Full Resolution at Clover


Best Answer Dr. Hurt, 18 August 2014 - 11:21 AM

Add this to your config.plist
<key>CustomEDID</key>
<data>AP///////wAEcsoComAwIAMWAQOAPCJ4yntFpFVKoicLUFS/74BxT4FAgYCBwIEAlQCzANHAAjqAGHE4LUBYLEUAVlAhAAAeAAAA/QA4TB9TEQAKICAgICAgAAAA/ABTMjcxSEwKICAgICAgAAAA/wBMVVcwRDAwNTg1MzAKAOg=</data>

And keep PatchVBios enabled but remove the ScreenResolution entry from the config.plist

Like it was suggested before, try to add your monitor’s EDID (extracted from windows) in CustomEDID and enable InjectEDID too. Post a boot.log and config if it still fails. Beware though that there currently isn’t a definitive solution for this problem, it might just not work with your graphics/monitor. You can try as a workaround to boot in legacy mode, which uses a different method and sometimes succeeds where UEFI fails.

does anyone know if a custom EDID is a solution to the resolution issue on virtualbox?  I have ML, Yosemite, EC all running flawlessly with clover on vbox except for the resolution issue.  My limited understanding is that in EFI mode on vbox you can choose different GPO modes.  Mode 4 is 1440x900 and Mode 5 is 1920x1200.  Is there a way to inject a custom EDID using clover to bypass/expand this so I can run fullscreen 1920x1080?  Sorry for my limited understanding of EFI, GPO, and how OSX gets its possible resolutions.

Time to resurrect an old topic!

 

I am at my wits end. I got a new monitor (Dell U2715H) and graphics card (Nvidia GT 710) and now my Clover boot screen is stretched. It was perfect before. I was hoping to get the boot screen to be at the monitor's native resolution (2560x1440) but at this point I'd be happy to just get non scaled icons at boot! Once booted I get full native resolution so this is just a semi cosmetic thing but it drives me crazy.

 

I have done a dozen things to get it to work. I extracted EDID while booted into Windows and added that in the Custom EDID section. Checked and uncheck every combination of LoadVBios, PatchVBios, Inject EDID. Removed Screen Resolution and changed it to several options. Nothing works. I always get 1280x1024 (in Clover's information menu) and stretched icons.

 

Can anyone shed some light on this? The "Best Answer" above does not work for me.

 

Thanks!

No. You can see my mobo in my signature.
