Test Mac OS Sierra on AMD Ryzen Processor Using Vmware Workstation

I'm excited about the upcoming Apple event on Sept 12,2018. One of the new announcement will be the new model of Macbook Air (possible with Retina display). Before that, i never use MacOS before and been using Windows OS since day 1.

In order to familar with new operating system, the best is test MacOS on a virtual machine. While google around, manage to find a post from hackintosher which provide the guide to download the vmdk. A bit tricky is when running AMD processor and here is my tweak

My environment:-

  • AMD Ryzen 5 2400G
  • Vmware Workstation 14
  • Download vmdk (special for AMD processor) from here.
  • Unlock MacOS setting by download unlocker 2.1.1 from here. Execute win-install.cmd with "Run as Administrator"
  • Create a new VM with the custom setting, attach the existing disk (SATA) and maintain existing Format. Don't power on the vm first. Modify the following settings:
    • Processor - enable Virtualize Intel VT or AMD-V

    • Modify vmx settings
      • Add new entry:  smc.version = "0"
      • VirtualHW.version = "10"
      • firmware = "bios"

  • Boot up VM and install Vmware Tool. Use from VMware Unlocker 2.1.1\VMware Unlocker 2.1.1\tools\darwin.iso
  • Voila! You have MacOS Sierra running with your AMD processor

Enjoy your new MacOS!

Certainly, I started to suffer from insects and fierce attacks and certainly looking for a solution to destroy them and get rid of them completely and annoyed and this will be provided by the company House Klein, but first let us remind you some of the most important benefits of the presence of insects on the planet in general.

    Insects are not only a nuisance but have a great role in the survival of living organisms on this planet. Insects, along with their completion of the food chain, are also responsible for the life of all other organisms. Have you ever imagined the planet for a moment without plants? Did you imagine how the situation would be in such a situation? Exactly, all forms of life on the planet will be destroyed, but ask yourself how the plant continues to grow and spread? Not only by providing food and the appropriate climate but with the availability of insects .. Yes Insects Without insects it will be very difficult to transport pollen and therefore very difficult to flourish crops and the abundance of production and the availability of many types of plants as now, as insects provide us with a cure for people .. Bees of insects also not all insects are harmful or must be destroyed on the contrary.
