Hi guys,

 

So...apparently UEFI DVDs do work on my machine. I've got an older Ubuntu 15.04 around, so I was curious if that one shows up in boot menu.

 

And it does! With no extra changes in BIOS settings. Right now, my BIOS is set to LEGACY + UEFI. That's why it shows the DVD ROM as both UEFI and Legacy.

So I think it should be (at least in theory) possible to make a bootable DVD with Clover on it.

 

In Disk Utility, DVD ROM shows up as Apple Partition Map (intended...I guess...?)

And the partition itself is a FAT12.

But I guess that can't be all. Since the installer can't be only 2.3MB in size. :)) I know linux partitions can't be mounted by default with Disk Utility. So I didn't really bother to mount it.

Hi @arsradu,

I have to inform you that BiosBlockIO will not work with DVD because legacy BIOS (as well as CSM) operate with block size 512 bytes while DVD has block size 2048 bytes. Clover SATA (boot6) is only way to make cdboot.

Hi Slice! :) 

 

Thank you very much for the info.

 

But...I'm not trying to make a bootable DVD for Legacy mode. That one already works (if you manually replace boot6 with boot7 before making the iso). However, I'm trying to make a bootable DVD for UEFI mode. THAT one doesn't work yet. :) 

 

But if you already know how to make that work...please, let me know. Cause I spent almost the entire day trying to figure that out.

Clover DVD STOP at Sierra 10.12 because Apple change the rule , Remember that on High Sierra it is impossible to use Base System USB Installer High Sierra only installs in Create Install Media oficially. I'm not testing the Dosdude1 Patch on a DVD but I have to stop doing DVD programs after Sierra

 

See MacOS X Install DVD Creator

Test here 10.9 10.10, 10.11, 10.12

I see... but I'm not trying to make an installer. Just to boot Clover in UEFI mode, off of a CD/DVD.

 

And...with the help of fusion71au's script (and ./ebuild.sh -mc, so I don't have to manually replace boot6 with boot7 from Clover3911 anymore), I managed to create an iso for booting with BiosBlockIO. So, that part is covered. You can take a look at the script, and the resulting ISO. I can boot that no problem, from CD.

Now I just want to be able to create a CD/DVD for booting Clover (just Clover) in UEFI mode. I'm not interested in making a MacOS Installer.

 

How is is possible for that Ubuntu DVD to show up as UEFI boot item in Boot Menu? Wouldn't be able to do the same for Clover?

Clover-v2.5k-5005-X64.iso

The problem is DVD use cdboot

cdboot boot from Legacy clover not EFI partition

I don't know if that is possible ?????????

I know what you're saying. I'm definitely not an expert. But I did test that iso. And it does work. :) How...? Ask someone with more experience. :))) I can only tell you that it works. If that's not Legacy (since, in theory, I shouldn't be able to boot like that), then it's definitely not UEFI either (cause it doesn't show up as UEFI: in Boot Menu).

 

This is from Clover, booting from CD.

I know that. There is no EFI partition on a CD/DVD. :)

 

Still, the questions remain:

1. how does this trick work then? Cause it does work.

2. how can I make it work in UEFI mode (like that Ubuntu DVD I mentioned above)?

Ubuntu  use EFI folder on root 

I don't think You can using EFI partition with cdboot;  it use only EFI on root

Maybe its possible but I don't know how to ??

But, but...Chris, the iso I posted above also has an EFI folder on root... But I guess that's not used in the same way as a real UEFI boot.

 

And....if cdboot is only for Legacy booting...I'm not interested in using it for UEFI. As I said, for Legacy, somehow it works already. :))) No need to focus on that anymore.

Now I just wanna focus on booting that CD in UEFI mode (maybe similar to how Ubuntu is doing it with that DVD).

 

I also don't know how... But...it seems to be possible...somehow. :))

 

Thank you so much for your feedback, Chris! Always nice talking to you. :)

Hi @fusion71au did you also install 10.15 in HFS+..? On my case am no longer able to proceed Clover installation since r4999. It just got stuck at osascript read-write or whatever it's name. I believe HFS+ has no r/o limitation under Catalina. And it does nothing with $ sudo mount -uw / either. Thanks.

 

No, I only installed hfs Catalina on a VMware virtual machine.  For my physical machines, 10.15 is installed on apfs formatted HDs.

 

Maybe your issue is SIP? Did you set CsrActiveConfig to 0x3E7, CSR_ALLOW_UNAPPROVED_KEXTS?  What is the output of csrutil status in Catalina?  Tried booting to Recovery HD and setting csrutil disable?

 

I also use @ASentientBot's launch daemon - copy CatalinaAutoMountWritable.plist into /Library/LaunchDaemons which auto mounts the root volume as R/W at every login (sudo mount -uw /).

That looks interesting and promising.  If you can find out how the Ubuntu ISO is prepared and burnt to disk in linux, it should in theory be easy to do that for the Clover ISO as well.  Somehow it has a FAT partition (like a FAT32 EFI?).  Note Clover can also be compiled in Linux Mint/Ubuntu with the Build_Clover.command script.

Edit: This post and the subsequent wiki link maybe relevant on how to create a UEFI bootable ISO in ubuntu...:)

 

In addition, see if you can manually add an extra UEFI BIOS entry for the Clover CD/DVD (linking to CLOVERX64.efi) in linux with efibootmgr, or with bcfg in UEFI shell.

 

On macOS, have a look at man for hdiutil makehybrid.  Maybe -udf format will allow the Clover CD/DVD to be recognised when BIOS set to UEFI Only?

 

Finally, if you multi boot with UEFI Windows, then maybe you can manually create a UEFI-CloverCD/DVD entry with the EasyUEFI program.  Link to my guide for adding a Clover entry in UEFI Windows here and @GhostRaider's how to for MSI H81 boards (should be similar or the same BIOS settings to your system). <--- only works with GUID HDs that have EFI partitions

Thanks anyway. I need a rw cd, or a UEFI virtual machine to do some tests..

 

13 hours ago, arsradu said:

Sure, no worries. Fusion71au seems to have made some progress with VM (if I got this right).

 

If you need any more tests on "real hardware", meaning a real CD, I can help you with that. :) 

 

 

The Clover ISO at least is able to EFI boot into macOS Catalina with VMware EFI firmware (also boot7 in your case which is Clover's EFI DUET firmware)...Note Clover's boot log

"Starting Clover Revision ... on VMware. Inc. EFI"

1664840985_CloverISOUEFIboot.thumb.png.48d6dc5c99374269caecf420559c48c7.png

 

The issue is getting the MSI UEFI Bios to recognise the Clover ISO burnt to CD/DVD as a UEFI bootable entry...

After 4992 there are no more error "Not found"?

Don't replace boot6 with boot7. boot7 is BiosBlockIo, it will not work with DVD.

And about UEFI DVD I think it is impossible because there is no EFI partition.

The Not Found errors are there if:

1. I boot with SATA (boot6) instead of BiosBlockIO (boot7).

2. If I have missing drivers for boot. I'm still not sure which drivers created issues for me...that's why I uploaded above the exact ones that worked for me, but yeah, same error for both cases.

 

The only difference is that:

1. For case Nr 1, after the Not Found error, if I press Enter, I get that x64 Exception Type 000000000000006.

2. For case Nr2, I get stuck at Not Found and nothing happens if I press Enter.

 

I don't know why I can't boot with boot6, but I can't.

 

I'll try the newest commit 5006 with boot6 to confirm the "not found" error.

 

About UEFI DVD...it's not impossible, since Ubuntu does it already. :) But....after some brainstorming with fusion71au, it seems to be doing it by creating a mini EFI with efi.img within /boot/grub folder. So yeah, there is no EFI partition on a CD/DVD, but they managed to "emulate it" in some way that it it seems to work.

 

If you wanna take a look, I attached the boot files from Ubuntu 18.04.

Ubuntu ISO boot files.zip

 

Update: Build 5006 (and later) can't boot with default boot6. Not Found error + x64 Exception (red text screen).

This depend by a lack of your bios, why a variant that uses the bios block io was done.

Most likely yes. I know it's a weird issue, and with my previous Gigabyte board, I think I used to use SATA (boot6). But that was like years ago, before even knowing I can boot UEFI. So yeah, it's most likely a particularity of this motherboard.

@vector sigma Can you please, tell me if this is normal for building clover with ebuild.sh -mc?

Also, when writing Clover (pkg variant) to an USB drive, formatted GPT, shouldn't we remove boot6/boot7 file (named just "boot") from EFI partition root directory, when the user switches from Legacy booting to UEFI only?

 

Cause that doesn't seem to happen right now.

that is done automatically, if you can see boot6 or boot7 is because you selected alt boot?

It is ok, for others looks at off folder ;)

Anyway suppose you have a fresh Clover, I guess you want boot6 as well right? so a secondary pass without -mc is needed.

Yeah...I've noticed. Well, I don't really want boot6. :)) That's the problematic one. I can't boot with it.

 

And...it's built by default. So..if I want boot7 (which allows me to boot), I need to do another pass with -mc.

 

About the boot file at the root of the EFI partition, it doesn't seem to be removed when reinstalling in UEFI mode only... Meaning I get this before and after installing Clover in UEFI only mode. Does it work ok for you?

Sorry but no one want to remove a boot file! Can be another bootloader , i.e. not Clover. Anyway if you remove the boot file... what do you want to do with your boot sectors Lol?

For UEFI-only booting, that boot file is not necessary, for as far as I know. Is it...?

Yes your image is ESP Installation not UEFI only!

 

EDIT ***

Or you have install previously on ESP and after you have made a UEFI install on the same EFI partition but Clover will not remove previous ESP choice

if you are select UEFI only is only change the Clover LOG and the Drivers

No but, boot, isn't there for your will? Isn't installed by case. Once you selected a legacy installation, also your master boot record and the partition boot record of your disk are modified (boot0->boot1->boot). Removing the bootloader file didn't change mutch. As I said this is unsafe, the world didn't start nor ends with Clover. What you ask cannot be done, sorry.

Sure, no problem. :) I just thought that's a bug. Since we do add that boot file for Legacy installations, I thought it makes sense to remove it for UEFI-only installations.

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) 2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI) Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!
