[pre-release] macOS Monterey

I guess this is one of the many times I'm thankful I follow this thread.

 

I was about to do the update to Monterey PB7 tonight (well, this morning now), so while waiting for it to download, I pulled up this thread and started reading.

 

I'm so glad I did, because afterwards I quickly updated to the latest build of OpenCore 0.7.4 (downloaded from Dortania), and this let me successfully complete the upgrade to beta 7 with no issues.

 

I'm very grateful for all the sleuthing of everyone who contributes to this thread, and I hope this will be the last hiccup before Monterey gets released (my theory is that Apple is holding it back for a hardware event next month).

Something is wrong with the Monterey Beta 7 Full Installer! Once downloaded it is only a 32MB stub file.

Source: https://mrmacintosh.com/macos-monterey-beta-7-update-21a5522h-is-live-whats-new/

 

So before I download the full installer, can someone confirm or disconfirm this?

 

I see there have been a couple of new 074 builds in the last couple hours. One addresses the ExtendedFirmwareFeaturesMask for Monterey. I will try that because I can't get that installer to run, no matter what I do. Tried all of the things suggested so far.

The I211 port is now working with the same old SmallTree kext file under Monterey ß7 on my MSI TRX40 Creator mobo. (The same file works with Catalina-BigSur-Monterey.)

 

The entire time it was broken was due to a macOS problem, not a SmallTree kext problem.

Hack MacBookPro16,2 with Secure boot set in config.plist ApECID=0 and secureBootModel=j214k

I got update b7 proposed to update.

But got this error below. OC bug or bad config.plist ?

No, you can't say that. Apple has no obligation to seed installers that suit the hacking community.

Actually we can - True Apple has no obligation to satisfy the needs of the Hack community, but this has happened before in a previous OS X Beta version even to the disappointment of Genuine Mac users who wanted a standalone installer instead of this kind of update. If I remember correctly it caused a tremor in the Mac community to the point that pushed Apple to quickly released a version that could be used on a USB drive.

I got the full installer because I got the sparse image with munki / macadmin-scripts. (At that time)
Intaller.app is broken, but the contents are elsewhere in the sparse image and copy it to correct app-contents.
Then it is worked.

 

% curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/munki/macadmin-scripts/main/installinstallmacos.py && sudo /usr/bin/python installinstallmacos.py --raw --seedprogram DeveloperSeed

 

Thank you

SharedSupport.dmg  ,  SharedSupport   is not present 😑

My result also - No matter how we twist and turn this latest Beta 7 to build on an installer stick, I don't think it was pushed to be a stand alone installer unless it is a massive bug by Apple.

In my Install_macOS_12.0-21A5522h.sparseimage

->Applications->InstallApplications->Install macOS Monterey beta.app->Contents->SharedSupport->SharedSupport.dmg

 

Anyway, I will try again here as well

Just tried again, nothing, wrong path?
Maybe I need to show the GreenPass to get the full installer? 😆

Clean install using USB installer. Install time 30 min.

Tips to repair Install Monterey App.

1. Open package content of Install Monterey App

2. Create SharedSupport folder

3. Open Install Assistant.pkg wit Better Zip and extract SharedSupport.dmg

4. Copy contents of SharedSupport.dmg and paste it to the folder created in step 2.

That's it enjoy.

Here, too, the installer works in the USB

I use Clover and to complete the installation I have to do it with SMBIOS iMac17.1

Can someone share ShareSupport.dmg ? The InstallAssistant.pkg is around 10Gb, I think I can't try with this. It took over 10 hours to download it via Software Update because of the bad situation of internet connection.

Thanks for this workaround! I tried a similar thing with Pacifist, but it didn't show the SharedSupport.dmg. With BetterZip it worked.

Download it with ANYmacOS and then apply the workaround.
