  • fantomas changed the title to [pre-release] macOS Monterey

It seems like most of the changes are designed to make Macs more interoperable with other Apple devices.  I'm sure that means some significant changes under the hood which might make our current OC or Clover partitions incompatible.  I always love following the developers and coders in our community tackle these issues with speed and imagination.  Let this year's race to install Monterey begin!

Looking forward to the yearly cycle of hacking the beta to work on our hacks… I wonder how much (or how little) changed under the hood.

I ran through the install process and everything looked surprisingly good and normal through the initial setup and the first reboot.  However, just before the second reboot, I saw a message in the boot log that said "SMC not supported on this platform."  I could not boot after the system restarted.  If that means what I think it means, we may have a pretty fundamental change in the way we boot up.

 

EDIT:  Never mind, see below.

Ok, so a new background and new Safari. The Intel HD4000 driver is gone. The Intel Power Gadget still works, so no changes regarding third-party kexts.

Got it to boot, but had to use lilubeta and whatevergreenbeta, otherwise it booted to a black screen.  

 

All in all, a much smoother process than the Big Sur fiasco last year.  I guess this is just Big Sur with some new paint and wallpaper and safari browser.  Kudos to the opencore developers (and Apple?), as this is the smoothest Beta1 in a long time...

Also this

The video card is not detected by the info

Montenery perhaps because the first beta does not detect the video card on the information

Well I 've got my installer USB all prepped and ready to do an install on a test disk but waiting on a few successful install posts before I take the plunge and then again if it all goes south, it will be only be a test disk after all and not my day to day installation. :angel_not:
