I got a 2013 iMac with Mountain Lion (10.8.5 now) and incompatible with Snow Leopard. I need SL anyway.
Giving up all my old applications and buying new ones is not acceptable. First, this is not my way of thinking and, second, some cannot be replaced.
Many posts say that you can use Snow Leopard with VirtualBox but I could not find anywhere the "how to" (in this particular configuration).
For instance, I followed these 2 protocols, almost similar:
but they use Windows as host system and something is not working (for me) with Mountain Lion.
I made many attempts, with VirtualBox 4.2.18, using pretty much everything: Snow Leopard DVD, SL Server DVD, a
.dmg of both. I've also got Combo 10.6.8 updates for both (but I'm not sure if it can be used before installing). With another MacBook, I managed to install a SLS on external hard drive and update to 10.6.8. Was unable to use it anyway.
Inevitably, I ended up with the message:
FATAL: No bootable medium found! System halted.
I have no idea of what support to use and even, probably important, if it should be set on Primary or Secondary Master? (in Settings / Storage)
Is it possible at all?
Would it work better with VMware Fusion? Anybody successful?
