Hello all, Im pretty new to mac osx vm and hope wont get anyone frustrated.
I setup a high sierra vm, installed latest nvidia graphic card web drivers. I tried enabling/disabling the 3d acceleration. set to 128mb video memory. followed a few online documentations of setting up.
Seems doesnt use the grafic card as it should and jumpy and visually fails all over. my windows vms dont do this.

OSX guests are only supported on Apple hardware ''(which you do not have)''. See: Mac OS X guest on a Windows Host.

Also, consider changing your favorite internet search engine. There should be plenty of results about this issue on these forums (all of them locked, hoping that someone will get the hint), but the search engine you're using now, does not seem to return any results for some reason.

And to address the question for those with legal hosts. There are no Guest Additions for OS X guests, so naturally it can't access the features of the host graphics card.
