I think I'm on to something.


If I do a reinstall from a USB installer created with createinstallmedia I am unable to start the second stage of the install; boot os x doesn't show in clover.


If I do a reinstall from "Recovery HD", clover sees the second stage install and I can continue on to complete the reinstall.


This could very well be a bug with the installer and not clover.

Check if you use new Clover revision.

Just finished doing that with the latest clover.  Still unable to boot the second stage of the install.


Attached is a debug log.  I do have a recovery hd now and clover can see it.  I have it hidden and use f3 to display it if I need it.


I'm currently booted in to the recovery hd.  Here is what's on my "Macintosh HD" right now:

I don't see where it says that it loaded HFSPlus driver. You need that one because the open source one does not handle core storage volumes. It should be creating boot entries from your recovery HD, maybe you are hiding it or something?



Sorry, I didn't post a log showing the hfsplus driver loaded.  I am able to boot my 10.12.4 system fine on a core storage volume without the hfsplus driver.  The problem I am having is that I cannot boot the second stage of the install when doing a clean install.  I did try using the hfsplus driver and doing another clean install and I still can't load the second stage of the install.  I also don't currently have a "Recovery HD" partition.  This is why I am trying to do a clean install.  I want to do a clean install so the recovery hd is created. then restore my time machine backup.


I should probably attempt another clean install with the hfsplus driver and send another debug log.

I don't see HFSPlus driver that is needed for fusion drive, in fact no HFS+ driver at all:

I'm using legacy boot, I thought the hfsplus driver was built in?  I'm able to boot my system if I do a time machine restore from the installer.  I just am unable to do a clean install and continue on to the second stage.


EDIT: I'm booted in to my system now after restoring time machine.  Here is the driver section from bdmesg.  I still don't see hfsplus so I don't think thats the issue.

EDIT2: hfsplus.efi driver didn't help.  I can see the driver loaded successfully via bdmesg. I then booted the 10.12.4 installer off of my usb flash drive and did another clean install.  Still doesn't see the second stage installer.

Make debug.log in this situation to understand what is the problem.

Attached is a zip of the debug log.


I enabled debug logging.  Rebooted to the installer which is on a usb flash drive.  I then wiped "Macintosh HD" using the disk utility in the installer.  I then installed OS X.  The system rebooted back to clover and there was no option to continue to the second install stage.


- Clover 4049

- Legacy boot

- Using a DIY Fusion Drive.  (120GB SSD with a 1TB HDD).
