Are you using Little Snitch or something similar? It has the tenancy to disable stuff which is important for iCloud.
If you use it, disable it temporarily and try again.

Well just an update for anyone using the ASRock Fatal1ty Z77 Professional-M (Current UEFI v1.80) or thinking about purchasing this motherboard.

The board is working 100% even Backwards compatibility of the Intel USB 3.0 ports, thanks to my friend Mieze from Germany. She's brilliant with ACPI editing!

Thanks everyone who provided insite!

FYI if you have a EVGA nvidia Kepler GPU you can download the UEFI vbios update by contacting tech support.

Ultra fast boot works in my motherboard with clover, no post screen, and boot screen is now full res screen no black around the edges.

Good luck everyone!

Thank you!

Your displays are very good ones for supporting 1920x1080 in 21.4 inches.
I have 2 Syncmaster displays, but maximum resolution is not good; 1920x1080 for 27 inch, 1680x1050 for 22 inch.
Just big sizes with no higher resolution support!

I've tried to get 1920x1080 at Clover booting, but so far in vain.
My vga GTX460's vbios doesn't have that resolution. What a pity! :wallbash:
Congratulations once again :thumbsup_anim:

The best thing about the UEFI vbios the ultra fast boot for win8. I use when booting clover for osx. My boot to osx desktop has dropped to 4 seconds!

In my asrock UEFI setup it's called UEFI GOP.

Thank you very much. (I am sure that I have to study the manual more thoroughly^^)

PatchVBios gave me a higher resolution, but Clover didn't use the whole screen and still with some black space around boot screen. So I tried several combinations using InjectEDID, LoadVBios, and GraphicsInjector options. But same result.
My LCD is SyncMastr TA531(27 inch, max. res. 1920x1080)

Looking at preboot.log, these lines are seen.

4:775 0:000 Available graphics modes for refit.conf screen_resolution:
4:775 0:000 Curr. Mode = 4, Modes = 6, FB = E9000000, FB size=0xE00000
4:775 0:000 - Mode 0: 640x480 PixFmt = 8bit BGR, PixPerScanLine = 640
4:775 0:000 - Mode 1: 800x600 PixFmt = 8bit BGR, PixPerScanLine = 800
4:775 0:000 - Mode 2: 1024x768 PixFmt = 8bit BGR, PixPerScanLine = 1024
4:775 0:000 - Mode 3: 1280x1024 PixFmt = 8bit BGR, PixPerScanLine = 1280
4:775 0:000 - Mode 4: 1920x1080 PixFmt = 8bit BGR, PixPerScanLine = 1920
4:775 0:000 - Mode 5: 1280x800 PixFmt = 8bit BGR, PixPerScanLine = 1280
4:775 0:000 SetScreenResolution: 1920x1080 - already set
4:998 0:223 Found Mouse device:
4:998 0:000 - ResolutionX=8
4:998 0:000 - ResolutionY=8
4:998 0:000 - ResolutionZ=8
4:998 0:000 - Left button present
4:998 0:000 - Right button present
5:001 0:003 GUI ready


Before VBios patch, I couldn't see Mode4 above.

One strange thing. My second LCD is 22 inch (SyncMaster 223BW) with max resolution 1680x1050.
When I tried this display as main with 1680x1050 in refit.conf, it didn't work.
But with 1280x1024, Clover used the full screen without any extra black space.

Interesting. Thanks.

I posted this on another Clover Thread and above (SORRY), but I just want to let everyone know. That by updating my EVGA GTX 670 to the new UEFI vBios, my display now shows full screen @ 1920x1080 without any black edges when booting Clover or at the main menu. I can also use the Windows 8 Ultra Fast boot now with Clover and OSX. My Boots times are SICK!!! Super fast. 4-5 seconds max!

I know i've already posted this, but I wanted to add that all of this was without the need for CsmVideoDxe-64.efi

Check for a UEFI update for your GPU, It makes such a difference when using Clover. The only downside "not for me" once you update you wont be able to use the card with a legacy Bios motherboard. Legacy's dead anyhow. :wink2:

Good Luck everyone!

Mrengles

PS. I'll try to post a video of the entire boot. It will be a very short video. :thumbsup_anim:

Carmine,

I don't know, you should browse the Zotac website or contact their Tech Support. That's what I had to do. Evga hasn't released the update publicly and only will provide if asked.

Good luck dude!

By the way it's call "UEFI GOP"

I'd ask about Support UEFI GOP, or updating to vBios to UEFI.

Has anyone tried enabling FileVault with Clover? I did try with Chameleon but never got very far with it...
