    Ok, but now having issues with Clover - memory SLIDE allocation - sometimes not boot, slow to load... no mouse or no high res vid on boot..(in clover)...
    I guess I have to dig into Clover now and see what is different... V 1503 Clover .. fun!

    Got Catalina installed properly with the 2 containers... os & data.... the problem I had was actually a bad USB drive... so was causing corruption of clover... finally tried another USB and all went well... even fixed audio issues....so we have proper Catalina now....thanks for patience and comments..

    Ok.... I didn't realize easyMBR was just for HFS+ ... I will use createinstallmedia for APFS then... 
    I will try that way.
     
    Thank you

    I have no problem at all.
    Just wanted to report my experience.
    And You are right - setup was done on real Mac,
    not hackintosh.
    On real Mac SIP is also no problem at all,
    can be disabled from recovery.
    I hoped that Catalina HFS+ would be ok on real Mac, cause of compatibility
    with older systems and various tools I use, but it seems not to be so, well ok , not a problem.
    I just wanted to avoid APFS.
    My hackintosh is happily running on HFS+ High Sierra.

    It works here with Firefox to attach pictures to facebook or gmail web site on MBR HFS+ 10.15.1, I only use Firefox, not test with Chrome and Safari.
     
    APFS can  be used on GUID table only, can't be used on MBR table.

    Time Machine is working on HFS+. My all Time Machine HDD's are HFS+. As far as I know, Time Machine doesn't work with APFS;

    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.

    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.

    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.
