    Why don't you change your GUI > Timeout to 0, and SystemParameters > boot-args to "npci=0x3000 slide=0"? Have you tried it already? Edited: As an alternative to the recommendation from Maniac10, you can just delete the current EFI folder after copying it into another place and reinstall the latest Clover. And modify the new config.plist according to your individual requirements based on your previous one. When you have a pre-installed config.plist in EFI folder, Clover doesn't touch it. So you have to delete your config.plit before installing a new revision to get a proper config.plist for the new revision.

    Could you elaborate on what you mean by "auto boot" and attach your config.plist?

    How about checking your config.plist? For some reason, the DefaultVolume under Boot might have been changed from your ML HDD to MacHDD, the Clover default. If it's the case, you should change it to your ML HDD again.
  4. Hi, cVaD, Faster than before, build time from 60 sec(v2.5.1) to 19 sec. Impressive! Info on Caches and CPU Features are very detailed and helpful. I love your BDU, too. All of your tools are great. Great work, thank you very much! P.S. One tiny thing. Personally I liked the font in earlier versions.

    How are you, Tony? Did you have a nice trip? Thank you for enlightening me. I didn't know my question has such a history. I think I'd better wait to see. Happy Holidays~

    Dear Dev Team, I have one strange thing regarding Clover installation. I don't think this is a big issue, but for the beginners, they may suffer from the difference. So for a widespread use of Clover, I think this thing may need a touch. Even though I choose drivers in the Installer as follows; the result is as follows; All three driver folders, including drivers32, driver64, drivers64UEFI, are installed. And all efi files are installed in the drivers64UEFI. So I have to delete 3 files out of them - DataHubDxe-64.efi, OsxLowMemFixDrv-64.efi, and PartitionDxe-64.efi - to boot normally. Otherwise, the booting process stops after I choose the boot drive in the Clover boot option screen. Can this difference be handled? Thank you & Merry Christmas!!!

    Great! Congrats and Happy Holidays!

    Same here. A smaller Giga logo. But Clover boot screen is in the full size, 1920x1080. If you can't see the full size in Clover, how about checking config.plist. PatchVBios=Yes under Graphics there worked in my case. Refer to slice's comment > http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/284656-clover-general-discussion/page__st__740#entry1874339

    Hi, eurisko1 Did you change the resolution parameters in /EFI/Boot/refit.config?
  10. Clover General discussion

    Hi dmazar, This is just for reference. Mine(almost 20 sec) is much slower than Mrengles' system(about 10 sec). His booting time is quite impressive. Meantime, given that my system has relatively old specifications, my speed of 20 seconds seems not that bad. My system has; CPU:i7-2600 Sandy Bridge (3.4GHz) MoBo: Giga Z68MX-UD2H-B3(U1c UEFI Bios) VGA: GTX460 RAM: 1333MHz 16GB RAM (set to 1600MHz) HDD: Intel G2 SSD 80GB(SATA2) - my mobo has no fast boot option - vga has no UEFI GOP driver - UEFI Clover timeout = 0 - no quiet options in retif.conf - OS X on SATA2 SSD http://youtu.be/8BvAyG_jOs8

    Thank you so much, Pene! On this, I'd like to challenge it on an experimental spirit as always, but some time later. :wink2: As of now, I just copy and keep your tip to Evernote. Thanks for the advice.

    OK, thanks. I tested with the 1920x1080 display unplugged. Please find attached a zipped file, which contains two folders, each of which contains preboot.log and a boot bmp under 1680x1050 & 1280x1024 in refit.conf. My config.plist is also included to show you the Graphic flags under which I tested. Thank you very much in advance. [EDITED] Pene, I think I got why. Regarding 1680 display, I changed its DVI connector to No. 1 of the GTX460 card. Then, it displayed a full 1680x1050 screen like a charm. (GraphicsInjector=Yes, PatchVBios=Yes.) When the display was connected to No. 2 DVI port again, it downgraded to 800x600 display. Therefore, it's not a Clover issue, but the different output capacity of vga card ports, I guess. *** With 1920x1080, a screenshot of the Clover boot has a dimension of 1920x1080 when I saw it in OS X. I guess that means the screen is contracted in the booting stage. One thing I'd like to mention is that this 1920x1080 display is connected via a DVI-HDMI adapter (via-DVI, lcd-HDMI). Do you think this adapter can make any difference? [EDITED AGAIN !!!] - SOLVED Pene, you really made me rock'n roll Actually, months ago, I was trying to flash nvidia rom using NVFLASH, but fruitless. That's because I didn't know what I should touch. So, then I gave up and forgot it. What I learned from those countless trials? How to flash video rom. I became very daring in doing it. In the beginning, when I decided to flash the card, you know, I was trembling actually. BUT, today, your comment on "Non-Native Display Panel" option in NiBiTor changed the whole thing! After my video ROM was modified in NiBiTor and flashed in NVFlash, the whole black edges are gone!!! in 1920x1080 resolution. UNBELIEVABLE! I'd fought this resolution headache for almost two years until now! At first, with 1680x1050, and then with 1920x1080 as I got this 27" display. Now, with GTX460 and Clover, I can enjoy a full booting screen in any display, 1680x1050 or 1920x1080. Thank you, Thank Slice, Thank Mrengles, Thank the whole Team!!! God Bless Clover!!! P.S. As a bonus, I got a small and cute boot screen of the mobo's native instead of the extended one. And I changed the attachment to new successful ones - preboot.log in 1920x1080 + screenshot. P.S-2: Please look at the cursor position. There's no spare space. Archive.zip

    Pene, thanks a lot for the informative reply. I guess I have to google Nibitor. What I wanted to say was that before PatchVBios option I couldn't see mode 4 1920x1080. So, PatchVBios was a good tip to me 'cause I can have a higher resolution Clover boot screen even thought the monitor screen is isn't fully used. For a long time, I have thought NVIDIA ROM is the reason for those black lines on the booting process, but didn't know how to solve it. I hope Nibitor can be a solution. Thanks. Yes, you're right. The log was from booting with 27" display as main. I just attached it to show that the mode 4 1920x1080 is recognized by Clover, but as you said, I guess it may look confusing. Thanks for the accurate comment.
