Hi everyone. I'm trying to install mac os Catalina on my machine and getting various errors like acpi: error,etc. I would like to know even my PC is compatible in the first place? Would really appreciate some help.

The Quadro 2000 is based on the Fermi chip, which lacks Metal (Apple's graphics framework) support required in Mojave and Catalina.

So, no, your system as stated is not supported on Catalina. If you want to try, please first replace your graphics card with a Metal supported card, e.g. GTX 760 (old second hand), or the current AMD cards such as RX 580 or RX 5x00 series.

Thank you for your reply. If I do not inject nvidia driver during unibeast installer will it do the trick?

No, it won't, Catalina will simply refuse to install if it detects a non-Metal supported GPU. This happens on real Macs as well.

Even if you were able to somehow get Catalina to install, applications that require graphics support are very likely to fail. If you want Catalina to work, your only choice as I see it is to replace the GPU.

You may try an older version of MacOS which does not have the Metal requirement, say MacOS Sierra 10.12.6.
