Hi,
Upon completion of the installation on a Power Mac G5 Quad gives error, saying that performing a reinstallation. VirtualBox version that could be used for this team?, As I saw in some forums can only on computers with dual core, this is a quad, I do not know if that would change anything for the installation of properly.
Greetings!

You're going to need to buy a Mac with an Intel processor. VirtualBox will only work on Intel based computers.

Hi,
According to the web I could see the Power Mac G5 Quad Xeon has a 'Nehalem' Intel is not wrong or if I saw the configuration is correct.

Uh, no dude. The Mac Pro has gone through several iterations and that one was announced a few weeks ago. It is not a G5 Mac Pro. That's like saying a GeForce 4 is the same as a GeForce 280 hence they should do the same things.. :roll:

G5 = PowerPC. VirtualBox does not support PowerPC. And given that noone except console manufacturers and IBM use it any more, it probably never will.
