Installing Guest Additions on Mac

Postby PTP23 » 17. Jul 2019, 21:26

Step 4 from the Manual:
In the Virtual Media Manager, select the ISO file and click Select button. This mounts the ISO file and presents it to your Windows guest as a CD-ROM.

There is no "Select" button in the Virtual Media Manager, as shown in screenshot.

You shouldn't need to select the ISO, you're doing it the wrong way!

With the VM window having the focus, go to the host's menu "Devices" » "Insert Guest Additions CD Image...". Run "VBoxDarwinAdditions.pkg".

I noticed that there's no OSX/Darwin specific section for the GAs. Understandable, since they were just added with version 6.0.0. On the to-do list... ;)

Moving to the "OSX Guests" from the "OSX Hosts" area. In there you'll notice a sticky, "OSX GAs (VBoxDarwinAdditions.pkg): what is working.". You'll notice in the big, red, bold letters that the GAs are currently broken. But do read it, so you'll know what to expect or not...
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
