I followed this guide to install Mojave. After, when all was working, I make a backup system using CCCloner.

Finally, I updated my system to Catalina with the Mac OS installer from System Preferences. All works again!

Is support for this dead? Looks like all Rehabman support has gone away. Want to know before making any more changes or updates.

Got 3 years out of the NUC so not a bad run.

I have successfully installed Catalina on my Skull Canyon. Got into some trouble when I was trying to install Clover after the install. It could not mount the EFI, and the scripts from Rehabman would not complete as they should.

I ran this:
sudo spctl --master-disable
sudo mount -uw /
killall Finder

Ran the scripts again + the Clover installer, and it worked. Thought I should mention it in case anyone runs into same problems :)

I noticed that I had to add the kernel flag -disablegfxfirmware or mine would constantly fail updates following 10.14.4, is there a reason for this and did anyone else notice on their skylake nuc?
