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
CPU: i7-7700
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...
