Virtualisation is enabled in Bios. I've switched down to one core, and I'll keep an eye on it. It does run a lot faster with more though...


Ok , report us if the problem is resolved or if it manifests less times

Hi all,

I am following the instructions and I get to have OSX DVD (img) to start. But I get the following panic.
I do appreciate any help or suggestions.

Hi everybody,

I have sandy bridge i7 PC and [ EASY INSTALL - LION GM/RETAIL UPDATE ] guide did not result in success.
I have changed procedure a little bit and it worked !!!

Changes:
- I did not install * fakesmc.kext
- I added
<ExtraDataItem name="VBoxInternal2/SmcDeviceKey" value="ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal©AppleComputerInc"/>
to vbox file.

My guess is that fakesmc.kext does not know about i7 processors.

No kernel panics with one core for four days. I've now switched to two...

After I switch from Hackboot to the Lion installation ISO, the bootup freezes here:

launchctl: dubious ownership of file (skipping): /System/Library/LaunchDaemons
nothing found to load

Why is this happening?

Try to repair permission on /System/Library/LaunchDeamons, before recreate iso

First, thanks for the great guide! Got everything up and running until the change from using the boot cd to efi. When I boot with EFI I get the following problem, I am running on an Sandy Bridge i5 if that is of any help.

Has anyone got a clue how to fix this, besides continuoulsy booting with the boot cd?

Hi. After updating to 10.7.2 in Virtualbox and rebooting the VM stops with a kernel panic.

Did one of you manage to update from 10.7.1 to 10.7.2 with no problems?

[Edit] Has been resolved, tnx.

This is a great post - thanks - got Lion running sweet now without hackboot.

Only issue > I can't get the display to go above 1024x768.
I've tried the .vbox edit method and VBoxManage setextradata - neither work and after a successful VM run, the line has been stripped.

Also tried adding custom Graphics Mode to Boot.plist > nadda.

Anyone else got this?
Any ideas?! :)

FYI; Vbox host is Win7 x64.

Hi,
You must edit .vbox after you have completely closed virtualbox ....
If you edit .vbox on the fly , any change will be loose ...

Ahh - I had just closed down that specific VM - not all VirtualBox/VBoxSVC processes...
After doing that - it's worked :(

Thanks - much better - I can actually see what I'm doing now...!

Nice guide, thanks. Unfortunately I can't quite get it to work. Everything works up till the last boot with EFI turned back on in Virtual box. When I boot with EFI on, the boot hangs at "Waiting for DSMOS . . ." I can see FakeSMC and nullCPUPowermanagenent both load in the lines above where it hangs "Waiting for DSMOS . . ." , and I've verified PlatformSupport.plist is deleted. Also tried repairing permissions, but nothing works. Using hackboot.iso I can boot the installed system, but I don't want to always have to do that.

Any ideas? Any help appreciated.

[ EASY INSTALL - LION GM/RETAIL UPDATE ]

I rewrite my Guide ... Now is more accurate and Easy ....

can I, using this way, upgrade snow leopard to lion?
I'm talking about virtualbox 4.1.4, snow 10.6.6, my system is in the signature.
i hoped to do that directly, but unfortunately it seems not so simple...........:(

Hi,
if it doesn't boot with EFI you can retry to install from scratch or last chance is disable EFI and install /Extra and Chameleon on VBOX HDD ...

Anybody any idea if it will succeed if we use the same MB but running Vbox on a linux host ?
Would be nice. I don't have any intentions to spend 3 weeks again to get everything up and running (although it was a VERY interesting). That's why I ask 1st :rolleyes:

Hi myhobby,
When you have created your osx lion virtualized on vb , you can use it on every version of virtualbox. ( windows, mac osx, linux host).
You can use it almost even on others pc.
The best thing to do is to backup osxlion.vdi when is full upgraded and running , so whenever it happens you can restore it back.

I was able to use it even with portable version of virtualbox so i go around with my usb pen and i run osx lion where i go.
