VirtualBox

Ticket #16644 (new defect)

Opened 20 months ago

Last modified 15 months ago

Installation of clean OSX 10.12.4 fails.

Reported by: socratis Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 5.1.18 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: OSX Server
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

  • Create a new OSX VM with the 10.11 template. Download the 10.12.4 installer from the AppStore. Use the installation script from  Howto: Create OSX ISO from the OSX Install app
  • Issue 1: the VM will not proceed with the installation, unless USB3 is specifically enabled in the template; the template needs an update (or a new 10.12 template) that makes USB3 mandatory.
  • Issue 2: the VM gets stuck on the following:
    IOConsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
    

Some users have reported this error with previous OSX versions, when the Finder "kicks" them out of the system with that message and to the login screen. Will try to find the reference.

Please note that an OSX 10.12.3 will update just fine. The same client will fail. Nothing relevant in the logs unfortunately.

I am having the same issue 2: getting stuck at IOConsoleUsers: gIOSScreenLockState.... but using VirtualBox Version 5.1.20 r114629 (Qt5.6.2). Have tried changing several VirtualBox settings and nothing works.

Tested "Working OSX Sierra VM config file" - hangs too. I attached hanging screenshot. BTW I tested 2 images created by  https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=81443 and  https://github.com/geerlingguy/macos-virtualbox-vm

@michielie
OSX installs are only supported on Apple hardware.
See:  Important notice regarding Mac OS X as Guest.

As for me I use MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) + macOS Sierra 10.12.4 + the latest VirtualBox for today. See other people facing the same issue  https://github.com/geerlingguy/macos-virtualbox-vm/issues/24

@VitalyM
You posted that link 10 days ago. Still no solution there. Any particular reason you posted it again?

comment:9 Changed 19 months ago by VitalyM

@socratis the first link is repository home - instruction I used to make iso. The 2-nd link is a particular issue.

comment:10 Changed 19 months ago by DenisFR

The same with 10.12.5 and VB 5.1.22.

comment:11 Changed 19 months ago by petri

Same config as DenisRF: 10.12.5 both as host and guest, VB 5.1.22

comment:12 Changed 18 months ago by IOOI

Same effect on both a early 2011 MBP running 10.10.5 and a mid 2014 MBP running 10.10.5 as host. Both get until this message when booting from a 10.12.5.iso which was created using said script.

Same Here! VB 5.1.22 over OSX 10.10.5

I didn't notice your comment until today. Can you please explain in full detail what was "solved"? And how? Which "uninstall script" are you referring to? And which "installer"?

comment:17 Changed 17 months ago by franiu

Still failing, VirtualBox 5.1.26 r117224, host macOS 10.12.5 (16F73).

Any new development on this?

@franiu
Things in the open source world don't get to be secret. So, if there was a new development on this, you would have known it by now. Ergo, there is not.

Glad you subscribed to the ticket, but remember that either you provide a solution, or patience is a virtue.

It turns out that the macOS Sierra 10.12.4 (and later) installer won't boot on a system where the EFI firmware vendor is "EDK II", which includes VirtualBox. That behavior is specific to the Sierra 10.12.4+ installer and does not apply to an older Sierra install updated to 10.12.4 or later. Whether this behavior is intentional is something only Apple can answer.

High Sierra beta 6 (build 17A344b) does not exhibit this behavior, therefore no fix is currently planned on the VirtualBox side.

The USB problem (installer hangs earlier unless xHCI emulation is used) is probably unrelated.

comment:23 Changed 16 months ago by michaln

The problem with USB is also specific to the Sierra (and High Sierra) installers, but it happens in 10.12.3 already. Basically the installer boots if the VM is configured with either xHCI or OHCI, but not with OHCI + EHCI. Again the installed OS behaves differently.
