  1. Section 1: How to make Clover default bootloader after Installing Windows on UEFI. If you installed windows on you Hackintosh and now you don’t have access to your macOS anymore this guide will help you to get back the clover as the main bootloader. The reason that this is happening is because when you install windows after installing macOS the UEFI bootloader will change from: \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI (Clover bootloader) to \EF\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi So, in order to make clover the default bootloader again you need to edit the UEFI boot entries and change the boot media file from “bootmgrfw.efi” to “BOOTX64.EFI” and here is how to do that. I personally use BOOTICEx64 which is for 64Bit version of windows and if you use 32Bit version of Windows you need to use the x86 version. Original Download Source Alternative download link. Here is what you need to do: 1. Open BOOTICE and from the tabs on the top select “UEFI” 2. Click “Edit Boot Entries” button 3. From UEFI boot entries select “Windows Boot Manager” 4. From “Boot entry configurations” change “Menu Title” from “Windows Boot Manager” to whatever name that you like, I changed mine to “macOS Sierra” because that’s the version of the macOS that I have and from “Media file” change “​\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi” to “\EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI” and finally select “Boot this entry next time” Now save the new entries by clicking “Save current boot entry” 5. By clicking the “Save current boot entry” you will see the confirmation window. Click ok and you’re done. 6. Now restart your computer and now you will see Clover’s boot menu and boot into macOS. "Thanks to Pauly for BOOTICE" Section 2: Here’s how to create a custom entry to rename the Boot Microsoft EFI Boot from EFI to "Windows 10" 1. Open clover configurator and select GUI 2. Click the + sign to add a new Boot entry. 3. From the Volume drop down menu select the EFI partition that has the “Microsoft” boot files. In my case it is the EFI (disk2) 4. Add your desired name for the new custom entry like “Windows 10” or whatever you like, Click the “Title / FullTitle” check box. Select the type of the Operating system that you are creating the custom entry for which again in this case it is Windows and then select the volume type which is an internal disk in this case. 5. Save you settings and reboot. If you have done exactly as instructed here then you will see the new entry in the clover’s boot menu. To easily hide unwanted partitions in clover's boot menu without having to create the custom entries using clover configurator see this post.
  2. I had asked this question in the 'Lenovo B570' Guide thread under the notebook forums. But considering the last activity was in january, I decided to start a thread here. Notebook is a Lenovo B570e with a i3-2350m processor & 2 GB ram. Used macinsane's guide. Currently stuck with a 'Hibernate image too old' message on OS X boot. Here's some background into how I went about installing OS X Lion. I had already installed Windows 7. I wanted to dual boot with Lion, from two partitions on the same hard drive. There were 4 existing partitions. 1 - Windows 7. 2 & 3 - Data. 4- System Reserved. I formatted one of the data partitions, to Mac OS X Extended Journaled, with MBR Partition Table. Using disk utility as explained in the guide. Restored the iAtkos L1 Lion dmg file, to an 8 GB USB flash drive, using a friend's Macbook Pro. I tried to follow the guide to a tee, including the smbios.plist & kext file. I had to shuttle back & forth between macinsane's guide, micred's Mountain Lion guide and rockinron's All-in-one guide to Vanilla Mountain Lion guide, for some bits. This was because I couldn't figure out the 'ShowAllFiles' part. Nor, the 'restoring' part. Since I've never used a Mac. Next, I installed Chameleon bootloader to the flash drive with GraphicsEnabler on. Booted with the flash drive. Checked the AHCI Sata option. RealtekRTL81xx.kext. PS/2 kexts. FakeSMC and disablers. Installed Lion to the Mac OS Journaled partition. On first boot, the GUI loaded straight away. Didn't have to copy the smbios.plist file again. Plugged in the USB keyboard. Rebooted to read up on the post-install part. Windows wouldn't boot. Stuck on the blinking cursor. I reformatted & installed Windows 7 again. Now, the boot to OS X option wouldn't appear. So I added an entry in EasyBCD for an 'EFI' Mac OSX. This time, I selected OS X, but after a few screens, it gave out the 'Hibernate image too old by {censored} seconds. Use Forcewake = y?' message & rebooted the computer. I booted to iAtkos through the flash drive & typed "$ sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0" and "$ sudo nvram "use-nvramrc?"=false" in terminal. It gave out a 'sudo: must be setuid root' message. Repaired the permissions on the OS X partition with disk utility. It still gave the same error. Booted to OS X through the iAtkos drive & added the lines "<key>Wake</key>" & "<string>no</string>" to the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file in the Extra folder & saved it. I forgot to copy it to the desktop. Wen't back & copied & it still gave the same error. Basically, I can only boot into OS X through the iAtkos USB flash drive. I'd really like some direction here. Should I go about trying to fix the 'Hibernate image too old' problem. Or just reinstall Windows 7 & OS X and using Gparted to create partitions?

  4. Hi, I've Hi, I've got an HP Envy 17 j053ea with the following spec: Intel i7-4700MQ 12 GB Ram Only USB 3.0 Ports NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M GPU Intel HD 4600 Onboard GPU 1TB HDD Windows 8 x64 It seems that whatever method of creating a USB Installer for Mavericks I always get rebooted after "loading drivers...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................*************************" I've tried UEFI and Legacy, Pandora, Pandora with Clover and other USB installer builders with clover. Here's a video of what I'm talking about - https://www.dropbox.com/s/baamze8u2gb954u/20131103_121601.mp4 I tried iAtkos ML2 and got stuck at "creating partition" in Disk Utility. Does anyone know why this keeps happening with every install attempt?
  5. Hi to all of you happy users of hackintosh community ! This is my first post here on InsanelyMac and it will be a bit longer because I have a problems that I couldn't solve without someones help who's a bit more experianced then me in tweaking and patching a hackintosh. This laptop will be a present to someone and I have only one week from now to finish it up and then I have to send it abroad. Thanks in advance. The configuration is dual boot with prior Widows 10 installed on Samsung EVO 850 - 250 GB partitioned like: 1st partion was 100 MB EFI and is now 550 MB after deleting second Windows MSR partition 2nd partiton is still 16 MB MSR Windows 3th partition is Windows 10 NTFS with 99 GB 4th partiton is Downloads NTFS with 70 GB 5th partition is OSX Extended journaled with 35 GB 6th partition is OSX Recovery Extended journaled with 620 MB 7th partition is Acronis FAT32 with 27GB It's a Dell Inspiron 7537 Notebook: Motherboard Product: 038M0M - Intel Lynx Point-LP, Intel Haswell BUS ratio: min 8 max 20, 20, 28, 31 x 100 MHz CPU and RAM: Mobile DualCore Intel Core i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz - RAM: 16GB DDR3 - 1600MHz Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 and nVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2GB Monitor: LP156WF4 Dell 890N5 @ 1920 x 1080 - Touchscreen BIOS: A14 - Audio: Realtek ALC283 - Intel 8 Series Chipset SATA AHCI WiFi: Intel Wireless N7260/Bluetooth is changed for Broadcom BCM94352HM Ethernet-RTL8168/8111 CardReader RTL8411B - 4 Intel USB 3.0 ports Dell Touchpad Webcam - DWGV8 SSD 850 EVO 250GB I have found on the internet working installer image with Sierra 10.12.4 and I placed it on the USB with TransMac and I tried to install it, but it didn't work right from the box untill I didin't find a "good" .config file with good flags for this laptop and I replaced it in the Clover. It has Clover 4049 in the EFI partition on the USB installer. That was my first problem to get Clover working on SSD but after some time I succeed to install the newest Clover 4128 on the SSD - EFI partition. I have installed at least 10 times this Sierra image on this laptop before I came here to post all of this because apparently I make always same mistake and I can't go any further with it. I hope that I did not messed too much with all of this because there is still working Windows 10 with working 4128 Clover. The only problem is that in biginning after first few times unsuccessful install of OSX I had different behavior then now of OSX if I would like to start it from SSD. In beginning, if I check flag -V and I try to start from SSD it will come to one point and it will hang enternally at that point and I must to restart notebook via the power button because it will never boot to OSX desktop without USB installer. I "played" apparently a bit too much and after changing and putting the same . config to EFI partition on Clover and sometimes even Clover will not show up untill I don't swich off the power on notebook. I went further and I thought, O.K. I will continue with installing kexts to see what I can get working. It was also not so easy and acctually I still don't know exactly which kext I really need to install and what I should avoid to install assuming I didn't use any patched DSDT cause I never make it so far. What I got it to work somehow till now with Pandora's Box (Before that I tried and other post install tools as Vietnam tool 1.9.6 with not so much succes, actually after using the Vietnam tool I got this kernel panic and immediate rebooting if I try to boot from SSD and it's never gone even after deleting the whole OSX partition and Pandora's box is noob's friendly tool) is: Booting from USB installer, Sound, Ethernet, USB (but I don't know if it's full speed or not) Some hardware monitoring info, touch pad and keyboard, trimming. I changed internal WiFi Intel N7260 card with bluetooth for the one Broadcom BCM94352HM WiFi+Bluetooth card which is here and overall advertised as working out the box with OSX but I didn't get it working untill now. Dedicated Nvidia GT 750M video card is not working and also Intel HD 4400 looks a bit too slow by opening applicatons box in the OSX. Webcam doesn't work, hibernate doesn't work, touchscreen doesn't work and booting from SSD doesn't work. This time I have installed OSX again and I have pressed F4 to extract my original DSDT file from this notebook(I don't know if it does a metter that I pulled DSDT.aml file after install of OSX and not before installation, I mean after rebooting) but I didn't boot to finish installing until I don't get good information from someone who knows where I make mistake. I only tried to boot once from SSD to see if something is changed with immediate kernel panic, but there is still one there waiting to be removed. - I have attached here Clover config file which is in the EFI partition on the USB and it's a same config file from EFI on the SSD. - Also I have attached an already patched DSDT file for Dell Inspiron 7537 which I found here in Download section but it is patched for El Capitane and is not from this laptop so I don't know if it can help. - I also added a full folder of Clover from the EFI partition on the SSD. Who can help me to bring this installation to the end ? I have not so much time to finish it so please don't hesitate to help me in it. Thanks ! Greetings from Holland ! Config file from EFI partition in Clover.7z Patched DSDT from InsanelyMac for El Capitan.7z Not patched DSDT from this Dell 7537.7z CLOVER from EFI partition on the SSD .7z
  6. Hello Everyone - As the title states I'm looking to build a dual boot workstation rig. I plan on running Adobe CS and Avid on Windows 7 and FCP and Resolve on OSX. Best case senario I'd like to be able to work with 4K material. After doing some some research I'm almost decided on using the following hardware. CPU: 4930K System Board: P9X79-E WS RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8GB) DDR3-2133 Memory Storage: 2x SSD Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB (one for each os) 4x Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM in Raid GPU: GTX 780 3GB I guess my first question is how feasable is my goal given the hardware I've chosen above? Another issue I am concerned with is CPU power and long term productivity. Having said that, I am thinking of perhaps going with the GA-Z87X-UD7-TH due to the possibility of upgrading to the Haswell-E chip when it arrives being a LGA 1150 CPU. I also like it's Thunderbolt availability, which as of yet I do not know if a hak rig would even support. So I guess thats the main point of concern for me at this moment. Which socket do I go with and If go with an LGA 1150 board which CPU do I get to hold me over until the Haswell-E arrives later this year. Many thanks in advance for any guiadance or insight you can provide.
  7. Firstly i had uefi boot enabled and legacy boot disabled and after rebooting with the usb containing windows 10, my computer made a sound like beep and then got stuck at the startup screen. Then i enabled legacy mode and disabled uefi and then i installed windows in the other partition then after enabling uefi and disabling legacy again, in clover when i click the windows option, it shows me what is in the ss. So with uefi emabled, my el capitan woupd start and with legacy enabled windows would start, cant both be in UEFI?How to fix this.
  8. Here is a way to make your Ati radeon 6470m work with clover and also To install Os X yosemite to Asus X54HY This is how i made my computer almost fully work A lot of thanks to vusun123 for the ideas and lot of helping !! Please before you start or ask read the description carefully ! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ WHAT YOU NEED 2 pics of 8GB USB to create clover usb and win 7efi usb installer A macintosh or a hackintosh ( it's not a problem if it not works fully ex.: no hardware acceleration) to create your clover usb Programs : In OS-X Downloaded OS-X yosemite from appstore Hackintosh Vietnam tool http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/210-hackintosh-vietnam-ultimate-aio-tool/ Clover configurator http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/49-clover-configurator/ Darwin dumper https://bitbucket.org/blackosx/darwindumper/downloads In Windows Windows 7.iso viewsonic EDID generator http://viewsonic-edid-editor.software.informer.com/3.1/ i have 1 TB HDD so i usually partition my disk in GPT with 3 partitions 150 GB for Windows, 677GB Data and 100GB AppleOSX ----------------------------------------------------------------- Creating the Win7 usb open your win7 iso copy all to your USB the go to efi/microsoft/ boot copy the "boot"folder one level upper now you should have and efi/boot folder download the bootmgfw-w7.efi.zip file unzip, than rename it to bootx64.efi and copy it to "your usb"/efi/boot folder ------------------------------------------------------------ PARTITIONING now you can boot with your WIN7 usb when it booted open windows CMD ( press shift + f10 to bring it up ) than write these (press enter after every line ) diskpart lis dis sel dis x ( x is the number of your hdd, usually 0 ) clean convert gpt cre par efi size=300 format quick fs=fat32 cre par msr size=128 cre par pri size=153600 format quick fs=ntfs label="Windows" cre par pri size=677400 format quick fs=ntfs label="Data" cre par pri size=102400 format quick fs=ntfs label="Apple" (If you don’t need data partition the order of partitions don’t matter but if you need DATA partition you should pay attention to the order because Yosemite creates a recovery partition and in windows you won’t able to see your DATA when yosemite is not the last partition) after partitioning exit CMD Don't install windows yet ---------------------------------------------------- CREATING CLOVER USB AND YOSEMITE INSTALLER now Go To your OS-X and create you boot USB like it Clover USB like in this link : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298027-guide-aio-guides-for-hackintosh/page-2?do=findComment&comment=2030113 IMPORTANT you must pay attention that you MUST NOT rename the partition you make for clover leave it "untitled" because if you rename it WONT boot ( im hungarian, i used Hungarian system language it also worked when i left it "NEVTELEN" ( it means untitled ), but you should probably use english system language) open your clover config.plist with clover configurator Now add ati config = "Lotus" Vram = "1024 , tick inject EDID, inject ATI, inject Vbios , set duallink to 0 ( its importatnt if you have 1366x768 resolution ) On Add macbook pro 8.2 in smbios --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- INSTALL YOSEMITE if you boot now you will have QE / CI probably with color gradient You can install yosemite to the created partition Apple partiton ( you should format it with disk utility to mac os journaled ) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EDID editing Run Darwin Dumper on Mac, its enough to tick EDID other report stuff is useless for us now.

Open the EDID txt from Darwin Dumper, look at the EDID version, it should be 01 03, if so then change it to 01 04; look at basic param, the first byte should be 80, change it to 90. After editing, open Viewsonic EDID Editor and manually input every bytes of the EDID except checksum the program will automatically calculate it. After getting your checksum, write it onto your EDID txt ( edit both EDID version, basic param and checksum in there ) then bring it to Mac.Open your config.plist with Clover Configurator, click on Graphics tab, paste your edited EDID into CustomEDID section mine looks like this ( without enter or space ) : 00FFFFFFFFFFFF0030E4E3020000000000140104902213780AA9059F5E589C26195054 00000001010101010101010101010101010101581B567E50000E302430350058C2100000 19000000000000000000000000000000000000000000FE004C4720446973706C61790A20 20000000FE004C503135365748342D544C42310060 Now if you reboot your graphics card will fully operate You can use hackintosh Vietnam tool to install clover it will install it to the created No Name partition, you should copy the config.plist from usb. Reboot go to bios: add a new boot option : name it as you wish the path should be : EFI\Clover\CloverX64.efi Now you can boot without usb Now install windows 7 to the created windows partition ( USE the usb ) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- YOSEMITE POST INSTALLION Kexts for yosemite: Use the kexts from hackintosh vietnam tool ( like USB3.0, wifi ,battery, asus fn, etc ) battery won't write the percents well, it will always be 0 % but if you click on the battery icon it will count probably good timeleft Touchpad download the latest kext from here install to the EFI partition /EFI/Clover/kexts/other/ http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/1948-elan-and-focaltech-smart-touchpad-driver-mac-os-x/ two figure gestures will wok only if you change scrolling settings (in settings --> trackpad) AUDIO use the 64 bit version of this pkg, http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/480-voodoohda-282-r86-3264bit-installer-vt2021-51/ HDMI is working - isn't is beautiful?

  9. Hola de nuevo, No consigo arrancar el Windows 10, se me queda colgado en la ventana del icono de Windows. Alguien me podria dar algunos consejos a seguir para hacer que el bootloader funcione? He estado mirando, buscando, y todo lo que encuentro es para UEFI, en mi caso ( LEGACY), no encuentro nada ni nadie que este en la misma situación. Como he escrito anteriormente ( en otro post), no tengo nada de Clover ni de conocimientos, pero aprendo rápido si alguien me puede hechar un cable. Muchas gracias por todo. Saludos

    Compatible Notebooks

    First of all, Hello everyone. I've just joined Insanely Mac(and cleared a couple of fairly simple quizzes before I could actually post this). Basically, I am a student residing in India where Apple products aren't as cheap as what you could get in U.S. or Singapore. The 15' Macbook Pro range starts from about $2000(even after student discounts its somewhere near $1850 or so) here which makes it quite unaffordable and unrealistic for me. Therefore, I am looking for some Notebook/Laptop that can be Hackintoshed to provide almost similar to original Mac experience, if not identical. Anything that costs $1000(Rs. 50,000) or lesser and meets the above requirements would do good. Ofcourse, I cannot expect a Hackintosh to work flawlessly out of the box, but yes, I need something that would require minimum tweaking or messing with kexts etc and something that is stable, reliable and fairly usable. Looking forward to helpful replies. Edit: I forgot to mention, I would be dual booting OS X and Windows7 even though I would be spending 80% of the time with OS X.
  11. For those wanting to try Windows 10, I thought I would create a short guide on how to create a Clover/UEFI Windows 10 installer with Rufus and clean install. This guide is tailored for legacy BIOS machines but should also work in systems with native UEFI firmware. Prerequisites 1. Access to OSX and Windows to run Rufus and install Clover 2. Install Rufus: Download from here 3. Download the Windows 10 insider preview ISO (build 10074) from here. Edit 29/7/15 RTM build 10240 available!: Download MediaCreationTool. Making the UEFI Windows Installer 1. In Windows, Insert a 4GB or larger USB and start Rufus with the following settings Partition scheme and target system device = MBR for UEFI computer File System FAT32 2. Click the “Create a bootable disk using ISO image” checkbox and the CDROM icon to browse/choose your downloaded ISO 3. Click Start & OK to burn the image to the USB. Notice the USB takes on the name of the original ISO. 4. After the image has been burned to the USB, copy bootx64.efi from the /efi/boot folder of the Windows ISO/DVD into /efi/microsoft/boot. Rename the file to "bootmgfw.efi" and also rename cdboot.efi to cdboot.bak. For Windows 7, you need to extract bootmgfw.efi from "install.wim" eg using 7-Zip, open the iso and navigate to \sources\install.wim\1\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi and copy to efi\microsoft\boot on the USB. Installing Legacy Clover (for legacy BIOS machines to boot the installer in UEFI mode) 1. Install Clover onto the USB drive (in OSX) with the “use alternative booting PBR” option ticked as shown below. Note - you can also install legacy Clover onto the USB in Windows using the Bootice program - see post#23 2. Copy the config.plist, DSDT/SSDT.aml file(s) which are specific to your system into the Clover folder - Put config.plist in /EFI/CLOVER directory
 - Put DSDT.aml in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched - Put FakeSMC.kext and other kexts required in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.x (where x is your version of OSX) Installation of Windows 10 1. Create free space on the target hard drive for Windows 10. This can be done in OSX using Disk Utility or in Windows with Disk Management/Diskpart.exe. 2. It is recommended to temporarily disconnect all hard drives except the target hard drive when installing or updating Windows 10. 3. Boot the computer with the Installer USB, pressing <F12> (or whatever your system’s BIOS boot selection key is) to choose the USB and then pressing the number <6> key when you see Clover’s flashing underscore 4. At the Clover Main Menu, choose “Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from your_USB_name” ---> start the Windows 10 installer GUI 5. Follow the rest of the steps in this guide - http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-windows-10-clean-install.html Notes Choose the “Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)” option and just select the Unallocated Space for the installation —> the correct partitions will be automatically set up At the first reboot, boot to the USB again but at the Clover Main Menu, select “Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI” As the final step, don’t forget to install Clover on the hard drive . Major version upgrades through Windows Update (as opposed to a clean install) may overwrite the bootsector so legacy Clover might need to be re-installed. I recommend clean installing instead of letting Windows update perform an upgrade. If you run Windows 10 or 8 with Windows 7, you should turn off "Windows Hybrid Boot" to avoid chkdsk running every time you change from booting Windows 8/10 to Windows 7. Chameleon/Clover Emergency Boot Disk As an added bonus, by adding the attached Chameleon boot file to the root of the USB, you can use the installer as an emergency boot disk for Clover or Chameleon: Set your BIOS to boot first from USB ---> when you see the flashing underscore, press <1> to boot with Chameleon or <6> to boot with Clover .
