My MacBook Air came with macOS Sierra, and I know that I can't install an older macOS on that (reference: How to install OS X 10.9 on a new Mac mini loaded with OS X 10.11), but I don't know why I can't even install it on VMware Fusion as VMware Fusion does show up OS X 10.9 as one of its Guest OS.

I want to install OS X 10.9 on VMWare Fusion but as I already said VMWare is not allowing me.

What I Tried and what happens:

I tried to boot with a DMG as well as a .app file of OS X Mavericks and it boots fine until I see a prohibited sign after some time and I can't proceed further. Also, I tried running it on my machine by burning the file to a USB, but as my computer is a newer make, it does not allow Mavericks to boot.

So, are there any workarounds so that I can boot OS X Mavericks at least in VMWare Fusion?
