Can’t get this to work with macOS in VirtualBox. It immediately takes me to Disk Utility in macOS to initialize the disk but the disk isn’t there.. any ideas?

Kevin Ganser nah I ended up going the Hackintosh route, luckily my current PC Build was compatible and I’m very happy I went this route.

uggghhh... why no connection to something like ubuntu? If someone NEEDS windows, they can stay in windows. Not saying their needs aren't important, just less of an occurence than going from windows to linux... hell, even apple. :-/

Captain here: If you can't see the Storage you add, do the following: 1. Right click "computer", select manage. 2. Select disk management, right click your newly added disk 3. Select "New Simple Volume" 4. Click Next > Next > Then you'll see "Assign the following drive letter" (select the any letter you like) > (Note: You'll need to uncheck the "Perform a quick format", so it will work) Next > Finish 5. Wait for the format to done loading 6. Your newly added disk is there for you to use, works every time i tried it. "Flies Away"

well, i tired moving hdd from usb ide adapter to my internal ide on my workstation and it seems to work now... so thats odd, my usb to ide treats drives just like internal ones, can even boot from it on modern computers.
