Yeah, about the GUI: If there's any dev could manage "vol_internal_apfs.icns" (or apfs related vol) to show on boot screen.

Thanks. :)

Hi, about GUI too. If there's any dev could manage "volume_external_recovery.icns" to show correctly on boot screen. Specially useful for theme with OS badge.

 

Thanks  :)

Clover doesn't inject AMD RX Vega correctly, is it using AMD10000Controllerkext, or AMD9500Controllerkext path?   Always shows AMD RX xxx.

Is it APFS? Or new OS revision has new boot.efi location? This icon is working but wrong picture?

Why it should be apple icon what the icon means?

// OS X installer paths
STATIC CHAR16 *OSXInstallerPaths[] = {
  L"\\Mac OS X Install Data\\boot.efi",
  L"\\macOS Install Data\\boot.efi",
  L"\\macOS Install Data\\Locked Files\\Boot Files\\boot.efi",
  L"\\OS X Install Data\\boot.efi",
  L"\\.IABootFiles\\boot.efi"
};

Or something else?

Clover uses the generic Apple logo only when it doesn't know the OS version it is booting eg when a new OS X comes out or if a custom entry is used in config.plist without specifying a custom image file to use ...

Attached File  Boot macOS install, OS ver not detected.png   245.22KB   7 downloads

 

Since Clover r4293, Clover correctly recognizes the OS version in the "macOS Install Data" folder by reading the SystemVersion.plist ---> fixed kext injection failing from /CLOVER/kexts/10.13 due to OS ver not being recognised.  This had the side-effect of now showing the correct OS ver icon/badge instead of the generic Apple logo before...

I think what you are wanting is actually a new feature request - a supplementary icon/badge beside the main icon when the loader entry type is OSXInstaller eg like the plus sign for OSXRecovery...

I do not want new future I just wanted the apple as before in High Sierra  :D

Since the first day High Sierra the apple was there for startosinstall method and its disappear :(

If you say that it was disappear because of the version stystem fix ; I did not know that now is the HS icons os_mac11.pngos_mac12.png

I was going to do without  :lol: I thought the apple was really connected to startosinstall method

Edit ****

@fusion71au thanks for the explanations and sorry @Slice for disturbing you with this.

I was blinding through the apple and I did not see that the version was well HS

Any way to make Clover boot into macOS installer when update? When I click update & restart on App Store, Clover should boot into "macOS installer volume name" if Clover found it, if not Clover should continue boot into "macOS system volume name". That way make Clover Bootloader look like a real mac and more easier to set update

I tried to install Clover on my desktop, to use its UEFI emulator to be able to boot Windows 10 on a GPT partitioned disk on a legacy BIOS motherboard (P6T Deluxe V2), but I am unable to get it to boot into Clover. I plan to dual boot Windows 10 and NixOS (a Linux distribution). Normally I use NixOS on my desktop, so I first created a disk image with Clover on it, by using the following script: https://github.com/m...linux-installer

 

I ran this disk image via Grub2 and memdisk (from Syslinux) on my laptop (Asus UL30A), which worked fine. It took a while because my USB stick is very slow, but it did boot into Clover without any issue. I then installed Clover on my new desktop disk using the same script. Unfortunately all I got was an underscore in the top left of the screen. When I try to boot Clover from the same USB stick as I used for the laptop, it eventually just reboots. I then tried to boot the Arch Linux iso on my desktop with the same USB stick, Grub2 and memdisk, and that did work, so it probably has to do with the hardware configuration of my desktop compared to my laptop. I changed quite a lot in my BIOS settings of my desktop, so I tried resetting it to the defaults, but that had no effect, still no Clover.

 

Any ideas what I could do to make Clover work on my desktop? Are the others with similar hardware that ran into issues? Should I maybe use an older version of Clover?

 

For now I will go with my plan B, to format the disk with MBR, install Windows 10, reformat the partition table to GPT and boot into Windows via a memdisk loaded MBR drive image that contains Windows 10's boot files. This allows me to boot into Windows 10 on a GPT partition disk, but I'd rather use Clover instead of this workaround.

 

Some more info about my desktop's hardware configuration:

CPU: i7 920 2.67Ghz (normally overclocked to 3.6Ghz)

MB: Asus P6T Deluxe v2
