After the installation process, you know the "black-screen-white-apple-logo-and-about-25-minutes-remaining" screen, it finally jumps to the "Share Analytics with Apple" screen. After that it says "Setting op your Mac". At this screen it seems like loading for an eternity. Be aware that this is an error that can occur. Some people have waited for hours after realizing this (did some digging on this cause i encountered the same issue). After some 20 minutes i forced a shutdown by holding down the power button (Risky, very risky). After starting it back up it jumped to the Homescreen as if nothing happened. Rebooted it just to make sure, and all is fine now. So be aware and don't pannick too soon :). To whom it may concern: Macbook Pro with 13" retina display (early 2015), Core i5 and 8gigs of Ram.

Mine did take a very long time to install but it was installing fine and then it restarted the countdown and analyzing time remaining once again. I waited and waited and waited but did not shut down and finally after about two hours it was installed all by itself. Hang in there people. Running smoothly so far.

So far working perfectly on my MacBook Pro 2018. Using sidecar with an iPad Pro 10.5 256gb flawlessly.

Hold up on installing. Still very laggy.

Does this allow me to use older hardware? Are there compatibility issues with certain drivers for older stuff? Like printers?

That’s what I thought. I downloaded the thing already. Just haven’t opened or installed it yet. I’ll wait patiently
