    what would be the recommended clover version for those still in High Sierra. Recent discussions seems specific to Mojave so it's possible those clover versions are not suitable for <10.14? Thanks
  2. For me, black screen often happens after verbose portion (boot flag -v in clover config.plist) of boot and before the Apple logo with horizontal progress bar shows up. The display would go to sleep (says entering entering sleep mode) on it "own". Things I've tried: 1. MacPro6,1 + DP cable: permanent black screen unless I use Lilu+NvidiaGraphicsFix. Even then, I still often get black screen. 2. MacPro5,1 + DP cable: No need to use Lilu+NvidiaGraphicsFix but still intermittent black screen. I've also tried using an injected GFX1 SSDT file(see attachment) . same results. 3. MacPro5,1 + DVI cable: no black screen so far but I've only been using it for the last 4 hours! I've also tried using an injected GFX1 SSDT file. But it seems it doesn't matter if I'm using one or not for DVI. In saying that, it would be great if I can use a display cable that can carry audio signal as well. I've been using a cheap USB audio card but it produces an annoying pop during startup and shutdown. setup in my sig. Thanks! Note: I haven't tried MacPro6,1 + DVI. I have yet to try HDMI on any SMBIOS configuration. I'll be doing that tomorrow. SSDT(GFX).zip

    another question please. If I don't need something to show up (or scanned), I can delete the EFI driver. correct? example: I don't want the Windows OS/data partitions to be shown/scanned so I can delete and NTFS driver. Or in Linux case, I can delete any of the extX drivers. Thanks

    How can I disable scanning of entries during clover boot? I've tried the settings on the screenshot and Auto=Yes (which disables all the checkboxes inside the scan section) but it's still happening. Thanks

    Is this the right place to talk about compiling and other developer talk? Seems it's more appropriate to talk about that in the clover development section. And leave the "normal" clover users to this thread?

    TLDR: (10.13.x) HFSplus can't detect any drives (including the USB stick OSX installer) on UEFI booting when I installed an older firmware on motherboard. VboxHFS+ works on UEFI boot. But I have experienced bootloop issues when I use VboxHFs + 4+TB HFS+ raid array but on legacy boot. No issues with HFSplus when using legacy booting. I can use a legacy boot USB installer to install OSX but the HDD have the same issues when using UEFI boot. --------------------- A month ago I updated the firmware (2018 version) on my Intel board and I got UEFI booting working. Clover+HFSplus.efi can detect my USB and the single HDD. I also have no bootloop issues when it comes to using a 4+TB HFS+ raid array. Because of other weird boot issues which I thought we're due to OSX, I moved back to Windows. But the weird boot issues area still present so I put back an older version (2017) of the firmware and from what I can see, my boot issues on Windows have disappeared. I decided to try OSX again last night. The problem is that when UEFi booting, HFSplus.efi can't detect any drives including the USB stick. I used VboxHFS just several hours ago, no issues with detecting drives. But when I was testing OSX last month and was using VBoxHFS on legacy boot, I get bootloop issues when I have 4+TB HFS+ raid array. I tried smaller raid array like 2x 80GB and I don't get any bootloop with that. My educated guess is that VboxHFS starts to get issues with raid arrays as the size increases. Any ideas on how to: 1. Continue using HFSplus but using UEFI 2. OR use VbosHFS but no bootloop on raid arrays Thanks

    Clover problems report & features request

    I created a UEFI USB installer and my UEFI setup cannot boot using it. I tried a UEFI Ubuntu USB installer and that works fine. I inspected both sticks using the motherboard EFI shell and I can see that the EFI folder created by clover doesn't have the attribute of D (D for directory) hence the motherboard firmware cannot see the bootloader. The fix I had to do is to run these commands inside motherboard EFI shell: 1. fsX: (change to correct location of the USB stick) 2. attrib * (to display all the attributes of files/folders. The EFI folder has no D attribute at this point. It does does the archive attribute set. The other OSX system folders like .FSxxx have one) 3. attrib -a EFI (strips the EFI of its attributes. for some reason this also creates a new file called EFI) 4. del EFI (deletes the EFI file) 5. attrib * (to display the attributes again and this time the EFI folder has a D attribute) Can this be fix by Clover? Thanks!

    Perhaps those without UEFI will care?
  11. Just a question: Seems this guide is for creating a legacy booting not UEFI? I asked since: 1. I downloaded the clover install.zip and it contains a driver64 folder 2. It doesn't tell what options to select during Clover installation. Some installation options are disabled once i select UEFI. Basically I'm trying to get UEFI to boot using a USB installer and somehow it's not working. I believe my board (see sig) supports UEFI since I run the Ubuntu USB installer using the UEFI bootable device option. Plus after installing Ubuntu, I get a "UEFI:ubuntu" in my bootable devices list. Thanks

    I followed whatever is in the guide that I linked. I've only tried high Sierra and using GPT. After installing clover with UEFI option, I have an EFI volume.

    1. Board is already running latest firmware. But I don't think matters much since I can boot on UEFI when using Ubuntu? I've actually tried other Linux distros and everyone one of them gave me the option to start Linux using UEFI. 2. The board is already running OSX at the moment but using legacy. The reason why I want to use UEFI is that I've read that I need UEFI to use NVMe.

    I want to use UEFI OSX booting on my S2600CP2 board. I'm not sure if the board has UEFI capabilities but I know it has an EFI shell and I know that when I try to boot using an Ubuntu USB installer, I use/see the "UEFI: my ubuntu-USB-stick-here" option in the list of bootable drives. Also after installing Ubuntu, I see a "UEFI:ubuntu" in the boot options and I use this UEFI to start Ubuntu. I followed this guide (https://github.com/Pavo-IM/CloverInstall/wiki/Yosemite) when creating a bootable UEFI clover USB installer. When booting the OSX USB installer, there's no UEFI label unlike in Ubuntu. I have no choice but to select the USB stick from the selection and when it tries to boot, all I see is the cursor blinking. Any ideas what I could be doing wrong? Thanks a lot! ps. From what I can remember all SATA ports on the board are configured as AHCI. not sure if this matters.

    yes, that's correct. hoping to see someone using a PCIe adapter + an NVMe drive booting OSX. Thanks for the reply though. Appreciate it. At least I know OSX can boot off NVMe!
