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?

Quote

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).

Thanks for help. I was able to do first boot in safe mode. Still cannot boot in regular mode.

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:

killall Dock
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences AttentionPrefBundleIDs 1

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
       
      Please read Readme-10.15.pdf first.
       
      How to finish the Catalina installation.
      1. Use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make USB Catalina Installer.
      2. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Disk Utility, format as MBR HFS+. 
          Install Catalina to blank MBR HFS+ "Target" partition.
      3. Boot to USB Catalina Installer, open Utilities -> Terminal, run the script command:
          copytempdata
      4. Boot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition on single user mode (-s), run the script command:
          hfsupdatecache
      5. Reboot to "Target" MBR HFS+ partition, setup user name and login, finish the installation.
       
      Also, you need to setup Clover as BooterConfig=0x28, CsrActiveConfig=0x67
       
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      List of known issues:
      1. Some app-pkg-installers can't install to HFS+, but install to APFS fine.
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Pass the MBR check, allow macOS 10.15 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Pass the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. Pass auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.15.
      4. This MBR-Manual-Method will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
      5. This MBR-Manual-Method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
      As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method,
          needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
      2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
          install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR HFS+ and GUID HFS+, will never convert the partition format.
          We can manually format as MBR HFS+ or GPT HFS+ on installation screen like as 10.12.
          We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 on installation screen now.
          Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, 10.14, 10.15 future versions, I think so.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
          End of MBR and HFS+, there is no more MBR HFS+ patch available for 10.15 native OSInstaller.

      How to make 10.15 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
      Just use EasyMBR-Installer1015 to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q4. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave, Catalina?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      Read HowTo Q/A Q7. How to update 10.15.x combo-update to MBR and GPT with installScript directly?
       
      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
       

       
      Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

      Installing macOS Catalina on Lenovo ThinkPad L440

       
      There are two version of this laptop:
      - 20AS = Chipset QM87, without Express Card (mine).
      - 20AT = Chipset HM86, with Express Card.
      I strong believe is the same thing...
       

      Changelog:
       
      10/20/2019 20:47h GMT-0
      - Removed AppleBacklightFixup.kext.
      - WhateaverGreen now implements backlight since 1.2.5.
       
      10/20/2019 18:10h GMT-0
      - First version.
       
      What works and what does not
       
      - Processor: Intel Core i5-4300M ->  Work. All SpeedStep stages.
      - Video Card: Intel HD4600 ->  Work. QE/CI and Metal.
      - Chipset: Intel QM87 ->  Work.
      - Mini DisplayPort ->  Work. But no audio, yet.
      - VGA ->  Not work. Normal.
      - Audio: ALC292 ->  Work.
      - WiFi/Bluetooth: Intel AC 7260 ->  Not work. Replaced with DW1560 (need whitelist removal).
      - Ethernet: Intel I217-LM ->  Work.
      - Card Reader: Realtek RTS5227 ->  Not work.
      - Keyboard and Touchpad ->  Work.
      - Webcam ->  Work.
      - Fingerprint Reader ->  Not work. Normal.
      - USB3.0 ->  Work.
      - Sleep ->  Work.
      - Airdrop, Handoff and Continuity ->  Work after replaced wireless.
      - Instant Hotspot ->  Not work.
       
       
      Extras
       
      - FullHD 1920x1080 display upgrade: 
      Replaced with AU Optronics B140HAN01.1 30pin eDP (B140HAN01.2 and B140HAN01.3 also compatible).
      Apparently same screen as Dell Latitude E6440, E7440, Lenovo Ideapad U430 and E129.
       
      - CPU upgrade:
      Replaced the stock Intel Core i5 4300M 2.6Ghz (3.3Ghz turbo) 6M cache with Intel Core i7 4700MQ 2.4Ghz (3.4Ghz turbo) 6MB.
      I initially had problems with overheating. The processor ran at full load above 90 degrees.
      After using a quality thermal paste I can work between 70 and 80 degrees.
      Acceptable taking into consideration that the new processor has 47TDP versus 37TDP which is recommended.
      I also had no problem consuming the battery while charging. The original 65W source seems to have figured out.
       
      - Touchpad upgrade:
      Replaced the stock with T460 touchpad.
      This is serious: you have to do it! It should be stock. Touchpad with precision and absurd quality!
      Just do it!
       
      - RAM upgrade:
      16GB (2x8GB). No mistery here. Just upgade.
       
       
      Todo
       
      - Make DP audio work.
      - Make Card Reader work.
      - Make trackpad appear in System Preferences
      - Make Instant Hotspot work.
       
       
      What you need to install

      - Running install of macOS
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger
      - macOS Mojave install app
      - Clover EFI
      - Clover Configurator
      - Some KEXTs and SSDT patches


      How create create the install flash drive
       
      Prepare install flash drive

      Format the flash drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map
       
      Create install flash drive

      Open terminal and run this command:
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.
       


      Install bootloader

      Download the CloverEFI from official repository (used 5097) and install only with these options on "Install macOS Mojave":
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - AudioDxe (Just to have nice sound on boot)
      - UEFI Drivers - Recommended Drivers - FSInject (I still don't know if it's really necessary)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - ApfsDriverLoader (Support to APFS partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - File System drivers - VBoxHfs (Support HFS/HFS+ partitions)
      - UEFI Drivers - Memory fix drivers - AptioMemoryFix (Fix the memory management of de UEFI/BIOS)
       
      FileVault 2
       
      If you plan to use FileVault 2, you need to download additional drivers, since what comes with Clover is not up to date and use VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC.
      Follow instructions bellow:
       
      From current Clover installation, check these options to USB keyboard/mouse work on password screen:
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbKbDxe
      - UEFI Drivers - Human Interface Devices - UsbMouseDxe
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
       
      Download the versions 2.1.0 and 2.0.9 of AppleSupportPkg from: https://github.com/acidanthera/AppleSupportPkg/releases
      We need the last version of AppleGenericInput.efi that is inside 2.1.0 and last version of AppleUiSupport.efi that is inside 2.0.9.
      Put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/
       
      VirtualSMC is more compatible than FakeSMC, so download the last version in: https://github.com/acidanthera/VirtualSMC/releases (currently 1.0.8)
      Copy VirtualSmc.efi to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/ and all Kexts to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/
       
       
      That's it! FileVault 2 will work without problems.
       

       
       
      Make things works
       
      After Clover install will be created a partition named EFI and mounted in Desktop. Usually the path is /Volumes/EFI/.
       
      - Replace the /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with mine attached below
      - Put SSDT-L440.aml attached below in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/
       
      Generate your Serial, MLB and SmUUID
       
      - Open the replaced config.plist with Clover Configurator (used 5.6.2.0)
      - Go to SMBIOS, click few times in "Generate New" in Serial Number and SmUUID.
       
      Copy the Clover Configurator to flash drive because you will need later.
       
      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/
       
      - Download the VirtualSMC from here. I used all Kexts and UEFI driver (put VirutalSmc.efi inside /Volumes/EFI/EFI/drivers/UEFI/) from version 1.0.8 (If you followed the steps to enable FileVault 2 above, skip to the next item).
      - Download the Lilu.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.8.
      - Download the VoodooPS2Controller.kext from here. I used version 2.0.4.
      - Download the IntelMausiEthernet.kext from here. I used the version 2.5.0.
      - Download the AppleALC from here. I used the version 1.4.2.
      - Download the WhateverGreen.kext from here. I used the version 1.3.3.
      - Download the USBInjectAll.kext from here. I used the version 2018-1108.
       
      Important! If you are coming from my previous Mojave guide, please note that I am using some kexts from other repositories / authors.
       
       
      Wifi and Bluetooth (DW1560 / BCM94352Z)
       
      Unfortunately, some notebook manufacturers are currently blocking the replacement of wireless cards. They want you to only use the models sold by them. And of course, none of them from Lenovo for this notebook model is compatible with MacOS.
       
      If you try to start with an unauthorized wifi card for them, you will receive a screen error:
      1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card. Since this check is done directly in the BIOS, the only solution is to modify it.
      But since nothing is easy in this life, there is one small big problem:
      - The BIOS update procedure does not allow you to use modded files as it used to be.
      - You will need to physically reach your BIOS on the motherboard and make use of a USB BIOS reader/writer.
       
      So what you need to do:
      1. Disassembly your laptop;
      2. Dump your BIOS with an USB BIOS reader with SOIC8 clip (to not desolder from the motherboard);
      3. Patch it (Ask on UEFI hack forums over there to someone patch for you. Every dump is unique, so mine don't work to you.);
      4. Fix RSA signature;
      5. Reflash BIOS;
      6. Replace wireless card;
      7. Remount your laptop;
      8. Done.
       
      To fix a Modded BIOS to remove the 5 beeps on boot, you need this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/337333-guide-fix-insyde-h2o-bios-signature-5-beeps-on-lenovo (traduzido: pt-BR)
       
       
      After replaced the wireless card. Download those Kexts and put in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/
       
      - Download the AirportBrcmFixup.kext from here. I used the version 2.0.3. (To enable Wireless)
      - Download the BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext, BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext and BrcmPatchRAM3.kext from here. I used the version 2019-10-17. (To enable Bluetooth)
      - Download the BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext from here. I used the version 1.1.4. (To enable Handoff and Continuity)
       
      Keep in mind that the bluetooth kexts are currently in development and the official releases will be available in future in the repository: https://github.com/acidanthera/BrcmPatchRAM/releases
       
       
      Now you can start the installation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      How install
       
      UEFI Setup Configuration and Installation

      UEFI configuration
       
      My BIOS is the latest: 1.93 (J4ET93WW) 

      - Shutdown and insert the flash drive.
      - Power on with F1 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Change value: Config - Intel(R) AMT - Intel(R) AMT Control to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Security Chip to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Intel(R) AT Module Activation to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Anti-Theft - Computrace to DISABLED
      - Change value: Security - Secure Boot to DISABLED
      - Change value: Startup - UEFI/Legacy Boot to BOTH, Legacy First and CSM Support = Yes
      - Save & Exit Setup (F10)
       
      - Now, hold the F12
      - In the list, select your flash drive.
       
      The installer will start. 
      
      Format destination disk

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Macintosh".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: APFS and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      Close Disk Utility.
      
      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install

      After first part install the system will reboot. Maybe you have to press F12 again and select the flash drive.
      
      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to make the system disk bootable.

      Open the Clover Configurator from flash drive that you copied before.

      Mount and open the flash drive EFI partition. (Inside Clover Configurator, Mount EFI -> Select flash drive in Efi Partitions list -> Mount Partition -> Open Partition)
       
      Copy the EFI folder to desktop.
       
      Go back to Clover Configurator, unmount the EFI partition of the flash drive and mount and open the EFI partition of internal disk.
       
      Move the EFI folder from Desktop to EFI partition of the internal disk.
       
      Eject the flash drive.
       
      Move all Kexts from EFI partition of internal disk to /Library/Extensions and make kext cache, with those commands in Terminal:
      sudo mv -R /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/* /Library/Extensions/ sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -i / Restart the system.
       
       
      It's done!
       
       
      System Updates
       
      As it comes up it will be inserted here.

      Since the Catalina beta 9, FileVault takes about 3 minutes to request the password.
       
      I am currently in a final version 19A602 and the problem continues.
       
      If anyone can take a look, I have attached "gen_debug" before and after disabling FileVault.
      I noticed that if I boot in verbose, the login screen takes the same time, but at left o screen a lot of lines pop up:
      ERROR: LWSmcUINT8ForKey smcProtocol-> SmcReadValue failed for key '... Important: In attachments the Kexts are in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.15/ but the behavior in /Library/Extensions is the same.
       
      Important 2: Tried without UsbKbDxe.efi, UsbMouseDxe.efi, Ps2MouseDxe.efi and same issue.
       
      My laptop is from this guide that I wrote: 
       
      gen_debug.zip
       
       
      [EDIT]
       
      Solved with https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/cre5da/filevault_howto
       
      Basically removes:
       
      AppleImageCodec.efi
      AppleImageLoader.efi
      AppleKeyAggregator.efi
      AppleUITheme.efi
      AptioInputFix.efi
      Ps2MouseDxe.efi
      FirmwareVolume.efi
      SMCHelper.efi
       
      And, add:
       
      AppleGenericInput.efi
      AppleUiSupport.efi
      VirtualSmc.efi
       
      Of course, replace FakeSMC kexts with VirtualSMC kexts.
       
      Now, just 5 seconds to ask password.
