Installing OS X 10.9 Mavericks Developer Preview in a blank virtual machine is not supported at this time.

However, you can upgrade an already existing OS X Virtual Machine to OS X 10.9 Mavericks Developer Preview. To do so, please follow these steps:

  1. If your Virtual Machine is running, shut it down and click Virtual Machine > Take Snapshot. If anything goes wrong, you will be able to roll back the changes.

  2. Click Virtual Machine > Configure > Hardware > Video and set 128 MB of video memory.


    This step is not required if you upgrade OS X Virtual Machine to OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 2 (13A497d0). This step is required for upgrading to earlier OS X Mavericks Developer Preview builds.

    If you upgrade OS X Virtual Machine to OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 2 (13A497d0) then skip this step and go to the step 3


  3. Once ready, start the virtual machine and download OS X 10.9 Mavericks Developer Preview.

  4. Double-click the installation file and follow the on-screen instructions.
