Installing macOS Mojave 10.14 Developer Beta on Proxmox 5.2

This tutorial for installing macOS Mojave has been adapted for Proxmox 5.2 from Kholia’s GitHub project for installing into vanilla KVM. There is more documentation there which will help out with enabling extra features and diagnosing problems!


I’ll assume you already have Proxmox 5.2 installed. You also need a real Mac available in order to download Mojave from the App Store and build the installation ISO.

Your Proxmox host computer must have an Intel CPU (I believe you would need a custom Mac kernel in order to use an AMD CPU). Your CPU must be at least as new as Nehalem, which was the first CPU generation to bear the “Core” i5/i7 branding. Older CPUs will cause the finder to repeatedly crash after installation completes (with an Illegal Instruction exception in the graphics code).

Mojave is currently in developer preview, so you need to be a registered Apple developer to download the installer. This requires a $99/year subscription fee. As soon as it’s out of preview, it should be available on the app store for non-developers. Continue reading Installing macOS Mojave 10.14 Developer Beta on Proxmox 5.2
