How to install MacOS Sierra guest on VirtualBox on Ubuntu host

Well, yeah, I was desperate to debug an app on mac OS so … You can have it run on Ubuntu host with VirtualBox.

It works on other versions of Ubuntu and VirtualBox. Haven’t tested mac OS Mojave.

If you try it, drop a line on the comments below to share with other desperate developers/sysadmins.

Prerequisites:

  1. VirtualBox  v4.x.x & v5.x.x Installed. Tested on v5.1.22 r115126 (Qt5.5.1)
  2. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (that’s you host OS)
  3. MacOS Sierra (that’s your guest OS) (Download ready-made image)

Steps:

  1. Download and extract the VM image.
  2. Open VirtualBox and create a new virtual machine and give it a name, but, choose the ready-made image instead of creating a new disk.
  3. Close VirtualBox and run the shell commands shown below. Notice: you have to replace “Virtual Machine Name” between the quotes with your VM’s name!
  4. Start the VM and follow the installation.
  5. Enjoy.
