VirtualBox High-Sierra iCloud fix (iMessage, Facetime, ect)

Hi, I'm totally new here and I really need some information on what I should do to make my virtual machine that runs macOs 10.13 like a real Mac (so I can get Two-Factor Autentification, iMessage and everything). I know this reddit is more for real hackintosh and not really for virtual machines but I only have a laptop and none of my component can work with any kind of tweaks (I already tried many things that never ended up okay) and because I couldn't find any information on how I could do what I want for this vm to work like a real mac, I'm asking here desperately to find someone who can help me with it.. Tell me if I'm doing something wrong on this post or I should give you more information about the setup and every thing.

Clover resolution stuck at 720p after switching from HDMI to DP

Due to problems with a black screen after turning it off and on again a user suggested to switch from HDMI to a DP cable.

The problem with the black screen is vanished. But now the clover boot screen is in 720p max. Prior it was in 4K.

I tried switching clover display settings and disabling CSM in bios, but nothing helped.

Anyone some tips on this? Thank you.

Installing Mojave on HP 8100 Elite SFF

  • CPU: Core i5 660 (Clarkdale)
  • GPU: GeForce GT630 2GB (Kepler)
  • MB: MS-7557 (Intel Q57 Express chipset)

Currently I'm having issues with USB (aka still waiting for root device, can't even get to the installer). Are there any patches available? Or even a proper EFI folder? And no, IOUSBFamily or any other kexts did not help at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

Accidentally deleted hackintosh drive

I feel so dumb and I'm still in shock.

Yesterday I booted into Windows and I wanted to delete a partition from a 500GB drive. Instead I've deleted my entire hackintosh partition (1TB) with most of my data in it.
Since then I haven't touched a thing because I was worried I could make things even worse.

This is how the drive looks now

The hackintosh was installed with Clover and formatted in APFS file system in a NVMe drive. Drive is now Unallocated.

Is there a way to recover any data at all or even better clone the entire drive and recover it completely?
I managed to get a 2TB drive just in case.

I do have a backup with SuperDuper but it's from 7 months ago and there's still a lot of data I would need to recover since then.

I have no idea where to start and I'm ready to pay for methods/app if there's need to.

I've read that EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard could help but in fact I don't know if the Windows version would be able to recover files from an APFS file system.

Catalina Desktop | MSI Z270 Gaming Pro | i7-7700k | GTX1080ti


PROBLEM: Catalina doesn't boot after vanilla install, repeatedly fails Gfx load process.

AIM: ultimately I am trying to build a dual boot win/macos system that can boot into either OS without switching the HDMI cable from IGP to 1080ti port. Realise that this may not be possible, so otherwise a dual boot system where I need to switch the cable manually is also ok.


  • MSI z270 Gaming Pro, i7-7700k, GTX1080ti
  • 32gb RAM
  • 1*256gb M.2 (windows system disk)
  • 1*1tb M.2 (macOS system disk)
  • 1*1tb hard disk (shared data drive)


  • successfully installed vanilla Catalina using Clover installer and a clean Catalina install file from Apple. Monitor plugged into the motherboard and using IGP. Network & iCloud worked fine, audio did not work.
  • after completing the install and before copying the config.plist and kexts to the EFT folder, I tried to clean the config.plist according to the kaby lake instructions here.
  • After cleaning the config.plist the system doesn't boot, and in verbose mode shows an error at this point:

Begin Gfx firmware load process ForceWake Multithread = 0x30002 CONFIG0 (0xD00) = 0x80000000 GT_THREAD_STATUS = 0x400b0000 Doing retry #xx Hash data from ME never returned, status = 1, doing retry 

This is repeated 50 times before the system reboots.

I've attached my config.plist file here and a screenshot of my kexts folder. Would be grateful for any help in fixing this!

Separately, what should I do to get audio to work (Realtex ALC1220 codec) and whether it's possible to get the system to boot from the 1080ti at all.

Best wifi dongle for catalina?

I've recently picked up an XPS 9380 and am wanting to get macOS installed onto it. The WiFi card is unfortunately soldered onto the board, so I'm stuck with using a dongle.

Anyone have any recommendations for a decently priced dongle that works with Catalina.
