    Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    Good news, your old legacy computer is back to live with GUID APFS now.

    But you get only one APFS partition as 10.14 before, not the 10.15 two APFS partitions system. You need to use createinstallmedia method to create USB installer to install 10.15 if you want to use the default two APFS partitions system. sudo /PathName/Install macOS Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USBPartitionName --nointeraction It works well.

    EasyMBR-Installer1015 is used for HFS+ installation, I only test it on HFS+, and once APFS on 10.15 beta before. If you want to install to APFS, you should use createinstallmedia method. Normally, people will use createinstallmedia method to create USB installer to install 10.15 if they don't use HFS+.

    It is ok, if you can make it with EFI.

    it will. APFS 10.15 need to use createinstallmedia method to create USB installer. Need to install boot0 boot1 boot to fat32 EFI partition, don't just copy EFI files to EFI partition only, it won't work like that.

    All right. SSD is not necessary. I mean a blank disk formated as GUID, HDD or SSD both work fine. 1. legacy computer (old desktop). Acer Aspire M3970 2011 vintage should work fine. 2. a blank disk formated as GUID, HDD or SSD both work fine. 3. suggest to make at least 3 partitions as EFI, HFS+(install 10.14 before,used to boot clover), APFS(10.15 boot from 10.14 clover), NTFS (windows 10, if you need it). 4. install Clover pkg to EFI or normal HFS+(10.14 before, GUID HFS+ 10.15 works fine too.) partition, then you can boot GUID APFS 10.15 partition. It will work fine. You can use USB to install 10.14 GUID HFS+, then boot from GUID clover to HDD 10.14 HFS+, and install 10.15 to APFS.

    No, APFS only works with GUID partition. You can use a new SSD with Clover pkg+GUID+APFS on legacy computer (old desktop).

    Yes, you need to install Clover pkg to USB and you need to setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67.

    Mojave MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    If you use EasyMBR-Installer1013 to make installer successfully, it will work fine with installer like as 10146EasyMBR18G103. No need to format as APFS, it work with MBR HFS+ without issue here. You may need to try it again, and make sure EasyMBR-Installer1013 works fine without error.

    It works fine here. How did you make the HFS installer? What's the errors you get it?

    Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    Well, this MBR HFS+ Catalina installation works fine here. And all scripts included on dmg work fine here on MBR HFS+ Catalina too. On Hackintoch, we setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67 to disable SIP. Since I don't understand what's your problem. But I think, the SIP may be your issue on your real Mac. On real Mac, you should use APFS system. This MBR HFS+ is used for whom still use MBR HFS+ on Hackintoch.

    All work fine here. You can post the script screen log here. We can see the errors.

    Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    No, i have no idea to recover it. If you want to try two apfs partitions system, you need to format ad guid table first. maybe you can try it on the other hdd or 32g usb stick. I mean, maybe the mds issue will happen on apfs too.

    Catalina MBR HFS Firmware Check Patch

    I never have this issue. Did it only happen on MBR HFS+? How about on APFS two partition system? If you have any fixed method earlier? If yes, I can check it, if not, I have no ideal.
