Managed to solve it. Eject the VirtualBox image from: Finder > Devices Now allow the exception in: System Preferences > Security & Privacy Finally but not least click Allow button so that way the developer with the name "Oracle America, Inc" will be accepted and the installer using that certificate will run just fine (basically this installer is ...

Does not work on Mavericks and Yosemite There is no way to legitimately get the file without having access to a Mac, and a licensed copy of the OS via a purchase (unless you are a member of the Developer Program, for which you can expect to pay far more than the cost of the OS, what with it being free). But if you can blag some access time on a Mac, then ...

It's not by default. If you have installed Guest Additions, then you can do this: Start the VM Go to Machine > Settings in the file menu. Go to the General tab, then Advanced. Set the Shared Clipboard setting to Disabled, Guest to Host, Host to Guest or Bidirectional.

High Sierra comes with a new security feature: Secure Kernel Extension Loading, which blocks kernel extension loading. The implementation appears to be questionable. To allow the loading of some non-Apple kernel extension you have to either allow execution in Preferences > Security & Privacy > General: or disable the security feature with a Terminal ...

By default it's the right ⌘ (Command) Key. The left ⌘ (Command) Key does not work because it is set as the Host (Meta) Key in VirtualBox. And they can be swapped simply by replacing the Host Key with the right ⌘ (Command) Key, in Preferences > Input > Virtual Machine > Host Key Combination.

If your host system is OS X, you can follow the instructions on: http://ntk.me/2012/09/07/os-x-on-os-x/ Requirement: - Install OS X.app purchased in Mac App Store - iesd VirtualBox Settings: - Operating System Version: Mac OS X (64 bit) - Base Memory: 2048 MB (larger is better) - Enable EFI In the lastest VirtualBox, all the default settings work well. ...

The answer above by @stuffe won't work on Mavericks. Apparently Apple has changed the format of the ESD image and it's no longer bootable. Looking around I've found a couple of pointers on how to do the necessary conversions to get the result as something you can boot a VM off. Depending on what's the purpose of the ISO file, if it's to reinstall a ...

I'll quote a previous answer of mine: From Virtualbox Manual : Chapter 14: 14.2. Known Issues Mac OS X guests: VirtualBox does not provide Guest Additions for Mac OS X at this time [snip] From the content of this, I wouldn't hold out for such support in VirtualBox any time soon. The situation really has not changed since ...

I just had a similar issue and resolved it by: going to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy. Click the "lock" icon to make changes. Scroll down the list on the left-hand side and select "Full Disk Access" Click the "+" icon on the right and select the Terminal app (or in my case iTerm) You'll now be prompted to close the app if it's ...

First, you need to buy Mountain Lion (if you haven't bought it already). Go to Apple's web store (not the App Store app), and search for "Mountain Lion", and pay $20 for it. Wait 3 days. Even though they're just emailing you a PDF with a license code, it's done manually (so I'm told), so it really does take 1-3 business days to get to you. In the App Store ...

I found the solution myself. All I need was to eject usb pen drive from mac's desktop. When the drive ejected, it became available in VirtualBox.

You can create an account at www.battle.net and then tie your Warcraft 3 CD to your account. Once you have done this, you are free to download the client on Windows or Mac at any time. There's no need to buy different copies :)

The dmg file (Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg) is no bootable image. To create a bootable file use the following script. You may have to modify some paths (i.e. the user name in the last line and the path to Install OS X El Capitan.app (and the inner InstallESD.dmg file) in the 6th line): #!/bin/bash # Create bootable ...

Yes, it's possible. First you need to create the virtual machine, after you completed the wizard don't start the VM but go to the menu Machine -> Show in Finder Copy the 3 files (VM Name.vbox, VM Name.vbox-prev, VM Name.vdi) to your external hard disk. After select the VM inside virtualbox and go to menu Machine -> Remove... and click the button Delete ...

There is no official way to run OS X on a virtual machine in Windows. The Apple EULA clearly states under section 2 B that you're allowed to: (iii) to install, use and run up to two (2) additional copies or instances of the Apple Software within virtual operating system environments on each Mac Computer you own or control that is already running the ...

I also followed the guide at http://web.archive.org/web/20181103074214/http://danielphil.github.io/windows/virtualbox/osx/2015/08/25/virtualbox-boot-camp.html I will add what challenges I had following that guide, but I was able to run my BOOTCAMP partition using VirtualBox, which is free, so I'm happy. First, you should have installed: Windows 10 x64 ...

You need to press "host key" which is written in right bottom corner of VirtualBox window. Looking at your screenshot its Right Ctrl. Its not default Mac Command ⌘ because you are running VirtualBox on Windows host, which you are accessing using TeamViewer. See virtualBox manual: link

Your final HighSierra.iso is missing the complete InstallESD content (AKA the real High Sierra installer). You just copy a probably defunct and thus non-bootable base macOS system to the image. I use the following shell script to create a working macOS installer iso file. Basically it's the same method as Apple's recommended way to create a bootable macOS ...

These instructions are for VirtualBox on Windows and Linux but they work well on OS X as well. Taken from here -- abridged and modified for OS X guest OS: Rip your original retail DVD of Snow Leopard in ISO format. In VirtualBox, create a new virtual machine. Name it as you want, but select "Mac OS X" as the operating system, and "Mac OS X Server" as the ...

To resolve this on El Capitan when using Virtualbox versions lower than 6.x run the following from terminal: for bin in VirtualBox VirtualBoxVM VBoxNetAdpCtl VBoxNetDHCP VBoxNetNAT VBoxHeadless; do sudo chmod u+s "/Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/${bin}" done Source: VirtualBox does not start on Mac OS X - Super User

Guest Additions are available for macOS starting with VirtualBox 6.0 Per the change log, macOS/OSX Guest Additions are at "initial support" meaning features/functionality could be limited.

If this is a hobby and you are not planning on releasing any apps to the app store, and you can tolerate the slow performance and don't care about running on real devices, then don't worry about it. However, if you are creating a business the it is essential to run on real hardware. Any low end Mac (MacBook Air 11", is my current favorite) will blow away any ...

I would guess that you have not installed the guest additions in your guest system. Quoting from the manual: In the "Devices" menu in the virtual machine's menu bar, VirtualBox has a handy menu item named "Install guest additions", which mounts the Guest Additions ISO file inside your virtual machine. A Windows guest should then automatically start ...

Press Control+Command+⌘ at the same time to release the mouse from the VirtualBox window.

I had a need to do this today and I saw your question, so here is a protocol of the steps I took.

For those still struggling with this issue: IF YOU ARE CONNECTING VIA REMOTE DESKTOP OR SCREEN SHARING or have any other mouse emulation running: It is not possible to actually click the Allow button in this mode!! So do the following: Run the installer until the location prompt open System Preferences Take a screenshot (CMD+SHIFT+3) Open the screenshot ...

So, To fix this issue you will need to be in an admin account then you will need the VirtualBox .dmg file download then you will open the dmg you should see something like this Click on the VirtualBox_uninstall.tool file. Then you will see your terminal open and give you this output Last login: Thu May 3 18:47:27 on ttys000 macname:~ user_name$ /Volumes/...

You can technically run Lion in a VM, but I really really really wouldn't recommend it. Here's why: You're basically entering the murky world of Hackintoshes Hackintoshes are inherently "hacky". The performance is rarely going to be as reliable as running OSX on mac hardware. You're violating Apple's EULA. If you really want to do it, here's a link, but I ...
