Clover is now compiled without the grub drivers which makes it start significantly faster on my system :)

Thanks Slice

VoodooPS2 compiled with macOS Sierra fix by rehabman along with many other fixes and tweaks.

 

NOT tested on sierra yet, but I think it should work.  

Please report.

These are times I get...

 

Grub Exfat

SATA disk (MBR) 1:074

USB disk (MBR) 1:417

 

Grub NTFS

SATA disk (MBR)

0:961

0:943

0:944

SATA disk (GPT)

0:944

0:944

 

EDK2 Fat Driver

SATA disk (GPT) 0:926

USB disk (MBR) 0:926

 

VBox HFS

SATA disk (GPT)

0:926

1:118 on system partition

USB disk (MBR)

1:100 on system partition

 

So none is especially snappy.

 

Grub EXFAT is bundled into boot[367].  You can disable by

./ebuild.sh -D NO_GRUB_DRIVERS

 

Your values are significantly higher than mine.

 

It might be worth mentioning that I have scan legacy and tools disabled.

What's intriguing is the difference between exfat and the other partitions. Is the difference merely driver-related or is clover doing unnecessary scanning of the partitions?

It is actually the scan of

5: Data 1

7: Data 2

that is taking a long time.  There is a recognizable filesystem on those partitions, and it's looking for at least 31 boot loaders (by superficial count) - if they exist.  (They do not).

So the question is...

What filesystem is on those partitions?

Which filesystem driver do you use for them?

 

BTW, it says partition 2 on this disk is "EFI", so why do you think it's MBR?  Looks like GPT.

 

I said MSR (Microsoft Reserved Partition) not MBR.

 

Those 2 partitions are exfat. (Data 1 and Data 2)

The were created recently to replace 2 NTFS. So I guess the slow down happened after that. 

 

The only efi drivers I have are fsinject and hfsplus.

Why does clover take longer than usual to scan loaders on NTFS and MSR partition?

 

1:762  0:000  Scanning loaders...

1:762  0:000   0: 'Whole Disc Boot' no file system

1:762  0:000   1: '' no file system

1:762  0:000   2: 'EFI'

1:807  0:044      AddLoaderEntry for Volume Name=EFI

1:830  0:023   3: 'Macintosh HD'

1:860  0:029      AddLoaderEntry for Volume Name=Macintosh HD

1:903  0:042      Check if volume Is Hibernated:

1:903  0:000      Check sleep image 'by signature':

1:975  0:071      read prefs \Library\Preferences\SystemConfiguration\com.apple.PowerManagement.plist status=Success

1:975  0:000      using default sleep image name = \private\var\vm\sleepimage

2:012  0:037      Reading first 512 bytes of sleepimage ...

2:028  0:000       hibernated: no - sign

2:041  0:012   4: 'Recovery HD'

2:055  0:013      AddLoaderEntry for Volume Name=Recovery HD

2:071  0:016   5: 'Data 1'

2:949  0:878   6: 'Legacy HD5' no file system

2:949  0:000   7: 'Data 2'

3:984  1:034   8: 'Legacy HD7' no file system

 

 

I know this seems like a silly question but it used to be faster.
