off. then I would then make an SSDT with this tool to compare. https://github.com/P...ha/ssdtPRGen.sh

 

or extract the SSDT from chameleon to use in clover.

@crushers -

 

on disk1 - the first partition is 209.7 MB and is formatted as HFS. it should be formatted EFI - the same as parition 1 on disk0 . the file system would be fat32 vs hfs.

@slice -

 

let me restate:

when using VBoxHfs-64.efi, AND /boot is present, I get an extra (bogus) entry to Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from OSX  volume.

when using HFSplus.efi , it does not present this odd Microsoft boot entry with /boot in OSX partition.

there is no microsoft on this volume

 

boot disk has 3 partitions:

1) EFI

2) OSX

3) RecoveryHD

 

Note: and there is a DVD (2nd whole volume found in log) - not presented in GUI.

 

attached are the pre-boot logs and screenshots for these 2 cases:

1) no-boot-file -> means no /boot on OSX partition.

2) with-boot-file -> means there is /boot on OSX partition

 

 

of course the work around solution is to remove /boot

but VBoxHFS or Clover should not present this as a boot option either.

@slice 

 

i finally figured out what is causing VboxHFS.efi to list a bogus Microsoft boot option as compared to HFSPlus.efi. I recall Dr Hurt and others mentioning the same issue. 

well clover is not finding an extra bootmgfw.efi as suspected - it finds a leftover /boot file and just presents in the GUI (a no-op on click). this file is a legacy clover boot file from when I used to boot via MBR. 

 

@warraisraw - 

as mentioned - move to clover and be done! getting intel speed step including turbo is generally a simple matter of SSDT and using the right product/model. like mbp6,1 or mbp8,1. - the i5 520m is a pretty common CPU in the 2010/11 era.

 

 

Yeah, I want find the problem or difference between both bootloaders, only for this I used Chameleon, for make a dump and compare with the Clover dump. Was only for not install all OS's again.

 

The problem:

Chameleon: Turbo Frequencies

Clover: No Turbo Frequencies

 

in addition to above suggestion... you may need to do something like this 

 

add to ACPI section... assuming your tables are named as such:

 

                <key>DropTables</key>

                <array>

                        <dict>

                                <key>Signature</key>

                                <string>SSDT</string>

                                <key>TableId</key>

                                <string>Cpu0Ist</string>

                        </dict>

                        <dict>

                                <key>Signature</key>

                                <string>SSDT</string>

                                <key>TableId</key>

                                <string>CpuPm</string>

                        </dict>

                 </array>

 
and then use this:

 

                <key>SSDT</key>

                <dict>

                        <key>Generate</key>

                        <dict>

                                <key>CStates</key>

                                <true/>

                                <key>PStates</key>

                                <true/>

                        </dict>

                </dict>

@jacekg - 

 

easy to fix - the OSX installer likes to convert your disk into a logical volume. so just revert to regular volume by command line:

the clover installer seems to get lost otherwise (i.e. looks at your disk1 and doesn't see EFI partition)

sudo diskutil corestorage revert /
