OS X in VirtualBox

  • Use myHack to install your retail copy of OS X Mavericks in VirtualBox

    • First use iBoot to install an older version of OS X; I used my retail disc of Snow Leopard

    • Then, download myHack and follow the Guide

      • For the installer, I created a new, 8GB vdi disk and put the installer on that. Once the install was complete, I disconnected the VDI
