Followed all steps. When I run the VM I get a blank screen and nothing else. Nothing happens no matter how much I wait. Using Virtualbox 5.1.4 on an Ubuntu machine. Help?

Hi,
I had the same thing (black screen but under Windows 8.1).
In Settings -> System -> Motherboard, In the Chipset setting, I’ve changed to PIIX3 (ICH9 before). And no more blackscreen for me (just a problem with my mouse now lol).

David

This worked for me too, thanks.

It worked. Thanks!

Firstly, thanks for putting this together and sharing it.

I followed your instructions and have started El Capitan in my VirtualBox, but only see grey and black screen toggle between each other.

This has been going on for last 5 minutes.

Any pointers on what I can do to fix it?

Thanks

I too am using VB 5.1.4 and receive a blank, black screen. I have read that for the black screen to set the chipset from ICH9 to PIIX3 but that causes the VM to crash upon loading so that does not work for me.

Do we need VB 5.0.x instead of 5.1.x??

Thank you.

How do I make this full screen? It’s also kind of slow.

I followed every single step to the letter and still got a blank screen when I tried to start my El Capitan VM. Then when I rebooted my PC and now it won’t load Windows, even with my startup disc in the drive. Any suggestions?

Emma

Nevermind. I just wasn’t hitting a key quick enough to load my Win DVD. Still working on getting El Capitan going but I like a challenge.

This thing comes with no MoBo serial Number (or it’s lost along the way). Thus, cannot sign in to iCloud for AppStore use. Would be nice to learn how to repair this, but I highly doubt it is possible given Apple security.

If I may ask, how did you create the vdi in the first place?

Thanks for this it works but it’s kind of slow. I was thinking if it can be run on hyper-v? Thanks

Thanks for this! Working on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

To change the screen resolution use :

VBoxManage setextradata “VM name” VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N

Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4 referring to the 640×480, 800×600, 1024×768, 1280×1024, 1440×900 screen resolution respectively.
