I just recently installed Yosemite in Virtualbox. Here's the installation video I followed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYMEb0ZCfes
My OS is Windows and I'm trying to run Mac using Virtualbox.
I had no problems with booting and stuff. After booting, Mac installation settings appeared, then the system asked me to set log in details (full name, username, password). However, while I am retyping my desired password, the screen suddenly turned black. I waited and did nothing. The next thing it showed was the start up screen where it asks for my username and password.
I tried entering my username and password, but it won't work. I knew I haven't completed setting my log-in details due to the screen turning black. I searched for possible solutions, one thing I'd like to try is to use Recovery Mode and reset the password (http://www.macworld.com/article/2868032/what-to-do-if-your-mac-refuses-to-accept-your-password.html).
However though, can't figure out how to key 'Command-R'. Does anyone know how?
Also, it would be great if someone could suggest other things that might work if ever pw reset through Recovery Mode fails. I'd appreciate it a lot.
