Hi.

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?

Thanks

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. :)
