    OS X Mavericks in VirtualBox

    So, after some more hair pulling I'm giving up on getting the app store working properly. But, I have successfully got Mavericks working, and, at the moment (12/Jan/2014) the problem lies with VirtualBox 4.3.6. VMWare Player works with Mavericks. And, now that I added the requisite kexts (see first post in this thread) and installed a boot loader care of Chameleon Wizard the machine boots on its own without help of the ISO. I haven't tried to figure out what's going with the oddly reversed mouse (horizontal motion is normal but vertical motion is reversed) but using the ScreenSharing (i.e. VNC) in Mac OS X Sharing allows me to control the mouse properly. TeamViewer servers reject the attempt to connect with their servers. Not sure if that's related to the serial number that was the default (somesrnum or something like that) or whether it's because of the way the VM receives its IP address. FYI The ISO disk is not visible to Mavericks when it's booted.

    OS X Mavericks in VirtualBox

    Another update: 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).

    OS X Mavericks in VirtualBox

    Error: 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? Minor update: 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). New Error: 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.
