It's a pity Goldfish64 changed definition for "device" variables without back compatibility.

See how apple does:


efi-boot-device	<array><dict><key>IOMatch</key><dict><key>IOProviderClass</key><string>IOMedia</string><key>IOPropertyMatch</key><dict><key>UUID</key><string>33D4733F-CBAF-4B8E-A33E-6EB6244C5BF2</string></dict></dict></dict></array>
efi-boot-device-data	%02%01%0c%00%d0A%03%0a%00%00%00%00%01%01%06%00%02%1f%03%12%0a%00%00%00%ff%ff%00%00%04%01*%00%07%00%00%00%c0Y%c3%1e%00%00%00%00%a81l%06%00%00%00%00?s%d43%af%cb%8eK%a3>n%b6$L[%f2%02%02%7f%ff%04%00

Same but different representation.

 

I will propose to create own audio configurator as Clover already knows all audio devices. Just give user a choice for output number and volume.

Also I can think about digital sound and about Speaker/Headphone autoswitch absent in original driver by Goldfish64.

Just take a time.


And i hope you can consider make BootChimeDxe.efi for boot chime before loading bar and sound theme of clover be friendly. It will perfect if we can hear sound befor / after GUI CLOVER. just my opinion

Sorry if this has been asked before, but how do I get the boot chime with Clover legacy?

 

Which files do I need and where do I put them? Also, any changes needed in config? 

I'm using embedded theme.

 

Edit: Got it to work. A users' guide would still be useful though.

Just tried the last official clover release 4842 and got the following errors while trying to check and configure BootChimeCfg.efi on my H170N-Wifi and Prime Z390-A:

Did I miss something?

It's look you don't have AudioDxe.efi in drivers64UEFI

That I noticed by myself in the meantime...

Question is:

Why is BootChimeCfg.efi in an official release, but not AudioDxe.efi?

Because AudioDxe.efi from GoldFish64 use different method to read nvram variable for Audio Device with old ones (Slice's prebuilt).

You can use Prebuilt AudioDxe.efi and BootChimeCfg.efi from here

The AudioDxe mentioned in 

is also from GoldFish64, but older than the version in "r4833_plus_AudioPkg".

EDIT: You can use BootChimeDxe.efi if you make sure all the binaries match newest and don't have sound(_night).wav for clover, or are older and have sound(_night).wav.

 

So i reconfigure my system. Update my CLOVER to r4842 from here https://github.com/Dids/clover-builder/releases . I remove AudioDxe.efi, BootChimeDxe.efi, BootChimeCfg.efi. Then,

1. Boot into Clover GUI and Reset nvram. Press F11 in CLOVER GUI
2. Boot into mac desktop and add AudioDxe.efi to drivers64UEFi and BootChimeCfg.efi to tools and just use sound.wav into Theme folder (BGM_SVG) then reboot to CLOVER GUI (AudioDxe.efi and BootChimeCfg.efi is from here


3. Enter shell and set "bootchimecfg.efi -s 7 -v 100 -t". I use 7 because my lineout is 7
4. Boot into mac then reboot again,, i can hear sound before GUI CLOVER. then i boot to mac desktop.
5. I add BootChimeDxe.efi from GoldFish64 https://github.com/Goldfish64/AudioPkg to drivers64UEFI then i Reboot.

Finally i can hear sound from Theme Sound and sound before loading progress too.

Here the video, sorry for bad english. I attach nvram.txt and preboot.log.

Thanks before

BootChimeDxe is out of discussion here. I didn't make it and didn't recommend it.

 

Didn't Slice request BootChimeDxe to be not discussed here?

Thanks, working fine with r4842 even with latest AudioPkg (AudioDxe, BootChimeCfg), except... after power loss..

 

 

Seems, not related to Clover but NVRAM on my buggie firmware. It always broken after power outage (my laptop has faulty battery, sorry). On this case I need to boot into Windows (UEFI) via "Boot Manager" (not Clover) to get a working NVRAM again. Using this method however, "Windows Boot Manager" would be set as 1st Boot upon System Reboot and it overrides Clover (that I previously set as 1st through BIOS). Sounds silly, right? And sometimes "nvram -c / Clover's F11" not help at all for unknown reason. No problem on another laptop with (also) AMI Aptio.

Because  my Shell is better. It allows to edit config.plist which OpenCoreShell is not able.

OK, thanks.. not a proposition, just my thought if it' s possible looks like..

1. There's an Option on Clover package [ ] Tools: Shell (3rd party)

2. If user check it, provided Shell by Clover will be overrided by that one.

Nevermind, I'm still able to run ebuild.sh then replace *.efi before ./makepkg (for my personal use).

Are you able exchange/move files by mouse or you need installer do the work?

tools/ folder is not selectable because these tools not influence on work. They just occupy several kilobytes.

(Sorry, I don't really get what your 1st line means actually)

Yes, I'm able to manually replace Clover's EFI Shell with OpenCore's one as \tools\Shell64U.efi (before ./makepkg or after *.pkg installed). Would be better (I think for some with similar issue) if Installer do the work (user defined).

Why I will bother about OpenCore Shell.efi?

20 pages back on this topic, it's still no clear solution yet till date, honestly:

On another side, @apianti ever said; it could be issue with specific firmware.. or Shell version matching.

Using OpenCore Shell is a solution that I've found (on my case), beside using old version of your Shell.

OpenCore Shell https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCoreShell

is present as a series of patches to EDK2 and to Shell. I think I implemented all of them. If not correct me.

And yes, EnglishDxe.efi required for some UEFI BIOSes.

Else you will not hear sound.

There is a big question who is mandatory.

 

@Badruzeus

Test, please, this version

Shell.efi-DEBUG.zip

You may start it from some other shell just to see messages on screen.

      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

      I'm trying to install High Sierra 10.13.3 on an ASUS N552VW laptop, and I get stuck after this message:
      "could not recover SATA HDD after 5 attempts, terminating" 
      And some other warnings afterwards.
      Specs:
      CPU: Intel Skylake 6700HQ 2.6GHz
      RAM: 16GB DDR4
      2TB HDD + 128GB SSD
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 530 + Nvidia GTX960m
      I'm installing using a 16GB USB3 flash drive on one of HDD volumes (UEFI Mode)
       
      I uploaded the verbose log and clover config.plist

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      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
