Hi @Gigamaxx... maybe you want try test new EFI in your desktop Z170...just for boot install only...and the runnning install will long feel minutes after 20 sec at boot, and wait 4 minutes, so installer will run to install page region language...so, be patient...:lol:

 

Works fine in Lenovo E470 intel iGPU 620...is for install only, just put -igfxvesa on Nvram boot args.

Hey all......

 

When I tried to install Beta 3 with this technique, I got the following error:

 

NSDestinationFilePath=/Volumes/Install macOS Big Sur Beta/Install macOS Big Sur Beta.app/Contents/SharedSupport/SharedSupport.dmg, NSFilePath=/Applications/Install macOS Big Sur Beta.app/Contents/SharedSupport/SharedSupport.dmg, NSUnderlyingError=0x7fadaa59e4c0 {Error Domain=NSPOSIXErrorDomain Code=34 "Result too large"}}The copy of the installer app failed.

 

Anybody experience the same?

Hi friend yes in the first command which reads 

hdiutil create -size 12G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install

12gb is not enough, for beta 3 so I used 16gb instead. Works!

hdiutil create -size 16G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install

 

Notice the difference. It's 16gb instead of 12gb. 

 

Also in the clean up commands where he says do this:

 

hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Beta' |awk '{print $8}'` -force

 

I rather use command "diskutil list" to list all your disks. The one which is 12gb/16gb is the one you should detach. For me it was disk6 as you can tell here. (see attached screenshot)
 

hdiutil detach disk6 -force

I'm sure you notices your installer is probably called "Install Big Sur Beta" or something. I also use drag n drop to simplyfy matters. You can reveal the "createinstallmedia" file in finder and drag it into Terminal to avoid typing this whole command. Maybe you knew that. 

 

Good luck.

Yes it’s 12.88GB

@ludufre 

 

I am following your guide to install Big Sur Beta 3 but I am stuck with this error (see attached image), I had success with Beta 1 & 2 with your method and with Beta 2 also managed to create a bootable USB installer.

282016197_ScreenShot2020-07-25at7_52_03AM.thumb.png.de5496e2b38c4ad444e33db4e7ff7462.png

I have been struggling with Beta 3.

Creating USB installer is fine, but I get stuck with the ASmedia failed to reset error prompt on boot, same as @meaganmargaret. But on one of my USB ports after a NVRAM reset it progresses fine all the way to the installer.

I end up with the same error above during installation even using the USB installer.

 

I have tried downloading the Beta3 using the gibMacOS script at least 3 times now, assuming the previous copies could have been corrupt.

But no luck so far.

 

Any clue what this error might be caused by?

Shout out to @ludufre  and @Gigamaxx  for their assistance!  I got my Beta 3 hard disk install working because of you guys!  @Synaesthesia you too!

 

Apple did some things with this Beta, it is a difficult one.  I still can't get my USB install disk to work, even though I'm using the same EFI that is working on my Beta 3 hard disk.

Donator, Obrigado para tudo sua trabalho.  Minha portugues e limitada.

 

Have HP laptop and want to install to single partition on internal HD or alternatively to USB flash card.   VM fusion does not list USB devices as option.

 

This does not work for partition nor for USB:

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

This forum has this:

 

--BEGIN--

To create a Raw Disk vmdk:

    On the Mac terminal list all available disks and partitions by running this command:

    diskutil list
     
    Select the disk that should be used and list the partitions recognized by rawdiskCreator by running this command:

    /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator print /dev/disk#

    Note: /dev/disk# should be one of the disk identifiers shown by diskutil list, for example /dev/disk1
     
    Create a vmdk file referencing the physical disk, and save it inside the virtual machine bundle by running this command:

    /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/disk# <partNums> <virtDiskPath> ide

    Notes:
        <partNums> can be a comma-separated list of partitions to allow access to, such as "2" or "2,3". The numbers should match the output of the rawdiskCreator print command. Or to access the full disk, specify "fullDevice" instead of partition numbers.
        <virtDiskPath> should be a path inside the virtual machine bundle followed by a filename prefix, for example: ~/Documents/MyVM.vmwarevm/rawDiskFile

    This should create rawDiskFile.vmdk and for partitioned disks – rawDiskFile-pt.vmdk
     
    Edit the virtual machine configuration (.vmx) file of the virtual machine and add these lines. For more information, see Editing the .vmx file for your VMware Fusion virtual machine (1014782)

    ide0:0.present = "TRUE"
    ide0:0.fileName = "rawDiskFile.vmdk"
    ide0:0.deviceType = "rawDisk"
    suspend.disabled = "TRUE"
     
    Change ide0:0 to sata0:3
     
    Power on the Machine

---EOF--

 

Is there a better method to do the install to an existing partition with vmware fusion?  Prefer to install to USB to avoid any errors on the internal HD.

 

Alternatively, has anyone reading this used vmware workstation?

 

This is from vmware workstation info:

2
Choose VM>Settings.
3
On the Hardware tab, click Add to start the Add Hardware wizard.
4
On the Hardware Type page, select Hard Disk and click Next.
5
On the Select a Disk page, select Use a physical disk and click Next.
Select whether you want to use the entire disk or only individual partitions on the disk. If you select Use entire disk, continue with Step 9.
This page appears if you selected Use individual partitions in Step 7.
Only the partitions you select will be accessible to the virtual machine. The other partitions might be “visible” to the guest operating system, but it is not possible to mount, access, or format them.
To exclude disks from snapshots, select Independent for the mode and choose one of the following options:
Persistent – Changes are immediately and permanently written to the disk.
Nonpersistent – Changes to the disk are discarded when you power off or revert to a snapshot.
11
Click Finish.
12
If the partitions used on the physical disk are not formatted for your guest operating system, use the guest operating system’s tools to format them.
 
 
*
 
Caution Regarding the use of fdisk or a similar utility:
After you add a virtual machine disk by using one or more partitions on a physical disk, never modify the partition tables by running fdisk or a similar utility in the guest operating system.
If you use fdisk or a similar utility on the host operating system to modify the partition table of the physical disk, you must re-create the virtual machine’s physical disk.
 

Here is my EFI of OC 0.6.1 built from scratch for my Gigabyte Z370N Wifi. This one boots Big Sur DP 4 from usb and installs just fine. I am using Intel Display Port Audio and also the onboard Realtek HD Audio. Both work. Wifi is BCM94352Z card which also works flawlessly. Bluetooth and Airdrop also work. USB ports work as expected. You need to create your own USBMap.kext.

DP3 fails to install to partiton with vmware fusion instructions given in forum.  HP laptop with single spinning rust no partition install, usb media no partition install.

 

Vmware conplains can not open device.

 

Anybody with a vmware fusion solution to this and a DP3 OC build that boots.n

 

Stuck at "no variable initialized for method ESDT.

 

Catalina goes right past this ESDT issue when booting.

If you have the same motherboard, why not use the readymade EFI from my sig and install from USB?

Ok. This was looking like a great guide until I got to 

hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Beta' |awk '{print $8}'` -force

I had to change 'Install macOS Beta' to 'Intsall macOS Big Sur' as installing the latest release but I get the following error message.

chris@chriss-Mac-Pro ~ % hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Big Sur' |awk '{print $8}'` -force

hdiutil: detach failed - No such file or directory.

 

Also had to change the size of SPARSEBUNDLE from 12G to 15G as getting error ' not enough memory'. Im assuming the beta had less memory requirements.

 

I have followed the guide to the 'T' only changing 'Beta' for 'Big Sur'. See below

 

 

hdiutil create -size 15G -fs hfs+ -volname install -type SPARSEBUNDLE ~/Desktop/install

hdiutil attach ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle

sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ Sur.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/install --nointeraction

hdiutil detach `diskutil list |grep 'Install macOS Big Sur' |awk '{print $8}'` -force

hdiutil makehybrid -o ~/Desktop/install ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle

rm -rf ~/Desktop/install.sparsebundle.

 

Any assistance would be gratefully received. Thanks

Hello everyone,

@gizlin Did you start experiencing your kernel panics after installing a new NVMe SSD?  If so, what NVMe SSD are you using?  Read this.

 

I have been using Samsung EVO 970 since forever. Never had any issues with it until recently.

I guess there is a problem with the SSD?

Hello @gizlin. Your hardware is the same as this topic? Give us more information.

 

Do this please:

 

 

My specs are:

MOBO: z370n
CPU: i7 9700K
Power: Enermax 650W
RAM: Ballistix 32GB
SSD 1: EVO970 512Gb (macOS)
SSD 2: WD Blue 2Tb (data only)
GPU: RX 580

 

 

 

I have disabled TRIM. So far it seems to be fine.
