How to Install Mac OS X Yosemite on AMD Processors on VirtualBox on Windows?

AMD Processors are compatible with Apple’s operating system, but somehow coders and programmers have managed to Install mac os on AMD Processors on Virtual Machines such as the Vmware and Virtualbox. In Intel processors, I mean 4th generation higher we can simply add the Unblocker tool to enable Apple Services. And we are using macOS on them exactly under Guest operating system of Apple. But when it comes to AMD Processors they have managed to create a bootloader containing the code to use Mac OS in it. In that bootloader, only AMD, Haswell, and Some HP laptops are compatible with it. Also, Don’t forget that the macOS will be boot under the guest operating system of Windows, not Apple. So, I that’s why today I have decided to show you How to Install Mac OS X Yosemite on AMD Processors on VirtualBox on Windows? So, let’s get started.

Install Mac OS X Yosemite on AMD Processors on VirtualBox

Step 1. Install VirtualBox

You can Install VirtualBox yourself because it is so simple and easy but if you don’t know follow the below instructions. If you know the Installation process then skip step 1.

  • Double-click on the setup to start the installation Wizard.
  • On the Welcome Screen, click next.
  • On the Custom setup page again click next.
  • Decide you want to add shortcuts or no and click next.
  • On the Network Interface Windows click Yes.
  • Now click on the Install to install VirtualBox.
  • When the Installation is done click finish.

Step 2. Extract Mac OS X Yosemite

Mac OS X Yosemite is compressed using WinRAR because of its size. Without extraction, its size is 8 GB but with once it is zipped, it becomes 6 GB. For Extracting the Mac OS X Yosemite you can use the WinRAR or 7-Zip. 7-Zip is an open source which can zip and unzip files but WinRAR is not free & you need to buy if you want to use.

Step 3. Create A new Virtual Machine

Launch the VirtualBox select New> after that Name the Virtual Machine whatever you want but leave the guest operating system as Windows as it is. Then specify the amount of RAM but I recommend you to put it at least 2 GB.

When you reached the Hard Disk Window select use an existing Virtual hard disk File.  And locate the Mac OS X Yosemite Bootload VMDK File and load it.

Step 4. Attach Mac OS X Yosemite VMDK File

Once the Bootloader is added it is time for you to add the Mac OS X Yosemite VMDK File. To add it open the created Virtual Machine’s settings> then head over to the storage click on the Plus icon and add the Mac OS X Yosemite. Select Add Hard disk> choose an existing Virtual Disk and locate the Mac OS X Yosemite VMDK File.

Add a New Hard Disk

Once you are done with the settings > click Ok to save them.

Step 5. Install macOS Yosemite on VMware

The Installation process is really simple and you can install it without any problem. But the only problem is that other PCs or rather Intel Processors can naturally support macOS. But HP, AMD, and Haswell you have to type the Custom Kernal In order to Install.

  • In HP laptops you have to type the Kernal /hp or /hp1
  • In Haswell, you need to type /Haswell

But in AMD Processors the kennels are listed below:

  • /amd
  • /amd1
  •  /amd2
  • /amd64
  • /amd32 (its actually a 64 bit kernel)
  • /amdfx

In order to use the Kernal, start the Virtual Machine and it will be directly in the Kenal window, where you need to type your Kernal and hit enter on the keyboard.

Mention the Kernal Name

Once you typed the Kernal, wait until the Gray Screen should go away and you will on the welcome screen.

  • On the welcome window select your country and click continue.
  • Select your Keyboard Layout and click continue.
  • Select Local Internet and click Continue.
  • Select Don’t Transfer any information to this mac and click continue.
  • Agree to the Terms and conditions and click continue.
  • Type your Account Name and Password and click continue.
  • Click continue on the diagnostics and usage.
  • Now, wait until the mac should set up.

Hi, Daniele
Install the VirtualBox Extention Pack, then head over to the settings of the VM> USB, and Enable the USB 3.0. Next Go to the System tab> Motherboard, here you have to uncheck the box of Floppy, and make sure that the below settings are checked.
Hard Disk
Enable I/O APIC
Enable EFI (Special OSes only)
Hardware Clock in UTF Time

Unfortunately a kernel panic happens at the grey screen… with plenty of error codes…

I’m using an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X cpu.

Loading of Hackintosh stoped on 50%.
I have processor AMD A8-74010 APU with AMD Radeon R5 Graphics.

I made a mistake: it was with Virtuam Box of course….

Wimsomnia November 29, 2018 at 9:08 pm

Hi Ghulam,

I followed your advice and installed Yosemite with VMware.

When I get to the screen where I have to enter the kernel. I get a grey screen with Hackintosh Zone on it. I left one open for about half an hour, didn’t work. I tried all AMD-types: AMD itself and then AMD1, 2, 64, 32 and AMDFX. Always the same result.

Do you have an idea what I should enter in the console to get further?

Thanks again for your help!!
