For windows we have SIDCHG and Sysprep !

Is there any equivalent application for MacOS or Any way to change SID on MacOS ?

I found the solution by myself, use "setextradata" command to change SID of macOS in VirtualBox.

For EFI systems:

VBoxManage setextradata "vm name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemUuid" "C381D36C-E6C3-4D76-BE1D-D6C0DDC268B1"

For AHCI systems:

VBoxManage setextradata "vm name" "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcbios/0/Config/DmiSystemUuid" "B5FA3000-9403-81E0-3ADA-F46D045CB676"

*If you do not know how to use "setextradata" commands use this link or use google its very easy:
