How to install Apple macOS in VMware Workstation on Windows

MacOS Logo

macOS is a quite popular operating system. I never had an opportunity to work with it prior joining to VMware. From my point of view, Apple makes brilliant hardware and software (with one exception of Finder in macOS). At the moment I am running Windows 10 as a Bootcamp and I am quite happy how it performs. However, there are situations when one would like to evaluate the different operating system. Let it be any Linux flavor or an even exotic system like BSD you can all run them in VMware Workstation. What about the Apple macOS? Unfortunately in VMware Workstation running on Windows by default you can’t run Apple macOS.

Today I will show you how to install Apple macOS in VMware Workstation on Windows.

Dlaczego wirtualizuję z VMware?

Od premiery wersji RTM Windows Server 2008 miałem przyjemność pracować w domu na tym systemie (link do wpisów . Nie mógłbym zarzucić systemowi nic jednak jest pewna rzecz, która sprawiła iż przesiadłem się z systemu serwerowego na rzecz systemu klienckiego (Windows 7).

Otóż problemem dla osób korzystających z wirtualizacji na komputerze domowym jest wirtualizacja systemu “rodzica” jak i “gości” (parent i guest OS). W normalnym środowisku serwerowym na komputerze produkcyjnym nie instaluje się kart graficznych takich jakie instaluje się w komputerach domowych (wiadomo wyjątkiem są tutaj karty do obróbki 3D). W związku z tym przy użyciu standardowych sterowników do grafiki na serwerze produkcyjnym nie zauważymy żadnych problemów z wydajnością systemu czy problemów z mumltimediami.
