  1. Hi there. I'm new to this site but not totally new to hack. I've had a hack since 10.4 and the latest version I ran was 10.9, not totally fixed but it worked to what I needed. Now I want to make the machine run as good as it can. I can see there has been a lot of changes/upgrades/new solutions since I installed my hack and I have a hard time to catch up. I've been able to boot and install macOSX and now I need the POST installation. I tried to install the clover EFI boot loader with these settings: and found the DSDT.aml and SSDT-0.aml from HERE found the apfs.efi and placed it in EFI -> EFI -> CLOVER -> driver64 and these kext in here: But when I boot it up this is the first bootscreen I have. No partions, no mouse control, no nothing. if I exit clover this screen appear. and now everything works. What is wrong? Cheers Soren
  2. Hello Insanelymac, I've successfully installed Mac OS X Sierra on 2 32gb flash drives with them as a JBOD Raid. I can only get into the hackintosh if I use another USB flash drive with Clover installed on it. I've tried using a clover installer however that just installs on my Raid Disk. I've also noticed that when I open clover configurator, there are 2 EFI partitions but both of them were empty. I've tried moving the contents of the EFI on my Raid disk that clover installed but my BIOS does not detect it. Also when I use the other flash drive to boot into clover, there is another volume called "BOOT OS X" right next to my Raid Disk Volume that I use to boot from. I just want to install and boot off of my Raid usb flash drives. Really running out of options, Thanks guys.

Download High Sierra from the Apple App Store Prepare USB Flash Storage Pen Insert USB Storage Launchpad / Other → Disk Utility Choose your Flash Storage Pen from left panel Click Erase Settings: Name: USB Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) Scheme: GUID Partition Map Click Erase Create macOS High Sierra Installer Launchpad / Other → Teminal Copy and Paste into Terminal: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --volume /Volumes/USB/ Press: Enter Enter password: Type: Y Press: Enter Done! You have now created the macOS High Sierra Installer. In order to boot and install macOS onto your computer the installer requires the Clover boot loader from Clover team. The Clover boot loader contains, a configuration file ( config.plist) and kernal extensions (kexts), the config.plist and kexts are specific for each Hackintosh desktop / laptop computer build. Clover boot loader also has many other files and folders. I have already prepared a USB drive using the Clover installer and made edits to config.plist for this build, you can download and copy over my EFI Folder and skip steps in Spoiler below, then paste the downloaded EFI folder in the hidden USB EFI / ESP partition on your High Sierra USB installer drive. See the spoiler, using Clover installer to make High Sierra USB installer bootable. View the hidden macOS High Sierra Installer's EFI/ESP partition Open Terminal Copy and Paste into Terminal: diskutil list Enter Mount the USB EFI / ESP Partition onto the Desktop Again, from Terminal. Copy and Paste into Terminal: diskutil mount disk3s1 ** Identify your EFI partition from diskutil list command, in the example image above my external USB EFI is listed as disk3s, yours maybe different ** 3. Enter. The hidden EFI / ESP partition is now mounted on your desktop. Copy EFI Folder to USB EFI / ESP Partition ( Don't use the post install EFI folder at top of page, use post install EFI only after macOS High Sierra is installed ) 1. Download the PRE INSTALL EFI Folder here >> EFI.zip 2. Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste downloaded EFI folder into the mounted USB EFI / ESP partition. The bootable USB installer for macOS High Sierra is ready to use! INSTALL macOS HIGH SIERRA Insert the macOS High Sierra USB Installer into computer USB port. Start PC and immediately press keyboard F8. From Asus Boot Menu, choose your USB thumb drive. 4. Clover boot menu 5. Choose - Boot OS X install from Install macOS High Sierra.. Later in the guide, I will explain how to remove the extra entries on the boot menu, so you would have just High Sierra Icon and / or Windows. The extra entries are removed in config.plist in the uploaded EFI / Clover folder that I have provided. 6. Wait few mins! 7. Choose Languge 8. Select Disk Utility 9. From Disk Utility Menu --> View / Show All Devices 10. If Samsung 960 EVO drive is not visible in Disk Utility, follow these steps inside spoiler below. 11. Erase, disk. Give Name / Format: Mac OS Extended ( Journaled) / Scheme: GUID Partition Map 12. Partition, Format: APFS and apply 13. From macOS Utilities screen select Install macOS 14. Continue 15. Agree 16. Select Drive Macintosh or whatever you named it. 17. macOS is now installing 18. Wait... 19. Success ! POST INSTALLATION So far, you are using the macOS High Sierra USB installer to boot High Sierra. The USB installer EFI /ESP partition contains the downloaded EFI / Clover folder allowing you to boot to High Sierra desktop. So at this moment you can only boot High Sierra with the help of Clover on the USB installers hidden EFI / ESP partition. Next, steps is to make High Sierra boot without the need of the USB installer. Copy POST EFI folder to your High Sierra EFI / ESP Partition on your drive When you created the USB High Sierra installer, you mounted the EFI / ESP partition and copied over the EFI folder that I provided for the Asus Z370-G. Next, mount the hidden EFI/ESP partition on your High Sierra system drive. Then copy the >> or POST EFI folder to your macOS High Sierra system drive . To do this, follow steps below. 1. Identify discs to Mount with Terminal command: diskutil list ** Your disk IDENTIFIER may be different, the images are examples from my system ** 2. Terminal command below to Mount macOS EFI/ESP partition: diskutil mount disk0s1 3. System drive, EFI / ESP partition is mounted on desktop 4. Drag & Drop OR Copy & Paste EFI / ESP folder from EFI - POST-INSTALL over to EFI / ESP drive partition: 5. Done! You can now boot and use macOS High Sierra on your computer without the need for the USB device Mostly everything should now be working if you used the same hardware that I listed in parts. In the rest of this guide will explain some basic troubleshooting steps, how install NVIDIA web drivers, how sound was installed.. etc. STEPS TO EDIT CLOVER CONFIG.PLIST 1. You need to mount the EFI / ESP partition to edit the Clover config.plist. Previously, the guide used teminal commands diskutil list and diskutil mount to mount hidden EFI/ESP partitions. This guide will now use an app to mount the EFI / ESP partition. Download @Micky1979 >>ESP Mounter Pro on InsanelyMac and use it to mount the EFI / ESP partitions so that you can view, make edits to config.plist, add extra kexts if needed etc. A quick peak at the EFI / Clover contents, highlighting most common files and folders. 2. Download >> Clover Configurator from mackie100, it is used to edit and make changes to config.plist. Open mounted EFI partition, navigate to EFI / Clover, make a copy of config.plist and rename it config.BAK. Then drag and drop conf.plist onto desktop. Make changes, save and drag & drop back inside EFI partition. Clover Configurator default screen, always save before quitting Clover Configurator! Some people will be very familiar with how to find and configure config.plist, I'm listing this guide with extra steps for those new to Hackintosh. BASIC TROUBLESHOOTING TIP You might make changes to config.plist with Clover Configurator or add kexts and then discover that you can no longer reach High Sierra desktop or boot. The USB installer can be used to boot your Hackintosh ( I mentioned it was a handy troubleshooting tool ). The USB installers Clover boot loader can boot your computer to the High Sierra desktop. You can then mount the EFI/ESP partition and undo config.plist edits or delete last added kexts that have prevented you from booting to your High Sierra Desktop or just replace the whole EFI folder on your computer with the EFI folder from the USB installer. If the above troubleshooting was unsuccessful and you still can't boot your Hackintosh. From the Clover boot screen, enter Clover options: Select Boot macOS from Macintosh Then press spacebar Check: Verobse (-v) Return Enter The Verbose (-v) option will point to where in the startup process your Hackintosh stops, it's also worth checking BIOS settings before starting any troubleshooting. You can then search in the InsaneleyMac forums for a solution, or ask other members. HOW TO DISABLE / ENABLE SIP Sometimes when troubleshooting or installing kexts, you may have to disable Apple System Integrity Protection ( SIP ). To disable or enable SIP, mount the EFI / ESP partiton using ESP Mounter Pro or Terminal then edit config.plist with the Clover Configurator. Example: Disable SIP in Clover Configurator: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x67 Partially disable: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x3 ( Clover Default ) Enable: Rt Variables / CsrActiveConfig --> Enter: 0x0 TIDY CLOVER BOOT SCREEN Clover adds extra MacOS and Windows entries on the Clover boot menu. Below is what my Clover menu initially looked like after installing Mac OS High Sierra and adding a Windows drive to my build. The High Sierra Clover theme is from >> hirakujira I wanted the Clover boot menu to just show Mac OS High Sierra and Windows. Remove extra entries using Clover Configurator Add the Preboot string to config.plist ( Removes Apple Preboot entries ) Add theRecovery string to config.plist ( Removes the Mac OS High Sierra recovery option ) Set Scan / Legacy checkbox to false in config.plist ( Removes the extra Windows entries ) After applying the settings in Clover Configurator, save and reboot. Minimalist Clover boot screen. MULTIBOOT WITH WINDOWS Temporarily disconnect / remove your High Sierra Drive from your Hackintosh Computer. Install a 2nd drive inside the computer then install Windows on it. Reattach your High Sierra Drive. Clover will detect your Windows and High Sierra drive when you start your computer. I already had Windows 10 as an EFI install on a Samsung 500GB EVO SSD on another computer. After completing my Hackintosh I then simply attached the Samsung EVO SSD into the new built Hackintosh. Upon rebooting it was detected by Clover. So I have two drives, Windows on the Samsung EVO and High Sierra on the NVMe Samsung EVO 960. NVIDIA / WEB DRIVERS *** There is many Nvidia Web Drivers for different builds / updates of macOS High Sierra *** Some times you may have to reinstall or update your Nvidia web drivers after a macOS update. To install the proper Nvidia Web driver ( for GTX10 Series ), collect the following information from your macOS High Sierra installation. You can find this information in "About This Mac" and clicking on the System Report button. In the lefthand window, click on Software. macOS High Sierra Version Number macOS High Sierra Build Number Using this >> Nvidia Web Drivers Link. identify your build number and download WebDriver As an example, I have build number 17C88 and I downloaded WebDriver-378.10.10.25.102.pkg. Configure Nvidia Web driver in config.plist using Clover Configurator Mount EFI partition and drag and drop config.plist onto desktop and open with Clover Configurator. Enable the following in config.plist: 1. System Parameters / NvidiaWeb = True ( tick ) 2. Graphics / ig-platform-id = 0x59120003 ( Intel & Nvidia ) 3. Graphics / Inject Intel = True ( tick ) Save config.plist and drag and drop back into the EFI partition.

Continuing to use the port limit patch can cause problems as it causes access outside a fixed array bounds. Access outside a fixed array bound can result in other memory locations being overwritten, those other memory locations will contain data that you don't won't overwritten!. So the port limit patch is not recommended for long term use. Ports limit patch is good for macOS USB installer purpose. Ports limit patch is disabled in my POST INSTALL EFI folder. Below is the USB ports limit patch shown in clover configurator: FIX Note, external 2x USB2 ports HS09 and HS10 are deliberately disabled to get port count below 15. If you have a different motherboard you can use IORegistryExplorer for port discovery and eliminate some ports to get below the 15 port limit. You can create an SSDT for port limit to use with USBInjectAll.kext. Or, If you are not keen on creating the SSDT file, then you can use "uia_exclude=" boot flag in config.plist and have USBInjectAll.kext exclude those ports. Rehabman has a great guide on port discovery & SSDT. >>Creating a Custom SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext When you know what ports you want to eliminate, then you would set custom boot flags using "uia_exclude=" in config.plist. USBInjectAll.kext would then ignore those ports listed by "uia_exclude=" boot flag. Example: using "uia_exclude=" boot flag to keep USB port below 15 uia_exclude=HS07;HS08;HS09;HS10;HS11;HS13;HS14;SS07;SS08;SS09;SS10 If you have Asus Z370-G as per this guide then don't use custom boot flags as it's already done with SSDT-UIAC.aml Disable Ports Limit Patch: SSDT-UIAC.aml ( USB PORTS FIX ) My ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth card is installed in motherboard slot: PCIE_X1_2 the ABWB 802.11AC WI-FI with Bluetooth card USB cable is attached on internal USB1112 header (HS12) on the motherboard. If you have a Wifi card with Bluetooth in a different PCIE slot then remove SSDT-UIAC.aml from EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED and download SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl and change HS12 for appropriate port and save SSDT-UIAC-ALL.dsl as ACPI Machine Language Binary and place file in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/PATCHED. IMESSAGES This worked for me on my first attempt, I suggest using an Apple WiFi card for hassle free iMessages etc... I'm using an original >> Apple BCM943602CS WIFI+bluetooth module and adapter, this has native support in macOS High Sierra and needs no kexts / drivers. It works out of the box! If you can't get a hold of this card used in this build, then try sourcing a PCIe adapter and fitting an iMac WiFi card to it. Purchase adapter on >> Ebay or Amazon Apple iMac WiFi card, part Number >> 607-8967 Or use a MacBook Air WiFi card & adapter, it would directly replace the Asus Wifi card and free up PCIe slots.

  6. Hi Everyone, Hoping someone can help me, so i managed to update from sierra to high sierra on my hackintosh however, after the update installed my usb ports do not work so neither do my keyboard or mouse, now i know this is because i did not place the usb kext file into the efi clover folder, is there anyway to do this through the initial clover bootloader screen? or do i have to reinstall sierra again and go through the whole process, reason i dont want to do this is because i would have format the ssd and i did not back up some files which i dont want to lose, if any one can give me some advise please, id really appreciate it. Thanks.
  7. Now I successfully installed 10.11.6, but when I try to install 10.12 with current EFI configure, it dosen't works . So is any buddy used this matherboard and installed 10.12.+ ?
  8. EFI for Sapphire Radeon HD5450

    Hi, Im trying to get my Sapphire Radeon HD 5450 to work in my Mac Pro 3.1. I found this thread and I tried flashing the bios onto my card with no luck. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/311454-efi-bios-for-sapphire-hd5450/ Im getting an error about the ROM chip not being big enough, is there a smaller ROM I can flash? I also have a Dell Radeon HD 5450, which i think has a bigger chip as it shows up with the same chip as my 6950 in ATIWinFlash (the 6950 uses 128kb roms). Does anyone have the efi files for the 5450, I think I can integrate them into the ROM myself. EDIT: I tried using this to update the rom files of both the dell and the sapphire: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299614-asus-eah6450-video-bios-uefi-gop-upgrade-and-gop-uefi-binary-in-efi-for-many-ati-cards/ Im still getting the same error:

  10. Hello everyone, I've finally managed to install Windows 10 in the same HDD as macOS Sierra, the problem is that my laptop boots directly into Windows, it won't let me go to clover. However, if I boot from my installation usb i can boot into clover and choose Windows or Sierra. I have already tried to reinstall Clover but it will keep booting into Windows. I have also tried to rename bootmgfw.efi to bootmgfw-orig.efi and copy the clover efi into the Windows efi folder and renaming as bootmgfw.efi. It will only work until I boot Windows, next time it will boot into Windows directly again. Please help
  11. Hello, i have two hard disk in my unit, one's formated as GPT with EFI partition & has few macOS partitions in it, the other is MBR legacy with 1 macOS + 1 Windows 10. When i tell the unit to boot the legacy OS, it doesn't seem to : It shows me the EFI Clover bootloader (i can't differenciate with legacy one since i use different theme). That happens even when i set my bios to boot legacy only..! I'm quite new to EFI so i don't get where's the issue here. Please help? Thanks
  12. In my BIOS machine laptop, I have noticed that the system is much slower when booting in EFI mode through clover. I have installed Windows 10 in EFI mode on a GPT formatted drive, this also means I cannot boot in Legacy mode (though I'm sure there is a way), but that doesn't matter, I just want to know why this is happening and ways to fix it. After system has booted and done all post-boot procedures, I notice in task manger that System process is using up the entire disk bandwidth, the drive almost never stops reading and/or writing or seeking or whatever the System task is doing. Sometimes after a really long time after booting, the drive will calm down to little activity, but once I wake the screen (not system sleep just display sleep), the hard disk goes nuts and System task does its work. Its rather annoying and I would like to know how to fix this or at least lower it to a reasonable level. Most tasks will perform very well but when its a task that takes heavy disk usage (gaming [untested], software installs, etc.) will perform hardly at all. I have also noticed that my available RAM is not all of it. I have 4 GB of RAM in the laptop and windows only sees 3.96 GB, and it does not say (amount) usable, it just shows 3.96 as my final amount, changing MSCONFIG settings to use all 4096 MB causes ABSOLUTE slowdown that it would take me 30 minutes to boot and 20 to log in! So I have no idea why this RAM thing is happening but removing the RAM preferences from MSCONFIG allowed the system to run normally (3.96 of system RAM to windows). The RAM is not much of a bother but I would like to fix the system issue. Please share any thoughts. If this is in the wrong category or place, I do apologize, I couldn't find a category that best fit other than this one.
  13. Problema bootloader Sierra

    Sono riuscito ad installare sierra, l'unica pecca è che non riesco completamente a rendere bootabile l'hard disk con clover. quando faccio partire il boot di clover senza usb mi appare la mela e accanto molte scritte. qualcuno ha qualche suggerimento? grazie
  14. Hello, these are 3 issues ive had on my 4790k clover build, since day one, and through many OSs, and I have never found a solution to any of them. Here are the issues: 1) My Ram has always shown as under-clocked. I have 1866 speed Ram, but it has ALWAYS shown as 1777 speed in the Mac install (ive been through yosemite, cap, and now sierra, have updated clover every now and then etc, same issue). The bios and the windows install both see correct speed. 2) Bios sees the Mac install as several duplicated devices (ie, if I go to bios to choose boot device, or i press f8 on boot for boot menu, it shows "mac os 256gb ssd etc" like 10 times in the list. Eventually, the list grows to a point where it will no longer boot until I clear CMOS and get it back down to being listed once, about every other month. 3) Shutdown speed has always been extremely slow. I have an SSD, and even when the install is clean and new, this issue exists. It takes about 45 seconds or more to shutdown (bootup is still fast, about 10 seconds). This is very annoying, it should take about 3 seconds to shutdown. Please help me with these, guys. Thanks My hardware is: 4790k CPU, Asus z97 Pro Wifi AC mobo, 16gb of 1866 ram, samsung SSD, 980ti, using clover on uefi

  19. Update (4/25/16): With the guidance of Slice, I was able to reset the flags on my EFI(disk0s1) partition. Now Clover installer/updater correctly mounts and updates the bootloader in the EFI partition. 1. I dowloaded the most current gparted (v2016) and there is now a new flag called ESP in addition to the boot flag on the disk0s1 EFI partition. 2. Apparently, the older gparted (v2009-2010) I was using wasn't showing me all the flags on the partition. 3. I double checked the technical specs for OSX EFI partitions and there is supposed to be those two flags (boot and ESP) when using gparted to view the drive. 4. I turned both flags off and then rewrote them both back by turning them back on within gparted for the EFI partition (disk0s1). That seemed to do the trick. There may have been some data corruption on the boot sector area. 5. The most current version of clover installer/updater v3438 was able to now mount my EFI partition and update the bootloader correctly. The other possibility is that there was a slight change to the clover installer that resolved my drive mounting issue within the clover installer package. Either way, I am relieved.--------------------- I have been having issues with Clover (most current and slightly older versions) not wanting to install to my hidden EFI partition on my SSD OSX installation drive (disk0s1). I didn't have this issue when i was running Yosemite. Clover updated as it should to my hidden EFI partition and I used UEFI boot without problem. I decided to update my system to El Capitan doing a clean install. I wiped my SSD using Disk Utility. I first errased the drive, reformatted to a new partition (GUID HFS) and created my UEFI USB El Capitan loader. I installed El Capitan to the SSD without issue. After installation, both the EFI and the OSX partition where created properly along with the recovery partition. I rebooted using the UEFI USB and configured OSX after the welcome screen. I then tried to run the latest version of Clover for the UEFI installation and it failed as it couldn't open the EFI hidden partition and install the kexts and Clover. It basically failed to mount the EFI partition and install to the EFI partition. I even mounted the EFI partition on disk0s1 where my OSX install was on my SSD and it didnt create any files or folders in the partition. I did create an EFI folder with everything in my root OSX partition instead (very odd). I double and triple checked that i selected UEFI as I always do and that the drive was indeed the OSX SSD installation drive. I manually mounted disk0s1 EFI partition and it had nothing from clover in it. I wiped the EFI partition and tried again without success. I reloaded my GA-Z97MX Gaming5 firmware v6 again and it still failed to load clover into the EFI partition. It did create a EFI folder in my root directory for OSX with all the correct files but i couldn't boot to it using UEFI (YES- i was selecting UEFI from the menu, i have done this successfully on Mavericks and Yosemite many times before) If I move the folder and files from the root EFI folder to the EFI partition, I can boot OSX using UEFI I used gparted to reformat the SSD and try to do another fresh install of OSX again thinking that Disk Utility didn't get rid of all the old bootloader info. Clover couldn't mount the hidden EFI partition on disk0s1. I could do it manually though. I manually mounted the EFI boot partition for my SSD and moved all the clover/mulitbeast files over there. I was able to again boot UEFI SSD El Capitan. When I try to update clover, it doesn't open the hidden EFI partition or update the files in it. It does, however, create an EFi folder in my OSX root with the new Clover bootloader files there. ------------------------------------------------ Original post: Background facts: I have done this successfully many times with both Mavericks and Yosemite in the past using the Clover UEFI booloader 1. I clicked uefi 2. The hidden EFI partition exists on my SSD (disk0s1) OSX install 3. I tried reformatting the drive using gparted and Disk Utility as was outlined in the guides 4. I tried erasing just the EFI partition and changing the file structure 5. I reloaded my GA-Z97MX Gaming5 v6 firmware 6. I did check off the box for loading Clover as uefi 7. I told Clover to install into the ssd OS X drive (I doubled and triple checked this) 8. I booted everything using Uefi from both my F12 option and BIOS option - I don't Legacy boot 9. I tried the most recent versions of Clover. I also tried an older version of Clover for curiosity. ---------------------- Nothing I do can seem to get Clover to load to the hidden EFI partition on my SSD OSX install (disk0s1) Does anyone have an idea what I need to fix to get Clover to recognize, mount, open, and install to my EFI partition on my SSD (disk0s1)?
  20. Hi bros! Feel free to try on the new theme I created, it's the one I use since 6 months at least, if you like it. Tell me what could be better and stuff yeah ? Maybe suggest a crazy idea?

  22. Hey guys, I was wondering if it would be possible for me to use clover to be able to boot windows and have it see a full 4tb HDD on legacy hardware? I have used a UEFI enabled computer to install Windows on the 4TB hard drive, but obviously when I plug that drive into the non-uefi computer it won't load. I was wondering if I could use clover to make it work? I tried using a mac with a HDD caddy to install clover to it, but I think it says that clover couldn't be installed to that drive. Yet when I format that drive in apple's disk manager then I am able to install clover to the drive. I believe I need to somehow do a "protective mbr" or "hybrid mbr" as the motherboard is non-uefi so it won't read a GPT disk, so I need to probably have clover install into a MBR partition on the disk so it can then start the GPT partition that contains windows (I can have different partitioning schemes on one drive right?) So far: I have been able to successfully boot up the UEFI version of windows in the legacy boot hardware by using a USB drive with clover on it. The computer starts up, loads up clover and then I select to boot off the drive and it loads up no problem. Thing is I need to do is somehow have the 4tb drive contain clover. I've been working on this for a couple days, if anyone can point me the right way I would extremely appreciate it!!
  23. Hi Folks, I'm attempting to properly configure a UEFI dual boot system (Windows 10 and El Capitan). My desire was to have a one disk dedicated to Windows 10 and another for El Capitan. I currently have that setup. I did clean installs for each OS to their respective disk. As a result, I have the windows created EFI partition on disk 0 and OS X EFI partition on disk 1. I have the windows os loader installed into the EFI partition on disk 0 and Clover onto disk 1. I can boot either OS by selecting the appropriate partition from my boot menu in my UEFI boot menu. I'm left with two problems, however. I'm not able to boot the Windows 10 OS from Clover and I'm getting extra EFI entries into my UEFI firmware. I'm thinking the correct approach is to consolidate EFI partitions and install the windows loader and clover loader side by side. I would like disk0 (Windows Disk) to contain the "active' EFI Partition. My questions are as follows: Is there a setup which would allow me to have multiple EFI partitions and not have the extra EFI entry added to my UEFI firmware? If not, should I drop down to a single EFI partition? Can I install Clover to the Windows created EFI Partition and have each loader coexist happily? Partition setup: /dev/disk0 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *256.1 GB disk0 1: Windows Recovery 471.9 MB disk0s1 2: EFI NO NAME 104.9 MB disk0s2 3: Microsoft Reserved 16.8 MB disk0s3 4: Microsoft Basic Data 255.5 GB disk0s4 /dev/disk1 (external, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *120.0 GB disk1 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1 2: Apple_HFS OSX Installed 119.2 GB disk1s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk1s3 Thanks, Matt
  24. Hello. I need help with some strange issue. I used my home hackintosh for a long time without DVD drive. Disabled it at one moment to free sata connector. Now I need it and when I plug it in, clover won't start. Just underscore cursor stay on screen. What it can be?
  25. I have a MacPro 1'1 - This may not be the best place for this post but I couldn't find a netter one. I am attempting to build an iEl Capitam hacked installer with Tiamo's modified boot.efi. I have successfully built a Mavericks installer, and an El Capitan installer. I boot holding down the opt key and choose the USB key with the installer. Everything seems to work just fine like the installation menu is about to pop up but instead it jumps back and completes the boot every time from the hard drive.
