    Hello,

    Unable to get pass Step 30. When it boots, the Apple indicator goes half way, then it reboots itself repeatingly. I followed all the steps according to instructions but unable to get to Step 31 as the boot looping might be a debugger called: . Take a look at the following screenshot I shared via link.

  2. Aurelio Barreto

    I tried same steps without success.
    When apple gauge is near 40%, the VM reboots.
    There’s a bit difference with me, because my PC is Linux (xenial) and NOT has VM acceleration on BIOS.

  3. Toshg

    Had the same issues listed above … To get it installed and working, I turned the CPU Virtualization options Off for the initial install, than Virtualization On for the Install and finally Virtualization Off once it was installed… Not ideal … But got it to work …
