Is anybody else facing issues running 11.2.2 from external drives?
I am trying to install 11.2.2 on an external flash disk.
I have a Samsung DUO Plus and a SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive.
The SanDisk was running Catalina and I tried to update it to Big Sur via the App Store but it get’s stuck at “Less than 1 minute remaining” when installing.
The Samsung (fresh install) starts failing at some point during install, gives a kernel panic and reboots. That whole process repeats itself until i force the machine to shut down.
Installing Catalina on the Samsung works fine. Then updating that to Big Sur ends in an Apple logo boot-loop.
The issue occurs on a MacBook Pro 15″ 2018 as well as a MacBook Air 13″ 2015.
I’ve downloaded the installer multiple times and tried using the installer on the internal MacBook Pro drive (with success) to rule out issues with the installer-image.
