Virtualbox has the option for a MacOS virtual machine in it’s New VM dialog, but we will need to make further adjustments to make it truly Mac-ready. Pop open Virtualbox, and Create a new Virtual Machine. Name this MacOS Mojave, and set it to Mac OS X (64. The MacBook Air 2020 definitely can get hot. It may be even a little hotter than it would otherwise be as most of the tests I have done were in the first 2-3 days of having the laptop, so I’m hopeful overtime and maybe with some software updates it won’t get.

With M1 Macs mere days away for early adopters, those who need to run virtual machines on their Macs may have a bumpy time ahead.

It is important to note that currently available versions of Parallels® Desktop for Mac cannot run virtual machines on Mac with Apple M1 chip. Good news: A new version of Parallels Desktop for Mac that can run on Mac with Apple M1 chip is already in active development.

When Apple Silicon Mac was first announced during the keynote at WWDC on June 22 of this year, Apple demoed a Parallels Desktop for Mac prototype running a Linux virtual machine flawlessly on Apple Silicon. Since WWDC, our new version of Parallels Desktop which runs on Mac with Apple M1 chip has made tremendous progress. We switched Parallels Desktop to universal binary and optimized its virtualization code; and the version that we are eager to try on these new MacBook Air, Mac mini and MacBook Pro 13″ looks very promising.

VMWare Fusion isn’t ready yet either, according to this tweet:

So excited for todays announcements from @Apple!

Even when these and other virtualization tools are ready,1 running Windows as a VM atop a M1 Mac probably isn’t going to be. So far, all the public has seen running virtually on M1 Macs is ARM-based Linux, back at WWDC.

Microsoft has a version of Windows running on ARM chips, but as of this summer, things didn’t look great for getting it to run virtually on the new Macs:

“Microsoft only licenses Windows 10 on ARM to OEMs,” says a Microsoft spokesperson in a statement to The Verge. We asked Microsoft if it plans to change this policy to allow Windows 10 on ARM-based Macs, and the company says “we have nothing further to share at this time.”

That said, ARM Windows is getting better. Back in September, Microsoft announced that the ARM version of Windows 10 is gaining x64 emulation:

We are excited about the momentum we are seeing from app partners embracing Windows 10 on ARM, taking advantage of the power and performance benefits of Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. We heard your feedback and are making Microsoft Edge faster while using less battery, and announced that we will soon release a native Microsoft Teams client optimized for Windows 10 on ARM. We will also expand support for running x64 apps, with x64 emulation starting to roll out to the Windows Insider Program in November. Because developers asked, Visual Studio Code has also been updated and optimized for Windows 10 on ARM. For organizations, we’re committed to helping them ensure their apps work with Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 Apps on ARM64 devices with App Assure.

Before this, the ARM version of Windows could only emulate 32-bit applications. It’s a nice improvement, and maybe one day it will matter to Mac users.

  1. Oh, and Boot Camp is totes dead. Docker is currently busted, but should work in the future. ↩
(mod edit: the solution to this long topic seems to be here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=90446&start=75#p470879 from '63BottlesOfBeer': run the VirtualboxVM.app in low resolution)
Hi all, I have been using VirtualBox for one of my class project that requires Ubuntu. Recently I switched from a MacBook Pro late 2013 to a new MBP 2018, and I setup virtualbox with same settings on the new computer. However, what went perfectly fine on the old computer now becomes very sluggish on the new mac.
I do not use VM for anything graphical rendering related, the vm is slow in basic moving around windows and typing (in terminal, Eclipse, anywhere) By sluggish I mean slow response of mouse moving, keyboard typing, worst is identify one keyboard input or mouse click as many repeated ones.
Here is the information for running VM on both machines:

Macbook Air 2020 Virtualbox Free


1. This is very slow on typing and all interactions
VM: Version 5.2.22 r126460 (Qt5.6.3), no Guest Additions in guest
Host: macOS Mojave on 10.14.1 (64) on MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018), 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7, 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4, Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB (with Radeon Pro 560X 4096 MB)
Guest: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (64), Assigned 8192 MB Base Memory + 64 MB Video Memory, 2 core.
2. In comparison, This runs fine (older computer):

Virtualbox On Macbook Pro

VM: Version 5.2.22 r126460 (Qt5.6.3), no Guest Additions in guest
Host: macOS Mojave on 10.14.1 (64) on MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013), 2.6GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB (with NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB)
Guest: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (64), Assigned 8192 MB Base Memory + 64 MB Video Memory, 2 core. (Same VM provided by my instructor)
I think the reason should point to how the newer model deal with rendering related to screen size.
3. I tried increasing or decreasing memory, VRAM, and processor, from default settings, the situation did not get better, but when I tried a exterior display (using DuetDisplay to extend to an iPad Air 2) the response of typing and moving mouse becomes fast.
4. Then I tried using it in window mode (small window, 1/4 size of screen), the performance got even better, almost the same as it is on my old mac)
I think it is an issue with VBox having to 'move too many pixels around' as mentioned in several posts I found, but essentially the two models have similar resolution and ppi (2880x1800, 220 ppi). Thus I think it should be a capability issue of VBox regarding to newer models of Macs.
I could use small screen but my sights are not very good and I would really prefer a full-screen display with larger text to make my eyes a bit more comfortable...
The logs are in the attachment, I numbered them according to the orders in my post.
Hopefully there could be some solutions some day! If it really is a bug, I hope devs could solve it some day as well!

Thank you very much to reading the post and looking for solutions! Wish you all a great day!
