Greetings!

So I managed to get a Catalina 10.15 vm up and running in ESXi 6.7u2.

When I try to install Catalina updates, however, it goes to the Apple logo, status bar moves ever so slightly, reboots again and this time hangs on the Apple logo. To fix this, I either remove or disable "Mac OS" as an option in the bootloader. Is there a way to get these updates to install?

In the meantime...

Instead of restarting Catalina after choosing to update it, I shutdown the guest. After a restart it SEEMED to update with the time duration countdown. Prior to this I did run disk utility and checked Untitled and Untitled-Data for errors (I don't think it found any). So I just logged back onto the VM and the version is still 10.15 and NOT 10.15.2 as hoped. So weird.

Any ideas?
