Install OS X 10.10 Yosemite in VirtualBox

FYI, I just downloaded yosemite today to try this and after the iesd step, the resulting yosemite.dmg already has both BaseSystem.dmg and BaseSystem.checklist. I think you can remove all the steps regarding creating a sparse image, copying the files, and then recreating the dmg saving many gigs of extra copies.

I get UEFI Sheel too. "change the SATA Port" is how to do?

Ditto, how do you "change the SATA Port"? Mine is set to SATA Port 0 in the VirtualBoxes' Settings, Storage. Is there a way to do it using the UEFI shell or command line?

Can you please help with this, I am not able to install MAC OS X 10.9 Virtual image. I am installing it for the first time and have followed all the instructions.

@JesusGalvan I also have that shell prompt popping up, did you solved it by just changing the Sata port of the .vdi file in the Controller: SATA ?

Thank you.
