The issue is that clover itself never boots to GUI. I see the cursor in the corner, turning into a "7" and then it goes to a smaller cursor ( _ ) in the corner. With what seems to be the gui dark grey background and the smaller cursor because the resolution of the screen has been detected.
I tried to install in a USB stick, in my installation folder and in the GPT-EFI folder. I also tried the windows tool to create a USB stick and I always hit the same wall.
I have now tried the USB stick in my computer at work (Asus P6X58D-E + ATI5770) with no issues, so I am now sure my computer is to blame.
Chameleon works fine all the time, even with the cloverUSB stick if I press "2". Basically since OS X Tiger that I have been using this computer with MacOS only with no issues at all so I was a bit surprised clover did not work. I tried to find the minimum requirements of Clover to see if using Core2 technology was the problem but I didn't find it.
What am I missing here? Are there BIOS settings that Clover is not very keen about? Since at this point in the boot process there isnt much feedback it is hard to know what to try next.
if you can get to this stage it will give you a boot menu, you just have to be patient... and I mean very patient, I had a machine I had to wait 20 minutes for it to ID all the drives and other devices in before it gave me the screen asking what boot device to boot from. when the _ cursor is in the corner it is re-identifying all your hardware for the EFI boot loader. after the initial ID stage it can take 2-5 minutes to give you a menu then your set and the machine should load or you need to adjust settings in the Clover options then load. the first few times it's a case of get some coffee or beer and relax, you will be there a long while depending on the board.
