Inspiron 7537: unable to update to Catalina 10.15.1

Recommended Posts

Does your current drive dual boot with Windows? 

If so, Windows default EFI partition is 100MB, MacOS requires 200MB.

Hey Jake, welcome back!

Erhm..., I only installed Catalina to my SSD, nothing else. 

I cannot figure out whether the installation of Clover fails because I booted up in safe mode, or that is actually the Clover installer is the culprit. There are reports of it crashing on 10.15.1 during installation with r5098. 

I may as well did it again, but do you think that switching to FWRuntimeservices.efi+OCQuirks.efi instead of any AptioFix.efi would cause the booting process stuck at the apple logo with the loading bar?

ok, sounds like SafeMode is causing the Clover installation issue.

FWRuntimeservices.efi is for OpenCore, not for Clover.

 

Try installing Clover from here

Try booting with verbose + debug 0x100 mode to determine the boot issue

Try -igfxvesa too if it's a graphics issue

I know. I mean that FWRuntime... is for OpenCore, but I was told that AptioMemoryFix and similar are deprecated now, and OcQuirks+FW should take their place instead. All according to its GitHub: https://github.com/ReddestDream/OcQuirks

 

I am not trying to sound impudent or all high and mighty, I am just sharing my experience. 😅

 

I blocked the following kexts: ACPIBatteryManager, BRCMPatchram3, BRCMFirmwarerdata, BRCMBluetoothinjector, AirportBrcmfixup. I added the -igfxvesa boot argument, as debug 0x100 had already been added, as you said and it stopped here. It doesn't seem obvious what the problem is, to me at least 🙃:IMG_20191118_232721.thumb.jpg.cb8788724ab2cd51ac079853577f5215.jpg

Oh, well... It was fun at least while it lasted. I have no way of modifying the files on my USB. And I have no way accessing another computer easily while trying modifications.

 

I guess I am turned back to Windows for now. No problem here, I am eyeing with an XPS 9570, maybe better luck with that.

 

Thank you for your help guys with this machine, I am sure it may be helpful for others with this config in the future. 😅
