Thanks gridrunner for posting new smc_read file. not sure why it won't work for me, I get all the text without the OSK key any ideas of why it won't work for me?

The key is in there I know it's hard to believe but that long single line really is the key.

 

You might want to remove that screenshot

Before I try gong down the GPU passthrough route. Does anyone know how to set the resolution for VNC or splashtop?

 

I tried updating the config.plist file in the EFI partition for Clover but it seemed to make no difference.

 

<key>ScreenResolution</key>

<string>1280x1024</string>

Quick hint, for those using Mac compact keyboards:

 

"4. As it restarts press delete (if using a mac connect a usb keyboard as mac backspace will not work)"

 

Fn-Delete on a Mac keyboard will emit a delete-forward, aka the PC Delete key.

gridrunner what graphic card are you using? I have one sapphire hd 6450 but it seems that is not compatible with uefi. Do you have any special rom?

6.2.1 is OK.. Now back to 6.3.0

 

i tried sierra and el cap with 6.3 and both boot ok for me. But not tried passing through any gpu at the moment.

Thankas for the videos @gridrunner, I have 2 vms up and running thanks to you :)

 

I wondered if it was possible to upgrade to Sierra rather than doing a fresh install?

 

I am stuck with the vm booting into the EFI shell.

 

I can get clover to boot again and see the option to install OSX as a new boot option in clover, but that option will not boot.

 

Is it possible?

Glad they were helpful  :)

If you are upgrading to sierra from elcap  yes its possible . Check peter_sm post earlier in thread http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=51915.msg501680#msg501680

 

The reason you not booting the install/upgrader is probably this. Please check.

 

 <qemu:arg value='-cpu'/>
    <qemu:arg value='core2duo,vendor=GenuineIntel'/>
  </qemu:commandline>
</domain>

 

Your cpu is set for core2duo which is fine for el cap but not sierra.

 

you will need to change it to this

 <qemu:arg value='-cpu'/>
    <qemu:arg value='Penryn,vendor=GenuineIntel'/>
  </qemu:commandline>
</domain>

 

Also when you have upgraded you will need to open the efi partition again then download the files description of the sierra video and use

the efi folder in that instead as that contains a different patched clover for sierra. If you dont do this the machine will not run at full speed.

I think it's the CLOVER that's need to be updated. But it's looks like it's hangs during the identifying of the GPU.

@gridrunner again useful information thanks & @peter_sm

 

I;ve spent the best part of the day getting this to work and upgrading.

 

I have used the Sierra EFI files and am running well, except I am again booting into the efi shell.

 

I have to manually point the shell to the efi file to boot into clover each time, for some reason.

 

It seem to occur when I change your default resolution from 800x600 to 1920x1080.

 

I've setup the same resolution in the ovmf config too, so not sure why its not booting striaght.

 

I have at least un upgraded El Cap to Sierra, thank you.

 

I will listen to your clean install video to see if I have missed a step....

ok i maybe your ovmf nvram file is corrupt.

try this.

 

1. make a new  ovmf linux template virtual machine.

2. name it say "test template"

3. set primary disk location to none.

4. leave everything else as is, but uncheck start vm after creation.

5. click update

 

what this will do is generate a new nvram file. so now goto the vm "test template"

and look for the os tags like below

 

 <os>
    <type arch='x86_64' machine='pc-q35-2.5'>hvm</type>
    <loader readonly='yes' type='pflash'>/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd</loader>
    <nvram>/etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/6d6dda8c-f323-ba22-8ed6-8fe56565dfd1_VARS-pure-efi.fd</nvram>
    <boot dev='hd'/>
  </os>

 

copy that out of your test template then goto the osx vm template and replace the os tag code in that, with what you have just copied from the test template.

 

now go back to your test template and find the line in uuid tags

like this

<uuid>6d6dda8c-f323-ba22-8ed6-8fe56565dfd1</uuid>

 

then use that uuid in the test template copy it and then open osx template and replace the uuid line with that.

 

after you have changed those 2 parts in the xml you can delete the "test template" vm

 

You will have to change the resolution in the ovmf again as the new nvram file will be defualt.

 

Please try that and report back here  :)

@gridrunner makes sense what you have suggested and it worked when I only used the os part of the new test template, I got clover auto loading again.

 

I couldn't use the uuid of the test template until I had delete it, as I got the error of duplicate uuid.

 

Anyway past that and deleted the test and pasted the correct uuid from the test template to the el cap ovmf template.

 

I get the following error when I try start that vm;

 

unable to stat: /etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/a1ffa6bc-4bf9-8a37-f338-aab26fcd906d_VARS-pure-efi.fd: No such file or directory

 

Do I need to do something with test so that it creates the nvram are somehow?

 

Edit:1 OK, so I checked /etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/ and indeed the nvram had not been created, so I created another test with no disk and this time started the vm. The nvram was created, so I am now pasting the new details into the elcap vm xml

 

Edit:2 So the nvram gets deleted with the deletion of the test vm, so then the el cap vm cannot find it. Will copy a version before I delete the test vm template.

 

Edit:3 Ok, so that worked and the vm is booting. Will try changing the resolution next.

 

Thanks for the direction :)

Cool glad you got it working :)

 

I made a script that backs up the nvram and xml of all the vms, for use with squids user script plugin, that you may find useful

in case one gets corrupted again  http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=50416.msg505867#msg505867

Hello, everyone. I was wondering if I could get a little help. I was able to pass-thru my GPU however, I cannot get my keyboard and mouse to pass-thru. I would be very grateful for any suggestion you may have. I hope I have posted the proper information, thanks in advance.

Those entries in the XML should be managed='yes', otherwise they will not be unbound from the host first.

Hello, everyone. I was wondering if I could get a little help. I was able to pass-thru my GPU however, I cannot get my keyboard and mouse to pass-thru. I would be very grateful for any suggestion you may have. I hope I have posted the proper information, thanks in advance.

I cant see anything wrong with your xml.

But i see this line

<kernel>/mnt/disk1/isos/Yosemite/bootr2839</kernel>

 

From this i guess you are using Yosimite yes? I havent used yosimite myself (only el cap and sierra) so this possibly could be why?

What you could try is to convert the vm to ovmf and cover and try with that.

So I'm still struggling with getting my hd7770 GPU passed through to my sierra VM. (Note: It works fine in Windows 10) . I've tried just about everything in this thread, and the best I can get is a pixelated/garbled red screen. It appears to be trying, but something is just not clicking :(.

 

I've been poking around on the internet in the Hackintosh forums, and have come across posts discussing using the verde.kext or modifying the config.plist to include Dashimaki frame buffer support...

 

My OSX experience is extremely limited, and though I can follow directions, I'm really not entirely sure if I'm just wasting time with those 2 suggestions.

 

Any thoughts? Part of me wonders if my card is just not supported, but I keep reading about successful implementations of OSX with an hd7770.

 

Thanks for any insight! :)

I have no experience with that card but have a look at this post here it may be worth a try.

You will have to manually add the kext to the clover folder in the efi partition.  efi/clover/kexts/other

Thanks gridrunner! I'll try that tonight! I appreciate you looking into it for me! I thought I found everything there was on this issue, but I didn't find that thread! :)

 

I tried the verde.kext fix last night that I mentioned previously, but it didn't do anything :(. Though the instructions said to put it in the 10.10 folder... Now I realize those folders must be the osx version, so 10.10 would not have worked for Sierra anyways...

 

A couple of questions: Once I've dumped the kext in the correct efi folder, do I need to do anything else (Run Kext Utility etc etc), or do I just unmount the EFI partition and reboot?

 

Finally, if I update my install, does this need to be repeated again, or will it stick?

 

Thanks so much for the help! I'm so close to getting this working and ditching my bare steel PC and Mac (And justifying the monster server humming away in my basement! ;p)

Yes if you put in the folder thats all you need to do. Most people put the essential kexts in the clover in efi. They should stick there if you reinstall or upgrade.

Some people say that some kexts dont work in clover and they have to put them in /System/Library/Extensions but i have only put mine in clover
