First post, thank you all for any help offered. I am coming from a certain commercialized hackintosh community - after seeing such amazing vanilla installs and reading of the talent here, I decided to have a go at not using such software methods. And I immediately got myself into a predicament
I successfully upgraded from Mavericks to Mojave 10.14.2 but decided to start over and do a clean install because my Vega Frontier was not playing OOB even with Lilu & whatevergreen - and there was a lot of 'code junk' Clover barfed at boot from this 'commercialized software'.
I created Mojave USB installer from scratch using the latest Clover, it worked fine, got me to the Mojave install screen.
For reasons unknown to me, I decided for one last ditch effort to see if I could get my already installed Mojave playing nicer - instead of starting over clean. So I installed the latest Clover on my Mojave SSD, (it had a Clover version YEARS ago when I last installed Mavericks) and I replaced the EFI file with the kexts and config of my USB EFI file because I figured, since the USB installer launched, it was all good to go.
Now nothing boots after BIOS. Not my Mavericks drive, Mojave SSD, nor my USB Mojave Installer. They all hang right where Clover usually launches. I look at my USB lights and nothing flashes...
The only drive I can use is Windows 8.1 (my testing environment) and not from Clover. That's just booting windows up without any HD's plugged in.
Is there a way to rescue my predicament? I don't have another Mac computer and CloverConfig only runs on Mac. Is there a way to fix the USB from Windows? Thanks!
Hey guys, my hack gets stuck at the attached screen, saying the 'VirtualSMC EFI module is broken' and it's waiting on some boot media. It does boot once in a while, but I cannot reproduce what makes it work, removing all USB devices doesn't help for instance. I know this seems to be a common issue, but the solutions I found didn't help.
Please find attached the screenshot and my Clover folder. Any support much appreciated! (:
Salve ragazzi, io ho un pc con sopra Windows e Sierra(che ho installato grazie a questo fantastico forum)
Recenetemte ho avuto problemi con gli aggiornamenti windows 10(Che uso urgentemente per lavoro)
E girando per i forum di Windows, ho capito che il problema era dato da un "interferenza" di clover di quando windows faceva i soliti riavvi quando aggiorna.
Io volevo chiedere se era possibile selezionare MOMENTANAMENTE Windows come avvio primario e quindi non su clover, una sorta di bypassare clover
e quindi il pc avvia o riavvia e va subito ad avviare windows senza passare da clover, in modo da fare aggiornare Windows e poi "RIATTIVARE" Clover esattamente come prima
Esiste un modo di fare ciò senza perdere clover o dati etc?
Grazie se risponderete, buona serata ragazzi!
Hey there, I was on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 which was working perfectly. But yesterday I decided to update it to 10.14.0 Mojave from app store. I could see both Install macOS from USB as well as macOS main drive and recovery partition even in the reboot during installation but after it finished, it was all gone. Interestingly, there is a boot entry in UEFI called Mac OS X but clover can't see it. Another thing I would like to point is that my EFI partition number changed from 9 to 8 after installation.
Motherboard: Asus H81M CS
CPU: i3 4150

My wife's early 2009 Snow Leopard iMac has started failing to boot properly and I'm looking for some troubleshooting tips.
Booting from cold, it gets past the logon screen and starts loading the desktop. It's quite slow at this point, but does load all the (hundreds of!) icons on the desktop. It also tries to re-open Firefox which had a lot of tabs open. Initially it would load a Firefox window but not complete loading the internals. On one boot I think I managed to close Firefox and now it still tries to load but just displays "Firefox" in the title bar with no windows.
I can initially access a few menus, spotlight, Finder, the dock, but any further action results in a beach ball for these, and they can't be accessed again. I was able to navigate Finder to try to launch Terminal but just it just gave me the beach ball.
I've left it like this for about half an hour but it doesn't get any further and I have to force shutdown (long press of power button).
I tried booting to safe mode (holding down S on startup) but the end result was the same.
I've been able to boot to a live ubuntu USB disk and can access files on the hard disk, so I've started a backup. We have a time machine backup but it's not that recent.
I'm hoping it's just a corrupt file, but suspect it's the hard disk starting to fail.
