Windows 8 7989 in VMware Workstation?

Post by jw12321 »

I installed it and it went fine, however when it boots it fails with an error message:

Code: Select all

*** VMware Workstation internal monitor error ***
vcpu-0:NOT_IMPLEMENTED vmcore/vmm/intr/apic.c:1903
Please report this problem by selecting menu item Help > VMware on the Web > Request Support, or by going to the Web page "http://vmware.com/info?id=8&logFile=C%3a%5cUsers%5cJames%5cDocuments%5cVirtual%20Machines%5cw8%2d7989%5cvmware%2elog&coreLocation=

It's impossible to run 7989 in VMWare, since some of the kernel and HAL was rewritten in Win8 M2 and VMWare emulates some things in a strange way, to the point that Windows 8 M2 does not run at all in VMWare.

Plus a simple google search would've given him the answer. Ask something more complex next time, like the meaning of life.

Nice one LinuxLove ;)

Now for the Windows 7989 I would recommend using Virtual Box in this case yea i know its crappy you can't move things over other than using ISO's which is a real pain but its better than not having it work at all!

In any case I managed to make due with Virtual Box with all I wanted to do to 7989 anyway..

Given the fact that nothing is surprising in the tech universe if you know whats coming its actually quite boring to watch.

Nope. It only works in VirtualBox.

Today I have downloaded Windows 8 developer edition & tried to install Windows 8 on VMware Workstation 7.1, but it fails with below error,
"vcpu-0:NOT_IMPLEMENTED vmcore/vmm/intr/apic.c" Solution for above error is to wait for VMware Workstation 8 which is going to launch in coming days or to install Windows 8 under VirtualBox 4.1.
Windows 8 installation under VirtualBox is easy, Check below guide for more details,
