    No, the 25G is the partition to install macOS.
    I didn't try it with small than 25G.
     
    You can move some data and other app to the other partition, it should give you 25G space, and move back after upgrade.

    Only after Clover r4700.

    I don't understand what you mean?
    Why to use fdisk and dd?

    The script just make installer partition.
    You need to install Clover if you need it.

    Please read Clover topic,  boot0af is used for MBR, not GUID and EFI.

    Check md5 for your Full installer app first.
    You need to follow HowTo, or just use script to make installer.
    Did you follow all the steps from HowTo?
    Which method or script did you use?
     
    Use mouse to find the top side tool bar on the screen of error, Windows -> Log -> Show All Logs, upload the install log to forum to look at solution.

    Just use MBR-EasyInstallerMaker to make installer for Fresh installation on formated blank partition only.

    End of MBR and HFS+, there is no more MBR HFS+ patch available for 10.15.
    APFS only works with GPT.
     
    I can't find any way to patch it with two partitions on 10.15.
    The dirs structure is much different with 10.14.
     
    Maybe, if someone can patch it someday, or not.

    No,
    It just some people still like to use MBR, and MBR can use only HFS+.
    But MBR and HFS+ is no more patch available for Catalina 10.15.

    1.the installer app md5 is not right. installer resources is damaged.
    Check md5, or download the right full installer app again.
     
    2.Didn't find the target partition with /macOS Install Data.
    Use top bar [disk utility app] when you get the error, to make sure the installer can mount target partition right.
    If the target partition is not mounted right, the installer can't find the /macOS Install Data to install macOS.
    Fix it.........by read related topic.....

    I can confirm @crazybirdy's method works perfectly to clean install Catalina DP2 into either an HFS+ or apfs target partition, and avoids creating a separate apfs--Data volume. 
     
    Pictures below are from my tests in a VMware virtual machine...
     
     
    Great work @crazybirdy

    Yes, the security update is just like a version update, it will convert to APFS.
    So,
    I have update script for MBR HFS+, work fine without any issue with both 10.13, 10.14.
     
    That is why i do not see the point, it is not an issue for me.

    Mojave 10.14, doesn't open after osascript execution. I have virtual machine with a version for mojave that i fixed most of the frameworks but it' still not there yet. I did a bit of research and it appears the only way to do it is to mess with DYLD library injection. I had somewhat of a progress and then i got busy with work. I could share that file see if it takes us anywhere. But I am setting up a new machine today with high sierra I will test it further.
     
    As a note, if you try to execute it via terminal:
     
    dyld: Symbol not found: _OBJC_CLASS_$_NSStatusBarWindow
      Referenced from: /Users/...../Desktop/Disk Utility 13.app/Contents/MacOS/DiskUtility
      Expected in: /System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/AppKit
     in /Users/...../Desktop/Disk Utility 13.app/Contents/MacOS/DiskUtility
     
    I followed that chain before and I hit a wall. Thats where the DYLD injection comes in.
     
    Disk Utility Mojave attempt (not functional) - The loader is renamed and the original binary is used while testing.

    All the frameworks are from El Capitan, it seems to be the safest way.

    getting closer, partial success:
     

     
    What I did was, copy the DiskManagement.framework from your Disk Utility for Mojave (not there yet).app into Disk Utility 13 (607).app, overwriting the old one (after backing it up). Obviously the volumes in the side bar on the left are now missing.
     
    I did some testing back and forth of the folders and files inside DiskManagement.framework: the DiskManagement binary is the "do-jobby" here and thus the ONLY culprit file to fix, at least for High Sierrra.
     
    I see both binaries have the exact same byte count, so I compared them with Hex Fiend: there is 66 differences (most just one or a few bytes), which is too much for byte restore debugging.
     
    You apparently have more experience with and a better handle on byte patching, so I'm sure you'll succeed. Getting this to work in High Sierra seems like a good basis for Mojave
     
    GOOD JOB !!!!!

    @Tetonne you are welcome.
    @dimosgmx that's good news. I also got your message but reply here for best exposure and open collaboration.
     
    I have also been debugging via Terminal:
    File: Debug Disk Utility 13 (607).command (attached)
    #!/bin/bash clear echo "Put this script next to Disk Utility 13 (607).app" echo "" cd "$(dirname "$0")" sudo ./"Disk Utility 13 (607).app/Contents/MacOS/loader.sh" with the following results (10.13.6):

    It might be necessary to kill any running default OS process of the same name DU 13 needs to access.
     
    It might also be helpful to run DU13 via terminal debug in Sierra 10.12.6 (I don't have it installed) to see how the messages should look like. But maybe that would be an extra step.
     
    Does anyone know if this got broken from 10.12.6 to 10.13.0, or if it was still running in the initial High Sierra and got broken with a 10.13.x update (as did the diskmanagementd command requiring a killall after the 10.13.4 update)? It would be much easier to debug within a High Sierra update line, just looking at the files of the culprit update.
     
    Good luck! Let me know if I can test anything. I might be a bit unresponsive the next three days, but then things should lighten up a bit.

    Do you (or @dimosgmx etc.?) happen to have any idea which files(s) from Sierra might be needed to revive the file window functions? If we manage to figure that one/ these out, we'll again have a full-fledged DU for High Sierra (and hopefully beyond).
