Just switch to Clover recently, and really like it. Especially I can keep original OSX install untouched, and patch kexts dynamically.
But I have two questions about clover.
I'm running a pretty old PC. ASUS P5E-VM HDMI motherboard and QX9650 CPU, it has ALC883 audio chip and running latest Mavericks (10.9.4). And my questions are:
1. My CPU shows only two steps: x6 2.0G and x9 3.0G. Not sure if this CPU will only use this two steps or my configuration issue? I didn't change anything relate to CPU in config.plist yet.
2. ALC883 is pretty old audio chip, fortunately, I found a Mavericks AppleHDA.kext for it, and it works fine. However I read somewhere said I need to put this patched kext under /S/L/E, if I keep it in both /S/L/E and /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9, I will get KP, so I just replace the one under /S/L/E with patched.
But this make me feel like I'm not really using Clover. So I searched again, and find ForceKextsToLoad. The document and example is not very clear. Is this option means: if I have two version (original and patched) AppleHDA.kext under /S/L/E and /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9, I can force system use the one from /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.9 and keep /S/L/E untouched?
Also, example shows "\Extra\Extensions", but how about EFI partition? how to specify the kexts from EFI partition?
