VirtualBox's Guru's Meditation message "a critical error has occurred while running the virtual machine and the machine execution has stopped." displayed after installing Yosemite 10.10 on my AMD Ryzen 5 3500u PC.

Also, these lines of commands were not effective in bypassing  w/e Apple hardware requires to run their OS X:

cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\"
VBoxManage modifyvm "Yosemite" --cpuidset 00000001 000106e5 00100800 0098e3fd bfebfbff
VBoxManage setextradata "Yosemite" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemProduct" "iMac11,3"
VBoxManage setextradata "Yosemite" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiSystemVersion" "1.0"
VBoxManage setextradata "Yosemite" "VBoxInternal/Devices/efi/0/Config/DmiBoardProduct" "Iloveapple"
VBoxManage setextradata "Yosemite" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/DeviceKey" "ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc"
VBoxManage setextradata "Yosemite" "VBoxInternal/Devices/smc/0/Config/GetKeyFromRealSMC" 1


Here are the virtualization settings for Yosemite:

Base Memory - 4096 MB

Boot Order - Optical, Hard Disk

Acceleration - Default Para-virtualization

Video Memory - 128MB

Graphics Controller - VBoxVGA

Acceleration - 3D is selected

Sata Port 0: Yosemite.vdi (25GB)

Sata Port 1: Optical Drive - Yosemite-Zone.iso

USB Controller: xHCI


What am I doing incorrectly for Yosemite not to boot up properly?

I was in the same state, but the problem was solved by starting bios.
