    Clover problems report & features request

    @Slice Issue seems to be solved in build 5098. Thank you. If it pops up again, I shall notify.

    Clover problems report & features request

    @Slice I have tested: I can update Clover on a pen drive formatted as HFS+ with GPT, but not on Macintosh HD with APFS (with GPT, of course).

    Clover problems report & features request

    As I said, I can not install Clover the second time. I have tried similar solutions regarding mounting EFI, deleting Clover and installing it. I get the same error message, when I try to install.

    No, I did not meant that I do not understand how it works, I meant I do not understand what to do.

    Sorry, what you said does not make sense. First method can not be understood and the second is much too simple. I can not install Clover more then once on the Macintosh HD.

    Clover build 5097 fails to install over 5070, like the previous ones. Issue still present.

    Clover problems report & features request

    No, it does not, CPUs with SSE4.1 can run Catalina, but they are blocked by the telemetry plugin. If patched or removed the telemetry plugin, Catalina works fine on CPUs with SSE 4.1 . The dosdude1 app has a patch for that too. There are some Macs that have SSE 4.1 but not SSE 4.2 and there are some people on Macrumors with unsupported Macs who use Clover there. Catalina works fine on my machine for now and I do not think this has anything to do with the fact that I can not update or re-install Clover after one install. I have posted a link with some contents, you can check the files and see and how it works without SSE 4.2, and also about the error. On GitHub, I see a new Clover build, 5077, but only sources, not installer.

    Another install, I booted with Clover 5070, installed Clover 5070 and it went fine. Until I have tried to upgrade to Clover 5096 over it, the error came back ands before, no further Clover installation possible, not even to an older version. I think I shall stick to Clover 5070 until a new build of Clover emerges. I have forgot to mention, I use this customised version of Voodoo HDA Audio https://github.com/chris1111/VoodooHDA-2.9.2-Clover-V14/releases installed on the Clasic option, the only way to get sound going. I remember this goes into the Preboot volume somehow, perhaps this causes the issue, although probably not. Perhaps @chris1111, who is the packager, knows best. Update: Copy-pasted the contents of the EFI from the pen drive on the main hard drive. Version 5096 seems almost fine working, except for the Clover Preferences Panel, that is absent (not even the file is present in Preferences Panel in neither of the three locations on the hard drive). Tried to install the standard Clover 5096 and it failed at usual. Here it is the install log, attached. Clover_Install_Log.txt

    Clover problems report & features request

    @Slice Yesterday, I have performed a clean install of Catalina with the latest Clover. It went fine, the issue seemed gone. But then it came the first Catalina supplemental update. So, as always, I have re-downloaded the Catalina installer app and re-created the installer pen drive, using the latest Clover. All went well. Not that I use the dosdude1 patch app, in order to avoid the issue of the invisible internal hard-drives. Also, because Clover does not see the correct SMBIOS in Catalina, I set using Clover Configurator the definition as iMac 14.2, although I install patches from the dosdude1 app for iMac10.2, due to the fact that my hardware is older. Between the installation of Clover on the pen drive and on Macintosh HD I remember those differences: 1) On Macintosh HD, I have checked first the theme option, decided not to use it. 2) On Macintosh HD installed Clover Preferences Panel. 3) On Macintosh HD, also placed the FakeSMC plugins to use with HWMonitor on the EFI partition of the pen drive. Usually, before reboots during and after the install, I get an error message, but I choose to reboot and things are fine. Since High Sierra, during installation, the machine reboots at the beginning of the installation, then it continues after reboot until the end. But, on this time, the install had only one reboot, in the end, not two, as it happened until now. The installation finished, got into the desktop and installed all the usual things: Clover, FakeSMC+plugins, Realtek Ethernet, VoodooPS2, then with Clover Configurator set the default boot volume, InjectNvidia and SMBios iMac 14.2 . But on first boot, instead of the Clover boot menu, got the error screen with multiple read lines including Rip! and error 000000000! . But it boots up fine using the pen drive with the same Clover version. Tried to install Clover again, but I have got the install error message that I had received two days ago. Note that one the patches from the dosdude1 app that I install is Intel IDE Controller patch, without it, the OS blocks into the first boot after the installation with the message: Still waiting for root device. https://wetransfer.com/downloads/2472c259c46ca66bda7a13be784b8ae520191016230048/7197ab16a6ffe7bd8b24f2a7c8a7379120191016230048/c67aad Into this link I have uploaded 1. EFI1: the contents of the EFI of the Macintosh HD internal SATA hard-drive. 2. EFI2: the contents of pen drive EFI partition.

    Clover problems report & features request

    @Slice This morning when I have checked for Clover updates (I knew 5070 to be the latest version.) I get notified on an update. Instead of an update, I have found a text file that said that Clover has been moved to GitHub. I have downloaded the 5096 version that failed to install, it said to contact the software manufacturer. Browsing the threads on this board in the Clover section, I see that it seems that Slice has forced, somehow, Clover, I find hard to follow several pages on the Clover development thread. I do not understand, is this a permanent change, a development experiment? Shall I wait for a new update on Sourceforge? Can I help with information or files? Update: Tried again to install, failed. Clover Preference Panel was gone. Tried to return to version 5070, but it fail to install with the same message.

    Finally success

    Finally success on Catalina install. It was a hard nut to crack, the hardest macOS to get going. Thank you to all the developers and people in here who made this possible, keep it going. My old machine shall see another year of life. If Apple shall not change to kernel of the next macOS, it may see even another, but probably this is the last macOS this hardware will be able to get. This is a combination of the method from here with the dosdude1 app. Hardware specs: Asus P5P41TED Intel Core2Duo E8500 2 gb ddr3 Nvidia GeForce 6500. @Slice (but not only him) One issue still remains unsolved: in the vanilla Catalina, internal hard-drives are invisible. Slice said something about changed kexts and this is probably the real. I have bypassed this using the dosdude1 patch app. I see that not all hackintoshers would choose this combination and the issue may affect others as well. RehabMan seems to have disappeared from the whole internet for. a while, his work needs to be continued by other people, especially FakeSMC. If it helps in any way, I can try to get f2 boot reports and IOREG ones.

    Mask CPU in SMSBIOS

    Thanks, I have found a way to finish all those problems. dosdude1, the main developer of the dosdude1 patch app, guide me to actually finish. I was applying to video card patch wrong, it was not a system definition issue.

    Mask CPU in SMSBIOS

    I knew Clover could mask not just a Hackintosh into a supported Mac model, but also a CPU into another. In a previous configuration, for El Capitan, Clover masked a Pentium Dual Core into a Core2Duo automaticly. Now I have a Core2Duo and I may need to mask it into another Intel dual core CPU to avoid the telemetry plugin. My dosdude 1 graphics patched Catalina, instead of a welcome screen, grants me an empty green screen with the mouse pointer and a reboot.

    SATA kext / Still waiting for root device

    It was an issue with the IDE patching. The latest dosdude1 app has a section of IDE patching that did the trick.

    Catalina On Older HW

    Have you applied the IDE patch?
