  1. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    If that didn't work, then I guess it's not a problem with ownership/permissons. I'm out of ideas.
  2. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    -R means recursive, meaning it'll copy subfolders and not just the files in the folder you specified. -p means preserve permissions, meaning it'll keep the permissions equal to the original file, and -v simply means verbose, it prints exactly what it's doing. Without the -v option the cp command wouldn't print any output, so it's a good way to see what exactly what it's doing, or whether it's doing anything at all. EDIT: -p actually preserves most (or all?) of the original file's attributes, not just permissions.
  3. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    It should work, what's the error exactly? Are you making sure to enclose the names of the folders in quotation marks if they have spaces? I'm pretty sure the installation DVD has spaces, so you should type it out like this: cp -Rpv /Volumes/"Mac OS X Install DVD"/* /Volumes/Temporary Note the quotes around the source folder, make sure you do the same with the destination folder if you named it using spaces. Also, keep in mind that the "-Rpv" options are case sensitive, so make sure you're typing it as written and not as "-rpv"
  4. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    I see that it says something about dubious ownership. I'm guessing you might not have preserved permissions and ownership. If I remember correctly, I used this command: cp -Rpv /Volumes/(name of DVD)/* /Volumes/(name temporary hard drive) in the terminal to copy over the files. Obviously, you have to change the parts in parenthesis to the names of the mounted install DVD and the disk you intend to copy them to.
  5. Windows + VirtualBox = MAC OS

    I had the same exact problem, but after taking a look at this page, I decided to try making a temporary virtual disk for the installation files. I created a new, temporary virtual hard disk, mounted it on the Leopard VM I already had set up, formatted it using the disk utility, copied the contents of the install dvd to this new disk (making sure to include all hidden files), and installed chameleon on that disk. After all that was done, I simply mounted that disk as the primary slave drive for the Snow Leopard VM. Empire EFI was able to detect the disk and start the installation process. Other than that, I followed takwing's instructions (thanks for the guide, btw) and everything installed just fine. While it works fine for the most part, I'm having trouble getting Virtualbox's own EFI working with it. The only way I can get it to boot is by using the Empire EFI boot disk. Installing Chameleon on it doesn't work, and if I enable EFI in the virtual machine settings, the boot process freezes not long after the line "Loading System\Library\Caches\com.apple.kext.caches\Startup\Extensions.mkext" shows up on the screen. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I wouldn't be surprised if it's something stupid that I missed during installation, but I can't figure out what.
