    "ZackehSoul" on YouTube has tutorials and links to VMWare images created for Mountain Lion and Mavericks (released, not Developer Preview).
    The ML image is a no-brainer. The Mavericks image needs VMWare modified before use. Instructions and modded files are in the download. They both run great on my computer.

    If you want to install OS X directly on your PC, then follow the links that Tito has provided.

    Hi;

    I have Mac Os X Mavericks installed on VMWare workstation.
    i was wondering if it is possible to backup an image of of osx via the disk utility and than restore it to another physical drive and than install a boot loader and kext mobdin kernel for amd and boot directly from the hdd instead of vmware.

    Are there any workarounds for virtualbox? Or is it possible to install now without modifications?

    Intel machines = Fairly Easy
    AMD Machine = PITA even in VMWare

    I even have a pre-made AMD VMWare image of OSX Lion and it won't boot

    does your motherboard support hardware and software Virtualization (VT-x and VT-d)
    if it does check your bios to sea if it is enabled . because i have a amd athelon X2 64bit dual core processor and all i needed was to enable
    Virtualization in the bios and than install the vmware unlocker for mac and it creates a virtual intel dual core processor and it is working great with Mavericks.

    in vmware what is your cpu and memory configuration ?
    also you might want to get either the mobdin kernel from leohazard sl or the amd kernel from niresh 10.8.2
    you can also try using qemu to install os x on an amd processor.

    good luck.

    Question when you reach the apple logo is this before the installation or after because you should try installing it from scratch without a prebuilt image or a vmdk. just download the retail iso and boot with nawcom mod cd.

    VMware tools does not fully on Mavericks, you can't change resolution :(

    I stick to 10.8 VMware image for now.

    Ive tried a few different configs, normally 8 cores & 4GB RAM, but I've tried right down to 1 core and 1GB and same issue

    Tried changing those options too, no dice



    Both, if I try installing from scratch it does the same thing, slightly different message but still about the CPU and tells me to power off the VM

    Tried with the mod CD, it just resets when I hit F5 to boot from the OSX ISO and dies at Apple logo again

    VMWare image just halts at Apple logo with CPU error

    I can try to make you a vmdk that will work on your machine but you will have to give me some time.

    @=)(= Are you tried manually set monitor resolution? I had to force it in VM-Settings-Display-Specify monitor settings.
    Auto resize not working. :mad:

    Hey! Heard about Hackintosh? :)Search it in Google.
    OS X Mavericks is easily obtainable since it was free, simply get it on the pirate bay website!;)
    Installing on PC is hard, really hard:(, You need compatible hardware, which is of course really rare!:biggrin:
    Installing in VMvare is easier, go for that. :D:D:D

    Yes. As far as I know you can install 32 bit OS X 10.6 into virtualbox. I have seen some with mountain lion. (And as apple says...if it can run M.lion it can run mavericks.)
