My desktop computer basic configuration is Processor: AMD FX 8320, Motherboard: Asus M5A97, HD: WD Black, RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3 16GB, and Graphics Card: 2GB Saphire 5450.

VMware Workstation 12.5 is installed in my desktop computer.

I would like to run OS X 10.11 El Capitan as a Guest OS on VMware Workstation.

Please let me know and guide me. Regards GNS

    Please search before posting questions. It literally took me less than a minute to find VMware's compatibility guide. Questions like this that are basic customer service questions are off-topic. – tubedogg Oct 25 '16 at 20:02
  • @GNS If you rephrase your question - remove any reference to non-Apple hardware - and mention that you want to run VMware Workstation 12.5 in a boot-camped Windows (i.e. a Windows on Macs), your question will be on-topic here and not against any SLA/EULA. – klanomath Oct 25 '16 at 20:23

Per VMware's compatibility guide, macOS (OS X) is not able to be installed as a Guest OS in Workstation.

On a side note, doing so would be against the OS X license agreement, since it prohibits running OS X on non-Apple hardware.
