Download OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Developer Preview 4 VMware Image and Run It on Windows 8 Computer
OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview 4 was released for developers as build 12A239. To download Developer Preview 4, registered developers will need to log into the developer center and retrieve a download code which can be used within the Mac AppStore. Apple’s OS X Mountain Lion version 10.8 is the ninth and next major release of OS X, Apple’s desktop and server operating system for Macintosh computers.
Apple has hinted at WWDC2012 that Developer Preview 4 was close to the release candidate, and then announced that OS X 10.8 will be available to everyone through the Mac App Store next month for $20. Though DP4 is the most stable beta release yet, it still has a fair amount of bugs and is therefore only appropriate for developers to use.

OS X Mountain Lion DP4 VMware Image Changelog
- Apple dropped support for 32-bit mode in DP2 of Mountain Lion, so make sure you keep the VMware Settings flagged as “Mac OS X 10.7 64-bit” otherwise no bootable medium will be detected. We are currently working on a workaround for this.
- Comes with direct download links as usual, should be faster this time.
- Completely Vanilla build. Drivers are purely patched Apple files.
- Continued new packaging for smaller download.
- Fresh installation of 10.8 DP4, everything was fixed during installation.
- Make sure VT is turned on in your BIOS, if available.
- No comment on AMD systems. Same applies as previously mentioned here.
- Reasonably quick boot time, about 1 minute 15 seconds on average.
- Recommended you run on the latest version of VMware, as that’s what it was tested on, and apparently fixes Apple logo stalling.
- Several driver patches to allow as best a universal build as possible.
- Snappier system. Clicks receive response almost (if not) instantaneously.
- We uploaded an updated VMware Tools to our Mediafire folder here. Hopefully these should work better than in the last 10.8 image.
Note:We don’t encourage downloading Apple software via file-sharing / torrent sites and run it in an virtualized environment under Windows. This guide is for informational purposes only. If you likeOS X Lion, Get a Mac. It’s against the EULA for Mac OS X to run the OS in a virtual machine. The EULA for Mac OS X Server and Mac OS X Server/Client 10.7 allows you to run the OS in a virtual machine, but only inside OS X on an Apple hardware. This method is completely for testing and learning purpose.
