MacOS is a very different operating system than Windows. It has its own look and functions very differently. It even has its own unique set of apps and programs. Perhaps you are in the market for a new computer and want to try macOS to see if you like it before buying a new Mac. Maybe there is some Mac-only apps that you really want to try. It is possible to install macOS on a Windows (or Linux) computer either as a dual boot or by using a virtual machine. This wikiHow teaches you how to install macOS on a virtual machine using VirtualBox.
That being said, installing macOS on a Windows computer virtually is so much easier with software like VirtualBox and could come a long way in helping you decide if you want to switch to a Mac. You can connect your iOS devices to your Virtual Mac just like a real Mac, try out various software, apps, and a lot more.
This procedure primarily focuses on macOS Big Sur, but it works the same with other recent releases of macOS too, provided you have the ISO file for that particular version. If you want to update the macOS installed in your virtual machine to the latest software, you can update the system software just like you normally would on an actual Mac.
for windows: install hyper-V in the windows features, restartthen in the cmd run as administrator and use your own virtual machine name instead Mac Mojave for the code below, try option one if it still doesnt work try option 2
Genio!!! Funcionó a la perfección!! Yo venía de windows 8,1 y reinstalé todo en windows 10, busqué mucho el el tema del windows 10 pero nada funcionaba.La imagen ya la tenía funcionando en windows 8.1 con VM versión 6.1.16Y con esto pude hacerla funcionar en windows 10 con VM 6.1.32.Muchas gracias por el aporte!
Apple has always made it hard to install its operating system on non-Apple hardware, making it hard to take advantage of the benefits of this refined OS. Here we will show you how to install macOS in a virtual machine. You will need a compatible set of hardware, along with a system with powerful enough components to run both Windows and macOS.
OVF is a cross-platform standard supported by many virtualization products which enables the creation of ready-made virtual machines that can then be imported into a hypervisor such as Oracle VM VirtualBox. Oracle VM VirtualBox makes OVF import and export easy to do, using the VirtualBox Manager window or the command-line interface.
Using OVF enables packaging of virtual appliances. These are disk images, together with configuration settings that can be distributed easily. This way one can offer complete ready-to-use software packages, including OSes with applications, that need no configuration or installation except for importing into Oracle VM VirtualBox.
The OVF standard is complex, and support in Oracle VM VirtualBox is an ongoing process. In particular, no guarantee is made that Oracle VM VirtualBox supports all appliances created by other virtualization software. For a list of known limitations, see Known Limitations.
OVF cannot describe snapshots that were taken for a virtual machine. As a result, when you export a virtual machine that has snapshots, only the current state of the machine will be exported. The disk images in the export will have a flattened state identical to the current state of the virtual machine.
Oracle VM VirtualBox copies the disk images and creates local VMs with the settings described on the Appliance Settings screen. The imported VMs are shown in the list of VMs in VirtualBox Manager.
Because disk images are large, the VMDK images that are included with virtual appliances are shipped in a compressed format that cannot be used directly by VMs. So, the images are first unpacked and copied, which might take several minutes.
The boot volume of the instance is extracted from the archive and a new VMDK image is created by converting the boot volume into the VMDK format. The VMDK image is registered with Oracle VM VirtualBox.
Use the Cloud Profile Manager to create a new cloud profile automatically. Or, create a cloud profile by importing settings from your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure configuration file into the Cloud Profile Manager.
Oracle VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. It installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. VirtualBox can create and run a \"guest\" operating system (virtual machine) in a window of the host operating system. The virtual machine provides a self-contained environment in which to experiment with new software without risking damaging changes to the host operating system.
Type a name for the new virtual machine. Since I am planning to install Ubuntu 14.04, I'll enter 'ubuntu1404'. Note that VirtualBox automatically changes 'Type' to Linux and 'Version' to 'Ubuntu (64 bit)'. These two options are exactly what we need.
The memory size depends on your host machine memory size. In my case, I have 12GB physical RAM. I like to allocate as much as possible for Ubuntu but leave some for my Windows host machine. I pick 8192 MB for my Ubuntu. Note that VirtualBox will create a swap partition with the same amount space as base memeory you have entered here. So later when you are selecting the size of the virtual hard drive, make sure it is large enough since the hard drive will be splitted into root (/)and swap partitions. The root partition contains by default all your system files, program settings and documents.
For the virtual hard drive space, the default value is 8GB which is too little for RNA-Seq analysis. I'll pick 100GB since I have plenty of space in my hard disk. You want to choose a good size for your RNA-Seq analysis. If you realize the drive space is not large enough, you'll need to go over these steps again to create another virtual machine.
Now the virtual machine is created. We are ready to install Ubuntu in this virtual machine. Select your new virtual machine and click 'Settings' button. Click on 'Storage' category and then 'Empty' under Controller:IDE. Click \"CD/DVD\" icon on right hand side and select the ubuntu ISO file to mount.
Since Tophat program can take an advantage of multiple processors/threads, it is a good idea to specify a large number of processors in virtual machine (default value is 1). You can change this number by clicking on 'System' category. In this case, I change the number of CPUs to 4 since 4 is the largest value shown on the green bar in my case. Now you can click 'OK' button to continue.
Back to Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager, click on the new Ubuntu virtual machine and hit 'Start' button. Now you shall see a 'Welcome' screen. Click 'Install Ubuntu' button. Note that the installation process may differ a little bit from version to version. The screenshots here are based on Ubuntu 14.04.1.
Before we proceed to install Guest Additions, make sure the current user has sudo/root privilege. If the current user does not have sudo/root privilege or it is not sure, run the following terminal command from an account (such as the user created when Ubuntu was first created; see the screenshot of 'Who are you' above) with root privileges to enable the root privilege for the current usersudo adduser USERNAME sudo where USERNAME should be replaced by the current user's name.
Once you have macOS Mojave working in VMware Fusion you create a second virtual drive and using Disk Utility on the just created VM, reformat virtual drive 2 as HFS+. This is important as it's APFS by default. It needs to be HFS+ to work with VirtualBox.
Once formatted you can use a backup program like SuperDuper! or CCC to clone the working installation to Virtual Drive 2. If you prefer you could just install Mojave onto Virtual Drive 2 (HFS+). However you do it, you will end up with a VMware Fusion VM with macOS Mojave bootable on two virtual drives. One formatted as APFS and one formatted as HFS+.
Now set Fusion to boot off of the HFS+ virtual disk and boot from it. Then you just delete the original (APFS) virtual disk from within Fusion. Actually delete it from disk don't just remove it from inventory.
Then you open the Fusion virtual machine file like you would an .app package (right-click > Show Package Contents...) and copy all the files out of the package into a location you want to use for VirtualBox VMs.
The current version of VirtualBox is 6.1.8 r137981 (Qt5.6.3). The version will work with Catalina (macOS 10.15.5). However, the Guest Additions (drivers) software will not work with macOS versions that boot from APFS volumes. An image of the About This Mac window on my example host computer is shown below.
Virtualization is the process where a user can create a virtual or actual image of something. It can be said that it is a copy of the original one. Using a desktop virtualization process users can operate more than one (two) operating systems using only one desktop (computer or laptop). Out of those two one is an actual operating system and another one is virtual. Windows, Linux, and other operating systems also allow this type of virtualization. It will help to create a virtual PC for the user.
There are many types of virtual machines and software is available. Users can use a Virtual Box and VMWare for getting the best experiences. They have to download and install it from the authenticated site.
For testing applications, virtual machines are the best choice. Using this, users can also test the software as well as the operating system. This virtual platform allows the user to run multiple programs on their PC. The user also can install any program which they want.
Users can run programs in the sandbox environment. it is the actual frame of working. If the user-facing any kind of problems regarding the virtual machine they can easily remove this from their PC. For that, it has to be VMware or Virtual Box.
With regards to entering or testing applications, Software or Operating Systems, virtual machines are the ideal choice to go with. They permit you to run diverse, one of a kind operating systems, run programs on them or have a go at installing whichever applications you like. 153554b96e
