I’ve gotten the VM to work and run, however the VM is not accepting my apple ID, and wont allow me to create a new one. Is anyone else having this issue? I have to same problem on my el Capitan VM, and was not able to resolve it. Is there a way to solve this?

Thank you for your time.

Hello,
Everything is OK at home, thank you very much.
On the other hand for the change of resolution this does not work. In addition it totally crashes the solution.
Too bad not having a solution that works.

Hi great guide! On Step 5 I find it helps if you restart your computer after entering the commands into CMD. Usually when I don’t do that the VM will hang saying bluetooth/driver errors.

Hey thanks so much for the tutorial! I got almost everything up and running, the only problem is that the sound doesn’t work. I tried to change the sound settings but it just says “No output devices found”. How can I fix this?

I am getting error message after adding the code to my Virtual Box..
Error Details: Failed to open a session for the virtual machine MacOS Sierra
AMD-V is disabled in the BIOS (or by host OS) (VERR_SVM_DISABLED).

I am guessing something is disabled in the bios which does not allow it to run… Advice needed.
