I was hoping to find information about installing osx in virtualbox in general or on Linux. Pity this manual only applies to older outdated platforms “1. Install VirtualBox on your Windows PC by following the instructions. Click “New” to create your new virtual machine.”. #Step 6: Install macOS High Sierra 10.13 on VirtualBox When you’ve completed the step above, open VirtualBox and click Start on the virtual Machine. The VM will start running and you’ll see some codes running, it will take 5-10 minutes, when it finished, on the first page you’ll see the Welcome page, choose your country and click Continue. Install Ubuntu On Virtualbox ( Mac Version ) Virtual Machine. Launch Virtualbox on macOS. Create a new virtual machine by clicking the New button, then input a virtual machine name in the Name input text box, select the guest OS type ( Linux ) from the Type drop-down list. Then in Version drop-down list select guest OS version Ubuntu (64 – bit). Before starting to create a virtual machine, install VirtualBox on your Windows 10 system, and then download and add the Extension Pack. Step 1 After running the virtualization program, click the New button in the tool menu to create a new virtual computer for macOS Big Sur. Install OSX Mountain Lion into a VirtualBox (VB) VM, running on an old Windows Vista AMD laptop. This time I'll show you (briefly) how to install OSX Mavericks to an Intel Laptop running Windows 8.1. The installation procedure is divided into a few steps. Pre-installation preparation 2. Install the Niresh OS X Mavericks (10.9.0) distribution.

By default, VirtualBox only allows to install 32 bit OS on it. But sometimes, 64 bit OS is wanted for specific uses such as running platform specific tests. To allow installing 64 bit OS on VirtualBox. Below information is needed.
Here is the official documentation about 64 bit OS:
VirtualBox supports 64-bit guest operating systems, even on 32-bit host operating systems, provided that the following conditions are met:
You need a 64-bit processor with hardware virtualization support (see the section called “Hardware vs. software virtualization”).
You must enable hardware virtualization for the particular VM for which you want 64-bit support; software virtualization is not supported for 64-bit VMs.
If you want to use 64-bit guest support on a 32-bit host operating system, you must also select a 64-bit operating system for the particular VM. Since supporting 64 bits on 32-bit hosts incurs additional overhead, VirtualBox only enables this support upon explicit request.
On 64-bit hosts (which typically come with hardware virtualization support), 64-bit guest operating systems are always supported regardless of settings, so you can simply install a 64-bit operating system in the guest.
On any host, you should enable the I/O APIC for virtual machines that you intend to use in 64-bit mode. This is especially true for 64-bit Windows VMs. See the section called “'Advanced' tab”. In addition, for 64-bit Windows guests, you should make sure that the VM uses the Intel networking device, since there is no 64-bit driver support for the AMD PCNet card; see the section called “Virtual networking hardware”.
If you use the 'Create VM' wizard of the VirtualBox graphical user interface (see the section called “Creating your first virtual machine”), VirtualBox will automatically use the correct settings for each selected 64-bit operating system type.
Based on the documentation, VirtualBox allows to install 64 bit OS even if you have a 32 bit host OS installed. But one necessary condition is that you have a 64 bit processor. The next thing you need to do is to enable hardware virtualization.
You can enable this by going to the BIOS settings, usually when you start your computer, press F12 and then it will go into BIOS mode, there you can find the config setting 'Virtualization Technology' and vt-d feature. By default they are disabled, you need to update them to Enabled. After this, restart the computer and you will see the 64 bit OS option when you create new virtual machine.
One last thing you need to do is to have an 64 bit OS to install on the created VM.
If you don't know how to install OS on VM, you can go to Guide for installing Ubuntu in VirtualBox on Windows.
To know which CPU you have, on Windows, you can open Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Processor.
On Linux, you can use command lscpu.

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro (64 bit) on an Asus laptop, Core i7 processor with 12 gigs of RAM. I have made sure that virtualization is enabled in the BIOS. All is good on that end. Despite this, VirtualBox does NOT allow me to install any 64-bit OS.

I am also using an ASUS laptop with Windows 7(64 bit) installed and it works for me after the BIOS setting.
Can you do a check and make sure that no other host apps are using vt-d/AMD-v. such as system level debuggers, other VM platforms and some resident anti-virus applications
