If you are a Windows user there is something called Virtual machine to test more than one operating system on it at the same time.

While using Windows 10 on your PC, so you will always hear about its updates through news or update notification. The world virtual machines give more opportunities to test the macOS operating system, Mobile OS, Linux. Even the virtual machine developed for macOS too like VirtualBox and VMware fusion. After this use, two OS on your computer through virtual machines. When a user spends their expensive times on the computer, so they want changes into environmental also.

Therefore, in this post, I will guide you on how to install macOS Mojave on VirtualBox on Windows PC step by step.

However, there two ways to install macOS Mojave on VMware or VirtualBox. The first process of macOS Mojave installation done with the macOS Mojave VMDK file “Virtual Machines Disk File”. And through this article, you will learn another unique way of macOS Mojave installation with macOS Mojave ISO File.  We have already tested it on VMware and VirtualBox. If the first option didn’t work for you so, no worries try this option using the ISO file.

Required Files:

  • macOS Mojave ISO File: With the release of macOS Mojave 10.14 it comes with three different types of files. macOS Mojave VMDK, DMG, ISO. This easily can be downloaded from App Store, but for the virtualization purpose, you have to prepare firstly the VMDK file. Whether you are testing macOS Mojave on any platforms of the operating system. Firstly, you have to prepare the files, indeed we can’t use the macOS Mojave DMG file for virtual machine installation. Separately, the VMDK file of macOS Mojave created by us zipped and uploaded on two online cloud platforms.
  • WinRaR: After you downloaded macOS Mojave 10.14. While extracting the zipped files you will be asked to extract with a tool called WinRaR. However, WinRaR is an open-source and powerful tool to compress, zip, and archive your necessary files on it. You get WinRaR setup freely from its official website. And WinRaR comes with different versions for every operating system.
  • VirtualBox: However, to install macOS Mojave on your actual operating system. Then you need to platforms whether VMware Workstation or VirtualBox. In this guide we need VirtualBox, VirtualBox is an open-source platform for every computer. And it comes with different versions too, for macOS, Linux, Windows. I think VirtualBox is the best platform to test more than one OS on it. As an example, you can test macOS on Windows, or Windows on macOS, or Linux on Windows, or Windows on Linux. It is the best tool to test many OS on virtual machines as a guest operating system.
  • VirtualBox Extension Pack: When you completed every setting for a guest installation on VirtualBox. Then you will see that Mouse & Keyboard is not working on it. Also, besides VirtualBox, there is a small tool called VirtualBox Extension Pack that built by Oracle to be installed on VirtualBox as a helper tool. After that, enable the USB 3.0 controller to fix the Mouse & Keyboard issue.
