It could be the major update to original 10.10 rather than 10.10.1 and 10.10.2 updates.

New Photo app, New Emoji, more i Cloud options, Google 2-step verification and more changes are included in the OS X 10.10.3 update.

While writing this post, the update is available as public beta only, but surely this method will work for final version too.

The desktop virtualization software VMware workstation 11 had been used for this demonstration purpose.

This post shows that updating the earlier version of Mac OS X 10.10 to latest 10.10.3 works fine on VMware virtualization software on Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 computer.

Since our earlier guide to install and run Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite on VMware workstation uses the vanilla kernel (the original kernel from Apple), the upgrade to 10.10.3 on VMware Hackintosh worked well without any issues or kernel panics.

Let us see the way of upgrading to the latest version.

The Mac OS X 10.10.3 comes with several improvements and changes.

Upgrade can be done with combo or individual updates.

Better check the requirements, that means which earlier version is required for particular update.

Usually the combo update will have the all necessary previous updates from the major release which is Mac OS X 10.10 Mavericks.1) Make sure you are having the Mavericks OS X on the VMware workstation which is installed with Vanilla kernel. It was upgraded from Mavericks pre install VMware image to latest version.

You will be needing to unlock the VMware workstation to be able to install and use Mac OS X as guest Operating Systems on VMware with Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 computer.
