    [Release] macOS Catalina 10.15.1

    Adding EC seems to have fixed it and I’ve been able to complete the install. Thank you. seem to have a secondary issue that occasionally the system locks up during normal usage. Screen visible (but can’t tell if anything was still active), but keyboard, mouse don’t do anything. Not sure what the cause for that is yet. Didn’t happen before in either 10.13 or 10.14

    [Release] macOS Catalina 10.15.1

    Having issues upgrading from a working Mojave install to Catalina. During the first stage of the booting the installer all the USB ports stop working. The progress bar continues to move but very slowly with no time below it. turning verbose on it is sitting doing nothing after printing apfs_module_start:1683: load: com.apple.filesystem.apfs, v1412.41.1, apfs-1412.41.1, 2019/10/21
  3. Thanks for the confirmation, dang. I wonder what is up with that. I know on the Macrumors unsupported Macs there has been some recent mention of Catalina misreporting download speeds, (although it looks like it might be for certain wifi cards) but for you and me it is actually downloading slower.
  4. And that was the bit I was forgetting. Thank you. As I say its been a long time since I've done an OS update on the Hackintosh, so I'd forgotten I needed to manually switch to the installer volume. I have just gone through setting up the Hack to use the iGPU rather than the Nvidia card and that is all working. So I hope I'm all set to update to either 10.14.6 or 10.15.0 DP7
  5. I hadn't touched my Hack in a while and realised it was still on 10.13.4. I've tried 3 times now to update to 10.13.6 but it keeps failing and I don't know why. From the looks of the syslog it compete okay, what am I missing?

  6. @fusion71au thanks for the prelinkedkernel for DP7. Worked a treat, VM successfully updated.
  7. Thanks @Naki and @fusion71au Have DP6 now up and running. Booted into the Installer ISO again, touched the extensions directory and ran the kextcache command, rebooted and created the user. Looking good so far, redraw of Safari tabs isn't great and download speeds are about 1/5-1/6 my normal speeds (getting 1.7-2.1MB/s rather than 10-13MB/s). Thank you both for your help!
  8. Noted @Naki but there was a DP6 patch on the aforementioned post that I used to generate the ISO. "macOS_iso_creator_19A536g.zip" for DP6 and that's what I used earlier and am redownloading now to try again. (I wiped the DMG thinking I didn't need it anymore and in the hopes of reclaiming space … that was for nought. There appears to be no way to compact a VMware-Player 15 macOS Guest. Tried Zeroing in OSX, and then using the Compact UI in VMware-Player, but no dice. OS Using 12GB, VMDK file is currently 42GB)
  9. Was pointed to ask in here. I was following @fusion71au's steps laid out in this post. The difference is I am using Windows 10x64, VMWare-Player 15.1.0, patched with Unlocker 3.0.2. I was able to use Mojave earlier today without issue and built the Catalina DP6 iso in that OS. Using the aforementioned steps (with the pregenerated vmdk and also with a empty vmdk), I get to Step 5 and the system just sits with an Apple Logo and no progress. If I reboot and smack the F2 key to get to Clover and select either Preboot or Boot macOS then I get a Memory Panic. If I don't smack F2 and just let it boot normally, it sits on the Apple logo doing nothing, with no activity shown in Windows Task Manager. If I set the Guest Type to Windows 10x64 and reboot then the installation process continues and I can select Country, Input Languages, Network Configuration, user details However when I go to enter the Network Configuration details I find that the keyboard has stopped working but the mouse continues fine (Have tried both a USB 2 and USB 3 socket for the keyboard). I have tried using Safe Mode as a option to clover with no success. At this point am I better off trying an upgrade of 10.14.6? Anyone have any thoughts?
  10. @Naki I was asking in this thread because I was following the steps in this thread, but I will try in the thread you suggest as well.
  11. For this phase, if I just used an VMWare generated vmdk (using VMWare Player 15), would you expect it to sit for a long time at the Apple Logo at this stage? Or do I have to use your prebuilt vmdk file with Clover? TaskManager suggests the Player isn't doing anything CPU or Disk wise. -- EDIT Interesting. This was the point that I had to swap the guest type to use Windows 10x64 to see the clover loader. Choosing either the first or the third Catalina option completed the cache rebuild and get to the point of completing installation. However while my mouse worked fine, my keyboard didn't. Which meant I couldn't enter network details or enter my new user. Also the first time I did this Setup Assistant crashed.
  12. @fusion71au apologies for interrupting, but is it better to run OSX in VirtualBox or VMware Player on Windows? Is one faster than the other?
  13. Thank you both for this post and the files. I knew I should have checked this forum first. Just finished using a guide on Wikigain, mostly so I could make the Catalina iso. I was going to use the guide on https://techsviewer.com/install-macos-10-15-catalina-on-virtualbox-on-windows-pc/ to install Catalina in the morning, but their guide has you setting the VM info to use iMac11,3 rather than 14,2 so thank you for that heads up. I will give the posts from here a go in the morning. Thank you again for the effort

    Updated information Nvidia For Mojave

    Say what now? A weird spam post? (Gutted there is still no driver support for Mojave)
  15. Apologies. Upload to Google Drive? Dropbox? Possibly email it to me (I believe its set to received up to 100mb files, need to verify) and I can put it on my webserver.
