Cheapest as in 'free. In case you are not familiar with virtual machines, it's a way to emulate an entirely different computer system within our PC. For more information, you can check out our guide:. We have also covered how to create a Windows Virtual Machine, both in Windows and Linux operating systems.
Creating a Windows virtual machine is exceedingly simple. It is arguably easier than installing Windows on our PC. The company only wants to see macOS running on the Mac hardware because this is what they are selling. Hence, we will have to run through a couple of hoops to get the VM up and running. Nothing too complicated, though. It goes without saying that running any kind virtual machine demands a relatively powerful PC for a smooth experience.
After all, the hardware needs to run two operating systems simultaneously. With a powerful enough system, we can even run virtual machines one inside the other, like Russian nesting dolls. The speed of RAM is not of much consequence; we are just looking for lots of it. A multi-core CPU is also important. We should have a processor with at least four cores, 3rd gen Core i5 or equivalent. This is not a problem for most modern CPUs, but it doesn't hurt to check. The quickest way is to run the freeware Securable app.
Even with a virtualization-capable CPU, if the function is not enabled, it won't do much good. The Mac OS X virtual machine will probably not start at all, with an error message. That is because VMware has deprecated the 32bit edition of the player since a few versions back. On September 25th, , Apple released the latest version of macOS with the code name 'High Sierra,' which replaced the older Sierra However, it was not a massive upgrade from the previous version.
On the contrary, mac OS High Sierra is more like a simple update, with some added features. The company focused on video streaming, a smoother gaming experience, and data management. Furthermore, with High Sierra That is because Mac computers and laptops use Intel CPUs exclusively, and therefore the virtualization is straightforward, from a technical point of view. We can find the Intel version here, courtesy of the excellent fellows at Techsviewer.
Because of the size of the file, which is 5. In case you have never used Google Drive, it's the same account you probably have for Gmail, YouTube, or any other Google service. Or you can just create a new one. Google will throw a warning that it can't scan the file for viruses. We just download anyway. Since it is a large file, this can take a while, depending on our internet connection speed. After a successful download, it's a good idea to remove the copy from your Google Drive.
If we don't, it will take up a large part of the free 15GBs of space. Now that we have it on our computer, we notice that it is a. So, we will need a third-party app. Two excellent freeware apps are 7-zip and Peazip. For this guide, we used 7-zip. Both apps have free versions for personal use, and both are equally capable of handling the Mac OS X virtual machine. VMware is one of the leading companies in virtualization. At the time of this writing, the latest version of VMware Workstation Player 12 is There is also a later VMware Workstation Player version However, as of this writing, an essential patch to allow VMware to support the Mac OS X virtual machine is not available for v.
Thus, we have to stick to 12 for the time being. There is no version 13, probably VMware considered it bad luck, or was afraid its customers would do so. Installation is easy, and it won't try to install third-party software.
The first time we run the VMware Workstation Player, it will ask us whether we have a bought license key for professional use. To use the program for free, we just enter an email address. It doesn't even need to be valid; VMware won't request any confirmation. We need to patch the player to unlock this capability manually. You will find the latest available here. You need to sign up to the InsanelyMac forum to download it. After downloading the 'unlocker If you did it correctly, you will have an unlocker or whichever newer version folder in your C: drive, which will contain the patch files.
This is vital for the correct application of the patch. A few readers in the comments section had a problem running the unlocker from their D: drive, or from a path that contained spaces, e. Having a single-named folder at the root of the primary local disk C: offers the highest possible compatibility.
Finally, we right-click on the 'win-install' Windows command script inside the unlocker folder, and select 'Run as administrator. After we confirm this action, a command line window will come up and execute a series of commands to patch VMware Workstation Player to run a Mac OS X virtual machine.
If you see any 'File not found' and 'the system cannot find the file specified' messages, it means that the patcher has failed. With the patch finished, we can open the VMware Workstation Player again. We proceed to create a new virtual machine. As of this writing and with the current 2. We choose a name for the virtual machine, and optionally change the location, in case our C: drive doesn't have enough storage capacity for the Mac OS X virtual machine. Whether we leave the default location or select a different folder, it is imperative that we remember or write down the path.
We will need to change the contents of a file there later on. This will help the Mac OS X virtual machine to run a lot smoother. We must leave the default 2GB. If we have a four-core i5, we must also leave the processors at '2'. With an i7, we can increase them to '4'. Should we overdo it with the cores and assign more than our CPU has, we will get an error message.
We must now make a choice, where we want to have the Mac OS X virtual disk permanently saved. Because once we connect the disk to the virtual machine, if we move it we will have to go again through this whole process of removing and adding a drive. Remember when we advised you to write down the path where we created the Mac OS X virtual machine? This is where we are going to need it.
In place type Smc. Go according to the below screenshot. Once, the installation completed the virtual machine will restart, coming back wait for this step of installation also. It has an essential effect to fix the full-screen mode, Speed up the high performance, drag and drop from a virtual machine to the actual OS.
Once you completely signed in the macOS Mojave window. Once you clicked on Install VMware tools, after that the VMware tools installation software will appear on the desktop.
Double click on that to launch the installation wizard. Complete the full installation to fix the features. Again if you are getting confused check the below article.
