Dev environment with VirtualBox

I am attempting to setup my dev environment with Harvester using the virtualBox approach (Setting Up Harvester Development Environment · harvester/harvester Wiki · GitHub)
This path does not work since the installer using v1.0.3 iso image gets stuck with the log
"Extracting file to /usr/local/"

Any pointers on how to solve this and debug it further?

Also, is there a better option to run harvester locally in dev mode?

Thanks In Advance,
