macOS Catalina 10.15

If we can install it we could do all the necessary tests,there is no way to understand at what point it stops, at least we focus on that

I don’t think the problem is the Kext because even without it doesn’t start (Clover R4982)




I succeeded, macOS Catalina 10.15 Developer Preview 3/4 runs on LattePanda with Clover R4982-R5028 :yum:
macOS Catalina Developer Preview 3
macOS Catalina Developer Preview 4
EFI folder files (08-02-2019 update to Clover R5028)
Clover_v2.4k_r4982
Clover_v2.5k_r5028
Works with all kext and other updated files :grinning:

No problem but maybe it’s better to wait until September when Catalina will officially come out :+1:
I need your help, i can’t start the Developer Beta 5/6/7 anymore, i’m using Clover R5050 with Developer Beta 4, i am attaching the files of the EFI folder i used updated to today (08-20-2019) that you can download from here
The only files I can’t update are the ones that end with -64.efi, I don’t know where to look for new ones, downloading them from Clover they have a different name that doesn’t end with -64.efi, try to check yourself if I’ve done everything correctly

I have the Catalina released version running in a VM, which is great!

I subsequently tried the installation guides I could find here (and a mix thereof) but was not able to boot from USB into the installer.
The USB installer was a bit different than described in the posts. With the latest version of clover I did have to disable SIP in recovery mode first (terminal: csrutil disable) and after a reboot run it.

Did anybody succeed?
If so, would you be so kind to make the clover and kext files available?

i have catalina running

Thanks for sharing @BluDread for your response.
Great to hear you got it running on the LattePanda.
Which Clover version did you use, and which LP version?

I’ve been reading so many threads and posts, watching youtube videos etc., I want to rule out as much things as possible.
I’ll download your files and give it a go before this weekend.

i installed clover beta revision 5096 my LattePanda Alpha is with first m3-7Y30 processor

Thank you @BluDread for sharing your Clover folder.
I’m attempting a clean install and have create the latest version of the Catalina installer on a 32GB USB disk. The target 512GB Toshiba drive that is formatted during the installation process (GUID, Journaled).
With 2 minutes remaining before completing the first round of installation (after partition creation), the process stops for a reboot with the following log lines:

Oct 18 22:18:51 MacBook opendirectoryd[212]: [session] ODSessionRelease completed
Oct 18 22:18:54 MacBook osishelperd[637]: brtool exited success
Oct 18 22:18:54 MacBook osinstallersetupd[620]: Stash mode set to none, will skip.
Oct 18 22:18:54 MacBook osishelperd[637]: Boot chime muted
Oct 18 22:18:54 MacBook InstallAssistant[618]: Client of osinstallersetupd is not running in an Aqua session, forcing reboot.
Oct 18 22:18:54 MacBook osinstallersetupd[620]: Client side reboot failed, forcing reboot.
However, after reboot while starting from the newly created partition, the LP does not successfully continue the installation process. I will capture a log file from screen and post in a new message.

Aqua is the graphical user interface and visual theme of Apple’s macOS operating system. It was originally based on the theme of water, with droplet-like components and a liberal use of reflection effects and translucency.

Did anyone manage to upgrade from mojave to catalina using the mojave system updater?

yes I updated from Mojave to Catalina using the Mojave System updater first it stopt at the apfsloader but I use a patched DSDT H_EC entry to EC and then it went thru with loading the install partition and it reboots a few times it took about 26 min

Thanks Bludread, it was stopping a lot till i figured it out, now i managed to install it fine :smiley:

For some weird reason it was stopping when i had the mouse connected

hmm strange but glad you found it out :slight_smile: maybe the DSDT need some more patching I don’t know because I still have acpi errors at boot time

Thanks for sharing your Clover, does airplay work?

I don’t know if it works :frowning: don’t have ever used it .

Sidecar works, I installed an apple bluetooth wifi card, so I am not sure if it is required for it to work. You also need an apple id and icloud and compatabile ipad… but if you do it works :slight_smile: Today I will try to see if it can be used as a monitor without connecting it to a display.

I got a bit further this time using Clover 5097 and the folder BluDread shared.
After formatting the NVMe SSD and creating an APFS partition called “Catalina”, the files are copied and the LattePanda is rebooted by the installer.
During the 2nd boot I select in Clover “Boot from Catalina”.
The installation process proceeds, but after a very brief view of the Apple logo + progress bar, the installation halts with a few error messages.
I have uploaded the video taken directly after the Apple logo disappears to Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByYtxFQIY-D7eHR3WVNqeDN1UzctakFKT1dobDd2WE1mNGNN/view?usp=sharing
Suggestions and tips are welcome.
