I'm done with Catalina beta with virtual machine and run very laggy. i tried to install in my second HDD but have no luck. anyone can advice me which OS suitable for me, which kext i need and how to setup my bios setting. Please.







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.
