This is something I decided to tryout since I received comments about issues with VMware builds, so I decided to take to VirtualBox to see if that fixes anything. It’s a new area and I only spent about 3 days making it, but it performs just as good as VMware in my eyes, but I’ll let you be the judge. As I’ve said it’s new to me, so I’m not promising any massive amounts of help until I look into it in more detail. Until then let’s just call it an experiment. Make sure to read the following before asking about things:
Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 Retail Virtual Box Image ---------------------------------------------- - Archived as an SFX, just double click the .exe to extract. - Clicking "About This Mac" breaks and relaunches Finder. - Comes with direct downloads, that's the norm from this build onwards. - Completely Vanilla build. No third-party software. - Fresh installation of 10.7.3, everything was taken care of before or during - Good boot times, usually under a minute. - In terms of updating, same as usual goes - don't update without prior knowledge it's safe. - I think this will fix the freezing on Apple Logo... - Requires the modified version of HackBoot (included) to boot. Chameleon can be installed on some machines. - Sound and resolution/graphics may require specific drivers. - Sound may work on some machines without the extra drivers. - This is an *experimental* build. I haven't got much experience with VB so I'm not sure how it'll perform. - To find useful drivers visit here or here. - Using USB Device Filters crashes the guest and freezes the host. - Works smoothly, not lag on the mouse (that I've seen so far). installation.
As you can see it’s not as simple as with VMware, but that’s the price we pay I’m afraid. Hopefully I’ll be able to combine my builds so they run on both softwares (I’ve already taken a look at this; shouldn’t be too hard). Underneath is the setup video, which I recommend you watch as it’s a new platform if you’re coming over from my VMware builds. If you want any download links, just check underneath the video:
If you wish to download the image via torrent, you can just click here. As promised, I’m including direct links as well this time around, but you’ll have to deal with the fact that they will be slower than the torrent. You can find the direct links here.
