@Yehia Amer /others


I am running a tripple boot with clover on a gpt disk.I have flashed with a modded bios and in the bios settings it says boot efi but no further choices (it is selected by default).

But installing  clover with the option to boot exclusive in uefi mode does not make ithe hard drive to be bootable.

But as blazinsmokey says in post 1501 above clover boots the oses only when its installed with these options-

  • Install Clover in the ESP
  • Bootloader -> Install boot0ss in MBR
  • CloverEFI -> CloverEFI 64-bits SATA
  • Install RC scripts on target volume
  • Install Clover Preference Pane.

So what I am asking is, is it an efi set up or is  it some uefi shell on bios.Why cant we boot with pure uefi install of clover if insyde bios is already uefi supportive.I already have modded bios.

Do we need to make a HP_Tool partion or name EFI partition that and install hp uefi support enviornment tools to it, to make it a pure uefi setup.


Any explanations on these above said points.

Also if i chose install  clover to boot  uefi mode (first option in clover installler), then the os does not boot, it says no operating syatem found and I need to install clover with the above shown settings to boot.

Is it ok, meaning we dont have a true efi install because of our bios.


Please respond.

Thanks in advance.





Anyone knows if we can get GPT boot??

First: Install Clover to your USB,,, it wil create a volume named EFI,,, boot files will be at there,,, you have very close hardware configuration so you can use Yehia Amer's dsdt.aml and config.plist,,, first copy config.plist to your clover folder under EFI partition,,, if you dont know how to mount efi partition just use Clover Configurator... then put to DSDT.aml to the ACPI patched folder,,, and kexts,, you should put them in the 10.9 folder under kext folder then you are ready to boot and install mavericks... it will restart itself when trying to install,, its normal let it go with boot from USB again...


Second: After installation you should install clover to your HDD,, and copy the config.plist, kexts and dsdt.aml  put them in same folders on HDD,, if you want to install windows,, just install normal ways but you wont be able to boot in OSX,,, you should boot from USB one more time and run mavericks and install clover again,,, thats it...

First of all, thank you to all for your great works on our beloved HP notebooks,,

I did try to install Mavericks with clover several time without any success before,,,,well,,when i checked the forum today, i think i am gonna try again, at least, one more shot,,, But,,,it would be great to have a Step-by-Step Guide to install Maverick via USB with Clover i dont know if someone working on it or not,,, but if anyone can tell the progress,, it would be appreciated.




Edit: Well, i did install maverick and got it work,,, by using Clover and yehia Amer's config.plist, DSDT.aml and kexts from post #1477,,, But i replaced wifi card by BCM94312MCG and installed an old version of io80211.kext and its working now,,, it can see wireless networks but cant connect.... when i tried to join a network, it says failed to connect :S i can connect same modem via cable.. anyone can help me??
