It seems to have left behind a kext named After upgrading to OS X El Capitan (10.11) when it was released, I had been generally pleased with the new version but there were a few quirks – like random beach ball pauses – that made me think the 10.11.1 update would address some of them.
Thus when I was notified that it was available, I dutifully upgraded… I reset the SMC ( which was then used to reset permissions on my user folder. I reinstalled the operating system over the Internet. Using Terminal accessible in Recovery Mode I found several crash logs located in .
With Oracle’s Java 8, there’s been some confusion as to whether Java 8 runs on Mac OS X 10.7.5.
I give particular credit to Talyn’s post in that forum for giving me the clue to use the ISO image instead of the DMG, and for the Ensoniq audio driver link.
Before you begin making Now that you’ve gotten Snow Leopard installed (you do have it installed, right? Leave the retail ISO mounted in the VM, and you should be able to reboot at will with no issues.
Well, there wasn’t much required for this feat: Installing Mac OS X 10.6 (a.k.a.
Snow Leopard) into a VMware Workstation 7 virtual machine.
I took a look at the latest one and it had the following details about the crash.
Spoiler alert, this also ended up being a dead end, but I’m posting it because the only other place on the Internet it exists is a deleted Apple Developer Forum post that I was able to view using the Google Cache.

Workstation 7 appears to have greatly improved support for the Mac operating systems to the point that installing Snow Leopard into a virtual machine is much easier than it was with Mac OS X 10.5.6 under VMware 6.5.2.
In fact, in this version (I’m using 7.0.0 build-203739), you can install VMware Tools yourself, and enable sound!
Here are a few final things to do: I must say, compared to the hassle of getting Leopard running in VMware, this was streamlined and painless.
