MacOS on AMD WMWare help - BSOD when iphone is connected

Hi, I installed MacOS (Big Sur) on VMWare on a AMD Ryzen7 4800HS laptop.

PC spec: HP OMEN - 15.6" Gaming Laptop - AMD Ryzen 7 - 8GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti - 512GB SSD

I added another m2 SSD and 8GB RAM.

Everything works fine. Except that: after I connect an iPhone to the USB port, the Mac OS recognizes it. I click trust on phone, then the host OS Win7 crashes, has the blue screen of death, with fault code: Page Fault on Non-Paged Area. I ran diagnosis on RAM, SSD, no issues.


MacOS is reliable, except the above issue can be duplicated.

I used VMWare Player V15.1. Tried different MacOS (Big Sur, Catalina, etc.), all had same issue.

I have been running MacOS on Intel CPU (i7- 8750H) for 2 years without any issue.

USB is set to 2.0 in VMWare.

Any suggestions is appreciated. If you have no issue on connecting to an iPhone with MacOS on AMD, please let me know too.
