I would like to install OS X Yosemite in VMware Fusion 7.0.
If I select the DMG file my university is providing, VMware is unable to boot from the DMG file.
The image is a compressed DMG.
Properties: Encrypted: false Kernel Compatible: true Checksummed: true Software License Agreement: false Partitioned: false Compressed: true
Is there a way to make VMware Fusion boot from a compressed DMG?
I tried to convert to DMG to "uncompressed" or ISO with no improvement. I always get:
EFI VMware Virtual IDE CDROM Drive (IDE 1.0) ... unsuccessful
In the VMware log file I only see:
2015-08-12T09:44:42.586+01:00| vcpu-0| I120: CDROM: Connecting sata0:1 to '/Users/corti/Downloads/Yosemite (uncompressed).dmg'. type=2 remote=0 2015-08-12T09:44:42.587+01:00| vcpu-0| I120: CDROM: Checking initial physical media state... 2015-08-12T09:44:42.587+01:00| vcpu-0| I120: CDROM: initial physical CDROM state is 1 (sense)
