  1. Create Custom Entries to Hide Preboot and Recovery APFS Volumes with Clover Configurator With the release of High Sierra and the APFS file system, Clover users now have "extra" entries appearing in their Main Menu - Preboot and Recovery APFS volumes. While they are harmless and actually useful in certain circumstances (eg need Preboot to boot if using File Vault encryption, need Recovery to fix some file system problems), most users will likely want to hide them in day to day use. Note: This guide is tailored to those users who want to understand how to create custom APFS entries and the "nuts and bolts" of how Clover parses the file system looking for efi loader entries. If all you want to do is hide entries, the easiest way is through the GUI/Hide section of the config.plist. This won't allow you to rename custom entries, nor unhide them with the <F3> key (at least not till Clover r4247). Pre-requisites macOS High Sierra installed on APFS SSD or HDD Clover r4097+ with apfs.efi installed in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI or /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64 Clover Configurator v or later Procedure 1. Record output of "diskutil list" and "diskutil apfs list" to determine the layout of the actual physical disk(s) and the synthesized APFS container. In my example, the High Sierra Volume is named macOS_HS and is installed in physical disk partition disk3s4. fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ diskutil list /dev/disk3 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk3 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk3s1 2: Microsoft Basic Data DATA 935.6 GB disk3s2 3: Microsoft Reserved 134.2 MB disk3s3 4: Apple_APFS Container disk4 63.6 GB disk3s4 5: Apple_KernelCoreDump 655.4 MB disk3s5 /dev/disk4 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +63.6 GB disk4 Physical Store disk3s4 1: APFS Volume macOS_HS 34.3 GB disk4s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 20.9 MB disk4s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 519.6 MB disk4s3 4: APFS Volume VM 20.5 KB disk4s4 2. Generate Clover Boot Log with terminal bdmesg > ~/Documents/bootlog.txt Note: for easier analysis of boot log, please remove all Custom/Hidden Entries from config.plist/GUI first (leaving only Clover auto scanning) before generating it. 3. Open bootlog.txt with a text editor and under the [ ScanLoader ] section, note the volume numbers corresponding to the Preboot, High Sierra and Recovery APFS volumes... Preboot Volume ---> 24 High Sierra Volume ---> 25 Recovery Volume ---> 26 4. Under [ ScanVolumes ] section, record the UUIDs of the above 3 Volumes In this example Vol 24 = Preboot: E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41,0x6CF46800,0x7687D88)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,050BA2A72D1D0E4D8ABDE9B99632868E Partition UUID = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 Vol UUID = 050BA2A72D1D0E4D8ABDE9B99632868E (little endian format) Vol 25 = macOS_HS: E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41,0x6CF46800,0x7687D88)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,67B6FC62811C594E819DACAE2F90240D Partition UUID = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 Vol UUID = 67B6FC62-811C-594E-819D-ACAE2F90240D (little endian format), 62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D (big endian format) Vol 26 = Recovery: E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41,0x6CF46800,0x7687D88)\VenMedia(BE74FCF7-0B7C-49F3-9147-01F4042E6842,F3D73FFF25C8334DAF3C183BC35433DF Partition UUID = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 Vol UUID = F3D73FFF25C8334DAF3C183BC35433DF (little endian format) Note the partition UUIDs for all the APFS volumes are the same because they are all formed from the same physical disk partition disk3s4 = E38C70C3-C1C1-4096-B2DE-2EE2660FCE41 5. Mount the APFS Volumes to determine the "path" to boot.efi for the Preboot and Recovery Volumes. In terminal: fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ diskutil mount disk4s2 Volume Preboot on disk4s2 mounted fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ diskutil mount disk4s3 Volume Recovery on disk4s3 mounted fusion71aus-iMac:~ fusion71au$ open /Volumes In Finder, the hidden folder /Volumes will open (or use "ShowAllFiles.app" attached)... Record the "path to boot.efi" by expanding the directory tree of Preboot and Recovery (hint: drag the icon of boot.efi to a terminal window for full path): So for Preboot Volume, path = /Volumes/Preboot/62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi --> record as \62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D\System\Library\CoreServices\boot.efi and for Recovery Volume, path = /Volumes/Recovery/62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D/boot.efi ---> record as \62FCB667-1C81-4E59-819D-ACAE2F90240D\boot.efi Notes Need backslashes in the path, including the leading \ The UUID in the paths to boot.efi, for both the Preboot and Recovery APFS volumes, is the same = Vol UUID of the High Sierra Volume in big endian format... 6. Open Clover Configurator, mount EFI System Partition to edit /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist 7. Click GUI section on LHS and the + sign under Custom Entries to create New Custom Entry 8. Create Preboot High Sierra Custom Entry In Volume, copy and paste Vol UUID of Preboot Volume from step 4 In Path, copy and paste path to boot.efi from step 5, including the leading \ Click Title/FullTitle and enter the display name you want eg "Preboot High Sierra" Set Injectkexts and Hidden attributes to Yes Set Entry type to OSX Leave VolumeType blank 9. Create APFS Recovery Custom Entry In Volume, copy and paste Vol UUID of Recovery APFS Volume from step 4 In Path, copy and paste path to boot.efi from step 5, including the leading \ Click Title/FullTitle and enter the display name you want eg "APFS Recovery" Set Injectkexts and Hidden attributes to Yes Set Entry type to OSXRecovery Leave VolumeType blank 10. Save config.plist and reboot the system. At the main Clover Menu, you should see something like this ... To unhide the custom APFS entries, press the F3 key Update: New "macOS Install Prebooter" Entry with Clover r4225+ Clover r4225+ has added new code to detect OS X installer data on the Preboot Volume ---> causes an extra entry at the Clover Main Menu: "Boot macOS Install Prebooter from Preboot"... If you mount your Preboot volume, you will see ... Method for hiding the new entry would be similar to hiding the Preboot Entry discussed above: In Volume, copy and paste Vol UUID of Preboot Volume from step 4 In Path, copy and paste path to boot.efi from step 5, including the leading \ (eg \UUID\com.apple.installer\boot.efi ) Click Title/FullTitle and enter the display name you want eg "High Sierra Install Prebooter" Set Injectkexts and Hidden attributes to Yes Set Entry type to OSXInstaller Leave VolumeType blank Custom Entry for Fusion Drive Installation of Sierra or High Sierra - post#22. sample_config.plist.zip apfs.efi.zip ShowAllFiles.app.zip Clover_v2.4k_r4220.zip
  2. Hello Everyone, I tried to install macOS Sierra on HP Pavilion 17 Notebook: Intel Core i5 CPU 4210U Intel HD4400 Nvidia 840M Ram 12GB DDR3 SSD 480GB I was already running El Capitan and Windows 10 dual boot using clover bootloader. I am directly downloaded macOS Sierra and open it for installation. I updated the latest clover and add FakeSMC.kext, after installation start process computer automatically rebooted, On clover boot screen i choose Boot macOS Install from Macintosh SSD. Its start installation, when process remains almost 5 minutes its suddenly rebooted and appears with a boot problem as screen shots added in attachment. Even i have Bootable clover El Capitan USB but when i select boot with UEFI USB Drive it is also not booting and showing the same error. Please i need your helps to sort it out. Thank You
  3. Hi guys I've recently bought a 755 for dead cheap and looking forward to give him a newlife, so I need our community guys help as I'm not familiar with hackintoshing old dualcore systems. Below are the specs for the system. Intel Pentium Dual-Core E2160 1.8GHz CPU Intel Q32 Express chipset 3 GB DDR2 RAM (8 GB maximum) 80 GB SATA hard drive DVD±RW drive Floppy drive Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3100 with up to 256 MB shared memory Nvidia 8400GS Does anyone had any success installing and running mavericks or yosemite? If so could you please let me know which installation method works as I always prefer for vanilla install. As I've done some research in which few of them had problem with kexts while installing and in which they replaced them from older OSX versions. So to be honest I don't have much time to play with installation and for that reasons I'm looking for someone who had already played with it and had success, so that I can learn from there. Many ¬Thanks
  4. Hi guys...been breaking my head over this. I am not totally a noob at this but from the days of El capitan I am having serious headaches. I am running Yosemite on Dell latitude E6220 with intel HD Graphics 3000 and i5-2520M. Almost everything works except the onboard wifi card. Recently I have been trying to install Sierra on this PC since there are lots of tutorials for this same PC. However my case is not a success story. I am getting an error 2 minutes into the installation that Mac OS X sierra can not be installed on my PC. Yet the specs are okay. In some post someone was advised to change the SMBios to one that Sierra supports, so I uses Macbook Pro 8.1 which should be fine but I get the same error. Please know that after finding issues booting with clover I decided to use Enoch the latest release and it boots up smoothly to the installation screen but that error is killing me. I have changed hard drives still the same thing.Someone suggested that you have to enlarge the EFI partition but my system is using chameleon so I do not think I have an EFI partition. I am not a lazy person , I have read a lot but looks like I have hit a dead end.Anyone with anything I could try is more than welcome. Cheers

  8. Dear all, I searched various information sources to find an answer to my question but unfortunately couldn't find one, which satisfied me. I have a Samsung Netbook, which is working with a AMD E-450 Cpu and the corresponding Radeon HD 6320 graphics. My question is, if someone has figured out if it is possible to install Mountain Lion or Lion on such a machine. I know that it is possible to install Snow Leopard, but I want to use the new XCode with this machine and it requires 10.7.3. Thank you for your attention and answers in advance and have a nice day. Best regards Merci
  9. Hey guyz, so i was trying to install OSX ML on my PC.... and it turns out that i am stuck on DSMOS has arrived.... hmmm... I am booting in 32-bit mode using arch=i386 as 64-bit would get me a "Still waiting for Root device" error.. Any suggestions ????

I'm trying to build a "hack" so that I can document the install and use of various Mac FTP software to send files to a Windows 2008R2 server. Then I'll likely have no further use for it - thus my desire to have a "Mac For a Day". This hardware worked perfectly with Windows 7 Professional - both 32 and 64 bit. I then used GPARTED and deleted the partitions and then set the entire drive to HPF+. Then I'm booting with the Darwin/X86 created from the 490.zip that I previously downloaded and extracted. It shows as Darwin/X86 boot v5.0.132 - Chameleon v2.0-RC3; PCEFI-10.5 BootCDMaker Build date: 2009-10-21 22:45:35 2045 Memory. I can erase the disk and it shows as GUID Partition Table. Using a Snow Leopard 10.6.3 it starts installing and it runs for many minutes until it shows 29 minutes remaining. The completion bar is at the right side of the left X. The DVD drive has a access, there is some disk activity and then it just blows out to a reboot. Then obviously it just hangs. So - any idea where it's at this stage of the install? And more importantly what's my best course of action given that I don't have access to a Mac? I do have lots of other hard drives of various sizes and a few other video cards.

  15. Hello everyone, I'm having a strange problem with my OS X Yosemite installation. I'm using the Niresh Yosemite distro, and I'll put my specs in the bottom of the post. So my problem is, I installed OS X using the same distro about 2 times succesfully, but I messed up things post-installation which required me to re-install it. But after doing this a few times, the installation stopped working. I can still boot into the installation, but it halts at 14 minutes remaining. I've tried creating a new usb stick, but it doesn't change anything. The errors in the log are: "X /Volumes/OS X: missing CoreServices" "Container dmg is missing universal diagnostics" "Cannot connect to /var/run/systemkeychaincheck.socket: No such file or directory If anyone recognizes this problem or knows the solution, I'd be very grateful Specs: AMD A8 (Not supported but works anyway, same architecture as AMD Athlon I suppose?)

    DSMOS has arrived help

    I've spent the last week trying to get past this stage on my machine spending a lot of time on google and searching various forums. From what I have gathered this is most likely a graphics card issue; I'm following a tutorial on another site (not sure if I'm allowed to mention the site) and trying to install via clover. I've tried adding the correct FakeID for my card into the conf file; but still no luck. I've also tried booting with the -x flag to no avail. Lenovo TS140 CPU Intel Xeon E3-1225v3 Graphics AMD R9 270 RAM 32GB ECC I'm not sure what make the motherboard is I couldn't see it mentioned on the Lenovo site. It's my first post here so please bear with me; this is my first attempt at a hackintosh. I would greatly appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. I've attached my config file (I had to change the extension to upload) config.txt

  20. This guide is intended to share my experience with the successful Yosemite installation on ASRock H97 Pro4 using Clover UEFI boot. Guide contents: 1. Hardware specifications 2. Preparing Clover USB thumb with Yosemite 3. Installing Yosemite 4. Post installation 5. Files & links 6. Credits 7. Update to 10.10.1 8. Update to 10.10.2 1. Hardware specifications: Motherboard: ASRock H97 Pro4 AMI UEFI BIOS v.1.60 CPU: Intel i5-4460 @ 3,2GHz SSD: Samsung EVO 840 250GB Video: Gigabyte nVidia GTX 750 2GB DDR5 RAM Audio: Realtek ALC892 Ethernet: Intel I218-V RAM: 2 x 8GB Kingston HyperX @ 1600MHz ASRock H97 Pro4 is a wonderful choice for building a working Yosemite Hackintosh. The board doesn't have locked MSR registers in the BIOS and thus the BIOS image doesn't need a PM Patching. Thanks to the correct CPU settings in the BIOS (Advanced / CPU Configuration) and some Clover fixes these work flawlessly: 1. Native CPU Power Management (XCPM mode) 2. Restart 3. Shutdown 4. Sleep 5. Wake from Sleep (either via keyboard of mouse) 6. USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports 2. Preparing Clover USB thumb with Yosemite If you don't have access to a real Mac or Hackintosh you can do the preparation procedure on Windows with the help of BootDiskUtility 2.1. Preparing the USB thumb drive with Yosemite and Clover on a real Mac or Hackintosh: You'll need a 8GB USB thumb drive, the "Install OS X Yosemite.app" (make sure it resides in the /Applications folder). Using Disk Utility format the thumb drive with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install" (without the quotes, the name Install is used by the below terminal command). Then open Terminal and paste the following command: sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app --nointeraction You'll be asked to enter your password, type it and hit enter. The copying process will take up to max 10—15 minutes. Install Clover r2960 (download link at the end of this post) to the USB thumb drive with checked Install for UEFI booting only option: After the successful installation of Clover the EFI folder will be mounted and opened by default. Copy FakeSMC.kext (mandatory for booting OS X) to /EFI/Clover/kext/10.10 (manually create the 10.10 folder): Overwrite the original config.plist file located here /EFI/Clover/config.plist with this config.plist. I'm posting my initial config.plist for saving you a time testing Clover settings and avoiding KPs (kernel panics) during the initial boot with Clover. Copy HFSPlus.efi to /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI/ and delete VBoxHFS.efi from the same folder (example below): Don't remove the USB thumb, it will be used to boot Clover and to install Yosemite. 2.2. UEFI BIOS setup Restart the system and hit F2 to enter the UEFI BIOS setup. Make sure the below settings are setup as following: Advanced / Chipset Configuration: Primary Graphics Adapter = PCI Express VT-d = Disabled IGPU = Disabled Advanced / CPU Configuration [CPU PM (native XCPM mode) & flawless Sleep and Wake]: CPU C States Support = Enabled Enhanced Halt Support (C1E) = Enabled CPU C3 State Support = Disabled CPU C6 State Support = Auto CPU C7 State Support = Auto Package C State Support = C6 Advanced / Storage Configuration: SATA Controller(s) = Enabled SATA Mode Selection = AHCI Advanced: Intel Rapid Start Technology = Disabled Intel Smart Connect Technology = Disabled Advanced / ACPI Configuration: Suspend to RAM = Auto Check Ready Bit = Enabled ACPI HPET Table = Enabled RTC Alarm Power On = By OS (this setting doesn't cause system waking on every 2 hours!) USB Keyboard / Remote Power On = Enabled USB Mouse Power On = Enabled Advanced / USB Configuration: USB Controller = Enabled Intel USB3.0 Mode = Smart Auto Legacy USB Support = Enabled Legacy USB3.0 Support = Enabled USB Compatibility Patch = Disabled Boot: CSM (Compatibility Support Module) = Disabled Security: Secure Boot = Disabled Save these settings and exit the UEFI BIOS setup. 3. Installing Yosemite Skip this step ONLY if you already have your DSDT extracted: This is very useful Clover feature! Wait 10—15 seconds for Clover to complete the process. Your original DSDT.aml extracted by Clover will be located in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/original/DSDT.aml. 3.1. Booting from the Clover USB thumb with the Yosemite installation Make sure the USB thumb is attached to USB 2.0 port before booting the Yosemite installation! 3.1.1. Boot USB thumb to Clover and select "Install OS X Yosemite", hit enter, the installation will begin. Initial installation will prepare the drive of your choice for approx. 5—8 min and then the system will be restarted. 3.1.2. Again boot the USB to Clover and select "Install OS X Yosemite". This time the final installation will take up to 10—15 mins and again will restart the system. 3.1.3. Boot for third time with the Clover USB thumb and boot to your freshly installed Yosemite SSD or HDD. 4. Post installation Install Clover to your Yosemite boot drive (select Install for UEFI booting only), use the same settings as in section 2.1. Again, after successful Clover installation the Yosemite EFI folder will be mounted and opened by default. Copy FakeSMC.kext (mandatory for booting OS X) to /EFI/Clover/kext/10.10 (manually create the 10.10 folder). Copy CLOVERX64.efi to the root of the EFI folder and rename it to SHELLX64.efi, and make sure now the Clover EFI folder looks like this: 4.1. Adding Clover to BIOS UEFI boot menu: The goal of this procedure is to add Clover as a boot item in the BIOS UEFI Boot menu and to get rid of the Clover USB thumb as a boot option. 4.1.1. Restart the system and boot again with the Clover USB thumb drive. You'll see a screen similar to the below (depends on the chosen theme during Clover installation): 4.1.2. Go to Start UEFI Shell 64 (the highlighted icon) and hit enter. Shortly after you'll get the below screen: Find bootx64.efi on HDD EFI partition with the combination of the following commands: Shell> map fs* ➝ Show all partitions Shell> fs0: (or fs1: or fs2: ...)➝ Switch to fs0, fs1, fs2,... partitions Shell> ls ➝ List the contents of current partition / directory Shell> cd \efi\boot ➝ Change the directory to \efi\boot Shell> ls Then: Shell> help bcfg -b -v ➝ Get help on bcfg command Shell> bcfg boot dump ➝ List current boot options Shell> bcfg boot add N bootx64.efi "Clover" ➝ Add bootx64.efi from the current dir (\efi\boot) as a boot option labeled "Clover" (You will see this name also in the UEFI BIOS Boot menu boot items). N is the boot option number: 0 if you want it to be the first, 1 to be the second, etc. Shell> bcfg boot dump ➝ Check if Clover is added Shell> reset ➝ Restart the system and load Clover from SSD / HDD 4.2. Installing the nVidia GTX 750 / 750 Ti web drivers (Optional, only if you have GTX 750 / 750 Ti): 4.2.1. Get the nVidia web driver pkg from here. 4.2.2. Download Pacifist. 4.2.3. Install the new nVidia driver by opening it up in Pacifist, right clicking on the 1.3-63-343.01.01f01-NVWebDrivers.pkg and install it to the Yosemite drive (no need to manually extract and install kexts): 4.2.4. Open Clover config.plist and add the following arguments to the Boot section: kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1 4.2.5. Install the nVidia web driver again — clicking on the pkg file (without using Pacifist). 4.2.6. Restart the system. 4.3. Installing the Intel I218-V kext: Get AppleIntelE1000e.kext from this post and use Kext Utility to install it to /System/Library/Extensions (/S/L/E). 4.4. Installing the Realtek ALC892 kext: Wonderful and easy methods to get Realtek ALC working. Personally, I used method "3. cloverALC/Clover patched" from their guide and am having onboard sound working. Here's mine realtecALC.kext created with this method (kext goes to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.10/). 5.

Update to 10.10.1 The update went flawlessly since I don't have patched kexts in /S/L/E. Installed the new nVidia web drivers for 10.10.1. 8. Update to 10.10.2 Updated to 10.10.2, restated, and surprise — the system stuck at [AGPM controller: unknown platform]. Restarted again and booted with kernel flag nv_disable=1 (it was nvda_drv=1 before). System booted normally, but with graphic issues. Installed the new nVidia web drivers for 10.10.2. Then reverted back to nvda_drv=1 kernel flag, rebuilt the kernel cache, restarted and the graphic issues went. Applied again the method described here. Tip: To avoid the above situation, first update to the latest 10.10.2 nVidia web drivers and after then update to 10.10.2.

    Installation hang at 16%

    Hello together, i've got the following problem: I want to install OSX Mountain Lion to an HP nx6125 Notebook. It has an AMD Turion x64 CPU and 1GB of Ram. I am using the AMD Kernel for ML, and my CPU gets detected correctly. 1. My IDE HardDrive isn't detected, this is not that worse, cause I want to install it to an USB 3.0 Stick. 2. The installation freezes at 16%. My Bootflags are: :amd_kernel -v GraphicsEnabler=No Does anybody know, howto fix these Problems? Regards Sa_2307 P.S. I'm using an USB Stick, using the UniBea Bootloader P.S.S. My installation package of the extensions is corrupt, so installing it without extensions worked.

    EeePC 1101HA and Lion

    Hi everybody! I'd like to install iAtkos L2 on my Asus EeePC 1101HA. So I've downloaded the .dmg of iAtkos and I've copied it into my USB Pen Drive with Disk Utility using another Mac. If I boot from the USB, nothing happens: I see only an "endless" blinking dash. Suggestions? Thanks in advance
  24. Following a week of trial and error (a lot of errors), I was finally able to install last night my first Hackintosh! First attempt using Clover boot loader did not work and resulted mostly in kernel panic. Second attempt with Chameleon got me closer, but still I could not figure out what was wrong. The one thing that my gut feeling told me was that I may need to make sure I have maxed out my RAM with identical SO-DIMMs. When I started, the Elitebook had one 4GB and one 2GB SO-DIMM. When I tried swapping, there were further problems which could only be resolved by resetting the BIOS to default. After that, everything went mostly smoothly. This is my current BIOS configuration: With the boot flags -x -v -f I was able to finally get the installation completed: Could create an account and log in: and these are the screenshots showing the OS X: and as what the Elitebook is known to the Apple world, as a MacBook Pro 6.2: I'll post more details in a follow-up. Many special thanks go to all who have helped, but in particular to iFire, artur-pt, PJALM, joe75, Download-Fritz and Joseph. Apologies if I forgot any of the many from this forum who have actively helped me to get this far. Attached is the Manual for the HP8440p with hardware specifications, which is useful to know what kind of kexts to install. HP8440p Manual.pdf
