  1. For those wanting to try Windows 10, I thought I would create a short guide on how to create a Clover/UEFI Windows 10 installer with Rufus and clean install. This guide is tailored for legacy BIOS machines but should also work in systems with native UEFI firmware. Prerequisites 1. Access to OSX and Windows to run Rufus and install Clover 2. Install Rufus: Download from here 3. Download the Windows 10 insider preview ISO (build 10074) from here. Edit 29/7/15 RTM build 10240 available!: Download MediaCreationTool. Making the UEFI Windows Installer 1. In Windows, Insert a 4GB or larger USB and start Rufus with the following settings Partition scheme and target system device = MBR for UEFI computer File System FAT32 2. Click the “Create a bootable disk using ISO image” checkbox and the CDROM icon to browse/choose your downloaded ISO 3. Click Start & OK to burn the image to the USB. Notice the USB takes on the name of the original ISO. 4. After the image has been burned to the USB, copy bootx64.efi from the /efi/boot folder of the Windows ISO/DVD into /efi/microsoft/boot. Rename the file to "bootmgfw.efi" and also rename cdboot.efi to cdboot.bak. For Windows 7, you need to extract bootmgfw.efi from "install.wim" eg using 7-Zip, open the iso and navigate to \sources\install.wim\1\Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi and copy to efi\microsoft\boot on the USB. Installing Legacy Clover (for legacy BIOS machines to boot the installer in UEFI mode) 1. Install Clover onto the USB drive (in OSX) with the “use alternative booting PBR” option ticked as shown below. Note - you can also install legacy Clover onto the USB in Windows using the Bootice program - see post#23 2. Copy the config.plist, DSDT/SSDT.aml file(s) which are specific to your system into the Clover folder - Put config.plist in /EFI/CLOVER directory
 - Put DSDT.aml in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched - Put FakeSMC.kext and other kexts required in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.x (where x is your version of OSX) Installation of Windows 10 1. Create free space on the target hard drive for Windows 10. This can be done in OSX using Disk Utility or in Windows with Disk Management/Diskpart.exe. 2. It is recommended to temporarily disconnect all hard drives except the target hard drive when installing or updating Windows 10. 3. Boot the computer with the Installer USB, pressing <F12> (or whatever your system’s BIOS boot selection key is) to choose the USB and then pressing the number <6> key when you see Clover’s flashing underscore 4. At the Clover Main Menu, choose “Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from your_USB_name” ---> start the Windows 10 installer GUI 5. Follow the rest of the steps in this guide - http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1950-windows-10-clean-install.html Notes Choose the “Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)” option and just select the Unallocated Space for the installation —> the correct partitions will be automatically set up At the first reboot, boot to the USB again but at the Clover Main Menu, select “Boot Microsoft EFI boot menu from EFI” As the final step, don’t forget to install Clover on the hard drive . Major version upgrades through Windows Update (as opposed to a clean install) may overwrite the bootsector so legacy Clover might need to be re-installed. I recommend clean installing instead of letting Windows update perform an upgrade. If you run Windows 10 or 8 with Windows 7, you should turn off "Windows Hybrid Boot" to avoid chkdsk running every time you change from booting Windows 8/10 to Windows 7. Chameleon/Clover Emergency Boot Disk As an added bonus, by adding the attached Chameleon boot file to the root of the USB, you can use the installer as an emergency boot disk for Clover or Chameleon: Set your BIOS to boot first from USB ---> when you see the flashing underscore, press <1> to boot with Chameleon or <6> to boot with Clover .

    Win 10 su HD esterno

    Salve a tutto ho la penultima versione di notebook della apple 15" Mi serve installare win 10 nativo su un hd esterno ( non una virtualizzazione ma nativo ) Sapete se c'è modo magari con Boot Camp??
  3. Hey! :-) I really need some advice. I am not completely new to this but I admit I am far from being an expert. I tried various (about 7 or 8) How-Tos or Tutorials, read in-depth tips about partitions, UEFI, BIOS and what not ... but I am still too stupid to get this up and running! My Goal: Dual Boot OS X and Windows 10 with Clover UEFI (only) My Setup: 1x 250GB EVO 840 - Mac OS X 10.11.5 1x 120GB EVO 840 - Windows 10 GA-Z87N-Wifi, 16GB RAM, GA GeForce 760 OC, 1TB Seagate Barracuda (GPT, HFS+, Data only, disconnected), 250GB Maxtor HDD (GPT, HFS+, Data only, disconnected) Yesterday I was very close (I think): • I reformatted the EFI Partition on the OS X SSD and reinstalled the newest clover. • In OS X I reformatted the 120GB SSD to GPT with the main part formatted as FAT. • I double-checked the correct existence of the EFI partitions on the OS X SSD (disk0s1) and the Windows SSD (disk1s1). • I set my BIOS to UEFI only. • I (UEFI) booted to my Windows 10 Installer stick and installed Windows 10 on the 120GB SSD. • Windows installation finished flawlessly. • I booted once more into Windows via pressing F12 on my keyboard to see if it was working. • Then I booted into Clover ... • Now I have 4 or 5 NTFS entries, all of them left to the OS X entry, that all boot to nothing! • The last NTFS entry, the only one right to the OS X entries, started up Windows 10 correctly for two tries! I thought I did it ... well ... with the third try, booting to Windows turned into a black screen. Windows is starting up ... the circling dots appear ... then the screen turns off and it stops. When I reboot and do it again, the "Auto Repair" appears. Then again, Windows is booting to a black Screen. The next time "Auto Repair" appears again ... and so on and so on When I boot up Windows with "F12", selecting the Windows partition, everything seems to be working just fine. OS X is booting like a charme from Clover. What am I doing wrong? I work on this for over a week now and I am getting really frustrated. :-(

    Clover Legacy y Windows 10

    Buenas noches: He conseguido instalar El Capitan con el sistema Clover Legacy, arrancando éste desde la partición EFI. El sistema va perfectamente quitando los USB3, que aun sigo buscando la manera de parchearlos y que solo me detecta 16Gb de RAM en vez de los 22Gb que tengo. (esto ultimo no me importa mucho ya que lo que pretendo es dejar funcionando el dualboot) Ahora el problema lo tengo en Windows 10, las particiones aparecen como Legacy HD1, Legacy HD2, etc y no puedo localizar cual es la partición "Reservado para el Sistema" para optar el arranque de Windows10. Aparte supongo que también tendré que marcar esa partición como activa para poder arrancarlo. Alguna sugerencia? Gracias de antemano. Saludos!
  5. Bonjour à tous, Comment désinstaller/effacer une ancienne version de Clover sur un SSD ? Le SSD en question, un Crucial M4, hébergeait auparavant une table de partition GUID., Clover v3766 était installé dans la partition EFI. Une nouvelle table de partition (MBR) a été créée, mais le Clover est toujours actif et impossible à modifier ou mettre à jour vu qu'aucun outil (Utilitaire disque ou FDISK en ligne de commande) ne listent cette mystérieuse partition. Installer une version récente de Clover dans le MBR ne génère pas d'erreur, mais la version 3766 reste active ! Ma question est donc: comment se débarrasser de cette ancienne version de Clover, sans reformater le SSD ? Config: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R v2.0 BIOS FF - Xeon X5675 - 12GB DDR3 1600 Corsair Vengeance - SSD Crucial M4 512GB
  6. Hello So basically I am planning to install MacOS Sierra sooner or later, but I have a feeling that my current installation (Windows 10 Pro & Ubuntu 16.04) are going to cause trouble, because of Ubuntu's GRUB loader. Both operating systems are installed in UEFI mode, and that's why I am also going to use the Clover loader for my installation. What I just simply wonder is that if GRUB is going to interfere or not. Can I actually make a triple-boot with the current installation or do I have to get rid of Ubuntu and then reinstall it after I've got Clover?
  7. Hello! Last night I installed Yosemite in my VM on a Windows 10. I wasn't very happy with the quality so I decided to download El Capitan instead. Now this is an entirily different ball game all together. It works like a charm and after a few hours of general use it feels like a shock to then minimise the VM and boom I'm right back in Windows. Anyway everything works to my knowledge, the sound, video, wifi, etc ... The only thing is I tried to plug my Behringer Q1202USB audio interface in so I could play a video through my studio monitor speakers then the sound starts to crackle and pop. This also has an effect the video itself. Has anybody had a similar experience or know of a fix for this? (If it is even possible) My computer specs: Lenovo Y510P i7 4700MG 2.4 GHz 16G Ram 2 x Nvidia 755M SLI Thanks!

  9. Hello everyone! I have following configuration for the PC: 3.10 gigahertz Intel Core i5-4440 Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. B85M-D3H UEFI: American Megatrends Inc. FB 06/19/2014 Slot 'ChannelA-DIMM0' is Empty Slot 'ChannelA-DIMM1' has 4096 MB Slot 'ChannelB-DIMM0' is Empty Slot 'ChannelB-DIMM1' has 4096 MB ( 8 GB RAM) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 [Display adapter] What is the recommended procedure for installing OS X El Capitan on this? Your help would be much appreciated!
  10. After two days of trials and tribulation, I managed to get Capitan to work on Workstation 12 for Windows 10. I used a vmware image provided by a poster on youtube. U can find all the links on the youtube link. The trick is before u run 'Unlocker' u MUST turned off all vmware services that still run in the background. Used Task Manager. This is true whether u running workstation 12...11... otherwise you won't see the 'Apple' option in the menu. Then just follow the steps provided in the video. Now I can download a real capitan image and start experimenting. Pre-install image: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_mrqPTrlu-2NVFRaVY4cXVoVjA/view
  11. This has been an ongoing problem for at least a decade for me. I have a Windows 7 x64 machine I leave on as a file server. I have never had a problem accessing the shared drives in Mac OS X. However when accessing from a windows machine it gives an error saying I don't have permission. This particular time it is windows 10. I set the permission for everyone can read only. Can anyone explain this to me? Or help me access the shares from windows?
