Running Niresh in vbox FakeSMC: [Fatal] failed to initialize SMC device

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to install Niresh 10.9 in a vbox vm on a FreeBSD host machine. I've downloaded the Niresh iso torrent, and mounted it on the vm. When I boot up the vm it shows me the boot screen, and I can enter my boot flags.

 

I'm using a amdfx processor, so i've tried entering 'amdfx -v -x'

Then i get an error: 'FakeSMC: [Fatal] failed to initialize SMC device'

 

I've been looking around for this 'FakeSMC', and it seems that it's something I install after isntalling niresh? Do I need and iso that includes the FakeSMC?

 

I'm not sure what other info I should include, so please tell me.

I'm having the same problem and it happens right when booting from the ISO. That fix seems to be for _after_ the OSX is installed. But I'm not even getting to the Language selection screen.

 

Btw, this only happens on Virtualbox on Ubuntu host. Seems to work fine on a Win7 host. 

 

Did anyone manage to install OSX 10.9 on Virtualbox on an Ubuntu host?

 

Thanks.
