Does VMware load properly on your system? Can you run other VMs?

It's not by accident that there sooo many different guides to using Mac OS X on Intel, and just because your friend's works doesn't mean your will. More than likely you'll need to find a VM that's proven to work not only on your MOBO but your CPU (environment) as well.

Chances are the VM has a Multibeast setup that just happened to work on your friends. On my install I waited until there was a proven guide e.g. http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=264&t=57962 I also PURCHASED the OS X.

Use Mac OS X VMware unlocker (see link below)

BTW - this borders on 'hacking' which is not allowed in this Forum...

Good Luck!

I download Securable and I ran it on one of my systems (Windows XP). It displays that "Hardware D.E.P. is Yes and Hardware Virtualization is Locked On", but VMware Player runs fine with Windows Server 2008 R2 VMs. Since you have an Intel motherboard, why not contact their support? They should be able to explain why Securable detects that Hardware Virtualization is Locked On. It may be because that motherboard doesn't support Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d).

the herboard does support Intel Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) because there is an option in Bios which i enabled also i downloaded my MOtherboard utility which checks that if the Motherboard supports VT or not and it showed yes still i dont know what the problem is or how to solve it

Hmm...I didn't look at your 'stuff' before and according to Intel your MOBO doesn't support VT-d and not all Intel CPU's support Intel Virtualization.

According to other info (see the links that I provided), it shouldn't be active for what the OP wants to do with VMware Player. I know that it sounds weird, but I can't test it myself to verify that claim.

I downloaded Intel utility program to check support for VT and it shows my MOBO supports VT
