It’s finally here,guys ; the all new OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.With more than 200 new features,this operating system is definitely an upgrade to Lion which was overall sluggish and buggy.But,there’s a problem – to run this OS,you first need to buy a mac which will cost you a fortune especially if you’re a teenager with no (son’t worry,you’re not the only one).Although,there is surely a way to get this beast (pun intended) running on your windows machine which surely costs less.
Now,again you surely need a well-off computer to run this.We recommend atleast an i3 processor clocked at anything above 2.0 Ghz (No confirmation regarding AMD machines yet,but you’re free to try it out yourself and let us know).Anything below that,I suggest you check out our Lion or Snow Leopard tutorials.With all that out of the way,let’s talk about what all you’ll need to run this.
All required downloads for this procedure can be here
If anyone encounters a virtualisation error,follow this guide and error 5 (access denied) errors can be fixed with this guide.
Special thanks to @ZackehSoul and SDT for their hard work.
That’s about it folks.Enjoy your macs and let us know if you have any issues!

Voila,We finally we have a way to get rid of the hardware virtualization error in VMware when trying to run any version of OS X. Thanks the CubeZ,we finally have a ‘pathcher’ available.The patches are still a bit ‘buggy’ but they do what they are supposed to do well.We got tons of comments on the blog post here and also on the video itself here about this.So,Simply follow the video and remember to subscribe!
This Patch currently works for the following Versions of VMWare Workstation –
- VMWare Workstation 7.1.3 (32/64 Bit)
