About This File

Clover r4385 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.


Tested with unlocked Workstation 12.5 running OSX 10.9 -->10.13 guest in Windows X64 host.



1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4385 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4385-X64.iso by double clicking on it.

2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal

diskutil mount disk0s1

3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition

4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file

5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.


Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

Open your VM's vmx file with Wordpad and add the line bios.bootDelay = "3000" - post#5 in my guide.  This will allow you time to press <F2> while the VM starts and access the VMware Boot Manager, where you can add Clover/CLOVERX64.efi as a boot menu entry (or simply choose to boot the EFI Hard Drive entry)...

In order to use this, do you have to have a patched version of VMware using Donk's unlocker, or is this intended for booting macOS on an unpatched VMware install?
