  1. Try add "-v" boot option for verbose boot log. So you can see at which step the loading hangs up. Also you can try to hold some keys to achieve the same effect... look here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1492
  2. Mac OS X installer requires HSF+ formatted drive. You should create a virtual HDD (unpartitioned, unformatted; VDI or VMDK formats are both ok, any will do) and start installation. In the installer you can start the DiskUtil (you'll find it in the menu at the top of the screen) and format the HDD with one HFS+ (Journaled) partition, set partition table type to GPT/GUID (default?). After that the installer will show the disk & you can continue! BTW, I was able to install OS X 10.9 Mavericks in the VirtualBox without any single one modification in the OS X. It seems to be not necessary to use Hackintosh.
  3. There is a solution for Mac OS X up to 10.6.8: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosetta_(software) Maybe you'll find it useful.
  4. I'm very interested in running OS X on VirtualBox and the last attempt was almost ideal. I've run Mavericks on VirtualBox 4.3.0 without any single one modification in the OS X Two problems are that there was no audio support and very restricted video. The audio support can be achieved using VoodooHDA, but how to fix video... So, I think an extended video support is the most important feature for OSX@VBOX! P.S. Maybe there is some solution already?
  5. As I can see here, Mac OS X 10.5 supports both PowerPC- & Intel-based hardware. These (multiarch) versions have used the "fat binaries" with apps compiled for both PPC and Intel platform. I'm telling this to outline that PPC-only app can't be started on an Intel platform. But if you have an app with "fat binary" aren't you able to run it on a modern version of OS X? If you really need to run Mac OS X on a virtual PPC, VirtualBox (and VMWare too) can't help you. These virtualization solutions are able to emulate only host CPU. I know that QEMU can emulate (almost) everything (but slower), but I hope VirtualBox is actually enough for you
