Hey,

Looks like an awesome guide! can't wait to try. Also, How woukd I change my steps if I am interested in using windows on one hdd and osx mavericks on another? My laptop has two, 1tb hdds.

Thanks!

Thanks well it basicly the same, but instead of choosing windows on the first disk just isntall it to the second one, clover should regonise it automaticly

Hello! Ive recently created for myself a pc that can boot into windows 8.1 and os x 10.10. I have each installation on a separate SSD formatted to UEFI and GPT. I can boot into each installation, but only from going into the BIOS and selecting the correct drive. I have tried installing clover to dual boot but it hasn't worked... :( does anyone have any instructions or guides to point me to?

Thanks in advance for your current work and future work!

Can you boot into Clover? if so you need to edit the clover.plist file in /EFI and create a menu entry for the other harddisk.
if you cannot boot into clover from hdd, insert usb off clover, boot from it, go to options, add as boot entry. From there on go the osx and edit the clover.plst

Thanks for such a quick response! I re-created the OS X installer usb and booted into clover. I tried adding it as a boot entry, -I think... I'm not entirely sure I did the right thing... what do I do the the clover.plist once I'm into OS X

Thanks in advance!

open Clover configurator find youre the path of the efi loader from windows, it should be someting simulair to /EFI/windows/ if you want i can teamview in youre osx to take a look cause this is a long time ago for me. Also check the wiki of clover.plist

Thanks for the response and offer! I'm really grateful for your help! When I was experimenting with booting os's from the clover USB I tried booting into windows, there were 4 different options for windows so I systematically went through them in an attempt to get into windows. However, on the 2nd one, it failed to boot, not even into the BIOS and ever since then I have been unable to get into the BIOS or any operation system! I hope I haven't done something stupid... I called ASUS support and they walked me through trouble shooting things, we came to the conclusion that both of my BIOS chips have gone bad, does this sound right? Anyway, unless you have a solution to this, I'm going to have to order new chips on Monday and then replace them to continue... 

 

Thanks for all your help, 

Leumas

I have this sometimes while adding uefi too, it resolves when i disconnect the hdds, so bios cannot read bootloader anymore, then boot. Then shutdown, connect the windows hdd, then try again

So first of all I want to thank you for all the help you have provided with this thread and earlier with my problems. Asus support is messed up! I just yesterday got my new bios chip, such a hassle.... So I installed it, and my computer still does the same thing, it will not boot into the bios or the operating system... I am seriously starting to freak out now because I can find nothing on the net to help me fix this problem! So I'd really appreciate it if you guys could give me some input, just let me know what specs or info you need, or I could just do a detailed post of everything that's happened.
Thanks so much, Leumas

Hi. I'm looking forward to building a mobile music hackintosh workstation based on 10.8 / 10.9. Does anyone know if this guide can be applied to the newer gt60 2qd dominator with nvidia 9xx, or can anyone address me to such a guide?

Hey IIIdefconIII,

 

Thanks for the excellent and informative guide and for sharing your files.

I've been lurking the forums for a long time, but this is the first Intel PC I've owned for a long while, so this is my first forray into the wild world of hackintoshes.

Unfortunately my hardware doesn't match yours. I'm on a GT72, rather than a GT70, but I was hoping you might be able to point me in the right direction for solving the error I'm getting.

Here's the error I get every time I get past the clover boot-loader:

Any thoughts? I really appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

I would try to read the Clover guid, it has proberly something to do with the UEFI64DRIVERS folder from clover.

Try this from my original post:

 

  1. Remove *.efi files from CLOVER/driver64EFUI and put you're OWN *.efi files here;

    1. [HFSPlus.efi][OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi]

    if this does not work if were going to install later, then

    2. [HFSPlus.efi][OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi][OsxLowMemFixDrv-64.efi]

    and then if this does not work then

    3. [HFSPlus.efi][OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi][OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi] (with slide=0 in boot args in config.plist)

    and if even this does not work, then try:

    4. [HFSPlus.efi][OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi][OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi] (with slide=0 in boot args in config.plist), [EmuVariableUefi-64.efi]

Alright- WHAT?? I am experiencing the same issue as someone on page #3, where Kali does not show up in Clover. I installed GRUB to a USB to boot off of for now, but Clover refuses to boot Kali- and note I do not linux files in my EFI directory- though I tried copying grubx64 and booting off that (Clover would only detect it as "Linux" not "Linux Kernel All"

 

I saw you provided the user with a config file, I was going to inspect what you set in the GUI part of clover configurator, but to my surprise its a game config file- I expected it and confirmed this.

 

What??

 

What do I need to do to get Kali working? I installed it fine, but I can not find the appropriate files to boot from - or how to make Clover handle them properly.

I made very amateur mistake! I was booting KALI installer as legacy! The initial guide was not clear that it is necessary to extract the EFI folder from Kali's /boot/efi.img file and place it in the root of the USB.

After this all is well, except that Clover needs to have grubx64.efi set to Linux, not LinuxKernel as the guide shows.

Hey buddy, were you able to get all USB2/USB3 ports working on El Capitan ? If so what changes did you make to the DSDT/Clover config.plist ?

On my build (GT70-2OD) i get all USB3 Working with my previous files from Mavericks/Yosemite, but nothing working on USB2.

Thanks.
