Hi!

 

I'm using Clover on Yosemite DP2 and I have a few problems.

 

First, I've generated a MacBookPro6,2 profile using Clover Configurator but in System Report I don't see the 1.58f17 SMC version. Instead there is a 1.32f8 key that belongs to a MacBook5,1.

 

Second. System Report is showing a 2.13 GHz bus speed. I don't know if this is correct but I think it should show the "Processor Interconnect Speed" (QPI, wich is 4,8 GT/s). FIXED:

<key>QPI</key>
<string>4800</string>
Any help is welcome, regards and sorry my english!

 

 

SMC versions are hardcoded in Clover so it will need to be updated by the devs or yourself if you compile your own (rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/platformdata.c). Are these the latest versions?

 

 

@tluck: I can boot to Yosemite's Recovery partition just fine with Clover. Do you inject FakeSMC while booting to it?

 

I want to share my progress on this.

 

I was experimenting with Clover's source code. More specifically with Platform.h and platformdata.c files.

 

I add this line to Platform.h under typedef enum:

    MacBookPro62,
And in platformdata.c I add this lines, always in the same position under their respective keys:

  "MBP61.88Z.0057.B0F.1112091028",
  "Mac-F22586C8", 
  "12/09/11", 
  "MacBookPro6,2",
  "MacBookPro",
  "1.0",
  "CK1093T7AGW",
  "MacBook-Aluminum",
  "NA",
  {0x01, 0x58, 0x0F, 0, 0, 0x17},
  0x7b002,
    case MacBookPro62:
*Under AppleFirmwareVersion, AppleBoardID, AppleReleaseDate, AppleProductName, AppleFamilies, AppleSystemVersion, AppleSerialNumber, AppleChassisAsset, SmcPlatform, SmcRevision, SmcConfig and SetDMISettingsForModel respectively. I think when a key is missing from SMBIOS in config.plist, Clover takes it from here. The only info I couldn't find for MacBookPro6,2 were "SmcPlatform" and "SmcConfig" so I've taken it from MacBookPro5,1.

 

Then I builded a pkg, installed Clover and now is recognizing the 1.58f17 revision in System Report. I'm totally noob in programming/coding but I got it using Xcode and CloverGrower.

 

Hope this can help. Thanks to Maniac10 for show me the way.

 

That's it! Regards!

Hi, Slice and the Clover team!

 

I think I need some help with my 1201n Atom netbook: I cannot boot with any version of Clover, cannot even get to the Clover menu. As soon as the system finishes posting, it gets stuck with a black screen with a blinking cursor, just like it would if no bootable disk was being found. I'm using CloverEFI (that is, legacy, not UEFI) installed on a FAT-formated 4GB USB stick.

 

Any help would be much appreciated. If needed, I can post my config.plist and a list of the efi drivers I'm using - let me know.

 

All the best!

P.S.: I redid the installer from scratch, same issue. This time using an 8 GB MBR/HFS+ USB disk with a 10.9.2 installer. Don't know why I can't even get to the boot menu, so I can get any debug info. Really lost now.


P.P.S.: pressing F2 won't sabe the preboot.log in /EFI/Clover/misc!

 

P.P.P.S.: Adding the boot7 file dmazar posted here            #943             didn't change a thing!

 

P.P.P.P.S.: Well, my hardware must be suffering serious incompatibility issues: following the instructions here FAQ took me nowhere, perhaps because it's really not a black screen, but a black screen with a blinking cursor. Even the dreaded "7" described here FAQ doesn't appear!

In fact, not exactly with it: he's developing a new patch for on-the-fly kernel patching for Atom CPU. The issues I'm experiencing are quite old and are with Clover itself: I never really got it to run with my 1201N - had a previous Atom netbook and it was also hard as hell to get it running (see the post from dmazar I linked). 

 

Now, I decided to create a DMG from my USB installer, reformat it as GUID (it was MBR) and then restore the DMG to the newly created GPT volume. Then install Clover - if needed, since it should perhaps already be there when I restore the DMG - and try all over again. Will report soon.

 

All the best!


P.S.: It worked!

 

This time I selected Install boot0af in MBR (was using boot0ss before) and CloverEFI 32-bits. Don't know which one worked, or if both are needed.

Did you try choosing BiosBlockIO instead of SATA in the installer?

Yes, but I already solved it (see             #4762            ): it was happening because I was choosing boots0ss. Just changed to boot0af and now everything's fine: I can even use BiosBlockIO now (I was using CloverEFI 32-bit, since I was unsure of what had solved my issue, but it wouldn't see my internal disks).

 

All the best!

Hey guys

 

Did any of you try a clean install of DP2 with Clover? Does Messages still work? I'm trying to figure out if I did something wrong or...it really doesn't work anymore.

@arsadu - i have done both installations of DP2 on clover 2721 - a clean install and then one on top of 10.9.3. iMessage (and iCloud) works for me both cases. i did get some weird extra stuff in my recovery HD both times - but i just removed the extra folders there and then things worked as expected. Note: i personally don't like the logical partition style of disk management the installer created from DP2 so i just reverted to physical partition.

Thanks, man. UEFI or legacy installation of Clover? it might be important. I don't remember having troubles in DP1. But I don't seem to be able to login to Messages anymore, not even with a clean installation of the OS. It says it cannot be activated...try again later. Or something similar. I always check the checkbox for Emu...something something in Clover upon installation, which for as far as I know is responsible for the functionality of Messages. Anyway...I'm trying DP2, clean install again. If i still have troubles, I'll try reverting to DP1, and report my findings. Thanks again. :)

 

UPDATE: Ok...I'm not sure it's from DP2 anymore... I still have this issue, even after a clean install of DP1.

But I've got something else that's weird. I've got two EFI partitions. One somewhere on my HDD...though none of the boot partitions seems to have it, but I can boot from BIOS, and the other one on my pen drive, which is intended. Now...How do I remove the other one? Where is it located?

UPDATE2: Nevermind. I got it. :D

Hi, a help from you, you who are more experienced.

I have the problem for artifacts with Intel HD3000 integrated in my laptop... the problem occurs with both the Mavericks and Yosemite.

 

I have selected various combinations - EDID and configuration in the Clover.

I have not solved the problem.

 

Thanks to all for your help

Clover rocks!!!!

 

As if you guys didn't know this already :hysterical::D.

 

One of the only drawbacks with using Clover on older legacy BIOS machines is the long delay to arriving at the Clover GUI - on my desktop GA-P55aUD3 it was approx 15-16secs using the Standard CloverEFi 64-bits SATA.  On a whim, I decided to install with the BiosBlockIO option ....

 

post-846696-0-70754200-1403501286_thumb.png

 

Notice the time taken to arrive at the GUI (from boot.log) is now only 4.6secs!!!  Now hardly any difference compared to a UEFI boot.

 

Thanks Slice and the Clover developers !!!! :thumbsup_anim: :thumbsup_anim: :thumbsup_anim:

 

Word of caution from the Clover Wiki however: depending on the computer's BIOS "it not always works, for instance with the Dell Inspiron 1525."

Make sure you have a boot-able Clover USB (with standard boot files) handy before changing your Clover installation on your hard drive :) .

Guys, I can't use Messages anymore... And I erased the EFI partition on my HDD (yes, I know, stupid thing to do) and now, as you probably can imagine, i can't boot from HDD anymore. I can still use the EFI partition on my USB stick to boot Yosemite or Mavericks... But anyway. The thing is that, even if booting from the USB, my Messages (iMessage) app doesn't connect anymore. Yes, anymore. It worked when I first installed Yosemite, and I'm pretty sure I selected the exact same things in Clover that I did when I first installed it. I'm using UEFI bios (and of course, UEFI options in Clover). And no, it doesn't seem to make any difference if it's DP1 or DP2. Both clean installations (minus the EFI partition, I guess).

So my question is: what should I do to have iMessages working again? Should I recreate the EFI partition (Clover alone doesn't seem to create it, just uses it if it finds it). Should I just create a new partition and format it as FAT32 and name it to EFI? How exactly does this work? Isn't that supposed to be hidden?

 

I thought that when I format my USB stick, the EFI partition is also wiped. Now I'm not so sure anymore... So what exactly is it stored in there? Can some information that might have been left on the EFI partition affect the functionality of the iMessage app? It seems to be the same version (at least the same version number) in both DP1 and DP2.

 

Thanks so much for your help, guys.

Hi all !

 

Just a little thing here, how i can get rid of this little graphic glitch ? (distorted spinning wheel at boot) even if you boot with -v you will have distorted commende lines.. when i were on chameleon this glitch was not happened; resolution is 1366x768.

 

But if i switch to a stretched theme (1024x768) the spinning wheel will be displayed correctly, but the theme and the apple logo will be stretched then horribly ugly..

 

http://cl.ly/image/0...21/IMG_0669.JPG

 

here is a picture for when you boot on verbose mode : http://cl.ly/image/0o3l0R3l1H36

 

its only happening on booting, when you shut down / restart the pc, the spinning wheel is normale here is a picture : http://cl.ly/image/3j23191h2O15

 

Best regard ! Sorry for bad english.

How is it possible for someone to help you if you are telling your hardware or post any log?

 

Forgive my lack of knowledge, iam new on hackintosh world, but i dont know what log i can post for that.. :)

What about hardware? For as far as we can tell from your pictures, it's a HP laptop. But that's about it. Model number? Some specs like: Motherboard, Video card, CPU, RAM? You can find all that on manufacturer's product pages, if you don't know them already. Or Google search for the model and find out more. In Linux there is a command for finding out your hardware information: lshw (that's LSHW, or, to be easier to remember LiSt HardWare). You can try that on Mac as well. Though we don't need everything that command will output.  But alexanderq is right. So far, you are the only one with this issue (or at least the first one I know). Which means that something is specific to your hardware. So, in order to be able to at least guess what can be wrong with that, we need to know some hardware details like the ones I mentioned above.

I think its related to theme on clover, or clover itself, cause when i was on chameleon the issue was not heppend

 

There is my hardware details : HP ProBook 4540s H0W34ES, Intel Core i3-3110M, BIOS F.41: Dual Boot : OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 / Windows 8.1 Professional

 

Also, i have runed the lspci -nn commande on linux. Note that the wifi card was replaced with an atheros 9280 :)

Looks like a video card issue to me. There is not much performance you can expect from the onboard video chipsets in general. And this is no exception. If the Clover screen looks ok, then it's most likely the kexts. Did you try to use Hackintosh Vietnam Tool (v 1.7.1) or M u l t i B e a s t (v 6.3) to install the appropriate kexts for your video card? If not, I recommend you to do it. Again, if Clover looks ok (the screen where you select which partition to load) when you boot from it, then it's most likely not Clover's fault. And from as far as I can tell, your problem happens after you exit Clover and enter the OS. So this is where I would start.

Yes, its happen just when you exit Clover screen, i dont think its a graphic card problem cause i dont have issues with that, and dont have artefact or glitches.. Everything look ok, even the Clover screen :)

Hello, I hope someone can help!

 

I'm running latest Clover UEFI. Since updating to 10.9.3 booting hangs at the gray Apple screen. -v indicates hang at:

 

vm swap subsystem is on

flow_divert_kch_disconnect (0): disconnecting group 1

 

The result is the same booting with -x -v. I can however boot using a Chameleon USB stick, but it only boots with the -v flag.

 

Thank you!

Did you use Clover before? Did you use Chameleon before? If you used Chameleon before, did you try uninstalling it?

Yes, its happen just when you exit Clover screen, i dont think its a graphic card problem cause i dont have issues with that, and dont have artefact or glitches.. Everything look ok, even the Clover screen :)

So the OS looks ok, the Clover screen looks ok, but when it exists Clover and tries to load the OS, you get issues? Does this happen with the default theme?

      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - 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):

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.7 beta 5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      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)
      Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!

      Hi.
      I apologize in advance if I didn't post in the right category and if my title and description aren't specific enough :c
       
      My config in a nutshell:
      CPU: i7 5820k GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3GB RAM: 16 GB MOBO: MSI X99 SLI PLUS I attached RunMe output with all the details of my built.
       
      Some background:
      I have my Hackintosh for about half a year. That time I managed to make it works and fix major issues, but some of them left unresolved since then and I ignored them until now.
      I use my Hackintosh for Adobe projects (PR, AE, PS, IL, AU and a lot more) - most of them connected with video editing of course browsing with Chrome and other small tasks.
       
      Problems:
      Random restarts - this is the biggest one. I'm starting to work on bigger and bigger projects and at this time I think I can't allow this to happen that often. In the past, they happened like once a day or a couple of times a week. However, now it's just frustrating when it happens even 5 or more times a day. I've tried to observe and find out what can be the cause but I haven't managed to find any connections. I thought it happens when Premiere or another app is using GPU, but I haven't seen increased usage when it restarts. I think that it can be connected with GPU, memory or PSU or... meh, anything else. I don't have resources to check if it'll work with other components. There should be some fix for this. I will really appreciate any help with this :c Restart instead of shutdown & sleep doesn't work. I've tried to look through some Google results for this and tried many solutions (as you can see in attached Clover folder), but I think the right one for many of these issues is to make my own DSDT. Glitches, freezes and other things while encoding a video. It happens very often when I try to do this. Maybe it is an issue with GPU or (hopefully) only with GPU drivers which can be fixed with some patch. Today my headphones stopped working. I have a multi-output device configured in the Audio MIDI Setup app which includes my headphones (HyperX Cloud via USB) and Soundflowerbed virtual audio device for capturing system audio. Today while I was trying (like 15 times) to encode a video in Media Encoder in the background and watch video on YouTube I stopped hearing anything from my system. Of course, it restarted a couple of times as always, but even this didn't solve this. If I plug them directly with mini jack (not via USB Soundcard which was in the box and which I always used) in the front IO or the back I only hear some loud noise It takes EX-Fat formatted volumes a few minutes to mount after each restart. I found a workaround to format it with NTFS since I have Tuxera installed and I will reformat these volumes when I will find time for this, but maybe there is some fix for this. GPU is a little bit hot. HW Monitor shows it is only 45-55 degrees, but for my hand is a little bit hot, idk. Also related to GPU - glitch after POST but before entering Clover boot menu. It is a black screen with little white squared glitches for a few seconds. Maybe it indicates the GPU drivers are loading, but maybe it shouldn't be like this. And if I can ask about that - I can't make all applications hide on startup. I, obviously, have "Hide" checkbox checked on every login item in settings, but it doesn't work, none of the apps is hidden in the dock. Is there a way to fix this? Also a small but annoying problem - I can't turn off permanently Mojave update notification (since I tried to install it, and I had to reverse to High Sierra because I had a black screen and I didn't have time for repairing all of them. Tags are not working in Finder - every time I tag a file or folder and make a change in it (for example save a text file) the tag disappears.  
      So, with knowing all of that, is there a way to make a proper DSDT file for my Hackintosh? I tried to look through some guides on how to make it but I think I reached my abilities to understand how Mac OS works and what all of these things are, so I'm asking you guys politely, would someone like to help me? At least with these random restarts? :/
      I really begin to think that I'm a newbie in configuring all of that Clover things - even after what I managed to do with my PC. Help me, pleease... :c
       
      If you have any questions post it below, I will really appreciate any help <3

      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:
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: GPT
      > boot0: doneboot1: /boot       <- Exactly like that, no line break in between
      (hangs; pressing power button once shuts down)
       
      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?
