Ah I was hoping people wouldn't post the osk key here in the forum.

There's still an offending post by @rorton on page 1 that needs redacting. You've already asked him to deal with it but I don't think he was listening.

i was wondering if i can do updates and upgrade to macos catalina? 

Try it and report back with your findings. I'm sure a lot of people will be interested. But back up your vdisk first.

how would you do that just copy the file on to my main pc?

Personally, I'd use something like

cp --sparse=always /path/to/original.vdisk /path/to/backup.vdisk

which would keep it as small as possible.

has anyone got imessage and the appstore working? they keep coming up can not connect to apple servers for me

You have to edit the XML and change the network adapter type from 'vmxnet3' to 'e1000-82545em'.
It should look like this:
 

<interface type='bridge'>
    <mac address='53:44:00:57:30:d4'/>
    <source bridge='br0'/>
    <model type='e1000-82545em'/>
</interface>

 

Use 'vmxnet3' for performance or 'e1000-82545em' for compatibility with Apple services.

You will also have to correctly set ROM,MLB and SMBIOS I also had to Custom UUID Inject iD and ExposeSysVariables to get it working finally and its all perfect now. This script from another forum works well to see if anything is missing or wrong

To be honest, I wouldn't bother trying to upgrade from, say Mojave to Catalina. I'd just create a new clean Catalina VM and transfer my applications to it. FWIW I was able to apply the latest security update to High Sierra. I was dubious that it would work since on my real Macs it involved an update to the firmware too so I took a backup of my vdisk first.

Ok so mostly smooth so far but I don't keep my VMs in /mnt/user/domains so i had to do some tweaking.

I'm sure I've mucked something up now in the works but cannot figure it out.

 

Anyone care to take a look?

 

This is where it gets stuck now...

Is that the first reboot after the installation or have you got past the point where you choose your language, region and set up a user account? If the latter then what customisation have you done to the EFI partition? It might be worth waiting for SpaceInvaderOne to upload his tutorial before proceeding.

@CorneliousJD you need to make sure the ovmf files path match the file path that's on your server. The container uses a specific version of ovmf files to work. Look in the folder where the Mac vdisk are contained.

 

 

type='pflash'>/usr/share/qemu/ovmf-x64/OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd</loader> <nvram>/etc/libvirt/qemu/nvram/427e2dee-2768-4ceb-90d7-29da86721f8d_VARS-pure-efi.fd</nvram>

 

These lines should have a different path.

Has anyone figured out how to get around the "can't use Cache Control on a virtual Mac" issue? The icon in Sharing is greyed out (in Mojave and Catalina at least), and this seems to be a known issue with virtualized Macs. Wondering if this is something that has an answer?

Good afternoon all,

I have been trying to use this container for the past day or two and I consistently get the same thing in the log file. Any idea what I need to do to remedy the situation?

Great guide! Although I am having difficulties booting up from Clover. While everything else seems to be working just fine, I am facing this issue when pressing "Enter" in the Clover menu. After pressing the "Enter"-button, the screen turns black. I've then tried different approaches, which didn't solve the issue.

 

I've commented the same scenario in the YouTube comment section, and others are experiencing the same issue.

 

Is it possible that anyone has a clue to what I could've done wrong, or what I could try out? I am new in the unraid world, so excuse me in advance for being kind of a noob.

Ah whoops, that must have gotten overwritten somehow when I was tweaking stuff via the GUI, good catch! Updated and it seems to be displaying better but still getting stuck here:
