Installing macOS Monterey in VMWare


    Apple HATES when you install their operating system on anything becides their own hardware… so in this video, we’ll be installing macOS Monterey inside of VMWare Workstation on a Windows machine.

    Monterey ISO (not my link)

    smbios.reflectHost = “TRUE”
    hw.model = “MacBookPro14,3”
    board-id = “Mac-551B86E5744E2388”
    smc.version = “0”

    1. FIX FOR AMD CPU'S. put this text (click show more for text) in the vmx file instead of the one in the description… also if you have already started the virtual machine and got the "the cpu has been disabled by the guest operating system." error you should first delete the current system and create a fresh one… that works best with the vmx file.
      (please note that the quotes need to look like this: "…" and not like this: “…”)

      text for vmx file:

      smc.version = "0"

      cpuid.0.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:1011"

      cpuid.0.ebx = "0111:0101:0110:1110:0110:0101:0100:0111"

      cpuid.0.ecx = "0110:1100:0110:0101:0111:0100:0110:1110"

      cpuid.0.edx = "0100:1001:0110:0101:0110:1110:0110:1001"

      cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:0111:0001"

      cpuid.1.ebx = "0000:0010:0000:0001:0000:1000:0000:0000"

      cpuid.1.ecx = "1000:0010:1001:1000:0010:0010:0000:0011"

      cpuid.1.edx = "0000:0111:1000:1011:1111:1011:1111:1111"

      smbios.reflectHost = "TRUE"

      hw.model = "MacBookPro14,3"

      board-id = "Mac-551B86E5744E2388"

    2. wow, this is the first tutorial that i've tried and it works. no matter how many times i tried with virtualbox it didn't work. but one try and it worked with vmware player.
      i'm using an amd processor but the text that is pinned worked for me.
      running macOS 13 beta, Ventura.
      edit: it keeps restarting after finishing the install.

    3. Unfortunately this has been LONG patched and no longer does work, anymore.

      I've tried downloading the ISO file, and I did exactly everything this guy did (single file, placing that text inside the vmx, using tools and selecting 11.1 since it's the only one,etc).
      Each time I create the virtual machine, it just gives me "Failed to power on 'D:macosmacOS 11.1.vmx'". I tried everything, from restarting windows, disabling firewall and antivirus to even retrying multiple times and ending task all VMware processes.

      Hello everyone, There is Solution for some (intel?) problems.

      Problem 1 – After doing everything and reboot, Black f#$½ screen. (No way to open macOS again when you see that screen but reinstalling new one (3 hours ??)).
      Solution – Before your Reboot (or even eject the first cd driver) !! Apple Logo > System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Options > Click the Lock to make chages > "Set your Mac name as a -Automatic Login-" > Click the Lock again.

      Problem 2 – No Ethernet Connection (Solution works for Ethernet cable idk the WiFi).
      Solution – I select the "Use bridged Networking" when Creating Virtual Machine then when your vm is offline -> Open VM directory > Open ".vmx" file as a notepad > Change your " ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000e" " line with " ethernet0.virtualDev = "vmxnet3" " save then open vm.

      Good Luck guys. Best wishes.
