Setting the default boot device
Once macOS is succesfully installed, you can select the macOS partition on the boot screen (OpenCore), with ctrl+enter to set it as the default boot device. That means it will boot up the VM without booting the macOS Installer. This will prevent OpenCore from default booting the installer.
Changing VM settings
Here are some guides on how to change the VM settings to best fit your needs:
- add memory and change cpu core counts
- set up bridged networking
- add passthrough hardware (for GPUs and Sound Cards),
- or use sound without a sound card
- tweak the screen resolution
- turn off verbose
To make the VM run smoother and faster, look here: https://github.com/sickcodes/osx-optimizer
If the mouse is not aligned properly, edit the basic.sh file and change
-usb -device usb-kbd -device usb-tablet \ to
-usb -device usb-kbd -device usb-mouse \ or the other way around.
If you get an error that says access denied, run
sudo ./basic.sh which will give it admin privelages.
If you get an error that looks like:
