Hi,

Has anybody managed to get the developer preview of OS X Lion Server working on VirtualBox?

OSX Lion beta is checking the board id against an internal list of about 50 Apple logic boards.
So the virtual machine (EFI/SMC/...) would have to provide a suitable board id.

If this helps virtualbox devel, here are the supported board IDs:

Please read viewtopic.php?f=22&t=31104
I don't know if any other versions beside SL are going to be supported or not but the use of any other work around like the empire.efi is not supported.

I've been trying to run Lion on my MacBook Pro (Unibody mid-2009) without success. Here is what I tried:

- Boot from unmodified install dvd image -> Message reported earlier about invalid board id
- Install natively, make image of the partition, convert to vdi and boot. Same error message.
- Removing the PlatformSupport.plist in both the install dvd, and the installed partition will lead to the kernel and drivers loading. If the VM is configured with 2 CPU /cores, the VM seem to hang soon after loading the drivers.
- If only one CPU / core, the kernel seem to be loading a little further and prints messages about recognizing the hardware like USB hub and the USB keyboard. It hangs right after that. On the installed partition, keyboard input was working.

To me it feels like it doesn't manage to switch to graphics mode or something like that. I'm not familiar enough with the Darwin boot process and a bit rusty on my *nix kernel loading, so I apologize if the description is a little fuzzy. I tested that last night and forgot to take screenshots :(

I would like to point out that Lion Install DVD has the Server version integrated so it should be authorized. I also remember reading that Apple lifted restrictions to allow running the non Server version on Mac hardware.

Are you serious?
Even the Snow Leopard itself is not supported yet. They don't support multicore, threading, power management, hardware acceleration... needs all to be done... and they don't want/care.
The development is totally stopped since long time (3.2.x). If they don't want to support SL, forget Lion.

Yes, I also read that Lion server will be integrated with Lion client/desktop so there might not be any difference in the licensing for Lion when it comes out. This may also open up the SLA for running Mac OS X client/desktop in a virtual machine (still on Mac hardware though I am sure).

I've got the same message with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion under VirtualBox 4.1 beta 1:

Look at your Host and in Apples License. Then you see the answer very clearly. Its against Apples License and so not supported here.

Actually the Apple EULA has changed. http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/01/os- ... alization/. I have also checked my copy from the App Store and it is in definitely a change in the EULA. My guess is that the change had to be made as there in no Server DVD any more but Server is installed from the client version via the App store.

Of course does not change the fact that you need to be using an Apple machine to virtualize Lion.
