Creating a OSX guest from a OSX host. startup.nsh, what next?

Postby david.portabella » 16. Jun 2017, 12:10

Hi, I am trying to install a OSX 10.11 guest within a OSX 10.12 host.

I use the image "Install OS X El Capitan.dmg".

But at the very beginning, I end up with this script startup.nsh.

How to install OSX 10.11?

"Install OS X El Capitan.dmg" is not a valid installer for a new VM, as it requires an existing OSX installation. Please take a look at [Howto] Create OSX ISO from the OSX Install app.

Moving from "OSX Hosts" to "OSX Guests".


PS. Next time, please downsize your attached images by 50% (at least). Not everyone is blessed with a HiDPI display ;)
