Create a macOS/OS X VM on VMware ESXi 6.5 & VMware Workstation 12.x
Create a macOS/OS X VM on VMware ESXi 6.5 & VMware Workstation 12.5.2 Pro
Running a MacOS/ OS X virtual machine is not anything new and has been supported for quite some time, as long as you are running said VM on a supported hypervisor with Apple Hardware. But many of the “Non-Apple” users in the world would not be able to take advantage this without owning some type of Apple Computer. Luckily, there is an alternative method to running a Mac-based VM on non-apple hardware-based VMware ESXi and/or VMware Workstation for Windows! In this tutorial, I am going to show you just how to do so. Please keep in mind that the methods described in this article are not supported nor endorsed by Apple or VMware in any way, so please use at your own risk.
Before we can begin, there are a few tools required to ensure this works flawlessly.
- macOS Sierra installation media in .iso format (You can use an older OS as well but for this demo, I will be installing macOS Sierra 10.12.3)
- This media will have to be created as the OS comes as an .app by default.
- This link has a good tutorial for creating said media.
- Unlocker Utility
- Current Stable version 2.0.8 works up to OS X Yosemite on ESXi 6.0 and Workstation 11
- Version 2.0.9 RC adds support for macOS Sierra on ESXi 6.5 and Workstation 12.x
- Type 1 Hypervisor (ESXi) or a Type 2 Hypervisor (VMware Workstation)
Ready? Here we go! I’ll start by showing you how to create a macOS Sierra VM on VMware Workstation 12.5.2 Pro….
VMware Workstation 12.5.2 Pro
- Make sure that VMware Workstation is installed but not running.
- Extract the contents on the Unlockler 2.0.9RC.
- Open a command prompt and navigate to the extracted folder
- Run win-install.cmd. This will patch your VMware Workstation to unlock the capabilities to run a Mac OS. It will also download the latest VMware Tools (darwin.iso) for macOS into the extracted directory.
- Launch VMware Workstation and create the shell VM
- When choosing the hardware compatibility, you can optionally change this to version 10 so that you do not need to manually edit the .vmx file after the shell has been created.
- I am going to leave it at version 12 and manually edit the .vmx file afterwards. Continue creating your shell by following along…
- Now that we have the shell created, we still need to attach the ISO to the VM. Click on the CD/DVD (SATA) option on the left side in the Devices pane. Once in the settings, select the ISO image.
- Next, navigate to the directory that houses the virtual machines files. Edit the .vmx file with your preferred text editor. I personally love using NotePad++. Scroll to the bottom of the text and add the following line. This will enable the VM to boot up.
- If you opted to change the hardware version to version 10 in the earlier steps, disregard this and move on to the next step.
- At this point, the VM is ready to be powered on to install macOS Sierra. I will cover the installation steps further down in this tutorial, but first let me cover the procedures for enabling this on ESXi. I will be showing how to do so on ESXi 6.5a (Build 48872370)
VMware ESXi 6.5a (Build 48872370)
- For ESXi we first need to copy the unlocker utility to a local or shared datastore. You can accomplish this by using vCenter, ESXi Host UI, or WinSCP. For simplicity, I opted to use WinSCP and copied the folder into a newly created “Tools” folder on a local datastore. You can also take this time to upload the .ISO to the local datastore for use later in this tutorial.
- Now that the files have been copied, open a SSH connection to your ESXi host, and navigate to the unlocker directory.
- We can then type “ls” to view the contents of the directory.
- Next, we must make the installation script executable. I also like to make the uninstallation script executable as well. Do so by running the following commands.
chmod +x esxi-uninstall.sh
- Typing “ls” again will now display the (2) scripts in green text, indicating that they are now executable.
- Run the installer script by running the following command
- The script will only take a brief moment to run, afterwards, a reboot is required. Once it has finished type
- After the ESXi host has restarted, connect to the ESXi Host UI and begin building the shell VM by following along.
- Now that the shell VM is created, we need to go back into the VM’s settings and attach the .ISO that you uploaded to the datastore in a previous step.
- At this point, the VM is ready to be powered on to install macOS Sierra! Unlike with the VMware Workstation instructions, there is no need to change the hardware version to version 10 or manually modify the .vmx file.
- In the next section I will cover the installation steps for MacOS Sierra.
Installing macOS Sierra
**The following instructions apply to both an ESXi and Workstation built macOS VM**
- Start by powering on the virtual machine and opening the Remote Console view
- Once the VM has booted the .ISO, you will be presented with this screen. Click next and then go to the taskbar and open Disk Utility. We need to create a partition to install macOS onto.
- After the partition has been created, we can actually start the macOS installation.
- After the VM has rebooted, we can continue the installation/configuration of macOS.
- Finally, the macOS VM is ready to use! For the finishing touches, it is recommended to install VMware Tools on this VM. When we ran the installation script at the start of this procedure, it downloaded a “tools” folder inside of the unlocker tool folder and inside it contains the darwin.iso which is used to install VMware tools. This should be the latest release of VMware Tools 10.1.0. Optionally, you can always download the tools from VMware’s website.
- In order to install the VMware Tools, we first need to eject the mounted install media. Afterwards, connect the CD/DVD drive to the darwin.iso file.
- Once the VMware Tools (darwin.iso) is mounted, double-click the “Install VMware Tools” package to begin the installation. After it completes, reboot the VM for the changes to take effect.
Optional TweaksAdjusting Screen Resolution
- Be default, the macOS VM will only support (1) resolution natively, 1024 x 768.
- If you’d like to change this to support a higher resolution for say…a larger monitor, please download the following file on the macOS VM. Once the file has been downloaded to the “Downloads” folder in the VM. Open the “Terminal” application and navigate to the folder. We need to make the script executable, just as wel did earlier with the unlocker scripts.
chmod +x vmware-resolutionSet
- Now we can run the script and specify the desired resolution. In this example, I am going to choose a 1440 x 900 resolution. Do so by running the following
- On the ESXi-based VM, I did notice that it does not set a resolution higher than 1176 x 885 while in the Remote Console. But, the VMware Workstation-based VM does indeed set the desired resolution.
Disable Beam Synchronization to Improve VM Performance
- Download the following application and place it in the “Applications” folder. Double-click it to launch the application. Afterwards, add it to the user’s “Logon Option” so it runs every time at logon.

[Guide] Install OS X 10.9 Mavericks on VMware Workstation with Windows 7 or Windows 8
This guide shows how to install fresh OS X 10.9 Mavericks on VMware workstation with Windows 7 or Windows 8. Mavericks is the latest desktop & laptop OS from Apple with full of new features. After it has been release officially, it can be download from Apple site (or from any torrent sites).
By any chance you like to try latest OS X 10.9 on VMware virtual machine with Windows 7 or Windows 8 host, you can follow these steps. Basically the OS is available as an app. So, it has to be used with existing Mac OS X and installed on different partition with dual boot. This way doesn’t work in virtual environment due to boot loader and disk issues with VMware and VirtualBox.
Latest Update: Upgrading this 10.9 version to Yosemite 10.10 works fine on VMware workstation. The performance would be poor on 10.10 compared to 10.9 after the upgrade. This could improved in next version of VMware workstation. Anyhow, I will be trying any solutions to fix the issue. Highly recommended to take a snapshot before upgrading to OS X 10.10, also increase the RAM size and processor cores. Refer this guide how the upgrade went on my PC.
Update: If you like to use OS X 10.9 Mavericks with pre-installed VMware image without trying fresh installation as shown below, you can click here to see our simple guide.
To continue our normal steps, we will be making a virtual bootable hard disk from OS X 10.9 DMG, and boot the new virtual machine from it. Creating bootable VMDK file is slightly a lengthy processor and I’m sure the below each steps will be good enough to explain it.
Earlier this guide was made with DP version of Mavericks, but you can follow the same steps to do the installation of final retail version.
What you Need to Make Bootable OS X 10.9 VMDK in VMware
1) Running OS X (10.8 or 10.7) in VMware
2) OS X 10.9 Mavericks DMG file
3) Sysprobs Lion Files
4) Latest darwin.iso file
Part 1 – How to Make Bootable Hard disk (VMDK)
1) Make sure to have a running Mac OS X virtual machine in VMware workstation.
2) Attach a new hard disk VMDK file (single file, no split) size of 10GB. The virtual machine should be powered off to add new virtual hard disk.
3) Transfer (copy) the OS X 10.9 Mavericks DMG file inside virtual machine. I have used USB disk for this.
4) Once you have started virtual machine with newly added hard disk, you need to initiate the disk and create a partition.
Name the partition, and select correct format and type.
- Name – 109installer
- Format: Mac OS X Extended
- Partitions: Single partition – Apple Partition Map
Press apply to create partition and format.
5) Double click OS X 10.9 Mavericks DMG file and let it mount. A new volume ( ‘OS X Mavericks 10.9 DP1” as of now) will appear under volumes once it’s mounted.
We need to open (mount) InstallESD.dmg file now. You can run the following terminal command from inside OS X Mavericks 10.9 DP1.
6) Mount BaseSystem.dmg which is inside the volume mounted in previous step.
Run following command from inside newly mounted volume called ‘OS X Install ESD’.
Wait for some time to get over of mounting BaseSystem.
7) It’s time to restore BaseSystem content to newly created partition (VMDK disk).
Open Disk Utility under utilities. Set the source and destination correctly as shown below. Press Restore button to start the process.
Remember: The above process will overwrite destination volume and it’s name. So, to get the same name (‘109installer’ in this example), you need to rename the volume again after above restore process had been completed.
8.) Let’s copy the packages from original location to new installer disk.
Make sure to follow correct volume names in your scenario.
9) I’m not sure whether this step is required, but still I’m following it to mark as OS X server version.
That’s it, we have completed major part of installing OS X 10.9 on VMware workstation, which is preparing bootable disk.
Shutdown the existing Mac OS X virtual machine and safely remove the second 10GB VMDK file. I recommend to take a copy of this file.
10) Better to have latest version of VMware workstation.
Unlock VMware workstation for Mac OS X guest support in Windows host. Check our earlier guide how to use VMware workstation 8 or 9 unlocker.
You must see Apple Mac OS X support in guest OS area after applying the patch,
11) Download Sysprobs lion files from here and extract it where you have enough disk space for 10.9 installation.
Open pre configured virtual machine VMX file from extracted location, it will be opened by VMware workstation by default.
Modify the hardware settings as you like depending on the physical computer hardware resources.
12) Attach the bootable VMDK file which we created in earlier steps. Make sure to add it as first disk of SCSI controller of virtual machine.
13) Power on Mavericks OS X 10.9 virtual machine now. If the unlocker patch and bootable hard disk (VMDK) worked fine, then you will be seeing the installation screen.
As you could see in above screen, there is no install button to start installation straightaway. No worries, start the terminal as mentioned.
14) Use installer command to start installation by specifying destination volume. By default the new disk (destination disk) will be named ‘Macintosh’. If you are not sure about disk name, you can use ‘Disk Utility’ to see the correct name.
Use below command to start.
Installation process will take some time. Nothing may appear on screen for some time, do not worry and let it run until you see the final message.
15) Once installation completed, shut down the virtual machine and remove bootable VMDK file. Start up the Mavericks virtual machine and I’m sure you will be landing on initial configuration and personalization screens. Complete them and enjoy.
This method is completely for testing and learning purpose only. You can’t use OS X on VMware workstation for full utilization of all features.
Install VMware Tools on OS X 10.9 Mavericks
16) Download latest darwin.iso from here. The correct available version as of now is here.
Attach darwin.iso to virtual machine’s CD drive. Once it’s mounted, run install VMware tools to start installation.
VMware tools will slightly improve the video performance and mouse integration. Even full screen option will be enabled.
But the overall display performance is very poor as OS X machine can’t access the physical hardware resources directly.
Here is the working OS X 10.9 Mavericks on VMware workstation with Windows 8 ( full screen view enabled).
How Install Mac OSX in VMware Windows
Install Mac OSX in VMware Windows PC
This article explains step by step method to install Mac OSX in VMware on your Windows PC. If you are interested to learn something on Mac OS X 10.5.5 Leopard or do some testing on Mac OS, then you can continue read this article. This article is only for testing purpose. Whoever doesn’t have chance to buy apple hardware with Mac OS, can use this method to install and run Mac on VMware home Windows PC.
Installation is not ‘Very’ Easy
Installation is not easy as inserting the CD and click ‘Next’ ‘Next’ or running some executable files. I wanted to install and learn Macintosh OSX on Windows in my PC, so I searched on internet for possibilities to have Macintosh on Windows computer. The results returned nothing very useful other than changing your XP, Vista themes to Mac OS themes. Based on the other tips in several sites and after I did it practically, now I’m writing this method to install mac on VMware in Windows PC.
But still I like to share what I found when I searched,
This video shows nicely how to change the XP theme to Mac OS theme. It looked as good video. But when I tried to install it…., guess what? Anti-virus popped up. I left it. You can try how to change the XP theme to Mac OS theme if you want.
Step by step to change the Windows theme to Mac
But I’m talking about real Mac. As I said earlier installation is not very easy since both OS hardware platform requirements are different, Mac can be installed on Virtual PC on your PC. To make the installation easy, in other word “to avoid the Mac installation”, we will just import the Mac OS pre-installed hard disk to your PC using VMware. Don’t be more confused, follow the below easy steps. Here are the requirements,
Software Requirements for Install Mac on VMware
Virtual PC software. Several virtual PC software available, but this method goes with VMware workstation since we will be using VMware hard disk image.
VMware workstation 6 or moreyou can download the VMware workstation at VMware site here . Either you can try 30-day free evaluation version or buy the full version, but don’t ask crack.
Mac OS X 10.5.5 Leopard VMware image download(Note – This is a torrent download)
Hardware Requirements:Make sure after you installed VMware workstation, you have minimum below hardware resources to allocate for Mac OS.
RAM – 1GB
Hard Disk 15GB
Processor – Automatic allocation.
Install Mac on VMware Step by Steps
1) Install VMware Workstation.
2) Download Mac OSX 10.5.5 Leopard VMware Hard disk image. ( Approx Size – 1.9GB)
3) Extract the Image to a folder (You need WinRAR for extraction and extracted size is Approx 9.4GB). Make sure extraction is successful and you get all VMware files as below
4) Start VMware workstation and open the Mac OS X Leopard.vmx. ( In VMware go to File – Open from extracted place)
5) Once you open the correct vmx files, you can see the configurations which already done on the image. The below screen is the default one when you open it, before you power on the virtual PC. ( this is what I’m getting in my PC)
6) Make sure Guest OS should be ‘FreeBSD’. Even if you have Dual processor and have option to select two processors in VMware option, DO NOT change to two. Leave the Processors 1 only. Do not worry about Hard disk allocation 30GB. You can increase the memory size if you have memory resource in your computer.
7) That’s it click ‘Power on this virtual machine’. Now you should be able to see Mac OS.
8) In case your Mac stuck with following welcome screen for long time,
You must disable ‘Intel Hardware Virtualization’ from your BIOS. Note that any time you enable or disable the Hardware virtualization setting in the BIOS; one has to completely power off (cold restart) the CPU for 10 seconds before booting.
Read More about how to Disable or Enable Hardware Virtualization in BIOS
Now start the Mac on VMware again, this time it will work fine.
Somewhere I read that Network will not working in Mac with VMware, but it works fine with this image. I tested ‘Bridged’ and ‘NAT’ networks in VMware. It worked fine.
Mac Admin Password
This OS image has Mac Admin password, the password is ‘password ‘.

Run Mac OS X in VMware Workstation
Many Windows users would also like to try Mac OS X operating system that runs on Apple computers. There are some ways how to do it, but in our opinion, the easiest one is to install OS X in some virtualization software, like VMware Workstation.
By default, VMware Workstation doesn't officially support virtualization of Mac OS X. However, other third party developers created unofficial update that adds Mac OS X profiles to VMware settings, which allows users to install Mac OS X without Chromeleon, or other Apple Mac boot emulators.
How to run Mac OS X in VMware Workstation
We have tried to run last version of Mac OS X (Mountain Lion - build 10.8.) in VMware Workstation.
Other system requirements to run virtualized Mac OS X are:
Intel dual core processor with Intel VT-x hardware virtualization, 2GB RAM, 15GB free HDD space, NVIDIA, or ATI GPU.
Step 1 - Download and install VMware Workstation
VMware Workstation is commercial software, but you can try fully functional time limited demo version which is available on the official VMware website. It is recommended to download and install Workstation version 8.
Step 2 - Download Mac OS X installation image
We have tried already prepared Mac OS X Mountain Lion virtual machine created by Soul Dev Team. The archive (OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 Retail VMware Image) contains virtual machine with pre-installed Mac OS X and other utilities to customize VMware Workstation. Download it from Soul Dev Team website and unpack archive to your hard drive.
Step 3 - Customize VMware Workstation
Open the archive and go to the VMware Workstation Unlocker - Windows subfolder.
In our case:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Shared Virtual Machines\OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Retail VMware Image\VMware Unlocker - Mac OS X Guest\VMware 8.x Series\VMware Workstation Unlocker - Windows
Click the right mouse button on install.cmd script and select Run as Administrator option. Wait until the patch process is finished.
There is an utility available in the archive called Hardware Virtualization Bypasser that allows users without processor with VT-x virtualization, run Mac OS X in VMware. However we tested it on older Pentium D 945 system without success.
Step 4 - Run the Mac OS X in VMware Workstation
Start VMware Workstation. Click on File menu > Open... Navigate to the unpacked Mac OS X archive to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion subfolder and select OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.vmx file.
VMware Worksation with imported Mac OS X virtual machine
Click on VM menu > Settings... (also can use Alt+D shortcut). Click on Options tab and check the Guest operating system is set to Apple Mac OS X and Version to Mac OS X 10.7. 64-bit.
VMware Workstation General settings for Mac OS X
Click on Hardware tab. Set the memory settings to one half of RAM installed in computer. In Processors settings set the number of processors and cores per processor (mostly one processor and two, four or eight cores). These settings greatly affect the virtual machine performance. Now click on OK button.
VMware Workstation Hardware settings for Mac OS X
Click on Power on this virtual machine option (also Ctrl+B shortcut). After few seconds you will se a warning window.
VMware Workstation warning window
Click on I copied it button and wait until the Mac OS X boot up to Welcome wizard, where you can set up your virtual Apple Mac computer (keyboard settings, localization, time settings, Apple ID, User account etc.).
VMware Workstation Mac OS X setup
Step 5 - Install VMware Tools
After you have set up the system, it is time to install VMware Tools, which will improve performance of the system and allow you to set monitor resolution higher than 1024x768.
Click on VM option in upper menu → Settings... → CD/DVD (IDE) option → Use ISO image file option and after that on Browse... button. Navigate to Mac OS X unpacked archive to Tools subfolder and select darwin.iso disk image.
In our case:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Shared Virtual Machines\OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Retail VMware Image\VMware Unlocker - Mac OS X Guest\VMware 8.x Series\Tools
VMware Workstation CD/DVD settings for Mac OS X
VMware Tools installation will be opened in the system. Double click on Install VMware Tools and install them to system. After the installation is finished restart the virtual computer (Click on Apple logo in upper left corner > Restart...).
VMware Workstation VMware Tools installation in Mac OS X
And that's it! Your virtual Apple Mac computer is prepared to use and you can start using and testing all Mac OS X apps.

How to Install Mac OS on PC Using VMware Workstation
This is for all those users, even me, who thought they could run Mac OS on Windows 10. The system I have running at home that I wanted to install Mac OS on PC for so I decided to search for a way to accomplish this feat. As expected, a lot of websites said that it was not possible to run Mac OS on Windows 10 or even install Mac OS on PC with claims that it could potentially ruin your default software. However, fortunately enough I came across a video that showed how to run Mac OS on Windows 10 and the whole process of how to install Mac OS on PC.
Simplified Steps to Install Mac OS on PC with Windows 10
1. First and foremost, in order to install Mac OS on PC, you have to download this file (approx. 6 GB). Within which is another file called Yosemite 10.10 Retail .rar, and it needs to be extracted and moved to a location of your choice. We’d prefer it be on an SSD. This .rar file contains VMware prepped OS X files (vmx, vmdk) for use with VMware products.
2. Now you have to install VMware Workstation or VMware Player. I had Workstation route installed beforehand so I just used that.
3. Confirm that VMware Workstation or VMware Player is installed correctly, and then close the program.
4. Download the latest OS X Unlocker which at the time of writing it is version 2.0.8.
5. Extract the contents of OS X Unlocker and transfer them onto your computer. OS X Unlocker essentially patches the installed VMware product, so that Mac OS X can be installed. It does this by modifying some core VMware system files.
6. Navigate to the folder where you extracted and moved the OS X Unlocker and Run the following files as Administrator (win-install.cmd and win-update-tools.cmd).
Note: in case some mishap occurs, or you want to restore the original files for your VMware application you have to run win-uninstall.cmd.
7. Run VMware Workstation or VMware Player and select Open a Virtual Machine.
8. Select the Mac OS X 10.11.vmx file and select Open.
9. You must now select Edit virtual machine settings which will be done by right clicking on the Mac OS X 10.11 object on the left side panel or via the tabbed window.
10. You are allowed to maintain the default resources if that’s what you’d prefer or bump the memory up. Like I bumped them up to 8 GB and 2 vCPU. The crucial option to select is Version which is on the Options tab and it has to be set to Mac OS X 10.7. It’s not available by default but the OS X Unlocker we ran earlier had revealed this option. However, if for some reason you don’t see this option consider running the OS X Unlocker steps again and it would probably have to be Run as Administrator.
11. Switch on the Virtual Machine either by using Power on this virtual machine or by right clicking and going to Power > Start Up Guest.
12. The machine will boot up and take you through the OS X setup process which is honestly very quick. Once that’s done and dusted, you must now install the latest VMware Tools onto the newly created OS X VM. There’s a possibility that it had caught your eye when we ran win-update-tools.cmd for OS X Unlocker.
13. Right click on the Mac OS X 10.9 VM on the left side and go to Settings. Go to CD/DVD and go to Browse and mount the darwin.iso file. Make sure Connected is checked.
14. The VMware Tools installer should pop right up after which you should just click Install VMware Tools and then reboot upon completion.
15. If you want to take it a step further to improve the VM performance there is a tool called BeamOff which is included in this file we downloaded in step 1. This tool disables beam synchronization which in turn improves OS X VM performance.
At the time of this writing, OS X El Capitan was available so you can go and get it updated from the App Store.

As I've already said, "VMware does not support the running of OS X under VMware Player/Workstation!" and even if they did it wouldn't be done so legally because the SLA states not only on Apple-branded hardware but also while running under OS X itself, not under Windows on Apple-branded hardware! How VMware can support it under ESXi on Apple-branded hardware without violating the SLA is not clear although they do support it in this configuration. Maybe they have permission from Apple for this.
