  1. This OpenCore project sounds very important and valuable much needed, but it is still way way too complicated for us. Is it possible to make software tools for Linux to make a build much simpler and faster? Hackintosh tools we have a macOS but we need to use tools to run on the target hardware and if we can't get macOS installed then we can't effectively gather the data needed for OpenCore configurations. USB bootable Linux Live Desktop easily boot PC hardware with a Live Installer image like Intel's Clear Linux: https://clearlinux.org/downloads Linux live desktop installers don't need to install to the hardware but conveniently run to test target hardware. To make a PC hackintosh build happen, users currently need to do the following manually but make many mistakes cos it is trial and error: Make an EFI directory with all the OpenCore files: config.plist SSDT.aml kernel extensions drivers change UEFI (BIOS) settings on motherboard. So this guaranteed to take longtime to get working. Couldn't smart developers make Linux tools/scripts that will accurately automate these requirements to make a working OpenCore EFI folder specific for target hardware? Once this working OpenCore EFI config is created it could be saved to a repository for other users to download the EFI OpenCore folder config for their build? I imagine, user, USB boot a Linux live boot on the target hardware. User runs the tool that perform deep hardware and firmware analysis, gathers all the configuration information needed and produce SSDT.aml & config.plist files, info on required kernel extension and drivers. Tool creates an OpenCore EFI folder, downloads all the required kernel extensions, drivers, makes the SSDT.aml & config.plist files for the EFI folder. Produce a report on required UEFI (BIOS) motherboard settings the user must do. Compress the EFI folder, still in Linux Live USB boot, go to a website where is a repository to upload OpenCore EFI folder for the Hardware configuration, this repository allows other users to download OpenCore EFI folders for their hardware. It save duplication, it saves constant question asking on forums and that saves everyone so much time.
  2. OpenCore Boot Menu hangs on Z97 Asus Gryphon. I don't really even know what i'm supposed to do on this menu. There's an asterix on 1 my Mojave install, I can sometime hit 1 and enter then a the list Choose boot entry gets displayed, then what, do I do?? I don't hit any key and wait, the Chooise boot entry menu gets displayed with Timeout, then hangs. Enter, Start, 1, ESC, does nothing. I uploaded my EFI directory, it's configured as per documentations for Haswell. OpenCore_EFI.zip

    Restart/Resolution problem with Clover

    Hi, CPU is i7-4790k, GPU Quadro K6000 x 2 Correct, I have 2010 Mac Pro, with two SSD. SSD#1 10.6.8 , SSD#2 10.9.5. So I clone 10.9.5 (maybe because is new but I need more the 10.6.8 it working better on Mac) to another SSD, I boot to this clone, install the Clover, then put in PC an try boot. I don't know what is this FakeSMC, this something in Clover install items? No, did not know about this, I thought because it pure MacOSX the Clover install to add and fix all pure to make work on any PC, so then I put in PC, starts, then the Clover is checking all this hardwares to set up, configure and make working for then boot.So I can't use working MacOSX from Mac Pro, do I need to set up all new from start in PC? I read this instructions but not making sense is it need real Mac to install the Clover first, of not working in PC how to install the Clover, i ask. Maybe I read more.

    Restart/Resolution problem with Clover

    OK thanks, so I read many things, I get to the point in Windows to run RW-Everything and save as all the .aml files. I do this then try compile them back in OSX with MaciASL_1.3-265_20150930 but it has big errors. I attach zip file EVGA.Z97.FTW.DSDT.SSDT.zip with all the aml file I export from windows RW-Everything just like steps shown in guide. Did I need to do all this? What else to do with this files? I add picture of RW-Everything, I saved all the SSDT/DSDT things, do I do all the other things as well? EVGA.Z97.FTW.DSDT.SSDT.zip

    Restart/Resolution problem with Clover

    1) What is boot with '-v' mean? 2) How to get hardware specs? I say motherboard type already. This PC run Windows, why no tools to get this hardware info when run from Windows? Why tools all Mac when can't run Mac to start with? No sense to me. 3) Enable Video card? Why it not do this automatic and how do I do this? EDIT: I try and guess what this '-v' Now black screen, white text, get to end then machine reboots, not much informations here.
  6. Had an install of 10.9.5 on my Mac Pro. I cloned it to another SSD, installed Clover_v2.3k_r3320. Put it in the PC, (EVGA Z97 FTW) fired it up, got to the Clover menu, hit enter, Apple logo appeared for about 5 seconds and then system restarted, it does this every time. It's not showing my native 2560x1600 resolution either, showing 1280x1024 instead. Where to from here, what do I do to successfully boot to desktop? thx

    Clover General discussion

    I have to Interrupt because for some reason the forums won't let me create a new topic. I'd like to know where is Clover up to in development? What can it do and what is planned? Questions, 1) Can Clover now at this point be configured to boot directly to an OS set in a Start Up Disk Control Panel rathert than painfully forcing the system to run into Clover, force user to select OS and then boot? This wastes too much time if a user uses 1 OS 90% of the time and occasionally boots to another OS. 2) Does Clover finally provide the same hold down 'Option' key to select boot OS like Apples Boot Picker? Is this ever going to be possible or something the Clover team will eventually provide the functionality? Really just want to use OSX on standard PC hardware but have the flexibility to boot between OS's as easily as a Mac. thanks
  8. I see, the lesson here, never use mechanical hard drives, you just have to blow on them and they fail now days. They were more reliable back in the time when they were single platter.
  9. Since I can't post in the Clover sub forum, anyone able to explain why projectosx the home of Clover has been offline for weeks?

    Radeon R9 270X framebuffer issue

    Is it possible to hack the driver to force it to run in 10.6.8 Snow Leopard?
