    VMWare Player Help


    Trying to install MAC on my Win 8.1 PC
    But I want to install it on another HD Drive I have in my PC which I created a new partition for.

    VMware only detects my primary hd and when I try to add the partition I made when I click ok it gives me an error.

    Can anybody help out with this?

    MAC? Do you mean OS X? I don't know if VMware Player even supports it. Don't think so.

    EDIT: OK, guess it does. Back to question, you should be able to see all drives available during setup of the guest system. Have you assigned a drive letter to the partition? Is it formatted?

    EDIT2: Here is install guide VMware Guest Operating System Installation Guide

    EDIT3: Back to my original response. You need an Apple computer to run any kind of OS X guest.

    Jimbo45, I see you lurking. I butchered this reply.
