    Be aware that your HD5770 will never work again on 10.14 and higher, at least nobody didn't figurate out yet why it does not work. About your Intel HD 3000, re-check.

    Disable SIP before running the installer. Change Log: Added the Atheros Support for macOS Catalina. Added macOS detection for necessary file installation. Backing up the original IO80211Family.kext for macOS Catalina to desktop. Known issues: No 5GHz network detection. Rebuilding system caches with SIP enable ends up with errors. After each major macOS Catalina update you may need to run the installer.

    dosdude1 Alright, so for those who were wondering, myself and @parrotgeek1 have been working on this acceleration issue on our own, and have come to the conclusion that it is not going to be possible to achieve graphics acceleration on non-Metal video cards in Catalina. This is for various reasons, but the main one is the SkyLight and CoreDisplay dependencies. In Catalina, SkyLight and CoreDisplay have been changed greatly, and are interdependent on each other. Meaning, if you replace one from an older version of macOS, you must replace the other, otherwise you'll be left with a ton of unresolved symbols. The problem with doing this, though, Catalina's AppKit relies on all the new functions present in the Catalina CoreDisplay framework. You cannot use a copy of AppKit from an older macOS version, without causing a ton more unresolved symbols.TLDR, based on this analysis, non-Metal GPU acceleration is not, and will not be possible on 10.15 Catalina. With that said, I will not be releasing the "usual" patcher for 10.15. I do not believe the general public should be using a copy of macOS without full graphics acceleration (I sure as heck know I wouldn't want to), and I'm not going to release a patch that results in extremely poor system performance for the end user (not to mention I would get thousands of complaints per day about it if I did).I will, however, more than likely make somewhat of a "cut down" patch, designed for use only on Mac Pro systems and some iMacs that have had their video cards upgraded.I'm as disappointed as you all are about this discovery, and deeply apologize I won't be able to provide a patcher because of it. bom, acredito que uma das grandes vertentes deu uma desanimada, André.

    @andrehtm When you install macOS Catalina, it will create two (2) separated "read-only" partitions in the same APFS container, one for system files and second for data files. The first one (system files) is named Macintosh HD and the second one (your data files) is named Macitosh HD - Data, which is hidden by default. Finder will only show Macintosh HD partition with the traditional folders (such like System). If you want to be able to write on these partitions, SIP should be disabled (nothing new when you use hackintosh, right? ). The Data partition will be mounted in /System/Volumes/Data but its original place is here, in /System/Library/Templates/Data. Like I said, we'll have to wait to see if our developers will be able to provide an alternative way, such like third kexts loading with Clover. Now, HD 5770 does not works since 10.14 (while Intel HD 3000 does) - No reasons found why especially this one (this GPU works OOB in all previous versions), nor any workaround. And I do not think this will change with 10.15. Now about other non-Metal GPUs, which work on 10.14, I guess they should (in theory) work on 10.15 as well. The only issue could come from what was said above. And yes, that's what it is a hackintosh - A long (hi)story.

    Be aware that macOS Catalina is supporting APFS only!!! No more support for HFS+, nor MBR. Maybe we'll see a workaround in near future, not sure.

    Clover UEFI ? Introduction ? This tutorial is for installing Clover UEFI in?Lenovo G480. ? 1 -?To install the operating system in UEFI mode, your BIOS needs to have the?UEFI Boot option?and it needs to be activated. ? ? 2 -?Note that?UEFI/EFI?when this option is active, appears before the name of the drive. ? ? Format a USB drive as?FAT32?and install Clover in it. ? You need to have at least this in drivers / EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder. ? After you have installed, create the EFI/BOOT folder on the flash drive and copy the file to EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi ? Start the system by USB drive to test the UEFI boot. ? If everything went right, and with everything working, it's time to install the Clover EFI. ? For that EFI has to be formatted in FAT32. The "x" is the number of your EFI partition. ? To format the EFI partition as FAT32: diskutil list sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/diskXs1 Now mount the EFI: mkdir /Volumes/EFI sudo mount_msdos /dev/diskXs1 /Volumes/EFI Create a folder EFI on the EFI partition. ? Copy the EFI/Clover pen drive to folder EFI partition. ? Reboot with the flash drive inserted. In Clover menu, go to?Clover Boot Options?and select?Add as UEFI boot option. Now you will be able to boot Clover from EFI partition without the pen drive, in UEFI mode. ? [This option will only appear if the UEFI mode is activated] From now you can not start without the pen drive at Clover EFI partition in UEFI mode. ? An afterthought, when all set, delete the folders of other drivers drivers32UEFI, drivers32 and drivers64. ? What Works USB 3.0/2.0? HDMI video. Ethernet WiFi HD 4000 Touchpad ? What Doesn't Work VGA CardReader ?
