Upgraded to 10.15.

Issues:
- Black screen after last boot. Solved by adding injection for AMD drivers (don't necessary before on 10.14)
- No sound on motherboard. Not solved. Have all new kext installed. Have HDMI sound - so, for now it's ok.
- Lost Intel bluetooth on motherboard. Not solved. On 10.14 I have run Win10 in Parallels once after each boot to initiate BT from motherboard. Now it doesn't help. Have all USB ports. BT is visible in sysinfo. Decided to by USB BT adapter.
- Google Chrome doesn't working anymore AFTER NEW UPDATE FOR 10.15 (near to 1 Gb download). Not solved. Crying. Any suggestions?

are you using dual monitor? when i connect both of my monitor, i cannot get past the grey screen, but when i disconnect one(my TV), it was fine, language choosing dialog showed up, and the installation work fine

Hey thanks for the reply, I only have one displayport monitor, so not sure about that.

The other odd thing is even with a fresh catalina install it presents a boot filevault from preboot option, even though I installed it on not-encrypted apfs

Supplemental update installed - had to select 2 or 3 times the boot from install... option myself, but other than that, no problems.
right, must be a clover issue (using 5096 version) i selected manually boot from install until it's removed from boot options and works.

it happened to me too, only one monitor working, later to find out that none of the kexts were loaded, solved it by doing a restart

The update process was identical to a real Mac. Sidecar was even more easy to start than on a MacBook Pro.
