    Apple unveils "macOS Big Sur"

    Hahaha thanks for the clarification Ellybz, I'm sure it's well known to every Californian and a lot of Americans, but the whole world is using MacOS/iOS by now, and it just sounds horrible from an advertising point of view, IMHO. (Btw, I'm living in Mexico, I was suspecting that it would have something to do with California, but really, they're trying too hard to be cool...) Again, thanks for the pointer
  2. @Naki thanks for your comment and interest. My motherboard is a H97 socket with an unlocked (lol...) Haswell CPU. Back in the day I had actually bought the MSI Z97i AC which would've allowed me to overclock the G3258 very impressively. The CPU was a steal back then for the performance it could provide overclocked. Sadly the board arrived malfunctioning and the reseller couldn't stock me another Z97 replacement. I got pretty upset and had to bite the apple ending up with the locked H97 version... The CPU doesn't support VT-d so no reason to go into the BIOS to deactivate it. VT-x is and has been always enabled. I occasionally run tons of different OSes in VMware. From Windows, to almost every Linux distro, to several BSDs...never had an issue. I did have Disable Execute Bit enabled though, which I think to remember causing me issues back when I still built hackintoshes. Disabling it didn't make a difference in this situation though. I also changed C-State from Auto to enabled and disabled HEIST. No change in VMware. I'm kinda disappointed by now. It seems nobody can help me here 'cause nobody's facing a similar issue.

    Apple unveils "macOS Big Sur"

    "Big Sur" ... Really? ... I mean,... really? They should've sticked with OSX version numbering in the first place,...lmfao It's probably an internal joke at headquarters that whoever comes up with the most ridiculous name for the next iteration get's chosen for the actual release candidate... Although I'm long gone from the hackintosh community, I think it's great that ARM is dominating mobile now and coming slowly to desktop too. People are already building rigs with it. It's proven to be a great chipset from what one can read. This will also possibly prevent AMD from becoming the new Intel and just milk the whole market 'cause there's no competition. But seriously,...the names,... Could've called it "Your Mom"...
  4. @flakey Is that on Windows? I can not get this to work neither on Windows nor on Linux. Not with VMWare 14 not with 15, not with MK unlocker or v3.0.3 Which sort of makes me believe that it may be rather some configuration that I'm missing or a bad image or well, I really don't know... What installation media did you use when you first did this? I tried downloading the original Recovery partition as described by @tlac and still so I'm stuck at an instant boot loop.
  5. I tried this following your steps exactly but get a constant boot loop when powering the machine with the converted recovery.vmdk Arch Linux Kernel 5.6.15 Intel G3258 Anniversary Edition (Haswell) dual core 3.2GHz (VT-x enabled) Workstation 15.5.5 build-16285975 unlocker 3.0.3 from the codeload links from the Workstation 15 thread: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/340416-unlocker-vmware-workstation-155/?page=3#comment-2725260 (I commented there as well) Workstation appears to be patched fine, can choose OS 10.16 even gibMacOS downloaded 001-12336 - 10.15.5 macOS Catalina successfully recovery.vmdk got converted successfully created the disk with UEFI, 150GB main hard disk, added a second hard disk using the existing recovery.vmdk, kept formatting, did not add any config options manually It won't even begin to load the bar at all, the apple just appears briefly and then it reboots. The vmware.log just says: 2020-06-08T12:29:04.459-05:00| vcpu-0| W003: DarwinPanic: panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff800d8c2b52): initproc exited -- exit reason namespace 2 subcode 0x4 description: none 2020-06-08T12:29:04.460-05:00| vcpu-0| I005: Chipset: The guest has requested that the virtual machine be hard reset.
  6. So it's several years later, and I tried this again with updated software but with the same effects,...Workstation gets patched but any installation media, even from Apples servers, results in a boot loop. Arch Linux Kernel 5.6.15 Intel G3258 Anniversary Edition (Haswell) dual core 3.2GHz (VT-x enabled) Workstation 15.5.5 build-16285975 unlocker 3.0.3 from the codeload links above Workstation appears to be patched fine. Can choose OS 10.16 even Added smc.version = "0" to the machine's config Used an installation ISO from some guide, and also followed tlac's guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/342603-guide-simple-steps-to-create-macos-installer-for-vmware-on-linux-or-windows/ It won't even begin to load the bar at all, the apple just appears briefly and then it reboots. Anybody experiencing similar issues? From vmware.log: 2020-06-08T12:29:04.459-05:00| vcpu-0| W003: DarwinPanic: panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff800d8c2b52): initproc exited -- exit reason namespace 2 subcode 0x4 description: none 2020-06-08T12:29:04.460-05:00| vcpu-0| I005: Chipset: The guest has requested that the virtual machine be hard reset.
  7. On Arch Linux with Intel CPU. Workstation 14 patched with Unlocker 2.1.1. various configurations tested (smc.version, HW 10, USB 2.0 etc.). Stuck on boot loop with original apple BaseSystem files (10.13). Tried to uninstall and install older versions of Unlocker without luck. Tried to patch the 2.1.1 unlocker with the patch contained in the unofficial 2.0.9 unlocker. No idea where to go from here.
  8. I've got a boot loop as well just my kernel panic message in log is different: vcpu-0| W115: DarwinPanic: panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff801f30fdf0): initproc exited -- exit reason namespace 2 subcode 0x4 description: none This is on Workstation 14 Pro on Arch Linux using an Intel CPU. I converted the BaseSystem.dmg downloaded from the regular catalog (there are two in there?) with dmg2img and then installed qemu and used qemu-img from cli with the exact same command. I used unlocker2.1.1 and could successfully select MacOS as operating system in Workstation. The resulting BaseSystem.vmdk was attached as 2nd disk. Apple on black shows up then immediately reboots.

    OS X El Capitan Test Thread

    After restarting the install for PB3 on PB2 (which I only got to work by placing kexts into L/E), the install itself went fine, but afterwards from now on when booting the loader it takes minutes to complete the process bar and stops when it's full. Even with -x. Verbose stops at "Missing Bluetooth Controller" after throwing a bunch of Sandbox System Policy Deny Errors (which don't seem to affect anything). I can boot into Recovery though (where I can see clearly that the update isn't finished still, since I get the "choose language" screen and in DiskUtility the BaseSystem and folders for the installer are still mounted). Do I have to fix USB necessarily to get this to work like explained by pokenguyen? Update: I got PB3 to boot after disabling the "Security configuration" option in recovery partition. I bet this ain't good practice? Also anybody here who can tell me where I would access this option from inside OS? Cannot find it myself.
  10. I ran into this issue today. I actually suspect that in my case it's a modded AppleHDA.kext making trouble. On PB1 I wanted to use Toleda's RealtekAudio Script for Clover to add Sound but had to use the legacy script and put a modded AppleHDA in S/L/E to get it to work. I would revert the kext to test this further but in the clover shell I cannot access S/L/E (that the effect of the new 10.11 permissions I guess?). Gives me a "Cannot move to or from a read-only File or Directory" Error. I'm reading this thread right now where the solution is copying kexts to L/E. Might this be related? If I want to do that the shell says the destination is read-only...sigh... Guess I have to try to boot into my backup and see things from there? Update: After booting into my backup external drive I could see that AppleHDA was actually already replaced by the updater, so I moved on to putting all injected kexts into L/E on the broken osx install, set rights and ownership, touch and reboot. Voilá. Now USB3.0 is dead like described here but as for this issue at least I'm one step further. Actually installing PB3 now hahaha...Let's see what breaks next! Kudos!
  11. Hey folks, I recently moved to another country and left my workstation where I lived before. For several reasons I'm about to make a new build, this time on a more tight budget. I was first setting up the usual ATX mid tower setup I usually do, but soon realized I won't ever do any SLI/Crossfire or huge HDD setups in the future while being here. This lead me to some pretty nice ITX builds on partpicker and I dig the idea of a small layout for my limited work space. Also I love the minimal looks of the Corsair 250D Mini case. This is not meant for any gaming, pure low profile workstation. I would want to triple boot though. Since it's gonna be budget I wanna base this build on a Pentium G3258 which to me it seems is widely used for OC budget builds for it's great performance/price ratio. Any suggestions on comparable processors I wouldn't mind though. As for the GPU I first thought about a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB SC by EVGA because of it's very low TDP and good price/performance. But it still pushed the overall total too high so I thought maybe a cheap Radeon would fit better for OSX anyways. So I ended up flirting with a R7 250 by MSI. My biggest concern, and reason why I'm writing this, is about competitive alternatives to CPU & GPU and the cooling system for over clocking the Pentium. Also the wifi controller on the MSI Z97I AC motherboard is an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 card. Probably a no-go for OSX? I'm thinking about USB WIFI? I wouldn't mind for one USB less. To boil it down to a short list of components: Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual Core OC Silverstone AR06 40.2 CFM CPU Cooler or Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler MSI Z97I AC Mini ITX G.Skill Ripjaws X 1x8GB (so I could buy another one in some future) MSI Radeon R7 250X 1GB GPU Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD Corsair 250D Mini ITX Tower Case Corsair CX 430W 80+ Semi-Modular ATX PSU I made this list on pcpicker if you want to see parts specs. So regarding my concerns: Do you know if any of this would give me headaches running OSX? (e.g. if I installed an all-in-one water cooler would it be recognized at all by OSX?) Can you think of better alternatives for CPU & GPU? Most mini ITX builds I've seen do use water cooling indeed. Although I've read of enough people who OC well with a heatsink. Do you think the Silverstone would do it? Would you install extra case fans if I went with it? (The case supposedly comes with two from what I read) Thank you for your attention everyone. Any comment is appreciated. Critics won't be flamed. I'm grateful to the community. Kudos Deridjian
