Click finish. Ian C. I'm not having any luck finding the. XML file. I do see VirtualBox. Should I put it there? No luck on that either, just FYI. David that's a bummer. I haven't tried this in a very long time so VirtualBox may have moved on. This works for me. I'm about to abandon it for reasons totally unrelated to VirtualBox, but let's see if I can remember everything I did to get it running: 1 Like the other answer said, start with a rip of an original SL DVD.

I followed it, leopard is nearly installed now. Only difference is i didnt enable my second processor, as it gave me kernel panic. Problem: Boots to gray screen and clocks on the spinner … Versions VB 3. Main issue is 3. If you open your XML for the machine you will see its now neatly added where it needs to be … and when u start up..
Does anyone have a resolution for this issue? I have created the VM and have managed to install the iso to 'Leofx' now when I try to boot from it I get stuck at the message:. I was having the same problem. An easy solution for me was to use the distro iPC OsX However, sometimes it freezes or during boot or even after it.
This looks promising, but so far I haven't been able to get through the Leopard install tried several distros including iPC, Kalyway; iDeneb gets closest. Has anyone had success with a newer patched VirtualBox? I'm going from 3. Thanks for the replies….. I eventually go it to install properly without using the -legacy command….. Now I have a different problem. I am stuck at step 8 of phase II…. How do I get around this? I was able to install Leopard finally without the -legacy command a couple of days a go.
I now have a new porblem, I am stuck at step 8 of phane II. How can I get around this? I have installed iDeneb v1. It just sits at the Apple logo with no spinning wheel. I have tried leaving it for hours but it's still stuck. Any ideas people? Same problem here, it sits at the silver apple logo and doesn't do anything. First this article is really helpful for me. I tried to install ideneb Pls advice me.
Right now I am trying to install iDeneb OSx86 v1. I even left it on overnight and it is still stuck on the apple loading screen. I have installed the leopard part successfully and managed to install snow leapord. Problems :s I installed Leopard with iPC Install went perfectley, but when I am at Phase 2 step 3, I cant boot leopard :s I only see the grey screen with an apple.
No turning wheel or something.

Ive tried to install the damn thing but it just wont listen to me. Hey, I have problems with installing Leopard iDeneb v1. In the settings screen I haven't got Acceleration under the system tab. Thank U! Then open it up again, power on the VM and you should be fine. Don't edit the xml file while the application is running or else it won't work. The article doesn't mention that little detail and took me hours to figure out why I wasn't even able to get to the installation screen.
Ive was able to install the osx with the ideneb 1. The only issue i had was with the Synaptics touchpad. I just had to turn it off then back on to get it to work. The issue im having is with the install of Chameleon. I dont understand it. Can we get a more specific install for this guide? I just did the double click install to my Snow drive which im guessing is the wrong way? Can anyone help me get Chameleon istalled? Im sooooo close! Can someone help with the Chameleon install? I double clicked it to install it which seems to be the wrong way.
Help Note: An issue i had was my laptop touchpad wouldnt work when installing osx. What i did was turned it off and on then it detected it. Ive successfuly installed snow osx86 Got this working on linux with VB 3. Networking is reliable, but not automated. Weird, but works like a charm. I have one question regarding the above intallation. I intalled leopard using IAtkosv7 v The only thinks it does not work is the netword and sound, but that is most certainly connected with missing drivers. Install failed Unable to intall.
The installer could not install the software, because there was no software found to install.
I've followed the guide, but I can't seem to figure out where I went wrong or what might be the problem. Why don't just upload files that works with 3. This is really confusing. First I followed all the steps and got it to install iDeneb v1. I tried looking for a answer but couldn't find one. I thought maybe it was a bad installation or something so I tried to install it again but i cant.
I even tried making a new virtual HDD and even removing and making a new profile for leopard. Can anyone help me? F8 and then -legacy solved this problem for me. A person above said he used ONE chipset driver. Not sure how to do that. I did -legacy. Now, I'm just sitting here at the Apple Logo screen light gray background, gray apple logo in middle.. Its been sitting here for mins. Do I just need to keep waiting? Ok, I found a solution to this damn gray-screen stuck on apple problem.
Use the setting mentioned in the Website. If you edit xml file while VirtualBox is running, the entry will be deleted automatically. You will be able to see the installation screen. I did see the Checksum error during the boot process, but the boot up proccess did not stop. I had spent many hours trying to have the settings right. After the install completes , unload the install DVD. For me, the network didn't work with iPC, but for iDeneb, it was working OK But you have to manually uncheck and check the 'cable connected' checkbox to enable the ethernet. Taranfx, can i install ideneb as my main os instead of in virtual box and still upgrade to snow leopard retail?
Will keep you posted! I installed Snow Leopard and everything.. I'm on the final reboot. Used -legacy option at boot up. Anyone else experience this? Any solution? After this, iDeneb I then went on to Phase II. Also, if you are using a CD, check Passthrough.
It installed Ok. Chameleon installed Ok. Set a new password and use it.

After about a week I gave up using this method. Instead, get the beta of VirtualBox 3. I have this running on two machines with Internet working — a Core 2 Due and iCore 5. I bought the retail version of Snow Leopard and used that. Good luck. OK, I overcame my last problem by sticking to VB 3. Maybe its the Snow-Leopard distro, I do not know. But I notice several people here have the same issue, but there is no solution.
It is the last step! I am experiencing this same problem. I am still looking for a solution. If I do find anything, I will post here. My solution to this was to use a USB hard drive I have with a partition with the retail install cd restored on it. Had this handy, probably not the best for everyone else. This just doesn't like me at all. I've tried installing using VirtualBox 3.
This is very annoying needless to say. I'm attempting to use iPC OSx86 I have updated machine. Anyone have any ideas? I'll keep banging my head against this wall, but at this point I'm not sure where to go next. Thanks in advance, and any questions, let me know! I was getting the same error with VirtualBox 3.
Try VirtualBox 3. I'm also running a bit system, but was able to get it to install successfully without the patch. I was having this same problem too. Finally got it going as VB3. They do in VM Ware. But i just get stuck on the apple log after the install finishes and it restarts over and over so i guess it can be done with pc hardware.
If you are installing SnowOSX v3. I tried various Darwin boot flags and still got the same errors. I selected that and suddenly it boots into the Darwin installer. Maybe should have been obvious, but is wasn't. How did you get the option to use Darwin Boot Flags? I'm not getting any screen where I can add them. Pressing F8 during the Oracle screen just brings up the boot configurations, and everything starts running from there.
Guys, if anyone of you could extract all fonts from Mac OSX Snow Leopard system and upload it to some file sharing service exmpl. I'd be so grateful! I did exactly the steps written above. When the box boots, it remain freezed on the apple logo and doesn't go ahaid. I tried with VMWare, but I have the software virtualization problem. Does that mean that I cannot install it with VirtualBox either? I am using SunVB 3. The only install I have had success with is Kalyway.
After Leo install, however, I cannot complete the SL install. Have this been seen by others? I have 3. Hi, Having a problem, trying to install OSX VirtualBox version 3. I set the VM as instructed in the guide but with 1GB ram, 2 cpu cores and added a shared folder, everything else is default or like in the guide. LG E notebook? I followed all the directions above, but installation hangs on the error below.
I also posted a screen-shot of below. I am running VirtualBox 3. Specs: Lenovo T61, Intel core2duo. Using IDenebv1. When I did it this way, I got the GUI installer, and was able to Erase and Mount my hard drive, and go through the install successfully. Unfortunately, the machine just keeps restarting into the install disc and reinstalling MacOSX over and over.
When I remove the ideneb. I can find hardly any info on what to do next. Check the settings of your virtual machine. It worked for me. Did you have any look finding a driver for the graphics so resolution isnt so big?? Neeed to find one! I've had virtualbox running other OS's in the past with virtualization disabled only using one core , but OSX just doesn't like it. Oddly, when i didn't do any modify to the XML the Virtual Leopard could running but It only shown the apple logo screen which was loading… I wasn't even able to get to the installation screen.
After hours of unsucefulls trys to get ideneb run on VB stable 3. Any other combination is unsupported and will therefore not work. Any post that talks about a different combination will be removed without warning. Any discussions of ways to get around the Apple SLA will also be removed. So grab now and hold your older version. Carefull v3. After hours of unsucefulls trys to get ideneb run on new stable VB 3.
I had tried them in my troubleshooting, but what worked in the end didn't require these flags, although I do run a 64 bit OS. I did in the mac os x install both iatkos and ideneb need to install the voodoo kernel everything works fine with chameleon 2. I did need to install upon install various things like my nvidia driver, etc. So my successful results came from iAtkos v7 and iDeneb 1. I'm new to this whole osx86 stuff.

Could somebody explain where i can find instructions on installing the voodoo kernel and chameleon 2. Thank you very much for this post. I spent a few hours pulling out my hair as to why iPC wouldn't work, and now I know somebody else who knows what he's doing a LOT more than me has the same problem. I've done everything ok but when I try to boot the machine with the hard disk the one in wich I installed Snow Leopard and I get the Mac logo and nothing else happens. I guess you should start saying that your pc must be able to virtualize in the BIOS, otherwise, none of this is worth to try….
Hello Guys, I did Phase 1 and Phase 2 without problems! I don't understand Phase 3. What I'm missing? Hi ppl, I need some help with the first step: everything installs without a problem, but after reboot the booting process gets stuck in a loop of CrashReport on mds, atsserver and loginwindow, these three just keep looping endlessly. After numerous feeble tries I finally managed to get Leopard up and running.
Tho, once more I've hit the wall. I can't get the two disc images to become visible from within Leopard. Im running: VB 3. The Snow installation still didn't want to work but that was solved by copying the original DMG file into Leopard and mounting it there. Booting with -v gives me a hint that something's fishy with one or more of the kext's. I followed the step to install the Snow Leopard, after booting with snowfx virtual machine, I landed into kernel panic, saying:.
Now, another issue is about the Display. Currently, I have modified the com. Any idea how to make the display to utilize display ratio? I thought the installation went fine, as everything looks fine. But, when I tried opening any image using iPhoto or document using iwork , I am not able to view the content. When, try changing the view size, I do see the content for a second, then again blank display come.. Certail users had trouble with the guide due to lack of proper hardware support — Intel VT […].
This is also illegal as the Mac OS must be installed on Mac hardware. Visualized hardware which is what Virtualbox uses does not satisfy this so is not allowed. Trying to install iDeneb v1. I am not sure what I am doing wrong here. I start the VM and I have the apple logo and just a spinning wheel??? Any help. I have 2 questions for you.
