  1. I would think it should. I have had audio working on various cards that I had passed to MacOS. Have you tried adding the Voodoo HDA kext? I have used it on hackintosh installs in the past and I believe I had even used it within Unraid for a little while when using an Nvidia card. I also recall something about Nvidia audio drivers, but don't remember the details. Voodoo HDA should work if nothing else will. Just add it to your Clover config.
  2. That's probably a pretty good guess. I would research if that Intel chipset will work with MacOS or not though. If you find that it doesn't, you can always get an addon ASMedia card for $30 or so and pass that through instead. There were a few people having problems passing through USB controllers in the past. One of the problem ones was a Fresco I think. Don't know about Intel, unless the Intel controller uses another chipset for the actual USB controller.
  3. From the Unraid control panel, go to Tools and then select system devices. You'll likely have more than 1 USB controller, but you can't pass the controller that your Unraid USB key is plugged into. I ended up have 3 on my board. 2 controllers the ports on the back panel and front panel header and then there was another USB header plug on the board that was on a 3rd controller. I don't recall immediately, but there is a way to show which controller the USB key is connected to by using the command line with a command. I think Space Invader One has a video about USB controller pass through.
  4. Based on 1812's posts, you should have no problems with the GT730 and Mojave. I had other Nvidia cards working with High Sierra in the past and they worked great, right up to the point where I went to dual screens. Then problems started. I broke down and bought a 580x Radeon card for my Mac VM and have a Nvidia 1080 ti for the Windows VM. This is my daily machine and I use both OSes interchangably all the time and push both of them to the limits, sometimes both at once. I'm running a 10 core i9 7900x. Your quad core should be fine with 4 vCPUs to each vm and split the ram, being sure to
  5. In order to have both operating systems booted and running at the same time, you need to have a GPU for each one. If the iGPU works for Windows and you've ordered a GTX710 for Mojave, you can potentially run both at once if you have enough other resources in the system. I built a machine specifically for running both OSes at once over a year ago that I am using today and love it. Everything depends on the total resources of the machine and what you are trying to do with each operating system. Running both at once gets into passing USB controllers and such so that you can have a keyboar
  6. Sorry, forgot to mention the copying of the EFI folder to the cloned drive. Also, resizing APFS rom within High Sierra is not difficult if you use the GUI Disk Utility. If there is more space on the partition, or in this instance the virtual image, select the partition and enlarge it or set to maximum size. I don't remember the exact terms for everything, but it's really simple. The part that I don't know how to do is resize a VM image in unraid. I know there has to be a way to do it and it's probably not that hard, but why risk messing up your working image of MacOS to resize it if y
  7. I would recommend try without specifying the CPU topology. Find the line in your config file that look like this: <topology sockets='1' cores='2' threads='1'/> And remove it completely. The VM will load without a topology specified as has been confirmed a few times. Optionally, if the above line is how your topology is specified, you could also try it with 1 core and 2 threads, but I really recommend no topology based on 2 cores only. Your experience with NVidia and dual monitors is the same as everyone elses. I am glad to here you got
  8. That's exactly the problem that I was having with my NVidia GTX 960. If both display were connected, it would always kill both displays to solid black. Common problem from what I have read in the hackintosh community. I tried Lilu and NVidiaFixup, unfortunately that didn't solve the problem either. My cards don't have 2 DVI ports though, so I was unable to try that. Mine was a combination of DVI and HDMI or HDMI and Display port or DVI and display port. The display port options never worked right, even with 2 of them. If you got yours working with dual DVI, then awesome and congratu
  9. No, it's not the SMBIOS in gridrunners video. Isn't that a standard, iMac 4,1 or something? 4,1 is old, maybe it was a later one. Don't remember. The only advantage that I know of would be support for new devices and CPUs. I haven't tweaked my CPU settings yet, but this install started out as a bare metal install on the same hardware, following a howto on InsanelyMac. My motherboard has an x299 chipset and I have an i9-7800x CPU. For the bare metal hackintosh install to work correctly and be able to correctly identify the CPU and also handle CPU turbo and clock settings from within High
  10. I can't speak for the 480, but I did finally breakdown and buy a Radeon RX580. Plug 'n Play, no problems whatsoever. Boots with 2 monitors connected, can resize either or both with no flicker or problems. No blanking at any time. I should have done this from the start and saved myself all the futzing around for the last 4 months, but I had 2 extra GTX 960's and thought I could get them to work. For the record, I'm also running an iMac Pro 1,1 SMBIOS. My System is running very very smooth. I added another little item to help performance of High Sierra and Win
  11. 1812, would you be willing to try something out that I just found in a thread on tonymacx86? A guy over there, jgalt184, was having trouble with multiple displays on an NVidia graphics card in his hackintosh and could not get it to boot. He ended up adding NvidiaWeb=YES to the bootflag in the config.plist for Clover and says it started working. I have to assume that a bare metal hackintosh is having the same problems that we are with a vm inside Unraid. Unfortunately, I had given up on my dual display system and have been using my Mackbook Pro for my main Mac desktop again and reconfigure
  12. That's exactly the same problem I had. Being unable to boot with 2 displays connected to 1 card, I tried 2 cards with 1 display each. It loads to the logins screen, then when entering password, it starts to load and then jumps back to the login screen again. If I boot with only 1 display connected to 1 card, login and then connect the 2nd display, it dumps back to the login screen again.
  13. Schlichi, I'm glad you got the 960 card working and are happy with the performance. The 960 does everything I need in OSX and works pretty decent in Windows on games at 1080p with medium to high settings, depending on the game. All, I did find out something interesting today with my OSX vm that I'd like to see if anyone else can confirm similar results. I have all my CPU pinning configured to allow my Mac VM 4 hyper threaded cores, my Win10 vm 4 hyper threaded cores and there are 2 leftover on this 10 core i9 for another vm (runs some backup tasks and an internal DNS
  14. I have a Sonnet card with the FL1100 chipset in my unraid server. This particular one is about 4 years old and only shows up as 1 controller to pass through. I do not have a Supermicro motherboard though so it does not affect me at all. Everything works as it should. All the other USB controllers on my system are ASMedia. The builtin controllers on the motherboard will passthrough just fine and work as expected and then I have an addon PCI-e card that's an ASMedia chipset too for an additional USB-C port. This card works great in either Windows or OSX. I would have
