    You're using, right? The version of Clover they've packaged in ESP.qcow2 is too old to boot Big Sur, you need an updated version of it. | 2021-04-29
  • Updating macOS inside KVM (not sure what subreddit is right for this) | 2021-04-28
    Ah yep, that one includes Clover r5070 which I think is too old to boot Big Sur, so needs an update. With macOS-Simple-KVM, Clover is installed onto the disk "ESP.qcow2", which you should be able to upgrade from within the VM using the Clover installer. I'm not a Clover expert though, and can't advise on the best way to achieve that. | 2021-04-28

    You may be able to use a QEMU/KVM VM with passthrough of the USB controller enabled. This is very complicated, although macOS-Simple-KVM makes it much simpler. After making the VM, you will need to run sudo ./ --add. You will need the package virt-manager downloaded from your package manager too. There's a full guide on the README.
  • Problems With MacOS Cross Platform Build | 2021-04-23
    n an attempt to work around and test this without having to send my game files to my friend constantly, I found a macOS VM that I could run from my Linux machine ( While running through the error messages, I found this old forum post and that mentioned using the codesign command. Through these convoluted steps and a custom build workflow, I was able to build the project, sign it with the codesign command on the macOS VM, and send it to my friend.
  • How can i passthrough Intel HD Graphics (integrated graphics) to a kvm? | 2021-04-17
    So, im about to setup a macOS-Simple-KVM, and i need a basic hardware acceleration to the guest system not be so laggy. I dont have a AMD GPU, and i want to use a recent version of MAC OS, so i cant try to passthrought my NVIDIA GPU cause Apple in the newer verions of MAC OS blocked nvidia gpus (high sierra+ i think). So i need to use my nvidia gpu in the host system and passthrough my intel hd graphics (integrated graphics) to the guest system. How can i do that? I would aprecciate any sort of tutorial of this think or any advice. Thank you!
