    Vector Themes

    Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later. It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes. It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
  3. Here I propose all developer will publish their explanation of changes made. Only developers allowed to post here. Also there will be no questions and discussion. There is another thread "Clover general discussions" here. Previous change explanations up to revision 3088 is attached. ChangesHistory.rtfd.zip Next revisions up to current 3174 contains: 1. Bugs eliminations. 2. Speed improvements. 3. Support for new hardware: DDR4, Haswell 5th, AMD Radeon, Nvidia, Intel Graphics. 4. Approved kernel and kext patches. Nothing new for users.

  5. Hola a todos, he intentado instalar por activa y por pasiva Yosemite, y solamente consigo KP en el disco de instalación, ni siquiera puedo arrancar la utilidad, estoy a punto de desistir y quedarme con Maveriks que me funciona bien, pero quisiera poder usar algunas funcionalidades de 10.10, como Xcode actualizado, migrar a fotos desde iphoto, etc.... Antes que nada os pongo la configuracion actua de mis sistema: Placa base Asus P5B-SE Procesador Intel Core2 Quad 6600 Memoria 8Gb DDR2 800mhz Gráfica Nvidia GTX260 Varios discos duros uno de ellos SSD No encuentro un tutorial que me indique como instalar Yosemite, desde Leopard, siempre usaba istaladores, hasta que conocí chameleon, despues utilicé myhack para instalar maveriks, alguna manita que me echaron con el dsdt.aml , SMbios.plist, etc...., pero cero que a partir de 10.10 cambia todo este tema, al parecer el bootloader a usar es clover, que es algo mas avanzado y según algunos post que he leído maravilloso. Pues ahí me pierdo, no se usar Clover, no entiendo el arranque. Hasta ahora en uno de mis discos duros creaba dos particiones, una de 8gb la cual usaba a modo de instalador (a modo de USBinstaller) y la otra donde instalaba osx, después con CCC pasaba al SSD todo el sistema. Por favor iluminarme un poco, Adjunto foto de uno de los kp que suelta el usb de instalación al intentar arrancar (el usb de instalación está hecho con diskmaker +chameleon tal y como explicaba el maestro Derty en uno de los post de este mismo foro http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/301588-crear-instalador-yosemite-usb/). Gracias.
  6. Hi guys! I'm new on Hackintosh and I have a little problem (I think it's little). Yesterday I made my first hackintosh on a Xiaomi Notebook Air. All went well, but after an update (from High Sierra to 10.13.4) after the first reboot, in the bootloader doesn't appear nothing. I tried with the USB with Clover but I only can reinstall the entire system, I can not boot the system. It has a solution or I need to reinstall all again?Thanks a lot and sorry if the question is fool.

  10. 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
  11. Hello! I'm trying to install El Capitan on my Lenovo Yoga 300 but I can't even get any bootloader to show up after turning on the computer... I tried Enoch, Chameleon and Clover and neither of them works. My BIOS can't see Enoch USB, but sees Clover. Unfortunately, when I try to boot them I can see nothing... I tried Clover in UEFI only mode, with Legacy mode, but no success. Please help me! My laptop has Intel Celeron N3050 with Intel HD.

    rEFInd feat. Ozmosis

    Hello everybody, I’m using Ozmosis with a Gigabyte H81M-HD3 but unfortunately this board hasn’t enough space in it’s ROM to store the apfs.efi, too. Than I have a second machine, my ZBox-Nano that not even has the space for the really necessary stuff. Sure, Clover is able to solve all this problems but I want to go with Ozmosis Here comes rEFInd into the game: http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/ This boot loader could be installed into the ESP. rEFInd is not only able to detect apfs formatted partitions but also to load uefi drivers! And after some weeks of testing, I claim that rEFInd is doing his job very well. rEFInd is open source so I take a look into it and found a good starting point to learn a little more about the UEFI. The result is a rEFInd version with some additions, that should make life easier and more colorful …. I’m using this „enhanced“ version in two different setup’s. First the H81M, that comes with ozmosis, hfsplus, fakesmc and a patched dsdt inside the ROM. Here rEFInd is only loading apfs.efi and scanning for macOS. The Oz directory on the ESP is not in use. Second the ZBox. I only replaced the FileSystem driver with EnhancedFat and patched the ROM to unlock the MSR. rEFInd is loading hfsplus, apfs and ozmosis and is scanning for macOS. Ozmosis is loading dsdt, ssdt, kext and defaults from the Oz directory on the ESP. If you like to test it: Installation is easy but do it at your own risk! Unzip the download and open the directory in Finder. It comes with rEFInd, ozmosis.efi, apfs.efi, hfsplus.efi and a Oz directory with mac mini defaults and fakesmc.kext. Goto Efi/Oz and adapt it, to suit your needs. Goto Efi/Boot/drivers_x64, if you have ozmosis or hfsplus installed into your ROM, delete it from the drivers directory because you don’t need to load it again. If you are ready to go, mount your ESP and copy shellX64.efi and the Efi directory into the ESP root. Btw.: This is a EDKII shell, that comes with some functions, which are needed by the nsh scripts I used for changing rEFInd’s configuration from the boot menu. This is a round up of the changes I made, but after some more testing I will create a fork on GitHub. Until then I can provide a patch against the current refind source, if someone is interested. rEFInd 0.11.2-enhanced Changes / Additions A. Configuration rEFInd is showing a message while scanning for devices. To disable this message use: hide_scan_msg 1 Boot Splash is an extra banner used only with timeout -1 This banner is splashing centered at the boot screen. boot_splash banners/banner-black.png Color Mode can be any combination from the following 0=off 1=icon_auto, 2=icon_value 4=font_auto, 8=font_value 16=menu_auto, 32=menu_value 64=back_value color_mode 0 <- function is disabled (default) color_mode 21 <- icons, text and selections are tinted automatic background color from the banner color_mode 85 <- icons, text and selections are tinted automatic background color from value (for transparent banner) color_mode 101 <- icons, text are tinted automatic menu / selection color from value background color from value (for transparent banner) *_auto generates the color from the current background color *_value enables the corresponding rgb(a)_color rgba colors are in hex RED, GREEN, BLUE, ALPHA rgb colors are in hex RED, GREEN, BLUE rgba_color_icon f3,f3,f3,5e rgba_color_menu d3,d3,d3,5e rgba_color_font d3,d3,d3,5e rgb_color_back 0c,6f,b8 Space between icons in pixel # big-icons(0-256) small-icons(0-64) y-spacing(0-64) icon_spacing 64 32 24 B. Behaviour The unmodified rEFInd is scanning all devices at start. Then it loads the drivers if any detected and scans the devices again. This is good for Mac's but we want to load the drivers for sure, so I change this a little. Now rEFInd only scans for the ESP to know it's location. Then it reads the config, load the drivers and start scanning devices. Also this version is able to detect the 'macOS Install Data'. This is necessary for installing and updating macOS on partitions formatted with apfs. New embed banner, arrows and selections. New embed font (Ubunutu-Mono 18pt and 28pt). New os_icons from https://github.com/munlik/refind-theme-regular New tool and function icons. Visual changes for creating the boot entries. Changed icon spacing And some more ... Update (14.12.07): - adaptable icon spacing - apfs.efi from macOS 10.13.2 Have Fun! rEFInd-0.11.2-enhanced.zip
  13. Could someone tell me in detail what all these features are and what exactly they mean? I would be grateful. I mean Clover and its settings, especially the CPU and PCI Devices tabs. I will start with the CPU: Halt Enabler PLimitDict UnderVoltStep Double First State Generate PStates Generate CStates Enable C2 Enable C4 Enable C6 Enable C7 Use system IO C3 Latency Bus speed (KHz) QPI (MHz) Saving mode Patch APIC Then PCI Devices: USB Ovner Ship USB Injection Inject Clock ID Inject EFI Strings Just a short description of what it is and what it serves.
  14. Hi, I`m using ESXi 5.5 U1 and Mavericks 10.9.4 VM. Creating clean install and start testing. I have been unable to get any bootloader to load after start Mac OS X VM (Mavericks 10.9.4). After installing and reboot VM going to default Mac screen, and if I make changes in bootloader, they do not reflect. Example installing on clean VM Chameleon (or other bootloader) and make changes (-v, loading kexts .. etc) and after reboot this changes do not reflect! Testing with Chimera, Chameleon and Clover. They don't work... Any ideas?
  15. I finally managed to successfully install Mavericks (10.9.2) on my PC, everything worked fine. I thought it would better to make a backup of the system like what I did with Mountain Lion. So I created a dmg with CCC. But when I restored the system with Disk Utility, I got a boot1 error. I'v tried the boot1h method, it didn't work. I booted into Mavericks with Chameleon CD, and reinstalled Chameleon, still no luck. Since I have Windows installed on my machine, I'v always booted into systems directly with grub4dos. Restoring Mountain Lion the same way has never resulted in this error. Does anyone have any idea what I should do to fix? Thanks for any input.
  16. My Setup::::: Toshiba Satellite p55w-c5204 Processor: intel i7-5500u Graphics: Intel HD 5500 Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio Hard Drive: SSD 256 GB Ram: 8GB (4GB x 2) Display: Full HD IPS Wireless: Intel Wireless 7265AC I've successfully installed Hackintosh Sierra 10.12.3 with the help of TransMac app. I know the wireless isn't working as of now. So I've purchased a wireless usb device(Prolink WN2001) and it works. I somehow managed to make things work like audio, battery percentage etc. The main problem I'm facing is with Bootloader & Graphics. Intel HD5500 is detected but shows 7MB. The windows counterpart I've previously checked shows Dynamic Memory of 128 MB by default so it shouldn't be problem. My questions are::: 1. How can I boot with hard drive without USB being plugged in? 2. How to fix the graphics issue? Do osx need to be booted from the hard drive in order to fix graphics issue? Any help would be appreciated. ~Thanks
  17. Hi, I successfully installed el capitan on my laptop (HP-DV6 6c55se) almost everything work good except : - I need boot flags like -v and -f to system boot, I tried to edit Extra/org.chameleon.Boot .plist but it's didn't work, So I don't know why and where the bootloader boot flags. - I have tow graphic card (intel HD 3000 - ATI 6790m) ATI doesn't work but intel work with VRAM (Dynamic, Max): 384 MB
  18. Just curious. One of the drawbacks for me (as a perfectionist I guess) of building a Hackintosh is having to use a third-party bootloader to start the system. I know, this isn't bad, it isn't going to make it much slower, but for me it's just a thing. I've been doing a little bit of research into the stock Apple bootloader and stumbled onto this Wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BootX_(Apple) Of course this is the older version (PowerPC), but it does have a reference to the new Intel EFI bootloader (reference #4: https://web.archive.org/web/20080706145146/http://developer.apple.com/documentation/MacOSX/Conceptual/BPSystemStartup/Articles/BootProcess.html I have searched this forum and haven't found anything definitive. So I just wanted to ask: has anyone attempted to boot from a modified Apple bootloader? If not, what are the main reasons this won't work? More notes: I've heard that one of the reasons this is not possible is because motherboards lack HFS+ support. Is it possible however to have the bootloader load the HFS driver? No, I don't have good access to an actual Mac, so I haven't done any experimentation myself. Yes, I have a satisfactory knowledge of operating systems, I know generally what a bootloader does, and if you throw jargon at me I'll understand it, or at least try to - so don't be afraid to post very technical comments
  19. I have a question regarding Clover's boot loader. I have 3 SSDs, one for Mac, one for Windows, and one for Data. When the boot loader loads, I have one Mac partition and 4 Windows partitions (the 4 include Windows OS, Windows System Reserved, an unknown Windows partition, and Data). Is there any way I can minimize it to just 1 Mac and 1 Windows partition? I've done some research, and realized that it has something to do with adding a string with a UUID. The thing is, the 3 partitions that I want to be hidden are not on a GPT drive. They are instead in the MBR partition style. So the UUID is not the same as the examples I've found online. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Note: I've attached my bootlog just in case. If you need any additional info, please let me know. Thanks in advance! bootlog.log.txt
  20. Hey guys, so i've managed to install Both Mountain Lion 10.8.3 and Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit on the same HDD in MBR Mode. The Mountain Lion install was a vanilla one. Downloaded the DMG file, Made some changes to it so that it can install to MBR, and installd Chamelion Boot Loader to the same USB. First installed Mountain Lion and then Windows 7, everything went smoothly as i expected. The Main problems im facing in Mountain Lion are Audio and the boot loader. Problem 1 :- Audio is not working even after installing Realtek Kext and Voodoo Kext through M-beast and otherways. I dont have speakers, i only use a headphone. Anyway, the audio is not working and no sound output devices detected. Problem 2 :-I've installed chamelion bootloader, updated it, and also installed a theme through chamelion wizard. The thing is that, i am able to boot from HDD, but its not showing the theme, just the plane text, where we select OS with Arrows. Problem 3 :- The apple logo on bootup is stretched and not full screen, though i have selected 1080p resolution in both M-beast and Chamelion Wizard. Problem 4 :- Sometimes Mountain Lion freezes and i should restart the whole system. Random Freezes while doing actions, like opening folder or launching something from dock. I' dont know if my Graphics Card ( Asus GTX 560) is working good with OS X, but so far so good. Can someone please tell me how can i check if my card is working with OSX.? Also my card is Shown in About this Mac. Extra info :- I've installed my own dsdt (from dsdteditor) through M-beast. Sleep Not working, Restart and Shutdown is Working. Is there anything else should i install to make the system stable..? Please answer my questions, mainly about sound prob and Boot theme prob. Thanks a Bunch !
  21. Hi everyone... Short question: I got my MacPro1,1 running OS X Mavericks using Chameleon Bootloader. But I also have a (Boot Camp) HD that runs Win7 64Bit which also needed some time to make it work because Apple doesn't want a MacPro1,1 running Win7 64Bit. Any idea how I can simply add this HD to the Bootloader's menu? Or do I have to completely build this HD from scratch? Thanks in advance for some good ideas or hints. Cheers Ralf
  22. No matter what I tried, I can't seem to even get the bootloader to load. Always getting stuck on the spinning slash mark (-). P55 with i5 Mobo, set everything in the BIOS like the guides said. Even tried the USB patch for P55 boards - no chance. I can install Debian and Windows without any problems. Any ideas?
  23. I have the latest Clover 3021 installed on my Z87 based motherboard and I have set no boot logs. I use the UEFI option to boot Clover and it makes about 45 seconds to go from the Bios screen to Clover's boot selector. After the timeout, the screen goes black for about 25 more seconds before I can see the verbose output of Yosemite's startup sequence. I find these numbers quite enormous and I seek help making them a little bit more acceptable. By contrast, my Windows 8.1 boot screen appears almost instantly after the Bios screen. An idea?
  24. Hi, I have been unable to boot into my Hackintosh. First, I had a boot loop at Darwin (brief flash of apple logo before rebooting), but I could get in using a stick with Chimera on it. Then, I noticed when I tried with the hard drive I got the boot0 error, so I followed the guide online involving moving a file to the boot volume. Nothing worked. I wonder if there is a way to just reload the bootloader, overwriting some of the old stuff, but preserving the data. I originally used Tony but not sure if that was best choice...i could reload it with unib. but i'm afraid it will overwrite everything and my data will be lost. thanks a lot..
  25. I was running on my laptop, an Asus G1Sn, both win7 and SnowLeopard retail, thanks to chameleon 2.0 RC3 and everything was fine. Few days ago I decided to re-install win but unfortunately, it install the win bootloader too so now i cannot boot OsX and chameleon just disappeared. Honestly i don't remember how i did it the first time, was long time ago, but for sure I installed mac running chameleon from usb and after I put it on my laptop, and before i was running a non-vanilla version of OsX. All I've tried so far was completely useless, is there any way to run from usb or install chameleon using win or a linux live-cd?? Or even better reanimate the previous chameleon? Thanks a lot.
