Basically due to my Windows legacy being installed with MBR, so Clover could not see it. Created EFI folder on Windows C: drive and copied over NTFS drivers over to Clover folder, working great now :) Had to edit config.plist manually to hide legacy drives.

Ok so sorry for asking all these questions lately, I'm just trying to perfect my setup :)

I just reattached all my Windows drives so I can setup dual boot.

Attached to my PC I have:
  • 120GB SSD (Reserved/Legacy Windows partitions)
  • 500GB SSD (NTFS storage)
  • 2 x 1TB SATA (NTFS in RAID mirror)
  • 500GB SSD (EFI/OSX/RECOVERY)
  • SATA Bluray writer
In Clover I now have:
  • Boot Windows Legacy HD1
  • Boot Windows Legacy HD1
  • Boot Windows Legacy HD1
  • Boot Windows Legacy HD1
  • Boot Windows Legacy HD2
  • Boot Windows Legacy HD3
  • Boot from High Sierra
  • Boot Recovery from Recovery HD
How is the best way to just have Windows, High Sierra and Recovery options only?


(PS - I already used "diskejectd-master" to stop the 2 x RAID drives popping up with an error message in High Sierra)

So having done some more reading I have been using Clover Configurator.

In GUI section under "scan" I have selected custom and unchecked 'legacy', now only the MacOS and Mac Recovery options show in Clover. 

 

I have 'entries' ticked and created a custom entry, however when I select the Windows legacy boot partition "System Reserved (disk2)" is does not fill in the UUID. In fact using terminal there does not seem to be a UUID for that partition.

 

diskutil list

/dev/disk1 (internal, physical):

   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER

   0:     FDisk_partition_scheme                        *128.0 GB   disk1

   1:               Windows_NTFS System Reserved         104.9 MB   disk1s1

   2:               Windows_NTFS WINDOWS                 127.0 GB   disk1s2

   3:                       0x27                         906.0 MB   disk1s3

 

 

I only get a UUID for the disk1s2 "WINDOWS":

 

diskutil info /dev/disk1s1 | egrep -om1 "([A-Z0-9]{8}.[A-Z0-9]{4}.+$)”

 

diskutil info /dev/disk1s2 | egrep -om1 "([A-Z0-9]{8}.[A-Z0-9]{4}.+$)"

720CDD76-7B7C-4F27-B3A2-99A7C056672D

 

diskutil info /dev/disk1s3 | egrep -om1 "([A-Z0-9]{8}.[A-Z0-9]{4}.+$)”

 

 

Any ideas?   :wallbash:   :D
