Hello,

I have a Promox working fine with zfs on a iMac. I have a few VM but when I want to install osx-proxmox (https://github.com/luchina-gabriel/OSX-PROXMOX) I can install os x but when I start the vm I get the proxmox screen with 75% of the progress bar and the message "start boot option" below. But it fails to go further.

Something like this

Could you help me ?

Kind regards.
 
Hello Noel,

Thank you for your feedback. I know the nicksherlock website (excellent indeed) and I allready checked his recommanded script to avoid the bootloop but without success. This is why I asked the question here.

Kind regards.
 
How long have you let it sit on the boot screen?

Is your system up-to-date? please update with apt dist-upgrade and post the output of pveversion -v. (We also released PVE 8 today, please update, here is the wiki on how to do that).

Otherwise: after starting the machine, check the journal files to see if it gives anything interesting: journalctl -r

Also, maybe try with a different .iso or version of MacOS, just to see if you can get them to boot
 
I thought so. Those errors are common, afaik. Please see some hackintosh-forum for amd related problems. MacOS will best be used on an Intel CPU, more precicely an intel CPU that has actual MacOS support. Getting things working with AMD will work sometimes, but often it's a hell of mountain to climb. Best advise is to switch to (near-)identical hardware to a real mac and enjoy the easy setup. I tried it multiple times and it just works.

Sorry I got confused. I do have an intel CPU. Specifically, I have 2 Intel Xeon E5-2670
 
I'm having the same problem,Does anyone know the reason? CPU??
