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.

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
I have a dedicated hard drive with several OS on it.... I have Windows 8, Windows 10, Linux Mint and now Mac OSX So I am using the boot manager rEFInd. I have EFI bios with motherboard Z97 Pro. Right now I need to have the boot USB stick plugged in to be able to launch Clover to boot OSX. Clover is picked up by rEFInd and displayed as a Clover. I would like to change so that I can boot OSX directlyfrom rEFINd. I.e not see Clover. I also don't want to be dependant on having the USB stick in. Can I move the boot files to a hard drive... If so - how?
