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 :)
Hi,
If you have NUC6I7KYK, could you please provide EFI.zip that works for your Catalina installation?

Does anyone could help me? I installed OSX Catalina and everything is almost ok, when I try to build and install EFI I stuck wtih some issue after rebooting, my loading progress goes almost to the end and I see the black screen. I was waiting for 10 more minutes and no result. I use UEFI Boot, so, the system is booting ok from the usb drive and no booting from ssd' EFI

And the second one, is there good driver/solution to get MT7551 WiFi dongle working. I downloaded some different files from the Internet and this forum, but nothing worked for me

Hello,
I have NUC6i5SYK with latest BIOS 0072 because i couldn't find the 0044.
Can you please provide an EFI Zipped directory ? or the 0044 BIOS ?

Because i was on BIOS 0042 before updating, I have completed the installation and Pre-boot (Completed the second stage of installation successfully), But getting stuck on the booting OS from HDD/SDD.
With the following error in the attached screenshot.

Hello Folks,

I have a NUC6i5SYH I've installed Catalina on with OpenCore but after finishing the installer it will not boot. Does anyone have a working Catalina EFI?

Thanks!

Do you have success in installing Catalina in this Skylake NUC using OC? I tried but it goes into kernel panic in the early stage of macOS install, right after OC finish its boot process.

I then turn to Clover using Unibeast, and it can run Catalina 10.15.6 using Clover5119. However, I cannot have digital audio through DP/HDMI, even though I already using newest Lilu/WEG. Anybody here still use this Skylake NUC and willing to share its working EFI folder?

Thanks.

Hello @athos0512
Have you got any solution for this? I also experience the same, screen goes black after wake from sleep, aside from my digital audio not working.
If you happened to solve the problem, will be very glad if you are willing to share the pointer here.

Hi @johnnyx86

I tried to create a fresh new config.plist for my NUC6i3, but it still has kernel panic right at the start of the booting process. Here attached is the screenshot.
What intrigues me is, Catalina 10.15.6 works using Clover, yet digital audio not working yet.
Did you ever come into this panic as well? What did you do at that time?
It will be very helpful if you are willing to share your config.plist, though.

Thanks again. 20200718_155908.jpg.389ac208f225237936f21b0f50bdfdac.jpg
