  1. Hey @david279 or anybody. I have been using a MacoS VM as my daily driver for 2 years now and have gone through 4 or 5 versions of MacOS starting with Yosemite I believe. Through several versions of Clover and and even QEMU/Libvirt/OVMF. Maybe every 5th time or so, the VM will crash immediately on showing the apple logo on boot. This has happened through all these iterations. It's not critical. Really just an annoyance. Lately, with Catalina-Beta on start it bootloops 2 or 3 times before it "catches." Does that happen to you guys? I haven't read anywhere about this being common.
  2. I use Sabrent USB External Stereo Sound Adapter for Windows and Mac. Plug and play No drivers Needed. (AU-MMSA). Plugged into a passed through USB3 controller. Also just works.
  3. You can just make a backup of your vdisk and try it. It worked for me. That is how I got from HS to Mojave. When a new MacOS comes out sometimes I upgrade in-place and sometimes I do a clean install, whatever I feel like.
  4. When I read your post I decided to try it. I passed through two GPU's to the same Windows 10 VM. I did not test it extensively, but it seems to work. I was able to extend the desktop across two monitors and everything. Maybe if I get a chance I will try in on MacOS. Edit: Just tried it on MacOS. Same result. It works.
  5. Seems like it's got to be one of a few things-- Your OVMF files, your Clover version or drivers, disk setup in the XML, or malformed .img file. Hmm. you could try attaching a known good vdisk i.e. from a Windows or Linux VM to the MacOS VM (make a backup first) as a test to see if Clover can detect anything at all.
  6. At the very end of the XML. It's for when you use a QEMU emulated CPU like the OP. Yours should be Penryn if you're running MacOS in a VM. What OS are you trying to run in your VM? And what guest within that guest are you trying to run? And with what Virtualization software (within the VM)?
  7. It works. At first it did not work, but when I upgraded to Catalina-Beta 5 it started working.
  8. I have tried it. I put the main graphics card on another, removable GPU in the bios of he computer, and gave it a go. It works fine for my Libre Elec VM. No reset problems or anything. All other VM's -- MacOS, Windows, BSD, Ubuntu give a black screen for me. Libre Elec is primarily made for Intel graphics because it is geared toward installing on NUC type tiny form factor devices. Maybe it boils down to drivers. As far as the state of iGPU passthrough in UnRAID. There is a blog post on this topic:
  9. It's pretty easy. #!/bin/bash virsh stop <windows vm name> sleep 10 virsh start <macos vm name>
  10. Just adding +vmx to the cpu features supported worked for me with a nested guest on a MacOS VM. Like this: <qemu:commandline> <qemu:arg value='-cpu'/> <qemu:arg value='Penryn,vendor=GenuineIntel,kvm=on,+invtsc,vmware-cpuid-freq=on,+vmx'/> </qemu:commandline>
  11. Use <model type='e1000'/> in your xml.
  12. Do you still have your lag/freeze issue when you are not using any kind of remote desktop software? Testing with passthrough would eliminate that variable.
  13. I'm really interested. How is it you have that working on a passthrough hackintosh?
