Windows 8 did a repair - Broke Clover

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have an old HDD with the Win 8 bootloader still present (all OS files deleted however, just not formatted drive), and by accident it booted up and started a repair *facepalm*.


After this my SSD which had Clover installed with a UEFI Boot to Yosemite and Windows 7 fails to work. It just boots straight into Windows 7 without bringing up the Clover Bootlader. I think the partition may not be active anymore? It seems like the Windows 7 Bootloader is getting priority. Im booting the SSD via UEFI.


I used my old SSD to bootup Mavericks and install Clover back to my Yosemite SSD, but it didnt work.


Any ideas how i can get Clover back?

I have just started over, removed the pesky Windows 8 Recovery and EFI partition now.


Ive decided to use 2 SSDs, Windows 7 on one and Yosemite on the other.


Is it possible to boot Clover in UEFI and then boot Windows 7 Legacy? Currently it just hangs on the blinking cursor.

I ended up putting Win 7 on one SSD and Yosemite on another SSD. And i deleted the EFI partition of the Win 8 HDD so it won't ever cause a problem again. Windows 8 what a POS.
