I can’t seem to get past “Setting Up Your Mac” screen. I keep seeing the spinning ball of death.

The CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system. Power off or reset the virtual machine.

Hey… great guide but how do you make it so it’s full screen, instead of the small boxed screen? Thanks in advance.


Hey, thank you for this tutorial. The virtual machine works, but it is a bit sluggish. I have increased the RAM and CPU cores in the VM, but it still lags. I have an AMD FX 8350 and have used both the /amd and /amdfx in the bootloader prompt. Any suggestions? Thank you!


This works great, thank you.

You can’t use a later version of virtualbox than 5.0.


I install VMware Tools also create another user account with Admin privilege but I still have Network problem. Any suggestion?

Thanks this loaded up no problem! appreciate the guide!


Firstly, I appreciate your posting. By the way, I followed your progression and downloaded images and files but It didn’t work at all. I am not able to do step 6(I’ve done until step 5). I think this image files broken already…. I should use MAC os asap because I have to set up protools on MAC. Can you fix this problem for me?
