Wanted to give Clover and try with OS X 10.10, download 2695 installer, loaded a fresh OS X install on a hard disk from a MacBookPro, I installed Clover and it hangs on b1f: init6

 

System is a Gigabyte X58-USB3

 

Runs Chameleon and OS X 10.9.3 just fine.

 

any ideas ?

I think that means Chameleon's boot1h is still in mbr. Not sure though.

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.

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.

      CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD

      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
      SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
      HDD: generic
      DVD Drive: generic
      PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
      Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page
