Dual boot macOS Monterey/Ventura on the same drive

Hi All,
I recently installed macOS Monterey and macOS Ventura to a dedicated drive on my multiboot system (Opencore 0.8.8). After installing macOS Monterey I added an APFS Volume for installing macOS Ventura but after completing it I noticed that opening Disk Utility in macOS Monterey the macOS Monterey volume appears as a System Snapshot whereas the macOS Ventura volume does not:

Conversely, the same behavior occurs when opening Disk Utility in macOS Ventura...

Upgrade to Catalina

I have been working on a High Sierra Hackintosh since May 2018. I need to upgrade to at least Catalina to keep up to date with my architectural software. I have already successfully changed my graphics card from a GTX 1050 to a Radeon RX 570.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H270-HD3P

Should I do anything else before trying the Catalina install? IE: update Clover?

Catalina install reboots but doesn't finish

I want to upgrade my Mojave 10.14.4 machine to Catalina. While running under a normal boot, I started up the Catalina install file and it started up just fine, then counted down remaining minutes from about 26 to maybe 3 minutes, then wanted to reboot. So I rebooted. When it came back, it didn't apparently realize it was in the middle of an install so it did nothing else, and it still shows running Mojave 10.14.4.

Is there a way to kickstart the install back to finish up?

Cannot create a bootable Clover USB from Catalina


Long time lurker, small time poster.

I cannot seem to create a bootable Clover USB stick with my Catalina 10.14.7 Disk Utilities.

I'm basically trying to get a latest version of Clover (r5151) onto a stick to boot and test update Big Sur on to a cloned Catalina drive, so as not to pollute my stable Catalina build. I do not want to go the route of OpenCore just yet because although I've briefly tried and appreciate the simplicity, I've also researched bad things of bricked...

Asus Z370-I with onboard ASM3142 controller

Has anyone got this controller to work with JBOD enclosure on Catalina? I have correct USB mapping and have no problems with USB sticks plugged in to gen2 port. However, when I plug in gen2 4xHDD enclosure it only detects single drive. When I plug it in to another port (usb3.1gen1) it detects all drives just fine. It seems like there is no multiport support for JBOD, but when I go to System Report>USB it shows 4 USB3.1 Bridges with speed of 10Gb each, which indicates the multiport is...

Hot plug ICH10 patch does not work

Hello! I'm trying to install Catalina (since the necessary software works on it, and so, and would continue to work in Sierra). A year ago, I managed to do this, hot plugging worked, I remember copying two kexts AHCIPortInjector and AHCIPort, but not all disks were initialized and eventually the system rebooted. This time nothing helps, including 4 patches in clover. Need help!

So I have a used MacBook Pro running Big Sur and have acquired and assembled all I need for my first build (better late than never?).

I am now attempting to create my USB installer and am getting a Command Not Found message from Terminal.
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Big\ --volume /Volumes/MyVolume

Is it possible my used laptop doesn't have the commands required?
