Installing Kext on clover EFI

clover efi kext

Best Answer Mkizle, 17 October 2017 - 02:00 PM

Thanks for your answers, i found a way easier way to do it if you have windows running on the same machine also:

 

1) You dont need to install paragon HFS, just mount efi partition of disk, which is FAT32, unlike system itself...

procedure:

1.1)run/open diskpart as admin (either from start or from cmd, or from windows(or system32) folder

1.2) In diskpart - list disk, then select disk X(use correct number)

1.3) In diskpart - list partition, then select partition X (correct number)

1.4) In diskpart - assign letter=x

1.5) Efi is now mounted, but explorer wont allow you open it(stupid windows rights). Open notepad AS ADMIN, File ->open ->navigate to efi/clover/kexts (yes, this will trick windows rights, lol)

1.6) Paste kext files (still in notepad open window)

 

The issue was that after the update it did not recognise the USB ports so nothing worked (keyboard / mouse), following the above steps i mounted the EFI and placed 

 

USBinjectall.kext into efi/clover/kexts/other

 

Rebooted the computer and the usb worked, so now i could use the keyboard and mouse and complete my set up.

 

Everything is now working apart from sound, but ill find a way to fix that as i have done before.


Can a moderator change the title to something more specific like "Installing Kext on clover EFI - USB not working after High Sierra Upgrade" thanks.


Just a note:

 

i did this in order to get FCPX 3D text working as on sierra it didnt, i installed the updated Web Drivers by NVIDIA and now everything is working perfectly.

 

for anyone wondering my set up is:

 

Intel Core i7-6700 Skylake

Asus H110M-A/M.2 Motherboard

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

16GB DDR4 2133MHz

250GB SK hynix SL301 SSD (Windows)

Seagate 1TB BarraCuda (Extra Storage)

Samsung 850 EVO 1TB (OSX)

Hi Everyone,

 

Hoping someone can help me, so i managed to update from sierra to high sierra on my hackintosh however, after the update installed my usb ports do not work so neither do my keyboard or mouse, now i know this is because i did not place the usb kext file into the efi clover folder, is there anyway to do this through the initial clover bootloader screen? or do i have to reinstall sierra again and go through the whole process, reason i dont want to do this is because i would have format the ssd and i did not back up some files which i dont want to lose, if any one can give me some advise please, id really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi Mkizle,

 

put the kext on a fat formatted usb pen-drive.

Boot to efi shell. Type something like that:

cp -r fsX:\name-of-usb.kext fs0:\EFI\Clover\kexts\Other

X has to be the number of your pen drive.

 

Bye

  • Check BIOS settings (these names from a Gigabyte board): XHCI Mode=Smart Auto, EHCI Handoff=enabled, XHCI Handoff=enabled
  • On a 5-series board set FixUSB_1000 in config.plist (or Clover Configurator / ACPI / DSDT / Fix USB)
  • Try plugging into different USB ports. USB2 ports might be the best bet.
  • On P55/H55 boards, many things to try, no single solution for everyone:
