Once a pkg is made, people will download it, and since this is new fix/first revision, they won't get needed updates or improvements if/when released. It really is better to build it, and you'll want the ability so you can update in the future as well.


While I do agree that it's better to build it, I think the way Clover works means that once someone builds it the latest installer gets moved to Sourceforge?

i format the usb in mbr fat32 one partition, do a standard instalation, put the info needed at the end of the config but simply appears that 7 and nothing happens even if i let one hour. cant get rid of the boot1 error if i install in the hdd... so i think im stuck. will have to wait for another fix...

i cant even get to the bootloader interface.

I know that this is the iMessage thread but hopefully this will get some eyes on it and help me solve this problem

This is on a USB stick not a HDD

eep357 has been very helpful in getting a working config.plist going for my setup. The issue now is it seem like clover is not looking to that at all, is there a specific way you have to build the USB stick for it to work?

For example when I go into options it doesnt respect any of the parameters that have been set in the config.plist

Thanks for all the hard work and research... it works on my iMac12,1 hack. Will try to switch to clover as the primary bootloader in my free time...

No luck here but it is obviously a clover issue, I am getting kernel panics on start up. Good to know there is a solution to the Message problem though.

Both my Hackintoshes currently have Chameleon 2.1 bootloader and MBR-style partitions. Can I just migrate to Clover without expecting problems or will the MBR partition scheme give issues? I also read that you can boot Clover in EFI mode and in BIOS mode, does this method absolutely require the use of EFI mode?

If you read Clover instructions thread more carefully you may notice that using boot1h2 you have a choice to boot Clover or Chameleon located on the same partition.

I was able to get everything working perfectly, EXCEPT my cinema led out of the displayport. I can plug a different monitor into DVI2 to get two monitors working, but the displayport/cinema led will not work. iMessage really isn't that important compared to getting my main screen back, so:

Does anyone have any idea how to remove Clover?!

if you just install over the chameleon. reinstall chameleon and it will takeover the boot again. for me was that simple.

Read Slice's post 2 above your's

@mendietinha-Not sure what you issue may be, my brother had problem with getting it to start from USB and from hard drive when on a non-Intel SATA3 port, but worked OK from HD on Intel SATA2. Clover forums would be your best resource, the ones here and at projectosx86.com

@mendietinha, I have read some user experiences where changing USB stick to newer one or trying different USB ports would help. Or even sometimes changing some options in BIOS regarding those USB ports.

Perhaps it's because of an incorrect plist format. Open the file with a proper editor, like the one in Xcode or PlistEdit Pro.

Hi all!

If some of you are having problems with iMessage even after the clover fix, something about calling apple customer service, that's a simple trick that i found out by accident that appears to have solved the issue for me: log with your Apple ID in a legit Apple iOS or OSX device. Did it, tried again the clover fix, all joy.

Best regards!

Thank you for the tip but nothing changed. "Timeout" and some Partition Hide functions arent working, but stuff like the monitor resolution is working... strange.

Sorry for offtopic :king:

Timeout is changed in refit.config and not config.plist, also since config.plist can load from many locations, check boot.log to be sure it's loading the one you are expecting it to.

Its loading. I used the right refit.config and i get the "Hide Partition" function to work with:


<key>Volumes</key>
<dict>
<key>DefaultBootVolume</key>
<string>Macintosh HD RAID</string>
<key>HideAllLegacy</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>HideExternalUEFI</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>HideInternalUEFI</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>HideOpticalUEFI</key>
<string>No</string>
</dict>

But when its booting i get a blank black screen and i can only use my keyboard to get to GUI and select one of my 2 RAID0 drives to boot.
