No such fortune. I made the configuration change described and rebooted the VM with ESXi 5.5 in it, then attempted to start the OS X VM. I get the same behavior, where the advance icon begins to spin for possibly ten seconds or so, then halts, and the sneak icon turns into the beach ball. I double checked that the .vmx charge for the OS X VM on the ESXi host besides had the ICH and SMC flags and it did have those flags set ( not surprising as the Vsphere customer did show OS X 10.7 64 bit as the chopine ). FYI for anyone attempting to replicate, you have to extract BaseSystem.dmg from the InstallESD.dmg ( it is a hidden file ) and choose that as what you mount as the install media. You can besides follow instructions available by searching the web for creating bootable 10.9 install media from the App. I see these lines in the .vmx file on the ESXi horde : guestOS = “ darwin11-64 ”

smc.present = “ TRUE ” ich7m.present = “ TRUE ” I used the force EFI on following boot choice and booted OS X in long-winded manner from the EFI prompt by executing the following commands from the “ unsupported ” EFI Shell. hop on fs0 : fs0 : \System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi -v When I do that I get a issue of errors before it stalls : BootCacheControl : unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist : 2 No such file or directory then some serial larboard low-level formatting stuff then : SMC : :smcReadKeyAction error : smcReadData8 failed for key $ Num ( kSMCKeyNotFound ) SMC : :smcReadKeyAction error : $ Num kSMSKeyNotFound ( 0x84 ) fKeyHashTable=0x0 SMC : :smcReadKeyAction error : smcReadData8 failed for key LsNM ( kSMCKeyNotFound ) … etc ( I have to retype these so I ‘m skipping a few as this is well replicated ) … previous Shutdown Cause : 0 SMC : :smcInitHelper error : MMIO regMap == NULL – fall back to old SMC manner SMC : :smcGetKeyInfoAction ERROR WKTP kSMCSpuriousData ( 0x81 ) fKeyHashTable=0x0xffffff8013054000 SMC : :smcGetKeyInfoAction ERROR WKTP kSMCSpuriousData ( 0x81 ) fKeyHashTable=0x0xffffff8013054000 ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin : :start – waitForService ( resourceMatching ( AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement ) timed out init probe start DSMOS has arrived [ IOBluetoothHCIController ] [ start ] — completed Beachball.

here is the vmware-8.log, and I think the direction it ends is a spot weird. Before I see the beach ball appear, these are the last logarithm entries, and no new ones appear once the beach ball appears. It looks as if the VM itself is deciding to stop some hardware in the middle of executing. All of this appears _before_ the beach musket ball. 2014-07-21T15:47:40.354Z| vmx| I120 : SVMotion_PowerOff : not running Storage vMotion. nothing to do 2014-07-21T15:47:40.358Z| vmx| I120 : USB : Disconnecting device 0x10e0f0002 2014-07-21T15:47:40.359Z| vmx| I120 : Destroying virtual dev for scsi0:0 vscsi=8196 2014-07-21T15:47:40.359Z| vmx| I120 : VMMon_VSCSIStopVports : No such prey on adapter 2014-07-21T15:47:40.360Z| mks| I120 : MKS PowerOff 2014-07-21T15:47:40.360Z| mks| I120 : MKS weave is exiting 2014-07-21T15:47:40.360Z| vmx| I120 : USBGL : closed arbiter connection 2014-07-21T15:47:40.361Z| vmx| I120 : scsi0:0 : numIOs = 0 numMergedIOs = 0 numSplitIOs = 0 ( 0.0 % ) 2014-07-21T15:47:40.361Z| vmx| I120 : closing disk scsi0:0 2014-07-21T15:47:40.361Z| vmx| I120 : DISKLIB-VMFS : “ /vmfs/volumes/53cbf104-d7ecab9b-d714-000c29dacc03/OS X Server/OS X Server-flat.vmdk ” : closed. 2014-07-21T15:47:40.362Z| vmx| I120 : SVMotion_PowerOff : not running Storage vMotion. nothing to do 2014-07-21T15:47:40.368Z| vmx| I120 : actor : asyncOps=199 maxActiveOps=1 maxPending=1 maxCompleted=1 2014-07-21T15:47:40.368Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:1201 ] : VMAutomationPowerOff : Powering off. 2014-07-21T15:47:40.378Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:3964 ] : VMAutomation_ReportPowerOpFinished : statevar=1, newAppState=1873, success=1 additionalError=0 2014-07-21T15:47:40.378Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:3983 ] : VMAutomation : neglect ReportPowerOpFinished because the VMX is shutting down. 2014-07-21T15:47:40.392Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:3964 ] : VMAutomation_ReportPowerOpFinished : statevar=0, newAppState=1870, success=1 additionalError=0 2014-07-21T15:47:40.392Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:3983 ] : VMAutomation : neglect ReportPowerOpFinished because the VMX is shutting down. 2014-07-21T15:47:40.392Z| vmx| I120 : Transitioned vmx/execState/val to poweredOff 2014-07-21T15:47:40.392Z| vmx| I120 : VMX idle exit 2014-07-21T15:47:40.392Z| vmx| I120 : VMIOP : exit 2014-07-21T15:47:40.397Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:849 ] : VMAutomation_LateShutdown ( ) 2014-07-21T15:47:40.397Z| vmx| I120 : Vix : [ 40707 mainDispatch.c:799 ] : VMAutomationCloseListenerSocket.
