Cannot boot installer in Virtual Box

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to create a VM with Mavericks.

I'm using the Niresh Mavericks distro.

 

My config is the following:

Lenovo W520 laptop

Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise

Intel Core i7-2760QM @ 2.4GHz

24GB RAM

NVIDIA Quadro 1000M

Intel 82579LM Gigabit Ethernet

 

I get stuck at the boot, with a black screen (sometimes I get a grey screen with the apple logo).

 

I tried combinations of VirtualBox configurations and options in the boot screen, but without success

 

I'll happily provide any more information you think is helpful.

 

Thanks

@ I haven't found an exact option for 'backup graphics extensions'. After typing ? on the boot menu to list all the options I tried the following:

 

GUI=No -v

GraphicsEnabler=No

 

No matter how I try, I always end up failing to load the installer. How can I provide more information for you to check?

 

Thanks

    • I don't think the ten series work yet on Mojave, I have a Ryzen with a GTX 1050 and I'm staying in High Sierra for now.
    • Hardware Information CPU Intel Core i7 6800K @ 3.40GHz Broadwell-E/EP 14nm Technology RAM 32.0GB G.Skill Trident Z @ 1599MHz (15-15-15-35) Motherboard Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. X99-Ultra Gaming-CF (SOCKET 0) Graphics 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (MSI)
      I have tried High Sierra and Sierra with no good luck. I had it installed once before but the issue was I couldn't boot into it, of course, lol.   Now I can't seem to get the installer to boot, but can get to the bootloader to enter flags. I've tried npci=0x2000  nv_disable=1 -v -f -x which ends up just crashing the thing and it says it's exiting.    I'm really trying to get this to work, I'm sick of Windows always having updates and dumb issues. My timezone won't even work right lol What?    Please let me know what other info you need so I can get this loaded!   PS: Tonymac banned me for discussing "illegal distributions" or using one or some crap like that... was a member for like 5 years. Really crappy of them. Not sure what they're even talking about. No warnings or anything. I think because I mentioned another site they got pissed lol    
    • I now see that my wifi adapter doesn't work as it's Intel.  I purchased USB-AC53 Nano which works, but handoff, even with functioning Bluetooth and wifi doesn't work.  Suggestions?  
    • @Niresh is there any work around for graphics for the gt1030 on dell optiplex 760?
    • @Niresh - my apologies for the delay.  I didn't see this until now.  I've made quite a bit of headway and am up and running except for my wifi from what I can tell.  Is this something you can help with?  As to the specs:   https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/servicetag/6bx4y52/configuration   Thanks so much!
