Hi,

So I have downloaded catalina and created a usb boot disk using unibeast.

Trying to install on an Acer swift sf514-51 i7 with intel graphics - not many bios settings to tweak.

Created an hfs+ partition to install to using linux gparted

I can successfully boot into clover and choose the usb osx installer option.

The installer then hangs showing the apple log.

I added the verbose boot option, and get the attached output.

Tried some other options in clover space bar menu for usb osx installer, output sees the same.

One concern I have is the EFI partition is only 100MB, but expcted to get further through the installer process before hitting that issue.

No idea how to progress this - do the error codes mean anything to someone?
