    VMware Workstation 14.1.6 to 14.1.8 update and guest macOS 10.14.3 boot issue

      Dear VMware Community Members,

       

      My host OS is Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1 version 6.1.7601 and I was running VMware Workstation Pro 14.1.6 with the guest OS, macOS 10.14.3 Mojave successfully installed, running and booting up fine.

       

      I then tried to update to VMware Workstation Pro 14.1.8.  After successfully doing this, on starting up my macOS virtual machine, I received a similar message to "your computer was not shut down properly... either wait a few seconds or press any key to attempt to restart your computer".

       

      Either waiting a few seconds or pressing any key brings me back to the same screen and the whole process seems to loop.

       

      Questions:

      1.  Should I have to update my virtual machine hardware machine version number?

      2.  Is there any way that I can update my VMware version without affecting my guest macOS installation?  Any fixes/workarounds?

       

      Thank you in advance for your advice.
