macOS 13.5 Update

Everything went smooth here, took only 8 minutes.
Hello guys,
I have just updated my RyzenPRO 9 5900X (OC 0.9.2) from Ventura 13.2 to 13.5.
This is still a testing environment on this machine because I am using Big Sur in production.

Update process took about 28 minutes with classic three reboots.

Testing will continue in the following days, but the system boot up at least. :)

Thank you!

Just to inform those still using Clover or old hardware.
No issues here updating to 13.5 using Clover 5151.

My Dell XPS 15 9570's Ventura has just been updated to version 13.5 from the previous 13.3. I have a multi-version setup with main NVMe disk with Monterey (production) and an external NVMe disk with Ventura (staging).

OC is 0.9.1.

I have to perform some tests to get confirmed everything is working properly.

Update process lasted in about 31 minutes including the download time.

Thank you.

A successful 13.5 update of a backup drive processed very quickly. The update download was 1GB. It never booted a separate macOS Updater volume.

After that, when requesting update of my primary drive, I saw a "Could not prepare the update" error, which I've never seen before.

I reset NVRAM as a hail-Mary and the update proceeded. The download was the same size, but took twice as long, with a separate bootable installer.

The main thing I've changed since my last update is migration of SMBIOS from iMac20,2 to Mac Pro7,1 and the addition of RestrictedEvents.kext to quiet messages about RAM config in About This Mac.
