Installing OS X 10.9 as a WM Ware 10 Virtual Host — 2 Comments

  1. There are still a few issues that I need to work out running OS X on VMWare. I have yet to install VMWare tools, so the screen resolution is limited to 1024/780, and I am not able to access my USB Web Cam (that did work natively under OS X).

    As soon as I work these out I will be updating the article, as these are basic functionality before you can have a successful Virtual Machine (I think.)


  2. UPDATE —

    I was able to determine that I had not actually installed the VMWARE tools, which is what was preventing full screen from working. I found VMWARE tool for OS X 10.9 at this site. http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/5.0.3/1040386/packages/com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar

    I now have mostly full screen (There are still 3 inch borders on either side of the screen, but better then before.. I will continue tweaking.

    I am able to get my Logitech webcam to work in Facetime IF I unplug it and plug it back in once the guest OS is loaded. This of course is not optimal, as I webcam should be available all time time. I will keep experimenting.
