It's not supported and I don't believe it's going to work.

Welcome to the Community,

Please provide some details, like your Host OS/version, the VMware Player version, the Android installation image/iso that you are using (if possible provide the download URL), and attach the VM's current vmware.log to a reply post.

You say that the VM deosn't boot. Can you please explain this? Doesn't it come up at all, or is it stuck at some point in booting?

Maybe How to Install Android 6.0 Marshmallow (Android-x86 ) on PC using VMware Workstation Tutorial [HD] -... will help.

Try the live boot, VESA mode.
