    I was updating to beta 4 and suddenly it was hanging at the loading screen. Been waiting for 5 hours and my mac mini is hot as hell while there's no progress on the loading bar.

    Tried to restart and hold Cmd + R but still unable to restore back to Mojave ( I don't have time machine back up and usb drive mojave installer). Anything I should try or just bring to Apple Store? I don't have much data to lose so just want to get back to mojave.

    Mine got stuck too. I’ve been trying to recover, but I’m getting stuck after the first reboot for Mojave. It’s asking for a password and none of mine work. It’s really frustrating, but it is beta software soooo

    Managed to erase the Mac and can only reinstall a clean Catalina copy with Internet Recovery rather than Mojave. Will live with it for now but don't think I will install beta again next year.
