    Clover General discussion

    M.B.: Asus P5G41T-M BIOS: AMI v02.61 CPU: 3.2 GHz Pentium Dual-Core (E6700) Memory: 8GB DDR3 Video: GeForce GTS 250 1024 MB OS: 10.9.5 Clover Version: r2953 Hard Drives: 2 x IDE, 2 x SATA I currently have Chameleon (2.2svn) working O.K, but would like to upgrade to Clover. My system has 2 IDE drives and 2 SATA drives. Mavericks is installed on one of the SATA drives (a SSD). In the BIOS my normal drive order is for the 2 IDE drives to be first, followed by the 2 SATA drives. Chameleon is installed on the Mavericks SATA drive. I have installed Clover on a USB drive. If I use “CloverEFI 64-bits SATA” I get a either a VERY long delay before the GUI appears (over 30 minutes!) and then most of my partitions are shown (one is missing), or it just hangs forever. If I unplug the IDE drives the delay goes down to about 35 seconds, and the SATA partitions are then shown. If I disable Legacy Scan, with both IDE and SATA drives connected, then the delay is about 60 seconds (instead of 30 minutes), but only the SATA partitions are shown (there should be one OSX partition shown from the IDE drives). If I use “CloverEFI 64-bits BiosBlockIO” then the delay to the GUI is minimal (a few seconds), but the partitions that are shown are only from the first 2 drives (as set in the BIOS). If I change the drive order (in the BIOS) I can get any of my partitions to show up, including those on the IDE drives, but only if they are on the first 2 drives. I seems like Clover stops scanning drives after the first 2. For my current multi-boot system to keep working I need for my Mavericks drive to be the 4th one, but at present it will only show up quickly in the GUI if I make it either the first or second drive and use BiosBlockIO. So, the 64-bit driver is slow, and rarely shows any partitions from my IDE drives, and the BIOSBlockIO driver is fast but only shows partitions from my 1st 2 drives. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can get partitions on my 4th drive to show up quickly and reliably in the GUI? Thanks for any help you can provide. RoseMan
