    Snow Leopard on Virtualbox

    I got it to boot using the Snow Leopard setting and efi boot, but it boots to the "beach ball of death". I have tried many cpu profiles, listed: VBoxManage modifyvm "<VM name>" --cpu-profile "Intel Xeon X5482 3.20GHz", VBoxManage modifyvm "<VM name>" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i7-2635QM", VBoxManage modifyvm "<VM name>" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i7-3960X", VBoxManage modifyvm "<VM name>" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i5-3570", VBoxManage modifyvm "<VM name>" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i7-5600U", VBoxManage modifyvm "<VM name>" --cpu-profile "Intel Core i7-6700K". None make the beach ball go away. Is there something I am missing to make it get past the beach ball? Or should I just leave my pc on and see if the beach ball goes away? yoyojoe
  2. Hi. I have posted this same question, but the thread is dead so please don't close this. I recently purchased a genuine apple Snow Leopard install disk and want to run it on virtualbox. They got rid of the Snow Leopard server option, so how do I do this? I was looking at this guide. Is there a version of the commands mentioned in the article that can make Snow Leopard run? thanks in advance, yoyojoe
  3. I got the disk and it did not work because macos server is not on the vbox list. How do I fix this?
  4. Hi, I want to get macOS so I can use Xcode, but I don't want to buy a mac and I don't have a friend with a mac. I was looking at this guide. There are genuine Apple Snow Leopard install disks available, so if I used one of those disks instead of the image file mentioned in the article and did everything else like the article said, would Snow Leopard run? I would then upgrade it to El Capitan and then to Mojave after that of course. If this is a stupid question, I am sorry. I am a noob and a windows/linux person. Thanks in advance, yoyojoe
