    I used to have a 2006 iMac, and I had a VirtualBox VM running Snow Leopard Server. Since I got a 2008 Mac Pro and migrated all my stuff to it, the VM no longer works. It just freezes when it's starting up and shows driver errors in the console or says "PCI Configuration Begin" forever (since it always starts in Verbose Mode in VB).

    Is there anything special I'm supposed to do? I have it set to Mac OS X 64-bit. I've tried 1 and 2 processors; 512MB, 1GB, 2GB RAM.

    EDIT: I changed it to "Snow Leopard Server" because I remembered that I had the server version installed. It's against the terms of use to install the Snow Leopard PC version, which means VirtualBox might not allow it.

    The newest version of VB does not fix the problems?

    No. I tried the one I had before and the newest one.
