I do not have VMware 6 so I can not post a direct answer to your question. I believe the reference link given in your question has left out many steps that need to be taken in order for you to succeed. There is two previous answers posted here at Ask Different where VirtualBox was used to install 64 bit Windows 7 on older Macs. The links are given below. ...

Strangely, I think it's possible to easily change the icon on macOS in the Get Info box of the hard drive you've selected in Finder. Although you may have to disable SIP to do so. Additional steps may be required if you are on macOS Catalina 10.15, since the system files are now protected on a separate disk volume. I'm not sure about these steps as I'm still ...

I wouldn’t panic, but I would think how recent your backups are. The NVRAM stores where to boot so to bypass that, power off and hold the option key when you boot. If your Mac OS drive shows, select that and see how it boots. Once you’re back in macOS - use system preferences to change the startup disk or consider resetting NVRAM with the Command - Option - ...

You need to use the bcdboot command to create the boot files for each Windows installation in separate EFI partitions. Note: This answer assume Bitlocker has be disabled. In other words, the answer assumes the Windows NTFS partitions are not encrypted. Below is an example which closely (but not exactly) matches your situation. Here, I have already setup ...

You have to check with the manufacturer to ensure it works with the OS on the Bootcamp partition. There is no Bootcamp “compatible” hardware because Bootcamp isn’t an operating system, it’s functionality built into your Mac. So, you have to check to see if the dock, displays, and any other ancillary devices are compatible with macOS and Windows 10 (for ...

No wait, you can't use bootcamp like that. Bootcamp is designed to allow you to change your operating system while the computer boots. Nothing allows you to swap purely between operating systems that way. you can use software that runs Windows in OS X with hardware virtualization, a huge step up from the software virtual machines of old. There are three ...

This kind of depends on the monitors. For example, if you need the traditional Mac displayports, you would buy a Thunderbolt 3 Dual DisplayPort Adapter.

If you have the Windows 7 product key, then you should make sure you have the latest Windows 7 iso download. You can get this from Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files). I will point out that the Windows ...

As a follow-up: I ended up completely reformatting the harddrive without encrypting. Then I could restore the data from the time-machine backup.

The partition GUID of disk0s2 (DE94BBA4-06D1-4D40-A16A-BFD50179D6AC) is probably wrong. It designates the partition as a Windows Recovery Environment, which is the ugly stepsibling of macOS' recovery partition. Changing the GUID of a partition doesn't modify the volume format! A wrong GUID usually renders a partition unbootable though. It's rather unclear ...

In the Disk Utility app, Click the 'Partition' Toolbar button, then in the big pie chart in the revealed tab, click on the partition you want to erase, then click the minus button ('-') at the bottom of the chart. That partition will be deleted, and the other partition will be expanded to to include the newly-emptied space. If you're doing this by command-...
