Trying to install the Supplemental Update (around 1GB for me) is causing an unending amount of frustration for me. The hack just reboots right back into Catalina without installing it. What am I missing? I’ve updated to the latest Clover build, and tried manually selecting “install macOS” from the boot loader menu.
I really want to update to 10.15.1 beta 1, and I had that downloaded but it’s the same problem - it just reboots without installing anything. Please help!!

Watch your machine on the first reboot. I now have to manually select “Install macOS from Preboot,” or it will automatically boot back into the old system without installing the update. Not sure if that’s what’s going on with you, but I amassed a few more grey hairs before figuring that out. That just started with Catalina, BTW. It always booted into the installer by itself with Sierra, HS and Mojave.

Thanks!! I finally got installed by tweaking my boot options, which I think is related to what you’re talking about. I changed my clover boot option for “Macintosh HD” to “LastBootedVolume”, and enabled SIP (changed 0x67 to 0x0). This time the supplemental update installed all by itself! I re-disabled SIP when I was done.

Thank you! Only issue now is that 10.15.1 Beta 1 is no longer showing up haha, but I can live with that.

Folks, for safety do not download any version of Clover except for tonymacx86 Clover builds or the original source file referenced in Feartech's link. As of now the current version is Clover_v2.5k_r5071. An update through Clover Configurator should be safe also.

Just updated Clover to 2.5k_r5096. The project has moved from Sourceforge to GitHub so the tools are not getting the latest versions anymore. You have to use the GitHub repo to download the latest release.

Yep, I found that out yesterday and posted about it in the Bootloaders section here. Sourceforge route no longer works and the 5071 DL only contains a text file referencing the new Github location.

Upgraded just fine here. Took a wee bit longer than I though for a 1GB upgrade.
