Hi Jake,

Thank you very much for advise, ECDV was the cause, Catalina upgraded with same Mojave Folder.. But i have weird issue now.. every reboot i have to try 3 times to boot into system, like screen goes black after acpi message, i have to force shutdown and try 3 times to boot. i am not sure whats going on? does anyone have same issue please help.

i have all my kext updated and are still in C\K\O Folder, should i move all of the kext to L\E?

Are you sure it's just black screen. Do you see SSD activity?

Try shining a flashlight to the display, see if you see anything faintly?


Strange your system just shows "MacBook", not MacBookPro15,2 like the SMBIOS you're using.

Try enabling in the Config under kextToPatch "DellSMBIOSPatch"
