Hi,

 

I'm trying to install macOS, but when Clover boots there are no available macOS install:

 

missingboot.JPG.11d3d4f45946608c8aeb922e3f3cd99e.JPG

 

Config:


    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='qcow2' cache='writeback'/>
      <source file='/mnt/user/domains/HACKINTOSH/clover.qcow2'/>
      <target dev='hdc' bus='sata'/>
      <boot order='1'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='2'/>
    </disk>
    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback'/>
      <source file='/mnt/user/domains/HACKINTOSH/mojave.img'/>
      <target dev='hdd' bus='sata'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='3'/>
    </disk>
    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback'/>
      <source file='/mnt/user/domains/HACKINTOSH/vdisk3.img'/>
      <target dev='hde' bus='sata'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='4'/>
    </disk>

As I see the config is good.

 Do you have any idea what's wrong?

 Thanks.

I have the same issue. Did you ever figure out the issue/solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated

This guide was super useful, I have my Mojave VM up and running. The only problem is that can’t figure out how to pass through my iPad via usb.  When it’s plugged in, I can pass it through to my Win10 VM,  but everything I tried to get it to show up in Mojave has failed. Any ideas on how to get it to work?

@Jomp Try the "Libvirt Hotplug USB" plugin. In the VM tab you can attach a USB device to a running VM. Works for me with every Phone and Tablet i tested.

I gave that a try and sadly it didn’t work.

Is it possible to make the boot/install media on a Windows machine, for people who don't have easy access to a computer already running Mac?

Install VirtualBox and create a macOS VM. You can skip any special configuration tweaks as the most basic install will give you the App Store. Be prepared for a laggy low rez experience, but at least you'll be able to download clean OS imgs. This was my entry point. There are guides available that will point you to prebuilt VBox images.

@bluntcascade @MasterMark  ***SOLVED*** Was having the same issue, trying to get Mojave, following step by step video, unRaid server has an AMD RYZEN 3 1200 4-Core YD1200BBAEBOX processor with SVM turned on in BIOS. There was no "install macOS" big picture button above the Clover buttons. I believe I found the issue: I didn't let the Disk Creator step entirely finish (there was no blue progress bar, and I quit out before I got the "Creation Completed. Click <OK> to continue" pop-up, so my install media was bunk.

Once I redid that install media in Install Disc Creator, waited for the completion dialog window to pop-up, bing, all working. I verified with High Sierra install, and am going to just go with that one.

 

This also reminds me, I had a bit of a stumbling block at the download Mojave from the app store steps. For some reason, when I did that, I only got a 22.5MB file, who's icon and name was the exact same thing. I ended up using the "macOS Mojave Patcher.dmg" to download the full 6GB "Install macOS Mojave" file.

 

Also short PSA: great everyone is posting css details, but how about using pastebin, or hastebin, to keep the goods more succinct on these long threads? 😉

Why bother with external sites?

**SOLVED**

 

PROBLEM:

CAN NOT resize the disk (High Sierra APFS)

 

found it in:  https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/309115/increase-size-of-apfs-partion-in-high-sierra?noredirect=1&amp;lq=1

 

What I did was:

1. download gparted amd64 ISO ( https://gparted.org/download.php )

2. edit the XML of the VM and add this ISO as a first boot disk. the second priority would be the original OSX disk.

3. change the VM OSX disk in the unraid GUI to the size you want. 

4. boot the VM and it should start the gparted. choose the default parameters presented during the start screens. I used the VNC to watch the process. mouse didnt work so used the keyboard keys.

4. Upon launch gparted will say that GPT uses less space then available and suggest to fix - click the fix button;

5. stop the VM

6 change the XML back to have only one OSX disk to boot from.

7. boot to the OSX.

8. using the terminal : diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk1 0    (disk1 is the same as using disk0s2)

DONE.

 

PROBLEM:

 

CAN NOT resize the disk (High sierra APFS)

changed the disk size in the Unraid VM menu from 50G to 80G

run the command inside the OSX terminal : " diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 0"  with no errors

the APFS disk size remained the same

also run multiple times the shrink command :"diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 53G"  (my disk size is 53.4) and again same command with 0.

tried the same with disk1  (its the identifier of the APFS container when mounted)

Nothing!!!

What is the problem?

I see the bellow :

 

davids-iMac:~ david$ ./driveinfo -rd disk0

  Code       Size            Type       Identifier  Mounted  Name

  ----  --------------  --------------  ----------  -------  ----

                   512     PMBR                                     

                   512     Pri GPT header                           

                16,384    Pri GPT table                            

                 3,072    Free Space

               16,384    Sec GPT table                            

                    512    Sec GPT header
