Apologies if this has been answered, every time I search I get a timeout on the site and I can't seem to get the search to work
I've been sitting pretty with Yosemite for a while , but a recent hardware upgrade (Audio interface) means I can jump from Yosemite.
I've successfully upgraded Clover, then the OS and for the most of it, it seems great. Everything works but the Graphics Driver (NVidia GeForce GTX670.)
I can only boot into Mac if disable the NVIDIA drivers with the boot flag nv_disable=1 however that's not great I end up with one monitor working at 1024 x 768.
I've updated the NVIDIA web drivers to the latest my build of sierra can take.
I have the boot flag for web driver to be enabled (can't remember off the top of my head.. I'm on the work pc, soon to be home)
Any ideas would be grateful, I spent much of last night and morning on this.
UPDATE: I've managed to load successfully, between a combination of changing the SMBIOS to MacBook 14,2 and loading lilukext with NVIDIAgraphicsfixer.
Everything is the same as Yosemite, except I do not have HDMI audio or onboard sound. I do have a dedicated audio interface so I'm not at a true loss.
I have been working to move my Late 2009 Xserve MacOS Server onto Ubuntu 18.04 LTS QEMU/KVM based virtual machine using OVMF and Clover.
After much effort and testing based on the following information from: Kraxel's, Kholia, Gordon Turner and Clover site:
I have now managed to get OVMF/Clover boot and install of MacOS Sierra.
I started with Ubuntu 16.04 initially but this required download and compile of QEMU to get update of machines to: pc-q35-2.9 or better, so I moved to Ubuntu 18.04, which has pc-q35.2.11 available as standard.
So I am now working with standard Ubuntu 18.04 LTS based systems with following packages: kvm/qemu/libvirt/bridge-utils/ovmf/virt-manager
As I want to use PCIe Passthrough for a number of PCIe card currently installed in the server (SmallTree 10GbE & Areca ARC-1883 SAS RAID) I set up my machine with linux kernel boot configuration (/etc/default/grub) of:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="iommu=1 intel_iommu=on" (as my machine is intel VT-d based HW virtualisation)
This resulted in creation of a number of iommu groups (see /sys/kernel/iommu_group directory for this and this posting for information: https://forum.level1techs.com/t/ubuntu-17-04-vfio-pcie-passthrough-kernel-update-4-14-rc1/119639 , noting that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS has kernel version: 4.15.0-22-generic so there is no need to do kernel update for iommu to work).
Using bare minimal Clover config.plist:
And following Clover UEFI drivers:
I can boot MacOS, but it is very very slow... it sits on the apple boot logo for over a minutes before finally moving onto the progress bar.
The other problem I have is that no PCI or Network devices appear in the "About This Mac" System Information Report and I cannot get any network connectivity from bridged E1000 network device.
Here is my virtlib.xml dump for the virtual machine:
Can any one advise of whether I need to update the CLOVER config.plist to add extra items in to allow network and PCI Passthrough to work.

***Update bios to last available version!***
If you need a full patched DSDT...
-Extract tables with F4 key in Clover boot screen!
-Run it and send me files!
--Create a bootable copy of macOS Sierra
Check out the link
--Create a bootable copy of macOS HighSierra
Check out the link
--Install Clover in USB stick
--Replace with my Clover folder
--Install Sierra/High Sierra and boot into system!
--Install Clover and replace with my folder
CLOVER Post Install.zip
--Reboot and activate video!
Now you need a fine tune! DSDT time!
-FIX ERRORS AND WARNINGS
-XXXX to HDEF
- 1 Generation Intel Processors, use Generate P and C States in config.plist
- 2 and 3 Generations Intel Processors, Generate SSDT with Piker script and drop CpuPm and Cpu0Ist SSDTs
- 4 Generation+ Intel Processors, use PluginType=1 in DSDT, SSDT or Clover config.plist
for check Power, Frequency, Temperature and Utilization, use it
Install Intel Power Gadget.pkg.zip
Install .app, select the required permission and reboot. Work in F1 / F2 keys!
*in some cases .app don't work, check patches in config.plist inside Clover folder Post Install
