  1. Do this on shell. bcfg boot dump, hit enter and take note how many entries you have, then fs1: enter and type bcfg boot addp highest number + 1 System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi "macOS Catalina" if is there it will tell you boot entry added, if is not it will tell you invalid name or something, then probe with fs2 an so on until you found witch is ( pressing the up arrow will give you your enter and with the left arrow yo can go and change fs1 to fs2 and so on, so you don't have to type the whole command again) remember to move the entry to the first to boot automatically to Catalina, the command is bcfg boot mv number of your entry space 1, lets say your entry is two you then do bcfg boot mv 2 1. About the USB ports, macmini8,1 have no limit in them so check all are connected and reboot.
  2. Nothing special? not everybody have a real mac with Intel HD 4000.
  3. Could you explain how you did to make it work?
  4. Okay here is a short way to install Catalina on this board as promised. 1.- Install a compatible video card, Catalina won't boot with the internal, remember that Nvidia don't have drivers for it. THIS IS A MUST! ( this apply to Mojave also) 2.- Would be a good idea to have only the drive where you are going to install Catalina and you must install it to sata 0. 3.- Flash the mobo with the ROM provided here. ( The Ozmosis Defaults in it is the original macpro3,1, you must replace it with a Defaults.plist actualized, IMac13,2 or Macmini8,1 are the best, I prefer Macmini8,1 because it don't have limitations on usb, you could do this on the ROM or in the EFI folder. This ROM have kernexpatcher included, you don't need to install it on EFI. 4.- You must install WhateverGreen.kext and Lilu.kext on the EFI\Oz\Darwin\Extension\Common folder, you can do this from the Shell or attaching the drive to a existing Mac system and opening the EFI folder there. 5.- Reload the NVRAM doing a CTL+OPT+P+R. Go to settings and choose PEG as video default IPEG could be automatic or disabled. 6.- Install Catalina ( always use the last release ) 7.- Probably between reboots installing you are going to need to boot from the Shell to the macOS Install Data, the command is as follow "macOS Install Data\Locked Files\Boot Files\boot.efi" ( you can add -v after the quotation mark if you want verbose ) Sometimes the installation of Catalina mess with the NVRAM, if so reload the NVRAM and reboot. Enjoy. Whatever Green and Lilu.zip Ozmosis-Catalina.rom.zip
  5. After this Christmas I'm going to make a tutorial to install Catalina in this board, so you people don't have to read all this posts. Wait for it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
  6. Would be a good idea to do what IronManJFF told you to read from page 160 forward.
  7. Your system "thinks" is a Mac Pro 3,1 because you are using a rom with the default plist in it, what you need to do is to put the ssd in sata 0 ( disconnect all other drives you have ) then you have two options, insert an OzmosisDefaults.plist within an iMac 13,2 or Mac mini 6,2 or 8,1 in the rom provided a few posts back or put the defaults plist on the directory Ozmosis create in the EFI partition ( you will probably will need to boot from an early system to do that or do it from the shell) if you do the first when you flash the new rom it will actualize the system, you will need to go to settings and load optimized defaults and then choose PEG in the video card default, IPEG could be disabled or let as auto; remember you can't boot with the onboard card on Mojave or Catalina, you need a card supported, remember that nvidia have no drivers for mojave or catalina. Sorry, quoted ntsmkfob instead of valiant
  8. Catalina is great, but you must be aware of the problem with old apps that are 32-bit that don't work on Catalina, other than that it is faster than Mojave precisely because the apps are 64 not 32-bit and have some new features that are great. You also must be aware that you would have problem if you want to dual boot with Mojave, at least in my system Mojave wouldn't boot anymore.
  9. Solved with Liluy and WhateverGreen kexts.
  10. Warning to all, the update to Catalina corrupted my ROM and I have to flash it again, so be advised.
  11. From here: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/291655-ozmosis/?do=findComment&comment=2679922
  12. Playing with Catalina and it looks really good power management works a lot better tan Mojave, a warning, you need a dedicated graphic card, the internal don't even boot and you have to choose the PEG card as default in bios not automatic. Attached is the rom I use with the exception of Ozmosis default ( I use macmini8,1 ), you must replace it with a defaults appropriated to the new OS. Enjoy Ozmosis-Catalina.rom.zip
  13. Going to stay with Mojave until apps get upgraded to 64 bits.
  14. Upgraded without a hitch.
  15. You must use the latest rom posted by IronManJFF at the top of this page and a plist actualized to the last firmware ( several pages back I posted one with macmini8,1 configuration ) you could integrate the plist on the rom or use it in the Oz EFI folder, obtain the serial number with clover configurator. Good luck
