Also, idk if I'm late to the party, but macOS Catalina runs great on this machine. The only extra thing I had to do was add the 'Change EC0 to EC' patch to Clover config.plist.

I also upgraded mine to Catalina 10.15.1. It runs good then crashes (reboots after around 15 mins). I have updated my kext files and still have the issue. When on Mojave 10.14.6 it never crashed on me. I used sakoulas detailed guide when installing Mojave on this machine. Did you run into any similar issues when you upgraded to Catalina?

Thanks...

Hi there,

I have not upgrade to catalina yet. I will wait one more month to make sure that the OS will be more stable.

Most likely you need newer version of clover, the clover modules and kexts. How many monitors do you run with the computer and which exact model is it?

Also you can follow the first post on this thread to configure it since it is reported that it runs stable on catalina.


Lastly use https://github.com/black-dragon74/OSX-Debug and attach the output to see if there is some type of obvious problem.

@sakoula I need to run agdpfix. and have patched the port in clover.
start with one screen, once system loads, switch on second monitor.

Hi @miguel41 thanks!

So the only patches you have related to gpu are: 'Prevent AGDP from loading' and '10.11.4+-SKL-port_0x7-DP2HDMI' in the config.plist and the agdpfix from https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/black-screen-with-macpro-6-1-or-imac-15-or-imac-17-system-definition.183113/ right?

Thanks again!

An advice to all who plan to keep on using their HP 800/600 G2 TWR for a while: exchange the 280W power supply with the HP original 400W and add a small RX570. You can get an used card and the power supply for less than 200 bugs, works from Sierra to Catalina nearly perfect.

Perhaps someone here can give we an advice on how to get real S3 sleep. That's the only thing which is not working. Monitor off during sleep is perfect, also wakeup and power down. pmset -g assertions does not point to a root cause.

Hi. I am trying to install catalina on my EliteDesk 800 G2 mini. Could anyone kindly share the config.plist file for booting clover please. I am unable to load installation as I get kernel panic.

config.plist and the list of kexts would massively help.
