Mac Catalina Virtualbox

I have a MacBook Air with MacOS Mojave 10.14.6.

The current version of VirtualBox is 6.1.8 r137981 (Qt5.6.3). The version will work with Catalina (macOS 10.15.5). However, the Guest Additions (drivers) software will not work with macOS versions that boot from APFS volumes. An image of the About This Mac window on my example host computer is shown below. The macos-on-virtualbox.sh, scripts/make-Catalina-Installer.sh, and scripts/make-Catalina-Boot.sh scripts each contain settings that should be reviewed before running. Once you have the required software, files, and configurations set use make to handle the setup process. Catalina-guest-install.log (5.8 KB) - added by Kalak 18 months ago.

  • Install Mac OS On VirtualBox Virtual Machine Steps. 2.1 Create MacOS Virtual Machine In Virtualbox. Open virtualbox, click New button to create a new virtual machine. Input macOS high sierra or macOS mojave in the Name field, select Mac OS X in Type drop down list, select Mac OS X(64-bit) in Version drop down list, then click Next button.
  • Extract the macOS Catalina Virtual Image. When you first get the Virtual Image it will be in what is.
I use VirtualBox 6.1, but had the same problems with 6.0.14.

I'm running a virtual machine with MacOS 10.15.1 without any problems.
For me it is not possible to update the virtual machine to 10.15.2.
I tried these things:
  • Chose the update in System Preferences / Software Update
  • Download the 10.15.2 combo update and install that
  • Create an ISO from the 10.15.2 Installer Application and boot from DVD/ISO Image

For the updates, after reboot and for the boot from ISO-disk, all activities on hard drive or DVD stop at the Apple Logo a second after boot.
Going to EFI and searching for the boot.efi in the macos_updates folder does not help. After failing, it is still possible to boot into the 10.15.1 version by manually selecting the correct entry in the Boot selection of EFI. Log files don't show anything.

Was anyone able to update to 10.15.2 or install a clean 10.15.2? Can someone confirm the problem?
