  1. What exactly are we looking for when we run this command? Are we looking for the partition that lists "disk image"? I am thinking of making a python program that can automate this on Linux, but I need to know the takeaway from running this command.
  2. Seeing that this is based on the QEMU display, this should also work on plain QEMU, right?
  3. You must always set the CPU to Penryn; otherwise, Clover won't work. Also, make sure you are using the premade Clover image and OVMF_CODE file from the OSX-KVM place. There are issues with the recent version of Clover and OVMF that prevent you from booting a Hackintosh install on qemu. You probably need to using modprobe to load the vfio-pci driver and manually bind the GPU to VFIO: Source: https://arseniyshestakov.com/2016/03/31/how-to-pass-gpu-to-vm-and-back-without-x-restart/
  4. I know with the Ryzen processor, you don't even need a custom kernel since the VM is mimicking an Intel processor. I am not sure if the same is true for FX though.
  5. I am trying to get my MacOS (High Serria) virtual machine to communicate with my host (Fedora 27) on an isolated network bridge. The VM runs on a QEMU, and I created an isolated network bridge on Linux using Virt Manager. Normally, there are two networks that are connected to the VM, the public network (where the VM can see other local devices and access the network on the internet) and an isolated network (where my guests and host can communicate between each other but can't see anything else). If I try to access my Mac VM through the public network, it works just fine. However, when I try with the isolated network, it never works. I even tried to make the public network inactive to see if I can force MacOS to use the isolated network, but that didn't help. I was able to get a Linux/Windows guest VM to communicate between the isolated bridge, but for some reason, I just can't figure out why it is not working on MacOS. Attached below is a picture of how I configured the Isolated Network on MacOS:
  6. This is one of the changes I had to do to my hackintosh config. Since my school only support Wifi I had to fall back to using `-netdev user`. So as a result, my host and guest can't see each other. When my desktop was at home, it was actually connected to a bridge. Oh, so a mask like this, would be 32, would be 17, but something like would be invalid. Virtualization has got me rather curious about networking. It definitely would be best for me to study the foundations of networking. I am going to look up some tutorial on networking and doing Linux bridges on my next break.
  7. Have you tried set up MacOS in a pure UEFI environment? Maybe what you are experiencing is the dreaded VGA arbitration issue that happens when you are passingthrough a GPU to a non-uefi VM. I could be wrong though.
  8. I will admit that this is the first time I actually dug into networking. So I don't actually know the terminology that well currently. Note: I had to move my computer to the dorms. So I had to make some changes to my qemu script. Interesting enough, macOS states that Isolated Network is not connected. I hope this information is helpful, unlike my last reply. Linux host: 1) Public interface: 2) Private interface: 3) Default gateway: # This is what `route -n` told. I never actually created a gateway IP for the bridge Mac VM: 1) Public interface: / ?? # Wasn't sure how to get the other part on macOS... 2) Private interface: /24 # That is what it is supposed to be, but `ifconfig` doesn't acknowledge it. 3) Default gateway: ??? # Doesn't list it on the Isolated network, but the public network's gateway is Is the reason why my Mac VM and Linux Host can't communicate with each other have to do with the fact that the gateway IP address has not been set? I can also provide ifconfig for both Linux and Mac if you like.
  9. The subnet mask for the public network is For the IP settings, do you want me to show you the setting I used on my Windows/Linux VM, or do you want me to show set up the Public Network on my Mac VM?
  10. I remember asking someone about this before, it doesn't seem like Nvidia does any check on MacOS, only on Windows VM (and maybe Linux VM too, not sure tbh)

    Discard/TRIM on QEMU (Sierra)

    There is a command on Terminal to force MacOS to enable trim: sudo trimforce enable Source: http://ntfs-formac.com/enable-trim-third-party-ssds-macos-sierra-trimforce/
