Hi! Got a bit of a head scratcher for me. Looking for some advice. I decided to try and update my Hackintosh from Sierra to Catalina. With a few bumps in the road I managed to get it installed and running ONLY through the USB boot loader. I tried using Multibeast post installation as per instruction but once I get to the apple logo it loads about 60% of the way then just restarts all over again. Only way to stop is to hit F12 at the very beginning and choose the USB hard drive instead of the internal one. It loads up after that. I have a feeling its my graphics card causing the issue as I read somewhere that catalina might not be compatible with my graphics card. I figured I'd give the info and get some opinions on it. I'm also not sure what options to select in the multibeast as the options have changed since my original hack in sierra. Here are my specs:

GIGABYTE GA-H270-HD3 LGA1151 Intel H270 2-Way Crossfire ATX DDR4 Motherboard


Intel Core i7-7700 Desktop Processor 4 Cores up to 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 100/200 Series 65W


Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti Windforce OC 4GB GDDR5 128-bit PCI-E Graphic Card (GV-N105TWF2OC-4GD)


CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 AIO Liquid CPU Cooler, 120mm Radiator, 120mm Fan
