I would like to try snowleopard on VirtualBox on my Thinkpad T510.

I am using Win7 64bit + VirtualBox 3.2. I created a Mac OSX server virtual machine in my virtualbox and start the VM using empireEFIv1085.iso.

This boot process is fine, and it tells me to change image and hit F5. I tried every snowleopard image I have, every image gives me a black screen. There's not even one response, just a blackscreen, but it looks running rather than hanging.

What should I do with that?

The following is the setting of the virtual machine in VirtualBox:

Base Memory:             2048 MB
Processor(s):            1
VT-x/AMD-V:              Enabled
Nested Paging:           Enabled
Video Memory:            128 MB
3D Acceleration:         Enabled
2D Video Acceleration:   Disabled
Remote Display Server:   Disabled

and my Thinkpad T510 has i5 CPU, 8G Memory, and NVIDIA NVS 3100M.

Thanks a lot for your attention. It's driving me crazy!

Best Regards. Larry.

VirtualBox does not support the client version of OSX. Only the Server is supported.

Server is only supported when running on Apple (server) hardware. Unless a EULA has been updated that i missed... – peelman Mar 4 '11 at 16:37
