Weird, ok try to fix caches with DPCIManager, make sure your config.plist got Devices > Audio > Inject 3 and UseIntelHDMI, make sure you have the patches in KextstoPaltch section (Audio = 3 patches, HDMI = 1 patch, 4 patches in total). Reinstall the kexts (AtivHDA and CodecCommander) and reboot 2 to 3 times and fix caches each time!

Open System Preferences > Sound > Show in the top bar and play feedback on sound change

Hi duduclx,

 

Can you get the 3g modem MU736 working again for El Capitan 10.11.3? That would be fantastic!!

Download Mobile Partner from Huawei.

Right click on mobile partner app, show package content

Go to Contents/Ressources/MobilePartner.mpkg and show package content

Go to Contents/Packages and install:

MobileConnectDriver.pkg

What version of MobileConnectDriver.pkg are you using? Your download link is not working anymore

 

actually I get this:

No newer version of mobile connect.

 

Also, mobile connect is not the issue.

 

I think you have to remove your sim/3G card, reboot, insert it, then connect to your network.

 

But your card seems to not responding so the driver crashes (exit).

 

maybe remove and add the interface, also reinstall mobile connect can do the tricks !

Nothing helps... I thought maybe the pin of the sim card is the reason (I disabled the pin), but no luck. I have no ideas anymore. On windows the 3g modem works fine

scrolling,microphone and webcams working?

AFAIK, Webcams are working, the only problem is scrolling which needs a fully rewritten for the trackpad, and it may even fix the blinking led on docking. Too bad there isn't anyone with sufficient time and experience or even the device to make this work. :(

For the 3G driver : http://download-c.huawei.com/download/downloadCenter?downloadId=54976&version=174669&siteCode=worldwide

try it and give feedback, I tried an earlier version and did nothing, and ATM I don't have much space to spare on OS X on my tablet :/ Please do us a favor and try it out, any problems, reboot into recoveryhd OR safe mode, remove the kext, fix caches and reboot normal.

Try this:

Remove your sim card

Uninstall mobile connect

Reboot

Install mobile connect

Reboot

Insert sim card

 

Please, post your network config used on Windows and Mac.

Did you get it worked under Mac ?

Hi,

I get this error when I try to dump the DSDT:

ACPI Error: [APSN] Namespace lookup failure, AE_ALREADY_EXISTS (20141107/dswload-451)
ACPI Exception: AE_ALREADY_EXISTS, During name lookup/catalog (20141107/psobject-305)

I searched for duplicates but the .aml file sizes are all different.

 

This is the whole output I get in terminal:

I wanted to try dumping in Linux but i have trouble booting Linux from the USB3 port and I don't have the Keyboard dock which is USB2 I think.

 

Thanks for your help

 

EDIT: I've managed to boot Linux and dump the DSDT but i got a lot of errors when i compile the DSDT after patching in MaciASL. I think I have to update the BIOS first.

You can dump from clover. Choose your hard disk to boot, then press F4. Wait and boot.

You Will find dsdt.aml and ssdt in efi/acpi/original

 

Compiling dsdt don't Matter of your bis version !

 

The issue is about, maybe, the version tool for compilation in maciasl (4 or 5).

Use 4.

 

Cheers !

Hi!

 
I have a Samsung XE700T1C-A02DE. I followed the guide, prepared the thumb drive and it boots up.
The only problem I am facing: Beachball of Death!
 
Contents of my thumb drive:
  • Mac OS X El Capitan Installer
  • Clover v2.3k  r3354
  • FakeSMC.kext, HFSPlus.efi and OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi
 
If I boot with -v argument, I see following lines
FakeSMC v6.9.1315 CopyRight 2014 netkas, slice, usr-sse2, kozlek, navi, THe KiNG, RehabMan. All rights reserved.
FakeSMC: 13 preconfigured keys added
FakeSMC: 5 keys exported by CloverEFI
SMC: successfully initialized
...
(about 3 minutes later)
...
AppleLMUController::checkSMCMode Error: SMC is in 'ÿ' mode, not 'A' mode
AppleLMUController::start Error: SMC mode check failed

Then the beachball of death happens.

 

I tried FakeSMC 6.18.1394 (found somewhere on the web), 6.16.1372 (latest official) and 6.9.1315.

I also tried CsrActiveConfig values (0x00 and 0x03), rootless=0 and other options.

 

I attached my EFI System Partition.

 
Best Regards,
Mr nUUb

normally, to just need this boot arg:

kext-dev-mode-1

 

try to copy fakesmc.kext in this 3 folder (EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS):

EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.10/fakesmc.kext

EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS10.11/fakesmc.kext (ever done)

EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/Others/fakesmc.kext

 

Cheers !

I should have mentioned, that I already tried inserting the kext in every numbered folder + other AND

deleteting every numbered folder + using only other folder. It made no difference.

 

Using only the kext-dev-mode=1 argument (and disablig -xcpm and -gux_defe_usb2) does not change anyting, too.

 

EDIT: So I finally managed to get El Capitan installed. I made a backup of my clover folder. The I used "Clover OX X El Capitan v7" and prepared my thumb drive with it. I mounted the EFI partition and applied my backup. Now everything is working, FakeSMC.kext and Clover config were OK, but somehow the installer was messed up.

Why didn't you follow post #20? I always follow it if I want to reinstall and it works!

Thanks dude! I must have overlooked it!

 

So I got everything up and running!

Except the App Store... my computer could not be verified.

 

EDIT: Got it working! I removed all network connections in system configuration, deleted the NetworkInterfaces.plist file and rebooted.

Then I added the WiFi device first and logged in!

 - Update to my previous post here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/307911-guide-samsung-ativ-smart-pro-xe700t1c-1010x-and-10110-100/?p=2205237

 

I updated the Gesture Settings file Gesture_settings.zip and Made these changes:

  • Press & Tap: You will have to touch the screen with a finger then another (like two fingers tap, but one finger at a time), this will Toggle Keyboard Viewer (KeyUp if available and selected in Other Settings, it should be, but cannot guarentee it, else, it will open the OS X keyboard viewer, eww)
  • 5 Finger pinch: Toggle window Zoom (fullscreen)
  • 2 finger edge gesture:
    • from left: Mission Control
    • from right: Launchpad
  • 1 finger edge gesture (just like in Windows 10!!)
    • from left: Mission Control
    • from right: Notifications

And to fix UPDD/KeyUp battery "slurping" (exactly as it sounds, not really a fix, but a workaround, may not have a big impact, but I tried):

  1. Open Terminal (or iTerm)
  2. Make sure you have "brew" ( http://brew.sh )
  3. Type: 
    brew install cputhrottle libfaketime
  4. Download this file updd-ku.zip
  5. Add it to Login Items (Preferences > Users and groups > Your User Name > Login Items > Unlock the padlock drag updd-ku.app > remove UPDD Gestures > Close
  6. Open updd-ku.app

For people who don't want to type in their password every time:

  1. Open Automator
  2. Select Open an Existing Document or File > Open ...
  3. Select updd-ku.app
  4. You should find two Steps with "run AppleScript" as title (remember, two!!)
  5. Add after 
    ... with administrator privileges
     this 
    password "<your password here>"
     so that you get
     ... with administrator privileges password "<your password here>"

    eg.: my password is midi I should get 

    ... with administrator privileges password "midi"
  6. Save and execute.

Warning: This may (and certainly will) expose your password to anyone, if someone knows about Automator and such, he/she can easily open the file and read your password.

 

For config.plist: 

I used the config.plist https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Clover-Laptop-Config/blob/master/config_HD4000_1600x900.plist 

Then I opened it with Clover Configurator, went to ACPI, disabled the USB patches on top, went to Devices and put Inject 3, UseIntelHDMI, then to KextstoPatch and enabled (they were disabled) all the HDMI-audio patches and the the 10.11 glitch fix, added Audio patches, and disabled everything else, then changed MacbookPro9,2 to MacbookAir5,2 and saved it to my EFI partition.

 

Hope it helps.

      Clover r4799 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4799 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4799-X64 by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VMware Workstation on a Windows Host
       
      I wanted to make a simple guide on how to create a vanilla OS X El Capitan virtual machine running on a Windows host.  The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are many guides and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMWare disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from various threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum eg
       
      Workstation 11/12, Player 7/12, Fusion 7/8 and ESXi 6 Mac OS X Unlocker 2 by @Donk How to Install OS X 10.x from Snow Leopard to El Capitan in VMware Workstation 10/12, Player 6/8 or ESXi 5/6 by @MSOK HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware Credit and thanks to @Donk, @Albert Nietsnie and @MSOK for all their hard work in creating and testing the VMware Unlocker program.
       
      Requirements
      Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X) 4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X) Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine VMware Workstation 12 or later VMware Unlocker 2.0.7 or later Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#41 16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Unmount any attached install image/InstallESD.dmg (if currently mounted) by rebooting the system or running the hdiutil unmount command in terminal eg
       
      3.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes….
       
       
       
      4.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 5.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
      Updates:
      @shela has created an ISO generating script compatible with OS X 10.6-10.12: create_osx_iso post #362.
      See post#30 for macOS_iso_cim.tool script to create ISO for macOS 10.13+ using Apple's createinstallmedia utility.
       
      Install and Patch VMware Workstation 12 on your PC
      1.  Download and install VMWare Workstation Player 12 or later
      2.  Download and extract Unlocker 2.0.7 or later to your USB stick…
      3.  Run the win-install.cmd as administrator by right clicking the file in Windows explorer or run it from an Administrative Command Prompt.
       



       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine
      1.  Double click on the VMware Workstation 12 Player icon on your desktop and click “Create a New Virtual Machine”.  Choose “I will install the operating system later” at the How will you install screen….
       

      2.  Select Apple Mac OS X as the Guest operating system and OS X 10.11 as the version.  By default, an OS X 10.11 folder will be created in your Documents\Virtual Machines folder.
       


      3.  Under Specify Disk Capacity, you can leave the default 40GB or set a larger value.  I personally store the virtual disk as a single file.  Click Finish and you will see OS X 10.11 on the Main Screen of Workstation 12.
       


      4.  Next, we need to edit the virtual machine settings to map the virtual SATA CD/DVD drive to the El Capitan installation iso we created earlier.
       


       
      5.  To prevent the virtual machine from crashing in Windows, the virtualHW.version set in the vmx configuration file needs to be changed from 12 to 10 (alternatively, the line smc.version = "0" can be added to the file).  The OS X 10.11.vmx file can be edited with the WordPad program (navigate to the OS X 10.11 virtual machine folder with Windows Explorer and right click on the file to open in WordPad).
       


       
      6.  For HW10, set USB compatibility to USB 2.0, otherwise your mouse and keyboard might not work in the virtual machine.
       

      7.  Finally click “Play virtual machine”
       

      Installation of El Capitan
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I’ve named the drive Macintosh HD but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       



      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
       

      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete and the VM will automatically reboot…
       

      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
       


      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
       


      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.  You should eject the Installation iso now by right clicking and selecting “Eject OS X Base System”.  This will allow you to install VMware Tools….
       



      8.  After rebooting, the VM can now be resized or run at full screen resolution.  Audio and network/internet should also work OOB.
       

       
      SMBIOS Customization and iMessage Vars
      To make the Virtual Machine more "Mac like", you can edit the vmx file to add unique identifiers from a real Mac's SMBIOS -
      eg for an iMac 11,3 SMBIOS, you can enter the following lines....
      smbios.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id.reflectHost = "FALSE" board-id = "Mac-F2238BAE" hw.model.reflectHost = "FALSE" hw.model = "iMac11,3" serialNumber.reflectHost = "FALSE" serialNumber = "W80#######6" Refer How to spoof real Mac in VMware - Multi-booting and Virtualisation.
       
      The critical variables for iMessage/Facetime activation are MLB & ROM.  By default, VMware "reflects" the host's MLB and ROM since it assumes you are running the OSX guest on a real Mac host - see post#42 by @Donk.
       
      If the host is a Windows PC, the following lines need to be added to the vmx file (requires virtualHW.version 12 and smc.version = "0")....
      efi.nvram.var.ROM.reflectHost = "FALSE" efi.nvram.var.MLB.reflectHost = "FALSE" system-id.enable = "TRUE" and the MLB, ROM and optionally system-id entered manually eg
      efi.nvram.var.MLB = "W80######BA1A" (MLB can be 13 or 17 characters long, alphanumeric string) efi.nvram.var.ROM = "<=>?@A" (ROM is entered here as a 6 character ASCII string) uuid.bios = "## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##-## ## ## ## ## ## ## ##" <---Optional (if you want to inject a given system-id hexadecimal value) Note the output for ROM from imessage_debug is a 12 character hexadecimal that needs to be entered here as a 6 character ASCII string eg using an Hex to ASCII converter we find that "3c3d3e3f4041" hex is equivalent to   "<=>?@A".
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Enjoy
       
      Update for macOS 10.12 Sierra
      The above settings still work for macOS Sierra after upgrading to VMware Workstation 12.5 and unlocker 2.0.8 - see post #13.
       
      Update for macOS 10.13 High Sierra and 10.14 Mojave
      See post#30 for macOS_iso_cim.tool script to create ISO for macOS using Apple's createinstallmedia utility.
      Post#41 describes how to build "Install macOS ******.app" on the fly from installer files downloaded beforehand in /SharedSupport folder.

      Run Vanilla OS X El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra or Mojave in VirtualBox 5.x.x on a Windows Host
      Following on from my previous guide on how to create a VMware virtual machine running Vanilla OS X El Capitan in Windows, I’ve decided to write a similar guide for creating a VirtualBox El Capitan VM. 
       
      The virtual machine should be useful for testing El Capitan and also for creating installers for use on a real machine/hackintosh.
       
      There are other tutorials and videos on the net about running OS X on Windows machines using pre-made VMDK disk images but you can never guarantee what else is in there….
       
      I’ve gathered info for this guide from several threads in the Multibooting and Virtualisation section of this forum and also the wider internet eg
       
      @colt2 HOW TO: Create a bootable El Capitan ISO for VMware

      VirtualBox Forum: Status of OSX on OSX
       
      Requirements
         Intel PC with four or more CPU cores running Windows 7 X64 or later OS (2 or more cores needed for OS X)    4GB or more RAM (2GB or more will be needed for OS X)    Hard Disk with at least 40GB free for Virtual Machine    Oracle VM VirtualBox v 5.0.34    Install OS X El Capitan app and Mac or Hack to prepare installation iso <-- Now, no longer necessary to have previous access to a Mac or Hack by building the Installer.app from scratch - see post#75    16GB or larger exFAT formatted USB stick to transfer El Capitan iso from Mac/Hack to Host PC  
      Prepare Installation ISO on your Mac or Hack
      1.  On your Mac or Hack, download "Install OS X El Capitan.app" from the App Store into your Applications folder.
      2.  Download and unzip the CECI.tool (attached to this post) into your ~/Downloads folder. The commands in this executable script are shown below for informational purposes.  Note: you will need approx 16GB of free space on your hard disk for the script to complete.
       
       
       
      3.  Open OS X terminal, then run the following commands to execute the script:
      cd downloads chmod +x CECI.tool ./CECI.tool 4.  At the end of the process, you will have an El Capitan iso on your desktop - copy this onto an exFAT formatted USB for use on the PC Host later.
       
       
      Create an El Capitan Virtual Machine in VirtualBox
      1.  Open the VirtualBox program and click the "New" button to create a new VM.
       

       
      2.  Select Mac OS X and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (64 -bit) for Operating System type and version.  I named my Virtual Machine "El_Capitan", then clicked next...
       

       
      3.  Leave the Memory size at the recommended 2048 MB, then click next.
       

       
      4.  Choose to "Create a virtual hard disk now", then click the create button.
       

       
      5.  For the hard disk file type, the default is VDI (VirtualBox Disk Image) but I have selected VMDK for inter-operability with VMWare.  Click next...
       

       
      6.  For Storage on physical hard disk, I have chosen the default Dynamically allocated (grows larger to a set limit as you need more disk space).
       

       
      7.  On the File location and size screen, you can set the location of the new virtual hard disk and its size - I recommend changing disk size to 40GB or larger.  When you click the create button, you will now see your new VM in the VirtualBox main GUI.
       

       
      8.  Click the settings button on the Main Menu to tweak a few settings....
         a.  On the System/Motherboard tab in Boot Order, you can uncheck the Floppy Drive (who has these now?)
       

       
         b.  On the System/Processor tab, you can increase the allocated CPU cores to 2
       

       
         c.  On the Display tab, you can increase the allocated Video Memory to 128MB
       

       
         d.  On the Storage tab, click on the icon of the Optical Drive and select "Choose Virtual Optical Disk File". 
       

       
      Navigate and select the El Capitan ISO we created earlier...
       

       
         e.  Click the OK button to finalise the VM settings.
       
       
      Patch El Capitan vbox configuration file with DMI Settings from a Mac
      1.  From the start menu, type cmd and click run as administrator to open an administrative command prompt. 
       

       
      2.  Choose a Mac Model similar to your host system, then type the following lines, followed by <enter>  after each line.  Make sure you first close all VirtualBox Windows and the VirtualBox program, otherwise any changes you make won't stick...
       
      Eg iMac11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F2238BAE" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 MacBookPro11,3
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "MacBookPro11,3" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 Macmini6,2
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "Macmini6,2" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Mac-F65AE981FFA204ED" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1 3.  Optional- For some host systems eg those with Haswell and newer CPUs, you might have to spoof an older CPU to avoid VirtualBox errors.  You can try from one of the following if this happens:

      To spoof Lynnfield i5 750 CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 06100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff To spoof IvyBridge CPU
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff or
      VBoxManage.exe modifyvm "El_Capitan" --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 00020800 80000201 178bfbff 4.  Close the command prompt window.
       
       
      Installation of El Capitan
      We are now ready to start the El_Capitan Virtual Machine....
       



       
      Installation should be relatively straight forward, just following the prompts of the OS X installer:
      1.  Select language, agree to legal terms
       

       
      2.  Use Disk Utility from the Utilities Menu to erase and format the virtual hard drive as a single partition GUID Mac OS X Extended.  I named my drive "Macintosh HD" but you can enter whatever you like eg El_Capitan.
       

       
      3.  Quit DU and choose Macintosh HD to install El Capitan on.
      4.  After 20-30 min (depending on how fast your system is), the installation will complete.  At this point, unmount the El Capitan ISO by clicking the Devices menu from the VM window, click Optical Drives, then choose Remove disk from virtual drive.  The VM is now ready to reboot into OS X from the virtual hard drive.
      5.  At the welcome screen, choose your country and keyboard layout.  You can skip transfer information, location services and logging in with your Apple ID if you wish…
      6.  Create a User Account and select your Time Zone.  You can skip sending diagnostics and usage data to Apple….
      7.  Finally, you will arrive at the El Capitan Desktop.
       

       
      8.  Network/internet and audio should work OOB but on my system, the sounds were distorted.  Unfortunately, there is no QE/CI and the VM resolution will be fixed without the ability to dynamically resize the VM window (no VirtualBox additions for OS X guests atm). 
       
       
      Customization with VBoxManage
      1.  You can change the default resolution of 1024*768 (after shutting down the VM) with the VBoxManage command from the Windows Administrative Command Prompt:
      cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N (Where N can be one of 0,1,2,3,4,5) referring to the 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1920x1200 screen resolution respectively.
       
      Update:  For VirtualBox 5.2.x, the command for changing screen resolution has changed...
       
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution XxY (where X=Horizontal screen resolution, Y=Vertical screen resolution)
      eg
      VBoxManage setextradata "<MyVM>" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1280x1024 2.  Adding serials and other SMBIOS details for the System Information Screen
      VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemSerial" "W8#######B6" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardSerial" "W8#########1A" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVendor" "Apple Inc." VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemFamily" "iMac" VBoxManage setextradata "El_Capitan" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBIOSVersion" "IM112.0057.03B" A listing of known issues with Mac OS X guests can be found in the VirtualBox Manual - link https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch14.html.
       
      Vanilla Mavericks and Yosemite, Snow Leopard from Retail DVD
      The same VM settings for El Capitan will also boot and run vanilla installations of OS X Mavericks and Yosemite .  Attached to this post are installer scripts to create bootable Mavericks (CMI.tool) and Yosemite (CYI.tool) ISOs for VirtualBox and VMware.
       
      With the respective OS X installer apps in the Applications folder, download and run the installer tools using terminal ie
       
      To create a Mavericks ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CMI.tool ./CMI.tool To create a Yosemite ISO on your desktop
      cd downloads chmod +x CYI.tool ./CYI.tool Here is a screenshot of the VM running Mavericks 10.9.5...
       

       
      Finally, those without a Mac/Hack to prepare the install media can purchase a retail Snow Leopard DVD directly from Apple and install OSX 10.6.3 on their virtual machines (Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion run quite happily in VirtualBox with 1 CPU, 1-2 GB of RAM and the rest of the settings unchanged from above).  Once you update by combo update to SL 10.6.8, you can directly download El Capitan from the App Store for free .
       

       
      UPDATE macOS Sierra 10.12 to 10.12.6: For macOS Sierra, use CSI.tool in post#51.
      UPDATE macOS High Sierra 17A365:  For macOS High Sierra, use CHSI.tool in post#73.
      UPDATE macOS Mojave 18A391:  For macOS Mojave or High Sierra, use macOS_iso_creator.tool on page 4 of thread.
       
      Good luck and enjoy
