Hello zayn,
I’m trying to install MacOS Catalina via ISO or via update directly from Mojave. Mojave boots perfectly, with Catalina I only get a black screen with a white Apple logo. I have the latest Unlocker for Workstation on it. Is there a trick? Of course, I would also use the finished hard drive, but I would also like to install it on foot myself. Can you give me a hint?

Thank you

C. Fischer
