Failure to install HA on VirtualBox 4.3.40 running OSX 10.7.5

Hi, new user here, please be mild.

I have a MacBook4,1 running OSX 10.7.5 (latest supported OS) laying around and I thought I’d try out home assistant on this machine. I already have a VirtualBox installation on the MacBook that’s been running win7 fine. VirtualBox version is 4.3.40, the latest one able to run on 10.7.5 (afaik).

So I have followed all the steps in the Mac OS Tutorial, but the HA virtual machine crashes with no helpful information:

Anyone care to take a look? Thanx.

It points to a log file, have you tried looking for info there?

Of course I have, it’s the boot sequence and 20 or so pages of debugging info, I can post it here if there’s any linux guru around.

I guess what I’m asking is if anyone is successfully using HA on such a hardware/software configuration.

Went all the way back to HAOS 2.12 and still getting the same error from the virtual machine, albeit in a different spot in the boot process…
