Keyboard & Mouse not working in Yosemite Virtual Machine

This post was originally published on this site

I’m trying to restore a Time Machine backup of an old Macbook Pro that was running Yosemite to a virtual machine in the latest version of Fusion.


It’s taken some time but I’m now at the point where I’ve restored the backup and it starts up ok.


However, the keyboard and mouse do not work once the OS has started. They work ok during startup, so I can go in to Disk Utility for example.


I’ve tried Bluetooth and USB keyboards but none work – they all also work ok on the Mac, just not within the VM once the OS has started.


I did make some changes to the VMX file to allow Yosemite to install, hardware version, board id and similar – not sure if this could cause an issue? Makes no difference if I remove them.

Anyone got any ideas?
