Hi

I'm trying to install mac os Catalina With OpenCore 6.1 on my new Crucial P1 Nvme

After preparing the BIOS and USB I started the installation process and when I select the target disk and hit continue the screen returns to the mac os utility without any error message.

Here is my spec
Motherboard: Asus Z490-E
Processor: I7-10700k
Graphic: Intel UHD 630 IGPU
RAM: 64 GB Corsair Rgb pro 3200mhz

Here Are My EFI File And a video explaining the problem :

You probably need to go into Disk Utility FIRST and format the drive to APFS. Once that's done you should be able to select it as the target for the install.

Last I heard Clover couldn't boot 10th gen CPUs, this thread is specific to OpenCore.

I tried installing opencore and when it boots into the USB it only shows the windows drive as an option to boot into. Anyone have any tips? Thanks!

Okay so I got it to populate by removing opencanopy and replacing it with hfsi and changing the boot in config to reflect it, but now I get about half way and it stops. I also changed mine to iMac 20,1 since I'm running the 10700k. Also I'm using vega 56 only, no other gpu is plugged in. Anyone have any pointers?

I finally got everything up and running. Only thing I'm having issues with right now is usb 2 and apple TV. We're you able to get those working? My usb 2 keeps going and in and out.
