MacOS Simple KVM

02 Feb 2020 » kvm, virtual, linux, hackintosh, development

I have a Mac already, in fact I’m writing from it right now, but I need another for space and music creation and to see if I could even do this.


The longest part of this install was quite literally the download. It took forever. The steps to get this setup were fast. I really love the MacOS Operating system and it’s features. I’ll probably look into Fedora to compare as well. The steps to run this were as simple as below:

sudo apt-get install qemu-system qemu-utils python3 python3-pip  # for Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, and PopOS.
git clone https://github.com/foxlet/macOS-Simple-KVM.git
cd macos simple kvm
./jumpstart.sh --mojave

## Create qemu disk image
qemu-img create -f qcow2 MyDisk.qcow2 64G

## Modify the basic.sh script and add these
    -drive id=SystemDisk,if=none,file=MyDisk.qcow2 \
    -device ide-hd,bus=sata.4,drive=SystemDisk \

sudo ./make.sh --add
