I got it working when I press ENTER on the drive to boot, and for me it's ok this way.

 

But I can't get the "output volume" to work. No matter the value I put... it will always play at maximum volume, and it's a huge BAAAAAMMMMMM!!!! :shock:

 

Anyone knows how to fix it? Using Clover r4862 and ALC1150.

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention that F7 sound preview is also not working for me.

Current revision 4870 has a big difference in sound support compared to 4862.

Thank you, Slice!!!!

 

Would you mind give me a link for r4870?

 

Thanks again!!!!

Thank you, iCanaro!!!!

 

Looks like today you learned two things. :) How to navigate in Shell, in order to find your Clover boot drive. And learned about the existence of a Clover builder github page. Pretty cool knowledge for one day. :) 

 

Personally, I prefer to build it myself. The Dids builds, while very useful, seem to use some weird parameters to uncheck some of the default drivers in the installer (not sure why), which I don't particularly like. But if you're careful during installation, and check those boxes back again, you should be good to go.

Just to throw my 2 cents into the chime discussion:

 

I put AudioDxe.efi and BootChimeDxe.efi from the AudioPkg-R1-RELEASE into both the drivers64 and drivers64UEFI folders, and have PlayASYNC=False in config and I get the classic Mac boot chime right when I see the Apple logo appears on screen. Exactly the behavior I want!

 

Not sure I actually need the PlayASYNC switch but it works so I won’t touch it. :) Maybe I will test it later.

 

If you look at my signature you will see I am on an old non-UEFI motherboard.

Almost the same as you...

 

- I have AudioDxe-64.efi (from clover r4870), and BootChimeDxe.efi from AudioPkg-R1-RELEASE only at Drivers64UEFI...

 

- BootChimeCfg.efi and  HDACodecDump.efi (I'm not sure if I need this last one) from AudioPkg-R1-RELEASE at Clover\Tools...

 

- And no PlayASYNC in config.

 

With that I have the Mac Boot Chime only when I see the Apple Logo on screen. So, I think you don't need PlayASYNC at config.

PlayAsync actually doesn't have anything to do with any of that.

 

Play Async only refers to the portion before the Apple logo and the loading animation (before Clover UI to be precise), and consists of two modes:

 

1. in Sync -> the sound is played before Clover GUI and the UI is displayed after the sound has finished playing -> PlayAsync=False

2. Async -> the sound is played before the Clover GUI and continues to play when the UI is ready. -> PlayAsync=True

 

This is with Clover's implementation. What you guys are using right now is GoldFish's implementation, which will play the sound (packed into the BootChimeDxe.efi file) when selecting a boot drive (so AFTER the Clover GUI is loaded). So, for this case, PlayAsync = True or False will actually make no difference whatsoever, since you're not using Clover's implementation.

 

To me, what Clover did is closer to what's happening on real Macs. And I personally prefer it this way. But if that doesn't work for you guys, or if you prefer it after the Clover GUI, when the Apple logo is displayed, that's definitely an option.

asradu,

 

Thanks for the clarification :D

I'm thinking about to try "Sync" to see the result! :whistle:

 

After using Mac Boot Chime I have noticed an increased time until reaching the Clover GUI, and also at the end of the boot, it seems that the progress bar, just below the Apple logo, is stopped for a longer time until it reaches the Desktop.

 

Don't know if it's normal or only with me.

Now that you know your way around the GoldFish method, why not give Clover implementation a try?

 

For this, you don't need BootChimeCfg or BootChimeDxe. You only need AudioDxe, added by Clover during installation.

 

All you need is the sound.wav file, configured correctly, placed inside your selected theme folder. The attached file works perfectly fine for me. So you can use it if you want to. The volume can be adjusted from Clover GUI -> Options -> Startup Sound. For 60%, you should type 0060. Also here you should be able to select the output device (you should already know which one it is from configuring it from Shell). After that, select Return to go back to main screen, Restart, and...hopefully it should work.

 

Now, in case the device output selection didn't go so well for you, you can still configure it from Shell, using BootChimeCfg.efi. Just the way you did before. The difference is that, if you removed BootChimeDxe, you should only have one startup sound, the one from the theme, and it should be played before the UI is loaded. You can still keep BootChimeDxe if you want...but it will play both sounds. :)) Which...well, I don't know why would you want that.

 

By default, PlayAsync should be OFF, so it will be "in Sync", meaning the UI will wait for the sound to finish playing before getting display. Personally, I prefer PlayAsync=True for two reasons: it takes less time to boot (since the UI usually finishes loading faster than the sound finishes playing), and it's closer to real Macs experience, in my opinion. But nobody's stopping you from trying both, if you want. As I said, by default, it will be the one you want, meaning "in Sync"

Is something significant has changed since clover v 48xx? I can't update clover past version 479x and get mojave to boot properly.

Not that I know of. I mean, there shouldn't be any significant changes that would cause boot issues... But if you could provide more information on what happens exactly, that might help. Maybe a boot log. You could boot in verbose mode and see where does it get stuck. You might need to update your drivers, in case you haven't already. So...there could be multiple issues. But I personally haven't encountered such issues. So...maybe you can also upload your Clover folder for a deeper analysis? You can remove the serials from your config.plist/smbios.

 

Also, I think it might help a lot to know which hardware are you using. Could you, please, update your signature to include this information?

with mojave 10.14.4beta the kernel has been changed and to start it it is necessary to at least clover 2.4_4862

Been trying to get the boot chime using the goldfish method but can't get it to work.

 

In the clover gui under startup sound output, I only have options for HDMI out through my GPU.

My realtek codec is ALC891 and I'm using layout=13 in my config.plist

I also tried updating clover to v4870 but I get the same result.

Thanks, asradu!

 

I did the "Clover way", and I must confess, it's better! From now I'm leaving Mac Boot Chime before Clover GUI :D

 

But my boot time is still taking a long time since the implementation of Boot Chime, takes age at something like "gtrace synchronization point" or something like that.

 

Thank you again!!!!

It has nothing to do with layout. Configure it using bootchimecfg in shell.

 

I just tried to configure using bootchimecfg in shell, same result. Only shows HDMI outputs, no realtek outputs.

Do you have audio in macOS?

If so upload ioreg and screenshot of audio I devices panel.

Audio works perfectly.

 

Don't know if this is the right information you need:

ALC3863 is what it says on the HP website for my mobo: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05838790

 

I google'd ALC3863 when I was setting up my install and found that ALC891/ALC867 would work for my audio with layout=13

 

What are you using to get sound in the OS? AppleALC + Lilu or a different approach?

      Hi, I'm trying to install Mac Os Catalina on a HP 550-132NL.
      The system has:
      i7-6700
      RAM 12 GB
      GT 730
      LAN Realtek RTL8161
      ALC3863
       
      It passes the verbose phase but after the Apple logo goes away, it gets stuck on a grey screen and I can only move the pointer.
      Can I try to boot with the iGPU?

      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

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.
