If you’re willing to hands-on macOS Mojave and give it a try before you really install on your Mac, here’s how to do that with a quick set up Mojave on a virtual machine. Here is How to Install macOS Mojave on Parallels Desktop.

This is a clever idea that if for some reasons you might not want to install on your actual computer. More importantly, there are tons of reasons why you would not install this on your working computer. One of the reasons might be conflicting with software or program or not getting installed or perhaps maybe not working with other different things like network, sound, and other. In this case, you might want to install it aside from your original OS.

So, what’s better idea than installing on a virtual machine aside from your operating system. This is probably a mature idea to get around with installing Mojave on a virtual machine (VM) before you actually go through it on your real Mac. The best part is, whether you get failed with installation or not properly work with things, you’ll always have the option to rollback to re-installation or deleting the virtual machine without affecting your OS. Parallels make it handy and quick with installing on a virtual machine that is entirely painless without hassle. So, let’s get started.
