The answer is lummox. I can't believe that you guys didn't get this one. The word is right there in the list of synonyms. I just knew that as soon as someone bit shifted the hexadecimal the suffix would appear and give it away... there are only 4 or 5 words that end with 'MOX' in the English language with (lc > 3)

Yeah I know this is predominantly MS. But I'm moving all of my development platforms to VMware workstation - part of that is a High Sierra MAC os vm.
So the other day I was sitting there and decided to upgrade to VMware 14.1.6 and it broke my MAC vm - perpetual reboot cycle, logs useless. Good thing I didn't upgrade to my Workstation 15 license.... all licensed and paid for code, no cracks here.
If you've got any scars or other sage advice, I'm all ears - I need that mac os back. And I'm paying hard cash - ammo to JSOP or Meguier's for your dash on that beast, beer to Maunder, gin, hell, I don't care, etc. You get the picture.
Send me an email...
Here's the deal: vmware's logging is VERBOSE very meaningful to someone with the vm source code in front of him - maybe. 4k lines of log, and I don't see what Workstation is unhappy about...
I have posts out to vmware community forums and "insanelymac" or something like it. I'm betting on CP's crazies - come on, I know you are out there. This is likely some vmware bs, but I need that VM back.

The most amusing thing about this thread is that it passed moderation. You are essentially asking for support for your pirated versions of both Apple High Sierra MAC and your hacked version of VMWare/Dell workstation.
Your VMWare is broken because in order to make it run High Sierra some of the binaries in your VMWare folder had to be patched. If you are wondering why I know this... it's because I analyzed the 'hack' installer a few years ago checking for malware. I did not find any malware but it does patch some of the binaries in the VMWare installation folder.
