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...

      My steps so far:
      Set up Catalina install USB exactly according to Plain Vanilla guide. Disconnect my Windows drive in PC, so that only the empty Hard Drive is connected to Motherboard. Boot to USB, select Install Catalina option. BIOS set to UEFI, Safe mode Off. Always get stuck at the same IOconsoleUsers: GIOScreenLockState point. Tried -radvesa, -radoff, nv-disable=0 boot options (separately), and disabling BIOS virtualization (vt-d) -> NO luck. This from the top search result https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/b5a6ry/ioconsoleusersgioscreenlockstate_3_blackscreen/  
      Screen pics attached. Here are the last couple of lines that could be important:
      GTrace synchronization point 4
      Unsupported CPU
      Unsupported PCH
      Adding ADGP mode validate property
      hmm.. mismatch sizes 3100 vs 20
      IOConsoleUsers: time(0) 0->0, lin 0, llk 1,
      IOconsoleUsers: gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0
       
      Please give me some ideas what else might work. Thank you.

      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       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  
      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).
       
      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)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)  
      Notes:
       
      2020.03.26: Updated to 10.15.4 -> Updated WhateverGreen, Lilu -> Updated Clover to v5107
      2020.03.23: Removed "EmuVariableUefi.efi" -> deleted, caused false nvram map, now it's native, updated Clover to v5106
      2020.02.11: Updated to 10.15.3 -> No problem when/after installing
      2020.01.19: Added ASUS HyperKit NVMe SSD to the "What is working" list

      Hi everyone,

      I have run into a frustrating problem here.

      My hardware:
      MSI x399 Meg Creation
      2990WX
      64GB ram @2933Mhz
      Radeon 7
      Sata: Samsung 130GB SSD
      M.2: Samsung 970 Pro 1TB(latest firmware)

      Using OpenCore 0.5.6
      (NVMeFix NVMeDxe installed)
      I have successful installed OSX catalina onto my 130GB. It works flawlessly.

      and then I figure I should do it on my M.2 drive. It installs flawlessly, at the last stage of installation, it naturally restart and thats it.
      I can not boot into this newly installed OS on the M.2 drive. it keeps throwing: "error loading kernel cache 0x1"

      I have tried deleting the prelinkedkernel from recovery partition. Tried rebuilding cache(I have not installed any kext into L/E).

      All this time, I can use the same boot USB to boot into catalina on my sata 130Gb SSD working just fine.
       
      attached is my EFI folder. I have tried all the suggested SMBios iMacPro1,1 MacPro6,1 MacPro7,1
       
      is this ruled out that samsung 970Pro doesnt work?
      Please help.
