Look is this topic for your questions and later #4615 on latest bios F13mod 11 (for EX58-UD5 only !):



Only difference to your bios setting is that I have eabled loadline calibration (CPU) in "Advanced Voltage Settings"


Are you using latest FakeSMC 6.20.1410 ?



Here is my actual  EFI/CLOVER KEXTS: (OSX10.11.5 and 10.12 sierra)

Rev 3561 - first Sierra compatible revision


Rev 3577

Legacy boot improvements.


Legacy boot is a process to boot OSes through 16bit instructions in real mode like it did old PC BIOS-based computer before Clover, before UEFI.

It was needed to boot Windows XP or Windows 7-32bit, old Linux or modern systems if the drive formatted to MBR Partition Table.

But Clover is already 32/64bit program working in EFI environment in protected mode. It can't get back to real mode. To do this we made a trick with loading PBR boot sector and start it in real mode.

It's a pity it is not always work because devices like SATA controller occur in undefined state. :(


There was three methods for Legacy boot before "LegacyBiosDefault", "PBRtest", "PBR" set by config.plist


"LegacyBiosDefault" assumed UEFI BIOS with CSM module capable to do LegacyBoot.

"PBR" is the most commonly used method for legacy Clover. I have one computer with PATA drive working with this method.

"PBRtest" is somehow different. May be someone will be happy with it.


Now I propose one more method "PBRsata". It is the same as "PBR" but making a SATA reset before boot. AFAIK the SATA controller is a main reason why legacy boot is not working.

Hope someone will be happy.


PS. The version is released.

Hello Slice,


I have EX58-UD5 and use "PBR" and Clover EFi 64bits BiosBlockIO, because i don't have UEFI...

My experiences with the latest Clover boot updates :


Clover r 3551 is ok for me for OSX 10.11.5,  but Clover versions > 3551 don'work !


Clover r3661 is ok for me for OSX 10.12, but Clover versions > 3561 don'work !


Why is this ?


Do you believe I could have better results with "PBRsata" option and do I have to change to Clover EFi 64bits SATA in the same time?


Thank you for your advice

I am currently posting this from my Sierra install. Went fine so far - I took your config.plist. Quite mean: your standard language is french - I had to use my high school french to get through the installation haha

I have trouble right now to install audio. There are so many options now with Toleda's patcher, one from Mirone and then there's clover patches, a patched HDA and DSDT patches. I don't even know where to start.

And I also have my usual graphic card problems where my card boots into a white screen and dies. I have to boot with a monitor attached and plug it in after a while and hope that the computer is done booting to show me the log in window.


The Bios update went fine too as far as I can see. Haven't tested all the options yet and my overclock is gone too ^^ oh well...



For audio: I think  You should try Clover kext first


For Overclock:


In bios settings :

MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T.) -> Find the best equation for your Processor toggling with   CPU Clock Ratio and  x BCLK Frequency(Mhz)

Works good here with GTX970 Gainward Phantom and beta webdriver.

Tested with Geekbench and Cinebench R15.

Only de singlecore results are 15 % lower than with 10.11.5 !
