Description

i am trying to install os-x El Capitan (64bit) as a Guest System. This is the same Version as the Hostsystem. After Starting the Guest the Guest-Windows is always black. No Output, no Errormessages. On the Hostcomputer i get this Errormessage in File /var/log/system.log:


Jul 5 16:18:54 My-MacBook-Pro VirtualBoxVM[62548]: WARNING: The Gestalt selector gestaltSystemVersion is returning 10.9.5 instead of 10.11.5. This is not a bug in Gestalt -- it is a documented limitation. Use NSProcessInfo's operatingSys temVersion property to get correct system version number.

  • Start the VM. Not from a saved or suspended state. Clean start. Let it "crash".
  • Shut down the VM (if it hasn't aborted by itself). Not suspended, not paused. Shut down. If you can't shut it down by normal means, close the VM window and select "Power off".
  • Right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager. Select "Show Log..."
  • Save it (just the first log), ZIP it and attach it.
