  1. Hi all and thanks for this forum ! I have created a VMware VM using VMware Fusion 8 on my MacBook Pro (late 2013) and then I copied it over to Proxmox with encouraging but non functionning results. Here is what I did, and how it failed. 1. Create VM (hdd 40G: disk1.vmdk) using the Mac OS X (Mavericks) recovery tools. 2. The VM boots without problem so I upgraded to Sierra and installed XCode. 3. I copied the disk to my Debian 8/Proxmox 4.3 machine but I couldn't start it. 4. After several attempts, I managed to get it to boot. 4.1 The vmdk file must first be converted from growable to pre-allocated before being copied over. 4.2 On the Proxmox host, I converted it from .vmdk to .qcow2 to support live migration on a cluster. 4.3 I installed a boot loader : enoch_rev2839_boot. 4.4 I played with the .conf file and the pve-q35.cfg file to suppress early errors in the boot process. Unfortunately, it took 30 minutes approx. for the VM to boot on a quad core i5-2410M with 8GB RAM and it kept stuck at the end of the boot process. This was on Proxmox 4.3. I migrated the VM to a quad core i5-5250U with 16GB RAM running Proxmox 4.4. Same .conf, same pve-q35.cfg, enoch_rev2839_boot. Here, it starts booting the same way : it is the Darwin - Enoch boot screen, prompting me to choose from which partition to boot : hd(0,2) (10.12) Macintosh HD hd(0,3) (10.9) Macintosh HD The first one is selected by default, so I just have to press enter. It then displays a screen with 'Proxmox' and 'Press ESC for boot menu' during a few seconds before returning to the Darwin - Enoch boot screen. In the mean time, I found it good to have both Proxmox nodes running the same version so I upgraded 4.3 to 4.4 on the host where the VM booted :-) I then realised that the boot process under 4.4 was not working but it was too late... Any help welcome as usual ! Here is my .conf (I cannot attach it). args: -device ahci,id=ide -device isa-applesmc,osk="ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal©AppleComputerInc" -smbios type=2 -readconfig /usr/share/qemu-server/pve-q35.cfg -machine q35 -kernel /etc/pve/qemu-server/enoch_rev2839_boot bootdisk: ide0 cores: 4 cpu: Penryn ide0: data:101/disk2.qcow2,size=40G ide2: none,media=cdrom memory: 4096 name: OSX net0: e1000-82545em=32:34:66:62:38:64 numa: 0 ostype: other sockets: 1 tablet: 0 vga: std
