They are probably not in kernelcache yet since they are not used. Try booting with blocking kernelcache (space on OSX icon in Clover and then choose blocking cache option). If this works, then you need to rebuild kernel cache with:

> sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

 

If all is ok, you can then reboot normally (with kernelcache) and patching will work.

 

don't work, either.

2 hours after starting and many reboots later I finally managed to get Clover UI to show up \o/

 

It's slick, I like it :)

 

For some reason doing F12 Boot to select the USB stick as boot device was utterly failing (at boot it just kept skipping directly to the Chameleon install on the HD). Despite the fact that I've always done that before when testing chameleon from a USB stick. Some oddity of my mobo and FAT32 format perhaps? No idea.

 

What finally worked was going into BIOS and setting USB as first in boot device priority, before HD or CD.

 

Successfully booted into my test OSX install -- which promptly spontaneously rebooted after about a minute, but hey it's a start, now to working on all the dsdt fixes etc.

 

Bottom line: if you've come across this post because you're failing to even reach the Clover UI during a legacy BIOS boot, try changing the BIOS boot device priority settings.

How would I change graphics card model displayed in SysProfiler?

 

With Chameleon it was correctly identified as Radeon HD6850M

 

With Clover its reported as Radeon HD 5770 series

 

The card is working as intended, it's just a cosmetic issue.

 

 

Also I got a problem with AICPM.kext

 

Before switching to Clover it worked fine, but now it's failing to load with the following messages in console:

 

19.03.13 21:18:28,000 kernel[0]: kxld[com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement]: The following symbols are unresolved for this kext:
19.03.13 21:18:28,000 kernel[0]: kxld[com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement]: _pm_init_lock
19.03.13 21:18:28,000 kernel[0]: Can't load kext com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement - link failed.
19.03.13 21:18:28,000 kernel[0]: Failed to load executable for kext com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.
19.03.13 21:18:28,000 kernel[0]: Kext com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement failed to load (0xdc008016).
19.03.13 21:18:28,000 kernel[0]: Failed to load kext com.apple.driver.AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement (error 0xdc008016).

 

Another cosmetic problem is RAM:

 

My laptop has 4 memory slots where 1 and 3 are equipped with a 4GB module each.

All 8GB are detected correctly by the system.

But in About this Mac/SysProfiler only the first 2 slots are shown

 

I use MacBook Pro 8,3 as system identifier

I did this yesterday because my system was still mac mini server 6,2 profile for my sysytem to be fully functional.

 

I followed guide on youtube that showed me how to edit all my specs, its very easy. also put picture of my case where the mac mini pic was

and changed name to Mac Pro Early 2013.

Hello All,

 

I have been trying to have Clover simply launch on my FX-8350, Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5, ATI FirePro v4900. I have enabled the DEBUG_ALL macro in Platform.h, re-compiled with cloverpro, copied the resulting 64-bit EFI files over to my flash drive and booted. The resulting debug messages tell me that Clover is having fits with the FirePro (Device ID 6749, Vendor ID 1002). I have also noticed that ati.c has this FirePro version and many other cards in the same graphics family commented out. The final PCI message sent to the display says:

 

73:095 0:000 PCI (00 | 03:00.00) : 1002 6749 class=030000

 

Then the Clover startup stops dead in its tracks.

 

Any suggestions on which file(s) to modify? Is there something specific to enable within ati.c? I can successfully launch Snow Leopard with the r726 Chameleon, but have discovered that others highly recommend Clover for FX systems. I have tried the 1050 Clover, the 1175, and 1179 builds, before enabling the source code macro. Since I have the same black screen behavior for all three versions, I assume that all three do not like the FirePro. Isn't there VESA sensing, such that the commented out cards in ati.c would use VESA data to display? In 10.6.8 SL, I added the 6749 to the ATI6000Controller kext and have a fully functional FirePro (see here for the procedure). Is a similar solution needed within ati.c?

 

I have a spare ancient Radeon 9600 Pro that I will try in my FX system sometime Saturday morning. Anyone try using that video card with recent Clover builds?

Hello All,

 

After reviewing the ati.c source some more and looking hard at the other ATI graphics cards with Device IDs around 6749 (e.g. the HD6570, Device ID 0x6759, and HD6670, Device ID 0x6758, most closely match the three connector output style of the v4900), I estimated that the Pithecia chip family is highly likely correct for the v4900. Note that the Device IDs listed for the 6570 and 6670 do indeed have odd looking values (out of sequence relative to model number).

 

Anyhow, after determining this, I decided to test this by adding the FirePro to the ati.c listing right before 0x674A, setting everything up appropriately, compiling, creating a test 1179 build package, installing on my flash drive, and booting again. After waiting about 90 seconds while the Clover booting system inspected the system, I have finally reached the Main Clover GUI screen. I will test this more and see what happens next.

 

When I am pleased with the results, I would like to update the ati.c source code. What is the proper procedure to add this change to the Clover source? Should the exact line be posted for someone else to add the change? The line is:

 

{ 0x6749, 0x00000000, CHIP_FAMILY_TURKS, "ATI Radeon FirePro V4900", kPithecia },

 

Sincerely,

@Clover dev team:

Just installed OS X 10.8.3 for a friend of mine.

Ofcourse I used Clover as the booter of choice.

It was an Asus board and everything works great.

From me and my buddy Joris:

A big thank you for all the hard work involved in Clover.

It's awesome ... ;)

Hi,

 

I'm having trouble booting to OS X when I use Clover (USB) as my bootloader. I've been looking for answers for about 4 hours now, and I haven't been able to find anything.

 

When I try booting normally, I get an error. The last few lines of it are

Error allocating 0xedb pages at 0x00000000009ea000 alloc type 2
Loading 'mach_kernel'...
......Error allocating 0x535 pages at 0x0000000000200000 alloc type 2
Error loading kernel 'mach_kernel' (0x9)
sleeping 10 seconds before exit...

 

If I add the flag "WithKexts", I get my root device uuid, a "Loading drivers" notice, several lines of dots, then

Error allocating 0xb pages at 0x0000000000ff7000 alloc type 2
Could not allocate driver module memorysleeping 10 seconds before exit...

 

 

I have also tried to go through the steps listed here, but I cannot find OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi anywhere on my drive, and all my searches for downloads have come up empty.

 

It's like my teacher said. The best way to solve the problem is to ask the right question. 5 minutes after my original post, I found OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi in the ISO download of Clover. I'm still getting an error

AtherosNewma40P2PInterface::init name <p2p0> role 1 this 0xffffff8025cfc000

 

but this looks much more managable than what I was getting before.

 

Current System:

i7 3770k

GA Z77-DS3H

Internal graphics until this can get resolved, then planning on AMD 7870 Eyefinity 6.

Thanks for Clover team for lots hard work and good effect ATI6000Controller.kext your loader Kernel And Kext Patches its worked my system. My card is xfx 6950 2gb .this patch doesn't work without patch AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext inside Accelerator [/system/Library/Extensions/AMDRadeonAccelerator.kext/Contents/MacOS]. I search lots pages but no where no detail about this patch.mac osx every single update i download patched kexts and use it. I need to know how to patch AMDRadeonController what kind data find and replace. I expect the solution from you guys.

I upload patch kexts and ioreg file thank you.

Hi, regarding to ATI connectors patching here #9 , I'm wondering why it doesn't make any difference for my ATI card. I've just tried with a hope having HDMI audio. My HD 7870 has 4 ports (2xminiDP, 1xHDMI, 1xDVI-D). Now it works just fine (except HDMI audio) with futomaki, and ioreg lists as below;

 

@0 - 0x400 = DP

@1 - 0x400 = DP

@2 - 0x4 = DVI-D

@3 - 0x800 = HDMI

 

However when I dumped with radeon_bios_decoder, I got these;

 

@0 - DP

@1 - DP

@2 - HDMI-A

@3 - DVI-I

@4 - DVI-I (not sure about this extra connector - DVI-Dual link?)

 

Fortunately all SenseID are already matched. So, What I thought that I only need to switch between HDMI and DVI-D. Then I added this in config.plist;

 

 

<key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>
<dict>
<key>ATIConnectorsController</key>
<string>7000</string>
<key>ATIConnectorsData</key>
<string>00040000040300000001010012040401000400000403000000010200220505020400000014020000000103000000060600080000040200000001040011020103</string>
<key>ATIConnectorsPatch</key>
<string>00040000040300000001010012040401000400000403000000010200220505020008000004020000000104001102010304000000140200000001030000000606</string>
</dict>

 

I have no problem to boot OS X using either DVI or HDMI port, but when I check in ioreg connector 3 and 4 are not switched as expected. I tried few times with kernelcache and WithKexts, still no difference.

 

Am I doing it right? Or maybe dumping legacy vbios has a relation to this. Because this card now has legacy and efi vbios. Thanks

 

 

[EDIT] Never mind, It works with direct kext patching (KextToPatch) btw.

I have clovergrower, before it generated a package Clover_v2_rL994.pkg but now with version 1214 that package is nowhere to find.

I notice it replaced by a 33 smaller packages.

 

Say I have zero knowledge on Clover, how I am going to install it on a USB flash disk?

Which one to execute?

 

EDIT:

I think there is an error while generating that pkg. Any idea how I can fix it?

Hi, i write this post for three reasons:

The first is to thank all the developers that are making Clover the most powerful bootloader ever.

 

Second i want to ask Slice where can i find the release notes?

 

Third, I can't fix the boot screen resolution on Aptio Bios.

I have an ASUS laptop with 2 graphics cards ( NVIDIA GT650m and HD4000) but the nvidia is disabled with a dsdt method.

To fix this i tried:

- CsmVideo driver with allt the possible flags GInjector=Yes/No, PatchVBios=Yes/No (in both the graphics cards) and EDID Injector but couldn't reach the clover boot menu

- All the above graphics flags without CsmVideo driver but the only one that works is GI=No, PatchVBios=No and EDID Injection.

The last configuration let me reach the clover boot menu with a resolution of 1024x768 (in the preboot.log i have the voice SetMaxResolution: found best mode 0: 1024x768 - alredy set). When i get into the ML's log in, i can see only 1/4 of screen. The Display pref pane reports the right resolution (1920x1080), but i don't get the right view of the screen till i don't downgrade the resolution to 1600x900 and upgrade to 1920x1080.

My driver64UEFI are: Aptiobiosfix, FSInject-64, EmuVariable, osxFatBinary, osxLowmemfix, VbosHFS

Does anyone have any idea to resolve my problem?

I get a Memory Slot Utility error with most recent versions of Clover. The problem went away somewhere before r1208 (works), but resurfaced somewhere around 1212 (does not work). Is that a change in SMI? I'm using Clover with legacy boot for an EVGA SR-2, 2 processors, all 12 memory slots fully populated.

 

Or is it related to the "malformed smbioses" fixes in revision 1199 with all the changes in /rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/smbios.c ? I can't see any revisions to this after 1208...Well know that I know where to look I'll look at it more closely.

Have the same problem.

Today I'd decided to look at Clover anew.

Moreover Clover show me incorrect frequence of RAM. And doesn't show some information such a Serial Number and so on.

I asked Slice about it and he told me that Apianti engage in it and he doesn't want to impede to him.

Hello guys, I really would like to replace Chameleon with Clover, I currently dualboot Windows 8 and OS X but Windows 8 does not boot at all. I select the Windows icon and then later I get some sort of weird square mark, which means either Clover didn't find it or something else is wrong. Anybody know what's wrong?

Either you chosed the wrong partition, or lagacy-boot doesn't work on your motherboary.

How many partitions of ntfs(partitions of windows) do you see?

You can also try the keys "PBR" and "PBRtest". If it won't bring a kind of success. It means that legacy-boot doesn't support your motherboard alas!

      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.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
