Worked for me, you just have to close VirtualBox and not just the OS X emulator window!

This was it for me. Run cmd commands with VirtualBox closed.

I followed the steps above painstakingly, and when I start the virtual machine it is going into a shell prompt without the Apple setup gui? I am not sure what I might be doing incorrectly?

I’ve got everything exactly the same as it shows in the picture… even the VM’s name… It failed on Missing Bluetooth controller transport, and I have ran step 5 for 5+ times…

Hi,

Open your vm’s .vbox file in notepad or notepad++. Make sure that following lines are present exactly the way here:

I had the same issue and in my vbox file, the values were garbled (i.e. appended by some characters). When I cleaned up these values and reran the VM, It worked prefectly.
