Alright, thanks to some help I was able to get everything sorted out and I'm now booting Mavs and Yosemite with Clover from SSD.  If you have the same issue I had feel free to DM me I'll tell you how to fix it.  Now I have another issue:

 

I'm using GenericUSBXHCI.kext to enable USB 3.0.  I used it with Mavs as well and it's always worked nicely.  Problem is, with Clover, my USB 3.0 ports break when I wake up from sleep.  It's happening in both Mavericks and Yosemite, and everything works fine until sleep.  Is there some type of Clover setting that I should be checking in my config?  Thanks again in advance.

Play with these in you config.plist  You can get a lot of help on config here..

<key>Devices</key>
	<dict>
		<key>USB</key>

Alright, started by turning them all to false. I don't have the HighCurrent one by default so I left it off. Don't think I have problems charging iPads anyways. Didn't work, I'll just have to turn them on and off and see if it does anything. Are any of these keys known to cause issues specifically with 3.0? Because all my other ports work fine after sleep.

The problem with USB 3.0 is not a Clover problem. See here and the whole thread. May be you found those solution is better.

Checking it out now, thanks Slice. 

 

Okay as far as I can tell, I need to install V12?

...and do I need to uninstall GenericUSBXHCI?

Yes, don't mix. Either Generic or Apple but not both.

Ok... I removed genericUSB and installed that IOUSBFamily.kext. Now it reboots during verbose right when it gets ready to load USB kexts. Probably user error again lol lemme see what I did wrong

I'm thinking the prelinked kernelcache still has the GenericUSBXHCI in it... Report back in a few

Well, I'm pretty sure I have both kexts in my kextcache somehow, and I cannot boot at all because I can't boot without caches. Do you know of a way I can boot without caches, or rebuild the cache for Yosemite from my Mavericks install?

Drag /System/Library/Caches/startup/* to trash.

Hey, Slice!

 

Remember those lousy Geekbench scores I was getting with Yosemite? Well, I sort it out, following a tip from Pike: it was the BIOS! Just loaded default values, changed back a thing or two, so OS X boots, and got back my precious 11K+ points. Those strange intermediate p-states are still there, though, and HWMonitor reports temps hotter that I'd like, but the overall performance of the system reached another league, and now I agree with folks who say Yosemite is even snappier than Mavericks. Using Clover rev. 2964, by the way.

 

All the best!

Ya I removed the Startup folder and am now left with this, as I expected...

Is there any way to fix this without being able to boot the Yosemite partition?

EDIT: Fixed it by dragging and dropping "kernelcache" from my Yosemite installer should be using all the same kexts so I just need to get in and rebuild it :)

The problem with USB 3.0 is not a Clover problem. See here and the whole thread. May be you found those solution is better.

Ok bro, I got rid of all traces of GenericUSBXHCI and now have the AppleUSBXHCI loaded and running my 3.0 ports. And USB 3.0 is still broken up wake up from sleep, and I can't duplicate the problem with Chameleon. You sure there's nothing else I should be checking as far as the config.plist goes? Or somewhere else?

AppleUSBXHCI has ACPI dependency that requires DSDT patch and/or adding SSDT but I don't remember details. Read the thread about this.

But why is this only an issue when I boot with Clover...? My USB3 works fine after sleep when booting with Chameleon. I don't feel like I should be messing with drivers that already work. I just need to know where to look in Clover.

Did you speak about the same system? Yosemite?

You may compare ioregs with Clover and with Chameleon. USB3 settings here.

There may be different tuning, different settings but until I see digits I can say nothing.

I've been using GenericUSBXHCI for as long as I've had this rig on Mavericks, and never once had this issue with Chameleon. Now that I am booting the same Mavericks install (and Yosemite now) with Clover, my USB3.0 only works until I wake from sleep. What "digits" can I provide you in order for you to believe me? Lol

Is this possibly something to do with the issue?  This message/error is not present at boot with Chameleon: 

6/12/14 12:08:46.000 AM kernel[0]: USBF:    0.547    GenericUSBXHCI::CreateRootHubDevice  Bus 14 already taken

if chameleon works good to you, why you want change it ? to use Clover you need make some tests with the configuration in config.plist, and the part more important is know that you make, for this Clover Wiki, there  with a bit of  reading you can understand like work clover and your configuration

Because I started messing with Clover in order to install Yosemite and I started liking it more and more. I'm a 'tinkerer' I suppose. Anyway, it shouldn't matter, I was just asking a question regarding USB 3.0 and Clover. There's clearly something I'm missing, and I'm just looking to be pointed in the right direction. I've been through the wiki and didn't see anything that stood out as important re: USB 3.0. I'll just have to keep looking if no one else has ever had this issue.

This is probably a DSDT issue.

Use the same DSDT that you use in Chameleon, and disable Clover's DSDT fixes. I believe that then USB3 state after sleep should behave the same.

Hi Slice and all!

Slice, first of all, I want to congratulate you and all the team for the great bootloader which is Clover. Great work. 

Slice after the upgrades made ​​to Yosemite, here on my system, I ended up with no speed step, I had no problems before, and without the use of an edited DSDT, just using the resources of Clover itself. Have you heard anything about this? Clover would be some change that may be incompatible with my system? 
thank you in advance.

Hello everybody.

 

I installed Clover 2k v2703 onto my 2GB USB stick. When trying to boot it I get "b1t:init", after a few seconds it changes to "b1t:init6" and then my computer reboots. At install I selected "No update for PBR and MBR", "CloverEFI 64Bit SATA", "AppleStyle" as a theme, no drivers and no RC Scripts. The config.plist is attached, I do not use a DSDT.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, should I just remove the whole DSDT section?

I want to give my hack another try and I think the issues I'm facing are to do with the settings I chose in clover. Can anyone with a working Yosemite hack let me know what settings they used in clover for the Z77-DS3H? I really appreciate it if someone can help me out with the same motherboard. This is the settings I use. I'm pretty sure I am selecting things that I don't need or things that should be something else. This motherboard was recommended to me due to it being "compatible" with OS X. I have not one issue with Mavericks. I can boot Yosemite and get many things working, The only issue I have is the share menu and the today screen missing the widgets and the share feature doesn't work.

      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method:You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      -2nd and I think the best method:Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Zcard (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode:UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the install zip (bootpack & postinstall): Click here -> acer_aspire_v591g_installfiles.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

       
      Before updating to a new version of Mojave please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
      Mojave & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart
      list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4)
      sel vol 4
      list part(Select System type partition, for example 2)
      sel part 2
      assign letter=b(This will "mount" your EFI partition)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI)
      2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      TLDR:
      I'm trying to boot MacOS on a Chromebook without UEFI. I'm stuck at getting the bootloader (Chameleon/Clover) to work.  
      My setup / context:
      I have an Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
      Available ports:
      2 x USB-C 1 x USB-A 3.0 MicroSD Slot No USB A 2.0 (I've read that Clover has problems with USB 3.0) Firmware:
      There's no UEFI firmware available and by default, it doesn't even allow booting anything other than ChromeOS. Thanks to MrChromebox (big shoutouts!), I flashed a custom legacy bios that allows me to boot anything linux related. This bios is flashed into the RW_LEGACY section of the existing bootloader (coreboot afaik) and doesn't have any configuration options. If I have to change a setting, I could try compiling his bios payload myself with the specific setting enabled.  
      What I've tried so far:
      Chameleon attempts:
      Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
       
      1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
      Output:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: done
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_BEFORE".
       
      2 - Install Chameleon after restoring the base system:
      Output:

      I haven't been able to reproduce #2 after wiping the drive and doing the same thing again. Subsequent attempts have resulted in either #1 of either Chameleon or Clover.
      Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_AFTER".
       
      Clover attempts:
      I tried multiple settings and configurations, but all of them boiled down to either one of these.
       
      1 - Doesn't do anything, just hangs at "Booting from usb..."
      2 - Boots into the blue/grey mode as shown in the attached images.
      According to MrChromebox, this could be an old Tianocore DUET It doesn't detect anything (cpu frequency, ram, partitions or disks)  
      I've read pretty much every article, github readme and other types of documentation for coreboot, tianocore, clover, chameleon and MrChromebox' rw_legacy payloads and right now, I'm totally clueless as to what to try next...
       
      A few questions that came up:
      Why does chameleon hang? What is it looking for, /boot was clearly written to the disk by the Chameleon installer? What exactly is the blue/grey image? According to MrChromebox, it could be Tianocore DUET Where does it come from? Clover? The mainboard itself? Why does the blue/grey thing not detect my processor frequency or any partitions/drives? Can I use some sort of DUET bootloader to chainload Clover?  
      If you guys could answer any of them or if you have any other guesses or information as to what's happening, I'd be really happy!

      Short Version:
      I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
       
      More Detail:
      I've done a few hacks so far and this never happened. (Gigabyte z370 / 8700k / Vega, Asus z390 / i5-9600k / 1080). Now, I'm setting up a ThinkPad X1 Gen 6. (Yes, I do expect problems on laptops, but that's not the question).
       
      Mojave 10.14.4 now boots from the internal SSD. So far, so good. Here's the problem.
       
      I installed Mojave on a USB drive (for backup / rescue) and copied the entire EFI partition of my boot drive to the EFI partition on the USB drive. So... I should be able to boot from the USB drive, right? Wrong. Ran Clover installer on the USB itself. Same outcome.
       
      With F12, I can boot from the USB into Clover and select the OS on the USB. The boot sequence hangs on End Random Seed, but before the usual '++++++++' line.
      So, boot into Clover on internal boot drive, then select OS on USB. Same thing.
       
      Read the forums, I saw the posts about AptioMemoryFix, so I tried the various other drivers on the USB. No go.
       
      I haven't found the solution yet to the USB boot issue, but what puzzles me is that if I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
