I'm trying to upgrade to Monterey straight from Catalina on this motherboard.
I've updated Clover (I've quickly tried to go OpenCore but I don't have much time to learn and understand the changes I have to make, so big fail here, went back to Clover...) to the last version. But I hit an error message at install: "a required firmware update could not be installed".
I read on this forum some users would change their SMBIOS as a workaround, mine is iMacPro1,1 atm.
I have literally no brain and the easiest solution is always where I go. Do you think this SMBIOS workaround would work, and if so, what should I set it to?
Monterey won't boot unless you've got at least an SmUUID in your config.plist. You should populate all the serials too.all those fields were blank
LOL, so quick to answer! Thanks for that, and by the way thanks for your original post which helped me a lot getting my hackintosh to work neatly on catalina !
So, when I checked SMBIOS in my Clover Configurator, all those fields were blank. IDK if I should "generate new" ?
EDIT : OK maybe I shouldn't have but I generated new values for those... it didn't affect anything, good or bad, same error message after restart.
That's what I already did. However, I did it again to be sure, saved, rebooted, checked that everything was still there. Only thing that is blank now is "SMBIOS Version" field; IDK if that's relevant.
I re-launched the update from System preferences, computer reboots, then same error.
