Hello everybody
I'm new, and I try the adventure with an HP Z220 CMT, E3-1225 v2 3,2GHz Nvidia Quadro K600,
I followed the guide "Install macOS Catalina on Any Supported Intel-based PC" and my installation does not pass the step 5, I use verbose mode and I discover that the CPU and PCH is not compatible.
Can someone please tell me what to do next?
I already saw this Z220 operated under High Sierra for a test 2 years ago I think, it must be compatible I think?
thanks a lot for your help

I did a clean install of Catalina and struggled mightily with the WIFI for a few hours. I have a TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 card and it acted like it did not exist. I installed both IO80211Family.kext and AirPortAtheros40.kext in System/Library/Extensions using KextBeast without success. Finally, I installed IO80211Family.kext in the other location as well, and FINALLY the WIFI popped up. Perhaps I was supposed to install the kext in both areas from the start and misunderstood the directions. This guide was very helpful:


Everything else is working perfectly. Thanks tonymacx86 for all you and your colleagues do!

If so, why would my question be categorized under Catalina Desktop support?
Any questions about installing Catalina on a desktop should go there. Even if you're trying to start the process on a PC.

The mods are often curt when it comes to stuff abound the rules. It's just meant to get you off to a good start. :thumbup:

Is your comment in response to my question about creating a bootable unibeast USB drive on a PC? Was that a non-permitted troubleshooting question? If so, why would my question be categorized under Catalina Desktop support? Thanks very much, just not clear to me whether I need to repost in another forum.
It's directed primarily at those with troubleshooting questions about the installation. If all you have is a Windows PC we don't currently have an option for you. You need a Mac or working hackintosh to create your Unibeast installer.

So I'm struggling with my current build
Post in Catalina Desktop Support not here. Not a support thread. You'll also need to fill out your hardware profile before getting any help.
