FYI: It is not closed on the Apple Support Community. It seems that Apple Engineers are investigating the situation. I had a similar/same situation happen to me when I upgraded my early 2008 MBP from Snow Leopard to Mavericks.

& i'm glad they are; apple rarely admits to anything. but still seems most macs are functioning under catalina, and people blame the new OS for issues particular to them, and not the OS in general.

still, hope this gets sorted out 👍

Yes just confirmation that Catalina bios upgrade does in fact kill some MACs. Mine was one of these but lucky I was under warranty. Between this and the poor quality of the changes and the continual issues of minor release breaking functionality i'm seriously considering alternative in the next year. I just feel that value of the premium price has eroded to not be a purchasing consideration and there is some much better hardware now on the market at much less price. Decisions, decisions.....
