10.15 Catalinab beta

Thanks for the 'heads up'.  "Catalina" not released yet right?  Could be it works upon release or could be we'll need to make a change.

Right. Developers beta currently. Not unusual for Apple to impose special restrictions/limitations for these.

I had a failed flash drive today and needed to use the creator tool in 10.14 mojave. Couldn't get it to work. Server kept giving me an error that the flash drive I had created was not bootable. Had to create the flash on a machine running High Sierra. Not sure why the tool failed. It never showed any errors. Does the flash need any prep before using the creator tool?

I am interested in using unRAID in favor of my current freenas setup. A bummer that I am not able to create a boot flash drive since I am currently left with a single Catalina powered Mac. Are there updates on when we can expect the flash creator with Catalina?

You can still create a bootable flash drive on a Mac, you just have to do it the old way-

A new build is ready for internal testing but I haven't upgraded to Catalina yet.  Could someone please test it out?: https://s3.amazonaws.com/dnld.lime-technology.com/tools/Unraid.USB.Creator.macOS-1.7.dmg

@eschultz

No luck.

Disabling SIP resolved the mounting problem (csrutil disable). The creator tool appeared to complete successfully, but the flash wasn't bootable when I tried to boot from it. The flash was definatly selected as boot device (all others disabled).

Almost forgot, also got a message when first trying to open the creator tool "can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software."

I believe this has something to do with Apple recognized developer ID's. I was able to right-click and force open the app.

In meantime can see if this works:

This is caused by the Privacy features introduced with macOS Mojava and expanded with macOS Catalina. Essentially apps are sandboxed and not allowed to access the full disk, unless you give them that permission.

You can give an application access to the full disk like this:

  1. Open System Preferences
  2. Click Privacy & Security
  3. Choose the Privacy tab
  4. Select Full Disk Access in the lift on the left
  5. Click the lock in the bottom left corner to unlock
  6. Drag the application into the list on the right
  7. The next time you launch the application, it will have access to the full disk.

From 2nd answer here:

https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/371888/restore-access-to-file-system-for-emacs-on-macos-catalina

 

I should be able to test myself later in the week.

Actually, with the latest update to Catalina there is a “+” button on the system pref pane to open a file browser and add the app. Fairly sure it wasn’t there before and I know you couldn’t drag and drop an app (tried that repeatedly). Apparently this was due to a bug introduced by Apple which they must have corrected in the dot one update that just came out a few days ago.

 

I’m accessing remotely right now. Was able to add the app in the system pref pane, but my arms are too short to be able to plug in a flash drive.😁

 

I’ll give it a shot after work today.

Worked great.

 

Added the app to pref pane under "Full Disk Access"

Created bootable flash without issue. Mac is running 10.15.1. Anyone running 10.15.0 will need to update. I don't have any way to test with Mojave though.

Still isn't working for me. Added it to full disk access.

Do you have SIP disabled? I didn’t re-enable mine before testing.
