reboot loop

Post by joyboy97 »

I just installed a macOs vm and I did power it off soon after the initial installation fishished.
I don't know if this was the cause or not but ever since the initial installation my vm has been spontaniously rebooting while I use it at seemingly random times.
i put 4 cpu, 6 gb ram and 50 gb of memory for this system and i was wondering if there was a way to stop the rebooting.
Otherwise if I just need to reinstalll the vm inwhich case could anyone give me specific instructions on how to install the makke this vm correctly.
Thank you for reading,

Mods: Please move to macOS Guests forum.

Please provide a session log as detailed by @scottgus1 on many occasions.

Start the VM from full normal shutdown, not save-state. Run until you see the problem happen, then shut down the VM from within the VM's OS if possible. If not possible, close the Virtualbox window for the VM with the Power Off option set.

Right-click the VM in the main Virtualbox window's VM list, choose Show Log. Save the far left tab's log, zip it, and post the zip file, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

Please provide a VM log file. Make sure the VM is fully shut down, then right click it in the manager UI. Select "Show Log" and save "VBox.log" (no other file) to a zip file. Attach the zip here.
