

      2. blankMukhtar Jafari Post author

        Yeah, 3D acceleration isn’t supported but you can install VMware Tools on the VM to get the most out it on VMware without 3D acceleration.

    Mac OS X is not supported with binary translation. To run Mac OS X you need a host on which VMware Workstation supports Intel VT-x or AMD-V.

      Hey dear, Alex you need to enable Virtualization Technology (VT) from your system BIOS to fix this, and If your system doesn’t support (VT), then you can’t install macOS.

      Yeah dear, You need to install VMware tools on macOS High Sierra and then click on the full-screen button from VM tab to get the resolution. It explicitly mentioned in the video guide: Updated: The video is removed from YouTube 'Sorry for the inconvenience guys'

        Thanks Faiz but it doesnt work, i tried vmware knowladge base also and no sucess… and yes i have the resolution avaiable in my desktop that i need… probably what we are missing is some other program to add memory for video and add resolutions… shame it didnt worked on my side…

        So here, I can’t guide step by step, but soon I will create a bootloader file and a step by step article. It takes much time so you can use tell that time the VMware tools to get the most out your mac.

    I have watched the steps clearly and executes as shown in the above steps. However, am afraid to say, got the following error. Kindly advise.
    Thanks so much in advance.

    VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vcpu-0)

    vcpu-0:VERIFY vmcore/vmm/main/physMem_monitor.c:1180

    A log file is available in “C:\Users\raka\Documents\Virtual Machines\macOS High Sierra\vmware.log”.

    You can request support.
    To collect data to submit to VMware support, choose “Collect Support Data” from the Help menu.
    You can also run the “vm-support” script in the Workstation folder directly.
    We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.

    Sorry, I have a little problem with a fullscreen mode. I have this thing (my screen resolution is 1440×900 and yeah I’ve installed VMWare Tools but it didn’t help)

    @Faiz Orz , inside your tools there are 2 iso : darwin.iso and VMware Tool.iso , what is the right one ? I tried the 2 but don’t have fullscreen…

    Thank You Guys,
    These instructions worked well, The original patch tools download asked for a password but the rar file in the link in the comments worked fine.
    I now have a mac working full screen on my XPS15.
    You were a tremendous help, thank you again

    Thank you but I did not need this to do anything with the problem I had, 3D acceleration of the video and full screen (1920×1080) I already had these tools. My vmware is unlocked then to install it 10.13 I started
    From 10.12 and instead of updating I did a new installation by creating another vmdk HD VHD but I have now resolved by installing another vmware tool (7)

                                 Many thanks bye bye
