If you are interested in Apple’s new Mac operating system macOS 10.14 Mojave and want to try it, then you are in the right place because here you will find any kind of files that you will need to install macOS Mojave on VirtualBox on Windows. Please follow the step by step pictorial tutorial below.

macOS latest versions are out, So check the guides below to install them:

System Requirements

Before we get started, make sure to read the following requirements. Please do not skip this step because it’ll help you to successfully install macOS Mojave on VirtualBox on Windows 10 PC.

  • Minimum 2 GB memory (Recommended 8GB or higher)
  • Minimum 2 cores of processors (Recommended 4 cores or higher)
  • Hard disk free space 20 GB (Recommended 100GB or higher)
  • Your system should support Intel or AMD VT (Virtualization Technology)
  • Intel/AMD VT (Virtualization Technology) Should be enabled from BIOS setup

Required: If you haven’t already then you should enable Virtualization Technology (aka Intel VT or AMD-V).

Furthermore, it’s highly recommended that you install macOS Mojave on SSD (Solid State Drive) instead of HDD (Hard Disk Drive) because you will have a much faster performance with SSD rather than HDD.

Steps to Install macOS Mojave on VirtualBox on Windows Using ISO

  1. Download the Prerequisites
  2. Install VirtualBox on Windows on PC
  3. Install & Update VirtualBox Extension (Optional but important)
  4. Create a New Virtual Machine for macOS Mojave

Step 2: Install VirtualBox on Windows on PC

From the “Download Prerequisites” section of this post, you should have downloaded VirtualBox and if you didn’t, download VirtualBox latest version and install it on your Windows system. If you’ve already installed VirtualBox, then you can skip this step. Otherwise, follow the steps below.

  1.  On the welcome Wizard page, click Next.

  7. Finally, click Finish.

Step 3: Install & Update VirtualBox Extension (Optional)

This step is not 100% necessary but it’s highly recommended to do this step because macOS Mojave might not function properly on VirtualBox. For this reason, it might cause problems during the installation. Go to the Virtualbox download page. Under VirtualBox 6.1.10 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack section, click All supported platforms to download the latest version of Virtualbox Extension Pack.

Download Virtualbox Extensions

Finally, you should see something like the screenshot below.

Step 4: Create a New Virtual Machine for macOS Mojave

After installing VirtualBox, now you will need to create a new virtual machine on Virtualbox.

Creating a virtual machine for macOS Mojave is kind of the same as you creating a virtual machine for the Windows Operating system or Linux but with some minor changes. In this post, I’ll outline those changes. Follow the steps below to create a new virtual machine for macOS Mojave using the ISO file.

  1. Open up your VirtualBox application and click New
  2. Click Expert Mode and select the following options then click Create.
    1. Type a suitable Virtual Machine Name.
    2. Virtual Machine Location (a separate drive is recommended).
    3. Type (Mac OS X).
    4. Version (Mac OS X 64-bit).
    5. Memory 4 GB (recommended 8 GB or higher).
    6. Hard Disk: Select Create a virtual disk now.
    7. On the create virtual hard disk window, choose the following options.
      1. Disk Location: The default location should be fine unless you want to change to a new location.
      2. File Size: You can specify the disk size here.
      3. Hard disk file type: Select VHD  (Virtual Hard Disk) format.
      4. Storage on physical hard disk: Select the Dynamically allocated option. However, if you want to have a better performance disk then choose a fixed disk. Fixed disk, will allocate the specified size from your host machine immediately. Read more about the dynamic vs fixed-size disk.

Step 5: Edit the New Virtual Machine

It’s time to edit the virtual machine to make it works. Select macOS Mojave VM and click on Settings. Now, bring the following changes to macOS Mojave VM.

    1. Under System>Motherboard, increase the Base Memory to 8192MB. However, you can use a bit lower memory if your system doesn’t have this much RAM.
    2. Uncheck Floppy from the Boot Order section.
    3. Under the Processor tab, increase the processors to 4 or higher.
    4. On the Display window, increase the Video Memory to 128MB.

      Increase macOS Mojave Video Memory

    5. From the Storage section, click on the Empty>DVD icon. Click on Choose a disk file. You should select the macOS Mojave ISO image which you’ve downloaded from the Download Prerequisites” section of this post. Finally, click OK to close the macOS Mojave Settings window.

Step 6: Execute the VirtualBox Code by CMD

Once you’ve created and customized your virtual machine, it’s time to run some codes in order to install macOS Mojave on VirtualBox. First, you should note your virtual machine name because later on, we will use it. Open the VirtualBox code which you should have downloaded from the “Download Prerequisites” section of this post. If you’ve not downloaded doesn’t matter. Just use the following code.
Note: Before, you execute the code by command prompt. You should read the following steps.

cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\"
VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "VM Name" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 00100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff
VBoxManage setextradata "VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac19,1"
VBoxManage setextradata "VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0"
VBoxManage setextradata "VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-AA95B1DDAB278B95"
VBoxManage setextradata "VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc"
VBoxManage setextradata "VM Name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1
  1. When you opened VirtualBox code via notepad or any other text editor, use the replace function of the program to Replace the “VM Name” with your virtual machine name. See the picture below to get an idea of how to do it.

    Replace macOS Mojave VM Name

  2. Now, you’ve two choices. First, if you want to fix your macOS Mojave screen resolution in the first place. You should also execute the following code. You have to change “VM Name” with your virtual machine name and HxV with a screen resolution such as “1920×1080“. For more supported screen resolution on VirtualBox and detailed guide, visit fix macOS Catalina screen resolution on VirtualBox.
    VBoxManage setextradata "VM Name" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution HxV

    Important Note: We highly recommend to quit the VirtualBox program before executing the code. If you don’t do it, your virtual machine might not proceed to the installation step.

    Exit VirtualBox

    Exit VirtualBox

  3. Once you replaced the “VM Name” with your virtual machine name, then run the code one by one via command prompt (CMD). You can open the command prompt by pressing the Windows+X key in Windows 10 and select Command Prompt from the list. Or simply press Windows key and type CMD. Click Run As Administrator and click Yes.

    Execute macOS Mojave VirtualBox Code

  4. Now, that you’ve executed the macOS Mojave VirtualBox code. Open the VirtualBox app then click the Start button to power on the VM. A black screen with a lot of white text will appear on the screen. Just wait for a few minutes and the macOS Mojave installation will start.

Step 7: Create macOS Mojave Bootable Disk

Once you start your VM, a whole bunch of code will run on the screen, but you should not be worried about it. Wait for a few minutes, and you should see the macOS Mojave Language window.

  1. Select your Language and click Continue arrow.

    Select macOS Mojave Language

    Do you know the solution for Finder crashes issues? Every time when I try to open Finder I´m getting this below error.

    1.- Finder quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. This report will be sent to Apple automatically.

    I just trying to fix this issue.

    Hope somebody help me!!

    Was able to install Majave, it is the beta version. I had the issues with no mouse or keyboard and was able to get control back with the USB3 fix, but then you lose control of the mouse for the host PC until you close the VM.

    Graphics can be jittery and it is very slow. I was hoping to check out Xcode, but I could not find it in the app store. Maybe not available for the Beta?

    I previously successfully setup High Sierra with a wikigains guide. I already had extension pack installed. I’ve tried various suggestions re usb3, Use Host I/O Cache etc to no effect. I am using VirtualBox 5.2.12.

  12. blankMatthew Dresden Reply

    Hi there,
    I was hoping you could share some more information on a problem you solved.

    If I setup two identical Virtual Machines, and execute the vbox manage command to set those extra attributes accordingly, I can get mojave up and running with the disk image you provided where Mojave was already installed.

    I can see you created the disk with Mac Journled with no special partitions or other bootloaders.

    On my 2nd machine the only difference is, I would like to install Mojave from an official Mojave iso I created from the Mojave package distributed by apple.

    In this 2nd case, the iso boots, I create the disk, and begin the installation, but partway through the install it crashes and reboots.

    Could you provide the steps for how you created the disk image you are providing here please.

    To improve performance I am trying to disable TAILSPIND and SPINDUMP.

    Unfortunately, these instructions (https://www.macobserver.com/community/tips-tricks/disable-tailspind-spindump-macos-cpu-speed/) aren’t working. The first command I am trying to run is:

    launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.spindump.plist

    First, it says “sudo: command not found” Surely sudo is available.

    Next, the command without sudo results in, ” … No such file or directory”

    I did run “csrutil disable” and reboot prior to trying the commands.

    Finder is not not working and also it’s not accepting any Apple ID (existing or newly created) saying: This mac is no longer eligible for creating Apple ID accounts.
    so it’s not usable.

    1. blankFaiz Orz Post author Reply

      Yeah dear because apple doesn’t recognize it as a real mac so you can’t really use it as a real mac but still there are a lot of things that you can try on it.

      1. blankyashar

        Actually, I have a mac OS High Sierra 10.13 on a VM VirtualBox working fine as a real mac, with Developer Apple ID, connected to my network to support windows clients running Xamarin Forms and that’s why I expect these versions to be the same.
        BTW, what’s the point of trying something with lack of some important primary functions?

        P.S. this is not to undermine your efforts on this matter, it’s appreciated.

      2. blankFaiz Orz Post author

        Yeah, you are right. Making macOS to work fine on VirtualBox on Windows is not easy for people who are new to it. So you can fix everything but it requires lots of time and effort.

    Hello Faiz Orz & Mukhtar, dear readers,
    Thanks for this work, it took me a while but it’s a complete and working tuto, probably the best I’ve found & tried on the internet.
    To all readers, you have to follow carefully and strictly this tuto step by step, and don’t be shy when giving RAM to the VM. I’m using the machine on my laptop (light Asus) and gave it 8Gb out of 16Gb and it’s not perfectly fluid. I’ve had to plug additional mouse and keyboard to have controls.
    Don’t expect it to work fully, many things haven’t been designed in purpose … for example on my config the only thing not working (so far) is … displaying Finder, which is blocking …. Also my additional mouse & keyboard are only usable on the VM when the VM is running, but it’s part of the deal.

  29. blankViking Reply

    This doesn’t work. Tried everything several times. Came as far as the “Choose Country” but could never get the mouse or keyboard integration to work. Tried both MAC OSX versions and with and without the Host cache selected. No difference. This just doesn’t work. Windows guest OS works just fine, and MAC OSX Sierra worked just fine, so there’s nothing wrong with my VB setup.

      Download VirtualBox Extension pack from VirtualBox website. Open up VirtualBox, go to File> Preferences and select Extension. Click on the + icon and select Extension Pack. Install it then go to Virtual Machine settings. From right-hand side click on USB and add your mouse and keyboard then try again.

    This doesn’t work. After the verbose startup is loads to a grey screen with the mouse being stuck in the top left. I allocated 4096 MB of Ram, made sure to inject the code into virtualbox (without it being open) and made sure my settings matched. I also made sure to try both Mac OS (64 Bit) and Mac OS X High Sierra (64 Bit) modes on virtualbox, with neither working and showing the exact same screen.

        I was also facing same problem and it was resolved by going to virtual machine (macOS Mojave) settings > usb > Enable usb controller > select USB 3.0 xHCI Controller.
        Then start VM it will work. But do install extension pack and other remedies suggested by Mukhtar.

      Then start VM it will work. But do install extension pack and other remedies suggested by Mukhtar.
