Hi guys,

 

Does anyone know if there are any plans to add support to Clover for FileVault 2 encryption for boot drives? It is EFI already so that's a start, is it possible to add the password/integration functionality to the boot loader to decrypt and boot these drives?

 

Thanks

Sorry for late reply,I'm wrong.I don't using hybrid mbr,GDisk said I'm using GPT.How can clover handle GPT on legacy BIOS computer?Windows seems cannot handle Yosemite partition and USB install partition. Disk Genius see them as one MBR partition,maybe PBR can handle GPT and one partition is for MBR find PBR then clover separate one MBR partition to several GPT partitions?

Windows 7 DVD seems said it's a BIOS limitation,maybe Windows 8.1 remove this limitation?

Are you sure your disk is fully GPT ie has a “protective” mbr with a FAT32 EFI system partition?  From your post, it sounds like you have legacy Windows installed on a hybrid mbr disk - see pitfalls of hybrid mbr disk....

 

Did you follow the procedure and @avin7000's dual boot guide for legacy BIOS computers I linked to in post#6639?

 

What is the exact error you are seeing from the Windows Installer and also the output of running Diskutil list and Gdisk’s partition table scan in OSX terminal?

Eg of output if hybrid mbr found

diskutil list

If it says the MBR is “hybrid”, you won’t be able to install UEFI Windows onto the disk without replacing it with a new “protective” mbr. 

Legacy Clover provides a full (U)EFI environment for OSX and Windows via CloverEFI (clover wiki pathway A) so can handle UEFI Windows installed on a pure GPT disk.  Windows 7 or 8 X64 can be installed in UEFI mode if the USB installer is made correctly on a FAT32 partition and the computer is booted via Clover into the Windows Installer (there isn’t a legacy BIOS limitation as long as it is booted through Clover’s EFI emulation layer).

 

If you want to use the Windows DVD to install in UEFI mode, make sure to install GrubUDF-64.efi and VBoxIso9600-64.efi in EFI/CLOVER/drivers64 – refer post#25.

Does someone know what happened to projectosx?

 

There was a lot of content for clover. Even if the site may not come back, maybe someone have backups or could post some things here? For example I need some of dmazars posts for aptiofix and how to calculate right slide values.

Cannot install Windows 8 UEFI with Clover

for locating bootmgfw.efi open install.wim with 7-zip and navigate to Windows\Boot\EFI\ bootmgfw.efi ...

 

now for this error attachicon.gif IMG_20150220_011416.jpg

download Rufus  and set to GPT for UEFI Computer , FileSystem=NTFS  see screenshot post-1425204-0-19682700-1424376397_thumb.png

 

now copy  bootmgfw.efi to efi\microsoft\boot and rename cdboot.efi to cdboot.BAK

 

try to boot with bootmgfw.efi using Clover EFI , i have successfully installed this ..

 

Good luck :)

Cannot install Windows 8 UEFI with Clover

 

The error might be due to the fact that the Windows installer is detecting other drives/windows installations and wants to do a startup repair.  When installing Windows, it is good practice to temporarily disconnect all the hard drives except the target hard drive you want to install on eg in your case, if you want to install on disk0, disconnect disk1&2 leaving only disk0 and your UEFI Windows installer plugged in.

 

Re extracting bootmgfw.efi: Use 7-zip in Windows, open install.wim navigate to sources/install.wim/1/Windows/Boot/EFI/bootmgfw.efi and extract bootmgfw.efi.  Place in the /efi/microsoft/boot folder of your UEFI Windows USB (& rename cdboot.efi to cdboot.BAK as described in post#6).

 

Some legacy BIOSes won't boot from a pure GPT USB (not a problem for Clover booting of pure GPT hard drive though).  If this is the case with your system, you can either remake the USB installer with MBR instead of GPT or boot Clover installed on hard disk 0 to start bootmgfw.efi on the UEFI Windows installer.

Yes, it is using dynamic relocation from low to high addresses.

You can't edit efi file. It is binary executable. You may edit sources and compile by yourself.

Garbage I forgot to clean.

 

1. I have installed CloverGrower, but am not sure how to compile the edit that I have made. Do I place my file in the edk2/Clover/OsxLowMemFixDrv folder and then run CloverGrower.command again, or how do I compile just this one .c file?

 

2. When attempting to build the .pkg using CloverGrower for the first time I receive the following error:  (new error below, previous error bypassed)

1. I have installed CloverGrower, but am not sure how to compile the edit that I have made. Do I place my file in the edk2/Clover/OsxLowMemFixDrv folder and then run CloverGrower.command again, or how do I compile just this one .c file?

 

2. When attempting to build the .pkg using CloverGrower for the first time I receive the following error:  (new error below, previous error bypassed)

CloverGrower V6.26 Cloveria32_r3185 RELEASE  ERROR!!
Good Evening.  

Good morning!

I am not sure if CloverGrower was follow recent Clover changes. It is not my affair.

I proposed other way             #14

Hello guys!

 

 

I've been running Clover for a while and I love it a lot. The development team did a great job so far! I have a few questions, I hope you can answer some of them:

 

My laptop has no official support for UEFI, however someone managed in unlocking it and it now (mostly) works. There is an issue: if the BIOS is unlocked to support UEFI, Clover installed for UEFI and Windows is installed in UEFI-mode, the sound is not working (but if it were to be installed in legacy-mode, it would run with no problems). This is a BIOS problem, however fixing it would require reverse engineering a huge part of the BIOS so I was thinking that Clover might be able to fix this with a custom patch. Do you think this is possible? 

 

Sometimes when I press random keys at startup, a gray screen appears with a few options ("Continue", "Select language", "Boot manager", etc.). What is it? Can I disable it?

 

Thank you very much!

Does someone know what happened to projectosx?

 

There was a lot of content for clover. Even if the site may not come back, maybe someone have backups or could post some things here? For example I need some of dmazars posts for aptiofix and how to calculate right slide values.

I would also love to see the content included here somehow if that is possible. 

I like the changelog topic at projectosx. With that information I always knew if a new clover version was 'worth' testing...

I'm trying to find a way to use Clover to prevent AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext from loading because this kext triggers the system freeze when you open a HD movie prevue in the iTunes Store while using Intel HD4600 onboard graphics. With this kext removed iTunes still hangs when you open a HD movie prevue, but the OS isn't affected at all.

 

Patching the kext's Info.plist directly works. Changing:

<key>IOProviderClass</key>
<string>IOFramebuffer</string> 

to

<key>IOProviderClass</key>
<string>IOFrameXXXXXX</string> 

prevents AppleUpstreamUserClient from binding to the framebuffer so that it is unloaded. Problem solved, but I want to find a way to let Clover perform the patch so that it survives an OS X update. Removing the kext completely works too, but this has to be done manually too.

 

First I tried to use a Info.plist patch but as it isn't in the kernel cache, the patch won't be executed. Forcing it to load so that the patch is executed doesn't help. Although the kext gets loaded and the patch is executed (I verified it using the debug mode), this doesn't seem to have any effect. The kext still loads. Looks like the patched version in the cache isn't used anyway.

 

Is there any way to use Clover to remove a kext from /S/L/E or would it be possible for the developers to add it?

A feature request :

 

USB Mouse support in clover , as it would help people who dualboots too choose os incase they use a bluetooth keyboard like I do :)

 

I would do it myself if someone could point me too where I can find some docs :)

for locating bootmgfw.efi open install.wim with 7-zip and navigate to Windows\Boot\EFI\ bootmgfw.efi ...

 

now for this error attachicon.gif IMG_20150220_011416.jpg

download Rufus  and set to GPT for UEFI Computer , FileSystem=NTFS  see screenshot attachicon.gifScreenshot (1).png

 

now copy  bootmgfw.efi to efi\microsoft\boot and rename cdboot.efi to cdboot.BAK

 

try to boot with bootmgfw.efi using Clover EFI , i have successfully installed this ..

 

Good luck :)

 

 

The error might be due to the fact that the Windows installer is detecting other drives/windows installations and wants to do a startup repair.  When installing Windows, it is good practice to temporarily disconnect all the hard drives except the target hard drive you want to install on eg in your case, if you want to install on disk0, disconnect disk1&2 leaving only disk0 and your UEFI Windows installer plugged in.

 

Re extracting bootmgfw.efi: Use 7-zip in Windows, open install.wim navigate to sources/install.wim/1/Windows/Boot/EFI/bootmgfw.efi and extract bootmgfw.efi.  Place in the /efi/microsoft/boot folder of your UEFI Windows USB (& rename cdboot.efi to cdboot.BAK as described in post#6).

 

Some legacy BIOSes won't boot from a pure GPT USB (not a problem for Clover booting of pure GPT hard drive though).  If this is the case with your system, you can either remake the USB installer with MBR instead of GPT or boot Clover installed on hard disk 0 to start bootmgfw.efi on the UEFI Windows installer.

Seems like my computer is not Microsoft friendly,Windows 7 wake up from sleep,system stuck and slow,change windows 7 hdd to SATA port 1 problem solved,GDisk convert Hybrid MBR to GPT,I cannot convert  back,I'm very regret to use Windows 98 ME 2000 XP 7 8 8.1 10 and Xbox 360 Controller and Sidewinder mouse.

First of all Thanks to Slice and Clover Team for a such powerfull bootloader ..

i was suffering from sleep wake issue from Chameleon and Clover was new , tried all SSDT ,DSDT , Kext Patches etc  but not successfull but now i'm with Yosemite 10.10.2 having a second generation Sandy CPU and H61 Mobo of Gigabyte ..now i noticed it worked automatically without any efforts just need to add DSDT Patches on fly ..it started working perfectly and awesomely ..changes have noticed from Clover r3168 to 3185 

Thank you very much 

 

 

PS: i don't know where to write doing here ..

it will be better if you upload those log.

2.

Man, this error means the file is not found in the current folder. What is your current folder? I think it is edk2 as previous command work.

You must do

cd Clover

Maybe this is a feature request, or it would be OK if anyone knows any other way to do this.

 

For some of Nvidia cards, like Geforce GTX 460M, 560M..., after OSX 10.9.3, we need patch /S*/L*/E*/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/C*/P*/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/C*/Info.plist to add these two lines, or we will get blackscreen:

                             

<key>Mac-942459F5819B171B</key>
<string>none</string>

 

Anyway Clover can make this happen automatically? the Clover info.plist patching does not work for this. Wondering if there is a way to enable this automatically so we can have a vanilla working install.

For some reason, after running cloog configure, it reruns isl configure instead of directly running cloog make. Looking at buildgcc-4.9.sh, that's not what should happen, and I can't figure out why it's happening. Anyway, the make command for cloog does not get run, the cloog.x64.make... log file is empty. Then later, gcc configure can't find cloog (because it wasn't make-d and make-installed), and its configure fails trying to find cloog.

I ended up building and installing cloog manually. So I don't know what's wrong with the build script.

isl version changed from 0.12.2 when it worked to 0.14 with the problem.

Test, please,

./buildgcc4.9.sh line 37

export ISL_VERSION=${ISL_VERSION:-isl-0.14}

change to …-0.12.2

isl version changed from 0.12.2 when it worked to 0.14 with the problem.

Test, please,

./buildgcc4.9.sh line 37

export ISL_VERSION=${ISL_VERSION:-isl-0.14}

change to …-0.12.2

 

I re-ran ./buildgcc4.9.sh and got past the error, but still have a problem with:

 

bash-3.2# ./ebuild.sh --low-ebda -mc

TOOLCHAIN_DIR: /Users/MacPro/src/opt/local

Unrecognized option `--low-ebda'

 

Looking at the ebuild.sh, there is no --low-eba as an option any more.

 

 

./ebuild.sh -x64 does not seem to hit any errors, but I cannot do either of the --low-eba steps.

 

Attempting to make the package succeeds though. Good enough?

 

 

How can I now include my version of OsxLowMemFixDrv.c to be compiled instead of the stock version?

 

eidt: nm, just replacing the version in edk2/Clover/OsxLowMemFixDrv/

 

 

Thanks Slice! :)

      Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
       
      DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.
       
      Latest beta is 3.1.0b7
      Current Release Version: 3.0.4.



      The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
       
      There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.
       

       
      Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
       
      The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
      - ACPI tables.
      - Audio codec and further info.
      - Boot loaders and configuration files.
      - CPU info.
      - Device-properties.
      - Disk partition structure / info.
      - Disk sectors (hex).
      - DMI (SMBIOS).
      - EDID.
      - I/O Kit Registry.
      - EFI Memory Map.
      - EFI vars (some).
      - Kernel information
      - Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
      - Memory.
      - NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
      - SMC Keys.
      - LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
      - Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings.
      - RTC.
      - System Profiler.
      - System BIOS.
      - System Log(s).
      - Video BIOS.

      Running DarwinDumper from the command line:
      From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
       
       
       
      /DarwinDumper.app/Contents/Resources/public/bash/script.sh To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

      Install macOS 10.15 Catalina on Gigabyte P55-USB3 with Radeon RX 580 graphics card using a USB device created with the createinstallmedia command and Clover as bootloader. Instructions to install macOS 10.14 Mojave on this computer are almost identical, replacing Catalina app with Mojave, so this article is suitable for both versions of macOS. The Gigabyte P55-USB3 motherboard (and some others from the same brand with the P55 / H55 chipset) have made it easy to build a hackintosh and install macOS since 10 years ago. Although it is an old motherboard, the behavior with Mojave or Catalina is very good after changing the classic hard drive (HDD) for a solid state drive (SSD).

      Components of the hackintosh
      Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3 motherboard: P55 chipset, 1156 socket, ALC892 audio, Gigabit RTL8111D network, DDR3 RAM Intel Core i5-750 processor for socket 1156: 4 cores, 8MB cache, clock rate 2.66 GHz Fenvi FV-T919 wireless + Bluetooth card: PCI-Express, wifi is ac type, detected by macOS as Airport and Apple Bluetooth Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card: works OOB but with a few details to be considered, it has its own article.  
      Previous requirements
      Install macOS Catalina app in /Applications folder USB flash drive with at least 16GB prepared from Disk Utility with MBR partition scheme and formatted as Mac Os Plus (on older Gigabyte boards like mine, USB sticks partitioned with GUID scheme instead of MBR usually hang the system when booting) Recent version of Clover (I have used r5117) Recent versions of Lilu (at least 1.4.4) and WhateverGreen (at least 1.3.9) to fine-tune the behavior of the graphics card Recent version of RealtekRTL8111 (I have used 2.2.2) FaceSMC version 6.26-322 (newer versions disable automatic mounting of USB devices on my system).  
      Create install USB
      Run this command from Terminal (assuming the target device is called USB):
      Bash: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app
      Clover must be installed on the USB memory, I choose the following options:
      Bootloader > Install boot0af on the MBR CloverEFi > CloverEFI 64-bit SATA BIOS Drivers, 64 bit > Recommended drivers > FSInject + SMCHelper + XhciDxe BIOS Drivers, 64 bit > File System drivers > ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on selected volume Optional RC scripts > Disable sleep proxy client.  
      You have to copy 4 kexts to the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the USB device: FaceSMC 6.26-322, Lilu 1.4.4, WhateverGreen 1.3.9 and RealtekRTL8111 2.2.2. Regarding the config.plist file, the most significant is:
      Boot > kext-dev-mode = 1 in Boot arguments GUI > Theme embedded, EmbeddedThemeType Dark, Screen Resolution 1920x1080, Preboot in Hide Volume Graphics > blank, nothing is checked except if foxbox solution is used to have more than 2 connectors enabled RT Variables > 0x28 in BooterConfig and 0x67 in CsrActiveConfig SMBios > iMac14,2 Sytem Parameters> Yes in Inject Kexts and check Inject System ID.  
      Install macOS Catalina

      Boot from the USB device and choose Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina. The installation program runs until the PC restarts. Here choose Install macOS from HDD (the name of the volume you are installing macOS on). With RX 580 graphics card, the screen goes black in this second phase of the installation, it is a phase in which the user has nothing to do until the PC is restarted so you can let it work until the Clover menu again. You have to choose Boot macOS from HDDto boot the installed system from the hard disk, the screen is recovered and you can configure the account and the initial options. From this moment the screen works fine.

      In summary:
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from HDD > black screen Boot from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from HDD > screen works fine.  
      Install Clover and kexts on the hard drive

      Clover needs to be installed on the disk where we just installed macOS. Options are the same as when installing it on the USB memory. You also have to copy the 4 kexts (FaceSMC 6.26-322, Lilu 1.4.4, WhateverGreen 1.3.9 and RealtekRTL8111 2.2.2) into the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder on the EFI partition of the disk. And review the config.plist file remembering the comments for the USB.

      If everything goes well, the computer starts from the hard disk with a running copy of macOS Catalina.

      Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card on macOS High Sierra (as of 10.13.6), Mojave and Catalina on the P55-USB3 board: excellent performance with acceleration (Metal) OOB, no need for drivers (kexts), with 3 drawbacks, one has to do with the boot of the operating system (a solution is proposed), another with the number of rear connectors enabled (a solution is proposed) and another that only affects to one phase of the Mojave or Catalina installation (without clear solution for now).

      I have placed the XFX AMD Radeon RX-580 P8DFD6 8GB Triple X Edition GDDR5, 256BIT, DVI + HDMI + 3DP graphics card on a 10 year old motherboard (Gigabyte P55-USB3) in order to update the hackintosh to 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina because the card that I have used in past years, Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 1GB, has stopped working after 10.13.6 High Sierra since this was the last version for which Nvidia published the alternate web drivers that were necessary for the card to work well with graphic acceleration.

      The new RX 580 card needs considerably more space than the old one although it fits perfectly in an ATX case, and requires an additional power connector. It has 2 big fans that most of the time are stopped, at least in my case. In macOS it works perfectly, even with Metal acceleration, without additional drivers and without extra settings in Clover. But it has drawbacks that I comment below.

      Alterations during startup

      During the boot of the operating system, when the screen goes from the basic driver to the AMD driver, 2 artifacts appear randomly, they are very short in duration (from one to a few seconds):
      Very short flashing white screen that may or may not be accompanied by purple lines The fans runs for a few seconds (the noise is clearly audible). This behavior is solved with the installation of 2 kexts, Lilu and WhateverGreen. Lilu is an extension created by acidantheraand vit9696 among others whose function is to help to patch kexts, processes and libraries during macOS boot. It is accompanied by specific plugins for the task required, for example WhateverGreen that injects necessary patches for certain AMD, Intel and Nvidia graphics cards. It is mandatory to have both extensions together, one of them separately does not correct the problem.
      I have installed Lilu 1.4.4 and WhateverGreen 1.3.9 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the EFI partition and artifacts have disappeared. Remember that these 2 extensions are not necessary for the card to work properly, if you tolerate those very brief distortions of the screen or the noise of the fans running for a few seconds, you can live without Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Note: authors recommend that when using Lilu and WhateverGreen with Radeon cards, NO graphic settings have to be added to Clover (Inject ATI, etc.).

      Note: these alterations, especially the brief white screen and less frequently purple lines and fan noise, are also seen in Windows and some real Macs with the same card.

      Alteration during macOS installation

      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from MacintoshHD > black screen
      Booting from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from MacintoshHD > screen works fine.

      In the first and third stages, screen works fine. In the second stage the screen goes black although the installation continues. The user has nothing to do at this moment so you can leave the PC working until the Clover menu is shown again, the screen is recovered, the initial account options can be configured and you can enter into the newly installed system with correct resolution and acceleration.
      This behavior is not corrected even by placing Lilu and WhateverGreen into the USB device. At least in my case I have not found a solution for it. Yo can install macOS perfectly with that drawback of not seeing how it progresses during the second phase of the installation.

      Only 2 connectors of the 5 available work

      This card has 3 Display Port (DP) ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 DVI port. In my case, only 2 DP work, those that are further from the HDMI connector. It is enough if you use a single monitor or 2 monitors that can be connected by DP. But if you want to have 3 or more connected devices or some of them only have HDMI, it is necessary to enable the 5 connectors or at least 4 of them since the DVI is obsolete and does not allow resolutions as high as DP and HDMI.
      User foxbox has proposed a solution in a thread titled [Solved] Sapphire RX 580 Nitro + SE | black screen on HDMI and DVI. Must inject from Clover a modification to the Orinoco framebuffer (which is used in the RX 580 card) so that the 5 connectors lack a fixedly assigned address and, instead, receive it dynamically. This change is made from the KextsToPatch section of Clover. Read the post from foxbox.
      This has to be accompanied by 3 changes in the Graphics section of Clover: Orinoco in FB Name / Inject ATI / 5 in Video Ports. I have tested this solution in macOS Catalina and it effectively enables the 5 ports of the card but, since I only use 1 monitor, I have removed it and I am with Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Bonjour,
       
      Je rencontre un souci depuis la dernière maj supplémentaire catalina 10.15.4, même chose pour la 10.15.5 aujourd'hui : après le début de l'update, lorsque le pc redémarre, je ne vois pas le volume d'installation dans les volumes de l'écran de boot clover (v5118). j'ai juste Preboot dans les volumes cachés au démarrage, et j'ai essayé de les afficher, le préboot de l'install apparait bien mais le boot n'aboutit jamais par ce biais. du coup, je suis bloqué en 10.15.4. Auriez-vous une idée du problème ?

      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. EFI_HZ550.zip
