Hi, Anyone have NVMe external icon patch for Catalina. I used Clover and OpenCore. Both still need patch.

I don't perceive any significant differences in boot speed between Mojave and Catalina.
Not sure what you mean by stops in between.

When installing:

Run Catalina install in a Mojave boot - install into a fresh new APFS drive - Reboot.
Select OSX install in Clover - reboot.
Select Catalina partition in Clover - reboot.
Select Catalina partition in Clover - system boots into Catalina.
Hi! What NVMe patch are you using in Catalina?

I am not sure I am using one.
SSD 960 EVO seems to work fine as is?

The 960 EVO shows as internal on my Mojave setup, and I don't remember addressing this issue in my Clover setup.


The Catalina-Data partition shows under "Locations" in Mojave finder sidebar,
and I can't remove it from there.

Hello friends,

I am an old user of this forum. I am thinking of updating my hackintosh (10.9.4) to Mojave or Catalina. Is there a small tutorial or from which post number.

Thank you.

I recommend you upgrade to Mojave. Catalina is .0 version that is still full of bugs, and it's going to restructure your drive. Additioinally, Catalina won't run 32bit apps. I always wait until at least the .3 update of macOS to make sure Apple gets the major bugs corrected.

BTW, get the GO64 freeware utility to identify all your 32bit applications so you can update them or get rid of them and find new ones that 64bit applications. See this article about more information on using GO54 and the 32bit application issue.


Finally, Mojave has mature UniBeast and MultiBeast. Use the tonymacx86 guide:
