  1. 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.
  2. When I run with -v, the last phrase I see printed is: VM Swap Subsystem is ON
  3. VirtualBox Help

    Unfortunately, I'm having the same problem and this did NOT solve the problem for me.
  4. 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
