What I've done so far is boot from Hackboot_mav.iso then replaced that with the Mavericks .iso, hit F5 and started the install. However the problem seems to be that the computer is stuck on "hfs: mounted OS X Base System on device root_device". It hasn't progressed for 25 min.

 

Host specs:

 

i5-4670K

MSI Z87-G41

8GB DDR3-1600

r9 270X

Virtualization set enabled in the BIOS

 

For the VM I gave it 2GB of RAM, 50GB storage, and disabled EFI.

I have the exact same problem after just getting a new Macbook Pro

running Maverick 10.9.2 as the host OS 

 

tried different parameters for the VMI, all defaults, 4GB/40GB, 4GB/60GB

 

Core I7

16GB RAM

Yup same here... I've made a little progress... I found changing the chipset to PIIX3 in VBOX (using version 4.3.10 i think) got me past a guru meditation error early on but later results in a panic afterwards... Also thinking PAE/NX should be disabled so the guest doesn't know the CPU data and therefore is unable to determine its not a mac CPU.  However, disabling that might mean the exact same thing.  If it wasn't a panic, I'd say this a root cause, but it's not or appears not.

I think the guys at VBox are spoiling mac os x as a guest... but I have nothing to back that claim up with aside from a warning on their forums about Apple's SLA.

Linux - AMD A10 APU, 8gb ram, Radeon HD 8670M
