    Dell Latituded E5440 not posting

    I am trying to install macOS Mojave 14.4.0 on Dell Latituded E5440 with specs: Intel i5-4310U Intel HD4400 with screen resolution of 1600x900 When posting the first time to install macOS on the internal drive it stops here: apfs_module_start:1393: Load: com.apple.filesystems.apfs v945.260.7, apfs-945.260.7, 2019/04/26 https://imgur.com/nWBmwiY Then a garbled screen appears with the error sign: https://imgur.com/37rZpi8 I thought that the problem is that the usb is not read after it boots macOS, the usb controller is an intel 8 series one. What I have tried is: Plusgging the usb in different ports (USB3 and USB2 ones) Try a different usb that is USB2 Include GenericUSBXHCI.kext include USBInjectAll.kext change the ig-platform-id value change the bios options to also read legacy bootloaders Is the problem that the USB is not injected after the boot? or is it a different problem? If you have any suggestions please inform me. Attached you can find the clover folder also containing the original ACPI and the SSDTs. EFI.zip

  4. Hi guys, I am creating this topic to discuss an idea I had about a way to force the Mac OS installer to not install using apfs. So we know that apfs does not runs well on drives not made by apple because it's designed to run on apple firmware, so error correcting features will not work and this will cause data corruption and data lose over the long period of time, so some people will like more to not use apfs and avoid all that problems, but apple has integrated an ssd detection mechanism that will force to upgrade to apfs if an ssd is detected, so my idea is to create a kext that is loaded before the system initializes sata devices and then forces the system to detect all sata and nvme devices as hard drives, I think that is possible, but I do not know iokit so much well to do it, so I am creating this thread, to ask if it's possible to create something like that using io kit and other system libraries to create a kext the could work with clover kext injection and force the system to see all the ssd as hard drives, and also other idea for the kext is that it will enable itself to run only when you are booting into a Mac OS installer, maybe that could be also done using a clover kext to patch string directly on the sata family kext, so what do you think about my idea? is there someone that could help me to create the kext or a clover patch? Thank you for checking out my thread, I hope that we will find a solution soon PS: I know that there re things like scripts and commands to install without apfs, but my aim is to create a method that lets the users to tone perform any special task inside the Mac OS installer

    Clover apfs.efi driver x64
  6. In this video I first show the boot time of my system running on an OCZ Vertex 3 SSD APFS formatted and with TRIM enabled. As you can see the boot has a long pause at these "FIPSPOST_USER" stuff. The solution that always worked for me is to create a time machine backup and restore to disk. As you can see after the restoring that long pause is drastically reduced. The initial boot time is 45 seconds circa, after restoring is down to 22 seconds. TRIM is still enabled and disk is APFS.

  9. Premise: the following explanation is only to exploit the little APFS Recovery (less than 600 MB) embedded inside the APFS File System, so avoiding an external USB Installer, you can't reinstall macOS from here but use just the Utilities (Terminal, DiskUtility) in case of emergency, however as known from a Recovery Terminal can do a lot of things, especially troubleshooting an unbootable macOS. To those who have installed Mojave on APFS file system with a GUID/GPT Scheme (I suppose it will work even on MBR scheme), I have managed to "fix" the "APFS Recovery Volume" to make it bootable from any computer (capable of HighSierra and Mojave) with USB input devices (trackpad, keyboard, USB mouse and so on) responsive, working wifi and everything else, just follow next steps, totally safe and harmless for any Mojave installation, after booting normally from your Mojave APFS Volume, launch Terminal and type:diskutil apfs list{locate your "APFS Recovery Volume" on diskXs3 [for an internal "APFS Container" is typically mounted on disk1s3]} On APFS scheme the "APFS Recovery Volume" is tipically on the 3rd (hidden) partition.diskutil mount diskXs3 open /Volumes/Recoverylanding on Finder, double click on the "random-numbers-letters" folder (it's the gpt UUID folder where Recovery stores itself), once inside rename these files:prelinkedkernel into prelinkedkernelbackup immutablekernel into immutablekernelbackup PlatformSupport.plist into PlatformSupportbackupDon't close this opened Finder window yet, once you renamed those 3 files, now you have to open a new Finder window, then from this new Finder window go into your Mojave path: /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/ while inside this path copy the file prelinkedkernel into the previous Finder window exactly where you renamed those 3 files lastly rename this fresh copied file from prelinkedkernel to immutablekernelNow you have a working APFS Recovery Volume. Note for those who use Clover bootloader in the config.plist you have to don't "Hide" the APFS Preboot and Recovery hidden partition, otherwise you can't use the APFS Recovery.
  10. After upgrading to High Sierra, I also converted to APFS and enabled FileVault. Everything's working mostly fine, but got a couple of minor issues: (1) Is there any way to disable the verbose boot that apfs.efi chucks out before the Clover boot menu? (2) To boot w/ FileVault enabled, I have to select a Clover boot menu icon called 'Preboot'. However, I can't seem to find a volume or path ID which will enable me to create a custom entry for it on my Clover Configurator GUI -> Custom Entries menu. Is this because it's all synthesized inside an APFS container? Any way to create a custom entry for Preboot?
