I tried using the regular Software update, but the Install Mac OS disk is not showing up. Haven't updated kext or anything, probably have to do it tomorrow to see if it works that way.

I'm still getting some weirdness at the end of the install where it says it failed to update due to something called a "Bless" tool.


@mhjeff,

"Bless" is a MacOS command line tool that flags a drive on a real Mac as bootable and/or as the default boot volume.

When a real Mac powers up the Apple EFI firmware looks for "blessed" drives, in most cases there is only one "blessed" drive so the EFI firmware will boot MacOS directly from it, if more than one "blessed" drive is available then the Apple EFI will offer a menu/selection similar to what Clover or OC does.

More info on the "Bless" command here :-


It's not really an issue if the "Bless" command fails on a Hackintosh system as we dont use the Apple EFI to boot MacOS. On a Hackintosh system we use Clover or OC to emulate the Apple EFI firmware which you can set as the default boot device in a PC's UEFI/BIOS.

Cheers
Jay

Buttery smooth 10.15.6 SU through System Preferences.
Updated & Backed up Kexts, whole process took 24 minutes.
Reboots to Preboot to start update --- @11 min Reboots to Preboot (rebuild caches, etc) --- @23 min, no reboot, straight to log in.
Manually Rebooted back into Main System Drive. All seems well.

Finally got around to doing the 10.15.6 update from 10.15.5. Downloaded the Update from the Apple site, launched it, saw it was rebooting and then went on with my day. When I came back up to the computer room it was at the login screen but after logging in I saw it was still on 10.15.5. So I sat down and tried again. I noticed on the 2nd reboot I had to manually select the Installer Preboot. Then the process went smoothly went no further manual intervention needed and it is now on 10.15.6. Clover 5019.

Major features run smoothly.
Have on minor issue with the Wifi dongle TL-WN823N when I boot the OSX, sometimes it goes on a loop connecting and disconnecting the WIFI until I change the USB where it's plugged in. Once changed, it works no problem, until next restart. I didn't feel that before the update, but maybe I'm missing something.
