Hi, thank you the installation was a complete success to Windows 8.1.
It’s a little choppy and slow when I used.
Is there anyway to speed it up and make it smoother?
Thanks in advanced!

Hi there, I’m having issues booting OSX. I’ve done everything detailed in the guide and when I go to run the machine all I get is a blank screen. It’s been like that from about 10 minutes now. Thanks.

I got the blank screen too. My problem was because I left the chipset as ICH9 because I misread the instructions and thought it was the same as IHC9. Changed it to PIIX3 and no more blank screen. Woohoo!

I was having the same issue, what I did:

On General Settings:

– Version Mac OS X (64 bit) (not OS X El Capitan 64 bit)

After this, the message disappears and was able to run MacOS on VB.

Hi. I just successfully launched this on VirtualBox 5.1.4. Just make sure to follow the instructions and remember to have VirtualBox extensions installed. I just slightly modified the machine to have: 64 MB VRAM, 3D acceleration enabled and USB 3.0 support. 🙂

Some troubleshooting notes: Problem – Black Screen When Starting VM Solution – Re-run Step 5 WITHOUT the Runas Administrator step. You need those settings in your user context, not Administrators. Problem – Hanging at text startup screen (Bluetooth error is common last message) Solution – Modify VM Settings, go to System Tab, Set Chipset to PIIX3, Instructions say either is fine, but only PIIX3 will boot.
