    1. Getting "failed to start the virtual machine error", whats the solution?
    Solution : Use VMware 15.04 as recommended in the video as any VMware version above 15.1 would cause problems especially if you have an AMD rig.

    2. Getting connect Bluetooth keyboard error and cant proceed further?
    Solution : Go to Windows settings and turn off bluetooth and try again. This would fix the problem.

    3. My laptop's built-in keyboard is not working and cant passthrough it, whats the solution?
    Solution : Use a spare USB keyboard just for installation purpose as the problem goes away automatically once macOS is installed or just skip the renaming Virtual HDD/SSD step and proceed further.

    4. Not able to see macOS as an option in VMware, whats the solution?
    Solution : You probably didnt install VMware Unlocker properly, watch my video once again and install it properly.

    Solution : Install Vmware Tools (darwin.iso) properly by watching my video once again.

    6. I updated my macOS Big Sur OS and now i cant start the virtual machine, whats the solution?
    Solution : Make sure that the VMware player is closed then Go to Documents Folder > Virtual Machines Folder > macOS Big Sur Folder > Cut macOS Big Sur.vmdk file and paste it to the desktop > Open Vmware player and delete the macOS Big Sur Virtual machine from the disk by right clicking on it > Create a New Virtual Machine > I will install the Operating System Later > Select Apple Mac OS X and 10.14 from the Drop down Menu > Rename the virtual machine to macOS Big Sur (if you want) > Store Virtual Disk as a Single File and Maximum disk size to 160GB or as per your requirement > Click on Customize Hardware and alott 2 or 4 cores to the VM, 4GB RAM, USB Controller = USB 2.0 and select show all USB devices > Close > Finish > Edit Virtual Machine Settings > Select Harddisk (SATA) and click on remove > Click on Add > Make Sure HardDisk is selected and click on Next > Make sure Sata is Selected and click on Next > Select Use an Existing Virtual Disk and click on Next > Click on Browse and Select the macOS Big Sur.vmdk file saved on the desktop > Finish > Ok > Close VMware player and goto Documents Folder > Virtual Machines Folder > macOS Big Sur Folder > Right Click on macOS Big Sur.vmx file and copy and paste the code as shown in the video as per your system > Change the virtualHW.version = "10" and click on save and close the .vmx file > Open VMware player and Play the macOS VM. You should be able to boot the macOS VM now.

    7. macOS feels sluggish/laggy, whats the solution?
    Answer : No solution. I would recommend you to either install macOS natively on your PC or install Linux OS and passthrough the GPU to macOS VM using KVM method for best macOS experience. Both of these things require macOS compatible components and GPU passthrough method requires either 2 discrete GPUs (either of them should be macOS compatible), one for host machine and one for guest macOS VM or recent intel cpu with on-die GPU + macOS compatible discrete GPU for VM.

  2. Failed to open virtual machine: A file access error occurred on the host or guest operating system.
    error pops up
    what to do sir
    please help

  3. I think it's better to install linux and VM ware and install mac os Big Sur on linux if you don't have 2 GPUs. Because when I used simple KVM it only have 7mb VRAM? And I don't have any discrete GPU. But windows is just to heavy for virtual machine if you have slow laptop.

  4. I connected my iPhone and it asked me to which machine I wanted it to connect, I selected Virtual Machine, and the entire VM machine was hanged, so I did a force shutdown, and then things got worse, the VM was unable to start the OS, saying "Waiting for connection", so I had to delete everything and redo the entire process, Why is it so?

  5. After setting up my VM my main PC software takes significantly longer to boot up from a powered off state and my keyboard randomly stops working and doesn’t detect my keys. Any solution?
