Do not reply to this post. I will make fun of you.

Prerequisites

You will need an 8GB+ USB drive, and you'll need to download the following: Any other kexts you may need can be found here.


 
Step 1 - Download macOS 10.15 Catalina


First you will need to download and install the macOS Developer Preview Beta Profile in order to access the Catalina download page. Once the profile is installed, either the Mac App Store or System Preferences (if you're on 10.14 or above) will open where you can download the file. Do not download it from any other source as you can't verify if it's legit or malicious.


Step 2 - Format USB Drive in Disk Utility

First, in your USB drive, then open Disk Utility. Disk Utility can be found in /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app.

In here, click onto the Sidebar Menu Options button, and select "Show All Devices".


   

Then, click onto your USB Drive (not the partition, but the drive itself).

   


Now click the "Erase" button, and set everything to match the screenshot below. Then click "Erase".

   

If erasing the drive fails, redo this step another few times.
Disk Utility is garbage nowadays.

Step 3 - createinstallmedia Command

 

First plug in your 8 GB+ USB drive, then open Terminal and type in the following command:

Code:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ 10.15\ Beta.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --nointeraction --downloadassets --volume /Volumes/USB/


Type in your password when promoted, then press the enter key.
Note: you won't see any indication of your password being typed in.

This will start the copying of the installer files to your flash drive. It can take quite a few minutes to finish the the process, so be patient.

(lol, patience with hackintosh?)


 
Step 4 - Customize Clover
 
Open up the Clover installer package and click "Continue" twice. Then, click on "Change Install Location..."
Then, select the options that are listed below:

   


 
Step 5 - Install the Required Kexts
 

Open up the EFI partition (location: /Volumes/EFI/), and navigate to "EFI", then to "CLOVER". Then, navigate to the "kexts" folder, then to "Other". You should be in the directory /Volumes/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other/. In here, you'll want to drop in the required Kexts as well as any other Kexts you need for your system.

These are the required Kexts: You can find other Kexts for your system here, such as Ethernet Kexts.


Congratulations! This is the end.

If you've gotten this far and have had no issues at all, that's good. You can now boot your computer to this drive and install macOS Catalina on a SEPARATE PARTITION from your main partition. Do not install Catalina on your main partition, or else you're most likely going to encounter issues and may not be able to recover from.
