i would like to 'test' a virtualized Mac in Virtual Box. I'm wondering: can i create a virtual hard disk (in VirtualBox) then format it in HFS+ (native for Mac) ? Are there any known issues or problemed ? Thanks

What could possibly go wrong with your virtual machine that you need to make sure of it in advance? – Oliver Salzburg Jun 4 '12 at 9:16
What tool do you want to use to format the VHD? Which OS do you use to host VirtualBox and what version of OS X do you want to "test"? – slhck Jun 4 '12 at 9:19
I would like to use OsX Lion, and format the partition using Lion standard tool to format disk. – stighy Jun 4 '12 at 9:25

In my experience (Snow Leopard only) HFS+ works just fine inside VirtualBox.
