Windows is incredible. But there’s always some room to squeeze things out of it. In this post, we’ll install macOS Mojave on VMware on Windows PC. This installation probably requires VMware Unlocker for macOS or Unlocker for VMware Patch Tool. Whatever we call, it’s basically VMware Unlocker or Unlocker for VMware Patch Tool which unlocks VMware for supporting and installing macOS Mojave.
With the high-end hardware and top-notch software, easy to use, Mac is the super competitive rival in every terms. For Windows users, even those who are faithful to it, installing and working in a macOS environment is still their want. Maybe you want to play some cool apps that aren’t available on Windows or maybe you need macOS for developing some iOS or Apple environment apps. Whatever the reason, there are a couple of simple ways to install macOS on Windows. Here’s how to make it happen.
While it’s entirely possible to run Windows on Mac like we install Windows 10 on VirtualBox on Mojave, it should be fairly accessible to install macOS Mojave on Windows. As there are some ways and methods to install macOS as we talked about 3 ways to install macOS Catalina on Windows has no difference with Mojave on Windows on PC. These are some of those working ways you can try install macOS Mojave on Windows PC. With those in hand, we’ll do this with the nicest app which is no other but VMware.
VMware is probably one of the finest virtualization apps for running multiple operating systems simultaneously. There are two options in terms of using it leaving us with a paid and free option. These are VMware Workstation Pro and VMware Workstation Player. While it has some pros and cons so we’ll take a look at which one meets your needs. After installing VMware, it requires download VMware Unlocker for macOS Patch tool, we’ve provided the file so we’ll also install it here.
While we’ve installed macOS Mojave on VMware on Windows previously, at this point, we’ll install macOS Mojave on VMware on Windows with a new method that will be via macOS Mojave ISO file. Obtaining a ISO file can be done in two ways, that’s whether creating a macOS Mojave ISO or picking it up from us. Both are safe, easy and simple to do. In this method, we’ll use a macOS Mojave ISO file to install macOS Mojave on VMware on Windows PC via a new method.
Step One – Create or Download a macOS Mojave ISO
Like we installed macOS Mojave on VMware with Mojave VMDK image. For installing Mojave on VMware, in this method, we’ll need a macOS Mojave ISO file for VMware & VirtualBox. This file can be either created or obtained, but both should be done correctly. No worries, we’ve provided the macOS ISO file and how to create it.
Since the process is different from installing macOS Mojave with Mojave VMware & VirtualBox (VMDK) file, we’ve separated and provided macOS Mojave ISO file in this section. Here’s the macOS Mojave ISO we’ve provided.
macOS Mojave ISO Final ISO File (18G103) September 26, 2019
- As every operating system is within a store but in terms of macOS Mojave ISO for VMware & VirtualBox, it is what isn’t available anywhere except here. Even a simple ISO won’t work for installing Mojave on VMware, so in this case, we’ve provided macOS Mojave ISO for VMware & VirtualBox uploaded on Google Drive. So without spending time, let’s get it.
From the BIOS, watch out if the Intel VT-x hardware acceleration options are enabled.
Step Two – Install VMware Workstation Pro or Player
The next important step for installing macOS Mojave on VMware is to install VMware itself. As we’ve previously done, it’s quite easy to install and use on, so pick it up and start it.
That done, installing it will take a few moments. Do it typically as you do any other installer and when it’s done, click Finish.
Step Three – Install VMware Unlocker Patch Tool
Whether that’s VMware Player or VMware Workstation, installing the VMware Unlocker for VMware or Unlocker for VMware Patch Tool is required to install macOS Mojave. The installation of VMware Unlocker for VMware Patch Tool is pretty easy and quick, we’ve provided it and also installed. Installing this will provide macOS option that can be installed macOS Mojave, High Sierra or other versions.
Before installing the VMware Unlocker for VMware Patch Tool, close VMware completely by clicking on the Exit button.
Next, open the VMware Unlocker Patch Tool and right-click on win-install then select Run as administrator. It will run tons of lines and commands and even might take some time to download the file.
Step Four – Create A New Virtual Machine
The VMware is now ready to use, so start with creating a new virtual machine on VMware.
Open VMware Workstation and click on Create a New Virtual Machine or press Ctrl + N.
Then select Typical (Recommended) and click Next.
On the next window, select I’ll install the operating system later.
Next, select Apple macOS X for the operating system then choose 10.14 version and hit Next.
If you don’t see the macOS option here, then it’s likely that the Unlocker Patch tool isn’t installed or if it’s installed, chances are that the VMware was open when installing VMware patch tool.
Name and choose the location where to store the virtual machine files and hit Next.
The disk size is important, set 100GB to the disk size then click Next.
Check if everything seems correct, then click Finish.
Step Five – Configure The Virtual Machine
Now its turn to setting up the virtual machine we created recently.
To do this, click on Edit virtual machine settings.
On the virtual machine settings, set up 50% of your system’s RAM as 8GB if there’s 16GB on your computer.
Go to the next tab which is processors and apply the previous rule that will be 50% or 60% of the system resource.
Skip the next tab and on the CD/DVD tab, click Use an ISO Image file then click on Browse and select the macOS Mojave ISO file.
Now from the USB controller, change the USB compatibility, USB 3.0
Step Six – Insert Config Key For VMX File
Now type in or copy and paste the following command at the end of the commands.
Then close it and click on Save.
Step Seven – Install macOS Mojave on VMware
The macOS Mojave is now ready to take off, so time to install now, let’s do it.
Get started by switching on macOS Mojave, simply click on Power on This Virtual Machine.
After a few moments, it will appear this window. Select your language and click on Continue.
When the next window appeared, click on Disk Utility then click on Continue.
Now select the VMware Virtual SATA… then click on Erase and name the disk, select the format as shot and click Erase.
When finished, click Done then close the window.
Next, click on Install macOS and hit Continue.
Then click Continue.
Accept the terms and conditions by clicking on Agree.
Select the erased disk and click on Install.
Once it’s done, it will reboot. When it’s up, select your language and click Continue.
Then proceed with the installation as usual and when it’s finished, it will look like this.
Final Step – Install VMware Tools on macOS Mojave
Last but not least step is installing VMware Tools on macOS Mojave. This essential step will enhance the overall performance and as well as provide some of the most required features such as full-screen resolution, speed up the performance, drag and drop and more. For this step, since we’ve done it previously, it will be done like that. We’ve done it separately, here’s how to do it.
At this point, I recommend taking a snapshot of the virtual machine which will include the entire copy of your system. When it’s required, you can revert to it even simpler from backup. This will definitely save from worse incidents, believe me.
So if there’s some problem when installing or even after that, you can always fix it from the instructions.
All done! Now it should perfectly work and there should be really huge problems. If there is speed problem, no worries, it’s easy to fix.
Now that it’s there with the latest verison, you can update to the next latest version when its out.
That was all to there it is. Everything seems fine and if there’s something, let us know in the comment down below.
