Hello everyone,

I'm trying to get a VM with High Sierra 10.13.6 to work but I'm out of luck here, I've tried many pre-installed images of virtual disks from various sources still couldn't get it to work, except for one with version 10.13.2, yet I cannot reboot the machine, for some reason it keeps getting stuck at "MACH Reboot".

My Host Setup:
HP Compaq Pro 6305 SFF
CPU: AMD A10-5800B APU with Radeon HD Graphics (4CPUs) ~3.8GHz (Compatible with SSE4.1 Instruction Set)
Total RAM: 12GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT-630 (Dedicated 2GB)

Currently I have another VM with 13.10.6, which I've obtained its image from (techsviewer.com), but it keeps getting stuck at boot screen, precisely at "Start Random Seed", and it never gets past this point.

I'd appreciate any help with getting this VM up and running, or on explaining how to solve this problem, or is this setup incompatible with that version of macOS at all?

Thank you so much <3

After trying on a different machine, I managed to get the VM to work using the latest Mojave version, and I tried to create a working snapshot and try to run that snapshot on my starting machine, the one with (Amd A10) CPU, and it works and reboots without any problems until it reaches the point of "End Random Seed" at the start of booting, which is odd and excuse me if I'm asking noob questions here, but I can't seem to have a properly functioning machine using the original machine and I'm not really sure exactly why.

Anyways, I've tried tot install Clover, but the installation fails every time, even with RehabMan's fork, I've noticed that the directories were created at "/EFI" partition, and I've also tried to add Clover as a boot option, and it just boots into a very large screen with white background and Clover logo, but nothing else.

Please I'm stuck here, and I need to make this work ASAP.
Thank you everyone for your time and attention.
