I read an article on the next update of Catalina 10.15.4 will depreciate all kernel extensions. I have a test system of 10.15.2 that is working OK.
Could anyone comment about a pre-upgrade strategy that will mitigate problems.
It has been suggested that "If you use macOS, run kextstat | grep -v com.apple to see how many third party kernel extensions you have running".
I am more interested in the effects of booting than I am of some software programs not running.

See Post #2's bullet on moving the hackintosh kexts out of /Library/Extensions/ folder to the /EFI/.../Clover/kexts/other/ folder.

Thank you Stork. I forgot that I did read that a couple of weeks ago..getting old.
What effect do you think this will have on software?

In fact all third-party kexts in /L/E/ will be detected and warned by running
Code:
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

can I update directly from 10.14.6????

Just upgrade it from Sierra to Catalina 10.15.3

Followed the #2 post, replaced the kext to /EFI/.../Clover/kexts/other/, applied the port limit patch, and after 30 min or so, everything works as it should.

No need to revert to Sierra. Mojave can be directly upgraded to Catalina.

Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 9 - i9_7920X_LGA2066_12core_24thread - Radeon Vega Frontier Edition
Updated by means of System.app \ Software Update utility from 10.15.02 to 10.15.03 = Success

t0) Fenvi T919 wifi board BCM94360CD don't works with 10.15.03, it worked OOB well with last version 10.15.02.
Any idea? Please.


t1) t0 ENVI Problem solved:
The problem was that I had the ENVI card installed in PCIEX4_1 and that I recently added a new M2 disk in the M2M_32G slot. On the Aorus Gaming 9 motherboard, the PCIEX4_1 and M2M_32G slots share the data bus, and only one of the slots can be occupied at a time.
To re-operate the WIFI ENVI card I changed it to a new location in the PCIEX16_2 slot.

Now there are only one minor issue, SIDECAR doens`t work, any Idea?

Then put your WiFi card back where it was and put your new drive on this card in the slot your WiFi is in right now. Then you will be able to add 3 more drives with ease in the future.

Quite a smooth one. Updated lilu whatevergreen and appleALC, moved them to EFI/Clover/kexts/10.15, downloaded the update and after 2 reboots and one ... hang, my X79 is still in the front line.:thumbup:
Big thanks to the community as always.
(it would be great if these forum answers could be searched by Motherboard/CPU etc. So you can find out if any user with similar hardware had any problems with the update)

Upgraded my Asrock Taichi Z390 system from 10.15.2 to 10.15.3 without making any changes. Initially tries installing via system update which appeared to work but after the "update process" I was still on 10.15.2. I then tried installing from download and had the same problem. I finally realised the problem was that clover was not automatically choosing the correct partition for booting during the upgrade process. I then manually selected the clover boot sequence and the system upgraded correctly.

Everything is working after the upgrade without any additional changes being required.
