thank for reply

yes I already know this trick  by disable hard disk to sleep but I want to solve this without  disable hard disk to sleep

like OpenCore solved this issue with PowerTimeoutKernelPanic=true

PowerTimeoutKernelPanic=true doesn't fix the actual problem only stop the panic.  The drive that go to sleep won't wake up until next reboot, for example my dvd drive it went to sleep and disappear from my system completely until next reboot.

 

Any mechanical drives like cd/dvd or old spinning HDD seems to be affected by Catalina, The only solution is turn off the Put hard drives to sleep when possible, with this option off, your drives will still sleep when the system sleep, and wake up when system wakeup.  I prefer this option rather than using the quirk fix above where i will lose my drive completely until the next reboot.

I have recently this issue on Catalina 10.15 with Clover_v2.5k_r5097  sometime my laptop occurs automatically reboot

when I boot again from start  this screenshot I captured

1313121499_ScreenShot2019-10-19at6_38_12PM.jpg.1cc04166790af0e185a82417e4c18cf7.thumb.jpg.d742e32424f2f57ea58882eb94dfc247.jpg

I solved this issue with OpenCore bootloader Using this option (Kernel->Quirk->PowerTimeoutKernelPanic=true)  on OpenCore 0.5.2 

but this (PowerTimeoutKernelPanic=true} option does not exist in clover bootloader

how to fix this issue on Catalina using Clover bootloader

I've been using Clover with only fakesmc.kext and AppleIntelE1000e.kext for years. Now, I am forced to use Lilu.kext and WEG 1.3.4 in order for my AMD rx580 to boot Catalina 10.15.1.  I thought AMD gpu are supposed to work out of the box with macOs.

Sad!

I think it depends on your SMBIOS. Try mac pro SMBIOS instead of imac ones to light up your monitors.

Thank you for the suggestion, I think Apple did change the framebuffer which doesn't recognize any of my rx580 port, I did try switching my monitor cable connector between my 3 display ports to see if it will light up the screen, but no luck. Changing SMBIOS is the last thing i want to do, since i had everything tuned and configured for this particular SMBIOS.

Excuse me everyone; Today I tried to install Clover 2.5k 5098  on my running hackintosh Catalina and clover installer told me " incompatible system version " but I chose "install anway"  ..

Once the installation has completed I found that EFI & EFI Backup  folders are in my main disk partition directory and clover didn't update the actual EFI partition and I cant delete these folders which clover created ..

Did I miss something? I've did what I regularly do when I update clover , what the difference now  :help:  :wallbash:

 

Thank you

As usual, for UEFI install, the two first choice. + drivers off and your kexts/drivers

 

You can delete EFI folder in your main partition and keep EFI-Backups

@Matgen84

Thank you 

So I have to check box for the first two options ( UEFI and ESP ) ? 

But I cant delete the EFI folder from the disk directory!! There is no option for move to Pin ?

Anyway ; I've managed to move the files manually to EFI partition and PC boots correctly shown 5098 update ... but my issue is how to delete the old folders

Catalina is read only protect: so you've to use this command in Terminal: Run sudo mount -uw / in Terminal, then force quit Finder. You should be able to modify system files until you reboot.

 

EDIT: Right. You have to check box for the first two options ( UEFI and ESP ) for UEFI system

@Slice An IM user (Osy) has managed to package Intel's TB3 firmware inside of Apple's TB3 firmware and successfully load it onto their Alpine Ridge TB3 controller, which results in virtually perfect TB3 for the first time. You can read about it here: https://osy.gitbook.io/hac-mini-guide/details/thunderbolt-3-fix-part-3

 

I assume everyone will want to do this going forward, so I was curious if it is possible to implement any features in Clover to enables users to do this more easily? Is something like a Patch VBIOS injection even technically possible in such a case? I assume not, but curious what you think about it. Thanks!

Please share your result.  I also have RX580 and I noticed that OC no longer support Clover.  Currently, I use WEG and Liliu for RX580 to work with iMac13.2.  Not sure if latest OS will be compatible for RX580 and if WEG no longer working.  I felt OC is more advance for me, whereas, Clover is more friendly user. just my opinion. 

 

All these "misleading " write up for RX580 compatibility (OOB) but it turn out, u still need 3rd party kext to work.

请分享您的结果。我也有RX580,我注意到OC不再支持Clover。目前,我将WEG和Liliu用于RX580与iMac13.2一起使用。不确定最新的操作系统是否与RX580兼容,以及WEG是否不再起作用。我觉得OC对我来说更先进,而Clover则更友好。只是我的观点。 

 

所有这些“令人误解的”都是为RX580兼容性(OOB)而写的,但事实证明,您仍然需要3rd kext才能工作。

1.3.4 OK!

Well, Catalina 10.15.1 need WEG 1.3.4 for rx580 to work. If you don't want nothing to do with Lilu or WEG in your system, you can use /System/Library/Extensions/AMDFramebuffer.kext and /System/Library/Extensions/AMD9500Controller.kext from Catalina 10.15.0 for Catalina 10.15.1.

Also because has nothing to do with Clover. It is a third party program.

Yeah. Anyway, talking about "third party" I added my Clover themes on to this path:

~/src/CloverBootloader/CloverPackage/CloverV2/themespkg

But ./makepkg gives me these output logs (screenshot below).

Honestly, only these themes are located there:

- Catalina

- Neon

- Smooth

It seems just warning not error, since *.pkg built contains 3 themes above.

I'm just curious it just happens recently, I meant "the logs" didn't appear with prev commits. Thanks.

OK, thanks @Slice I could just ignore those assumptions.

Now about some "cosmetics" on SystemProfiler;

From my screenshot below, how to change:

"Clover EFI Bootloader" to "Current Clover Version" (eg. Clover v2.5k r5098)

// where "Current Clover Version" is fetched automatically.

 

Screen Shot 2019-11-05 at 18.32.12.jpg

 

And these are what I use on "~/src/Clover/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/smbios.c"

  ZeroMem(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING);
  AsciiStrCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, "To Be Filled By OEM");
  AsciiStrCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, "\n  BIOS Version: ");
  AsciiStrnCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, gSettings.RomVersion, iStrLen(gSettings.RomVersion, 64));
  AsciiStrCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, "\n  Release Date: ");
  AsciiStrnCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, gSettings.ReleaseDate, iStrLen(gSettings.ReleaseDate, 64));
  AsciiStrCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, "\n  Board-ID       : ");
  AsciiStrnCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, gSettings.BoardNumber, iStrLen(gSettings.BoardNumber, 64));
  AsciiStrCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, "\n⌘  Powered by Clover EFI Bootloader\n");
  UpdateSmbiosString(newSmbiosTable, &newSmbiosTable.Type11->StringCount, OEMString);

Thanks.

Should be

AsciiStrCatS(OEMString, MAX_OEM_STRING, "\n⌘  Powered by Clover v2.5k %s\n", gFirmwareRevision);

Test, please!

Or use

PoolPrint("\n⌘  Powered by Clover v2.5k %s\n", gFirmwareRevision);

Or it will be more complex because of Ascii <-> Unicode conversion

      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.

      - 2nd and I think the best method: Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

      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)!

      I just made a clean install of High Sierra on a 1TB crucial ssd. Installed clover Clover_v2.5k_r5070 into the EFI of this ssd, but when I tried to make it my default boot drive, the clover screen wouldn't come up, and left a black screen.
      I tried using the Olarilia usb drive and clover did the same thing.  The only way I can currently boot is to use my old drive with clover v2.4k_4945 then select  my new drive from the clover menu.   
       
      Do I need to install v2.4k on my new drive or is there a way I can get v2.5k working?
       
      I have a GA-x79-ud5 motherboard, AMD  rx580 graphics card and use a Sony 4k tv as my monitor.
