Glad it went well for you!

Which drivers/EFI are you using?

My board is very close to yours and I'm having trouble upgrading from 10.14.6 to Catalina (with WEG/ Lilu, etc. of course), so it might be my EFI drivers?
It's a pretty vanilla installation, not doing anything special. Using the following Kexts (latest release versions) in /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other: AppleALC, AtherosE2200Ethernet, FakeSMC, Lilu, USBInjectAll, WhateverGreen, XHCI-200-series-injector (not sure if I still need this one??)

Here's my SMBIOS settings for my current build.

This build has been super stable for me.

Hi, maybe a noob question; do you copy your kexts to the new folder or reinstall them and delete the old ones ?
Kind regards, Michiel
When adding Kexts to /EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other, I just mount my EFI partition, and copy them into the "Other" folder manually.

For this upgrade, I deleted all Hacintosh related kexts from /Library/Extension, and rebuilt cache as instructed in Stork's post.

Hello,

Update via system preferences.
Blind update until last reboot... even with agdpmod=pikera

All seems to be ok.

Blender with radeon pro render run very very fast in viewport without artefacts :thumbup:!!!

I did as instructed, I updated my kexts and moved my /L/E/ folder kexts to EFI/clover/kexts/others, and then
updated my HP 8300 to 10.15.3. It was a smooth update with no issues at all. It took me about 10 to 20 min and done! :)

Backed up my 10.15.2 installation - of course. Checked my /L/E folder and found a duplicate FakeSCM kext (deleted), a deprecated internet kext (deleted), and an old IntelMausiEthernet kext (deleted). (I was impressed with myself as I had labeled these kexts when I installed them with a red dot so that I could easily find them later.) Put new IntelMausiEthernet kext in /EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other, updated FakeSMC, Lilu and WateverGreen kexts that were already there. Restarted and tested O.K.

Installed Clover 5103, restarted and tested O.K. Tried replacing FakeSMC with VirtualSMC, rebooted and boot failed. Restarted from my backup and restored FakeSMC. Tested and all was well again.

Ran update from System Preferences and after several restarts and waiting... waiting... waiting... success! Overall a pretty easy update. Someday I may try again with VirtualSMC, but I might just wait for my next Hackintosh build (in the planning stage) as I am a bit busy at the moment.

When you use VirtualSMC, you have two files: an .kext and an .efi Driver. Same as Fakesmc (whoch has beside the .kext ) also an SMCHelper.efi driver. Please use always only one bundle (.kext+ efi) never mix them and remove aways both (.kext + .efi) if you switch to other SMC method.
