Panic mode enabled :)

This is weird...

I was struggling to create a bootable clone of my Catalina hackintosh with CCC. I'ver got a Designare Z390. The hackintosh itself ran smoothly for the past 3 years but I wanted to try an update so I thought hey, why not make a clone of it and play on that. What did I do ???!! :)

How to make a perfect clone of my boot disk?

Hi everyone. I'd like to clone my Hackintosh boot disk for a simple reason: I want to install the Apple system updates in the clone disk, in my second Hackintosh, before doing it on the fully functional HD of my first hackintosh.
Put simply, I would like to have two identical disks that can boot the same way, so that I can test the compatibility of updates first on one disk, the "second Hackintosh", and then on the other. I cloned the system disk with Carbon Copy Cloner and then the UEFI...

Moving to Mojave on new SSD


I’m planning on updating my ancient Yosemite daily to Mojave.

It’s a Gigabyte GA-Z77 DS3H V.1 / i7 3 series / GT640 GPU

It’s currently on Chameleon/Multibeast with a SYSDEF of Mac Pro 3.1

I was wondering if I changed the SYSDEF (to which one I don’t know) I could then upgrade to Mojave?

Then could I clone the drive to the SSD?

Else: The original plan...

I have a ‘ known good’ Mojave Unibeast stick, which was my original plan. The only issue I may have with that is I don’t think...
