Great Job! Just finished installing on my Surface Pro 4. Everything works perfectly except my webcam. Is it possible to get the webcam working?I would like to use FaceTime.

Wow- great work John.. I did have some loop issues – changed the chipset and I was good.

I am wondering how to get audio input and output working – I am using latest Virtual Box as host and your image as a guest. I got that working now I would like to get the video to be using the full 16×9 laptop display and I need the audio working. This computer is a ASUS i5 Laptop U56E running on a SSD drive.

I am having issues with the OS locking up after I try to remove some icons from the dock, not sure what could be causing the issue. I have a 7700k with VT-D turned on, and two 1080ti (not SLI so they shouldnt cause any issues) and vRAM up to 128MB. There is no kernel panic or anything, the VM simply stops becoming responsive. I have tried decreasing # of cores, and changing chipset and OS X ver.

same cpu, same problem. I have a 7700k. I think the step 5 should be changed for 7700k or Kaby lake CPUs.
