Run macOS BigSur VMWare on AMD Laptop

Posts August 6, 2021 Nam Le 4

As the previous post Install MacOS Catalina On VMware AMD Laptop, I have upgrade my macOS Catalina VMWare to the BigSur. During upgrading, I have backed-up a copy of VMDK macOS BigSur. Below is my new laptop specìication:

  • ASUS Zenbook UM425IA-NH74
  • AMD Ryzen 7 4700U Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.1 GHz)
  • 1 TB PCIe NVMe Intel SSD
  • 16 GB LPDDR4X RAM Dual chanel
  • Windows 10 Professional included


Configure the VMWare

  • Install the VMWare as your way, either Player or Workstation will be fine.
  • Run the Unlocker by running the win-install.cmd with Administrator right.
  • Open VMWare, create a new VM, Select Apple Mac OS X under Guest operating system and choose "macOS 10.15" under Version. Leave all the option to the default. We will update the Hard Disk later.
  • Click on Finish once finished.
  • Update the Hard Disk by Click on Edit virtual machine settings.

  • Add a new Hard Disk by click on Add.. -> Hard Disk

  • Select SATA -> Use an existing virtual disk

  • Choose the VMDk that I provided in the #Prerequisites. Click on Ok when Finished.
  • The VM will start normally.

    Thank Lannie for visiting my blog.
    Apple doesn’t support installing macOS on non-Apple hardware and AMD systems are different from Intel so we have to do some trick. For the error CPU has been shut off by guest OS, you can follow here to fix:
