Cannot boot installer in Virtual Box

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to create a VM with Mavericks.

I'm using the Niresh Mavericks distro.


My config is the following:

Lenovo W520 laptop

Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise

Intel Core i7-2760QM @ 2.4GHz


NVIDIA Quadro 1000M

Intel 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet


I get stuck at the boot, with a black screen (sometimes I get a grey screen with the apple logo).


I tried combinations of VirtualBox configurations and options in the boot screen, but without success


I'll happily provide any more information you think is helpful.

@ I haven't found an exact option for 'backup graphics extensions'. After typing ? on the boot menu to list all the options I tried the following:


GUI=No -v



No matter how I try, I always end up failing to load the installer. How can I provide more information for you to check?
