Thanks for the detailed post, using this I was successful in configuring the Mac El Capitan VirtualBox on Windows10 host. Now I want this virtualBox to be recognized by the hostname i.e I should be able to ssh the VirtualBox with hostname with port the ssh port configured in port forwarding rules
e.g:
My host Machine name is MYWindows
I’ve configured the ssh port as 2222 (host port) and 22 as guest port

ssh userName@MYWindows -p 2222

Any help in this regards is most welcome.

After running VirtualBox 5.x.x code in Command Prompt (admin mode), a long param tree appeared then at the bottom it said “VBoxManage.exe: error: Invalid parameter ‘VBoxManage'”. Any clue on how to fix? I am using a Dell Inspiron 17 5000 series, Intel Core i7, with Windows 10 Home, VirtualBox version Version 5.1.22 r115126 (Qt5.6.2).

When starting the VM, the screen changes to the black and white text lines, but never changes into a graphic user interface or anything that can receive an input. Any suggestions?

Is it possible to boot an existing Mac OSX install on the physical disk from within VirtualBox running on Linux? I have a dual boot setup where I am mainly booted into Linux most of the time. I just want to be able to the native Mac OSX inside the VirtualBox. Has anybody been crazy enough to even try this?
