Wait is a 32gb usb required, since on my desktop I used my 16gb usb and it worked with no issues, and how I made my installer?


We begin at the App Store, I downloaded big sur, and I used the mountefi found on dortania github. Then put all my edits stuff there, then booted.


Tomorrow after my school I have the weekend, so will have lots of time to work on this.


Thanks

what process did you do to transfer the macOS installer on your stick?

going by your image on the previous page, it is trying to download the installer from the internet

Hello!

I have got MacOS Catalina to install on that laptop, no wifi working though, which means that I need to install the itlwn kext and the other files for it, I will need to figure out how to install that.

I am pretty surprised that I have gotten this far, thanks for your help @Feartech.

Enough of my rambling,
Thanks,
Rye

well done on your installation :)

the only place I know off is:

there may be some user's in the laptop guide section that may have used them:

also i think @Sniki may use them in builds:

just as an example:
