Hello there! I'm following your topic. Everything is very good. I have a question. How do I get the F_USB2 port to work? Is it possible?
Thank you in advance.
OC 0.6.5

Yes, you can configure the USB ports any way you like. Please see the following guide:

You have to set the boot drive in in BIOS.

Have you finished installing macOS yet?

OK, I have power again...

From the 3rd image in #3,566 above, double clicking on Boot Sequence takes me here:

It actually says OpenCore next to the cursor. Clicking on OpenCore and holding the mouse button down shows this:

Does this mean that the USB device is not set as the Boot Device? Not sure what to do next...

In order for it to be seen as a boot device, you need to have a working EFI in the EFI partition of a drive.

@flatlander48 : Did you follow PC's instructions on how to "Create Your USB Installer And Install macOS"?


You have to use the createinstallmedia command. When you do it correctly, your flash drive should be automatically labeled "Install macOS Catalina" or something like that. It looks like you just simply copied over the Installer application?

When I did a Cut & Paste of the sudo command, it returned Command Not Found.

I found createinstallmedia in the Resources folder when I did a Show Package Contents of the Install macOS Catalina file and dropped it into the Terminal window. The result is the grayed area.

Not sure what "This tool must be run as root" means...

try with adding quotes like:
Code:
sudo "/Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia"
and then add the rest of the code

Can't say for sure what I did, but I'll do it again and see what happens...

Please see link below for Apple's instructions. When done, copy your EFI folder to the EFI partition of your USB Installer.
