    This guide just reflects my own experience configuring my builds, I have never used a "MacPro trash can definition" so cannot comment on it.

    I do run a build with a Xeon processor and a MacPro5,1 system definition and that works ok.

    Yeah well I meant if you have a Intel Core processor, it will likely fail without the VPS security from Xeons. According to JayMonkey, he said "trash can Mac Pros" (6,1) SMBIOS have VPS on them. That's why I mentioned that

    MacPro5,1 is not a "TrashCan" :

    That distinction belongs to the MacPro6,1 alone :

    Thanks for your suggestion but without further evidence I will not be changing my guide.

    The answer is in the guide.

    That usually means that the config.plist that your are editing is either corrupt or not the one that you are booting with.

    Many thanks P1LGRIM, the guide worked flawless :headbang:(facetime no errors, icloud no errors, app store no errors) for me despite my computer illiteracy ;-) Kudos, OP really delivered! :clap::clap:
    As this is not a help thread, I hope to find at least an answer to which thread would be appropriate for asking for help with messages.app which quits unexpectedly and is so unfortunately unusable. :cry:

    edit: oops - and btw. it's the old rig as described in the sig, but now running on Sierra 10.12.6
