  1. Well, another evening with this. Created empty 16 GB Image Flashed installer to image via: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Monterey.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/monterey-new Set up EFI structure with Opencore 0.7.5 files; copied Bootx64, OpenCore.efi, removed all other .kext / .aml files Renamed .dmg to .img, copied to /isos/osx Adapted VM xml <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-6.0'>hvm</type> and changed path to new image Booted VM, no option to install OSX, only to reset NVRAM.
  2. Tried that and didn't really help anything. Reverted changes, deleted image and re-build it from scratch. VM is throwing kernel panics when it boots, before it gets anywhere near to the OS installer. <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm'

  3. I will try that. The installer didn’t allow to format the disk with a GUID partition table, hence no way forward. I couldn’t change the filesystem to APFS.
  4. I made some progress this morning and can get the Monterey installer started and also to recognize a passed through SSD. I used this guide to start over: https://github.com/osx86-ijb/Hackinabox/, however made few adjustments. I am using an image as installer, not a USB stick. I pass through a 512GB M.2 SSD, USB Keyboard and Mouse, and the GT710 GPU The Opencore version is 0.71 as I can see on the boot screen and I am using the EFI folder from that guide on GitHub. Now my issue - The SSD is recognized as external, hence cannot be used to install. I came across this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/f0cc4t/internal_drives_shown_as_external_opencore_amd/ Question: How to I need to adjust OpenCore to recognize the passed through SSD as internal? Do I need the NVMEfix.kext?
  5. Well, it could be frustrating However, I'd say this is just a lack of hackintosh knowledge at my end which can be addressed by learning and a more step by step approach. So it seems to be not a technical issue, but just a lack of knowing all the twists and tiny steps in-between the steps. All the guides, howtos in the www can become confusing as they often require background knowledge of how to deal with Apple drivers, kexts, AMLs, EFIs etc. With Windows you just insert a stick or DVD and install straight forward, same with many linux distros. This topic is different, much more difficult and less hardware agnostic. This is no criticism, just a reflection about my zero-progress. So far I read following guides: https://pastebin.com/RtgNHqac https://github.com/Pavo-IM/Hackinabox Both seems to address macOS on Unraid and though the guides are comprehensive, they require additional knowledge at least on my end. ... to be continued
  6. Seems to be impossible for me to get this running. I adjusted the VMs xml and used the config.plist with my kext and my system info. No chance. Maybe I stick with a BigSur Macinabox and try to install that on a NVME and passthrough the GPU.
  7. Making little progress, and still stuck I created the image like described above Mounted it and then mounted the EFI Copied my EFI folder into the empty EFI of the image Copied the edited image with the new EFI structure to my UnRaid host Adapted the XML code you shared above and pasted it into the VMs XML; removed the USB stick code I used earlier Started the VM, and the picture is same as last night. The boot process gets stuck I attached the opencore logs from the image's EFI folder and also the VM's XML and the config.plist - Can you guys have a look? Can there be something wrong with my CPU core mapping in the config.plist or am I missing a kext? I am also using an HDMI / USB over IP extender and use a USB 3.0 port on the UnRaid host which I extend through my desk in another room. In that room I have a USB Keyboard and Bluetooth "dongled" mouse connected. The two USB entries in the XML are for both KB/Mouse. I also haven't passed through a NVME SSD at this stage since I want to get the installation dialog going first. If that's a problem, please let me know. Thanks MacPro_vm.xml opencore-2021-10-31-133627.txt opencore-2021-10-31-133713.txt opencore-2021-10-31-133810.txt opencore-2021-10-31-133846.txt opencore-2021-10-31-133934.txt config.plist
  8. Thank you both, I'll try that later today and report back. Amazing support!
  9. I got a new VM to boot from a Monterey stick I created using the dortania guide and a MacBook Pro. However, boot process always stops here: A reboot went a bit further, but then also stuck. Any advise? I'll check google meanwhile.
  10. Thank you! Your hint pointed me to this thread, and the boot order change in the XML did the trick. Had to add that tag to the NVME and change it for the Windows ISO and the clover disk to 2 and 3. Now VM boots fine without the need to got to EFI. Lets see if this also works for an Build update and reboot. Upgrade to 22489 Insider Build went fine. However, reading the screen prompt below, I understand that the NVME is actually not the boot device ("not found") but the VM boots from another disk. Any advise? Or am I misinterpreting this? My XML looks like this, NVME disk is at the bottom: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm'> <name>Windows 11</name> <uuid>removed</uuid> <metadata> <vmtemplate xmlns="unraid"

  11. Hast Du eine GPU an das OSX durchgereicht? Wenn Du so einen Adapter in den HDMI port steckst solltest Du in der Lage sein die Auflösung zu ändern. Damit wird ein Display simuliert.
  12. I upgraded to 6.10RC2 (link has been shared here in the forum) and wanted to make use of the Windows 11 support for the VMs. Created a new VM and picked OVMF TPM for Bios and Q35-6.1 for machine. Used Spaceinvaders clover boot loader image for Windows and switched bus to Sata I can boot into the VM and see both NVME and the QEMU bootloader disk. However every restart gives an error at first, which I need to correct by choosing the NVME as primary boot device in the "BIOS" / EFI settings. Screen after starting the VM: Screen after pressing return: The NVME I choose in the "BIOS" / EFI: How can I make this stick, so the VM will always boot straight into Windows 11?
  13. @RiDDiX Did you use a guide to install your VM? If so, can you share the link? I am currently reading through this https://github.com/osx86-ijb/Hackinabox#5-making-the-recovery-usb-on-linux But on the page to create the installer, it says that Monterey should be avoided since USB port mapping is broken. I wonder how relevant this is in a VM? Meanwhile, I am reinstalling a VM based on this video from Spaceinvader since I want to trial the Geforce GPU and the HDMI/USB over IP extender to get a GPU accelerated GUI. Basically, I am trailing a few installs before settling into a "final" production VM with passthrough GPU. Thanks for any advise. If you feel more comfortable to reply in German, just shoot me message
  14. I deleted the VM (was my 1st hackintosh ever) and started from scratch with a Big Sur installation with the help of the spaceInvader Macinabox docker & helper scripts. So far so good. The thread shared above says that MacPro7,1 isn't supported and one should stick with 1,1. How did you install your system @RiDDiX, since you are already running Monterey? What kind of CPU is detected in your VM? I'd like to set up my VM with least possible patches / hacks. All this Opencore / kext stuff screams for instability and issues from my view. But I might be wrong
  15. Added a 2x 120mm fan holder to improve the airflow around the NVME adapter, GPU and X570 chipset. I sometimes get a temperature warning for the NVME disks in the adapter card (just above 40° celsius, not really concerning) and want to address that. X570 temps dropped from 61° to 45-47°. Fans are 2 x Noctua NF-S12B redux-1200 PWM. Also added a 4x PWM Splitter with a 3M tape on the backplate. Worth to note, the system would not boot if a fan is connected to the first "CPU" connector of the splitter. Updated photos below, also showing final cabling.
  16. Reading into the RestrictedEvents kext now. used this video to install the kext, aiming to being able to update to Monterey. Config.plist shows the restricted entry now but the vm does not restart. Any chance to turn the changes back through recovery mode? a few general questions - Can I change my Imac1,1 "version" to a newer iMac and does that make sense / would that e.g. improve performance or compatibility? How do I change the CPU to a newer model? I read through pages in this thread, but it sounds to me that I am sold to Penryn. Will also get a HDMI/USB over IP extender which should allow me to get the native speed at my desk vs. using a remote connection (Unraid is sitting in a closet next door). Thanks
  17. CPU is still reported as "Unknown". Can / should this be addressed?
  18. What should I say. It works. Performance is good, quite close to a native 2017 MacBook Pro. Can I change # of CPU cores in the XML or does this require changes with OpenCore?
  19. 1. Done 2. Done 3. Done and stuck in boot process at this stage: I also added a USB Keyboard and Mouse to the VM (edited through the XML view) so I can pick the boot disk. What concerns me a little bit is that the UnRaid host restarted after the screen stayed like this for a few mins. Can the VM / GPU path through cause this?
  20. The GPU is recognized in Unraid, incl. Soundcard and I can assign and use it for example in a Win11 VM. Reason why I didnt dump the vbios was simply just trying to skip this step if there are already vbios available to dl. Will look into this and retry with the dumped vbios. Regarding mem balloning - Since My host has 64GB memory and I am not using all memory for the other VMs and probably also not for the dockers I think can leave that deactivated. edit / Dump seem to work, even though my GPU config is not standard. I am using the onboard Aspeed VGA as primary GPU (without a monitor) and plugged the GPU into the PCI x1 Port (x16 port occupied with a NVME card). Used the script from Spaceinvader and dump looks ok to me. I didnt make any edits to it. Question to clarifiy: So I need to attach a monitor and configure the GPU in the OSX VM, then I can switch back to a VNC or Parsec connection? I do not plan to sit next to my UnRaid host and want to work with OSX like I am doing with a WinVM through RDP.
  21. I build a GT710 into my system and its being recognized. So I downloaded a bios from techpowerup and removed the header with a hex editor (hopefully removed the right content). Edited my XML with some cope paste from @RiDDiX file. Vm is starting, but in the VNC window I see following where the boot process is stuck. My GPU part of the XML: <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x25' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </source> <alias name='hostdev0'/> <rom file='/mnt/user/isos/Bios/GT710.rom'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x03' slot='0x00' function='0x0' multifunction='on'/> </hostdev> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x25' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </source> <alias name='hostdev1'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x03' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </hostdev> And I changed: <memballoon model='virtio'> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x03' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </memballoon> to <memballoon model='none' /> Can I leave the VNC part in the XML to be able to monitor the VM remotely? Any other advice how to fix this? Are there pre-edited BIOS files available (would like to rule this out as a source for failure) added the GT710 to a Win11 VM and it gets installed incl. Nvidia apps. Did no gaming testing so far, since I use the VMs for Productivity only. Thanks
  22. ok, got the fact about the manual XML edits. How do I need to adjust the XML to get from 8 to 12 cores? Tried a few changes in the XML - VM starts but does not boot up.
  23. The adjustment to the XML fixed the issue and I cloud sign into iCloud / Appstore etc. However, in the settings the NIC is still shown as Vmxnet. I threat this as optic for now. Do I need to run the helper script every time or will that override manual changes I did to the XML?
  24. I‘ll stick to BigSur for now, at least until I gained decent knowledge about virtual Hackintoshs. So the GT710 should be fine, given the prices for other supported GPUs. Monterey isn’t a big change as I see it. Will report back on the fixes for the virtual NIC.
