  • Can i safely update the os?
    1 project | reddit.com/r/macOSVMs | 31 Jul 2022

  • I need a clue how to make my mac os vm perfect
    1 project | reddit.com/r/VFIO | 28 Jul 2022
    It's almost there. I followed kholia/OSX-KVM readme, and got it running. Everything works, wifi, airdrop, even imessage, bluetooth, gpu (rx5700), usb (all passed through). If anyone is interested how I did it or needs some help, I will gladly answer any questions. So, my problem is that I've recently bought a displayport/kvm switch from aliexpress to make things even easier. Now, it'd take only one push of a button to switch both display and usbs between linux and mac os. And that kinda works. The caveat is, that I need to switch the kvm to mac os whenever I start my vm. Otherwise it wouldn't boot. I assume that mac os won't boot without detecting a display. Is there any way to fake the display (i.e. to make mac os think it's connected while it actually is not)?
  • Bare Metal vs Virtualization dual boot
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/hackintosh | 27 Jul 2022
    The mid/hard way would be to have a powerful PC like I did recently, switch to Linux as the host, and use it as your main OS and then for specific stuff, turn on the Windows or OSX machines. The problem here is that you have to deal with Linux and its quirks... editing files with the terminal, sudo, setting up QEMU, editing the libvirt XML files (or create your own bash scripts for QEMU) and so on... It feels like a hassle sometimes, and getting OSX to work in a virtual environment is a hit or miss - there's a few projects out there that can help) but then getting them to work is like running a command and having it contained in its own "window" and you can also share files between the host and the VM almost seamlessly.

    Good measure, really. Just to be extra-sure that my GPU doesn't accidentally get claimed by the Linux host. I started off blindly following the instructions in this repo and decided to keep it. I've tried with the drivers not explicitly blacklisted and with a rebuilt initramfs which made no difference.

    I'm trying to passthrough my discrete AMD Radeon 530 to a macOS KVM. I know that my GPU is crappy but that is what I currently have. I've set up the VM itself smoothly on Ubuntu 22.04 using this awesome work OSX-KVM. And followed this tutorial for the GPU passthrough from the same repository.

  • MacOS KVM passthrough failed to load boot

    Hi! My macOS passthrough KVM (from this repo) failes to boot on startup. First it tries to load Boot1 but fails and after that it tries to load boot0002.It says "starting boot2" and freezes on that.Pic here .Before i had it setup with virt-manager and had no passthrough it launched normally without any issues. I reinstalled and im still having the same issue. Here is my libvertd.log and my macOS.log. I am pretty new to vms so if u think that i missed some info just say what else i should include in the comments
