Threadripper ESXi and OSX VM

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today I installed vmware esxi 6.7 on my MSI x399 MEG Creation (2950x) set up. Install went fine so happy about that.

I used latest v3 unlocker to expose MAC support on Esxi and created a 10.14 and 10.13 OSX VM. I also downloaded a pre configured/installed VMDK with mojave and high sierra which work fine on vmware Workstation 14.

So, I tried the same vmdk in ESXi only to be greeted by the MAC logo and that's all. It simply wont progress past this. No errors, nothing.

 

Are there some hacks that I need to do to get OSX installed on ESXi 6.7?

@Advocate_HF, any progress on this? 

I am seeking a way to install MacOS 10.13/14 on EXSi with gpu passthrough but can't really find a structured tutorial...

macOS does not support AMD CPUs so you need to find an AMD kernel and build a setup using that, which is trickier than having an Intel CPU where macOS should just work in most cases. Unlocker cannot do anything about this.
