Hi all,

 

I want to say good bye to Clover-32 development.

It was occupy my time and efforts while really it is obsolete.

It can be used on processors that 32-bit only such as Pentium 4, old Athlon, Yonah, old Atom.

On Yonah you can use 10.6. Other CPUs are very problematic for Hackintosh.

All UEFI BIOSes are 64bit.

Windows UEFI is 64bit only.

macOS 10.8+ are 64bit only, moreover, 10.7 also requires 64bit CPU.

 

For those who still have such computer I may recommend to use old Clover versions and other bootloaders.

You will not have a profit from new development that striving for new hardware, new OSes, new technologies.

 

I think this topic will be appropriate place to communicate about Clover32. Some coders may publish here their solutions for other such users.

You can still build the 32 bit binaries. It just takes a little more work.

 

EDIT: Also I have two computers that have 32bit UEFI and one has an Atom (not old), the other has a Haswell........?

No clue why Clover 32-bit is 'discontinued', any build errors just mean the code is flawed.

There aren't even any build errors, it still builds perfectly fine, as the windows build script still builds 32bit. The difference is that you have to be careful about using UINTN and UINT64 in 32bit code where there is no issue with 64bit.
