VirtualBox Yosemite stuck.... AppleKextExcludeList


testo    0



Firs of all, it's my first post on this forum so thanks hackintosh for your work, this is great.


I'm trying to install Yosemite as a virtual mahcine (VirtualBox) on my Windows laptop- (lenovo haswell)

I tried several images but none work (last one is 10.10.1, since the 10.10.2 link is unavailable), even the preinstalled ones (vdi images), i always got stuck.


I tried all flags I could (/haswell -x, -v,....) but nothing works.

The only thing relevant  I found is that it freezes at loading the kext "AppleKextExcludeList", wich I extracted and open in an editor : a lot of references of virtualbox are here. If the name corresponds to what it stands for, it's clear to me that I 'll never be able to run these images under VirtualBox.


I tried to create my own bootable iso, but this seems pretty hard to accomplish under a windows environment (even with magic iso support of HFS+)


Maybe I've gone too far, but I'm really stuck here, so any help would be appreciated.

Well, I don't know if this will help anyone else, but I was having a hard time getting the Yosemite to boot up in Virtualbox without using the "-x" option (safe mode).

I did some experiments and finally found a way for it to boot fast.


When booting, I have to use the option "UseKernelCache=No"

After using that option, the osx boots up fine. :)
