Xcode Freezing on Mojave VirtualBox

Postby justin2taylor » 15. Mar 2019, 19:49

Setting up a Mac development build system on Windows using VirtualBox and Mojave. I got everything installed correctly, and it’s basically functioning fine, but whenever I try to build a project or do anything memory intensive in Xcode, it just freezes and beachballs. I never get any error messages or anything, and it does it on different types of projects. I have 8 GB of RAM allocated, so I think that should be sufficient. Anyone running to this issue? Thanks!

A Windows 10 host running a macOS guest tends to mean only one thing... a Hackintosh on non-Apple hardware! This is not supported and is also a violation of Apple's End User License Agreement (EULA). More details can be found at: Important notice regarding Mac OS X as Guest

Had you searched around the forums you would have seen that there are many similar threads all of which end up in the same state - locked and consigned to oblivion. Yours will be sent the same way the next time a site admin / mod passes by unless you can prove that you have genuine Apple hardware.

My crystal ball is currently broken. If you want assistance you are going to have to give me all of the necessary information.
Please don't ask me to do your homework for you, I have more than enough of my own things to do.

In the really rare case (0.001%) that this is actually an Apple computer, in which you have installed Windows, and you're trying to boot a legitimate OSX guest and not a Hackintosh, send me a PM and I'll remedy the situation. Be prepared to provide evidence in such a case.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.
