All graphics must be in png and icns format. Transparency supported. PNG may be created by system's Preview application. To create icns you have to use IconComposer.app provided with XCode. Icon Composer.app.zip You should copy/paste picture with transparency into 128 and 32 images. They may be different or may be the same. First pixel from logo will be the color for the whole desktop (see "dawn"). Choose a font from existing or create your new font. Choose a character spacing for the chosen font. Create your own Selection_big.png and selection.small.png Select a color for menu bar. It depends on your desktop color. selection_color 0xF376D380 This is standard WEB color coding RGBA. In this example Red=0xF3, Green=0x76, Blue=0xD3, Alfa=0x80 - this is semitranparent - recommended balue.

  2. Slice is glad to present a new EFI bootloader. CLOVER Now version 2 rEFIt based. It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision. I also want to thank all who help Slice with the development. Credits and copyrights remain in the sources. http://cloverefiboot.sourceforge.net/ Main features: If you have a question please provide outputs from DarwinDumper (formed from Trauma tool).

  3. Clover Third-Party Tools ...
  4. I ported and updated the secure boot tools from Linux. This means we have tools to make signature lists, sign the signature lists, sign EFI files, ... I updated also most tools (for example the signature list signer in order to be able to sign multi-signature databases) to work optimal and properly in OS X. Recently I updated the sources for libuuid (1.0.3) and openssl (1.0.1i) so that it builds against the latest versions. I built 32 and 64 bit versions. Also included is my bioskeydump tool to dump PK, KEK, DB and DBX files and also their signature if they are signed. Everything is compiled to run very fast (-O3). Source is included. Built results and Clovers signing certificate are included under Build. Enjoy @Slice: You might want to include these in Clover to sign the EFI files in the CloverPackage dir, I also included a recursive script and this can be slightly adapted to run sbsign from another directory. This cloversign.sh script can sign any file you feed to it directly (even multiple files). EDIT: New version V3 for Yosemite built with Apple optimisations. ZLIB 1.2.8 58 with apple extensions, libuuid-1.0.3 with Xcode build project, OpenSSL 1.0.1j 52 with apple extensions and GMP 6.0.0 are used as renewed libraries in the installer. The uuid library now has an Xcode project and is built with full optimisations on same as the ZLIB and OpenSSL parts. Package build script is included in the Makefile under src/pkg. One make installer command in this folder will generate and installer package automatically but you would have to edit the Makefile for changing the installer package signing identity. Installer package included with Apple dev cert signed binaries and package. All works optimal and fast, build flags are -g0 -arch x86_64 -Ofast which means no debugging, 64-bit intel and fastest possible code. Enjoy this enormously fast release. EDIT2: Added a github repo. https://github.com/andyvand/sbsigntool_osx sbsigntool-0.6-Clover_R2.zip sbsigntool-0.6-R3-installer.zip sbsigntool-0.6-Clover_R3.zip

  7. Hi there, This guide will enable your Intel addon NIC (EXPI9301CT) to fully support the Apple drivers and behave like a native Apple NIC. I wanted a solution for my trusted Intel NIC without having to use any third party kexts to get it working and also wanted it to be fully UEFI compatible. So I researched a little and would like to share my results in this short guide. Caution: This guide will only work for Intel Desktop CT NICs with PCI device ID 10D3. Also I only used OSX Yosemite to verify the results, but it should work in Mavericks, too. 1) Optional: Remove third party kext for the NIC Please remove any other third party kext you may have installed for your Intel NIC. We do not want any conflicts here later on. 2) Create a bootable DOS USB drive I used Rufus Boot USB Disk with an Image of Win98 DOS bootfiles to create it under Windows. The original ISO for the Win98 DOS Boot files can be found here http://goo.gl/WOaQi (Windows 98 DOS Boot). Any other DOS compatible Boot environment should work, too. 3) Download Intel Preboot files PREBOOT.EXE from http://goo.gl/ppSRzo 4) Copy the necessary files to the USB drive Extract the the download and copy the following files the bootable DOS USB drive Copy BOOTIMG.FLB from PREBOOT\APPS\BootUtil Copy BootUtil.EXE from PREBOOT\APPS\BootUtil\DOS 5) Restart and boot from the USB-Stick You will temporarily have to change the UEFI-BIOS settings to be able to boot from a DOS environment. I had to set the following options: Legacy USB = Enable SecureBoot = Other FastBoot = Off 6) Flash the NIC with EFI-ROM After Booting from the DOS USB drive please use the following commands in the given order. Backup the original ROM BootUtil -SAVEIMAGE -FILE=Backup.FLB Enable flash write capability on NIC BootUtil -FE -ALL Update NIC with EFI-ROM BootUtil -UP=EFI -ALL -FILE=BOOTIMG.FLB 7) Change PCI device ID with ethtool Congratulations, your Intel NIC is now UEFI compatible and should already show up in your UEFI BIOS. We now will have to change the device ID from the NIC, so that OSX can use the native driver. Boot from a Linux Live Boot environment (e.g. Ubuntu) and change the PCI device ID from 10D3 to 10F6 with ethtool. Please ensure your Intel NIC is eth0. We do not want to patch any other NICs by mistake. sudo -s apt-get install ethtool ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x10D38086 offset 0x16 value 0x00 ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x10D38086 offset 0x17 value 0x00 ethtool -E eth0 magic 0x10D38086 offset 0x1A value 0xF6 8) Start OSX and enjoy your native Apple Intel NIC Reboot and don't forget to change the UEFI-Settings back from step 4 to their original values. After this you can start OSX and the NIC should be recognized. Windows will pick up the NIC without any problems, so no worries if you want to switch back to Windows sometime later on. Disclaimer: Please note, this procedure solved a very specific problem for me and the guide is certainly not perfect. I do not take any responsibility for anything that may go wrong if you follow it. I hope this guide may be useful for someone and please feel free to give any suggestions that may improve it. Cheers, Maroder
  8. Hi there, I’ve only tried on MSI GE60 2OE Core-i5-4200M version but I think it will work on GE70 2OE too as well because it has very similar hardware, I think the only difference is screen and body size. I’m a hackintosh newbie, so there are a lots more thing that potentially can be fixed I think. I still have to learn more. Normally, OS X Installer won’t install to disk that already have Windows installation, or disk without GPT Reserved partition size 200 mb at the start (Apple Disk Utility erase function will create GPT Reserved size 200 mb at the start of the disk), but I have some trick, and it require a spare external hard disk. My Specs : Core i5-4200M Intel HD4600 Nvidia GTX 765M 15.6” 1920x1080 HDD 1 TB 5400 RPM RAM 8 GB DDR3 1600 Realtek HD Audio ALC892 Realtek RTL8723AE Wifi + Bluetooth Killer E2200 Ethernet Download Files : https://www.mediafire.com/folder/48cufaxuxo34z/GE60_2OE_OS_X What Works : Intel HD Graphic 4600 with Full OpenGL Acceleration (QE/CI) Battery level monitoring Intel Speedstep Indeed, OS X doesn’t support showing real current CPU frequency, even on real mac (you can read more here https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4104026?tstart=0 ), all cpu speed reporting program will report at highest turbo boost frequency all the time, but when I use program like HWMonitor, it shows than when the system is not heavily loaded, CPU power usage is around 6 W, and temperature is not high. When the system is loaded, CPU power usage spikes up to 18-25 Watt, temperature rises up to 80 celcius, laptop fan spin faster, which indicates that Intel Speedstep is indeed working. Sleep (some plugged in usb device can cause the system not to go to sleep successfully) Sound (only speaker and built in mic using VoodooHDA) Screen brightness adjustment Elan multitouch pad Elan keyboarad Ethernet All USB Ports What doesn’t work yet: HDMI Out (don’t know how to fix) DVI Out Headphones, line-in microphone (fixing them is too hard for me) Card Reader NVIDIA GTX 765MIt is powered when in OS X, draining battery and generate some heat, and I have no idea how to power it down. NVIDIA Optimus graphic switching technology can’t be worked on OS X because on real Macs, Apple uses its own graphic switching implementation instead of NVIDIA Optimus. Wifi and BluetoothWell, there aren’t any driver for them. Right now I’m using a cheap TP-Link TL-WN723N USB Wifi adapter. Wifi and Bluetooth are on the same Realtek chip. Requirement : Windows Installed with EFI boot partition with GPT disk scheme. (not require if you are installing OS X as first OS on the disk) A spare external hard disk (need to be erased for OS X installation, and not needed if no windows installed on internal hard disk) A spare USB flash drive with at least 8 GB capacity. (need to be erased for OS X installer) OS X Machine or VMWare to prepare installer (if OS X on VMware had OpenGL Acceleration, I would not have tried to dual boot. Damn you Apple for not publicize document on how to make graphic driver, doubt it is the reason why OS X gaming performance is much slower than Windows’) Steps 1 : Preparation of OS X Installer Get OS X 10.9.1 app store installer. (torrent is your friend) Mount the dmg image of OS X installer. Do this on OS X VMware or real Mac of course. In mounted image, right click on “Mavericks.app” and choose “Show Contents”. Go to "Contents/Shared Support" and mount InstallESD.dmg Mount BaseSystem.dmg by typing the following in terminal: open /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg In DiskUtility, go to the "OS X Base System", Restore it to your USB disk. Navigate to /System/Installation on your USB drive. Delete the “Packages” link, then copy the Packages folder from “OS X Install ESD” to this location. Copy the kexts in “GE602OE_Kexts.zip” I provided to /System/Library/Extensions on your USB stick, but for safety, remove original kexts that has same name first because those kexts are folder not file. Delete these kexts to prevent hanging on installer boot screen AppleBluetoothMultitouch.kext IOBluetoothFamily.kext IOBluetoothHIDDriver.kext Install Clover bootloader I provided to the USB Drive. • Install for UEFI booting only • Themes->Choose one • Drivers64UEFI->OsxAptioFixDrv-64 11. Install Clover Configurator to use it for mounting newly clover-created EFI partition on USB Drive easily. 12. Copy and replace all files in CLOVER_GE602OEconfigured.zip to the EFI partition. You may still need clover configurator to manually config boot loader to suit your need, or try to fix problem later, also it is configured to boot without kernel cache, booting with kernel cache fails boot process a lot in my laptop, so I disabled it permanently, it will take a bit longer to boot os x. Also DSDT and SSDT are included in the zip file. UPDATE1: if you are using a different CPU than mine, you must remove SSDT.aml in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched ,and put NullCPUPowerManagement.kext into System/Library/Extension, now your OS X shouldn't be able to sleep and doesn't have intel speedstep working. I will teach you to fix it later. 13. Copy mach_kernel to the root of USB Drive partition “OS X Base System”. This is modified kernel to fix early reboot problem on intel haswell or core i gen 4 . Now we are ready to boot into OS X Installer Step 2 : My BIOS Setting (might not necessary) Step 3 : Installing OS X to external hard drive 1.Setup UEFI firmware to boot to OS X USB Installer. 2.When CLOVER bootloader shows up, boot to “OS X Base System” 3.Plug in external hard drive , then open Disk Utility and erase the external hard drive with GUID partition scheme. 4.Create a new partition with Mac OS Journaled file system. 5.Install OS X to that partition 6.Reboot to Windows and install program like MacDrive, Paragon HFS for Windows to access OS X partition. 7.Copy and replace mach_kernel to the root of the OS X drive, also the Kexts I provided to /System/Library/Extensions/ ,but for safety, remove original kexts that has same name first because those kexts are folder not file. UPDATE 1: Also, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext if you are not using i5-4200M like me. Step 4 : Finalizing installation 1.Now Boot to OS X on external hdd 2.Reinstall kexts I provided using Kext Wizard, this fixes kexts improper installed mesaages. 3.Install VoodooHDA-2.8.4.Lion.pkg 4.Optionally, I recommend FakeSMC + Plugins + HWMonitor found in Slytherin, it allows you to view hardware temp, CPU power usage, and seeing that CPU frequency is locked at turboboost speed, but indeed it is not. 5.To fix screen brightness adjustment, Copy org.rehabman.blinkscreen.plist to /Library/LaunchAgents Copy blink screen to /usr/bin. Type "defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES" in terminal to show hidden files. UPDATE1 : 6.if you are using different cpu than mine, not i5-4200M, make SSDT yourself here http://rampagedev.wordpress.com/guides/make-your-own-ssdt/, and mount EFI partition on OSX USB Installer using clover configurator, and copy newly created SSDT to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched , finally delete NullCPUPowerManagement.kext in S/L/E (System/Library/Extensions) Step 5 : Moving OS X install to internal hard disk 1.Resize partition to have free space for your OS X partition, and format that free space to Unformatted. I recommend Minitool Partition Wizard. 2.Reopen explorer.exe with admin right, and run mountvol z: /s. This will mount EFI partition. 3.Open EFI drive and open EFI folder, copy CLOVER folder to EFI folder from CLOVER_GE602OEconfigured.zip, but DON’T REPLACE BOOT folder, or you will replace default EFI boot from Windows’ one to Clover. But if you did that, windows still boot, I have tried that, the UEFI firmware loads Windows boot loader from MICROSOFT folder instead of BOOT folder. 4.Boot to clover bootloader on usb flash drive, now you will see that there are two Clover Boot Option. Check them one by one and Add Clover as UEFI boot option for the internal hard disk (SATA not USB), see the picture Yay! You added clover boot loader entry to the UEFI firmware. 5.Now boot into OS X installer or OS X Base System, open Disk Utility and do a restore Source : Your installed OS X volume on external harddisk Destination : Your unformatted allocated space on internal hard disk All done, you will be able to boot OS X from internal hard disk now, I haven’t tried updating it to 10.9.2 and 10.9.3 yet, and I have read somewhere that there are some problems with NVIDIA Kexts for 10.9.2. If somebody manages to fix HDMI, DVI, Audio problems please tell me. Hmm, did some GPU benchmark. Windows won. I set nvidia optimus to use Intel GPU instead of mighty GTX 765M instead,
  9. Here are my Specs Processor: i7-4700MQ RAM:6GB HDD : 1TB Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600(QE/CI Enabled) AMD Radeon M265 Audio Card :Conexant CX20757 ​Method used to patch audio: AppleHDA Patcher's generated HDAEnabler And AppleHDA Kext Audio Works Excellent...

  10. 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)?
  11. Hi all, I just installed iAtkos ML3 (ML 10.8.3) onto my desktop and got it working fine once it's booted. The problem is booting. Using the USB stick I used to install iAtkos, I can use whatever bootloader came with the iAtkos USB stick to boot, and everything works fine (except sleep mode, but I doubt that's relevant). When I try and boot from the bootloader on the HDD I installed OSX on, however, I get this text when trying to boot... I've tried installing other boot loaders to no avail, exactly the same thing each time Any ideas for a fix? All replies are greatly appreciated! Cheers, Luke
  12. Hi I am running a multi Mac Osx Os on a GA-X58A-UD3R. 6 months ago, I changed Chameleon boot loader to Chimera, and all worked fine. Then, today, trying to fix an other HDD on this Hack, I killed something around EFI clover partition. I presume this, because I can boot from Clover USB and select any OS that I can launch and run successfully. Here is my disks list: hi$ diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *2.0 TB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Snow_Leopard 300.2 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_HFS Yosemite 299.8 GB disk0s3 4: Apple_HFS El capitan 299.5 GB disk0s4 5: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s5 6: Apple_HFS Mav10.9.5 300.0 GB disk0s6 7: Apple_HFS Tresor 300.0 GB disk0s7 8: Apple_HFS Spare 499.4 GB disk0s8 9: Microsoft Basic Data AVIRER 133.2 MB disk0s9 /dev/disk1 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *2.0 TB disk1 1: Windows_NTFS W7 224.5 GB disk1s1 2: Windows_FAT_32 CLOVERLW7 210.8 MB disk1s2 3: Windows_NTFS W8 104.9 GB disk1s3 4: Windows_NTFS HP_Margot 104.9 GB disk1s5 5: Windows_NTFS Acronis Bkup 104.9 GB disk1s6 6: Apple_HFS BackupMacOs 702.5 GB disk1s7 7: Apple_HFS BK_Time_machine 654.7 GB disk1s8 /dev/disk2 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: FDisk_partition_scheme *15.5 GB disk2 1: Windows_FAT_32 USBCLOVER 14.7 GB disk2s1 2: DOS_FAT_32 TO PRINT 833.6 MB disk2s2 Now I tried to reformat EFI partition, newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/disk0s1 Then reload it from a CCC archive and reboot I also tried to reinstall Clover using Clover_v2.3k_r3489.pkg I still have this message at boot (from HDD) Non System disk Press any key to reboot Please help Leon
  13. Every time I try to install clover on my hard drive or change files in the EFI partition, bios hangs after restart- the screen stays on but is all black. Here is the scenario: I am currently running Yosemite beta 6 with clover, no problems. I wanted to install the final Yosemite release on a second hard drive to backup stuff before I migrate my main drive over. I have done this many times before without issue. Now out of the blue, when I install Yosemite on the new drive followed by installing clover, my computer will hang at bios. Here is what I know- The hdd's are good and work fine. I have tried 3 different known working drives with different sata cables and different sata ports on the mobo, and the problem exists across all of them. The drives work fine and have no problem up until I try to install or change files on the EFI partition. I have installed OS X and clover on 2 of these drives in the past with no problems. After installing clover or copying files to the EFI partition, and restart the computer, bios hangs right as it should be looking for sata drives to boot from. I never get to a list of drives and I can't even go into bios settings as my pc just hangs right after the bios logo appears. The only way to get out of this is to physically unplug my hdd from the sata port. Then the computer will boot up like normal, no problems. If I then power down and plug the drive back in, bios hangs again. I found that hooking the drive up to usb after boot allows me to access it. When I plug the drive in with usb, both Windows and OS X see the drive as corrupted and needing to be formatted. If I format the drive, all appears fine and the drive works no problem, up until I mess with the EFI partition at which point bios hangs. Like I said, i currently have a working Yosemite b6 drive that works fine, but I am scared that if I do any changes to the bootloader, it will get screwed up too. Right now I am kind of in limbo and am clueless as to whats going on. My computer has never had issues like this, so I am hoping it isn't a motherboard issue because I don't want to buy new parts at this point. Help would be much appreciated! My specs- gigabyte z77x-up5-th, i7 3770k, 16 gb ram, gtx 670.
  14. My purpose is using clover + GPT to install Yosemite and make dual boot with windows 7. I have successfully boot windows 7 x64 ultimate on my notebook Acer 4741G with LegacyBIOS+GPT+Clover, but keyboard and touchpad are not working. In Device manager , it's show code 24 which mean device is not present. On GUI of clover , keyboard working, touchpad not working. At last , I convert my harddrive from GPT to MBR , boot with native windows 7 bootmgr , my notebook keyboard and touchpad working perfectly. PS: Notebook : Acer 4741G (not support UEFI) Keyboard: built in PS/2 keyboard. TouchPad: built in PS/2 touchpad. HardDrive: Crucial M500 240GB SSD (4 Paritions: FAT32 EFI partion, NTFS partition, HFS+ partition, NTFS partition) Clover : intsalled to FAT32 EFI partition. tried version r2953 and r3065 , same issue. OS: windows 7 x64 ultimate. Any tips? Thanks in advance.

    UseAtiRom Chameleon EFI help!

    I recently installed Chameleon onto my HD's EFI partition and it works great except for I can not get UseAtiRom=y to work; no matter what I try it keeps loading from the legacy space. 1002_679a.rom (both extracted by myself as well as I tried d/l from TechPowerUp) resides in the Extras folder on the EFI partition. Using UseAtiRom=y with GraphicsEnabler=y halts the boot as usual, AtiConfig=Aji/Futomaki does nothing. What am I missing?

    Asus CM6850

    Okay so I have an ASUS CM6850 so far OX ML is running amazing on it...except for the usual like sleep and i need a DSDT for my PC the board is a P8H67-M PRO and theres a DSDT for that board which thats what my board is but Asus branded the board model ID in the EFI bios with CM6850 so my question is there any way to force flash an EFI Bios or somehow decompile a .ROM and change the Model ID because EZ Flash or BUpdater both say Model ID Different from current rom?? If anyone could change the model ID for me let me know :/
  18. Hi, I have a Hackintosh with a Z77-DS3H Gigabyte motherboard. I updated from Maverick to Yosemite with no big issue with Chimera/Chameleon. I wanted to solve the iMessage issue, so I decided to switch to Clover (UEFI). I did install Clover on the same disk as OS X. Each time, the EFI partition was created with no issue. But here is what happens everytime: - I install Clover, mount the EFI partition to change the config file. - Reboot... Everything working perfectly. ... until.... - Try to mount the EFI again to make some changes in the config BUT this time the partition won't mount. EFI shows in the terminal when I list the drives (disk1s1), though. I tried with command lines, EFI Mounter and Disk Utility. - When I try to mount it with the clover configurator, I get a "EFI" folder in /Volumes instead of a drive. And that folder is empty. - Each time after booting, OS X won't start, which I think is normal since EFI disappeared. I then have to setup my Hackintosh all over again. I tried 3 times. Even with creating the FAT32 EFI partition myself, I get the same problem each time. Does someone know the reason and how to fix it? Do I need to install Clover on a bootable USB instead of the system drive? I couldn't find if this was the issue (and didn't have a USB key available). Also, is this a known issue? Thanks in advance... Any piece of advice would help me a lot!
  19. Hey guys! This is my first post after having registered a while back. I usually tend to do my research, browse through forums to find answers to my questions and figure things out on my own, but I'm stumped and need some help here. I have a 2006 Mac Mini that I upgraded to a 2 GHz Core 2 Duo (T7200, I believe.) and I also upgraded the firmware from the 1,1 (MM11.0055.08B) to the 2,1 boot ROM (MM21.009A.B00). I have reset PRAM and SMC, but I still have kernel panic for different reasons. Sorry, that I don't have the reports available to post some examples right now, but I've had several issues since upgrading the EFI such as fan issues, freezing up, not being able to install an app or update (Installer failures) and sudden need to press and hold the power button to shut down just to name a few. If someone can guide me as to rolling back the firmware that would be awesome. I have included the stock firmware and the 1,1 to 2,1 files (with Terminal script used to install it.) in case any of that is needed. I pulled the stock boot ROM with unpkg. As far as which OS X version I'm using, these errors/failures have occurred under Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion through MLPostFactor 0.3. I have even had difficulty performing a clean install using the 10.6.3 retail disk because it would fail. Installing Lion failed a few times as has the MLPostFactor install. At this point, I'd like to rollback and then try reinstalling the 2,1 firmware. Maybe that can help? I tried reinstalling the 2,1 files and didn't work (I couldn't get it to work.). I'm guessing it's because of the boot ROM version incompatibility, my ignorance, or both.. I've tried downgrading by using the Firmware Restore CD 1.7 by booting with it and MacminiFirmwareUpdate.dmg stated that it is incompatible (boot ROM incompatibility being that it is lower than what is installed), so naturally, neither option i attempted worked. Maybe I need some terminal script and/or stock boot ROM mod to downgrade much in the same vein that I upgraded to 2,1 in the first place? Or maybe some script to help me out in forcing the installer to restore or something? Any methods you come up with are fine with me as I'm able to follow instructions to the letter. I'm not savvy with Terminal, so I apologize for not knowing my way around! I should pick up a book or two soon and learn it. Any help would be appreciated and if I confused anyone, ask and I'll clarify as best I can. Thank you in advance! Mac Mini 1,1 Stock MM11_0055_08B.zip Mac Mini 1,1 to 2,1.zip
  20. 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
  21. I updated Clover 2937. I added support for BlockIo2 and DiskIo2 in rEFIt_UEFI. I also added my (even more updated) efifs filesystem drivers to the build. They now are fully fixed (added suggested fixes for FreePool and updated the sources to not use some GNU functions but instead directly define them as their UEFI equivalents). The FS drivers are now about 50% in size of what they where and they really are a lot faster and more stable. I also include AppleHFSPlus-32.efi and AppleHFSPlus-64.efi in the installer (Apple's HFSPlus EFI driver). The Clover tools (bdmesg, etc...) are all built with signed binaries for i386 and x86_64, I used my apple developer certificate. I also signed the .efi binaries using the certificates included in Clover. I made some databases from those keys, they are included in the zip and installed to /etc/securebootdb along with the RC scripts. The binaries included are PK, KEK and DB. You can install these on some UEFI firmwares from within the UEFI BIOS menu (on AMI Aptio for example, as I tend to use those myself...). I built this version of Clover with my own custom blend of gcc-4.9.1 and also updated the ebuild.sh script to accept -gcc49. All nicely wrapped in the installer package, also built the 32-bit and 64-bit bootable .iso files. Source diff is included... EDIT: New updated version (and built for the latest official too). I figured out that in order for the mtoc tool to properly convert the binaries from Mach-O to PE(+) one must first strip the Mach-O file prior to running the mtoc command. I updated the build_rule.txt flile (to use the strip tool on the binaries before conversion) and also updated the tools_def.txt file (to define the strip tool so it can be used by the build process). This results in full building possibility using Xcode's Clang only. I had to update the sources in order to fully build all of the Clover parts using Clang. I updated also and optimized more my UEFI FS driver package. All 56 drivers can now be built using GCC or Clang and are also included in the installer package (including the GRUB FAT driver, built now directly as MINIFAT.efi). More updates to the ebuild.sh script where also done as I found a bug in which case it didn't properly set Clover's version and thus create a Version.h without a proper version added inside. In order to build Clover and it's package or ISO's, I have made a separate script as ebuild.sh made somehow a mess of the build. It directly builds all major versions of Clover (32 and 64 bit, regular and BIOS Block IO versions). I also did some updates to the BootSector files. efi64.com2 can now also be built as efi64.com64 (updated Makefile using GCC toolchain with build flags for 32 and 64 bit build). In case of building efi64.com64 it uses the x86_64 target and this meant I had to modify the efi64.S sources to make it compatible. I also optimized and fixed fully gptsync. The new version also builds using only the essential GUID definitions and libraries linked in. It works a lot better and I took also my time updating the source code. I fixed and optimized every .c file. gptsync.inf GUID's and libraries: [LibraryClasses] UefiApplicationEntryPoint UefiLib MemoryAllocationLib BaseMemoryLib BaseLib DevicePathLib [Protocols] gEfiBlockIoProtocolGuid gEfiBlockIo2ProtocolGuid This is all the dependencies that are required to properly build gptsync. I did similar updates to the UEFI FS package, I optimized everything and also removed some unnecessary files from some drivers. They work now perfectly. Source diff is included, as is my build script for building Clover and it's generated ISO's / package files. Both GCC 4.9.1 and Xcode 5.1 Clang versions are uploaded Enjoy Clover2341_Updates_Patch.diff.zip build_clover_xcode5_clang.sh.zip Clover-2941-Xcode-5.1-Clang-Bin.zip Clover-2941-GCC-4.9.1-Bin.zip
  22. I've decided to port the efifs drivers to EDK2 fully (instead of good old GNU EFI) because I wanted a lot more filesystems supported under UEFI. I've now ported them all (all drivers from GRUB). This means there is a total of 36 FS drivers (newly) available. I've upgraded the routines so they support also BlockIo2 and DIskIo2 protocol from UEFI 2.3.1 if they are available. I also extended the SimpleFIleSystem interface to support the extended (OpenEx, ReadEx, WriteEx, FlushEx) functions. Enjoy You'll like these, they are really good drivers... Sources are included also and can be integrated into for example Clover 35 are prebuilt of these, just not the FAT driver..

  23. I wrote a little EFI tool to read SMC keys from real Macs from an EFI shell running on the real Macs. I made 32bit and 64bit versions. It also reads the SMC Signature out and shows it. Usage example: ReadSMC.efi OSK 31 It show: OSK0: [ 6f 75 72 68 61 72 64 77 6f 72 6b 62 79 74 68 65 73 65 77 6f 72 64 73 67 75 61 72 64 65 64 70 6c ] Have fun EDIT: Upload restored, github repo created.

  24. Ho creato questa piccola Guida con la speranza che qualcuno intervenga e la migliori. Mi è capitate di voler installare Clover su un Disco da 4k , ma non sono riuscito mai a rendere quella partizione bootabile. Installazione Clover su Samsnung 1) Formattare disco con partizione Guid 2) Installare Osx 3) Avviare Mountain Lion , aprire terminale come amministratore e digitare : sudo su diskutil list individuare la partizione EFI diskutil eraseVolume "fat32" "EFI" /dev/disk0s1 mkdir /Volumes/EFI sudo mount_msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI/ se tutto fatto correttamente ci troveranno davanti la partizione eri creata 3) Installare Windows 7 o 8 in modalità EFI 4) A fine installazione windows avrà creato una partizione fat32 bootabile 5) Riavviare ad Avviare il Sistema Operativo Mountain Lion 6) Rinomanire la vecchia partizione EFI in EFI WIN 7) Aprire terminale come amministratore e digitare : sudo su diskutil list individuare la partizione EFI mkdir /Volumes/EFI sudo mount_msdos /dev/disk0s3 /Volumes/EFI/ copiare al cartella EFI nel partizione EFI Win copiare la cartella EFI nella perdizione EFI creata da Win 7 8) Fine
  25. 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.+ ?
