    FrDakota got a reaction from gengik84 in [pre-release] macOS High Sierra   
    I don't like the act of disabling the little security GateKeeper provides.
     
    The best method is to do a right click (or Ctrl + Click for single button mice) on the program then Open.
     
    It will launch the program and remember it.

    FrDakota got a reaction from maleorderbride in Clover General discussion   
    I submited that question page 584 but got no answer then I found the solution.
     
    It is not a Clover bug, but an Apple way of working which inserts a boot entry at startup.
     
    You have to delete the hidden folder .IABootFiles at the root of your macOS drive.

    Of course I tried that - with no success. Setting any boot drive here was simply ignored.
     
    But actually I have found a way to solve this:
     
    Seems that there was a value in NVRAM that would set the partition with the Yosemite Installer as my boot partition, and I think it was the installer itself who set this value. But what I found out is that clearing NVRAM is not enough in my case, the value I did not want to see there was magically reappearing after each reboot. So yeah, since I can only use NVRAM Emulation, there was also this "nvram.plist". So even when you clear your NVRAM, it seems to get repopulated with the values from nvram.plist on restart, and that was something I simply not expected. You could even call this a bug, maybe?
     
    Anyways, after clearing BOTH NVRAM and the plist, my boot Drive was set to normal, but I still could see the Installer in my Boot menu.
     
    After investigating further, I saw that the Installer apparently did set up my partition I launched it from as a bootable drive! Similar to an installer USB stick, you can suddenly see a (hidden) Folder called ".IABootFiles" and there was a "boot.efi" and "kernelcache". Bingo! Removing this fiolder also got me rid of the Clover entry.
     
    Just FYI, in case if s.o. stumbles upon the same problem.

    Thanks! Ive been hunting around trying to figure out how to get rid of this mystery "Boot OS X Install From [Name Of You Drive]" item that appears in clover after an incomplete OS install. 
     
    sudo rm -rf /.IABootFiles

    I successfully hid the Thunderbolt update 1.2 under Yosemite.
     
    To do that use the softwareupdate command (no need to do a sudo).
     
     
    Because putting the latest firmware revision in SMBIOS worked for Mavericks but not for Yosemite.
