Tried the usual things mentioned on web, but v12 (forced) upgrade keeps falling over on boot with "The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine".
Host = MacPro 2019 + Catalina 10.15.6
Client = VMWare + Catalina 10.15.6
but v12 (forced) upgrade
How exactly was that forced?
Does the issue persist with other VMs, or just this one?
Can you post a vmware.log from a failed boot?
