Can you ensure us that this installer is vanilla? if you place kexts into /Library/Extensions it is not considered to be vanilla... you should place the kexts onto the EFI partition and place them into /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other to keep the installation vanilla.

The purpose of vanilla hackintoshing is to make it possible to use your MacOS installation on a real mac without any issues.


Users do yourself a favor and learn how to do a vanilla MacOS installer that boots on x86 non Apple Hardware/PC's learn how to use Clover or OpenCore (OpenCore is a must for AMD CPU's if you want to use 10.15.1 or higher) and you will experience a really well running system that doesn't crash and suffers from slowdown.


Do we know if this Catalina image is not tempered with? Is there any proof that there is no Malware in it? Is there any proof non of the files are altered and such?


I used your Mavericks Installer and it sucked it was so painfully slow same for Yosemite...

I want to test Catalina, but I have doubts that the video card (Nvidia GTX 1050) works. Does anyone know if it will be compatible?
