Snow Leopard on Virtualbox

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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,

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?
