      Hello there. The wait time may vary depending on your computer’s specifications.

      Please wait a little longer in step 2, the MacOS installation will continue.

  1. Paul

    Got through the second stage of installation okay after running boot.efi but then when it restarts it just drops back to the UEFI shell again.

    I’m using the ISO provided by this site and the latest version of virtual box. I’ve tried the whole process 3 times now. Any ideas?

      Hello, Paul. Thanks for your comment.

      Before running the boot.efi command, insert the ISO file on the MacOS virtual machine.

      In addition, two videos were made with this ISO file. These videos are available on our YouTube channel.

      Paul, can you try the processor value of your MacOS virtual machine by setting it to 1? And make sure you set a minimum RAM value of 4 GB.

      1. Paul

        Okay I’m trying re-installing again using one processor.

        One thing I’ve just noticed when I’ve gone in to the disk utility is that it’s automatically become an APFS Partition.

        I definitely selected Mac OS Extended (Journaled) when I created it. Is this normal?

        1. tolqabaqci

          Hello there.

          Did you install MacOS with VirtualBox?

          Yes, Mac OS Extended (Journaled) is automatically selected.

          APFS: Apple’s new file system is more resistant to data corruption due to bugs and power failures.
