Can't download Monterey Public Beta


9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm enrolled in the free beta program but can't download Monterey from System Update. Currently on 11.4 and OC 0.7.1. In BIOS I've tried changing XMP to Auto, TPM is disabled, SIP is enabled, SecureBootModel is disabled, Gatekeeper is enabled. System Update shows that my hack is enrolled but the most recent OS available for me is 11.4. 

I'm wondering if its' possible that my Apple ID is banned? Is there a way to check?

Make sure you also run with a supported SMBIOS. Then, I'm not sure you can expect Monterey beta rather than Big Sur beta versions whilst running in Big Sur 11.4....

Why don't you just download the Monterey beta installation package directly and install 12.0 with it? See p1 of the existing pre-release Monterey thread...

Forgot to include that, SMBIOS is iMacPro1,1

It's at the boot OC 0.7.1 so it can't be upgraded. If you are not in a hurry I want you to try clover, you can clearly see the difference.

I'm not sure that's necessarily the issue. I have seen other posts from users with similar setup successfully running Monterey on OC 0.7.1, but I appreciate the suggestion.

Well, that's why I'm telling you to try to learn how to use clover actually that some of them have been able to install. But will he tell you the way? That's why I said that if you don't hurry, try using clover first. because the oc itself is sensitive If knowledge is not strong enough, there is only one hope that collapses.

I understand. I used clover for a while before switching to OC. I've got a pretty good understanding of OC, and installing the beta just to play around with it isn't worth the trouble of switching boot loaders back and forth. Thanks for the suggestions though!

Of course, if SIP is disabled through csr-active-config, Apple Internal flag (bit #5) must be kept disabled (i.e. bit unset) or no update will ever be offered.

You don't need to disturb a working ESP bootloader to install an additional clover or open core.
