Lenovo T440p Windows 7 Image under VMWare Fusion

Hello,

I have created a image (VMX) of my Lenovo T440p using the tool "VMware  vCenter Converter Standalone Client" version 6.2.0 build-7348398.

 

On my Mac Mini running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.2 I have installed VMware Fusion version 10.1.1 (7520154).

 

I can install the virtual machine using the image created and the machine is booting fine. However, when I try to login, the system seems to not get the "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" combination with the result that it is not possible to login. I have tried all different options incl. "Ease of Access" from the Windows Login Menu and the "Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete to virtual machine" function of VMware Fusion.

 

It seems like I am not the only one having this problem sind the internet is full of comments going in this direction (e.g. https://communities.vmware.com/thread/487963).

 

The solution for this problem seems to be to uninstall or deactivate the "Lenovo Keyboard Driver". However, if I look at the settings and the drivers installed on my lapop, it seems that there are only Windows native drivers installed. I cannot see any other drivers which are directly related to the keyboard. I have installed all recommended drivers from the Lenovo System Update Tool though.

 

My question:

Has anybody here faced the same issue and found a solution for it ?

 

Thanks

  Uwe

Hi, 

 

I experience exactly the same issue with Lenovo Yoga (with Windows 10). Did you find out a solution ?

I finally disabled all synaptic drivers including lenovo software (keyboard and mice) I found and it worked.
