    Default Problems attempting to install in VirtualBox on Dell XPS 420

    Hi there everyone,

    I tried to follow this tutorial to install OSX in VirtualBox on my computer and am pretty sure I followed it to a T. Upon starting the machine however, I sure didn't get far.

    On startup, I get the following popup:

    VT-x/AMD-V hardware acceleration has been enabled, but is not operational. Certain guests (e.g. OS/2 and QNX) require this feature.

    Please ensure that you have enabled VT-x/AMD-V properly in the BIOS of your host computer.
    I choose to continue.

    The window turns grey, an apple pops up in the center and VirtualBox tells me that a critical error has occured while running the machine and that the execution has been stopped.

    That's not very far .

    Like I said, I followed it as closely as I could, so is there a chance I have neglected to select something necessary for the process to run successfully? Unfortunately, it doesn't even run long enough for me to get an error message of any sort, so I don't have anything useful to provide on that front.

    Any thoughts or help you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for your time,

    Hi there everyone,

    In the absence of any insight, I've kept fooling around in the hopes of fumbling into a successful install. I don't yet have a successful install, but I'm getting closer.

    Enabling VT in the BIOS resolved the crashing issue. After that, I was able to run the installer, choose the disk and finish the installation procedure. I shut down the machine and removed the install ISO from the IDE resources.

    On restart, I get a terminal, which shows a bunch of text concerning IDE and SATA connections then it states:

    Press ESC in 15 seconds to skip startup.nsh, any other key to continue.
    then when I press enter:

    Shell>
    As a fluke, I entered "startup.nsh" into the terminal and got:

    'startup.nsh' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file

    Shell>_
    Does anyone have any ideas on what I might be able to do to get into the desktop environment?

    Thanks for your time!
