    It functions in both legacy and UEFI if your firmware supports NVMe drives (you can see the drive in your firmware boot selection). You can also boot in legacy by using another non-NVMe disk to boot clover and using the NVMe driver that comes from EDK2, then you can boot UEFI from the NVMe using clover legacy.
     
     
    How we get into APFS now? I was literally talking about one specific situation for a UEFI boot and everyone is talking about legacy booting like I don't know how it works, lol. I was just saying that the UEFI FAT driver should be able to recognize any variant of FAT, but that some only recognize FAT32 because that is what the ESP is supposed to be formatted. However, because it is so small, most of the time it is actually formatted FAT16 unless you specifically force that it is FAT32. This is a situation that can lead to unrecognized UEFI boot disk.
     
     
    This discussion about FAT turned into a discussion about legacy booting... lmao.
     
     
    The other UEFI problems, no drivers or incorrect paths... haha
     
     
    Yeah, they for sure work in both. You will usually have more trouble with macOS than the booter....
     
     
    Weird, you should have still booted. Your firmware should have failed and tried the next boot option, unless it just went back to the boot selection menu and you were unsure why? I do way more stupid stuff on a daily basis....
     
    The ESP is always supposed to be FAT32.

    we are working on a fix for all EFIs for the pro thread still and that’s why it’s not been updated yet. Plus I’m a little busy at the moment so bare with me dude and I will come up with a working solution soon.
    the Z390 Master board has a better bios and less problems with igpu enabled hence why it got updated first.
     
    and yes without the MA.EFI life becomes a lot more difficult to keep it stable all the time but what can I do?
    if you want to continue using the fix then go for it, I can’t say what will happen in the long term but I’m yet to find a genuine case of where free2000 or MA.EFI have caused any harm and I’m always longing to here a story about how it all went sideways because of it but alas this story does not exist because it’s never happened. Make of that what you will buddy.

    Zenith your 100% correct my path was wrong i dropped my efi into the blank efi folder /Volumes/EFI/EFI/ instead of replacing the one on root of the NVME drive. LOL i guess old dogs can still wet the floors. thanks for your reply.

    You are not reading the changes on this fork thoroughly, you can use custom entry to override the name from system and can set it be hidden as well.
     
    I like to keep it as simple as possible.  This GUI picker is only an extra, like bios menu to me, I hardly have to see it, since I can switch Oses using just the Hotkeys.
     
    It uses the system fonts, so not changeable.

    I got my hand full with other stuffs, these are low priority. I am sure the whole GUI boot picker are wrapped up in that one single file pretty simple enough, if someone want to add something useful, feel free to post and I will not ignore suggestion.

    It is normal for mis-configured system.   Please, if you really need help, at least post your log and config.plist, so others can point you to the right direction, and update your system profile, so people know what system you have.  Don't just post some random comment and expect other to help.

    How about add below code to the selection list inside OcSimpleBootMenu? You'd need to add one more icon named "os_installer.icns" to the icon folder. (Would this be best under "case OcBootApple:", or under "case OcBootCustom:" ?)
     
    (For my own use, I've added extra code in this same section to better distinguish OS on NVMe vs SATA drives as the SATA drives contain my backup copies; one just has to be careful in how one names the actual drives, like "CaBkUp" or "MoBkUp" in accordance with how the search is implemented.)
     
    } else if (StrStr (Name, L"Installer") != NULL) { FilePath = L"EFI\\OC\\Icons\\os_installer.icns";

    Yes, I did. All Hotkeys working without any problem. I am using my setup like a real Mac now.
     
    I don't want to see the boot picker cause I have just one boot drive, here are my settings;
     
    PollAppleHotKeys YES
    ShowPicker NO (if you want to see boot entries start to click multiple times to Opt/Alt button when you saw the Motherboard Logo if doesn't work for you use ESC button)
    TakeoffDelay 5000
    Timeout 0
    UsePicker YES
    KeySupport NO
     
    You must add AppleUsbKbDxe.efi driver. That's it.

    Anyone who have a custom entry set for macOS, disable that custom entry before running the update then macOS Installer would show up instead Custom entry name.

    Yeah but on the Z390 Pro it’s a lot harder to get it all going then it is on the master. Over on my master thread everybody in converting to my new EFI minus MemoryAllocation.EFI with no trouble at all following my advise.

    I reproduced the error during ( this time ) the update to Catalina 10.15.3. the error does not pertain to recovery but the lack of MacOs Install. i had to reboot several times before starting the install to verify. Same 2 OC version releases ( Official + NDK ) from yesterday with each EFIs on separate drives.  Mac OS install appear on the Official release of OC ( & Clover ) but not on yours. Only differences in configs are hidden entries & ACPI quirk. I think the second icon of recovery is from the Catalina Mac OS installer  but the option for the actual installer is missing. Can anyone else confirm this bug? Thank you.
    AllowSetDefault is set to false ( Last entry remembered ).

    I am sure I haven't touched the Oc auto scanner code, whatever it found it's what i used, and I didn't change any name regarding recovery at all. It shouldn't be any different regarding recovery entry name between this fork and official.

    I have to remind that legacy boot have stages:
    1. BIOS jumps to a small program written into boot0 sector from MBR block 0 on a device.
    2. boot0 program searches a bootable partition containing boot1 program in the first block. Jump to boot1.
    3. boot1 searches for file boot on the partition. So it must know file system on the partition.
    Because of that we have three kind of boot1
    boot1f32 for FAT32 partition
    boot1h for HFS+ partition
    boot1x for exFAT partition
    And I see AnV written boot1n for NTFS partition.
    That's all. We have no boot1 for APFS, EXT2/4 etc.
    As well boot1f32 will not work on FAT16 because for slightly different offsets of FAT table and different signature. I may propose that good programmer is able to write boot1f16 but I see no such file yet.

    This requires you to modify the C code yourself, then compile it, and the icon has to be found or drawn by yourself!

    It's easily doable but, it will create a delay effect when loading the background image, especially if it's high resolutions screen. I tried, it's kinda annoying effect.

    While reading your reply I realised the same question was already asked by me some time ago.
     
     
     
     
    While searching on the net for a solution I found information about the app SwitchResX, tried it and could indeed disable the TV but even after a reboot the system could somehow see it. The memory clock of the RX kept turning @ 2Ghz. TV is disconnected at the moment and will keep it that way while looking for other possibilities to let the misses watch her series while I use the computer.

    Hi
     
    Follow what @AudioGod says. It's a good solution.
     
    One stupid question: I've a MSI Radeon RX580. No IGPU needed, this card supports 4 HDMI ports, so I could use one for monitor and for TV if I want it. Display TV can be disable in macOS.

    bios reset button on the io plate but it might not be enough. Most times it is though.
     
    if that fails and you don’t want to pull your loop apart then the only other thing you can do is reflash your bios with the latest firmware.
