Screen resolution/Xcode installation

Postby Aldo55 » 5. Jul 2018, 06:25

Hi, I'm very new to all this and I have installed Virtualbox and I'm having a couple of issues after installing macos x. Just to explain a little why I am setting up a VM, I have an idea for an app and I need a mac to do it on.
Firstly, I can't get the resolution to fit my monitor for my Mac to fit on my screen. I've tried everything. I have Youtubed and read everything and the message I'm getting is that my Mac which is in/on my win 10 and I'm the host, and that means I can't get vbox guest additions installed and working properly, because I'm not the guest. Is this right or am I doing something wrong? and,
Secondly, when I try to intall xcode it gives a message that I can't install because mac version needs be older than what is installed in the virtualbox, before you sayanything I updated VB to the new version 5.14 and it still does the same as 5.12.
I hope this all makes sense and I hope someone knows the the answer to these riddles. Thanks Aldo

I split your post from the thread "MacOS Guest Additions - What does / doesn't work in 2018?", your questions did not really fit in.

We're going to need to see a VM log from a complete VM run:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Login / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.

Hi Socratis, I copy and pasted into a notepad file. I hope it's ok? Aldo

OSX guests are only supported on Apple hardware (which you do not have). See: Important notice regarding Mac OS X as Guest.
