  1. @Endy great guide. Do you happen to know where the USB 2.0 headers sit in the IOMMU groups? I am trying to install a PCIe wifi/bluetooth card for my VM and the bluetooth portion isn't being reconsigned at all. The PCIe card has a cable that runs to a USB header on the board. I suspect I am passing through the PCIe card but not the USB 2.0 header that the card is connected to, and its failing to work. Any idea?
  2. Thank you Ed for another amazing update! Getting easier by the update. Since the upgrade from the Clover to Opencore version from Catelina to Big Sur, I have been having fairly consistent crashes or kernel panics that do not stop the VM, it just hangs until I force close the VM so its hard to know what is causing it. It generally just goes to a black screen and isn't rebooting like it typically would. Everything works great in the VM except for these regular crashes. I wanted to see if anyone else is having this issue and what I could do to identify the root cause? I am
  3. Hi everyone, @SpaceInvaderOne thanks for making an amazing docker! I recently migrated my Intel i5 server to a new Ryzen board and CPU and it hasn't been as a simple to get my Mac OS VM working. I have finally gotten my MSI Radeon RX 570 to passthrough, however I seem to get stuck on the Apple logo on boot for Catalina and cannot seem to figure out how to get passed it. It doesn't even show the progress bar. There is nothing I can see in my logs that hint at what the issue is. I have tried a clean install and get the same issue. My hardware is th
  4. Thanks @Endy. I have tried everything in that @SpaceInvaderOne video but still get a blank screen on boot, the fan start on the GPU and get the error I mentioned in this post: Anyone else that could suggest something?
  5. @Endy thank you for this very detailed guide. I have about the same configuration (ASRock X570 Taichi with 3950x) except that I have an AMD Radeon RX 570, and followed your instructions, and after many tries I haven't been able to get my GPU to passthrough correctly - I just get a black screen. I have also tried an Nvidia GTX 950 with the same results. I am on the latest bios version 2.70. I have posted thread about my issue and wanted to see if you could help?
  6. @david279 I have removed the +pcid from the VM XML and stubbed the GPU using the VFIO-PCI CFG plugin and also adjusted the linuxsys to the following: label unRAID OS menu default kernel /bzimage append pcie_acs_override=downstream isolcpus=6-15,22-31 video=efifb:off pci=noaer initrd=/bzroot I added pci=noaer in addition to moving the video=efifb:off before the initrt as you mentioned. I am still not getting it to work but the amount of errors are reducing: -cpu Penryn,kvm=on,vendor=GenuineIntel,+invtsc,vmware-cpuid-freq=on,+ssse3,+sse4.2,+popcnt,+avx
  7. Hi @david279, thank you for your help. What do you mean by stub the GPU? How would I go about in doing that?
  8. Hi everyone, I have just migrated my Intel i5 6500 build to a new Ryzen build with the below hardware and haven't been able to figure out why my Mac OS Catalina VM is not allowing me to pass through my GPU. Hardware: ASRock X570 Taichi AMD Ryzen 3950X AMD Radeon RX 570 Unlike my previous Intel server, my monitor seems to show the UNRAID OS boot details on my monitor through my AMD Radeon RX 580 despite having video=efifb:off in my linuxsys configuration as follows: kernel /bzimage append pcie_acs_override=downstream isolcpus=6-15,22-31 in
  9. @Leoyzen when you say add pci=noaer , do you mean to the syslinux? did this solve your GPU passthrough issue on your X570 board?
  10. Thanks for the info @johnsanc After long debates with myself and researching boards, I ended up going with the ASRock X570 Taichi as it appears to be more documented on this forum. Plus I got my board for much less than this one. May add a TB3 and 10GBe card down the road however which should make the passthrough a bit easier.
  11. Hi everyone Looking to upgrade my current Unraid server that I have been using for Plex and a MacOS VM. Given the performance on my old 6th gen Intel i5, I’m looking to upgrade to a Ryzen 3rd gen and thinking of getting the ASRock X570 Creator for its 10Gbe Ethernet and Thunderbolt 3. Curious if anyone has tried this motherboard and can report on what worked and want hasn’t in terms of pass through, ideally for MacOS. I would also like to see if someone can provide the IMMO groups. thanks in advance!
  12. Hi everyone, I managed to setup a new VM with High Sierra but seem to be having issues booting now. All my VMs get stuck on the first black screen with the TianoCore logo. Any idea why that would be? I am running 6.4.0_rc14 and everything was working at one point and as I changed something in the EFI and rebooted, this happened. I tried restarting a new VM and creating a new vdisk for High Sierra without success. Here is what is generated in the logs when I start the VM: 2017-11-28 04:33:16.419+0000: Domain id=9 is tainted: high-privileges 2017-11-28 0
  13. Fixed my issue after changing my static IP. Strange but works now. Thanks.
  14. Hi Squid, you are are right, I forgot I had to do this at boot. I have managed to login in GUI mode but it appears to not be connected to not be connect to the network and/or internet despite not showing any noticeable errors. Any idea?
  15. I upgraded to 6.3.5 and have been unable to connect to my server via SSH or via the browser UI with all shares not working. Strangely the only thing that works is my MacOS VM through VGA passthrough that I have setup to automatically launch. I can't do anything else. I can't even see the UI if I plug a monitor to it. Any idea how I can solve this? First upgrade that's gone wrong.
