Installation of clean OSX 10.12.4 fails.

Reported by: Socratis Owned by:
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.

comment:7 by VitalyM, 7 years ago

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 by VitalyM, 7 years ago

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

comment:10 by DenisFR, 7 years ago

The same with 10.12.5 and VB 5.1.22.

comment:11 by petri, 7 years ago

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

comment:12 by Lars Sonchocky-Helldorf, 7 years ago

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.

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 by franiu, 7 years ago

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

Any new development on this?

comment:18 by Socratis, 7 years ago

@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.

Please put your procedure, Thank you.

comment:22 by michaln, 7 years ago

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 by michaln, 7 years ago

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.

No it doesn't. You didn't try with an official 10.12.x application installer, you tried with a Hackintosh, which is not supported (see: Mac OS X guest on a Windows Host). That's why you need all the extra settings like the "DmiBoardProduct" and "DmiSystemSerial". You don't need those if you're running VirtualBox on a Mac.

If you try to run an original 10.12.5 OSX installer, it fails with the following message, even if the Paravirtualization is set to "None":

I test with original 10.12.6, download from https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1127487414?mt=12 . (Sorry, my host is Debian.)

@widhaya3
So, you are on a Mac and you tried the original 10.12.6 and it worked?

If so, can I have both the .vbox for the VM and a complete VBox.log from a start/login/shutdown/ShowLog session? As well as the full procedure of the installation?

It may be even better if you posted the instructions on the forums, in the HowTo: Create OSX ISO from the OSX Install app, there are a lot more people "listening" there, plus I have that note:

WARNING: The script will work with OSX 10.12.4, .5 and .6, but VirtualBox will *not* boot from such an ISO for reasons yet unknown. There is a bug report open for that: #16644: Installation of clean OSX 10.12.4 fails. If you have any idea on how to make this work, I'd appreciate a comment.


PS. Please don't quote the whole previous message if it's not necessary, it adds unnecessarily to the length of the post... ;)

Nope. I'am on Debian (linux-4.18.0-3-amd64, virtualbox-5.2.20-125813~Ubuntu~bionic, cpu: Ryzen 1700), sorry. I test with original 10.12.6 and yes, it worked.

Sorry again. I've just delete it all, now I'm on Mojave. But I will try to re-install it tomorrow that I will start with El Capitan.

This is not a Mac, just as I suspected, and I told you, in my original message.

You're using an unsupported setup. Unfortunately OSX guests are only supported on Apple hardware (which you do not have). See: Mac OS X guest on a Windows Host.

vbox and logs files of Sierra VM on MacBook Retina.

comment:33 by widhaya3, 5 years ago

@socratis

I want to know the result on MacBook too. So I went to the shop near my house, borrow his machine and try to install on MacBook Retina (Core i5 Ram 8G) using my "Sierra.cdr" image file from Debian. The step of installation was the same as above, except I must disable USB. And yes!, I can install it. You can view in the file "vbox-log-macbook-pro-retina.tar.gz". Hope this help. :)

comment:34 by aeichner, 4 years ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The original report should be fixed as the recent VirtualBox 6.1 release has improved macOS guest support. Closing, please create new tickets if there any issues.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
