Stupid question then... I will only be accessing it through a VNC client as the server is way to far from my desktop to run a monitor cable. Will a dedicated GPU still help?

 

Only if you attach a dummy hdmi plug.

I guess I'll have to get a dummy plug and try a dedicated video card I guess. One question though... what is it about MacOS that requires the dedicated video card.? I have a win10 VM that runs just fine without one.

Well at least I know what the problem is and I have a compatible video card from a Hackintosh sytem I had a couple years back.  Time to watch SpaceInvaders video on how to passthrough.

What are compatible GPUs for Catalina? My Nvidia 1050 still not supported, right?

In regards to the CPU, are you sure about AVXas a necessity to run macOS? I’ve read quite often that AVX is necessary (somewhere else, not on this forum), not the newer version. I’m gonna try this out myself soon and will report back, I just thought I might ask first. Still waiting for my motherboard to run a Xeon E5 on, which only support AVX but not AVX2. 

It also looks to me in the XML as if you were only passing the AVX instructions set anyway, not AVX2? I have to admit I haven’t checked the original XML yet, but all of the ones I could find in this topic seem to pass AVX only.

I confirm avx2 is not needed, if you referred to me apologise if I stated different.

I rather referred to the original post, I didn’t really read the last ones / pages. But thanks for the confirmation!

it isn't intended to be virtualized, so it assumes it is running on hardware and some sort of hardware GPU is present, either card/soldered or graphics via cpu. Yes, you can run it in VMware officially from apple, but it's not really built to do that in the same manner as windows.

Hi all 

i wonder if i could tap in to the great minds on the forum. I have a stable running Catalina VM, however i can not get my 5700xt working. I wonder if i have missed something in the XML script below

Maybe its something very simple i have overlooked

So I'm an idiot, and forgot to delete the container after utilizing it.  It was fine for a couple of months, and then somehow it started and ran again (just prior to the update to fix this issue) and overwrote my disks.  Now the thing is, I edited the xml to install everything on an nvme drive I have...

 

So my question is, how do I get it to boot off the proper drive, rather than the newly created drive?

 

~Spritz

 

EDIT - I may have resolved it by removing the install disk that is created, and simply leaving the clover image and then the physical disk.  Anything wrong with my solution?

Hi,

I installed the VM as described, however, on first run I get an error saying "Execution error, Cannot get interface MTU on 'virbr0': No such device".

 

In another Win 10 VM, I also have virbr0 as networking card.

 

Any idea what I can do?

Ok, this one solved itself after I had restarted Unraid.

But now the VM is stuck and just shows the Apple logo when I VNC it. I can't stop it either, when I choose the menu entry, I get the green wheel, after a few seconds the green triangle, all the time saying "started".

Blank screen, booting from GPU

Along with many others, it appears I am having the same issue. 

I have been able to successfully install and run the Catalina VM through VNC, but now I am trying to setup the GPU passthrough and getting just a black screen when it boots.

I have removed the topolgy line from the XML, changed the network access, and made sure to reinsert the script at the bottom of the XML per @SpaceInvaderOne video.
Looking through the forum I can't seem to find any solution that has worked for anyone else, but perhaps I have just overlooked something?

Thanks, got to the next screen which said press enter to boot. Pressed enter and now on the following screen. Been a few minutes and 1 core of the cpu is pegged at 100% but nothings happened so far. How long should it normally take this part or is it frozen?

 

Thanks again, quite new to unraid (just built the server last week) :D

I am unable to get pass  this issue - a black screen after clover boot screen using vnc - with mojave.

I've checked everything and I can't find what the issue might be.

Also,  do we know for certain nvidia cards will not work with mojave.

Same for me, if you have any solution I'll glad to hear.

So when ever you mess with your XML you need to make sure the following are correct/repaired;
- CPU topology
- Network card
- Reinsert <qemu:commandline> XML at the botom
- Update the <OS> section with the custom <loader> and <nvram> (not mentioned in the @SpaceInvaderOne video)
- Add the multifunction tag to the video card and change the function id to 0x1 for the audio component
 

I've only had a 5 second look at your XML but I think you missed the last two. The <OS> changes are needed to avoid a blank screen. Turning multifunction on will prevent video driver and video card audio problems. I've had great success with passing through an RX550 (video and HDMI audio) without any custom changes in Clover.

One thing I would say is that Clover is quite brittle and requires the custom Macinabox ovmf loader and nvram to work. I plan on moving to OpenCore as some point to improve reliability and allow use of the latest q35 machines but that's a project for another day.

hi there i have a similar problem passing through a 5700xt the VM boots but in the logs i get the following errors below

I have been trying for days now and i am sure i have just over looked something in the XML 

 

my xml is as follows

@steveBBB, domain is tainted error can be safely ignored. I just means you're running a configuration or some component that is not officially supported by the maintainers of either KVM or QEMU. That means that if you ever need to contact them to report a bug or get help, you would need to adjust your configuration such that it is purely running their supported code and not "tainted" or they will not try to fix it, because they don't support that use case or component added.

So when ever you mess with your XML you need to make sure the following are correct/repaired;
- CPU topology
- Network card
- Reinsert <qemu:commandline> XML at the botom
- Update the <OS> section with the custom <loader> and <nvram> (not mentioned in the @SpaceInvaderOne video)
- Add the multifunction tag to the video card and change the function id to 0x1 for the audio component
 

I've only had a 5 second look at your XML but I think you missed the last two. The <OS> changes are needed to avoid a blank screen. Turning multifunction on will prevent video driver and video card audio problems. I've had great success with passing through an RX550 (video and HDMI audio) without any custom changes in Clover.

One thing I would say is that Clover is quite brittle and requires the custom Macinabox ovmf loader and nvram to work. I plan on moving to OpenCore as some point to improve reliability and allow use of the latest q35 machines but that's a project for another day.

      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x04' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/>
    </hostdev>

 

Thanks for the advice, I tried adding both, but I'm still having no luck. There's no errors whatsoever, but the screen still just won't load...
