    Mavericks Fusion 6.0.2 /dev/vmmon not found, display cannot be initialized, internal error

    Corben65 Lurker

      Hello,

       

      VMware Fusion 6.0.2 doesn't boot up any virtual machine. Following error messages occur (translated from german error messages):

      * /dev/vmmon could not be found, no such file or directory

      * monitor initialisation failed

      * internal error

       

      /dev/vmmon doesn't exist as com.vmware.kext.vmx86 failed to load, see below for exerpt from syslog.

       

      Already rebooted, repaired file system rights and manually uninstalled and reinstalled VMware Fusion 6. Followed the instructions from kb 1003484 (http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1003484). Issue still persists.

       

      My hardware: MacBook Pro early 2011, Model 8,2. OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Regards,

      Corben
