Hackintosh on Virtualbox (Linux host)

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install on VirtualBox using the Yosemite iso from this site. I followed this howto: http://www.macbreaker.com/2015/01/virtualbox-yosemite-zone.html. The VM crashes as soon as the grey splash screen comes up. Here's the virtualbox log: https://bpaste.net/show/353728833a6a. I also tried the mavericks iso and I get the same error. I tried on VMware and I get an error about the CPU being disabled by the guest. On QEMU I don't get any errors but it hangs right after the splash is shown. I also downloaded a Mountain Lion vmware image from somewhere else and it gives me the same result. I tried different VM settings and boot options and at one point it seemed to boot but it never loaded a GUI, just a terminal that showed syslogd messages.


My virtualbox version is 4.3.26.

QEMU: Tried 2.2.0 and 2.3.0

VMware Workstation version

Linux kernel version: 4.0.1 on Gentoo

CPU: AMD A4-1250 APU with Radeon HD Graphics

Video: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Kabini [Radeon HD 8210]

RAM: 4GB (2 for the VM)

Network: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter

I have inform at some threads about success with VirtualBox Yosemite.

I am using VirtualBox Yosemite up to 10.10.2.  For installation I follow: http://www.macbreaker.com/2014/05/os-x-mavericks-in-virtualbox-with-niresh.html

Some details is impotent from:https://www.hackintosh.zone/forums/topic/5064-virtualbox-yosemite-install-stuck-at-2-minutes-left/page-12

For me only stuck at shotdown is a problem.

Good luck

Thanks for the reply. That's pretty much the same as the howto I was following, it has more stuff but I never got that far.


I saw another post where somebody mentioned problems with virtualbox 4.3.x so I decided to try 4.2.x but I had to downgrade my kernel to 3.18.13 in order to compile the virtualbox 4.2.x modules. After booting the new kernel I decided to try once more with virtualbox 4.3.26 and to my surprise it booted without problem.


I suspect it's not related to the new kernel but since I remember seeing a bluetooth message just before it crashed a few times it may be that I misconfigured the new kernel and the bluetooth driver is not working. I'm supposed to compile the bluetooth driver as a kernel module but I compiled it built-in and since I don't have the firmware for it on my initrd the driver fails to load. It's installing right now. After it's done I will rebuild my kernel with bluetooth support to confirm if that was the problem. Thanks.

    • bought 3 laptops costs about 2000$ more to just install this hackintosh and 3 of em is unsupported.  i think i am done with hackintosh
    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
