  1. Not sure about the specs either, but the strange thing is it runs decently fast even at high resolution 1680x1050 with another OS other than unRAID loaded. Admittedly I have only tried a lightweight linux OS.
  2. It was the resolution. I had to set it pretty low, but the screen updates decently fast now. xrandr -s 1024x768
  3. No. On further investigation the GUI Xorg process is pinned on 100% of one thread of one core whenever anything is clicked. On still further investigation the problem is Firefox. with Firefox closed, it runs fast. Ok I've narrowed it down to the fact that Firefox is using very little memory 0.1%, whereas on my other machine it uses 1.2%. The total memory is the same on both machines. Is there any way to allocate more of the memory pool to Firefox?
  4. I use the unRIAD GUI a lot (the X GUI) Unfortunately it lags with a refresh rate of about 2 frames per second. I'm using the onboard VGA of a Supermicro Motherboard. From the command line xrandr reports a 60hz refresh rate. The xrandr settings I have tried to change do nothing. I don't have a clue. But it's behavior is something like I have seen on a 20 year old video card trying to display a modern scrolling webpage, but this motherboard is recent. I have tried a different monitor and remote KVM through IPMI. cs-diagnostics-20191112-0004.zip
  5. Note the native resolution of your monitor. First boot MacOS and change the clover GUI resolution to the native for your monitor (using clover configurator or whatever way you're comfortable configuring clover. Drop passthrough for now and set up VM to use VNC. Using VNC, press F2 or esc as VM is booting, then when you get the BIOS menu choose (I forget which) and set the resolution to the native for your monitor. Then hit continue. After it boots successfully into the desktop, shut it down. Then passthrough your graphics card and see if it looks right. Boot order can be modified in the boot section of clover configurator on your MacOS desktop, after mounting EFI partition (I think "o") with the configurator.
  6. Check that in Settings > Network, bridging is enabled and the bridge is named br0 and the bridge includes eth0 at least.
  7. If you change the line <source bridge='virbr0'/> to <source bridge='br0'/> The Mac VM should pull an ip address in the range
  8. iMessage, FaceTime and iCloud work for me after following a guide like this one. AirDrop I have read is tricky and you might have to passthrough Wi-Fi or Bluetooth hardware. I don't have Apple Pay or an iPhone/iPad.
  9. It was worth a shot but no, it does not work with any. Also I see this behavior, Macos reporting Cable unplugged. on a brand new install of Catalina using Macinabox with default settings (except using qcow2). Changing virtual network device to e1000-82545em after install. That means it's something about my unRAID configuration (using v6.7.2 and bridging). But it works with High Sierra and Mojave. Seems like a very reproducible bug. EDIT: a New Macinabox install works with e1000-82545em on unRAID v6.8.0 rc5, Tested on two machines, both not working with 6.7.2 and both working with 6.8.0 rc5. My solution: just abandon my old install and use the new Macinabox Catalina install. @glennv What you say is perfectly sensible, but unfortunately I do not have a free PCIe slot. I also tried a USB to Ethernet adapter I had laying around but no success with that.
  10. Same problem here. Must be downloading the wrong recovery img.
  11. What virtual device, e1000e? I will try all.
  12. @bland328 After injecting that kext, networking works great, but there is a process called kernel_task which now has constant 115% CPU usage. Is your VM doing that as well?
