Hello,
It was a long road to boot Mojave as a guest on my MacBookPro Mojave VirtualBox host.
But I can't now to enter in Recovery mode on guest OS, it booting to normal mode, Command+R not working even I have switched off this combination in VirtualBox keyboard manager.
Any suggestions for which partition need to boot?

Did you have it running directly in VirtualBox without the need of starting it via the sh script?

I need a MacOS VM for testing purposes as it's cheaper a buying a 2nd mac.

A really "inventive" solution/workaround has been posted by user 'SchroedersKater' in the thread macOS Mojave 10.14.3 does not boot. Not straight forward, but it seems to work, haven't tried it...

Already found a different solution. Got it running in VirtualBox without the need to start with the sh script or clover solution.

@shadi1989
Do you plan on not telling us the solution? The forums are a place for sharing ideas/solutions... ;)

I know, wanted to share but i cant find the github link/script anymore. tried so much things to get it nicely working that i cant find the source anymore.
browser history is filled with a bunch of other stuff now too (wanted to run Mojave on a Synology) that i cant trace it back.
