I don't honestly understand what does "//AppleInternal.." mean, but as far as I know it' s just a warning that can be ignored, not error. Also appears on Terminal eg. after rebuilding prelinkedkernel, it seems not related with.. (on your case) after did `sudo mount -uw /` your system root is rewritable (temporarily). Also `killall Finder` if you're dealing with it.

 

Thanks @crazybirdy for his script, Catalina's System root is writable by default with HFS+, 3rd party Apps also appear on Lanchpad after simple drag n drop them to /Applications just similar to Mojave or prev macOS, and no Data partition as bonus #LoL. Guessing there will be no update notif from Apple but.. no worry for now, the catalog is still alive on Apple server right?

I cannot do the first boot into the system after installation Catalina b2.

I already removed all the kext from “Other” folder except of FakeSMC.

still Booting stops. I tried to reinstall Catalina without luck.

 

Please can anyone look at my screen photo and make any suggestion?

I found only that “disk2/s1: Device is not readable” and it is boot device - my hard disk.

 

I am on HP Envy laptop. Skylake I7-6250U, Intel HD540.

I looked at your Clover folder and there is nothing that should be causing your HDD to be unreadable. If you switch to VirtualSMC, remove the SMCHelper.efi driver.  But in the screenshot above, I noticed that the stall occurs not when it finds the Catalina partition to be unreadable but when it unmounts it.  It may be that, during final installation, you get an error that causes the partition to be unmounted so that when you reboot, it's still unmounted.  I can't be certain but you might try booting to the recovery partition or possibly your Mojave partition and see if the Catalina partition is mounted.  If it is, when rebooting, select Catalina as the startup disk in system preferences and see if it works.  You could also try booting into single-user mode and manually mounting your Catalina partition "sbin/mount -uw /".  Lastly, I doubt it matters but you might try deleting your custom drive list in Clover's config.plist and setting scan to automatic.

Also don't forget to copy the VirtualSmc.efi file instead.

Thanks for help. Smbios is the same, generated by CC. Today I will try clean install VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC and Rehabman config.

Can you please check my Clover folder in meantime?

CLOVER.zip

HI , anything new ?

Today Apple released the first Public Beta of macOS Catalina 10.15 (19A487m).
MacOS Catalina 10.15 (19A487m) Public Beta was released today on June 24th, 2019 at 12:00 CST. The first Public Beta was released just three short weeks after 10.15 Catalina was first announced at WWDC19. Even though this seems really early, the first public beta of macOS 10.14 Mojave was release just 2 days later on Jun. 26th 2018.

 

This Build Version (19A487m) looks to be the same as Beta 2 (19A487l).
You will not find this update in software update if you are running Beta 2 (19A487l). If you are running the current version you do not have to worry about updating or reinstalling with (19A487m).

What do you think may cause problem?

Hi Guys,

Here is an application which @ricoc90 created to download different versions of macOS from High Sierra to Catalina (Final versions and Betas) for the users that have issues with downloading the whole installer.

I just downloaded the first Public Beta using this app :)

 

@fantomas1

Please add the link to the first post if you thinks it's gonna be useful for others as well.

I don't understand: I'm using VirtualSMC without this drivers because,  In VirtualSMC FAQ: "VirtualSMC.efi module is recommended for boot.efi compatibility when FileVault 2 is enabled." I make a mistake.

Okay it looks like it's not necessary in most cases then.

Glad to hear you got your laptop to boot.  I'm sure that your graphics settings are the likely culprit at this point.  Your ig_platform_id was bogus.  You need to use the correct one.  For the HD530, you use 0x19120000.  I'm not sure if that works for the HD540.  You also add a Fake Device ID 0x19128086 in Devices.  Lastly, make sure Inject Intel is enabled.

My System Preferences Dock icon has a notification badge.  Usually, that means I have an update. But I don't. How can I tell what the badge is referring to?  There are no badges on any of my System Preferences Icons when I open System Preferences. Is this a glitch?  Is it unique to Catalina or does it happen in other versions of macOS as well?  

 

P.S. - killall Dock doesn't help.

EDIT:  This got rid of it:

defaults write com.apple.systempreferences AttentionPrefBundleIDs 0
killall Dock
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences AttentionPrefBundleIDs 1

      Apologies ahead of time if this is in the wrong thread (please move to appropriate thread if necessary) as it applies to pre-installation and post-installation, Mojave and Catalina, motherboards, user preferences, but it's all related and I just had to get all this written down since it's all resolved...
       
      The issues:
      MOJAVE 10.14.6 2019 SECURITY UPDATE
      CATALINA 10.15.1 INSTALLER USB
      POST Mother Board UPDATE ISSUES
      UEFI Bootloader disappearing from BIOS boot menu/setup
      MAPS NOT WORKING/ CORRUPT USER/LIBRARY/CACHE
      GPT HEADER CORRUPTION AT BOOT
       
      This is my system which has worked flawlessly ever since 10.14.1 and automatic updates within the OS.
      10.14.6 iMac 18,3
      ASUS Rog Maximux X Code Bios v 2023
      Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 Special Edition
      1 NVME System Drive, 1 x 1TB NVME Scratch Disk,  4 Internal 8TB HDD in raid 1+0, 4 x 3TB in a raid 5 setup with enclosure, 1 Backup System SSD, 1 2TB Time machine HDD (get to why I’m listing the drives later)
       
      Instead of making different posts for all of these issues that I’ve spent that past two weeks trying to solve (I almost gave up) I thought for anyone else out there experiencing one or any of the above issues you might find a solution in this thread.
       
      First let me say thanks to all the people out there in the various hackintosh communities (hackintoshers, tonymac, insanelymac, olarila, reddit) I researched every single one to find solutions for all these issues.
       
      Second, invest in Carbon Copy Cloner and make sure you make constant backups of your system drives.  Otherwise there would be no way to troubleshoot.
       
      So this all stemmed from not being able to update to Mojave 10.14.6 2019 Security Update released in November 2019.  
      My original post:
      Link removed:
      https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/e2naku/cant_update_mojave_to_security_update_2019001/
       
      There were plenty of different errors through troubleshooting:
      Kextdstall[1] (240s) ‘AppleACPICPU’
      or
      considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel com.apple.nke.webcontentfilter trigger rebuild
      or
      com.apple.xpc.launchd.domain.system
      <error>: Could not read path: path = /Library/LaunchDaemons, error=2: No suchfile or directory
      And
      IOG flags 0x3(0x51)

      IOConsoleUsers” gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs0, now 0, sm 0x0
      (The last two, still exist, but don’t stall/severely halt boot, and I’m not really sure if it’s an issue that needs to be addressed as I believe I’ve used the correct format of Device Properties to inject my framebuffer as a headless UHD 630 with 0x3E980003)
       
      Then once I managed to get past some of the installer stalls I always ended at “Installer resources were not found” prompting a restart and continuous loop cycle of no successful install.
       
      Then I tried making a bootable Catalina USB and couldn’t even install a fresh copy of 10.15.1 on a separate SSD.  Again getting errors in verbose mode that would stall and go no further.
       
      Then after cloning, and failing, and cloning and failing, changing bios settings, at some points my UEFI bootloader would completely disappear for my Samsung NVME 970 pro system drive.
       
      Was really getting frustrated, but was determined to fix it.  And here they are one by one in the order I Fixed them:
       
      Clover UEFI Bootloader Disapepared from Boot Menu
      So first I figured out what was going on with the UEFI bootloader disappearing.  I tried complete wipes of the APFS drive, Reinstalling Clover on the EFI partition.  Nothing.  Finally Found the solution here thanks to @chibabah
      Link removed:
      Tips:
      1)    If you have lots of connected drives use the Page Up and Page Down key to scroll through results of bcfg boot dump
      2)    Use Disk Utility or Terminal before hand to verify the exact UUID of your EFI system drive that has disappeared.
       
       
      Post Motherboard Update
      Now this seems to apply to a lot of people in the community who have updated and unknowingly couldn’t boot their system, or in my case, couldn’t update the current OS to the latest version.  This seemed to apply to my ASUS Maximus X Code v 2203.
      Thanks @mattystonnie for your ACPI patch found here:
      Link removed:
       
      Can’t Install fresh version of Catalina 10.15.1
      So after almost giving up on not getting the latest Mojave Security update, I wondered if Catalina would have the same issues.  Well it had different issues.
      Stall - Virtual IOReturn ionvmecontroller
      AppleACPICPU stalling
      Requiring EC device
      So I found this reddit thread thanks @dracoflar:
      https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/den28t/whats_new_in_macos_catalina/
       
      And applied the SSDTTime.command create by @corpnewt @noone @rehabman available here:
      https://github.com/corpnewt/SSDTTime
       
      The SSDT-EC.aml file it created from my DSDT.aml was the FINAL KEY in allowing the Catalina Installer to complete.
       
      Tips:
      1)    If you haven’t already created a SSDT before, for example a custom USB SSDT, it is placed in your EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched/
      2)    In your config.plist under ACPI Check “AutoMerge” so that it is true.  This will automatically load any custom SSDT files from your patched folder.
       
      Apple Maps not loading
      This had been something that I had issues with before, more so with location services not working.  However, after several clones, and a succesful Catalina Install/User Migration, location services was fine, but Maps was a blank grey grid, couldn’t find an address, get directions, load satellite image.   Ended up being a corrupt User Library since other System Users had no issues using the application Maps.
      To fix this I used the following resources:
      https://appletoolbox.com/fix-corrupt-user-accounts-macos/
      1)
      Quit Maps
      Give Terminal Full Disk Access and the type:
      diskutil resetUserPermissions / `id -u`
       
      2)
      Deleting The Entire User Library Cache folder
      ~/Library/Caches
       
      3)
      Delete folder ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Maps/
       
      4)
      Restart Mac.  All these caches and temporary folders will repopulated themselves and Maps should resume working.  
       
      Installing Mojave 10.14.6 2019 Security Update
      This by far is the craziest of them all.  Whether the above things I implemented to my EFI or config.plist actually played a part or not in it finally working I guess I’ll never know.  But it is finally solved.  Simply by unplugging all drives.  Appears to be an issue with real macs too:
      https://bartechtv.com/macos-could-not-be-installed-on-your-computer-error-when-installing-mojave-on-hackintosh/
      Link removed:
      Didn’t have to go the terminal route as some did in the tonymac thread above.
       
      So since I have A LOT of drives I simply turned off my external enclosure, physically unplugged by 2nd NVME scratch drive, and disabled the SATA connectors in the BIOS.
       
      Low and behold after two restarts the Security update completed without a hitch or stall.
       
      After install I re-enabled/ connected/turned on all my drives, an no issues.  
       
      This must be a Mojave issue as I didn’t need to do this when installing Catalina from a USB installer.
       
      GPT header corruption has been detected
      And lastly for anyone out there with an ASUS Maximus Motherboard that has updated to the latest BIOS.  There seems to be an issue with external drives plugged into the PC (mine is in the back USB C port)  During boot the PC can’t POST and forces user into setup.
       
      I know there is nothing wrong with the GPT partition as I’ve run multiple tests in windows and mac.  And it’s a known issue with other ASUS motherboard users:
      https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?114955-GPT-header-corruption
       
      Temporary Solution:
      Until a BIOS update addresses this, go to your BIOS settings
      BOOT\Boot Configuration
      And change the Boot Sector (MBR/GPT) Recovery Policy to “Auto Recovery”

      Hello Everyone ,,
       
      I'd  like to share with you my experience with Lenovo ThinkPad P50 ( EFI , and Installation Process with some tips ) Hopefully to be useful for anyone who own Lenovo ThinkPad P50 
       
      Before start I want to show you my device specs , and I'm  sure 99% this will work too with any P50 have different spec. specially Intel i7 CPUs:
       
      - Intel Xeon E-3 1535 v5 ( P530 Intel HD Graphics )
      - 32 GB RAM
      - 256 GB SK Hynix Nvme SSD pc401 hfs256gd9tng-62a0a - for Mac OS  ( be careful not all nvme ssd are compatible)
      - 256 GB Samsung Evo 850 SSD - for Windows 
      - 4K Screen 
      - Nvidia Quadro M2000M 4 GB ( Useless - Disabled )
      - Intel WiFi Card ( Should be change to a compatible Broadcom one )
       
      BIOS SETUP :
       
      I highly recommend this steps before going to BIOS SETUP according to my experience with this Laptop :
       
            *( Update your BIOS Firmware to the latest one using windows )
       
            *( Remove Battery , Open the back cover and unplug the small CMOS BATTERY for about  4~5 minutes and put everything back again )
       
             * ( Remove any SSD HDD Nvme disks , USB , DisplayPort , Dock .. etc during installation, keep only the target Disk )

      Hi,
       
      I have recently installed Mojave. Went flawlessly. Then I upgraded to Catalina 10.15.1. Went almost flawlessly as well. The only problem I have detected so far is a problem with the sleep/wake cycle. It is possible to let the computer fall asleep, but no wake up then. Hard reset required.
      In the process of investigating I discovered that it is impossible to safe boot into safe mode. So I downgraded to Mojave, only to discover that the safe boot problem wast there too.
       
      These are my specs:
      Motherboard Gigabyte GA H77 D3H  rev 2.0
      MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.1 (Build 19B88)
      Kernel                         Darwin 19.0.0 x86_64
      RAM                            4.00 GB
      Model Identifier        iMac14,2
      CPU                            Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3225 CPU @ 3.30GHz
      Intel Generation      Ivy Bridge
       
      This is the output I get trying to boot with Clover and the bootflags: -v -x (I have also tried -v -x -f and UseKernelCache=no):
       

       
      Thank you so much in advance!
