General chat and support for running on a Virtual Machine.
Hi all,

Many thanks to the fantastic guide posted at https://vmware.amd-osx.com/ . This is one of the most clearly laid out and detailed guide I've seen.

I am at the step 'Select "Mac OS X" and leave it to install. This may take a while.'

It has been stuck at 'Installation in progress. Calculating time remaining..' for a few hours now (I'm using a Ryzen 3950x on an MSI x570 Ace motherboard). It moves between that message and 'About 12 minutes remaining' every 5 or 10 minutes.

In vmware player, when setting up the virtual machine I also noticed that there was no drop down for the number of cores, it just had one drop down for the number of processors of which I selected 1. Other than that I followed the instructions to a tee.

Thanks for any help in advance,

I left the install over night and it managed to complete. It took many hours.

I change the drive configuration to NVME drive as that is the type of drive I have. I am getting good disk performance in Black magic speed test around 1.2 Gigabytes per second read and write.

I have also changed the number of processors to 4. I still haven't found out how to change it to 1 and choose 4 cores. The dropdown is not available in my version. Other than that the vm is working really well. Vmware tools makes the display and graphics great.
