Slice is glad to present a new EFI bootloader.
CLOVER
Now version 2 rEFIt based.


It is open source based on different projects: Chameleon, rEFIt, XNU, VirtualBox. The main is EDK2 latest revision.
I also want to thank all who help Slice with the development. Credits and copyrights remain in the sources.
http://cloverefiboot.sourceforge.net/

Main features:

 

  • Boot into 10.4 - 10.8 OSX, Windows EFI and Linux EFI
  • Boot into LegacyOS (WindowsXP, Linux, DOS) by their bootsectors
  • This is EFI bootloader so it provides RuntimeServices for OS that impossible for Legacy Bootloaders
  • Mostly Clover do automatic detection of hardware and set all properties by default. But user can change them by config.plist
  • with Clover you may restart into other OS from Startup Disk prefPane
  • Config autodetect by OEM product name
  • UUID written into config.plist will be the same as in OS
  • Autopatch OemDSDT for working OSX
  • SMBIOS will be corrected to standard 2.6
  • ACPI will be corrected to standard 4.0. Custom DSDT will be loaded from booted partition or from EFI folder
  • MADT table may be corrected to resolve problem with NMI on some hardware
  • ACPI tables loading (SSDT-xx, APIC, BOOT, SLIC, SLIT, SRAT, UEFI...)
  • Correctly set PowerProfile for laptops (notebooks), desktops, workstations
  • Customizable RestartFix
  • sleep/wake fixes
  • PCIRootUID value (0,1) for device-injection for those who can't edit DSDT
  • Graphics Properties Injector for ATI, NVidia and Intel for wide range of supported cards. Also customizable.
  • Custom EDID for non-DDC monitors
  • USB fix (LegacyOff, Ownership, Builtin, clock-id) up to USB 3.0
  • HDA injector, HDMI fix.
  • Ethernet builtin injector
  • CPU turbo
  • P- and C-states generator
  • PLimitDict and UnderVoltage for CPU Speedstep
  • patch kernel on the fly for unsupported CPU like Atom and Ivy Bridge
  • patch kexts inside kernelcache for unsupported hardware
  • Extra kexts loading
  • Security mode for FireWire
  • Default boot after timeout
  • Customizable GUI: themes support, own icons, fonts.
  • There is a possibility to implement national languages and fonts. F1 - multilingual help
  • Saving boot.log in OS and preboot.log from GUI by typing F2
  • Save original (OEM) ACPI tables by pressing F4
  • Test DSDT patching with F5
  • Save videoBIOS into EFI/misc by pressing F6
  • Saving screenshots from GUI typing F10
  • CD/DVD eject by F12 and refresh menu after CD insertion

 



If you have a question please provide outputs from DarwinDumper (formed from Trauma tool). Thanks Trauma!

To begin with, congratulations to all of you, this project is fantastic!!!!!

 

Last night I tried the installer on my Lappy, but I can only see at boot "GPT, boot0, boot0, DONE", or something like that.

 

For those who have already installed the bootloader (Chameleon) there are specific warnings?

 

My partions on GPT disk:

 

Efi

osx 10.8.1

osx 10.8.0

 

 

Another curiosity, we can change now the APIC.aml table, for override the original, to surpass the Local Apic error for Insyde BIOSes? Is possible with this bootloader?

 

 

As soon as I can, experiment on USB key, and report results!

Excellent job on the setting up this topic Fabio & Slice.

 

Clover has grown and expanded incredibly this year and it now supports a wealth of options, many of which I don't use either because my hardware doesn't require them, or my setup already had the required patches applied. Because of that, and also the pace of development, I've missed out on the learning, experimenting and understanding of some of Clovers options and with the previous available documentation being either the Russian PDF at AppleLife, or one of the hundreds of posts at projectosx your opening posts here make a welcome resource.

 

Keep up the great work :)

Hi people, and thank you for your efforts !

I followed this tutorial :

How to install InstallESD.dmg to GPT. since r480.

 

First, you need to Restore InstallESD.dmg to disk by using Disk Utility.

Then, follow the stage 1 and stage 2 to install 10.7.x or 10.8.x to GPT, and auto-create the Recovery HD used for iCloud.

 

Stage 1

 

1.Remove kernelcache in InstallESD.dmg/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist.

<key>Kernel Cache</key> remove this line.

<string>xxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> remove this line.

2.Copy BaseSystem.dmg/System/Library/Extensions to partition of InstallESD.dmg and add other kexts (FakeSMC.kext).

3.Clover select to "Boot Mac OS X with extra kexts (skips cache)", and follow the installation with restart first time.

 

Stage 2

 

1.Remove kernelcache in target partition's /OS X Install Data/com.apple.Boot.plist.

<key>Kernel Cache</key> remove this line.

<string>xxxxxxxxxxxxx</string> remove this line.

( 10.7.x is /Mac OS X Install Data/com.apple.Boot.plist )

2.Copy InstallESD.dmg/System/Library/CoreServices and /mach_kernel to target partition's / .

3.Copy BaseSystem.dmg/System/Library/Extensions to target partition's / and add other kexts (FakeSMC.kext).

4.Boot to "OS X Install" with "Boot Mac OS X with extra kexts (skips cache)" and finish the installation.

(10.7.x is "Mac OS X Install")

 

I completed stage 1 (the installation), after restart i can't seem to detect my HFS+ drive on clover unless i change AHCI to IDE in my bios sata configuration. Once it is detected, it is stuck at [PCI Configuration Begin].

Tried FixDsdtMask = 0x0000 = Fail

npci=0x3000 PCIRootUID=0 GraphicsEnabler=Yes = fail

I did not change the smbios or anything else except doing a clean installation and following the above steps. So for stage 2, do i perform all these steps from the shell or any other way (like from windows partition for instance)?

I have an Asus G53JW-A1 with nvidia 460m GTX 1.5 Gb memory, and its working pretty well with Chameleon, but was just hoping to get something more Vanilla with your masterpiece and achieve better ACPI integration (Battery, Brightness control,...).

Please let me know .

@slayer2333 see at post #9, under AHCI timeout by bcc9,

 

kext editing (or use an injector), not dsdt fix

 

 

EDIT

 

or something like this?

 

<key>0</key>
  <dict>
    <key>Name</key>
    <string>IOAHCIBlockStorage</string>

Hi Slice.

I have absolutely no experience with ATI card (I don't have one).

 

One question related to Ati injector...

I see in the source only the "generic" Device ID like this:

{ 0x688D, 0x00000000, CHIP_FAMILY_CYPRESS,"AMD FireStream 9350",kZonalis},

 

Any reason for not add the specific SubId?

I have a lot of it... if you wont also add it...

I tried the last versione of Clover and i found this problem.

 

Boot Clover .

Press "O" .

Enable "Turbo" .

 

When i want to exit from menu and try to boot Clover Freeze. I'm alone?

Hi Fabio,

It works without any knowledge about specific SubsystemID.

Dunno about NVidia but sure about ATI algorithm. It works also for Mobile Radeons.

 

I tried the last versione of Clover and i found this problem.

 

 

 

When i want to exit from menu and try to boot Clover Freeze. I'm alone?

I think the "Turbo" is a dangerous characteristic but I can't make a proof if it is allowed.

@slice

 

the customedid key for me don't work, clover loads the key, but result in nothing if don't apply the fix in file

Slice, I've set SMBios to Mac Pro 5,1, but after booting from Clover, it is always become iMac12,1.

What can I do if I want to force it to identify the system as MacPro5,1?

 

This is the config.plist which I'm using now.

 

.
.
<key>SMBIOS </key>
<dict>
<key>BiosReleaseDate</key>
<string>03/21/12</string>
<key>BiosVendor</key>
.
.

 

-Problem Solved-

See if removing that space after SMBIOS helps.

 

<key>SMBIOS </key>

Thank you very much. Problem solved... :)

 

It's hard to notice the space in Xcode....

Can anyone give me an example about how to hide partition in Clover?

I don't understand what the introduction means.

 

What should I key for "VolumeString" and "String or it's part from boot.log?"

 

Is VolumeString the name of partition or something like disk2s1 or the UUID of the partition?

if you have a Laptop must work, but I doubt if you are using an external monitor, their EDID are published by their EEPROM, so, attention if your Display product/vendor ID already exists in your Overrides folder.

ProductID-717 indicate a generic files generated by Osx visible in ioreg (not a real product ID), and video acceleration is really required for override the EDID, your display must be attached to the framebuffer, without, injection does not work!

 

 

search mmod, for real Product/Vendor ID

Can anyone give me an example about how to hide partition in Clover?

I use the volume GUID. So for example, here's mine:

<key>Volumes</key>
<dict>
<key>HideAllLegacy</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>HideVolumes</key>
<dict>
<key>0</key>
<dict>
<key>VolumeString</key>
<string>F55D9AC4-08A8-4269-9A8E-396DBE7C7943</string>
</dict>
<key>1</key>
<dict>
<key>VolumeString</key>
<string>43EB9A16-6572-4B7F-A537-6303895DAE0A</string>
</dict>
</dict>
</dict>

You can get the GUID of each volume by checking your Clover bootlog.

Or easier still, run DarwinDumper and select the Disk Volume UUID & GUID option.

oh sorry, you said:

"i don't have graphics at all" and I thought this appen with Clover (no QE/CI

at all), .......perhaps I misunderstood.

 

only 2 thing, the string in the config.plist is property converted to BASE64, and maybe you have to remove your custom override file in S/L/D/O, using the Clover injection?

 

bye

      Update: On October 24, 2020, using clover to solve the macOS11 beta10 boot problem, you can now enjoy macOS11beta10, and the compatibility of subsequent versions is not guaranteed.
      HIDPI uses a modified version. You can directly execute the hidpi script to get a better experience. If you lose the repair, it is not within the scope of my support.
      Support upgrades without destroying the integrity of the original image.
      There seems to be a problem with the shortcut keys. If you can help solve it, thank you for your contribution.
       
      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air
                      :++++.          OS: 64bit Mac OS X 10.15.5 19F96

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro.

      Hi All.
      Im Happy to share my new EFI file that I put together  18/10/2020. which got me up and running 11.0  Beta(20A5395g) on my hack
      a thanks you to everyone who's work I have use to assemble this EFI File. and the help I have received from this site
      I have used openCore 0.6.3, sound work for me (HDMI) and onboard Ethernet. map the usb ports as you wish.
      the definition to iMac20,2
      hope it helps all who need it
      PS. Please leave a comment if the EFI File is helpful to you
      (No Kexts were Harmed in the making of this EFI)
      THIS EFI. WAS MADE ON A Z490 GIGABYTE MASTER For the Z490 Gigabyte Master ONLY

      Hello All,
       
      It's been a while that I am trying to update my system to 10.15.16.
      The install seem to start, then at reboot time I only see the Normal boot and the Recovery option from the Clover boot menu.
      None of those 2 allow to complete the update.
       
      Is there any ways to force it to install and/or show the "Update" option on the Clover boot screen?
       
      PS: I'm using Z97-Gaming-3
