Good job!
  • First make a bootable backup! :) You must know I was going to say that...
  • Then yes it's okay to update to latest Lilu, WEG, and AppleALC.
  • Because you're running VirtualSMC, please check the CLOVER/UEFI/drivers folder to make sure SMCHelper.efi is not present. If it is, remove it.
I can't thank you enough CaseySJ once more time!
Without you I couldn't get so far with my latest builds!
I hope you have good health for you and your family these difficult days!
Best Regards
Marios

I want to buy Noctua D15 for my build but I will need to put my graphic card to the second pcie slot. Would it cause any stability problem ?
Do you recommend 2x16gb or 4x8gb ram and 2666mhz is the best for the stability ?
Use the Noctua NH-D15S

@CaseySJ Can I save with Carbon Copy with your guide?

Source my SSD NVMe ----> Target LaCie hard drive ?

Or it is needed to have a SSD ? Thkx
The target can be a regular spinning hard drive. It can be any hard drive (SSD and non-SSD), but not USB flash disk.

Hello again guys and Thank you CaseySJ for all you are doing for us ,i was able to get rid of that pesky clover pre boot menu ,however i dont know what exaclty did it because as i was reading through our thread here i read all the catalina guides that you have been making for us and decided to re do my clover efi as described in the fresh catalina install guide ,i removed the third party kexts from Library /Extentions rebuild permisions and cache with kext utility and then build my efi exactly as shown in the fresh catalina install guide with two minor diffrences. for the AMD.plist i was already using the 19.1 smbios so i just copied over the board number and serial from my older plist made sure everything was the same in RT Variables ,and in the kexts/Other folder i replaced Lilu,Whatever Green and AppleALC with the latest ,i only have one issue regarding ethernet ,i cleared network preferences from library system configuration in order to double check but it seems one of the ethernet ports is not working i was using the i211 before but i switched over to the i219 because that one is not working now ,any ideas?

** EXTREMELY IMPORTANT **
Make a full bootable backup of Catalina 10.15.3 before attempting to install 10.15.4

There seems to be a high failure rate with the update to 10.15.4. It may or may not be due to WhateverGreen. Like COVID-19, we don't have a solution for it right now. Don't take chances. If you cannot make a full bootable back right away, do not update.

Don't think so... If you use an older Clover version, update it and everything will be good. XCPM in Clover is broken. Apple changed
CoreDarwin from 16 to 20 bit.

This is already enough for clover to quit the job.

@Elias64Fr
You gave me three files for the test: TB_Z170x-UD5_TH_AlpineRidge_on_board_Dump_patched_test0[1-3].bin
In the first file, you changed 6 bytes, in the second file - 10 and and the third file - 13 bytes.

Elias64Fr, CasySJ, what should be patched in the my original firmware and where to look for it? I read yours Thunderbolt DROM Decoded but there is a lack of information. I understand about time and desire, but I'm not asking for fish... give me please a fishing rod to catch it. :)

I do not have WEG installed because I do not like it and the piker black screen fix works perfectly for me. I also use Opencore and VirtualSMC. Long ago I noticed that if you have more than one monitor plugged in things act strange during an install/update. I also noticed that the older OC version that I was using caused some garbled text on the screen during install rather then the apple logo but the bar was there and keep moving forward.

@CaseySJ Is this an issue?

Good question:
  • If you initially used the Catalina Mini-Guide to install Catalina, then you're all set. Nothing more to do because all Hackintosh kexts are only installed in CLOVER/kexts/Other.
  • If you upgraded to Catalina from Mojave, you might have Hackintosh kexts in /Library/Extensions. Those should now be deleted, then rebuild kernel cache by running Kext Utility, and copy the kexts from Catalina Mini-Guide (Zip file attached to that guide) into your CLOVER/kexts/Other folder.
