@Imanol, it is a good start
In my opinion better way is to do it with Proxmox.
I started before with @foxlet githube guide, Kholia's guide
Now I am happy with Proxmox..very very fast AMD Hack ever ;)

Gosh I would pay someone to solve this for me. I have

TRX40 Aorus Master
Ryzen 3960x
GSkill Ram 64GB 3600mhz
2 TB solid State
Two Radeon Pro VII cards

I know Morgonaut has it working with OSX but hasn't shared her secret sauce yet. I have been running windows on this set up. Super fast but I hate windows. Anyone cracked this yet? I would seriously PayPal someone some coin to get this going for me. I have a business to run. Thanks all!

There is currently no way to run macOS physically on TRX40. Morgonaut is using a KVM with pass through.

If you want PayPal someone helps people to study how to patch.

Hi everyone. I messaged with Fabiosun about this a couple months ago on another website, and am glad to see this thread on here to follow, as well. I'm getting the same installation issue on an EPYC 7002 build (no chipset) - whether I try Catalina or Mojave with OC or Clover - so perhaps this has more to do with the integrated controllers than Threadripper's TRX40 chipset. I'm not sure what the issue is, but I'm working on it off and on as time allows. Since my SuperMicro MB has a real serial port, I've been recording some of the installation logs, but need a far more detailed kernel dump to help. Hopefully someone solves this problem before too long for all of us. :thumbup:

So to my understanding TR CPU with TRX MOBO are not fully working hackintosh...?

Meanwhile waiting for a new patches "exploit" this way has less problem in some part (ie Adobe suite)

Hi Fabiosun how are you? :) (Insainlymac user)
What i meant was if the process of installation is not via VM like it was mentioned somewhere...if it fully working state i should try it :)
thanks for the youtube channel i will check it!

Hi, when you solve first Proxmox steps you have a real Hack and you can use all functionality (ie Adobe photoshop camera raw I mean)
And pass all your hardware like GPU, disks, USB, acquantia ethernet and so on as a real Mac/hack
performance is the same of a real (hypothetic) hack
5% less in cpu respect to windows system (more in graphics but this is an OSX/AMD problem)
