This may come late in the discussion, but, has
OVMF been tested with Mac OS X?
I don't think Apple considers VMs an acceptable usage environment for
OS X. Please correct me if I am mistaken.
Their EULA explicitly says that OS X Server can be run in VMs, as long as the VM is
running on Apple hardware (VMWare Fusion, Parallels Desktop and VMWare ESXi for Mac are
For OS X non-server it just says "must run on Apple hardware" nothing specific
as on VM, but none of the previously named took the risk.
VirtualBox is almost able to run OS X now but with some tricks and no "officially
As currently OS X searches for an encryption key on the hardware, and there has been code
for providing it if being known in QEMU, as long as the requirement is reading that code
on runtime on the real hardware, there should be no legal problems.
MacOnLinux allowed to virtualize OS X on PowerPC and never received communications from
Apple, even if it allowed to run on non-Apple PowerPC machines.
PearPC emulated enough of a PowerMac to make OS X run and also never received
communications from Apple.
In any case, IMHO, it's up to the user to respect or violate the EULA, we just provide
the knife, it's not our fault it's used for assassination and not for cutting
