Recommended Posts

Anyone had any luck yet? I have been trying but i get a crash almost right after boot. Seems to boot (or crash) real fast however.

I'm in the same situation as you are now - got it to start booting of a osx86 install disc image (won't boot directly of the DVD), but crashes as soon as it gets to the grey screen.

 

I also tried using VMware to do an install and it crashed at the same place so maybe it's not a Parallels specific error. I'm sure somepeople are installing osx86 via VMware so it'll be interesting to see how they're getting it to work.

 

I was hoping Parallels for OSX would have the Parallels Image Tools application so one could boot into their osx86 install, make a disc image, then reboot into windows and just load that disc image. Unfortunetly the Image Tool is not currently implemented in the Parallels OSX beta.

Would be very interesting to see it run under Parallels or Xen and see if it gains any speed. I personally think it's the way to go funther on with OS X under non Mac x86 hardware to get full compatibility.

OSX is not officially supported under vmware either but it works.....I keep toying with parallels and have not made much progress. It seems really speedy up to the point of the crash.

If you have a Windows guest in parallels, run CPU-Z or if you have a linux guest type cat /proc/cpuinfo. I doubt that parallels supports SSE2 because no other 64 bit guest is running. I also tried the deadmoo image (just create a new VM with the same size and exchange the HD files) but it was also not working for me.

In this PDF at page 9 it's written:

http://www.parallels.com/files/upload/Para..._User_Guide.pdf

Parallels Workstation virtualizes a full set of the standard PC hardware including:

CPU: Intel Pentium II or AMD Duron;

Generic motherboard compatible with Intel i815 chipset;

RAM up to 1500 MB;

VGA and SVGA with VESA 3.0 support;

1.44 MB floppy drive (mapped to a physical drive or to an image file);

 

A P2 or Duron haven't SSE2 and can't run OSX86

There's going to be 64-bit guest OS support in next Parallels version. That's gonna be really interesting!

 

Edit:

Refrased so it didn't just sound like I thought it would be great if there where...

the question is when we can get our hands on it and test.

 

What are the specific settings you are using in VMware?

 

I use standard settings with freeBSD as the guest and 512mb ram allocated. Im using the newest version which may make all the difference in the world. 5.5 i think. Slow as all hell but it works.

    • Hello Mald0n:

      Nice to meet you, I have created a post about my problem on High Sierra before and I was redirected to this guide by Allan.

      As mentioned in the post, I was not able to get pass the login screen at initial boot and the system could not shutdown occasionally.

      However I solve the high temperature problem when I replace the clover folder you provide on first post, currently the cpu temperature is around 5x-6x'c after 10 mins up time.

      Attached is the clover folder, ioreg as well as the send me app, thanks for your help!

      p.s. I notice that your clover boot efi is a old traditional grey apple boot logo, Is there a version of modern dark and white logo one that I could replace with? Thank you!

    •   Still garbled sound in earphone. The speaker is loud as previous. louder than 2.9.1   
    • Up for https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/wiki,
    • Has anyone had success/failure with using UPnP working with this Intel Network? I have a onboard Intel I219V2, that is working quite well, except I can't make UPnP work.  It works fine for other devices on my network, and my previous mac Mini.   In fact, I've not been able to get forwarded ports working even if I do them manually.   Any help or pointers towards where to look would be greatly appreciated.     (High Sierra, i7-8700K, ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-G)
    • Hi,  the resoldering complete socket would kill the board totally in couple month (as the guys from super-duper repair shop told me). It's all because of gygabite layered silicon grade. The layers are so thin, that they give 90% chance, that board would work correctly only a couple month until it would die. Even with IR equipment they have, gygabite silicon starting to get micro-bubbly 10-20 C before target desoldering temperature. So they not recommending to do it with this particular z97 lineup.   About pins - they are corrected with a microscope and skilled technician. As they broke right near the start, I won't be able to do it with looking glass I have). He did it quite good, visible that they were repaired, but esthetically looking super good.    As for build and Oz in it.  Current configuration is: Xeon e3 1245v3 CPU Z97hd3 Mobo Msi gtx 1050ti gaming X GF 1) Before pins problem, after I flash anything infused with Oz - it won't work with the graphics card installed. If I pull it out, flash, get bios setting right, boot and reset NVRAM (or clear CMOS, bios setting, NVRAM) than install graphics card - it freezes every boot.   2) If I press the CPU cooler a little bid, just give it a solid push - it kinda boots without a freeze, but not correctly. Bios go flickery.  3) After I pushed CPU couple times, I started to get random BSODS on windows, so I tested RAM. One dim would give me errors. I don't know, is this went after pushed a bid CPU cooler, or it was like that, but using totally different ram would give same freezes with OZ.  4) Tomorrow I would go again to this repair shop, they would try to perform another round of magic tricks. As this mobo work correctly (fully) with windows 10 - they not recommending it for full socket resolder. damaged pins were reserved. Maybe OZ uses them after all, but they were repaired. It's all looking magic, but there is no magic. If swapping not XEON CPU won't help it (but I saw builds with OZ and XEON), then I would search for another board or platform.
