    Unable to install OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) Developer Preview on Fusion 8

      I've done this on a separate partition previously, but thought I'd do it on VMware Fusion for convenience on this machine, a new MacBook Pro 15" Retina running 10.10.4.

       

      Selecting to create the new VM from an installation disc mounts the OS X 10.11 installer as a second HD, and booting runs (at first not too badly, then VERY slowly) through the boot process, black screen with a white apple and white progress bar, until the progress bar is 100% an hour or so later — keep in mind this is for booting the installer only — and then...nothing. Even leaving overnight (so eight hours later) makes no difference.

       

      Everything else on this machine (16GB/SSD/i7) is lightning-quick, so I'm a little stumped. Any ideas?
