Mountain Lion GM iCloud Fix for ESXi !


After few weeks battling with iCloud and Mountain Lion GM, it has been figured out ! See below for a fix.

Download VMWARE Workstation from VMWARE.COM

1. Extract efi bios from vmware-vmx.exe by opening it with 7zip

2. Look in “.rsrc/BINRES”. extract the 6021 file, rename it to EFI64.rom.

3. Copy EFI64.rom to where the vmx file is located for the vm on the vmfs data store

4. Add line efi64.filename = “./EFI64.rom” to your vm vmx file

Thats it. Start the machine and sign in to iCloud.
