was just released in 7th October 2019. This is the major release by an Apple because the UI of Catalina is in 3 variant Dark, Auto and Light. You can install this OS in any laptop running Intel processor and assuming you've at least 8 GB of RAM. 4 GB RAM can also install it but maybe a little slow and laggy while working with heavy programs. Below are the necessary requirements for this guide :


  • Intel based processor laptop/desktop
    USB stick 16 GB or higher
    A working mac or Hackintosh
    Internet Connection
Use 16 GB flasdrive(Pen Drive) or higher than 8 GB

Description:
To get a working Mojave installer onto a USB flash drive it must first be formatted into a scheme that allows for an EFI Partition. Afterward the Catalina Installer is ready to be placed on the USB drive using is Terminal.

Note:- In my case, my sub flash drive is /dev/disk3, you can check for the available drive using the command diskutil list.

Step 2: Transferring the Mojave Installer to USB flash drive via terminal.
If you using the Disk Utility method to Formatting the USB Drive, then using this command.
