    Can Anyone get the apple to ethernet adapter working in Big Sur for AVB Audio to work?

    OK, apparently I didn't read up. I was able to establish AVB on a MacBook Pro on Big Sur, but apparently my Dawkins has no hw support for thunderbolt, nor proxy-ish approaches.

    Can Anyone get the apple to ethernet adapter working in Big Sur for AVB Audio to work?

    Just bought an AVB-capable sound card as well and is interested in the same information. Will test myself when I get it and report results on my setup.

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Well, you seem to be running a non-hack-mac so you should disregard my sidenote and indeed anything I wrote as I can nor vouch for it to be relevant at all for factory macs...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Well, I don't have any particular advice. From what I read there seems to be several paths to that error message. The only thing I can recommend relating to Big Sur is to make a clean install and use the Migration tool, which worked really nice (almost) as I commented upon here. As a sidenote...

    [Resolved]Updating from Mojave to Big Sur, errors/unfinished update?

    It turned out that a clean install was the only way I could get things working. This was not too bad as I also found the migration tool which transfered user and settings without problem. There seems to be too much going on regarding security improvements in Big Sur to handle it the upgrade way...

    [Resolved]Updating from Mojave to Big Sur, errors/unfinished update?

    In another thread I was struggling with getting the EFI correctly setup and a boot file in root preventing parts of the installation process. Now having all that in place I started upgrading my Mojave installation to Big Sur. I have made several attempts with reformatting of destination disks...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Well not really. The update does not seem complete. Will make another separate post on that.

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Miracles to happen...with a little help. I read the error in post #18 and it indicated that the file "boot" in the root was causing the error. Well, I deleted it and ran yet another upgrade for Big Sur (actually i first made an attempt on Catalina but the result were the same and thought to...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Yes, I have a ethernet wire. The Wi-Fi has been turned off. Does that affect? Should I do Wi-Fi only?

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    I enclose one of the install logs from my Big Sur attempts. There is some elaboration as per below: "Jan 10 15:11:23 iMac OSInstaller[197]: Operation: Install Mobile Software Update failed, Failure Reason: Error Domain=com.apple.osinstall Code=-82 "An error occurred applying the software...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Mystery deepens even further (or may give some clues): I got corresponding errors trying to install Catalina, see enclosed images below... So regardless of Catalina or Big Sur I seem to end up with an error related to disks, again the Update assistant launches and asks me to select a startup...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Yes, got it (catalina). Will make that upgrade (hopefully uneventful) and make some further research when there is time available on OpenCore. I might just purchase another M2 memory and experiment with it on USB. I need my computer to be stable for work. Thanks again for taking time @pastrychef!

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    I see. OpenCore seems to be another leap which I doubt I will have time for right now. I would have been quite happy, I guess to settle for a Catalina upgrade, but it seems that I cant get it anymore. I was trying yesterday to get it from the US app store but it wasn't available. Is there a...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    This happens when there is indicated 18-20 minutes left of the installation. The macOs Update Assistant launches, works there for a while and then the message in the first thread entry appear. There is an option to select start disk manually, but when the HD is chosen (there is only one option...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Ok, understood but I still get the same error as in the first entry. But I will make another restore and upgrade attempt while keeping control of startup of Install partition until it is no longer available (as I interpret it). But its still odd, I think, that I get the "unable to set startup...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Alas, this config exhibited the same behaviour. Isn't it rather odd? I restored to the backup before I made a new update attempt, so there should be no funny things there. The only impact of upgrade attempts are the additional partitions HD-Data, HD and two instances of Update partitions. The...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    Here is the EFI which is installed now. Really appreciate you reaching out, @pastrychef!

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    So what may be causing this break in installation? Is the write lock not of significance?

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    @furion3000 commented as below in this thread which resembles both what I saw on screen during update process (e.g. Device is write locked) and the fact that I am using Samsung M2 disks. Could this be the culprit? If so, would one way to go about be to try to remove the from MB slot, insert in...

    Big Sur Upgrade: Unable to set startup disk in MacOs Update assistant (SDErrorDomain error 104).

    So after updating Clover to 5128 (see other thread, mostly SBK) I initiated Big Sur Update. With about 20 minutes remaining indicated, I get error message in image below. Update Assistant failed to restart with the startup disk given on screen, so I chose to restart the computer. On that restart...
