    Question Problem installing OSX86 in VirtualBox

    Hello,

    Hi to everybody, this is my first post here. I'm trying to run a virtual OS X install on my PC (to try out xcode, just for general information). I have Windows 7 64 bits with 4 gigs of RAM, an M4A78T-E (Asus) motherboard and an AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU (non-overclocked). The version of VirtualBox is 4.1.6.

    I setup a mac OS X virtual machine in VB. Followed all the tutorials that I could find, but nothing works. I got the Snow_Leopard_10.6.1-10.6.2_SSE2_SSE3_Intel_AMD_by_Hazard ISO. If I start the VM with that, I always get a 'rtclock_init panic', and the OS install fails. I saw on this site that I should add my busratio to a file (com.apple.Boot.plist), but I believe that file is only accessible from the OS X system, which I can't access since I can't install it, so I don't know what to do there.

    I also tried the Empire EFI bootloader. I get the screen instructing me to mount the OS X ISO and to hit F5, but when I do, the name of the disc in the middle of the screen simply becomes fuzzy and nothing happens. I have the version 1.085 for QMD CPUs. I also tried one called EmpireEFI4AMD (the one with the cool Vader pic) and it's just the same, it doesn't work.

    I'm not sure what it is I'm doing wrong (is it my hardware that's just not compatible?), but it'd be very nice if someone could help. I'm not familiar at all with all that stuff.

    Thanks in advance...

    Wow, that figures... I've been toiling all day on this, and right after I post this, I found Windozehater thread:

    install v-box extensions
    uncheck efi
    check all virtual options
    select ich9 chipset
    at boot f8 then type "cpus=1 busratio=20"

    The part about the busratio was exactly what I needed (mine is 16). I didn't know how to enter that (**noob**). It's installing right now. How cool! Now that I see that it's working I guess I'm going to buy OS X Lion, it would work just the same, right?

    OK so I got it to install, but how do I get it to boot once it's installed?

    If I just hit restart it just restarts the install...

    What I found says that once the install is done I should unmount the ISO then reset. But that didn't work, without the ISO I get a message saying that no bootable drive was found. Should I keep the ISO mounted when I restart?

    OK, I got it to work but now it won't accept my Apple ID - although I know for a fact that it's valid. What gives? I need it to download xcode!

    Well, what happened is that I wasn't following the instructions I was given well enough. More specifically when I installed OS X I failed to follow step 10 of these instructions. So I started over and followed step 10 (I have an AMD); once the install was done I quickly unmounted the install iso and clicked restart. I let the machine do its thing (which really is to sort of crash because I don't think you can restart OS X from within VB). Then I turned off the machine, restarted it and voilą, it worked just fine.

    After that I managed to change the resolution to 1920x1080x32 and run it full screen and to update it to 10.6.8. That was tricky too. Then I hit a wall because I initially configured my vdi too small. I want to install xcode 3 which takes 10 gigs+ of space. I managed to resize the maximum size of my vdi (it's dynamic). I'll spare the issues that I encoutered getting OS X to see the new size, I had to clone the machine to get rid of the snapshots. Now OS X sees that the size of the drive has increased but I can't resize the partition from within OS X. Instead I followed other instructions and booted into a gparted iso disc. Now my problem is that (see my other thread) gparted can't resize the hfs+ partition because apparently it requires hfsprogs. Now I need help.

    Sorry for the long spiel. Feel free to ask for more help while it's still fresh in my memory! I'll do what I can to help you.
