Hi, for some reason every time I start the VM it goes to a black screen and nothing happens.

I left the machine running and attempted a reinstall, but the same result.

Windows 7 service pack 1 x64
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210 CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50GHz
Ram 16GB

Virtual Box 5.1.x

Host OS : Windows 10 Home

For those having problems such as vm being terminated, see how I resolved it:

1.Downloaded an old version of virtualbox 5.0.3.0
2.Under general settings, set the Version to Mac OS (64-bit)
3. Under Motherboard, set Chipset to PIIX3
4. Under Acceleration, set Paravirtualisation Interface to KVM

Hello, thank for the great tutorial. Every time I start the virtual machine, a cmd appears and is loading stuff but I didn’t see the the mac startup page. Could you help me fix it?

Hello! As soon as I start the virtual machine, which I created specially for this, I get a black screen with some loading procedures and it gets stucked at one point where it says:

Sandbox: SoftwareUpdateCo (188) deny(1) authorization-right-obtain system.install.app-store-software.standard-user

It just hangs there and nothing moves.

I am using VirtualBox 5.0 in windows 10 on a XPS 15 with an i5. Already tried step 5

Did you ever figure this out? I read it would be in /Extra but seems to fail the mount process for me.

There is a guru error that will appear after following all of this labeling the machine as corrupt and incapable of being run. Followed all the steps in this to a T and did them twice just in case. Still encountering the same error.

I get stuck on the part where I select the image. I browse to vmdk file OS X 10.11 El Capitan Retail and the create option is greyed out. What am I missing ?

I had the same problem. Mine was caused by a permissions issue. If you are running linux this might help:

chown john:john osx.vmdk

Of course you will need to replace john with your username/usergroup. Also, the filename is different because I hate spaces.

1st question: I would rather like to download Mac OS from the App Store on my iMac in order to I get it from a trustworthy source? Can I do this?

2nd question: could I also host it on Linux or does it have to be Windows 10 for some reason?
