    @Bergui45, did you actually check? There are tools to see exactly what you got. Take into account that my career as a hackintosher is far shorter than yours.

    About my booting issue: I found the solution. If doublebooting fails, check if both your drives have an Efi folder. If not, you installed Windoze in legacy mode. You must convert it to Uefi. You ned not reinstall. Microsoft has a free cli tool called Mbr2Gpt that will convert your installation. After conversion follow instructions.

    That is what I expected. Your machine is somehow different.

    Bergui45, this is my clover folder, straight from my hard disk. I didn't even change the serial, please do it yourself after using the folder. CLOVER.zip

    Bergui45, I will post my folder, so that you are sure you have got the help you needed. Sakoula, good morning. Mine is an irrational fear, but let me doublecheck. I have to choose Makbook 13,1 and generate a serial number. That should be it. IF I may, I would like to ask you about my bootjng problems. I can boot from the stick, but not from the second hd containing HS. The stick manages to override Windows, internal Clover cannot. In the bios mac os does not even Appear. Clover is installed on the second ssd card, where mac os is. Thank you UT

    Bergui45, I will explain now, but let me first explain something to you. It seems to me that you don’t understand the nature of what is happening here. Every single word that is addressed to you, every single file shared is a gift for which you should be grateful. Insulting sakoula’s work after he shared his work with you and dedicated so much time to you even when it is manifest that there is some problem either with what you do or your computer was rude and unwise. Here are my ten cents. I seriously doubt anything I say may be useful because you practically already have a copy of my EFI folder. No magic in my files. All I did was to take the original folder posted, make an exact copy finding the files here and there while trying to understand what each did and then modify the config.plist following instructions. It took several tries but the final result worked not one but several times. I still have not logged into iCloud (I don’t dare) and I cannot doubleboot (the computer sees only the Windows partition) so I have to use the usb stick. I can post my folder, if you want, but as I said you practically already have it. I haven’t done anything other than what sakoula suggested And his folder worked as he said, with the problems he mentioned, right off the bat.

    Ok, I will do it tomorrow, as it is late evening here.

    I apologize for my prolonged silence but there is nothing I can contribute. I was successful simply following instructions, but I don’t really understand what is happening. What I can say is that I have reinstalled HS three times, always with the same serial number (my own), adding kexts and doing more experimenting. Always worked perfectly, quickly and without a hitch. Why should Bergui have so many problems beats me.

    Hi Bergui45. I am sorry to say that There is nothing more in which I can help you. I’m very new here, just a couple days. I have no idea whatsoever of what your problem maybe. Maybe with Sakoula’s help? Let’s ask the four people besides me and you who downloaded the back. How did you fare? Do you have anything to say?
  10. XiaoMi Mi Notebook Air 13"

    I am using a 2016 model, A06 firmware, crucial 275Gb SSD. how about your log? Also, noted that the packages has been downloaded six times. You’re the only one writing, so it is safe to say the package does work. I say this to not to criticize, but as info.
  11. XiaoMi Mi Notebook Air 13"

    I am far from an expert, but I would reuse the old one. You know it works.
  12. XiaoMi Mi Notebook Air 13"

    Please recheck your hardware against mine. If it is the same, it’s likely you forgot a step. Worked smoothly for me. Try I also the folder he sent as it is. . I tested that too. Also, I used The latest version of Cloverconfigurator vibrant. That may make a difference
  13. XiaoMi Mi Notebook Air 13"

    I would like to post some feedback. Sakoula’s instructions work fine. (Thanks!!). HS installs correctly. If you, like me, do not see your new Mac OS among the boot options at first boot, like me you forgot to choose HFS+ instead of APFS. In that case, download the apfs.efi kext and add it in the correct folder of the efi folder. I don’t have the machine with me so better check the path.

    Hi Sakoula. Thank you very much for your reply and for your work. Your instructions are detailed and clear. And work. I am installing Thanks again. UT

    Hi, guys. I would like to begin with the customary newbie apology. I am new here and I do my best to follow rules. If I don't yet, please excuse. I mean well. These are my specs, A06 BIOS version. ProcessorIntel Core i5-6200U Graphics adapterNVIDIA GeForce 940MX - 1024 MB, GDDR5, Nvidia Driver 369.09 Memory8192 MB , DDR4 2133 MHz, single-channel, firmly fitted Display13.3 inch 16:9, 1920 x 1080 pixel 166 PPI, Samsung LTN133HL09-M01, IPS, glossy: yes MainboardIntel Skylake-U Premium PCH StorageSamsung PM951 NVMe MZVLV256, 256 GB I downloaded the pack, and followed the instructions without success. I always get stuck at the lines @kec.pthread 1 @kec.corecrypto 1.0 attempting system restart And here the machine returns to Clover, endlessly. I did some reading on the net and it seems a video problem. Incidentally, there is one point where I am not sure I followed instruction correctly. The Readme says "add serial numbers to the smbios", in the plural. I can find and did set one, but I cannot see others. Thanks.
