  • Hi,

    At first I had a hard time installing OS X, so I installed it in a VM on a Mac with VMware Fusion. Then I copied the vm disk on Proxmox. Maybe I could have installed it through Proxmox but I had forgetten that I needed to run this to make OS X boot:

    echo "Y"> /sys/module/kvm/parameters/ignore_msrs

    My config:

    args: -device isa-applesmc,osk="ourhardworkbythesewordsguardedpleasedontsteal(c)AppleComputerInc" -kernel /var/lib/vz/images/101/chameleon_2773_boot -smbios type=2 -readconfig /usr/share/qemu-server/pve-q35-osx.cfg -device usb-mouse -device usb-kbd -machine q35

    cpu: core2duo
