    [Guide] Install Catalina on the Dell Optiplex 7010 and 9010 Desktop PC

    I tried mapping and injections and ACPI patching and in the end I gave up. I am ok with Catalina on this machine I was just wanting to try it with OC and BS. I have Big Sur on 4 other real Macs, 2 unsupported with OCLP and 2 other 2020 Airs. I do use the 7010 as a main desktop Mac tho. Its quite...

    [Guide] Install Catalina on the Dell Optiplex 7010 and 9010 Desktop PC

    I followed this guide previously and had perfect 10.15.7. I was bored and wanted to try OpenCore and Big Sur. I had a working install but for the life of me could not get USB 3 to work. I gave up and clean installed 10.15.7 and went back to Clover and Catalina. I don't think this machine is...

    Thank you for the guide, it’s been the best Hackintosh I’ve ever had and I was around for deadmoo and JasMac. Really appreciate the support.

    Did not fix my AppleTV+, mine plays for a few seconds then crashes, I really don't care that much but I would like to be 100% working I hadn't even noticed as I never use it. Netflix working in Chromium based browsers. Edit: I used shikigva=256 and now ATV+ works perfectly.

    Careful about the SATA port selection. I only got SATA 2 speeds on the white one. I had to use the blue one to get SATA 3 speeds on my SSD.

    Upped to .6 with no incident. Music app seems slightly little less terrible. Probably last major update for the last X. :(

    I am doing this with a SATA 2TB Sammy QVO and a 1TB Rocket Q NVMe. Works great. I put in the x16 x4 port and get around 1300 R/W's.

    [Guide] Install Catalina on the Dell Optiplex 7010 and 9010 Desktop PC

    Anyone tried a beta of .6 yet? Does it break anything? My .5 install is quite stable and smooth and I'm guessing .6 is about to drop soon and am nervous about updating. I am also using the BCRMpatchram3 for BT and WIFI and don't want that to break either. I am probably going to setup a APFS...
