Mac on Lenovo G505s laptop
2 2

Question

Greetings all!
I 've been trying to install Mac (through virtual box) on my laptop last 3 days spending about 4-5 hours per day :/

Well my goal is to run Xcode and learn programming with Swift to create iOS apps!

I was able to instal Mac Snow Leopard in virtualbox(using -x -v cpus=1 busratio=20 colors=32) and boot with flag: amd -x
After entering in Mac OS I had no App Store... I downloaded the last Xcode from apples website and I got an error telling my it isn't supported by my Mac version! I tried to update my Mac software and I did but after restarting and trying to boot again it wouldn't boot. I tried using any boot flag but it would give me a kernel error...

I need to install the last version Yosemite 10.10.1 which I downloaded but can't install!
I am totally noob in virtualbox stuff, in Linux too...
Can anyone help me step by step?
What flags should I use before the install, what drivers should I check in the costumize section while installing?
Do I need Multibeast? Is there a version for Ubuntu? How do I install it?

I have a Lenovo laptop!
Model: G505s
AMD A8 5550m APU 2.1GHz (quad core)
Ram: 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM 1600MHz
AMD Radeon HD 8750m 2GB DDR3 VRAM
1TB SATA 5400 rpm

Thanks in advance!

@ after all, i managed to install hackintosh yosemite on my laptop!

 

Let me help AMD users.

In vmware, while creating the virtual machine, you should choose as you host os: "windows" and NOT mac!!!
I have no idea why, however the mac os option works well with intel but won't work with most AMD processors!

My only problem now, is my graphics! My laptop uses: AMD Radeon HD 8550G + 8500M!
Is there any solution?

Thanks in advance.

VMware Player unrecoverable error: (vcpu-0)

 

vcpu-0:VERIFY

vmcore/vmm/main/physMem_monitor.c:1123

 

A log file is available in ...

Any idea what to do?
I get the Bluetooth problem in Virtualbox and the above one in VMware

Just googled my VMware problem and found a solution!

In order to resolve 'vmcore/vmm/main/physMem_monitor.c:1123' error you do this:

 

Go to: C:UsersYOU_USER_NAMEDocumentsVirtual MachinesYOU_VIRTUAL_MACHINE_NAME, and find the .vmdk file.

Open it using the notepad and add the following line:

 

smc.version = 0

I 'll let you know what happens next...

I have searched a lot, but wasn't able to find how to use boot flags in VMware...
I added the line: "bios.bootdelay = 5000", however during this time whichever button I press, my virtual bios will show up...
In virtual box while booting I used to press: F8 and use boot flags (/amd -v -x -f npci=0x2000 dart=0)

 

what should I do to use boot flags in VMware?

 

Thanks!

OMG! This worked for me!  And BTW, ".VMDK" is not a text file.  You mean't ".VMX".
