Virtual Software like VirtualBox allows the creation of a virtual machine which can operate parallel to the main operating system. It allows Windows users to be able to enjoy other operating systems like Ubuntu and macOS without the need to buy a separate computer. In this case I will teach you on how to install macOS High Sierra on VirtualBox on Windows PC.

Why macOS High Sierra? New technologies will be used to improve all the important functions of a Mac. The data will be managed better to allow users a fast access with just a click. For added security, this OS will come with in-built encryption, easy backup and crash safe protection.

For the photoholics they will have fun with the better photo editing features this OS will come with. There are many more features that will be in this new OS when it is launched.

For those on Windows you can use this macOS by using VirtualBox. This will install the High Sierra Final as an application that runs within Windows. To enjoy this you need a 64-bit computer that has at least 4GB RAM. In this computer you will be required to download and install the VirtualBox software and download the macOS High Sierra Final image file. You will then be required to create a new virtual machine and install macOS High Sierra on VirtualBox. You will then be able to use the macOS High Sierra within Windows just like you would any other application.

I tried to install the latest update (10.13.1) three times and twice manually, but it remains on 10.13 when I restart the machine. Might just wait until you create a new image?

I am using an HP laptop with 4GB Memory and a Core i3 intel processor with Orical VM.

The initialization gets to the end, pauses, and restarts the virtual box and installation begins again.

I have tried both PIIX3 and ICH9. I have redone step 5 a couple of times. Ideas?

Black screen is all I get. VB is up to date, tried running commands with it closed first and changing the CPU/Ram utilization; no dice. 7700k w/32gb ram. I have the file on an SSD with my other (working) Sierra VM’s.

I have the same issue in Lenovo T510 under Windows 7 only. The same hardware under Ubuntu 16.04 & VB 5.0.40 works fine. In Window 7 & VB 5.0.40 or 5.1.28, both stopped with “Guru Meditation 1155 (VINF_EM_TRIPLE_FAULT)” in VBox.log. Any suggestion what will be useful log to continue troubleshoot this.
