  1. No i didnt but i had never had any issues with the GPU for the last 2 years, so i never thought about it. Hella crash though i to rebuild the hard drive that was kicked out of the array but i got it back working. I was ready to kinda go bear metal as well.
  2. Sad day but i moved my Big Sur VM to bare metal. I had been wanting to play with Manjaro and as much as much rx 570 reboots mac os it would lock up my entire unRAID server when trying to reboot a Manjaro VM. It even took a hard drive offline. I went with a gigabyte arous b450m and a 3600. Since my big sur install was already on a nvme drive it was nothing to get it booted on the amd hardware. Now im dual booting big sur and manjaro, and i can select either OS right from the opencore boot menu.
  3. How does guacamole work thru mobile devices? I use chrome remote desktop thru my android phone and it works well for windows but can be glitchy with my mac os VM.
  4. Be careful with tonymac if you mention VM stuff they might ban you. 🥴
  5. I have never tried that. But adding the vdisk into the VM is the optimal way.
  6. The disk should show but may need to be formatted in disk utility. Show a screenshot of disk utility...
  7. You are doing everything in the VM. Add the bigger vdisk to your xml and then boot the VM. The vdisk will show up as a new disk then clone. I suggest creating a new blank VM with the bigger vdisk then go into that VMs xml and copy the vdisk portion. Copy that into your hackintosh VM xml in the storage/vdisk area. That way you don't mess up the xml guessing paths.
  8. You shouldn't be doing anything with the network if you are cloning the disk. Just clone from vdisk to vdisk.
  9. Never tried it with windows but something like clonezilla could work for windows. I had a old nvme drive laying around so i decided to use it that's the only reason i switched to it. The performance is good but i do not do much but watch videos and movies using the VM. vdisk are still very good with performance and way easier to back. Just decided to give it a try.
  10. I run a Big Sur VM using a passed through nvme drive as my main disk. My EFI sits on a vdisk.
  11. You can clone a live disk using CCC. Even works in Big Sur. I cloned my vdisk to a nvme disk live using CCC...the trial version.
  12. I know CCC works for sure in all version of mac os. You can even use disk utility in recovery in everything but big sur...Restore one disk to another does not seem to work in big sur right now. But CCC is the for sure thing. Add your new big vdisk to your VM template, boot up and run CCC...clone to new disk. Just make sure you copy over your EFI partition just incase. I myself keep EFI on a separate vdisk from my hackintosh vdisk.
  13. I had to clone to a bigger vdisk to get this done. You can use the unRAID GUI to increase the disk but you will just get a bunch of extra unallocated space on the disk. And using Disk utility in to take up the extra space just would now work. It would error out almost every time.
  14. I don't use the app but I do have a Big sur VM with a GPU,usb controllers, keyboard mouse etc passed through and I use just like a full desktop mac.
