  • MAC OS X Mavericks Issue in VMWare Workstation

    I was running OS X Mountain Lion in my VMWare Workstation 10.It was running smoothly.But as soon as I upgraded it to OS X Mavericks released recently,it has stopped working.I just downloaded the 5.2 gb upgrade from the app store and after that tried to install it.It restarted,since then it's never been able to open.Only it shows is the apple boot screen which keeps on loading all the time !! I'm really fed up with it.Can you suggest me what to do in such a situation? I don't want to lose my apps and installed softwares!

    Thought that OSX isn't supported in an virtual environment?

        Virtualization of OSX is supported by the Apple EULA. But the current EULA doesn't support Mavericks virtualized yet.

        I doubt he'll be able to recover the OS but he can rebuild from scratch using the guide here:

          So no, it isn't supported... From this link: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/mic...rnalId=1000131

          The End User License Agreement (EULA) for Apple Mac OS X legally and explicitly binds the installation and running of the operating system to Apple-labeled computers only. Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Server, 10.6 Snow Leopard Server, 10.7 Lion client or server and 10.8 Mountain Lion client or server are fully supported on VMware Fusion while running on supported Apple hardware.

            Take a snapshot of your existing OSx before you try to do anything like updating the OS.
            You can always roll back to the snapshot so all your apps will be saved as weel
