@The_Oracle I have got your message. You are not the first to get an error during extracting the file. I work only om Macintosh computers. I have archived the file using WinZip Pro. On my Mac I tested the file several times and it seems to work fine as it should be. Now after I have seen more than a complain about extraction I will take the archived file and I will test it on a Windows PC computer. If i face the same error I will find a solution. Excuse me for this behavior. Expect an action from me soon.
@dazzledame I made a thread here that has an ISO of macOS Catalina. Try it and see if it will do what you are looking for. @The_Oracle I know it might be double job for you but if you are still getting error extracting the downloaded file, try out this one, it is ISO and ready to be installed on VMware. macOS Catalina ISO
@Jimmie you thread is for installing in VM virtually, I am asking installing as MAIN OS. Like upgrading from windows, formatting and installing new...any tutorial ? how to burn with rufus and install ?
