How To VirtualBox VMware

Download Mac Virtual Machine Image for VMware and VirtualBox

Written by John

When you hear the term Mac Virtual Machine, this refers to the ability to be able to run Mac OS through a Virtual Machine. This Virtual Machine can be installed on a Windows desktop and Mac. Virtual Machines are available from providers such as VMWare and Virtualbox and are free to download and use.

Before you can run macOS in a Virtual Machine first, you have to download a Mac Installer. This can be downloaded from the internet; once this has been done, you’re going to want to create an installer image or an ISO. ISO files can be run in your Virtual Machine and are used to install macOS. All of these files should then be contained within a Virtual Disk Image which will have the file extension .vdmk or .vdi depending on whether you’re using a VMWare or a Virtualbox machine.

However as much as this may sound simple to set up for those who don’t have in-depth knowledge when it comes to computers and operating systems, it can be quite the opposite. That’s why the virtual image that you need to run in your Virtual Machine has already been pre-installed and set up ready for you. This means that you can start using macOS through your Virtual Machine in no time at all.

What is a WMware Image?

VMware is a provider of virtual machines that can be used to run macOS. A virtual image for VMware will have the file extension .vmdk which is an abbreviation for Virtual Machine disk. This format of the file is a virtual hard disk that can be used to run your Virtual Machine and to run macOS through your VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion. You can also run .vmdk files with either VirtualBox or Parallel Desktop which will get on to a bit later. This image will then require processing power so you can choose how much to allocate.

What is a VirtualBox Image?

VirtualBox is an alternative to VMware when it comes to choosing which Virtual Machine you’re going to want to run macOS on. When we are talking about virtual images in VirtualBox four different types of images are accepted by VirtualBox. These are .VDI or Virtual Disk Image, .VMDK which as we’ve already mentioned is the VMware virtual image file format, .VHD which is a Microsoft Virtual Hard Disk and finally, HDD which is an image file for Parallel Desktop. When you’re creating a disk image on VirtualBox, you have two kinds to choose from, a dynamically allocated hard drive or a fixed size one.

Download Mojave VMware and VirtualBox Image

Mojave is the fifteenth instalment of the macOS operating system and brought many significant changes to the platform including various applications from iOS, the mobile operating system developed by Apple. These apps that were previously only applicable to mobile users can now be used on the desktop operating system. You can also run macOS Mojave using either a VMware or a VirtualBox Virtual Machine even if you’re on a Windows Desktop.

High Sierra was the fourteenth instalment in the macOS desktop series and the predecessor to macOS Mojave. It was named as such referring to the High Sierra Region in the state of California; this is in theme with other versions of the OS, namely Snow, Leopard, Mountain Lion and El Capitan and was released on September 24th 2018. It can be run through a Virtual Machine by installing and running the Virtualbox image.

The main intention behind this project and the primary purpose was to be of assistance to developers who wanted to learn how to use macOS and learn Xcode but don’t have a Mac computer. This opens up the possibility of being able to run Mac OS on a Virtual Machine even if you have a Windows Desktop at absolutely no cost at all. Each time you will have to create yourself a new user on the virtual machines macOS. This image means that users who are new to computers can follow these instructions.

  • Hi, I’m trying to install Mojave on Windows 10 x64, 1809 version 17763.529. Intel (R) Core (TM) CPU i7-8700 CPU 3.20ghZ via VirtualBox 6.0.8. I followed the tutorials without success. Are there special specifications for this configuration?

  • After I added the image to Virtualbox, the system keeps restarting in the UEFI Interactive Shell. How can I solve this?

  • After years of sporadic attempts to get Mac OS running on my HP Probook 4540s, I finally gave up, and then found your guests. Now I have High Sierra running under both VirtualBox and VMware Workstation on a linux machine. I prefer the VMware model as I have managed to get it to full screen. (Full screen with VirtualBox is apparently 1280×1024, and I have two broad black lines on my screen one on either side of the guest window.). However, what I can’t do is increase the memory from 2 GB to 4 GB and I can’t get sharing working. With memory, I turn off the guest, enter VMware, edit settings, change memory from 2GB to 4GB and exit. But the change won’t fasten. With shared folders, I just haven’t been able to get anywhere on the VMware machine, and the directions I find on the net don’t match my setup. Both are much easier in VirtualBox, but I want full screen to mean full screen on my 1366×768 monitor.

    I’d be very grateful for any suggestions, either help with VMware and my two problems there, or help to get full screen under VirtualBox. I’ve googled both without success, not least because I’m not supposed to run a Mac OS guest under linux (Ubuntu).

    • Hi. I’m making a tutorial about bootloader for VirtualBox, help you fix resolution. And you should use a SSD for Virtual Machine.

  • Hello I have a problem I have followed the steps to be able to make the virtual machine work, but the machine is frozen when it shows the BSD line, attached screenshot

    Thank you.
