As it stands, it's not a suitable platform for Catalina (or Mojave to that effect) due to current graphics specs.

 

No support for HD2000 iGPU at all and Radeon HD 6570 is not Metal compatible, i.e. not suitable for Mojave/Catalina. You'd have to go for a Metal compatible card to run Catalina which would therefore require:

  • GCN1.0 minimum for AMD cards (eg: Radeon HD 7750)
  • Kepler cards only for nVidia cards (eg: GeForce GT710/720/730))

 

AMD Radeon HD 6570 should be Ok with High Sierra though.

Thanks Herve.. I follow your advice and after I changed my GPU with GT 710, Vanilla Intel Desktop running smooth for me.

      I used this command: diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -i "Partition UUID" | rev | cut -d' ' -f 1 | rev

      But I accidentally removed the wrong disk and now my main windows drive is not appearing in the bootloader. I can't figure out how to get it back. I tried resetting my windows drive, but I kept getting an error. I also reset my mac and reinstalled Catalina.

      Hi, this is my first macos install and I need some help to make it perfect. I read vanilla open core guide few times, and this is the best result so far.
       
      Specs:
      Asrock Z370 Pro4(ALC892)
      i5 8400
      RX 480
      16GB DDR4
      Xonar DG(ignore, i guess there are no kexts)
      OpenCore Catalina 10.15.3
       
      Good things:
      Geekbench scores seems good (almost 1000 sc and around 5000 mc in GB5, OpenCL really good too-RX 590 level)
      Dual monitor works fine, 1440p 75hz and 1080p 120hz
      Bluetooth dongle plug and play(using for sound unitil i fix alc892)
      Sleep works(few seconds to get into sleep, but works fine I guess)
      Dual boot(Windows bootcamp option)
      No errors in log(had nvdrv error but i deleted it from config)
       
      Problems:
      Audio does not work(device not even detected, see image), i tried different alcid but does not work
      Hackintool says VDA Decoder failed(do not know if i need to add igpu?)
       
      Other issues:
      Double click to resize on titlebar laggs on some apps(maybe normal for mac?)
      Photoshop liquify tool not as smooth as it should be(maybe a ps thing or my build?)
       
      Maybe there are more bad things, pls help. I added screens from hackintool and EFI folder.

      Hi Hackintoshers,
       
      I'm trying to get an OpenCore Catalina 10.15.2 Hack working, I've read through the Opencore manual and read the vanilla guide for Haswell. Ive hit a roadblock.
      I can choose to boot the MacOS Catalina install. However, I get stuck on the boot screen (Just an apple logo with back wallpaper).
       
      Ive attached my log, config plist and EFI folder .
      Can someone let me know whats wrong?
       
      My hardware is
      i7 4790k Vega 56 24gb ddr3 Ram 1TB SSD sata ASRock Z87M Extreme4

      Ho provato tutti i modi ma sono arrivato alla conclusione che ha bisogno di una patch DSDT.
      Ciao, ho recentemente un hackintosh nel mio laptop e devo risolvere l'attacco video HDMI che non ha eseguito quando collego il mio laptop alla TV.
      le foto con queste informazioni sono state fatte con un programma quando che avrei vinto 10 nell'altra foto l'informazione di hackintosh.
      Acer Aspire 5741g Modello High Sierra System!
      Caratteristiche:
      CPU: Intel Core I3 350M 2.27Ghz Arrandale 32nm Tecnologia
      Ram: 6: 00GB
      Grafica: Monitor Pnp generico (1366x768 Ghz) 1024mb Nvidia GeForce GT 320M (Acer Incorporated)
      Archiviazione: 465 GB Sata
      Driver Optiocal: Optiarc DVD RW- AS-7585H
      Audio: dispositivo audio ad alta degradazione
      Qualcuno può aiutarmi!?! E 'la terza volta che faccio questo post in questo gruppo visto che sono nuovo nel mondo hackintosh preferisco se qualcuno è capace a risolvere il mio problema che lo faccia in remoto così non faccio sbagli.
