      In VMWare Fusion 11.1.1, when creating old installers of OS X (Mavericks, Yosemite El Captitan), sometimes you get the above in Finder .. Two instances of your own internal hard drive/SSD even they both point to the same.

       

      This only happens when installing creating new installs and can be reproduced all the time when gong to File >> New and walking through the wizard. When it comes to selecting the image, if you select app bundle prior to Mojave you  the above.

       

      In all cases, after creating, when you relauch the same VM, sometimes if the issue  produced as well,  lesser fror Safe boot, and usually booting *into* safe boot and back to normal, 'temporarily resolves issue.

       

      I thought it was something to do at first with old Apple installers and Mojave, but since it only happens with VMWare Fusion, it could just be Fusion incompatible with older OS'S or something// References to application references in Mac.

       

      Can anyone else reproduce this if they have old installers lying around? in some case's "Remove from sidebar" on right click doesn't work either under VM is deleted.
