I had the same problem when I tried to install Sierra, but now I downloaded OSX Mavericks and it worked fine.

If you got Error loading drivers while boot Go to System -> Motherboard and Disable Enable EFI (Special OSes Only).


its because system try to reach some resources (anything connected to mother board) and it fails, so the vm restarts. solution is changing the mindset: remember you are tunning a device that will share your host devices resources so dont go full settings. if you are getting this error try to preallocate RAM/ROM and set the graphics and cpu core usages to minimal requirements of your machines duty. then you wont see that error again
