  • Allan changed the title to [Release] macOS Big Sur 11.5

I thought the updates were just what has changed i.e combo updates like OS X

but looks like a whole system upgrade going by its size,

witch would be idiotic if the only change was 1 byte :hysterical:

It is wrong SMBIOS patch. Look your bootloader log.

macOS 11.5 still works OK on my >10 years old legacy machines eg

Notes

  • Both my legacy desktop and laptop are now able to reliably boot macOS 11.5 with latebloom.kext - try it if you notice random boot hangs/hardware failures on old machines (pre 2012) when enumerating the PCI bus.
  • OpenCore Legacy Patcher ver 0.2.3 now has a nice GUI front end to patch system volume.  Non metal graphics acceleration patches still working for nVidia Tesla (eg GeForce 8600GT) and AMD Terascale 2 (eg ATI HD 5770).

In fact it was very strange : I shutdown the pc , swap the 2 8 Gb stick .. and voilà , the Bios sees 16Gb et MacOS too.

Was able to update by creating a usb stick installer. Update downloads and goes through the motion of installing, says it's installing with countdown, restarts and still at 11.4.  Had to do the same for 11.4 as well. Any ideas why?

I downloaded the update but I can't install it, I'm in clover 5137, and added -lilubetaall to my boot arguments but the update starts and then reboots to install macOS Big Sur from reboot and stays in a loop...

The update never progress stays in the same place...

Is necessary to add new boot arguments?

Thanks

I didn't use any arguments.. check your SIP in config.plist and terminal... enable it via recovery if it was disabled..

Thanks for your suggestion @LIMITANT, but it didn't work .... yet...

 

Check Misc/ SecureBootModel in config.plist and make sure it is set to Disabled also Disable TPM in BIOS until installation, worked for me to get over boot loop. Good luck.

Afaik, 11.5.1 update installs just the same way as 11.5 (and previous versions) did; same bootloader version (in my case, Clover r5133 and/or OC 0.7.0), same boot args, same config, same kexts, etc.

To be honest I really wasn't going to be bothered with this latest version of BS as the release of Monterey is not too far away (hopefully) but with nothing better to do I decided to go ahead and do a clean install with a nightly release of OC (living on the edge as usual). Must say install was trouble free from start to finish.

I had the same issue. But I'm using OC 0.72. Would get caught in a reboot loop on the third restart of the update.  It managed to fix itself somehow.  I rebooted into 11.5 recovery and reinstalled 11.5 over the messed up 11.5.1 and strangely enough was updated to 11.5.1!

Reboot into recovery 11.5 and reinstall over the same drive.

For whatever reason, 11.5.1 would not show up in software updates no matter what.  I tried the suggestion of reinstalling macOS in recovery mode and it updated to 11.5.1.  It took significantly longer to install using this process but otherwise, it worked perfectly.
