    How to install OS X Mavericks in Virtualbox with Niresh

    NOTE: One common issue with Niresh is that it tends to lag out of the account creation process, and skip straight to the Mac OS X login screen before you can make your own account. If this happens, simply log into Mac OS X with the following credentials:

    Username: root
    Password: niresh

    This will log you into the "root" account of Mac OS X. From here, open the System Preferences app, go to "Users & Groups", and create your own account. (We don't recommend that you use the root account permanently, because it is insecure.)


    Step 6: Make the screen bigger
    Though this step is optional, I still recommend you do it anyways. Anyways, when you first use your virtual machine, you'll probably notice one thing: your screen resolution is 1280x1024 (or 1024x768 if you forgot to turn off GraphicsEnabler=Yes). Since Virtualbox doesn't "technically" support Mac OS X, there's no official way to change this. But here's how you can change it anyways.

    First, you need to access org.Chameleon.boot.plist, the settings file for your virtual machine's Mac OS X bootloader. You can do this from Finder, the file browser built into Mac OS X. However, Finder hides your hard drives in Mavericks by default. To unhide them, open Finder, and click on File -> Preferences in the menu bar at the top of Mac OS X. Under the "Sidebar" settings, check "Hard disks", so that Finder will display your virtual machine's hard disks in the sidebar.

    Once that's done, access your virtual machine's main hard drive through Finder, and go to the folder "Extra". Open the file org.Chameleon.boot.plist. Between and in the file, insert the following line.
    Graphics Mode

    You can change "1920x1080x32" to whatever resolution best fits your monitor. For instance, if you want to use the 1600x900 resolution, type in "1600x900x32". Once you've saved it, turn off the virtual machine.

    Next, turn off your virtual machine. Open the Command Prompt in Windows (make sure you are logged into an Administrator account on Windows). You can do this by opening the Start Menu, and typing "command prompt" into the Start Menu search bar. Then, type the following command into the Command Prompt.

    cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\Virtualbox"

    This command will change the focus of the Command Prompt to the program folder for Virtualbox (if you installed Virtualbox somewhere different, then change the command to wherever you installed it). Next, type in this command:

    vboxmanage setextradata "Name of virtual machine" "CustomVideoMode1" "1920x1080x32"

    This command activates "vboxmanage", a command-line program included with Virtualbox that allows you to edit the properties of your virtual machine, including its built-in resolutions. Replace "Name of virtual machine" with the name of your virtual machine-- you can find the name of your virtual machine in the left pane of the Virtualbox main window (in the screenshot below, my virtual machine is named "Mountain Mac 2"). Replace "1920x1080x32" with whatever resolution you're using.

    Press the enter key to submit the command. Once that's done, start your virtual machine again. Your virtual machine will now boot Mavericks  in full resolution. Congrats!
    I'll just repeat what I said in my other two Virtualbox guides. Installing Mac OS X on a virtual machine is excellent practice for the real thing: installing Mac OS X on your actual computer. Don't get too comfortable, though. Compared to most computers, Virtualbox virtual machines are very "vanilla", meaning that they're very compatible with Mac OS X in the first place. You can't count on being that lucky with a real PC.

    And even if you don't plan on doing this for real, with a Hackintosh, it's still a really cool thing to try out over the weekend.

    This process will let us run MacOS from inside a program in Windows. As forever, we're going to use Virtualbox for that. It's necessary to see that Windows virtualization applications do not officially approve Do My Paper For Me MacOS, so you will not be able to allow full graphics support. This tutorial should only be practiced as a test of concept.

    This has never happened to me on the internet. I am also research SMS Gateway  then read about articles. I tried to plan and shop once a week, every day, and the menu system is the first to break. Thank you, and now it will be easier.
