Mac crashes trying to run Windows 10 guest

Postby Beard_mafia » 25. Feb 2019, 16:04

I have a 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro running Mojave 10.14.4 and Virtualbox 6.0.4. I am trying to set up a Windows 10 VM but every time I get to where it asks for the .ISO file location it crashes my Mac. Virtualbox will run fine until I try to run the VM and it crashes every time. I have uninstalled/reinstalled, restarted, tried a different .iso file but nothing seems to work. Has anyone seen this or have any ideas?

No, and no.

Anything unusual about your setup? Is this a fresh OSX installation, an upgrade?
(10.14.4? Really? Already?)

Any funky location that you're looking for, or you have attached? I'm thinking network mounted Volumes, external drives, etc.

Nothing out of the ordinary. It is not a fresh install, but it is a pretty clean install. I think the issue might be that I am on a BETA OSX.

Ah, it's a beta, you're right. Moving then to the "OSX pre-releases" from "OSX Hosts".

Are you on a dual-boot system? Does this happen with 10.14.3? Or earlier?

I am not dual boot, this isn't my main computer so I am not worried about it and there is nothing saved on it. I might just have to use boot camp.

And you don't have an external HD that you can boot from, right? I'm just trying to get to the bottom of this and see if it's a 10.14.4beta issue or not...
