Uh, yes... this isn't going to work.
00:00:16.522128 Host RAM: 7903MB (7.7GB) total, 235MB available
...
00:00:16.788606 RamSize <integer> = 0x0000000100000000 (4 294 967 296, 4.0 GiB)
You have barely enough free RAM available to safely cover the VMs graphics RAM.

For this host to be suitable you will have to free up a LOT of host RAM, possibly add more, and reduce the allocation to the VM to the minimum acceptable.

Apple requires that a Mac guest is only allowed if the physical computer is real Apple hardware.
OSX guests on non-Apple hardware

Your PC is not an Apple computer, so regrettably, we cannot help.

Ah yes, that too.

I'm so used now to looking to the right to see if it says "arm64", that I totally forgot to look to the left to see the host OS type.
