Hi there!

Thanks for this: I’ve installed it under Win10, solved the black screen and the resolution problem thanks to comments and replies, and now everything works fine. Thanks a lot!

So this is great! Is there any way around this? Also, if you update your OS from the app store will that cause a problem with this run?

I had installed El Capitan in Windows 10 Anniversary update on VB 5.0 and it was working correctly. After upgrading Windows 10 to Creators Update, VB stopped working. I had to upgrade VB to 5.1.18 but the virtual machine just freezed after one minute. I couldn’t use it. I installed VMWare instead and it works correctly.

When installing vmware, do not install the enhanced keyboard driver. It will mess with Windows and you won’t be able to type in Cortana or Edge or in Settings.

The VMWare method is way simpler compared to VBox. Install version 12.5, the latest and use keygen to crack it. The follow instructions on https://techsviewer.com/how-to-install-mac-os-x-el-capitan-on-vmware-on-pc/ to patch VMWare to add support for macOS.

Everything went just fine, however when I plug any USB device the MAC freezes and needs to be rebooted, any idea why?

Hi, Thanks for the instructions, I did all the steps, but when starting the VM I get the black screen and nothing else happens.

Me too.
Solution: change the video memory to maximum then it goes well.

Installation went without issue on a Surface Pro 4 with VirtuaBox 5.??. The machine gets hung up when it boots though. I might be a memory issue. As I have the low-end Surface Pro edition with only 4GB of memory, I had to cut the virtual machine memory size down.
is it possible to install OSX on VBox at all
Do I need to change the parameters to VBoxManage>

I got out of Command by hitting Enter a several times. I made a few changes as well to get it started. Changed video to 128 MB, and enabled 3D. It’s up and running!

I am stuck at the Shell> prompt with the flashing cursor. Cant get any further. Any help would be great!

I’m still working to boot this on Debian, but one thing I didn’t saw here at it was necessary is to raise Monitor video to 128 MB, otherwise it won’t even try to boot.
