Note to self: Install MacOS in Virtualbox

Grab MacOS

Clone https://github.com/thenickdude/OSX-KVM

sudo apt install qemu-utils make
cd scripts/bigsur
make BigSur-recovery.img
vboxmanage convertdd BigSur-recovery.img BigSur-recovery.vmdk
  • Using MacOS Profile in Virtualbox, create a new VM.
  • Remove CD-Drive. Add second SATA Disk with previously created VMKD
  • Disable Floppy Boot
  • Set RAM / CPU to sane values
  • Set Video RAM to 128MB
  • Set USB Emulation to USB3.0

After creating the VirtualBox VM

VBoxManage modifyvm "macOS" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 00100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff
VBoxManage setextradata "macOS" VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct "MacBookPro15,1"
VBoxManage setextradata "macOS" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-551B86E5744E2388"
VBoxManage setextradata "macOS" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc"
VBoxManage setextradata "macOS" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1
VBoxManage setextradata "macOS" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x800

For Ryzen, add

VBoxManage modifyvm "macOS" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i7-6700K"


Bigsur works.

Don't update to MacOS12 Monterey yet. Fresh installation also won't work. MacOS and/or the Installer of Monterey are randomly crashing.
