    [pre-release] macOS Catalina

    Hi guys, Not really off-topic since this is the Catalina thread (but maybe not so interesting to everyone), have you guys noticed the new screensaver in Beta 3? Pretty cool in my opinion. Video here.

    @headkaze @nytr0 W/A at https://github.com/acidanthera/OcSupportPkg/commit/5b61c4e7764c873a55da095fb842cbed7773e584 Apple declares dependency on a PLIST-only KEXT, which does not make a whole lot of sense to me.

    @Naki, for some reason, the automated script is not seeing the hidden and locked "macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files" folder (probably a problem with Catalina's new "firmlinks", specific to updating Catalina physical disk partitions containing "--Data" volume). The extra "Data" volume you are seeing when booted into High Sierra or Mojave with Catalina vmdk attached is normal since Catalina splits its System Volume (read only) from its User's Data volume. When booted into Catalina, this Data volume is hidden from the user (but can be seen from terminal with diskutil list command). Here is the upgrade and rescue process from DP2 (build 19A487l) to DP3 (build 19A501i) done manually... I have downloaded the full "Install macOS Catalina Beta.app" from Apple's software catalog with @crazybirdy's downloader script (keep a copy safe eg on 16GB USB drive). The app is directly run while booted into DP2_19A487l and I have chosen to install over the top of the existing macOS_apfs volume (note diskutil list output shows the existence of macOS_apfs--Data volume)... On the first reboot into the second phase install, we are actually booting into the install files which have been placed by the installer in the macOS_apfs--Data volume @/macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files. This is more clearly seen if you have Clover ---> can see the following verbose screens... Note the kp occurs due to "Error unserializing prelink plist" - VMware's firmware is unhappy about the vanilla prelinkedkernel used during the upgrade process. Next, I have attached the Catalina vmdk to my Mojave virtual machine as an extra HD. I have booted into Mojave to "rescue" the Catalina install. I have run the "ShowAllFiles.app" to show the hidden "Locked Files" folder. Note it is located inside the "macOS Install Data" folder on the macOS_apfs--Data volume. In order to replace the prelinkedkernel, we need to take ownership of the "Locked Files" folder. Right click the "Locked Files" folder, click "Get Info", click the arrow next to Sharing & Permissions, click the lock icon and provide your admin password, click the plus button to add yourself to the list of owners and then select "Read & Write" to have custom read/write access privilege... The next steps involve renaming the original prelinkedkernel to prelinkedkernel_orig (in macOS_apfs--Data/macOS Install Data/Locked Files/Boot Files) and then copying the prelinkedkernel from copyprelinkedkernel_19A501i.zip into the same folder. Note the original plk is 26.4MB in size compared to the 16.5MB plk provided. Provide your admin password when Finder asks you... Shutdown the Mojave VM (can also detach the Catalina vmdk now), then restart the Catalina VM. You should now find the upgrade to DP3 proceeds normally...

    yes, this means that we have to port all the kexts we care about to the new model and possibly make some kernel ahcks to still use the older ones

    Hackintool v2.6.9

    Apparently if you run the "Disable Gatekeeper and mount the disk in read/write mode" tool first and then wait a while it will enable you to run "Rebuild KextCache and Repair Permissions". I'm not sure why you have to wait a while first but if we can figure it out I can prompt to do this before rebuilding the kextcache.

    Powerful budget Hackintosh for the living room Components used: MSI B250I Pro Mini-ITX Pentium G4600 Arctic Freezer 33 semi passive CPU cooler ASUS Geforce GT1030 8 GB GSkill DDR4-2133 RAM Samsung 256GB PCIe SSD GMYLE Bluetooth USB Silverstone ITX Case PICO Mini ATX 120W My plan was to build a Hackintosh with the best price-performance-ratio to be used as media player in the living room hooked to the TV. For that use it should be silent, fanless at best. So I decided to go for the Pentium G4600 which offers nearly the same performance as the I3-7100 for a much lower price and the MSI B250I Pro Mini ITX board, the cheapest one with M.2 slots for PCIe and Wifi. The Arctic Freezer 33 is my favourite choice as CPU cooler and I’m using it for all my builds. The fan literally never spins up during usual daily usage. For graphics card the fanless GT1030 is the obvious choice as it delivers the best performance with the lowest possible power consumption. Speaking of power: As the Arctic Freezer is too huge for a standard ATX power supply to fit in an ITX case I go for a PICO Mini ATX adapter that allows up to 120 watts on 16 volts, so a common laptop power supply can be used and of course it runs noiseless as wished. Everything works like a real mac, there are no power management, sleep or wake issues. You can even use your Bluetooth keyboard or mouse to wake it and it will sleep well again. It is not necessary to disable USB power via DSDT. For this build I don’t even bother to compile one. This hasn’t happened for years J Of course the installation needs preparation because the Pentium CPU isn’t supported out of the box. You need to configure your UEFI right and get your config.plist for Clover in order before you can start, otherwise macOS will simply kernel panic. Telling it the other way: there is no post installation action required And for those who are planning to use the Intel HD630 instead of a dedicated graphics card: You can’t. It sounds promising at first to have a macOS supported Intel HD on this chip but it seems as if Intel has just branded it this way and in reality using a different architecture. The best you can achieve is to get into desktop by spoofing a Skylake ID but you won’t get hardware acceleration this way. *For this guide I assume that you already know how to prepare a macOS install drive, how to install Clover bootloader and configure it, mounting your EFI partition and so on. You know: the basic skills. If you don’t you’ll find beginners guides for these tasks on the forum.* *CREDITS: Go to all people involved in the hackintosh community. For this guide I searched and tested for days, finding all the bits needed to complete the installation. If you think one or two of the presented solutions here is based on one of your own unique ideas please feel free to tell me and I will add your name here at once of course.

Other cards may work with AppleALC (tested with GT710 and DVI audio works). Nvidia webdrivers Issues Don’t use the designated webdrivers for 10.13.3! They give you extremely poor OpenCL performance what leads to choppy video playback. Instead use NVDAWebPatcher to patch the webdrivers for 10.13.2 and install them instead. I’m not kidding the 10.13.3 drivers are unusable, this step is mandatory.
