Latitude 7490: unable to update to macOS Ventura

Hello guys,

    I have a Dell Latitude 7490 on which I've been running macOS Monterey for some months now.

    I tried to update to macOS Ventura with my OC 8.0 EFI and got stuck at a point.
    After that I read that macOS Ventura requires at least OC 8.2 so I tried updating my EFI to OC 8.5. This time it didn't freeze on the update process, it booted to macOS update and after that, when the laptop should have rebooted to macOS it got caught on a reboot loop.

    I could upload, if that helps, my EFI folder working in Monterey or the one that led me to the reboot loop, just let me know what would be more useful for you to give me a hint.

    Thanks in advance,

        VRdP

Go ahead and post your zipped EFI folder. If I understood you correctly, you've not made any change to your Monterey bootloader setup before trying to update to Ventura, right?

Hello Hervé, thank you very much for your prompt answer.

On the first attempt I did not make any changes to the EFI folder that was working with Monterey.
Then I updated to OC 8.5, which was able to boot on Monterey, but not for Ventura installation.
You will be able to download my original long tested and used OC 8.0 EFI from the following link (the link will be active for 7 days):

Thank you very much for any help you could provide me.
