Drag the file to trash.

 

Ok. I did that. But Shell.inf is created for each version in EFI/CLOVER/TOOLS, I don't know why.

I just built v 4779 using BuildClover command and I still can not boot my legacy machine. All I see it a blinking cursor.

 

I do not have APFS driver in kext since I don’t use it. 

There should be more information about the issue.

Did you try other boot6 or boot7 files? From previous revisions.

Did you set Boot->Debug=YES to get a debug.log?

What efi drivers do you have?

Because of build script.

I've the same Shell.inf file when I use Makepkg from Source :cry:  I keep searching

 

EDIT: Same issue with Clover Release download from SourceForge

it wont hurt to be in there. or add a command just before the mkpkg to delete it in your script.

 

Thanks :) I can do that in my scripts (Build_clover.command and Dids script). 

 

As I said before  Clover Release download from SourceForge has the same Shell.inf file in EFI/CLOVER/Tools. 

 

EDIT: Thanks @Slice for remove Shell.inf from Clover Package source in commits r4780

For some reason when I have an APFS volume present, Clover takes a very long time to display the GUI (30+ seconds). I am using ApfsDriverLoader and there is no delay when booting without an APFS volume present. In the preboot log it looks like [InitScreen] line is 47 seconds. Any ideas?

So I have enabled -v on my clover config.plist but it's too fast to see the messages. Basically, I'm getting a boot loop and wants to see what's causing it. Is there a flag that prevents the auto restart on kernel panic?

 

Thanks!

I reinstalled 4779 and was not able to boot again. I never get past a solid cursor on screen after POST so there is no debug file to provide for that.

 

I copied boot file from my 4741 installation in to the 4779 EFI and I was able to boot.

 

These are the drives/kexts I have installed:

 

drivers64
FSInject-64.efi
HFSPlus-64.efi
SMCHelper-64.efi

 

kexts
FakeSMC.kext
realtekALC.kext

 

Attached is the debug file from the successful boot.

Yeah, you can also easily use these options from the spacebar menu when a boot entry is selected as well.

Your problem is caused by the firmware emulation if you are not even getting a debug.log and replacing boot with a previous version works. It's much harder to debug that but since you gave a range of revisions where the change occurred that is causing the issue, I imagine it will be easy to find any changes that may have been made to the legacy firmware emulation that are responsible for the issue.

I believe compilation with XCODE 10.1 is the problem.  From your debug log, you are compiling Clover with XCODE 10.1 (with toolchain set to XCODE8) on your system... 

 

Build with: [Args: -mc --no-usb -D NO_GRUB_DRIVERS_EMBEDDED -t XCODE8 | -D DISABLE_USB_SUPPORT -D NO_GRUB_DRIVERS_EMBEDDED --conf=/Users/pkovacs/src/edk2/Conf -D USE_BIOS_BLOCKIO -D USE_LOW_EBDA -a X64 -b RELEASE -t XCODE8 -n 9 | OS: 10.13.6 | XCODE: 10.1]

 

I already mentioned in this post that other XCODE versions eg 8.2.1, 8.3.3, 9.2, or GCC5.3, generate working boot6 and boot7 for my legacy desktop (system 2 in signature) but not XCODE 10.1 ---> boot hanging on stuck underscore "_" symbol.  Also interesting to note that the officially released Clover r4741 was compiled with XCODE 8.3.3 but r4769 (which also fails for your system) with XCODE 10.1.

Does XCODE 10.1 build previous revisions to r4761 without issue? Or does it not build a valid boot firmware at all? Are the different build rules for XCODE 10.1 causing the problem?

 

No, still bad boot6,7 if Clover r4760 compiled with XCODE 10.1 (toolchain set to XCODE8, edk2 r27956).  I think the problem/bug is intrinsic to XCODE 10.1.

Do you use a NVMe drive? The same happened to me. I use apfs.efi from 10.13.0 again as it boots way faster. But please somebody have a look into this? NVMe drives should also boot faster isn't it?

At this moment I can include boot6 and boot7 files from good 4741 revision into next releases until the issue will be resolved.

Ah, i see. What an odd problem.

Can anyone build current Clover with Xcode 8 and I can try on my machine?

Are you sure there is not a problem with the build rules for XCODE 10.1? I don't know if you mean that the problem is an intrinsic function or that it's inherent to XCODE 10.1. If you mean the former, can you narrow down exactly what intrinsic is causing the problem since really all that an intrinsic should be doing is generating an instruction or set of instructions in the same way, this behavior shouldn't really change. For either, the most likely scenario is that optimization is deciding that some needed instructions are not helpful for some reason, have you tried completely disabling optimization?

 

EDIT: Didn't realize you said the toolchain is set to XCODE8, are there no toolchain build rules for XCODE10.1? There may need to be different decisions made, so there should probably be XCODE10 toolchain.

Attached Clover r4784 compiled with XCODE 8.2.1 in 10.11.6: Clover_v2.4k_r4784.zip

 

Alternatively, you can use GCC instead of XCODE to build Clover eg if you use the Build_Clover.command script, edit the BuildCloverConfig.txt file like below...

 

GNU=GCC53
Build_Tool=GNU

 Unfortunately, this expertise is beyond my pay grade...calling @Zenith432 for help? :)

You can try a test by changing the tools_def.txt file in your UDK2018\EDK2/Conf directory and modifying the XCODE8 definitions near the bottom, either line 6227 or line 7000 depending which branch you are using, change the flag -Os to -O0 to disable optimizations for debug. Then build the debug version and see if that results in a working boot firmware. If so, then some specific optimization needs disabled, if not, then new rules need made for XCODE10. In that case, I'll let Zenith432 figure out what that would be since he's much better at that and I don't have the time to screw around to figure out what the problem is...

 

EDIT: You might also want to try adding -O0 to the the ASM rule a few lines before as well to see if that makes a difference.

 

Disabled optimization during compilation with -O0 flag in tools_def.txt still results in bad boot6,7 using XCODE 10.1.  Looks like new rules for XCODE10 will be required...

You means Debug in section KextPatches? Log is impossible here. You can see the process only on screen.

Hi,

 

Despite of localizable.strings file, Theme description for Clovy doesn't exist in clover Package from SourceForge, or build with Build_Clover.command and Did script. 

 

I don't understand, why? Some ideas. Please.

      OpenCorePkg / Documentation / Configuration Template / Bugtracker   Discussion and installation should be done in a separate thread! This thread is for development only!
      Current status as of April 2019: Support for UEFI and DuetPkg (legacy) booting APFS and HFS+ compatibility ACPI patcher (adding, dropping, binary patching, relocation) Apple-compatible bless implementation DeviceProperties injection DataHub and SMBIOS generation Symbolic kext and kernel patcher Direct kext injection/patching/blocking within prelinkedkernel Installation/Recovery/FileVault 2 support  Configuration in config.plist with open documentation Simple boot picker for quick launch Direct boot from dmg images  
      Known defects (for 02.05.2019): Custom memory configuration is unsupported, and provided as is. Full secure boot compatibility is in progress. Hibernation support is missing.  
      For those, who are not familiar with the history, OpenCore is a project initially born in HermitCrabs Lab that unfortunately almost died before its birth. This release is both a rebirth and a complete rewrite of OpenCore, which brings a number of new ideas, and tries to preserve the smart moves incorporated by iNDi and his team. Other than that, I wish to express my deepest words of gratitude to Acidanthera and WWHC members: your participation was and remains the key for project success, and you are simply the best.

      Can I propose a new subforum be created for the new OpenCorePkg OpenCore front end being created by vit9696 and others, it is a fantastic piece of work:
      https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg
      Even at version 0.1 it runs my Mojave 10.14.4 setup very nearly flawlessly. It consists of a 10KB bootstrap BootX64.efi and a 200KB OpenCore.efi OS loader. All configuration is done using a very well documented config.plist

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows

      OK, I've searching for days trying to gather up the tools to make my current install work correctly. I'm well on my way. But all the links to the things I currently must have were apparently nuked "during a forum upgrade". :(
      As far as EFI Studio goes; I can find many links to it. But for Insanelymac, they're broken (due to the upgrade), or for the Netkas site, they're links to either Rapidshare, or Mediafire that also no linger exist. I see many users here indicating that they used it to tweak their DSDT. But the web (google/duckduckgo), Instanelymac, and Netkas seem to have no idea where it's gone.
      Could some kind soul please share a copy, or a link? I'm a loooong time hacker, and would love to bring it back to life. In fact, I'd love to improve it -- or at least bring it up to current times. If only I knew where it was.
      Thank you for all your time, and consideration.
