macOS on Hyper-V

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am trying to install mac OS X on Hyper-V with Windows 10 Host. Can it be done? Does Hyper-V Manager have an unlocker? Should I use an ISO? I am a member of Apple's Beta Software Program and I would like to use my macOS Sierra on a VM. I know you can do it on VMware and Virtual Box but I havent found anything on Hyper-V. Can anyone help? Please respond. Thanks

There is a possibility now use Hyper-V on Windows 10 using OpenCore. I tried a couple of ideas but did not go far enough. Any ideas are welcome. not sure how to use OpenCore to boot Hyver-V. Here is the link to Hyver-V kext https://github.com/acidanthera/MacHyperVSupport

You realize this thread is FOUR years old, yes? :)

And what difference it makes how old the thread is, if there never was a solution to it!?

 

And now it seems to be at least a potential.

 

Well done for spotting it!

 

Time to test

Sadly failed miserably. First I had same error that I described in another thread : Start Image Failed - Aborted

 

Went through all the possible "suggestions". None made any difference.

 

It will need somebody more experienced to get it going

Then re-created installer.vhdx (a bit confusing process: on Mac create USB installer from Catalina.app, use SuperDuper to create image from USB (Diskutil cannot do it, it seems), use Diskutil to convert the .dmg to read-write dmg, then do the required qemu-img convert -f raw -O vhdx Installer.dmg Installer.vhdx)

Add EFI folder to EFI partition and now I get stuck on

Just use VMware Workstation 16, it will make life much easier. :)

I do not like easy! And not interesting etc etc

 

And if you have nothing to contribute then better say nothing?

I've seen it work using Acidanthera's MacHyperVSupport. It's generally a pretty barebones setup. Just need VirtualSMC.kext and MacHyperVSupport.kext. There are some additional info given under the readme for that kext as well.
If your on an AMD host though, it requires the AMD patches plus an additional one, since a lot of the CPUID info is passed through from the host.

I haven't quite managed it on my AMD system yet. Recovery boots fine, but all my internet recovery installs fail at varying points so it's kinda confusing where it's failing on my end.
