Just wanted to share my experience when I install Mac OS. I also encounter a problem that show error on

ApplePC:motifyPlatformASPM – failed to register with IOPlatformplugin
**** [IOBluetoothfamily][SearchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] — Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport !

and step 5 should resolve the issue. I tried this many times and the error still persist. I just resolved it when I run the CMD as normal app and not run as administrator. Maybe you can try this if you encounter same problem.

Thanks for the great Tutorial Techsviewer!
God bless!

Hello – I’ve tried ALL sorts of combos to get past the errors , and it comes up!
But – it says “This version of Mac OS is not supported on this platform”
“Reason: Virtualbox”

any suggestions? (VB 5.1,18)
NOT VT-x on motherboard (VT-d only)
virtualization enabled, UEFI, etc.

Thanks
