    Clover problems report & features request

    Just tried setting Mojave as the startup disk in settings and when it rebooted it had selected the 'Preboot' partition instead. Using Clover 4920. So it didn't work.

    Clover problems report & features request

    Good to know. Thank you.
  4. All I can say is my usb installer came from a site that’s not so popular here. Will not mention them by name.
  5. Try booting using Clover off of a Usb stick. I just solved a graphical issue I had and it was from a faulty Clover installation. Most likely the defaults.plist was faulty. So I recommend a fresh clover install with fresh defaults file.

    GT 740 Black screen with pointer at login

    Found a fix!!! But not sure exactly what was the cause but hot on its trail!! Seems like my original Mojave Clover USB stick works without a hitch!!! So I copied that back into my EFI folder on my main drive and now every thing is working very nice. What was the cause?? I don't know and I don't think I care but I am curious... Thanks

    GT 740 Black screen with pointer at login

    Well turns out the two AMD cards they had at bestbuy after some research are not compatible with Mojave. That includes the R5 220 Core and the RX 550. So I am going to stick with it for the long haul until I figure this out. Its got to be something simple. Anyhow pulled my ACPI tables and working on patching them. Lets see if that helps.

    GT 740 Black screen with pointer at login

    Guess my Destiny 2 campaign will have to wait..
  9. Hi, Was trying to figure out how to fix when I boot into Mojave I get a black screen after the apple logo With Clover latest and Mojave 10.14.5. If I unhook the dvi cable and plug it back in sometimes the login screen shows up and I have full graphic acceleration but every time I reboot or if the system comes out of sleep again it’s back with the black screen. So as I understand I need to patch my dsdt or rather make one first and edit Framebuffer. So I am a little lost and need help or pointed in the right direction as far as what I got to do. thanks

    Safe to replace CSMVIDEO with Clover's in Bios?

    It would seem like a big risk though on my Ozmosis rig I once did in fact replace the csmvideo bios module successfully on a Gigabyte Z87 board and that helped fix a resolution issue I was having. Though that file was called hermitcsm I think. Probably an older modified Edk release? The system I am thinking of modding is an Asus Z68 board running Clover. The GOP driver I don’t believe gets loaded because I’m using a discrete video card and I just updated that card to the latest nvidia gop plus the motherboard lacks on board video ports. Furthermore turning off csm on this board locks up the system because of faulty uefi bios thanks to Asus. Thing is I have noticed that after I select to load Windows from the Clover boot menu all of a sudden the screen goes into high resolution mode with my bios boot logo being displayed half size while the Windows spinning wheel is displayed below the logo that was meant to be displayed at 640x480 res but now at a higher resolution. So was wondering if replacing that csmvideo module would allow the system to post at a higher res to keep things consistent? Fwiw I have my usb rom programmer standing by.. Thanks.

    I made a fork of it a few months ago. Totally legal to do so according to the open source license. Actually I am one of a hundred people: https://github.com/LongSoft/UEFITool/network/members All I did though was skin it and add a few special effects. Its all UefiTool under the hood with full credit to Coderush and LongSoft.

    If its that much trouble just buy a new board or a refurb compatible with your cpu and start over. Get one with dual bios feature. Even better get a Z170 with an 8350 and mod the bios for coffee lake then put Oz on in there. Its all about having fun and your not having any it seems.
