Tried installing but i always get an error in the Niresh installer. the error is " Error allocating 0x116b8 pages at 0x0000000006f03000 alloc type 2 Couldn't allocate runtime area" My specs are MSI z270 pro-a i7 7700k GTX 1080. i tried in a different system with i3 8100 b360 gaming wifi and rx 580 and got a similiar error but different numbers but it still said couldn't allocate. Also tried using clean hard drives. Any way to fix this?

First - good job, it's incridible...
So, recently I was try install macOS Mojave and High Sierra on my Dell Inspiron 7559, but the Wi-Fi (DW1820) doens't work, for this reason I returned to Windows.
In your Hackintosh this driver will work?
Case this Hackintosh work perfectly, I compromise to donate for your project.
I read than drivers of NVidia doesn't supported anymore, it's truth?

Waiting your response, and once time, congratulations! 😍

Please can this be updated to the latest Catalina 10.15.2 or even 10.15.1? I managed to get 10.15 running off this Niresh Catalina installer but unable to update to 10.15.1... gives me a black screen. Have already updated the necessary kexts but still doesn't want to update to 10.15.1.

Hi I try to install Catlina on ASUS G170 Pro Gaming board. I have there 32GB RAM,  Samsung SSD 970 EVO 500 and  Win10 on one partition. I have one partition separate to install Catlina. All BIOS setup according the instruction except CSM which was enabled. I tried also disabled but no difference. 

When I boot from USB Catliba Boot page appears, scripts runs through and than reboot take place, it gets back to Boot bage, no Apple shows and Catlina is not booting.

Any advice?

This is an interesting release, and thanks for letting us explore Catalina Niresh!

Everything works pretty good so far when I try all the Mac apps. I had a couple errors such as signing into Apple Music with my account, but overall awesome. In fact a huge improvement for me is that quick view works again on jpegs with Catalina. Mojave worked on pdfs, but not jpg files and I had to open the jpgs with Photoshop - a PITA.

The only problem I had installing this release was when I ticked the install options, sometimes all of the options ticked automatically to the ON position. It was tricky to select only HDA audio without selecting Voodoo too, for example, and even then all the option boxes were ticked below that, but luckily were not a problem set that way and I have good audio, yay!

I see this is the Beta 2 and we are on 7 currently. They talk about cloning your Photos library in the notes, very interesting how they gather info.

Response from the author:

It has been update with the cuenf release version.

Hello and thank you for the release.

 

I am new to hackintosh but I saw that my computer meets the specs to run it.

 

To get this working, is there any special steps I need to take besides downloading the torrent and putting it on the USB drive?

 

Thank you!

Response from the author:

You may need to read the guide, it has all necessary steps to install Catalina.
