This worked perfect! Excellent job. Thank you… However – I cannot sign into iMessage. Do you have any ideas? I’m not getting an error message. It looks like it tries and the then goes back to the sign in window.

Hi,

This tutorial works well for me, thx you 🙂

The thing is that my guest screen resolution is like 1024*768, and i would change it to a higher resolution.. Is that possible ?

Thx 🙂

Hi , thank you for your work, I wanted to know if there was a solution to recognize the nvidia graphics card, for now I have a lot of lag, I install the bootloader version 5 virtualbox but it does not solve the problem, I’d also switch to full screen mode, you have a solution for this?
Thank you

I followed the directions posted to load and run on my Windows 10 64bit machine with 8GB ram. It keeps telling me that a critical error happened and to stop the VM. Any ideas?

Hi there, thanks for this awesome tool. It works amazingly. Where and when will the bootloader be upload. Really, I’m just wondering where will it become available? Also, can you give us any fix for iCloud? I can’t sign in as is says it can’t verify the identity of the Mac (which makes sense). Please fix this as I want to use the app store and iMessage. Thanks again!

I changed the boot device to the hard disk. It keeps displaying the following:
Error allocating 0x800 pages at 0x0000000001c00000 alloc type 2
Error loading kernel cache (0x9)
Boot Failed. Mac Boot
Boot Failed. EFI DVD/CDROM
