    Exclamation Snow Leopard on VMWare Issues !

    Hey :

    I have a friend who has the hp pravillion dv6-2157 Laptop with Intel i3 processor and Virtualization enabled in BiOs yet he is having issues :

    1. A virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state. This would have caused a physical machine to restart. This can be caused by an incorrect configuration of the virtual machine, a bug in the operating system or a problem in the VMware Workstation software. Press OK to restart the virtual machine or Cancel to power off the virtual machine.

    2. When it works, it gives him OS not found although he has everything set up correctly. Using darwin.iso n all !

    3. Also it sometimes gets to Apple logo then reboots !
    On my Desktop as well as another friend's laptop it works just fine ! Same version ! It uses the 10.6.2 Universal image v3.6.

    Please help ASAP !

  2. Thanks Djones thanked for this post.

    I'm having the same issue. I have seen this error in so many forums but none of the answers have worked for me. Too bad, so close! The Apple logo appears to tantalize me, and then poof... that error. Anyone out there have this error and have any success? What should I be looking at? I have tried all the suggestions elsewhere, the VM log shows this, it appears to be the first sign of trouble on all the darwin/darwin-snow ISO's I have tried:

    Signature mismatch compared against what, I wonder? Should the ISO match a specific version of VMWare Workstation? Where else should I be digging to get to the bottom of this...

    Too frustrated at the moment to list out all the applicable settings I have tried / hardware configuration, I've wasted several evenings of effort, maybe when I cool down I will try and summarize...

    I found an answer!

    Basically you have to fool the MacOS into thinking you have a different CPU...

    Add the following line to your vmx file:
    cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101"
    The original post with a better description can be found here:

    hi I am having the same issue but adding that line does not work for me I now get a different error message I am using a dell vostro 3460 i5 3rd gen 8 GB of ram

    before I added that line I got this error message : The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. you will need to power off or reset the virtual machine at this point

    then I added the: cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" to the VMX file

    and now I get this error message: A virtual CPU has entered the shutdown state. This would have caused a physical machine to restart. This can be caused by an incorrect configuration of the virtual machine, a bug in the operating system or a problem in the VMware Workstation software. Press OK to restart the virtual machine or Cancel to power off the virtual machine.

    can any one help me with this issue please and thanks
