How to Install macOS Sierra 10.12 on VirtualBox?

In our previous post we have shown you that how to install macOS Sierra 10.12 on VMware and now in this article, I’m going to show you that how to install macOS Sierra 10.12 on VirtualBox. Apple has announced the next version of its Mac operating system: Sierra. Of course, the real change is that, after fifteen years, Apple has finally ditched the “OS X” moniker. All things old are new again, and the new operating system will only call “macOS.” We don’t yet know if Sierra carries a “10.12” version number, but with developers getting their hands on the OS later today, we should soon have that question answered.

Apple’s Craig Federighi ran through a whole bunch of new features to be included in the revised operating system. He started by mentioning Continuity and Auto-Unlock, which now combine to let you seamlessly unlock a desktop or laptop Mac merely by bringing your Apple Watch close, using what Federighi described as “time-of-flight networking” to detect the watch’s proximity. It was unclear from the presentation whether or not this feature is an Apple Watch exclusive; Federighi did not explicitly say that Auto-Unlock would work with iOS devices.

So, I’m not going to discuss anymore regarding Apple new release “macOS Sierra” instead; I’m gonna talk about installing macOS Sierra on VirtualBox on Windows operating system.
