    Update Directly to macOS Monterey

    If I were you I would consider switching to Opencore as others have said. The initial setup takes a while. I followed a great tutorial by Chris Titus. Once I created my Opencore USB stick I installed Catalina and it went without a hitch. While I was messing around I then changed my model...

    Big Sur Update - Lenovo M83SFF Question

    That doesn't surprise me at all. Maybe it is time to start looking for some new hardware lol I actually have a Dell Optiplex 3060 SFF with an i7-8700 that I use as my main Windows machine. I might make an image of the main disk and play around with Opencore. These Optiplex's seem to be another...

    Big Sur Update - Lenovo M83SFF Question

    OK seeing I was on a roll I changed the model identifier to Macmini7,1 downloaded Monterey, created a USB installer and promptly installed it. I am gob smacked it was so easy.

    Big Sur Update - Lenovo M83SFF Question

    Perfect Thank You, That is what I read on the Opencore tutorial. Is there anything else that needs to be done to the config.plist or can I just go ahead and update directly from the settings menu in Catalina?

    Big Sur Update - Lenovo M83SFF Question

    Hi All, This afternoon I had some time so I thought I would go through the Opencore tutorial and install a fresh version of Catalina. I completed this successfully with only a few issues that I fixed after googling them. I now have a fully operating Catalina 10.15.17 - The Opencore tutorial...

    I found out what the issue was, Determined not to be beaten by this I looked at what was different with my M83SFF running Catalina and this M93P and then it hit me, On the M93P I had it connected to a spare monitor via a regular VGA cable and on my M83 I was using a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter...

    No worries, I appreciate you taking the time to reply. I only ever see the install Catalina option. I have let it reboot multiple times but the same thing happens. I am pretty sure I used your guide on my M83 SFF and that worked first time. I will look into the GibmacOS option

    Well I am at a bit of a loss, When I brought the machine (M93P Tiny, I5-4570T, 8GB RAM) it had a BIOS from 2018, I tried the latest BIOS and even downgraded last night to the 2016 BIOS recommended at the beginning of this thread. I have adjusted all the BIOS settings mentioned here and in other...

    This was using the EFI from the opening post on this thread using clover and not OpenCore. Does the information you suggested still apply to Clover?

    This is what I see, the progress bar gets roughly half way and it reboots

    Sorry I just did a search, I should have done that first. Trying to do too many things at once today. I will give this a try shortly
