Well I doubt they will "fix" iMessage -- more likely the fix will have to come from the VM-side no?
Does iMessage work in VMware Fusion or Parallels on Mac hardware?

I'm looking for a workaround for Virtualbox...

On the net i read that on VMWare iMessage can run applying a fix to VM...
I'm looking for a workaround for Virtualbox...
iMessage works my "VirtualBox OSX" using FileNVRAM.dylib patch.
Maybe you should activate AppleID on a real iDevice

I'm getting stuck after booting from the "hackboot_mav.iso" image; I can switch to the OS X .iso I've created ok, press <f5>, and the kernel boots ok; but seems to get stuck at about the stage it tries to mount the root disk.
See screenshot (output when using "-x" kernel flag):
Yes, I've noticed the error around "FakeSMC" about half-way down the screen shot, I know I've put fakesmc.kext into /System/Library/Extensions; not sure why that message appears (I've also copied the whole Install109 extracted .zip file into the root of the image, so "/Install109/Kexts/FakeSMC.kext" exists; but not sure if that is confusing the issue or not!)
VirtualBox v4.3.4; real computer is a Dell Latitude E6540 (i7 core) running Windows 7 x64. Any suggestions?
(Note, as I also have a macbook, I've tried booting the same images in Parallels, and it does progress to the installer, so I'm hopeful I haven't done anything too stupid with my image creation, and that I just need some kernel command-line magic...)
Any suggestions welcome!
your VirtualBox HardDisk Image(Mavericks.vid) should be empty(no partiion, no file system)
boot option '-v -x' or '-v -x -F' or '-v -x -f'
Hello, i've certainly a stupid question, because i try to do this tutorial
but i'm blocking at the step
Using Disk utility restore Basesystem.dmg to OSXMavericks.dmg

Basesystem.dmg is Hiddend file
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles Yes && killall Finder

- no network : i've use same parameters than my Snow Leopard and my Mountain Lion VM, NAT, but no material is detected Under Maverick : how could fix it please ?
- no sound, even i ve use your AppleHDA.kext
Posted 19 December 2013 - 04:50 AM
For Network select in Vm option :
Type: Intel PRO/1000 MT Server (82545EM)
It's works Oob
For audio put AppleHDA.kext. In S/L/E.

Hi pippox0, network work fine now, but about the AppleHDA.kext, i've had a lot of message after the copy about this kext (not usable). i ll try to reboot, hopping to solve the problem
i ll do a snapshot too, becauase app store propose me the update 10.9.1
Posted 19 December 2013 - 10:11 AM
about this " SMBios.plist ", which one should I choose ?
MB - Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R
CPU - QuadCore Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400
Video - ASUS HD7770
Memory - 4Gb
OS - XP Pro x64
Posted 19 December 2013 - 05:21 PM
hi, about this " SMBios.plist ", which one should I choose ? my system: MB - Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R -CPU - QuadCore Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 - Video - ASUS HD7770 - Memory - 4Gb - OS - XP Pro x64. thanks
Your question doesn't make much sense!
We are talking about virtualized Hardware, so you can use iMac or MacPro. smbios.plist
Host computer Hardware is hidden to VM.
Posted 21 December 2013 - 10:42 AM
hi, so no everything work fine, except sound (the AppleHDA.kext coming from pippox0 didn't work) and of course the video card
i've clone my vdi into vmdk to use it in VMware Workstation 10. i've boot normally but i've a big problem:the mouse and the keybord didn't work !!! how could fix it please ? i ll try after to install VMware Tools to test if video is more accelerated Under VmWare
thanks a lot

Need help or suggestions here.
I followed steps to install the Mavericks successfully in the VBox 3.4.3. Great guide!
Today, I changed to a new PC (much more powerful than my old one), after installed the latest version of VBox 3.4.6, copied the vdi I created to the new computer, strange thing happened, the system cannot boot. The VM simply hanging after message "hfs: mount xxxxx on device root-device" ! In my old computer, after this message, system should boot to the GUI quickly.
I have tried every settings I know, but still no luck.
Does any one know where is wrong? Thanks in advance.
Btw, the new computer is running Win8.1, but I don't think this will affect the virtual guest OS or am I wrong?
Posted 26 December 2013 - 03:22 AM
now, I am sure it is the problem of Win8.1 and Virtualbox.
I tried to boot the same vdi in another Win7 machine, and it works very well.

check your new pc bios "VT-x" setting. try export vdi from old pc then import it to new pc.
Thanks, already checked. The Vt-X is on.
I also tried to install the older version as I used in my old PC, and copy all the confirguration to the new PC, the VB added the VM successfully but always stop working like I mentioned before.
On the other hand, use Win7 without problem.
Although it is hard to belive, but I now think it is a problem only happened under Win8.1. I don't know why, may be the VB doesn't support Win8.1 as well as it claimed.
Anyway, I will try VM Player next. To see if it works or not.

"Using Disk utility create a Disc Image OSXMavericks.dmg of 6Gb.
Using Disk utility restore Basesystem.dmg to OSXMavericks.dmg"
Can you put this in a way so that someone who has barely used MAC OS X can understand it? Thanks in advance!
EDIT: Never mind, googled it.

hfs: mounted OS X Base System on device root_device
hfs: summary table not allowed on FS with block size of 2048
hfs: could not initialize summary table for OS X Base System
I've installed Linux onto ancient hardware. I've gotten versions of Mac OS X running on MACS that weren't supposed to be able to take the version. Mavericks OS X 10.9.1 is running flawlessly on my Hackintosh. But, VirtualBox 4.3.6 has me stumped under both Mac OS X 10.9.1 and Windows 8.1.
I've downloaded the HackBoot ISO (mavericks version) available in this thread. I have two different Mavericks install DVDs that I've created in two different ways. I've even downloaded a Mavericks image from Baidu that supposedly worked with HackBoot and VirtualBox (see earlier post). Earlier I got 10.8 running successfully under VirtualBox 4.3.6 using a different HackBoot ISO.
I run into the above error on both the Mac and the Windows side and with my own Mavericks install image and one d/l from Baidu which leads me to conclude it's a problem with my configuration of VirtualBox and/or my BIOS (it happens in both HackOS X 10.9.1 and Windows 8.1) and/or VirtualBox.
Re-reading the thread a few messages ago, I wonder if it has something to do with the newest version of VirtualBox? (I doubt it's Windows since my problem occurs on both Windows 8.1 and Hack OS X 10.9.1).
-v and -x do nothing and both hang at the same place. I've tried VT-x enabled and disabled in the Gigabyte's BIOS (enabled seems to prevent my Hackintosh from booting since two VirtualBox softwares show up as halting the boot process... haven't tried booting into the Hackintosh since).
Hardware: Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H mobo (1150 socket), i5 4570S Haswell CPU, 8 GB RAM
OS: Hacktinosh 10.9.1 or Windows 8.1.
VirtualBox: 4.3.6 with the extension pack installed.
What to do?
I'm experimenting with settings. Changing the motherboard chipset to PIIX3 from ICH9 seems to have added two additional lines after the error reported in the previous post before it hangs. Plus, when you hover over the PIIX3/ICH9 selector you see a warning that the ICH9 implementation is experimental and only recommended for OSes that require it (like OS X). I'm starting to wonder if VirtualBox 4.3.6 is the cause of the problem (unfortunately I don't see version 4.3.3 in the archives as a previous poster mentioned).
USBF: 5.502 AppleUSBOHCI::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep
USBF: 5.507 AppleUSBOHCI::CheckSleepCapability - controller will be unloaded across sleep
Minor Update 2:
Version 4.3.2 gave the same error under Windows.
Posted 11 January 2014 - 02:33 AM
The hfs: error is a red herring. I'm now staring at the installer screen under VMWare Player 6 and I still saw the error reported during boot! Obviously something else is causing the installer and VirtualBox to disagree.
Installed VMware Player 6. It's booting the installer after I changed the CD/DVD to SATA and booted with -v -x. Now I am looking at the installer screen .
FYI Used the Mavericks ISO Boot attached to this thread and the Mavericks ISO downloaded from a link listed earlier in this thread.
Update to the update:
Had to remove and recreate the HDD. The default is IDE and Disk Utility can't see it. SATA works. Also, the mouse direction controls are reversed (weird--really weird and annoying).
