VirtualBox install - doesn't work with Yosemite Zone 10.10.1

Question

I am trying to install the very latest Niresh Hackintosh "Yosemite Zone" in VirtualBox. I am using the latest version of VirtualBox from the website.
 
My machine details:
CPU: Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core 3.5 GHZ BX80646I74770K
Mobo: Gigabyte Z87 LGA 1150 HDMI (GA-Z87-D3HP)
RAM: 12 GB
HD: SATA, 1 TB Western Digital
Graphics: integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600
Audio: Realtek ALC892 codec High Definition Audio
Monitor: HDMI (LG 32" TV)
OS: Linux Mint 17.1 (64-bit)
 
I have followed these directions perfectly:
 
I'm allocating 4 GB RAM, 1 core CPU, and 16 MB video memory. I have 2D/3D acceleration UNchecked.
I disabled EFI, as directed in the instructions.
 
Which, by the way, WORKED PERFECTLY FOR Mavericks (10.9). Again, I repeat: With the same hardware, the same OS, and the same VirtualBox configuration, I was able to install (Niresh) Mavericks with no problems. So I'm not doing anything fundamentally wrong. If I went through the same steps with a different ISO (e.g., Mavericks) I'd be using Mac OSX 10.9 right now. So whatever is wrong, it's specific to Yosemite Zone ONLY and was not present in Mavericks.
 
Unfortunately, Mavericks 10.9 is too old. Xcode requires 10.9.4 or higher. If I could easily upgrade to 10.9.4 I'd be fine as well! But if I use the App store, it requires arcane knowledge of hackintosh kexts, etc. to get the system working again. I'm a newbie to Hackintosh.
 
I tried the CPU ID fix. I also tried disabling Audio/network. Still hangs at 50%. I've certainly done my best to figure this out on my own (google, reading existing comments, forums, etc.) but nothing works in my case. I've found 2 or 3 threads on here that seem to describe my problem at first glance, and claim to be "solved" -- but I would dispute that, at least in my case.
 
I also tried 2 different ISO images for Niresh Yosemite Zone (10.10 and 10.10.1). The former had a grey apple logo in the middle of the screen, while the latter has the red apple logo with the axe. But they both froze 30-50% of the way through booting off the ISO.
 
Any help would be appreciated!
 
Thanks,
 
Matthew

I found another torrent, of 10.10.1 that someone installed (a VMDK file) and I tried to boot that -- same problem! It stops halfway.

 

So it seems to be a problem with Virtualbox and/or my computer's hardware.

 

BUT, again, if I use that same version of Virtualbox, and that same hardware to try to run Mavericks, I get no problems.

 

What major change happened in Yosemite that wasn't there in Mavericks? I wouldn't think there would be that much difference.

    • Hey!  I successfully installed macOS Sierra with the Version SierraAMD v3 on my AMD Pc.  But after setting up the PostInstall via Terminal, the OS stops booting at this line : ioconsoleusers: gioscreenlockstate 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0 Any solutions?    My System Specs: Mainboard: Asrock 970 Pro3 r2.0 Processor: AMD FX-6300 Graphics: Sapphire Radeon RX460 4GB   Thanks!
    • Ok, so I built a new hackintosh with Niresh Mavericks 10.9.0 on a modified Dell Precision T7400 and mostly everything seems to be working correctly except for two things: Sound (The obvious one), and Online video content (Youtube, Facebook videos, etc) play at lower than 1 fps, frozen speed, after 10 seconds of playback it reaches 4 seconds of elapsed time and I have found no other forums explaining this or talking about this so I decided to bring it up here. As for the sound situation, I already bought a new card to replace the X-FI, so yes, I am aware of the Sound Blaster Audigy X-FI Xtreme Audio not being supported, but what caught my attention is that the sound was working and video playback problem was gone temporarily, I happened to hear the sound from my headphones sitting on my desk and put them on, and sound. I decided to test a video on youtube, the problem with the videos, gone. But after a reboot, they were back. However I have the logs from today and can give them to whoever wants/needs them to figure out what may have caused the sound to kick in on the X-FI and maybe add support for this sound card. I copied as far back in the time that the system was on while sound was working that I could up to the shutdown event. I know it's pretty large but I am not sure where to look, I am simply handing this out to whoever wants to see what may have given me audio on this card for the session. From what I can see that looked to be the most closely related to my issue is something to do with bluetooth (I don't have bluetooth, btw), it says in console: "9/20/17 6:49:55.785 PM com.apple.audio.DriverHelper[200]: The plug-in named BluetoothAudioPlugIn.driver requires extending the sandbox for the mach service named com.apple.bluetoothaudiod." repeatedly many times. This could be completely unrelated.   The only recent actions I made that I personally can think of that may have triggered this would be: I installed several different versions of a music player through Winebottler and it failed to start, more and likely because of the lack of .net framework 2.0 and 4.0, this is my highest suspicion of being the likeliest cause, but I could be wrong. I installed Crossover and installed the music player in it, which it ran in and is where I discovered that you need .net 2.0 and 4.0 (It had the player in it's database and installed .net automatically) Ran Discord (It uses output/input, so may as well add that in) The player was MusicBee, and when it crashed, it also left a log that I could probably try to reproduce if needed.   Specs: Dell Precision T7400, 1x Intel Xeon x5482 Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 16GB ddr2 ram 667mhz (Tested to be working correctly, please don't ask me to run a mem test I am impatient enough as it is)
