Virtual box keeps sending me to UEFI Shell v2.1 when opening macos

To make a long story short. I downloaded a virtual machine and macOS. Every time I try to open Mac OS I get sent to UEFI Shell v2.1

I did google it and someone online said to type FS0: in the Shell and give some other commands but shell does not recognize that command.

There is no way to get to MacOS. I even deleted this shell program.

Why is virtualbox not working!?

Very frustrated here.

I assume you mean that you boot the VM you somehow got and that client goes directly to efishell. One could use that shell to discover or change settings.

The main problem is that we have no idea about what you have. To be clear. Apple doesn't provide a public vm image for personal use. We kind of have to send you back to the site you got this virtual machine from. Some of the files you get online are not legal or worse they may contain malware.
