Just curious if you have this working 100% with MacPro6'1.

Setting up the USB drive now. Should be interesting to see how everything works. Id like to go back to Monterey full time.


I am all installed. Doesnt seem to be any issues as of right now. Everything was smooth. Thank you @taskrov for the incentive to test it out. Also I am on OC 0.8.0.
awsome, can you share your EFI folder here?

I used the same one that @taskrov posted. All I did was use the python script to add the system information and add the updated OC file(s)

Check and see if this helps?


Yeah I read a bit further in and see others with that whole NULL thing. You can see if any of the fix work. Or just submit the info they need in hopes of a future fix.

No issues on my end after a few weeks of running it. Updated as normal. I tried using the featureunlock kext to add sidecar and all that but its not worth it. Its slow, buggy and the kext will eventually lead to an unrecoverable bootloop. So yeah the features were not worth it. All in all the system runs pretty smooth on my end. Another year for this little machine.

Hello,

Maybe a more general question, but if I have Catalina running successfully on my HP 8300 , and I wanted to replace my internal HD with a bigger one, what steps would I need to do? Can I connect the bigger drive while the current drive is also plugged in and then and simply clone to the new drive?

That is how we do bootable backups.
