I've got to have different Hardware UUID for software testing purposes. When cloning a VM in Fusion pro 8.5, the clone gets a new MAC address but the hardware UUID in system report in macOS doesn't change.

Any idea how I can assign a new UUID to virtual Mac guest OS?


The text file that Fusion uses to assign this is editable when the VM is powered off (don't suspend, shut down the OS):

  1. Turn off VM
  2. In machine folder, change uuid.bios section in <>.vmx file (f e.g. uuid.bios = "aa aa ...").
  3. In machine folder delete .nvram file
  4. Boot VM

In "About this MAC" you must see enter image description here
