Perfect installation of Beta 9 (19A573a), no more tricks needed. One problem with USB, iOS devices are not seen by the virtual machine with USB3 controller, but work if switched to USB2.

B9 and BootCamp on a separate drive can be now made to work.
- Follow the KB to set up: Turn off SIP, build VM from BootCamp disk, edit VMDK by locating the line starting with RDONLY 6 FLAT and substituting the whole line with RW 6 ZERO.
- Test and turn on SIP
After running and maybe failing the first boot, open Security & Privacy, go to the Privacy Tab, select Full Disk Access and allow VMWare and com.vmware.DiskHelper.
Restart VMware and it should work.
