I wasn't able to boot with Clover with FileVault so have been using OC but gave this a try and that was the fix - wow! thanks. I had to disable SIP to be able to install the latest Clover on Catalina.

Clover boot handles HiDPI. I tried various options of OC but never got HiDPI working.

Before your suggestion, I was getting stuck on the Apple Logo screen forever. Never got to the point like other people where there was a delay of 2-5 minutes.

After following your suggestion, I no longer get stuck on the Apple Logo screen, in fact it boots at the same speed as it used to on Mojave.
CodeDJ, are you using VirtualSMC instead of FakeSMC ?

I tried switching a while back but had some issues so went back to Fake.

What efis/kexts are you using ?

I want to give another go, but this time on a fresh ssd :)

Stevegut78,

I have the exact same setup as you. Did you have to update any files before installing Catalina?
Sorry just saw this. I just did the usual kext update. Only had a few kexts that needed updating. Clover was already at the latest.

It works for me with both VirtualSMC and FakeSMC but I have a new problem. It doesn't go to sleep after inactivity. I am able to put it to sleep and wake it. Also, it wakes every half an hour or so and then goes back to sleep in less than a minute - as though power nap is on which I don't.

Mojave used to work fine with FakeSMC. With OC, I switched to VirtualSMC and carried it over to Clover recently. Will try going back to FakeSMC to see if that fixes the sleep issues.

Attached is my EFI (cleared out SMBIOS - empty dict, MLB - empty string).

UPDATE: Sleep is working fine. My PC went to sleep after inactivity. Also, looks like the Energy Saver settings got reset somehow and had power nap on.

Hi, does anybody know why Apple releases every year a new os ? It seems to cause a lot of chaos and irritation each year.

Kind regards

When I first updated, I had issues with Sound and other hardware. So I had to update my kexts. Then I decided to format my HardDrive and installed Mojave. I added the updated Kexts, and I ran update. My sound and other issues were fixed except for the lines in my boot. But the lines issue was fixed with updated WhateverGreen kext. My advise is if TonyMac isn't offering updated Kexts than be careful with the one you find online.

I fresh install Catalina. But I don't like it. I deleted and install Mojave again. I don't like that;
1-File system very solid. No change anything.
2-New iTunes (called Music).
3-Can't use Office 2011 for Mac. And many 32 bit apps.
