Introduction

VMware Fusion* is a desktop virtualization program that lets you run multiple different operating systems on your Mac at the same time. This is great for developers because it allows you to test software on a machine similar to what is used in production. And with VMware Fusion Pro* you can create snapshots that let you rollback changes, or you can clone existing virtual machines to speed up the deployment of test environments.

In this post, we’ll create a CentOS 8 VM so that you can run Linux on your Mac without needing extra hardware.

  1. VMware Fusion 12 VMware Fusion delivers the best way to run Windows on the Mac, and the ultimate development and testing tool for building apps to run on any platform. Ready for macOS 11.0 Big Sur, Fusion 12 supports macOS 10.15 Catalina and includes new features for developers, IT.
  2. VMware Launches Free Fusion for Mac Upgrade Version 8.5. VMware Fusion 8.5 is also optimized for the recently release MacOS Sierra, version 10.12.Features include support for Tabs and Siri.
  3. Key Features include: MacOS Sierra-Ready VMware Fusion Pro lets you launch virtual machines on Macs with MacOS 10.12 Sierra, or safely test the new macOS in a sandbox.; Built for Windows 10 Full support for running Windows 10 as a virtual machine on your Mac.; Flexible App Interaction Unity mode hides the Windows desktop so you can run Windows apps as if they were Mac apps; launching directly.

VMware Fusion delivers a secure and powerful desktop sandbox for running Windows or other operating systems on the Mac without rebooting. Use at home to run Windows DX11 games or for learning with a Personal License, or use Fusion Player to separate Work from Home life with a commercial license. Download VMware Fusion 8 and let your Mac run Windows, Linux or Mac OS X Server.

Prerequisites

Before we begin, you should have VMware Fusion* installed on your Mac and have downloaded the minimal CentOS 8 ISO.

Let’s begin.

Step 1: Create Virtual Machine

Open VMware Fusion, click + then New…

The Easy Install feature would not work for me with version 11.5.6 of VMware Fusion. I’m guessing there’s a problem with the kickstart script because the installation would fail with an error message at the end.

To get around this problem, I used the Create a custom virtual machine option.

Select CentOS 8 64-bit then click Continue.

Select Legacy BIOS then click Continue.

Select Create a virtual disk then click Continue.

Click Customize Settings.

Enter a name and location to save the VM, then click Save.

Click CD/DVD (IDE).

Select Choose a disc or image from the picker.

Browse to the CentOS minimal ISO image then click Open.

Connect the ISO by checking the Connect CD/DVD Drive option.

Close the Settings window then power on the VM.

Step 2: Install CentOS

Select Install CentOS Linux 8 then press Enter.

Wait for the graphical user interface installer to load.

Select your language then click Continue.

Select Installation Destination.

Select the VMware drive then click Done.

Click Begin Installation.

While the files are being copied assign a root password and create a user.

Once the installation is finished, click Reboot.

You are now ready to login with the user, you just created.

Step 3: Configure Network

Once you login to the system for the first time, you will notice the internet does not work. This is because the network needs to be configured. You can enable the network adapter by running the following command:

You should now be able to ping Google:

The network adapter will not be enabled after restarting the OS. In order to make the adapter enable when the OS boots, edit the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ens33 file so that the ONBOOT is set to yes.
