Guru Meditation error for MacOs X 10.8 Mountain Lion

Postby bananasplit32 » 21. Jun 2019, 23:06

I can't seem to get through this error. I know virtulisation is enabled, and that I'm not using too much memory. I've looked in the log file and it says: 'aRC=E_UNEXPECTED (0x0008ffff)
aIID={ab4164db-c13e-4dab-842d-61ee3f0c1e87} aComponent={DisplayWrap} aText={Screenshot is not available at this time}, preserve=false aResultDetail=-52'

no idea what this means and i've gone through a couple tutorials on how to fix it, but have no clue.

any help is appreciated. thanks.
ps. i've attached my log file if you would like to view.

You do not have an OSX Host, you have a Windows Host, and OSX guests are only supported on Apple hardware (which you do not have). See: Important notice regarding Mac OS X as Guest and ch. 3.1.1 Mac OS X Guests of the User Manual.
Mac OS X is commercial, licensed software and contains both license and technical restrictions that limit its use to certain hardware and usage scenarios. You must understand and comply with these restrictions.

In particular, Apple prohibits the installation of most versions of Mac OS X on non-Apple hardware.

These license restrictions are also enforced on a technical level. Mac OS X verifies that it is running on Apple hardware. Most DVDs that accompany Apple hardware check for the exact model. These restrictions are not circumvented by Oracle VM VirtualBox and continue to apply.

Moving to "OSX Guests" from "OSX Hosts".
