Can someone give some technical advice about virtualization on this system please? At present I have VT-D disabled as per the guide. sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features yields VT-X support (obviously, since 7940x). If I want to run Windows inside a VM (Parallels or VMWare), do I need to change any specific settings? I am not interested in PCI-E passthrough.
Also, does Parallels or VMWare perform better on an x299 Hackintosh?
I use VMWare, and have for years. I used to use Parallel at a time it was slightly less expensive, however I found it over the years to be slightly less fast and not support new macOS feature as well as VMWare (like internal webcam or audio cards)
Also VMWare exists on all platforms, so I can use the VM I created on Mac on a Linux or Windows box and vice versa.
Additionally, creating a virtual drive that is a real partition is easy to do (need to play with a command line utility).
