  1. Using a hackintosh its always possible that an update can break things. But for us using a vm hackintosh we dont use any strange kexts etc so is not as likely I dont think. The Catalina product code changing only effects the container as it tries to download that id. So when it changes it cant find what it needs to download. No doubt the id will change again. (it has now 3 times since release i think). Anyone who has already installed Catalina it will not effect that at all. I will have a look on photos next time im on that machine
  2. So you are able to boot and get output through your 1060 as you can get to about this mac. Then gpu is passed through. Otherwise you would see nothing when the vm boots. That means MacOS doesnt have the nvidia webdrivers loaded. Have you enabled nvidiaweb in clover configurator? Then installed the correct nvidia web drivers and rebooted ?
  3. Hi @maxse I am glad that you got it all working with mulvad If you want to backup the vm. Manually backup the vdisk for it that you will find in the domains share /mnt/user/domains The libvirt image just contains the xml for the vm not its 'contents' I will be making a new video for a virtual router that will be much easier to configure very soon.
  4. Backup the clover vdisk before you start. Boot up then use clover configurator and make the change there. If for any reason afterwards, you cant boot then just replace the clover image with the backup.
  5. I use the saphire rx570 4gb pulse mini. Works fine without a hitch. I have to passthrough the vbios though. Also for sound to work the gpu and sound counterpart must be put on the same bus. Here is my xml below for reference. <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x0f' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </source> <rom file='/mnt/user/domains/vbios/Sapphire.RX570.4096.180105.rom'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x05' slot='0x00' function='0x0' multifunction='on'/> </hostdev> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x0f' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </source> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x05' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/> </hostdev>
  6. @Rhynri Hi @ Very late reply but it is called a lametric smart clock.
  7. Hi. Splashtop works better with e1000-82545 nic type than vmxnet Please try changing the nic type to that by changing this line <model type='vmxnet3'/> to <model type='e1000-82545em'/> For sound you should be able to get it working through splashtop by adding a virtual sound card. (also i think splashtop supports clipboard sharing..) Please add this to the xml <sound model='ich9'> </sound>
  8. Ok so I didnt realise that you are having the issue when the vm is using the GPU. What the problem is is that I you are using a Nvidia gpu.I thought you had gone back to vnc. An nvidia GPU this needs web drivers to make work. So 3 things you will need to do. 1. Boot back into the vm without passthrough using vnc. Install splashtop desktop personal streamer (free) https://www.splashtop.com/streamer on the vm. And the Spalashtop desktop on your computer. 2. Open the clover configurator and goto system parameters and check nvidia web then on smbios make sure you have product imac 14,1 (see pics) 3. Stop then vm. passthrough the graphics card again, then boot. (you will still see the garbled screen) Use splashtop to connect to the screen. It will be very small screen but don't worry. Open terminal and run this bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update/master/nvidia-update.sh) That will install the webdrivers for the gpu easily. After that reboot and you should have a workable vm !! ....hopefully 😃
  9. The macinabox template uses custom ovmf files. If you change <os> <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-3.1'>hvm</type> <loader readonly='yes' type='pflash'>/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd</loader> <nvram>/etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/e930dfa3-ce5f-4a14-a642-d140ed8035bd_VARS-pure-efi.fd</nvram> </os> to be as below you will be back without the screen corruption. <os> <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-3.1'>hvm</type> <loader readonly='yes' type='pflash'>/mnt/user/domains/MacinaboxCatalina/ovmf/OVMF_CODE.fd</loader> <nvram>/mnt/user/domains/MacinaboxCatalina/ovmf/OVMF_VARS.fd</nvram> </os> hope that helps 😀
  10. Yes this is the problem here. The clover image is a qcow2 image not a raw image <disk type='file' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback'/> <source file='/mnt/user/VDisks/MacinaboxCatalina/Clover.qcow2'/> <target dev='hdc' bus='sata'/> <boot order='1'/> <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='2'/> </disk> Please change the xml to be as follows <disk type='file' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='qcow2' cache='writeback'/> <source file='/mnt/user/VDisks/MacinaboxCatalina/Clover.qcow2'/> <target dev='hdc' bus='sata'/> <boot order='1'/> <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='2'/> </disk>
