  1. 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
  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

    sound on mac vm clover

    hi, I have a mojave vm that i made with this tutorial: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309654-run-vanilla-os-x-el-capitan-sierra-high-sierra-or-mojave-in-virtualbox-5xx-on-a-windows-host/. I want to use applealc to enable sound. I have an Intel HD Audio/Realtek HD Audio sound card using the Intel HD Audio preset on the virtualbox sound settings. I have installed lilu and applealc but do not know what audio id to use to enable audio. Please help me figure out what alc I have. yoyojoe
  4. Hi, I have an El Capitan vm in Virtualbox. I want to upgrade to Mojave, but the installer never works on a vm, so I use virtual boot disks I make with Diskmaker X. What has worked for me before, making a boot disk out of the installer, creating a new vm, and modifying the virtualbox efi bios in the cmd so that it will boot, then booting from the install disk, is not working for Mojave. The installer boots fine, but after I select the disk and install, at about 75%, the vm reboots, and the new vdi does not have Mojave installed. How do I fix this? I am using these commands to modify the vm so it boots: VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "Mojave" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff VBoxManage setextradata "Mojave" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "MacBookPro15,1" VBoxManage setextradata "Mojave" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "Mojave" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663" VBoxManage setextradata "Mojave" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "Mojave" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 Thanks in advance, yoyojoe

    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
  6. I got the disk and it did not work because macos server is not on the vbox list. How do I fix this?
