Is there a possibility for packing theme files into archives like tar or dmg or iso, and having Clover read them from packed instead of having them on filesystem as individual files?

In Enoch.


r2824 in trunk - Attempt to have uniform flow of time in progress bar during countdown.

Originally I added support for protected-mode interrupts for this, but ErmaC disabled it later on.  So progress bar regressed.  Now I try something else so that timer interrupts are not missed during countdown.

These are times I get...


Grub Exfat

SATA disk (MBR) 1:074

USB disk (MBR) 1:417



SATA disk (MBR)




SATA disk (GPT)




EDK2 Fat Driver

SATA disk (GPT) 0:926

USB disk (MBR) 0:926



SATA disk (GPT)


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



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.

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.


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



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

In Topic: EDK2 (UEFI) Shell issues/bugs?

These patches have been committed to EDK2 in github - but ShellBinPkg not rebuilt yet.


cecekpawon - Your problems with shell from ShellBinPkg are not universal.  The newer shell for me has always worked, though may be bugs in it that I didn't notice in features I don't use.

It could be problem in the Windows build.  For instance, the shell converts device-paths to text on startup (for the map), which can cause potential hangs with use of va_list.
