    Catalina on MBR HFS+

    Catalina works either on Apfs or Mbr Hfs+. And this is good thing, because i use Clover or better Enoch to boot my old rig. If it doesn't works for someone it doesn't mean that it doesn't work at all. "The way of lighting is full of tries and errors" That said @Pinarek The error seems to be related to the lack of read and write permission on hfs+ drive. I can confirm if SO is well installed, Catalina can run well on hfs+. I can install and remove any app, kext or patch i want...

    How to run faster Catilina beta ?

    Hi, thanks for the hint, but ... I have an 512Gb SSD , i use it on external USb3 case to make experiments. My effort is to run well on Hdisk. ( i have installed on Sata Hdisk from Lion - Mojave and are all fine tuned to give full max speed on old Hw) This is why i have installed Catalina on MBR HFS+. It's a beta and probably almost buggy , but i like to find out how to give it better ... For the moment, on Sata Hdisk Cat is slower than Mojave See Ya
  5. Working in Progress I want that my Catalina runs smooth I run Catalina beta on MBr HFS+ (only one partition) So what we can do ? 0. I have gained my Intel HD3000 QE/CI working - i have used Intel HD3000 High Sierra Kexts Done 1. Reduce size - I have used monolingual and I have deleted all unwanted languages - i have deleted unwanted Speech voices - i have delete unwanted Fonts ( Japanese , Chinese, Emoji ...) - i have delete unwanted Templates ( again speech voices) My Cat OS have been shrinked from 16 Gb to 9,96 Gb Done 2. Disable all unwanted Deamons and Agents - I'm looking for disable all Debug deamons or Agents running which are slowing my Os Still seeking .... What's else ?

    Catalina on MBR HFS+

    Basically now to get Catalina on HFS+ all must be done by copying manually from 2 Apfs installated partitions to a newly created Mbr HFS+ partition. BTW We have to: 1. Create installmedia USB 2. Use Clover 3. Install on Apfs CAT volume 4. Boot again on USB 5. Using terminal, type ditto /Volumes/CAT/ /Volumes/HFS/ ditto /Volumes/CAT\ - \Data/ /Volumes/HFS 6. Boot HFS in single user mode 7. Mount RW /sbin/mount - uw / 8. Recreate cache update_dyld_shared_cache - force kextcache - system-prelinked-kernel 9. Reboot in HFS and finish installation. 10. That's all... Or wait for the tool which CrayBirdy is working on to make all easy and errors proof... See Ya

  13. You need to boot with Clover and FakeCPUID option set . I.e FakeCPUID=0x0306A0 because your intel Pentium G3250 is not recognized by OSX/macOS sent from my iPhone

  18. Well, macOS Mojave doesn't install on MBR/HFS+ partition / Enoch boot loader So i just found a workaround .... 1) Create USB pen with Clover sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/OSX --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.14\ Beta.app --nointeraction USB pen formatted in GUID /HFS+ and Clover vers.4515 2) Install on another 32 USB pen USB pen formatted in GUID /APFS reinstall Clover vers.4515 3) Clone Live Mojave installed USB on MBR/HFs+ partition Yeap, Carbon Copy Cloner vers 4.x and 5.x don't copy System files from APFS to HFS+ So, Damn it How i can accomplish this task ??? Easy, i have used an old version of Carbon Copy Cloner version. 3.4.1. Sometimes old stuff are still useful ... Cheers

    OSX Lion on Dell Optiplex 760

    Hi, First, in SL , extract DSDT with MaciASL and post here. I will try to compile it and fix errors if there was any... Then try to use smbios.plist iMac10,1 i post to you. ( It is better for your HW) Insert in /Extra folder of USB Lion installer Put ElliotForceLegacyRTC.kext in /Extra/Extensions to avoid RTC Bios reset error Try to install/upgrade OSX Lion over Snow Lion ( beware that if something went wrong you have to reinstall SL) Tell us if you got success to install and run Lion.

    OSX Lion on Dell Optiplex 760

    HI, OS X upgrades are free, so don't have to pay any more. First you have a working OS with a working Eterneth connection and a good smbios.plist iMac10,1 is a good choice. you can use Chameleon Wizard to create it. or use the one here.smbios.plist Then we can fix video card, i have some ideas how to get graphics acceleration QE/CI. Hint : Use MaciASL to extract and compile DSDT.aml for your HW .
