VirtualBox - AMD FX-8350 - unknown CPU family

Recommended Posts

Hello community,

I'm working hard on my knowledge to install Mac OS X in VirtualBox.


After mounting the image in my VM and booting it with "amdfx -v -x" it says that "power management may be incomplete or unsupported" and it stucks by Ethernet....





Im using

  • Niresh-OSX-10.8.5.iso (without modification, stock from a torrent)
  • VirtualBox 4.2.16 (german edition)


  • Windows 8.1 Pro x64
  • AMD FX-8350


  • 2x4GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance CL9
  • ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0
  • NVIDIA GTX 580
  • Seagate SSHD
  • the latest BIOS drivers with virtualisation enabled (no more changes)


and the following settings for the VM





Where is the problem?

I have seen some topics with booting the images with Cameleon or something else but I don't know why. And please don't write a comment, that if I wan't to run OS X nice and uncomplicated, that I have to buy another PC, based on Intel (saw it in some other forums).


I also looked for people who have the same problem but I didn't find a solution.

I'm open to download another image because I only want a "newer" (Lion, Mavericks, Leopard) OS X to try the system.



I want to try the system only in a Virtual Machine because I don't want to crash the data on my HDD.


I tried to start the image in VMware Workstation 10 but the CPU was disabled and when I arrived the EFI it said "unsuccessful".




Greetings from Germany

    • I get this message no matter what I do, I've tried changing my SMBIOS to a newer model to no avail. Anyone no how to get the second install boot to work?
    • This is my first time doing Hackintosh. I've several other machines running Mac using UniBeast and Multi beast. I wanted to try Hackintosh Vanilla. So far, no luck. I followed the Guide and MacPwn Mojave Guide. 
    • Hello! I wanted to install MacOS High Sierra, but the SSD does not appear in Disk Manager. I have a Samsung Pro 840 250GB. Is there a Driver for Intel Gigabit 82579LM Network LAN for MacOS High Sierra?
    • This is my very first post and have looked around the forums to my question but I wasn't able to find the exact specifics that I need. This is my very first windows/mac dual boot project. I chose to attempt high sierra and I hope I am posting in the correct area. High Sierra seemed to be the newest that is possibly more stable than Mojave so I chose that. I'm reaching out to the more advanced builders and experienced people. I'm currently running Win 10 as of now and bought a separate SSD to install a macOS on. Before I invest time and energy into this. I'm wanting to get the best recommendations on what OS I should choose , if my hardware will be up for the task and my best plan of attack. I'll be honest I'm not ready to bang my head on the keyboard for hours. I've been there and done that.  My hardware was some of the best at its time in 2011 and I'm not 100% confident it will work with a more up to date macOS I'm also concerned about drivers for my GPU.  All input is welcomed   Here are my current specs:   CPU
          Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.40GHz    28 °C
          Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
          8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
          ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG8350 (LGA1155)    26 °C
          NS-24E730A12 (1842x1036@60Hz)
          1023MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (NVIDIA)    31 °C
          3726GB Western Digital WDC WD40EFRX-68N32N0 ATA Device (SATA )    25 °C
          111GB PNY CS900 120GB SSD ATA Device (SATA (SSD))    33 °C
