To learn macOS, I want to install macOS as a Guest OS on VMware Workstation.
Host OS is Windows 10 and hardware configuration is i5 8th Gen with 1TB HD and 12GB RAM.
I did Google searched for Installing macOS on VMware Workstation and I found some links.
All links have similar steps and I have gone through steps explained in the link.
As an example, https://techsviewer.com/install-macos-mojave-vmware-windows/. After Step 7: Editing the VMX File, VDX file doesn’t open.
Please guide me so that I can install macOS as a Guest OS.
There are multiple versions of those kexts so you probably need to try a few. Also check what firmware version the card currently holds, then compare that with what the kexts you use actually contain. Rehabman posted detailed instructions and info on his related repo. Check those out.
the card itself is :BCM94360HMB
the bluetooth is BCM20702A0 according to system profiler
if i google the model + bluetooth related hackintosh issues all the results i see is people solving it by adding the exact kexts i added to my machine.
i did noticed it somehow connected to my apple watch already.
i tried connecting it to my test phone and it connected but connection was lost after 5 seconds.
There is no need to re-install macOS or change SMBIOS. YOur trouble are only Bluetooth related and that's what you need need to sort out. So, identify the Bluetooth chipset and look up for the right kexts thereafter if applicable.
i got a dell e6540 here with a core i7 and 16 gb of ram running mac os mojave.
i replaced the 2007 airport card with a aw-cb160h card wich should be 100% supported in mac os.
after install i noticed only 2.4 ghz worked so i tossed in the following kexts in the system folder (it didnt appear to be working when it was put in clover instead)
the kext are BrcmPatchRAM2 airportbrcmfixup and bcrmfirmwarerepo
after those the 2.4 ghz 5 ghz and bluetooth started working but no continuity yet.
connecting my bluetooth headphones work fine. but sometimes disconnects and distorts (using 3 very short antennas as my laptop's atennas does not fit the card without a dongle)
i did notice when i try to link my iphone x it wil connect for a second (tried bluetooth internet sharing too) and it discconects as "unable to connect" about 5 seconds after connection..
i tried changing my smbios version from a late 2013 to a mid 2014 macbook pro 15 inch with a matching serial number to the model but that does not appear to have fixed anything.
imessage works and so does recieving sms messages altho imessage seems to not always sync to the laptop (it worked on the old airport card exact;y like this too) also ignore the millions of google verification codes
if i try to use the continuity activation tool it reports as "mac os reports continuity as active already"
any ideas to what i should do?
i'm going to buy a macbook tomorrow so i can start working on reinstalling hackintosh on the laptop freshly but i suspect i wil run into the exact same situation as now.
thank you a lot in advance for your tips
