First that I see that you have Phoenix EFI. This is EFI implementation that differ from UEFI so we may propose some incompatibilities.

This procedure InstallConfigurationTable comes from the BIOS.

I may propose you to do legacy Clover boot to compare if it will be OK.

 

Thank you for the reply. 

 

To use legacy boot what is the procedure? And how do I know clover is booting with legacy mode?

 

I've enabled CSM in bios.  Then installed CLOVER to a MBR formatted usb stick to a 200 MB fat32 partition.  I left "UEFI booting only" deselected and only selected "install boot0af in MBR" and the bluemac theme.   The rest of the USB stick is a hfs+ partition where I used createinstallmedia to copy the yosemite installer. 

 

Did I miss anything?

I would like to create a screenshot of Clover Version 2988.

 

I have read with F10 you can get a screenshot when booting from Clover (ie BEFORE the selection of the partition I wish to boot)

create a screenshot. I can but the image will not find in the EFI partition and Clover folder.

 

Where is the stored Scrennshot?

 

Thank you for this information

EFI partition must be formatted to FAT32 to Clover has write access. Not HFS+ as you probably have.

BIOS set to boot from this hard drive. Not UEFI just boot from hard drive.

This hard drive must have installed

boot0xxx into sector 0

boot1xxx into sector 1 of a partition where the Clover installed

boot file in the root of the partition

EFI folder in the partition.

Sorry but why I should explain these axioms of booting process?

Yes I agree it's a newbie question.  I asked because after several attempts to boot into legacy, I have not been successful and wanted to know if I was missing something obvious.   

 

After I asked, I tried the same USB drive on another computer and it successfully booted legacy without any issue.  I believe the firmware on my laptop defaults to UEFI over legacy if given a choice.  Even with CSM enabled the boot menu only gives one choice even if the drive supports both UEFI and legacy.  

 

So to answer your original question, I cannot be sure if legacy clover would work on this laptop. Although considering chameleon works, I suspect clover legacy would too.

 

Is there anyway to add support for phoenix uefi?  I'd be happy to compile and test.

Chameleon is legacy boot. Always. So it means there is legacy boot on your computer else you can't start chameleon. Clover started as legacy exactly same way as chameleon. If you can start chameleon then you can start legacy clover. Is it clear now?

 

up

down?

what is plist with "inactive entries"? I don't know such text files.

config.plist can be opened by TextEdit as usual text file. Forget crappy "Clover Configurator"!

Yes I understand.

 

My laptop defaults to UEFI if it sees a drive supports both.  I am not given a choice.  Is there a way to install Clover with ONLY legacy?   

 

 

EDIT:  I deleted /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi and that allowed me to force legacy boot.  I'm sure of this because I can see the "bf1: init"  screen which is the PBR/stage 1 bootloader.  

 

However, after the stage1 bootloader, I get the menu with 5 choices with "continue" as the first option.   In your FAQ this means the /EFI/CLOVER/CLOVERX64.efi file cannot be found.  But I'm sure it's there as it boots fine on my desktop computer.

It boots fine on any desktop machine.

Meanwhile, you should not see "bf1: init" if this is full clover installation because boot1f32 provided with clover keep silence.

 

If your hdd partitionned as GPT then do not set any partition active and use boot0af as first mbr sector.

Slice, i use plist editor pro and textwrangler. About CC, yes i don't trust that kind of program that almost do the cook and the coffee.

 

I have my SMBIOS in config.plist set as MacPro5,1 (family,model,serial,etc,.) ; despite it worked well with clover r2999 and 3050 , with r3201 it does not work and clover inject iMac SMBIOS (system profiler). It's a bit frustrating ; furthermore with r3201, i lost my fullHD resolution at bootscreen, windows discs reappears at bootscreen too and trim patch does not work anymore. Ouch!

I can force the output if I partition as fat16 since 1f32 only supports fat32.  I get an error message, but at least I know it's trying to boot legacy. 

 

If I delete /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.efi to force legacy boot.  I run into this screen.

Hey slice and others, 

 

can you _PLEASE_ add the following information to your Clover online documentation:

 

 

- Some UEFI boards like (my) Asus-B85M-G only support booting from the very first partition on a GPT formatted drive!  So if you have an EFI partition first, and you want to boot from an HFS+ partition after the first EFI partition (2+), you will need to write the boot1h2 partition boot block to the first EFI-partition!   So boot1h2 is capable of booting another partition than it is installed on. In my case, my first partition is EFI formatted with FAT32, using boot1h2 (yes believe it or not). This EFI partition has no contents, it is empty! The second partition is the Boot partition, formatted with HFS+ and clover installed on it. The first EFI partition must be also marked as active!  I use boot0ss.

 

Guys, please extract the information from this and add it to your docs, since this is the only way with my main board to boot from a GPT formatted drive. I tested all combinations for hours.

 

So, the extract is:

 

Some UEFI boards will support partition boot from the first partition only, if the drive is formatted with GPT. This first partition is usually the EFI partition, which can be empty and formatted with any format (HFS+ / FAT32 or other). Writing boot1h2 to the first (EFI) partition enables the computer to load clover from another partition after the first partition.

Hello everyone !!!

I have a problem, I Clover V3200 installed on my machine and I can not make partition 1 be the principal to be used;
I tried custom UUID, Default Volume and nothing,
every time restarts with another partition other than the one I want !!
Furthermore it does not automatically mount the EFI partition !!
Follow my Config.plist

Did you try to restart with the Main Drive?

Thats working good for me to Mount EFI and Boot always to the same Volume

Yes thats right if you Restart with the Select disk, Clover  Recognize the disk  :yes:

And better the EFI is Mount if you are select your preferance on Clover prefpane

 

Edit **Clover and Yosemite is on Symbiose

ok + does not work that part to assemble and choose EFI partition
You saw the Config.plist I sent?

 

And what should I change for the shares to be permanent?

Post your Clover boot.log (found in /Library/Logs/CloverEFI or the output of bdmesg in terminal).

 

Maybe Clover is reading the wrong config.plist eg you have installed Clover in more than one place?  You can also try resetting your NVRAM in terminal:

sudo rm /nvram.plist
sudo nvram -c

The boot.log should show which config.plist is being used eg for my desktop....

Using OEM config.plist at path: EFI\CLOVER\OEM\P55A-UD3\config.plist

and whether it finds the default boot volume...
