  1. Watercooler: I picked the Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 TR4 because it had the large TR4 surface area and the fans looked pretty cool. This device is heavily flawed though. If you wire it like the drawings show, it will only cool decently when you are running Windows. The software is horrible. The hardware does not remember any fan settings like a Corsair model. It is expensive. I paid $250 U.S. If you go with this unit, you will need to rewire the fans to have the motherboard control them. Also you need to make sure that the motherboard is pumping the unit at 100%. Under Proxmox, you will not be able to change the fan colors without performing some sort of rewiring. I did not bother. Mine defaults to spinning colors and that is good enough for me.
  2. I am using a single MSI Vega64 card in the first slot. I have lilu.kext and whatevergreen.kext installed and I am running OpenCore 0.58 I had to add this line to grub to make the video pass thru: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet iommu=pt amd_iommu=on video=efifb:off" To start my VM, I either need another computer or I set onboot: 1 in my 100.conf file
  3. I am getting the 99 error on my Asrock TRX40 Creator also. I thought it was just me. I get this error approximately every 3rd time I power up. This includes booting with Windows by hitting F11 on startup. To make the error go away, I have to unplug (or power off) the power supply, start the computer, which drains the capacitors, plug in the power supply, and then start again. Everything works great after that. The other issue that I can't seem to solve is Proxmox will only start on HDMI, not DisplayPort.
  4. I am wondering if you have a heat problem with your CPU. My cooler is the Thermaltake Floe Riing 360 TR4, which has issues, especially if you are not running windows. Their software that controls fan speed only runs when Windows is running (and not REAL TIME). You can tell if this is the issue if the FAN speed stays constant. You should hear the FAN speed going up and down as you do different things. My solution was to rewire the fans so that the motherboard controls the fan speed. I still used the Thermaltake controller for powering the LEDs and for visualizing the fan speed when running windows. BE SURE TO CUT THE BLUE WIRE (PWM) GOING TO THE CONTROLLER!!!! We want the motherboard to control the PWM signal. I apologize for my very rough drawings.
  5. Simple directions (hopefully) for installing the shutdown program. 1. Create the directory /var/lib/vz/snippets This is done by typing mkdir /var/lib/vz/snippets 2. Unzip shutdown.out.zip. 3. Copy shutdown.out to /var/lib/vz/snippets Use Filezilla to do this. See previous posts on Filezilla. 4. Type: crontab -e At the bottom of the file that appears, add this line: @reboot /var/lib/vz/snippets/shutdown.out & Be sure to hit return after this line. Save your work by typing CNTL-X. and Y 5. Reboot your machine. 6. After you verify shutdown works, add the following line to your 100.conf file so that the computer will start your VM on power up (after about 1.5 minutes from power up) onboot: 1 Good luck!
  6. I finally got "Shut Down ..." to power down the hardware. I wrote a program to poll the Virtual Machines and if nothing is running, a shutdown command is generated. Included is the source file and the executable (shutdown.out) which uses cron on power up and runs until Shut Down... is selected in the menu bar. /* ######################################################################### # shutdown.c # Powers down your Hackintosh when "Shut Down..." is selected. # # 1. Put this program (shutdown.out) in "/var/lib/vz/snippets" # 2. Set cron to run the shutdown program by typing: # # crontab -e <<<<<<<<< This is used to edit cron jobs # # @reboot /var/lib/vz/snippets/shutdown.out & <<<<<<<<<<< shutdown.out will start on power up # # # -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- # To build this executable, type gcc shutdown.c, then rename a.out to shutdown.out # (Don't forget to copy shutdown.out to /var/lib/vz/snippets) # # Version 1.00000000 Rocket88 5/25/2020 # ############################################################################# */ shutdown.c.zip shutdown.out.zip
  7. After a week of messing around, I finally got my Threadripper 3970x, TRX40 Creator, MSI Radeon Vega 64 to work. I only have one video card. Here are the changes I had to make: /etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet amd_iommu=on textonly video=amdgpu video=efifb:off" <<< I need efifb:off or I get the BAR 0 error. *** Note: My monitor will not show anything past the Ramdisk message with video=efifb:off" set /etc/modprob.d/vlio: # Make vfio-pci a pre-dependency of the usual video modules softdep amdgpu pre: vfio-pci <<< Not sure if this is still needed options vfio-pci ids=1002:687f,1002:aaf8 disable_vga=1 options kvm_amd avic=1 <<< Not sure if this is still needed /etc/pve/qemu-server/101.conf hostpci0: 03:00,pcie=1,x-vga=on,romfile=MSI.RXVega64.8176.170719.rom <<< romfile goes in /usr/share/kvm/ *** Set the boot flag. Without the boot flag set, the display hangs up after the Ramdisk message. I also made the following BIOS changes, and I have not checked yet to see if they are still needed: 1. SR-IOV Support. 2. In bios under Advanced\AMD CBS\NBIO Common Options a. Enable AER Cap b. Enable ACS Enable. (not visible until a. is done) c. Turn on ARI Now when I power up the machine, It jumps to the PROXMOX screen, then I can click on the icon of my MacOS, and then I can boot up my new AMD Macintosh. Things I need to do: 1. Create a hook script for powering down my hardware. For example something that periodically checks to see if the vm is running and if not, send "shutdown -h now" command. 2. Everything else. I have days (weeks) of tinkering to do. Once again I would like to thank all of you for your posts!!!!
  8. Thank you for all of your efforts. I am in the process of getting my AMD 3970x, Asrock TRX40 Creator, MSI Vega 64 running correctly. Currently I am using Opencore 0.57. It works on my 2013 iMac remotely, but GPU pass thru does not work and my pass thru monitor goes blank. It never goes to the login screen. There is much for me to try. For transferring files, I have found that FileZilla works great. You can FTP between your Host and guest computers. https://filezilla-project.org/

    Hello!

    Hello MacOS86.it I am also in the preliminary stages of my next Hackintosh. I am trying to verify that I can bring up Proxmox 6.1 / Catalina on an 2013 27" iMac. I picked this machine because it was sitting around. Proxmox loads just fine, but I have not been able to get my Virtual Machine to boot just yet. Once I get this working, I will order the parts for my 3970x Hackintosh. My current Hackintosh is an i7-6950x / Gigabyte GA-X99 Designare EX that has been running since 2016. I would like to thank fabiosun for all of his hard work. I have been following him for months now.
