I'm trying to install High Sierra on Windows using VMWare Wrokstation Pro and the .vmdk found here VMDK ... sp=sharing
I create a new virtual machine, macOS 10.13, I delete the hard drive and add the provided vmdk,
I add smc.version = "0" to the .vmx file, but it cannot boot (EFI VMware Virtual Sata Hard Drive (0.0) ... unsuccessful)
What can I do?

Solved by converting the .vmdk to the newer version when asked by vmware and by changing firmware fomr "efi" to "uefi"
and adding smc.version = "0"

And I also added
cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101"

I got same think! :wtf:
thanks for your update!
Editing the file " .vmx", firmware = "efi" to firmware = "uefi" resolved the problem.
