  • After update of El Capitan, Fusion 8 will not open the Boot Camp virtual machine

    Greetings!

    I'm having a problem with the Fusion 8 since my update to El Capitan.   My Boot Camp partition is functional and I can boot directly into it very well - all my files and data are intact.   However, when I try to start the machine Boot Camp in a virtual machine within OS x, I get the following error:

    Operation not permitted

    Cannot open disk "/ Administrator/Users / / Library/Application Support/VMWare Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp/Boot Camp 2.vmwarevm/Boot Camp 2.vmdk' or one of the snapshot disks it depends."   Module 'Disc' on failed.   Unable to start the virtual machine. »

    Here's the skinny: El Capitan has changed something wise permissions to access data files on the Bootcamp partition.  VMWare said they were working to solve this, but in the meantime they had me do made me upward and short... just remove the entry of the virtual machine Boot Camp in Fusion and recreate it.   I recommend you save beforehand in case where, but this process does not affect the data on your partition, only one definition of the Fusion of the virtual machine and how you can access your score.

    From the F8 Advanced Boot Options menu, were you unable to choose:

    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    Your system sounds like it restarts to determine what he complains and then someone can help you to repair.

    This is why there is a disable automatic restart on system failure option...

    There is another option in the menu F8 Advance Startup Options:
