Have you seen this post and few posts after? It might be the same issue.

A-ha! I was on vacation last week. :D Looks like I missed this one. And I saw some discussions about it in the previous posts. I was just not sure if it was about this issue or not. So I decided to ask anyway, in case it's a different one.

 

Many thanks! :)

Welcome back :)

And I guess it is the same issue, which was resolved short after I posted the issue thanks to @savvamitrofanov

Yep, confirmed. It is the same issue.

 

And it is fixed by adding that AppleImageLoader.efi to Clover drivers folder. Now all we need is to include that functionality (either by adding it to one of the existing drivers, or including this specific driver by default) with the Clover installer itself.

 

Also, I guess the log message below is kind of to be expected? :))

For now we have to include the driver manually it hasn't been added to clover as far as I know and the logs are to be expected for now. Maybe @savvamitrofanov fix the logs in the near future.

Yep, makes perfect sense not to include it so far. It needs some proper testing before deploying it by default with the installer. :)

HFS+ Mojave with @crazybirdy script.

BTW, I remember wanna asking this question:

When entering "UEFI Shell 64" function (or tool) on Clover GUI, it always freezes my system.. or just greets me with "BestLanguage" log. But has no problem with Legacy Shell 64. And, it seems.. I found no solution (neither link) yet #atm. Any idea?

I haven't used the UEFI Shell in a very long time so I have no idea what can be the cause!

Uhmmb, Internal Shell within my BIOS feature leads me to a blackscreen as well, using EDK2 *.efi: -_-

fs0:
cd \efi\clover\tools\
cp Shell64U.efi fs0:\shellx64.efi

#QUESTION:

 

Do we still need FileVault related *.efi Drivers if it is = Disabled on macOS? Thanks.

If not using FV2 then you can safely remove

AppleKeyAggregator

AppleUITheme

FirmwareVolume

HashServiceFix

As well OsxFatBinaryDrv needed only for 10.8 and older.

SMCHelper needed for FV2 and for Hibernation.

AppleImageLoader may check digital sign of loaded module but you can live without it.

Check shell.efi version (data, size). May be another one will work.

@savvamitrofanov

hi. sorry for late test.

i tested only AppleImageLoader.efi without OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi. but i never boot 10.6.8. stop screen in GUI after 10.6.8 partition. still needs OsxFatBinaryDrv-64.efi.

also on my 4230s, shell is not working. shown BestLanguage text in screen. as result. i can't see debug log on 4230s. 4230s is old uefi system.

Hi Chris,

 

Just checking, should that say "If you do not have Clover installed" or is it correct in saying "If you do not have Clover to install"?

Hi

 

Sorry for my newbie questions about AppleSupportPkg, specially AppleUISupport.efi.

  • First, AppleUISupport.efi is only necessary for Firevault Volume. Right or not?
  • In readme, "replaces AppleKeyMapAggregator.efi, AppleEvent.efi, AppleUiTheme.efi, FirmwareVolume.efi, AppleImageCodec.efi."  Also, this Clover's mandatory drivers (AppleKeyMapAggregator.efi, AppleUiTheme.efi, FirmwareVolume.efi, AppleImageCodec.efi) is not necessary. Right or not? 

Thanks

Excuse me if this is a silly question, but where is the new embedded theme located in the Clover folder?

 

In my themes folder I have an embedded folder, but inside is just screenshot.png & theme.plist files. 

 

Update/Edit: Have found the Clover Themes thread, so will look for advice there: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/288685-clover-themes/

Now with VirtualSmc.efi this can be a problem right?

Use or not use it :wacko:

You can't find it in Themes directory except screenshot and theme.plist. Clover is shipping with a embedded theme inside cloverx64 boot driver, I suppose. If I do not say nonsense.

      After hearing that OpenCore is so much better than Clover, and that it will probably be able to boot Big Sur before Clover does, I decided to take the jump.
       
      Running Catalina 10.15.5 18F101 with OC 0.5.9.
       
      So far I like the result. The OS feels faster, boots faster.
      And absolutely everything works (sleep, network, etc...)
       
      So, that's it? Is there anything else I have to do?
