Hi Gulam ,
I’ve installed Mojave 10.14.4 on Vmware workstation pro 15.1.0,Win 10, via a .vmdk file, for download and using Garageband specially ,instead of working on it in my ipad ,…but long story short , it doesn’t work properly ,so now I need to try the mentioned method ,
1- do I need to redownload mac mojave , this time the installer one, or is there a way to convert .vmdk to dwg or iso file to creatie the bootable USB ?
2- is it functional to dual boot on one drive , while Win 10 is installed on it ?

Hi,
This happens because of the USB flash drive. Epically if it is USB 2.0.

Hi Ghulam,
how to install Mojave on the HyperV virtual machine?

Reply

So far as I know, you can’t. Hyper-V is a type-1 hypervisor, which means VMs running under it run closer to the metal. This provides performance benefits over other virtualization types.
