    Searching ZFS for Clover

    Brilliant! That seems to have sorted me out.

    Searching ZFS for Clover

    Google does not reveal any reference to a grub_zfs.efi - is this an April fools joke?

    Searching ZFS for Clover

    Hi. I have a problem that I think is related to Clover. I have a Z370N motherboard with 4 SATA ports. I have a PCI-E card with 2 SATA ports. They are all populated with 8TB disks in a mirrored ZFS array. Boot drive is NVMe and I am using the latest Clover installer (4910) and Mojave 10.14.4 Upon booting after a CMOS reset/BIOS update, the disks appear in MacOS Mojave as expected. Upon subsequent reboots, the 4 ports on the motherboard do not register the disks. Sometimes, the disks randomly appear after a reboot. Upon testing with APFS SATA disks, there is no such problem. This appears to be a problem limited to recognising ZFS disks on the motherboard SATA ports. The PCI-E attached disks are unaffected. It seems to be an issue with Clover because upon startup after a CMOS reset, Clover takes a while to scan disks and does not recognise my "LastBootedVolume" - upon subsequent boots, there is no lengthy scan it boots right up. Has anyone experienced this? Any thoughts on a fix?
  4. someone made the point in chat that shifting users from forum to chat is not good for community. in this line of thinking, best to keep chat, whether IRC or otherwise, as part of the website.
  5. slack was alright when could connect with IRC. no IRC gateway=no thank you

  8. Hi, I have a setup based on ASRock X99 Extreme4/3.1 and currently use a RocketRaid640. It works fine, but I needed more ports. The RocketRaid 2720SGL is recognised at POST and i see it spin up the disks connected. I have flashed with non-raid bios. But OS X does not see it. I have tried installing Highpoint drivers, even though El Capitan has drivers built in. I have also installed the clover blockbios and it makes no difference. Any ideas? Thanks!
  9. I'm using 10.9.1 installed using the Vanilla guide, including DSDT, on a P5W motherboard. USB is unfortunately stuck at USB1 speed. If I boot in safe mode, i get full usb speed. Previously it was possible to remove AppleHPET.kext and everything would be good. Running without AppleHPET.kext now causes a kernel panic, so i'm after another solution. For what it's worth, my DSDT is attached. Any ideas? Edit:
  10. solved this by unmounting the disk and doing dd if=boot1h of=/dev/rdisk0s2 bs=4096 with chameleon. I also marked the partition as active, not sure if that was necessary. The difference was I had not used the bs=4096 option.
  11. Hi, I have been running a p5w off of a 2tb seagate for a while and have just needed to upgrade to a 3tb, a seagate as well. i was using chameleon to boot. i cannot get any bootloader to boot off the 3tb disk. i have tried all the installers and installing manually with the same result. boot0 error. The workaround is to install chameleon on a usb stick. Any got any ideas of things to try to get this working again? Thanks!
  12. hey guys, i've got myself quite puzzled. some time ago my install started acting weird. basically it sometimes, apparently randomly, won't load the mkexts and boots safe mode. so to work around this i reboot repeatedly with -v until it loads the mkext and moves on. safe mode is annoying to say the least! sometimes when i try to rebuild the mkext i get "kext is invalid, omitted" but a reboot allows me to build the mkext normally. currently using pc efi 10.6. i have x32, graphics enabler = y and boot-uuid set this is on a p5w-dh deluxe with a q6600. i am using a dsdt.aml the kexts i have been using in /Extra/Extensions are: AHCIPortInjector AppleRTC AtherosFix IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector IOAudioFamily JMicronATA NullCPUPowerManagement OSvKernDSPLib OpenHaltRestart PlatformUUID VoodooHDA famesmc any help would be most appreciated! p.s. where is the most up to date guide for a vanilla install that covers Chameleon rc4 and pc efi 10.6? i just want to confirm compatibility and ensure i haven't missed any steps.

    Broadcom 4315 - Snow Leopard

    i had trouble getting my bcm4306 working under SL too, though it was always flawless under leo. with 10.6.2 however the 64-bit atheros driver is working just dandy on my other card, so i'm satisfied.

    Video Encoder that use OpenCL

    i don't believe there are any options at this time. Even badaboom which is cuda, is early days. sorry to disappoint.

    i've never experienced any such issues. while rapidshare .com or .de are not my preferred options, there is nothing inherently wrong with them. i just checked a couple with ad and pop-up blocking disabled and received nothing but some inoffensive advertising suggesting i can make money working from home or if am looking for a date. i suppose they could be employing some geo-targetting if you are in a country that allows it. advertising can get downright dirty sometimes. for me anyway, it's relatively clean and painless.
