Clover is absolutely not faster than Chameleon in legacy mode, that's a joke lol

 

But in UEFI it is definitely faster. I'm enjoying it, glad I decided to upgrade my BIOS and glad I stuck with Clover and figured it all out.

Sure?

I timed the boot time with Chameleon and clover and clover and definitely faster than Chameleon, Chameleon is a boot obsolete now.
 
Dev  sorry for this OT.

Guys, quick question: how do I make the sound (I've got a Realtek ALC892 chipset) work in Yosemite, using Clover as bootloader? Cause, I tried using M u l t i B e a s t  to install it (damn, I can't even say the name of the software here. Jeez! I'm not asking for support for it, but I need to make a reference to it so that people would understand what I mean!).  And it didn't work. Apparently it requires Chameleon to be installed. And I don't wanna do that cause Chameleon is still very much work in progress when it comes to Yosemite and I couldn't make it load it in my previous tries. Anyway...so, does anyone have any idea how to do that? Also, anyone else has a RTL8111 chipset for Ethernet? Did you get it working with Yosemite? Cause I didn't... I tried the same kext (the universal RTL81xx. kext made by Lnx2Mac, which works perfectly with Mavericks) and it doesn't work with Yosemite (I've got a PPPOE internet connection and it wouldn't let me configure it.)

 

try this:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/297207-voodoohda-285-for-mavericks-slice-anv-signed/

 

I used the Lnx2Mac drivers and it worked perfectly.  Have same chip as you.  Not sure where to go with that...

Hey,

Sound Realtek ALC892 is very good known for us. Two way to make it working

1. Search for patched AppleHDA for your system version.

2. Install VoodooHDA + AppleHDADisabler. See my signature

No matter what bootloader did you use.

 

LAN Realtek RTL8111. Lnx2Mac driver is wrong as well as official driver from Realtek site. My Realtek LAN driver works for my 8111F card.

See my signature.

Hey man

 

So I got home and tried your Realtek kext. But I must have done something wrong (or didn't do something) cause it still wouldn't let me add a PPPOE connection.

What I did:

1. copy-paste R1000.kext into S/L/E

2. open terminal and input the following command to repair permissions:

diskutil repairPermissions /

3. reboot

 

I didn't get to try the audio kext yet cause I thought I'd better start one step at a time. So...did I do something wrong?

Hey Slice, clover boot loader brings a lot of artifacts on HD3000. Never happened with other boot loader. Would you mind helping?

 

Yes, it is already resolved. Add slide=0 to boot-args

	<key>Boot</key>
	<dict>
		<key>Arguments</key>
		<string>-v slide=0</string>

Why? Mistique. But works.

If you'll copy by command line in terminal it will be more reliable

sudo -s
cp -r -v ~/Downloads/RealtekR1000SL.kext /S*/L*/Ex*/

Then you can drag a cache to trash. Or by command

rm -r -v /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/*

AND NO REPAIR PERMISIIONS !!! They are good with these commands.

No comment  magnifico but maybe you will have to read what others user say about that and then say the word "trust me" easy.

 

 

I use clover with legacy bios..

 

I use it instead of chameleon since two weeks..

 

I can say that they are quite the same in boot time..but clover is a bit faster..

All I know is Clover took about 30 seconds to reach GUI, and Chameleon took about 3-4 seconds. Don't matter anymore tho lol I'm on UEFI

Fom power up to GUI for me are circa 5-6 sec..

 

2 seconds after the normal logo of the mobo and normal writing of powering up my pc

 

 

For a complete boot...to desktop:

 

chameleon : 30-32 sec

 

clover : 28-29 sec

 

5 second are used before clover/chamelon boot partition XD

Try this one, works for me (RealtekRTL81xxx.kext).  It's in the 10.10 kexts folder inside Clover:   http://puu.sh/9wtUM/02ce8084e1.zip

 I got it. I'll try it tomorrow, most likely, since I've already got it working now. :D

 

sudo -s
cp -r -v ~/Downloads/RealtekR1000SL.kext /S*/L*/Ex*/

Well...I've got news. Good news. I'm posting this from Safari, in Yosemite. You know that that means, right? It worked!

I tried Slice's version of Ethernet driver first, and it worked. My system was all messed up (I replaced some other kexts by mistake yesterday and apparently even with the right kext, my Ethernet card wouldn't be recognized). So I reinstalled Yosemite, from scratch. And now it works! Thanks a lot, guys. You're awesome! :)

 

So one more thing to install. And that's audio.

 

Where exactly should I put: VoodooHDA.kext (this one I suppose it should go into S/L/E , right?), VoodooHDA.prefPane, VoodooHDASettingsLoader.app and the "getdump" file?

 

Do I need to run some special commends to get it working?

 

I mean, I suppose I should clear the cache after sending the kext into S/L/E. But what about the other ones?

 

UPDATE: I got sound working as well (VoodooHDA 2.8.5)! YAY!

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

 

Now flash player needs to be updated as well. Since trying to watch a Youtube video, the PC will freeze reboot (kind of annoying). But I guess I can listen to music form my computer, rather than Youtube. Plus, that has nothing to do with Clover.

Again, thank you very much for your help, guys. :)

Dude... I'm using UEFI now. My boot time is amazing. I have no issues. In legacy, the boot time was crazy slow. I have no idea why this is argument, but I'm stepping away from it now. Have fun arguing with yourself.

I'm trying to get help with an actual issue I'm having and your drowning it out with all this ranting and raving about how Clover is faster.

This is debug.log from UEFI boot and this is fast

4:039  0:006  GUI ready

I was asking a report with delays to see when it happens.

 

See, I knew this was gonna happen.  I'm not complaining about boot times!!  This guy just basically buried my question with his arguments about speed.  I'm perfectly content with my boot time right now using UEFI. 

 

My issue is that ever since I upgraded my BIOS to UEFI, and started booting Clover off my EFI partition, I can no longer use the Startup Disk preference pane.  I'm troubleshooting it now but not getting anywhere.  I thought that's why you asked me for logs and darwin dump...

Is your last booted OSX volume being remembered as well?  In Yosemite, there have been issues reported with Clover's NVRAM.plist not being saved - see this discussion for some workarounds.

 

Both Startup Disk Preference Pane & Last Booted Volume need a working NVRAM....

It's not working from either Mavs or Yosemite. I think @snatch has helped me identify some underlying issues via DM. I'll let u guys know if I get it sorted out, or come back for more help if it doesn't!!! Thanks.

I think the problem is resolved with scripts set in 2721 package.

Have you tried removing EmuVariableUefi-64.efi ?

 

I've done it with my Gigabyte motherboard and it works.

My iMessage didn't work until I added that in.  Does your iMessage work?

Well, I deleted it, and now there's no reading for boot device in nvram at all lol 

ADHD-myHack-Pro:~ dmeister08$ nvram -p
bluetoothActiveControllerInfo	uMa%04%00%00%000%16%1a%00%02v*o%fb
EFIBluetoothDelay	%b8%0b
fmm-computer-name	ADHD myHack Pro
ADHD-myHack-Pro:~ dmeister08$ 

What now?   :)

 

*********************************

Alright, I deleted my prior post because I just learned that I'm looking at UUID's in the wrong place.  Discovered that the UUID that is being saved in the nvram.plist does actually correspond to my OSX partition, it just never changes.  Neither Mavs or Yosemite will boot back and forth to each other via the Startup Disk prefpane, and both have the same issue with the nvram.plist.

      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 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.

      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=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/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.
