Re: Help with Virtual Machine
Please check to make sure that your OS X device has a (valid) Serial Number. Whether its real or virtual machine, the Serial must be less than 12 chars - otherwise, iCloud -based services like FaceTime and iMessage wont be able to sign in (or will hang-up at sign in attempt). Check this in your Macs About section.
Fire up your OS X guest and run the downloaded copy of Chameleon Wizard in the guest. We are not going to be using the Chameleon boot loader just using the wizard's capability to generate various identifiers such as serial number and board-id.
Click on the SMBIOS button
Select a model and other parameters to generate a spoof ID.
Now close down the guest ready for the next step.
Open the VMX file for your guest in a text editor and add the following lines:
board-id.reflectHost = "FALSE"
board-id = <board-id> <<==REPLACE WITH VALUE FROM PREVIOUS STEP
hw.model.reflectHost = "FALSE"
hw.model = <product-name> <<==REPLACE WITH VALUE FROM PREVIOUS STEP
serialNumber.reflectHost = "FALSE"
serialNumber = <serial-number> <<==REPLACE WITH VALUE FROM PREVIOUS STEP
smbios.reflectHost = "FALSE"
Make sure you do not have any duplicate lines or VMware will not load the guest and give you a dictionary error message. The "board-id.reflectHost " is normally added from the new VM wizard and set to trye so make sure you set it to false.
Save the VMX file start the guest. Hope that helps. Cheers.
