    Solved > Can not clone Catalina EFI partition

    I have used Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my Catalina installation to a larger SSD. I have copied the EFI partition in a variety of ways but nothing gets the clone to boot on its own either via USB or SATA. No matter how I install or copy the EFI partition from the original to the clone it boots...

    EFI reported full but it is not

    I have both Mojave and Catalina installed on separate SSDs. I am trying to add a kext to the EFI in Mojave and am unable to because there is apparently not enough space in the EFI partition. "About this Drive" shows the same size 200mb partitions for both Mojave and Catalina. The data in both...

    Catalina hates me

    I am trying to update to Catalina from a clone of Mojave. I posted a picture from verbose mode of where the process stops. In non-verbose mode the progress bar slowly and completely fills but does not ever reboot; I also do not see any flashing of the disc activity light. I also could not get...

    Sidecar redux

    I am running the final beta 10.15 (19A487m) which does not give the option for the Catalina supplemental update. Apart from sidecar everything works the way I need it to work, including messaging. I have the iGPU activated (the Intel and AMD GPUs are both listed in system report), 18,1 system id...

    Catalina invisible to UEFI

    Every installation USB key I make for Catalina is invisible to the UEFI. I have tried different brands of USB keys all of which worked with other versions of OSX. Every other bootable USB key, USB based SSD (e.g. my Mojave backup), Windows installation USB etc shows up as bootable in the...

    Can Not Install the 10.14.6 Update (Regular or Combo)

    I am unable to update to 10.14.6. The update initiates the install and reboots the computer. Whether I choose the default option, Preboot or Install Mac OS the same thing happens--the progress bar completes and the computer screen goes black. This is a Dell monitor and the warning "Enter Power...

    Freeze during 10.14.5 update

    When I apply the 14.5 update the computer reboots and the installer resumes but freezes on a screen showing 27 minutes left in the install. I have let it sit for a few hours but nothing changes. Prior to the install I updated to the latest version of clover. If I boot into Mojave everything...

    Unusual shut down problem and one other

    I have finally successfully upgraded to Mojave and earlier problems with dual monitors solved. Although Mojave shuts down correctly--the computer powers off-- every time I reboot into Mojave I get the usual warnings about how the computer did not shut down properly. When I used an nVidia card...

    Radeon 580 will not support second monitor

    I changed my GPU to a GB Radeon RX 580. The AMD drivers are pretty awful in Win 10 with erratic mouse and cursors, something that should be basic, cited as a known issue in the fine print accompanying the drivers on the AMD web site. Placing a cursor inside a word makes you feel like a reeling...

    [Solved] I think Windows altered the UEFI settings but I can't find what

    This has been a stably booting High Sierra Hackintosh essentially forever with everything working until the Windows side bit the dust. Reinstalling Windows on a Western Digital Black NVME drive initially failed but restoring from a recent system image has worked fine. Unfortunately I can no...

    nVidia Driver performance

    I posted this previously on the graphics forum but that does not seem much read. I have been using a Hackintosh and the tools on this great site since Snow Leopard days, mostly with nVidia GPUs, for the last few years a 970 and that currently in a fully upgraded High Sierra Skylake i7 and all...

    Nivida and Photoshop

    I have been using nVidia graphics cards with Photoshop and hackintoshes since Snow Leopard, currently a 970 all updated to the latest/greatest version of High Sierra. In my experience there has been a gradual deterioration of stability with successive versions of OSX and the nVidia driver when...

    nVidia update for 10.2.3 supplemental update now available

    Accidentally installed latest 10.2.3 supplemental update yesterday without realizing there was no nVidia update. Random check from nVidia preference panel just now found an updated driver that installed and worked.

    I got it to work but can someone explain

    Updating directly from Sierra to High Sierra failed catastrophically, probably my fault. I could only restore Sierra by wiping the SSD with Diskpart /clean (I know those commands better than OSX iterations). I finally succeeded installing a new version of High Sierra on a completely blank SSD...

    [Solved] Suddenly can not boot into 3 copies of Sierra

    Long but bear with me please: I had issues I thought I had resolved after a BIOS update which fixed problems on the Windows side. I could not get audio working after the BIOS update but I have a USB adapter which worked fine. As of yesterday I can not boot into Sierra which is installed on both...

    [Solved] Can not run nVIdia driver after BIOS update

    I have had a stable and stably updating configuration with Sierra. However today I had to temporarily remove the Sierra drive from this dual boot (win 10) machine and update BIOS to the latest version for an ASUS Maximus VIII mobo because of serious issues on the Windows side, now solved. I have...

    Successful upgrade Skylake system

    This may help others. Or not. I ran into a disaster updating my Skylake El Cap via the Unibeast installer. Twice (after restoring from a clone). The installation would not complete and the drive was not bootable with Unibeast. I had the bright idea to delete the Nvidia drivers. The update then...

    An error occurred while updating system extension information

    Using the latest Unibeast on a Sandy Bridge machine I was easily able to update to Sierra through the installer. The Sierra installation booted directly without even running Multibeast. I seem unable to restore audio but I can work on that later. However using the same Unibeast key on a Skylake...

    Direct update or update via Unibeast?

    I see 63 pages and counting about problems with the former and zero comments so far about the latter. I will simply say the direct update method failed for me, not looking for advice. Anyone have success updating via the new Unibeast? It took a long time to smooth out the details for El Cap on...
