Here is what I have running 1.8.4 UEFI

GA-H77M-D3H

i3 3220

Nvidia 8500 GT

4 GB Ram

I have this working pretty much perfect, so I really don't want to mess anything up. My problem is with Clover. I can only boot with the USB. I have tried to install Clover to the HD but that didn't work. This happened before and I tried to use chameleon, but it stalled the boot at loading the kernel.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can get this to work?

This is what worked on my mother:

 

Install Clover:

It installs a hidden partition

To see:

 

Open console:

 

diskutil list

mkdir /Volumes/efi

sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disXsY

You customize, edit as necessary (Add DSDT, add kexts, edit your config.plist etc)

Thanks. That worked for me. I tried a few different options, but the final result was always an error loading the kernel. I have a Samsung 840Pro SSD coming this week and I want to get this setup ready to clone over. That should just about do it. Everything working except for the Intel HD4000 being a huge PITA, the Geforce 8500 is working quite well.

Well, now that the boot problem has been fixed, since doing that, my sound has took a dump (no device detected) so I reinstalled the AppleHDA kext for my VT2021 and nothing. Also any youtube videos I watch will stop periodically. Would clover have installed some conflicting kexts?

No, clover doesn't install any kexts. May I suggest voodoohda instead.

I just plugged in another HDD and did a fresh install, updated to 10.8.4 with everything working. I installed clover with the bare minimum. Restarted and had broken sound and video. For some reason, every time install clover to the hard drive, it breaks the sound and video.
