im on 10.15 Beta (19A582a), not able to get updates.

 

Here's what you should do:

  1. Open System Preferences on your Mac.
  2. Click on Software Update.
  3. On the left side, under the cog icon, you will see the message: "This Mac is enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program". If you want to stop receiving beta updates on you Mac click on Details. 
  4. A pop up will appear asking you to confirm that you want to restore default update settings. It will indicaate that any current updates won't be removed but you will no longer receive beta updates. To confirm this click on Restore Defaults.

Having removed your Mac from the beta program, once Catalina arrives you will be able to install the final version of the new macOS on your Mac.

I see some posts with what appear to be successful, straight Catalina updates on Hacks, is there anything to do (besides the obvious backing up) to prep a Hack for the update? Thanks!

I'd recommend to update clover to the latest version and take a look in the beta topic to apply needed patches and update kexts like lilu if necessary. Have patience during update process and wait for the reboots, even if your screen goes black. If you don't see anything, don't panic. Instead, check for a stucked installation process by looking at yout hdd led and wait. Bad signs are always repeated patterns of led flashing over a longer period or no hdd activity for more than a couple of minutes. In this case, boot verbose and see what it says and if you have pcie graphics, temporarely disable your IGPU. Also try orher way around. If still stucked, try safe mode or vga boot.

Just my opinion: maybe You use wrong SMBIOS. Try another one.

I updated 2 x systems directly through the downloaded app rather than go through the fresh/new installation route.

 

1/ Ivy Bridge/HD4000 Latitude E6230 laptop:

initial OS: Catalina beta11

initial Clover: r5058

Cancelled enrolment to beta versions seeding.

Downloaded Catalina off the AppStore and simply ran it.

All Ok on update completion.

Updated Clover to r5093 aftewards.

 

2/Kaby Lake R/UHD620 Latitude 7490 laptop:

initial OS: Mojave 10.14.6

initial Clover: r4919

Catalina offered through the macOS Software Update panel.

Updated Clover to r5093 before updating macOS.

All Ok on upgrade completion.

It's not wrong, I just didn't use an ecc ram. This SMBIOS works sooo perfect.

Just done it with dosdude's Catalina patcher and working fine. Make sure to download latest patcher.

Thank you... just bought a 16GB thumb drive to install in it with the patcher.... question, if we install the dosdude patch, will this still working in future catalina updates? or will break the patch?

That depends on what gets changed in the updates, I check the Mac rumor forums where dosdude post to check if everything works fine before updating. But he has been pretty consistent on keeping his patcher updated.

Well from your system specs in your sig, you shouldn't be using a MacPro7,1 SMBIOS. So it is wrong.

Can't add anything to /System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides

 

I used this command but it didn't help;

 

sudo mount -uw /

 

I must add my custom EDID file to this folder. How can I add?

 

Edit: I forgot to use 'killall Finder' command. Now it's working.

Same error here. I ended up with upgrading to 19A583 and manually downloading the archive from developer.apple.com/download/more...

      After a quite smooth running /w Mojave (both Clover, OC build), a few days ago I upgraded to Catalina soon after public release, and I found out DP output to black screen, then I switch to HDMI, it works. When DP goes black screen, unplug then plug the cable, screen comes back then gone.
      After a lot of searches, I found out some simalar cases, but none of them have a solution,
      today I was quite happy to find out this post is https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/majove-to-catalina-displayport-not-working.284983/.
      which solving by swithing to iMac19,1, which I think WEG quite needs an enhancement
      But I tried with no luck.
       
      And I don't know is it relevant to this issue, sometimes wakeup, I got panic, somehow like this:
      Kernel Extensions in backtrace: com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform(6.1)[927FAB0F-5B29-3E31-A1A4-DA7E904986C4]@0xffffff7f96b8c000->0xffffff7f96c26fff dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily(1.4)[9BA2613C-A129-3EDD-8DC1-2CFF6B62B832]@0xffffff7f9528f000 dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily(2.9)[E6E855AD-A5B2-3518-A997-1384B4360708]@0xffffff7f952a1000 dependency: com.apple.driver.AppleSMC(3.1.9)[EB9D605D-85B1-3506-8B2E-ABD195817A4F]@0xffffff7f952de000 whole panic log in attachment 

      My build:
      Asrock z370 gaming itx/ac
      i3 8100
      Only Intel UHD630 with LG UL550 4k monitor
       
       
      Or is there any guide how to do some logging for this issue?
      thanks

      I have working Mojave version of Hackintosh and it's working perfectly but when I have upgraded to Catalina it's stuck after reaching 90% of the progress bar. When I verbose the boot I got the IGPU problem and if I pass -disablegfxfirmware then I don't get any error log but the progress bar still stuck on the same position and screen became purple. Am I need anything more patch to get a working Catalina machine with Intel HD 630? If I need then how can I do it?
      My EFI link -
      Download
        
      My computer specification is -
      Motherboard: Gigabyte h110m-h-cf
      CPU: Intel Core i5-7400 CPU@3.00GHZ
      Graphics: 4gb GeForce GT730 DDR3 (I have disabled it)
      Ram - 16gb ddr4
      Monitor - Dell connects through the HDMI port.

      - Touchpad and Keyboard (ELAN501): Fn keys are good, the weird thing is the Brightness key. On my keyboard it's Pause Break:Br-up, Fn+F12:Br-dwn-> To fix this try Karabiner (VoodoPS2Controller.kext), - for gestures try SmartTouchpad drivers
      - Battery info: Install ACPIBatteryManager.kext with Kext Utility or other installer.
      - Sleep Mode

      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method: You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      For any system kext installation\modification you need to boot with config_debug.plist (or disable SIP manually)
      Also on Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!
