Catalina, DosDude Patcher, and Data Partition Mounts,
Posted by: Microman
Date: March 13, 2022 11:32AM
I have been running Catalina on my Mid 2012 13" MacBook Pro for a long time. I only see Macintosh HD, on the desktop.

When I successfully installed DosDude1 Patcher on this older 2008 15" MacBook Pro, upon finish and boot up, I see to HD mounted on the Desktop. One is now the Data Partition.

I search Google, and I see that this can be quite normal, and what people saw on the release of Catalina. So why the difference between my Daily Driver that was updated to Catalina and does not mount the Data partition and the Install of DosDude Patcher, and other people on the search having two Mounts? MacHD and Data?

Something glitched.

It (the Data vol) should be hidden.

Yes the Data volume should be hidden, I read on this thread, that if you update there will be one ICON on desktop (Macintosh HD), and if you do a clean install Two, Mac HD and Data.

Just one of many threads discussing the issue.... and I guess there is a fix, using disk util, but will have to read again, carefully

assume you ran the post patch and clear the cache from dosdude drive?
if so, boot to dosdude drive Recovery, run DFA on the boot.
Reboot and post patch and cache again.
This fixed some @#$%& I had with HS on my MP3,1.

According to MacTracker, the mid 2012 13 inch MacBookPro 9,2 can be updated to Catalina 10.15.7 directly from Apple. No patch is necessary

Yes, the Data partition should be hidden.

I believe the last OS where it was not hidden was High Sierra
