Catalina randomly locking up


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Installed it the other day, sometimes it'll work for 4-5 hours before it locks up and I have to reboot.  Specs:

 

ASRock Z77E-ITX

Intel i5-3570k

Intel HD4000 GPU

1 8gb Crucial Ballistix stick

Samsung 128gb SSD

UEFI

Clover boot, still booting off the USB stick I made, haven't gotten around to installing an actual boot loader yet. Wanted to wait until I have the locking up issues fixed.

 

I did a stock Niresh Catalina install, the only thing I've modified was I injected a kext to get my ethernet working. With it working for 3+ hours I doubt it's overheating, plus it'll lock up even when I'm not doing anything, but I can run something CPU intensive for a good hour with no issue.  You'll have to excuse me I'm a life long DOS/Windows guy so I'm still very much trying to adjust to OSX.  I did look at the system logs and when it's locking up I see a fsck_apfs_error.log, so i thought it was maybe something to do with my SDD. But I'm not able to decipher the log file. Here's a few lines from the log, the rest looks the same just repeated.

 I did look on here for a FAQ on what to put in a post if you need help, I apologize if there is one and I was just unable to find it. I'm really tired from lack of sleep + trying to get this working so I'm running on fumes. If there is a posting protocol I'll look for it when I wake up and have brain energy.

 

I went thru my BIOS and disabled XMP and set my memory to a lower speed - seems to be something that came up a lot when I Googled potential reasons it'll lock up.  I know for anyone to help me they'll need logs or file lists, please let me know.  These are the files in my EFI/Clover/ktext/other

 

XHCI-unsupported

VoodooPS2Controller

USBInjectAll

NullCPUPowerManagement

Niresh's Extra

When I did the install I didn't touch the section that lets you chose other kexts to install.

Distro alert!

 

No support for distros here; they are troublesome, not to say evil. They always contains all sort of c r a p that cause problems as you currently experience. Your list of kexts is a perfect example: an injector for Kaby Lake HD/UHD 6x0 graphics (you have an Ivy Bridge platform with HD4000 graphics), NullCPUPowerManagement (meaning no turbo boost, no sleep or wake) or FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics. :no:

 

Given that you somehow run Catalina, proceed with a full vanilla re-installation. You may proceed so on a separate partition on your disk to begin with, in order to experiment and work out all you need for a complete successful build. Good luck!

Thank you for replying, I suspected as much lol. I wanted to get my feet wet before I jumped into trying Opencore. I'm going to go read up and get crackin on building an Opencore installer.  I know that's what I should have done from the start. I'll format the  disk and start over,  from all my reading online Opencore would be the best route to go here.
