MacOS VM on qubes

Has anybody succeeded in installing a MacOS VM (or other) on qubes? What was your recipe?

Tried the following:

  • Booting qube from different versions of Niresh ISO (Catalina, Mojave, Lion)
    RESULT: UNSUCCESSFUL
    SeaBIOS loaded correctly, but Qube halted before any GUI loaded.

  • Creating HVM from ready-made MacOS VMDK image
    RESULT: UNSUCCESSFUL
    SeaBIOS said no bootable device found.

  • Booting from Hackintosh Yosemite ISO
    RESULT: UNSUCCESSFUL
    GUI loaded correctly, but then kernel panic occurred.

  • Trying to create Xen file equivalent from Kholia’s OSX-KVM project
    RESULT: UNSUCCESSFUL
    Lack of sufficient knowledge about Xen. Still a work in progress.

MY MOTIVATION FOR DOING SO:
It would be nice to be able to have it alongside my Windows 10 qube that I keep around for:

  • when my family asks me for MacOS technical support. (GNU+Linux satisfied all my daily driver needs wonderfully)
  • development purposes
  • testing malware safely
  • showing people my single laptop running multiple OSes simultaneously

Legality issues aside (I was doing this on a MacBook Air 4,2, before anyone brings it up :stuck_out_tongue: ), I’m sure there would be enough demand out there for this. Especially now that Big Sur likes to ‘phone home’ almost as much as Windows…
