You also want to find out whether your processor is made by "Intel" or "AMD".

Computers with AMD processors will not work with Lion. General Requirements. Step 1: Prep. Step 2: Create a new virtual machine. Virtualbox lets you run Mac OSX within Windows by creating a virtual machine, which is a program that simulates a normal computer. To create a virtual machine, open up Virtualbox and click "New" on the upper left. If your version of Virtualbox asks you to choose between bit and bit, be sure to choose bit. Choosing bit will result in a critical "Guru Meditation" error later on. The RAM will be given back to your normal computer after you turn Virtualbox off.

You'll need to create a new hard disk for the virtual machine. Otherwise, just choose VDI. I recommend creating a dynamically expanding disk; the only other option, fixed-size storage, will eat up your hard drive. Step 3: Give your new virtual machine an operating system. Your virtual machine will now be created. But don't stop now--you still need to change a few settings before your machine will actually work. Your new virtual machine will show up on the left column of the Virtualbox start page. I have a question, what is the su password i can't find it.

First off, thank you very much. I have an issue though, even with beamoff and vmtools.. Is it just the cpu or could there be something else going on? When it's running, nothing else is.

I am getting this error: The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine. Once I try to run the Virtual Machine. Please Help. I'm having the same problem, but this error only appears once. After this error, the next attempt results in "the firmware encountered an unhandled exception, VM cannot boot". If I power off and on the host machine, the same error sequence occurs.

I have unlocked using the latest 2. I don't know how to allow a 'boot flag' to be entered. To my knowledge, the standard Apple boot loader does not allow flags beyond -x, -s, and -v to be entered. Instead of a VM, maybe try a hackintosh, which installs to a drive, not to a VM. At least the boot loader can enter many more flags. Please help. Hi all, i am trying to install os x on vmware but evertime i cant see the MAC OS option, I already tried many unlockers to go through but all efforts in vain.

However i have no other locations as options. What can i do? This worked perfectly, saved my ass on some quick testing needed on Mac in a Windows dev environment. Thanks for the write-up!

Also, in the virtualbox directions, you have the line "On the "Network" section, we make sure the options are as follows" but then there are no network settings listed.

It keeps the same way after a reboot, any ideas or suggestions on how to proceed? As a reference my account is not really blocked, I do can access the apple developer portal, but I everytime I try to download xcode the same happens.

Yes, guest additions are not an option. You can try the vmware route, since a user below reports success using vmtools and xcode. I can tell VM Tools are correctly installed because now after a reboot the mouse is smoother and the full screen button correctly sets the OS X to full screen resolution which didn't happen before installing VM Tools, but once I enter the App Store and click install on Xcode I still get this:.

I'll try to manually download the 6GB Xcode installer form the Apple developer portal later on, but as of now it doesn't work yet, before or after upgrading to Well, I'm happy to report Xcode is now installed and so far is running good : VM Tools didn't solve my previous problem with the App Store, but a manual install with the Xip file from the apple developer portal did the trick.

After the installation, did you notice any change in the resolution? Perfect tutorial, very easy to follow step by step. I followed it and successfully install and working perfectly. Thanks a lot for great tutorial, really appreciate it. Messages and FaceTime won't let me log in as my Apple account, as requested by the apps. They just keep trying but never succeed. Any ideas how to fix that? Did you install VMtools from the link we describe on the article?

A member below was able to connect after installing Vmtools. However, it could have to do with some Apple ID verification system I'm not aware of. I have installed VMtools a couple times, using the files you specify. It seems to complete ok. How can I test to see if it is installed and working? Nothing seems different after it is installed. Should there be some tool icons or menu options someplace?

Yes, I used the vmtools from that link. I have installed it several times and it always says it was successful. I don't see any vmtools icons anyplace on the host or the guest. Unity isn't available. My video works fine. My BT Apple touch pad works but no gestures work. I am guessing that these limitations are normal. Other users refer to the message app not working as well. I don't think there's anything else you can do. I'm used to using Parallels, and their tools allow some slick integration of the two OSs and access from each OS to the other's filesystem.

Is this what VM Tools should do? When my OSX image boots up I get a complaint that a disk isn't recognized and offers to [initialize][ignore][eject] it. I don't know what disk that is, so I just say "ignore". Is this a second virtual drive that VMware is trying to set up that I do need to initialize? I don't want to accidentally wipe out the wrong drive. The only issue I have is that I can't download xCode, it says the OS version is too low but when I check updates there aren't any.

Hello Damien and thanks for your comment. A user below was able to install Xcode manually with the Xip file from the apple developer portal. You can try it and see if it works for you. Hi, yep worked perfectly Thank you for such an incredibly well written process!

Thanks Michael. Although we didn't test it with the macOS machine, we assume it works the same way as the older version. If you succeed on installing the vm though, let us know to confirm it. So I look for a possible reason for that problem search in the InsanelyMac forum. Therein I found a hint to use the latest version of the Unlocker tool. These can be downloaded in the forum or direct from GitHub by using the files from the developers project. Hi Elena, thanks for the very well written tutorial! I followed it to the end using VirtualBox, however when I start the virtual machine I just get a black screen.

I tried with the minimum requirements 4GB RAM, 2 cores, and so on once and then I tried to increase the number of cores to 4. I also tried to enter the command lines to configure the VM twice, but the result is always the same. The only step that I couldn't follow is the one about verifying that virtualization is enabled, because I can't find the option in my BIOS I have an ASUS with intel core i processor, which should support virtualization as far as I know. Any idea what can be wrong? Could you try the VMware solution? It sounds like VBox's problem, not your computer's.

I assume you run Windows? Can you also find the exact model of your mobo? Virtualization should be enabled by default, and I assume you'd had a relevant error if that was the problem. Hello again! K31CD-K Is this the kind of information you asked for? By the way, I followed the tutorial for the VMWare configuration and that worked on the first try! Nonetheless, I'd be happy to try to solve the issue if you think the discussion may be useful for other users. Thanks for the support! I did all steps from the AMD section but my machine doesn't load the icons on the topbar.

I'm using the same processor FX and I couldn't find anything to fix that. Also, I'd like to know if it's possible to change the resolution without messing up the machine. Can I do that?

Hello Gabriel. Which topbar are you referring? Can you post a screenshot?

In my tests I didn't change the resolution, but if you install vmtools, it will probably work without problems. I found out a way to change the resolution directly from the boot menu, so that ain't a problem anymore. The topbar I was refering was the main one, the one with the Apple logo and all other options. Here's how it is right now note that the icons aren't loaded correctly and instead are represented by green glitches :. Apparently there is a glitch that has to do with the graphics card.
