Getting the IORegistry dump is simple enough.

Download IORegistryExplorer.app(do a search)

File->Save.

 

Just save it as it is. Don't save it as a text file.

Because I'm having all kinds of issues with Clover... It only boots maybe once out of four times... I can't boot my perfectly good Mavs install with Clover, and I'd like to be able to boot both Yosemite for testing and Mavs for work until Final Cut Pro is fixed for Yosemite.

 

Basically, I've never used Clover, only just now because DP1 isn't compatible with Chameleon yet.

Yes that is correct. You'll have to tick certain options when you're custom installing clover to fix the Mavericks boot issue.

But yes that's the file to upload.

Ok, I'm working on a project right now but as soon as it's uploaded I'll boot back into Yosemite and get that file for you.

A little question.

 

How can I force Clover to choose the right volume to load nvram.plist ?

 

Booting on Yosemite I see that it fetches the Mavericks' plist.

While I had a look at Settings.c I noticed a lot of similar and thus IMHO error-prone checks. So I took the opportunity and created two helper functions to check a property for true or false to follow the principle of DRY.

 

So basically this patch[1] is only cosmetic, but should reduce lines of code and also inadvertent errors. There were actually incomplete checks e.g. in line 1496-1497.

 

Maybe you find it useful.

Big thanks! I will implement this patch.

I still didn't make such optimization just because I have many other work.

Regards!

I am trying to install Yosemite on an older build that currently has Mavericks installed.  I have a  GIGABYTE GA-X58-UD3R, I7-920 and a GTX 260.

 

For some reason I cannot get Clover to load via USB to start the installer without getting some kind of error.  Is there special settings I need to set clover up with via customization.  Do I need to add my DSDT anywhere in clover.  Thanks for any advice.

During installation of Clover to the USB do a 'custom' install and select one the BIOS methods in lieu of the 'standard' UEFI method. Also select one of the Themes during the custom install so it will look 'prettier'.

 

Given your video card you will need to make a change to the 'config.plist' file in the CLOVER folder. In the Boot section under Graphics it is set to inject Intel video, change that to 'false' and change Invidia to 'true'

Well, haven't been able to boot into Yosemite with Clover at all now... This is the reason why I can't wait for Chameleon to be ready! If I can get it to boot I'll upload that info... Wish me luck lol :)

If I knew more about Clover I wouldn't mind booting my Mavs install with it... I just get the same issue where it reboots right when it should be loading the desktop. Any ideas slice?

sorry if this has already been asked

 

does the last Clover release support the new Clover Configurator v4 format (.cconf)?

 

 

regards

No, use export from file menubar

Is it appropriate to ask for feature requests in this thread? I know Yosemite is top priority right now, but since we can boot with a custom vbios in osx without actually flashing it to the card, I think it would be really cool to have the ability to do this in Windows or Linux. For example, I flashed the bios on my gigabyte 6850 with a sapphire one that had been modified for vesa resolution and fan curves. The benefit of this was that I had proper boot resolution in all operating systems, a custom fan curve, and the ability to overclock it a little bit more. Also, I recall some people flashing their 6950 bios with a 6970 bios to get the extra shaders.

 

Do you guys agree that something like that could be useful?

 

I also had a question, as many of you know the uefi version of clover doesn't boot legacy OS's properly on some computers. Is it possible to have clover chainload a legacy version of clover that is installed on each of my Windows and Linux drives?

So was that the problem? The EDID thingy

No. In fact, I'm not exactly sure what it was that fixed it. All I know is I can successfully boot both 10.9.3 and 10.10 DP1 with Clover now. I'll post a rundown of what I did different here in a few minutes, on the move right now.

Well, I started from scratch and reinstalled Clover and Yosemite all over again. I didn't do anything all that different from last time, just went in and played with the configuration.plist a bit, changed a few options that seemed relevant, and for whatever reason, I can now boot 10.9.3 and 10.10 successfully every time with Clover. Feeling quite proud of myself lol

So the only couple of things I did differently this time was a) I checked the config.plist for clover and changed the value for inject kexts from "detect" to "yes", B) used Clover Configurator to install the MacPro5,1 SMBIOS that I always use, and c) I never ran single user mode to repair permissions and whatnot. I think with the newest Clover the kext injection is working properly, so I just dropped my needed kexts into the 10.10 folder in Clover.

 

That's basically all I did differently, and now I can dual boot Yosemite and Mavericks with Clover.

      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:

      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.

      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)

      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
