Hi there guys, I'm currently on an Hackintosh High Sierra (10.13.6) and I want to upgrade my OS (mainly because Adobe is not updating their products on High Sierra).

I'm thinking about doing a clean install. So after I've done my boot usb drive with Catalina and when I select to start from Instal macOS Catalina it gets stuck on apple logo without progress bar and that before install...

What am I doing wrong?

My specs:
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370M-DS3H
CPU: Core i7-8700K
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H60
Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 1070 SC Black 8Gb
PSU: Corsair RM Series RM750x - 750W
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LED 2 x 16 GB

your graphics card is not supported in Catalina

Oh!

What about Mojave? Or I should be stuck with High Sierra?

Or should I change my graphics card? If that's the case, all of those on the buyers guide are supported in Catalina?

High Sierra will be the latest with your nvidia

or remove it and use your internal graphics and you can use Catalina
