Very nice bootloader, I've been using it for 10 days. It wasn't easy to figure out how to make it work, but once I did I love it!. Nice work, and it's beeing constantly improved.
I just love to have the option to switch to Chameleon while booting through Clover, and booting from Lion & Mountain Lion installer partitions itś a dream come true.

Thanks a lot to ALL the Clover developers, having too bootloaders at hand it much better than one.

Clover completely hangs (before showing boot menu) when config.plist turbo set to Yes.
According to the ARK page the Intel i5-2400 CPU has Turbo Boost.
I have no overclock, run the latest BIOS, and Clover.

Is this a (known) bug?

Thanks!

Used config.plist:

Revision 718 has mouse pointer support.
Write into config.plist the follow
<key>Pointer</key>
<dict>
<key>Speed</key>
<string>8</string>
</dict>
Larger value - faster speed.
Some mice don't properly work. Sorry for the drivers restrictions.
For me Logitech works fine.

Your config.plist file was missing some closing </dict> statements.
See if this works.


Well I feel stupid. Thanks blackosx that was it exactly.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the installation?
It always shows the exclamation mark at the end of the installation. (I am using Clover to install OS X with InstallESD.dmg)

Is there a way to set a resolution in clover? (Just for the menu and boot logo).
I've got it pretty much working on my ASRock Extreme 11 (i7-3930k). Though it always needs the argument WithKexts no other options work with the kernel cache. (Maybe because of VoodooTSC).

Other question:

How do you guys install with the InstallESD.dmg? The instructions tell to add /s/l/e, coreservices and mach_kernel in stage 2. But there is no way to that in my case. After the files are copied. Reboot takes place and if i want to reboot in the InstallESD usb drive to add those files it will immediately start a installation that can't find the packages link... (Some destination is set in the nvram or clover dunno..)

A normal basesystem + packages + mach_kernel will work fine though, but it won't make the restore partition.

Yes, I remember, but I just don't know what to do.

You mean Screen Resolution? Clover always set maximum available. See no reason to reduce it.

My way is to install Lion and then upgrade it to ML. During the upgrade I obtained recovery partition while I need no it.

Very long? This is a time to connect to devices, drives, to check your partitions.
Chameleon is faster at this moment because it uses BIOS drivers that are already connected. But then Chameleon works with INT13 while Clover by AHCI.
You may see at kext loading. When Chameleon loads all kexts and is writing to the screen something like
[HFS+] AppleHDA.kext is loading...
...
you may go for a cup of coffee or may be sleep a little.

Hi Slice

I'll post here as projectosx is down (same problem that used to happen with Insanely until they updated forum software).

Bug report using Clover rev720.
At the GUI my keyboard locks up when pressing return to boot the selected volume.
When the GUI is first drawn my keyboard works as far as pressing left and right, but pressing for example A, or return just locks the machine. I've tried unplugging the keyboard and reconnecting it but as far as I can tell the machine is locked and I have to power off.

Oh, I did see 720 appear in white text and the bottom right half of the screen?

Be sure you have recent pointer.icns or create your own black-green pointer ;) 32x32pixels

Yes, people asked me to do this. I just can't place it in the corner.

Thanks Slice, that fixed it and I can boot again. :)

My mouse pointer doesn't move though, but I saw above you posted about it doesn't work for everyone. I have two mice here; one cheap USB and a bluetooth Apple Magic mouse.

The pointer.icns you supply in the clover source looks great, so I don't think I need to create a different one for the black_green theme.

I want to thank Slice and all of those who have worked tirelessly on Clover for many months, as it is absolutely fantastic, using an Asus Z77 Sabertooth and an intel i7 3770K slightly overclocked to 3.8 GHz, NO DSDT and Clover is very fast and stable with version 709.

Geekbench 64 give me 1K more sped than with Chameleon. I am delighted, the only issue I have is that I cannot get it to boot directly with UEFI.I am very grateful to you all - It is goodbye chameleon for me.

What a big difference and please be assured that many are very appreciative of the effort you have put into this project.
