How to Maverick as host & as VM on the same machine?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear all,


I'm a proud owner of MBP (Mid 2012) 13'.

Running OSX 10.9 (Maverick) with the latest version of VirtualBox (3.4.6 I think...)

I've tried to setup Maverick on VB for performing tests on it but couldn't make it.


I've used the App Store Maverick installation .app to make it both bootable ISO & .dmg (with & without AppleTyMCEDriver)

Any time I'm booting the machine its freezing, screenshot attached.




If needed, my MBP info:




Any ideas whats causing this issue? or how can I solve it?


Thanks in advance!

BTW, I've just installed Trial of VMware Fusion 6, used the Maverick dmg file without the AppleTyMCEDriver module and its installing, its MUST be an issue with the latest version of VirtualBox nor its configuration.. somewhere :|

you have to make sure that both the .dmg that you're booting from and the hard drive are set to SATA AHCI... NOT IDE

Dcai777, thanks for your reply!!!
After making sure that VirtualBox will load my bootable CD as SATA AHCI I was able to boot into the setup wizard, but I don't see any HDD there - it didn't load the VM HDD.

Do you know what may cause it?
