Hi @ludufre,

Sorry for bother you, but I have questions, it is the first time that I have to use an VM to install macOS, but this as proved to give us hackintoshers a fight, that we will win for sure, but in meantime this are my questions: 1 - what is the VM That you use? 2 - why do we have to create an ISO?

Obrigado

Are you referring to virtualization software? If so, it's VMware Fusion.

If it is which virtual machine created? I made a Custom. I updated the guide just now with the photos.

The ISO is created to install the system on the HD connected to this virtual machine.

Hey,

 

You BCM94360CS2 work or not so ?

Not work for me

 

I'm not using that wifi in this build. I moved to my laptop: Fit BCM94360CS2 inside Lenovo L440

 

Maybe this weekend I'll test and update here.

 

Current using DW1560 with AirportBrcmFixup.kext

This bunch of <feff> shouldn't be there. Copy and paste again. It needs to be exactly as written in the guide.

Is this going to be like this rest of the betas or will we get kext injection working via bootloader, means now we are pretty much dependent to VM for now or forever

Will we get kext injection working via bootloader. I believe that soon we will have compatible bootloaders.

Does Fusion allow the VMDK for the "raw" partition on a volume of the APFS instead of the entire disk?

 

Only the entire disk.

Followed it and the Quick Look command doesn't allow the "Open" tab to turn blue.   results in this error.

I am not exactly sure, if I understand your exact problem.
I had to go over several times and even created and deleted several VM's to get this to even start install.

 

I always had issue connecting the physical disk with some or the other error and also sometimes while I attempt to start the VM with error's similar to yours.

 

Make sure you follow the guide to the T

Several times I made the mistake of missing the first line in the command below, to unmount the disk.

sudo diskutil unmountDisk diskX
/Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/diskX fullDevice ~/Desktop/bigsur.vmwarevm/physical sata

Delete the existing VM and try all over again, you will eventually succeed.

 

I am on my way right now....Installation is in progress...

I can't erase disk : VMware Virtual SATA Hard Drive Media " Could not open device

I once faced the same problem, try restarting the machine, and before you restart VMWare, try formatting the drive.

 

If that fails, try unmouting the drive from terminal and then format.

@ludufreFollowing your guide I came up to this point

I then Shutdown the machine and copied my EFI folder onto the EFI partition of the just installed drive.

Now the system gets stuck at this point upon boot, anyone, any clues?

ok, but if instead of using VMware, I use a real mac to always install it on an external hard disk (and then use this on my laptop), is it the same thing?

      El Capitan 10.11.6 -> Big Sur 11 - Windows 10
       
      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound (all ports) USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) ASUS HyperKit and M.2 with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB Hardware decoding/encoding on both HD 530 and RX 5700 (HD 530 up to HEVC, RX 5700 at the time of writing VP9) iGPU only (with QuickSync) is used in the default config.plist To use dGPU for hw decode/encode and also use Intel QuickSync you need to start with "config_headless.plist" This will use iMac17,2 SMBIOS and shikigva=80 To use dGPU only boot with "config_amd.plist" also disable iGPU completely in BIOS. This will use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS without iGPU System Integrity Protection is Enabled by default. If you need to boot with SIP disabled you may use "config_debug.plist" or disable it manually in Clover settings. If you want Enabled SIP but with allowing unsigned kexts you may boot with "CsrActiveConfig = 0x01"  
      What is not working:
      -  
       
      Not tested:
      Thunderbolt (no equipment)  
      Issues:
      None  
      BIOS Settings:
      Boot\CSM (Compatibility Support Module): Launch CSM: Disabled Boot\Secure Boot: OS type: Other OS Secure Boot State: Disabled Advanced\System agent (sa) Configuration: VT-d: Enabled Graphics Configuration: (This is for HD 530 in headless) Primary Display: Auto (to use dGPU only this must be PEG) iGPU Multi-monitor: Enabled (to use dGPU only this must be Disabled) RC6(Render Standby): Enabled (to use dGPU only this must be Disabled) DVMT Pre-Allocated: 128M Advanced\PCH Storage Configuration: SATA Mode Selection: AHCI HyperKit: Enable (if you have NVMe SSD with ASUS HyperKit) Advanced\CPU Configuration: Intel Virtualization Technology: Enabled CPU- Power Management Control: CPU- C-States: Enabled Intel SpeedShift: Enabled  
      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5126): Click here -> Z170-DELUXE_Clover_v5126.zip (Tested: El Capitan 10.11.6 -> macOS Big Sur 11.0.1)  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia, gibMacOS - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager, gibMacOS) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:

       
       



       
      El Capitan 10.11.6
       
      Sierra 10.12.6
       
      High Sierra 10.13.6
       
      Mojave 10.14.6
       
      Catalina 10.15.7
       
      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:
      According to @albertoacj's comment Sidecar is only working in headless iGPU mode when using an AMD GPU, keep that in mind No need to change anything inside Clover from El Capitan to Big Sur For macOS Mojave and older you might need the full AirPortBrcmFixup.kext for full WiFi support

      In this thread, I have fully documented the installation of macOS Catalina on my HP EliteDesk 800 G4 Mini. It is a PERFECT HackMini8,1 and is running very well for me without any issues. I hope this documentation helps you to install macOS on your hack. Please leave feedback if you think there is anything I can improve and let me know if you have any questions.
      **********************************************************************************
       
      Background
      This is my first "modern" hack supporting UEFI and my first hack using Clover "on-the-fly" patches.  My previous hacks
      Laptop: Thinkpad T61 / Nvidia NVS 140m Laptop: Dell Latitude E6410 / Nvidia G3100m Desktop: Gigabyte G31 / GeForce 9600 Desktop: Biostar TH55HD / Sapphire Pulse RX580 (Google "Catalina Biostar TH55HD" and look for user name deeveedee)  
      are all perfectly running Catalina and I patched them all "manually" - all DSDT patches applied with MaciSL with virtually no Clover on-the-fly patching and all booted Legacy Clover.  This UEFI hack was MUCH easier and took about 20 hours vs. a combined hundreds of hours for the old hacks.  I wanted a hack that was a little more future proof and I think this is it.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I am enjoying it.  It is a perfect MacMini8,1.

      In Big Sur Apple decided to exempt many of its apps from being routed thru the frameworks they now require 3rd-party firewalls to use (LuLu, Little Snitch, etc.)
       
      Q: Could this be (ab)used by malware to also bypass such firewalls?
       
      A: Apparently yes, and trivially so.
