I'm trying to boot MacOS on a Chromebook without UEFI. I'm stuck at getting the bootloader (Chameleon/Clover) to work.
My setup / context:
I have an Acer Chromebook Spin 13.
2 x USB-C 1 x USB-A 3.0 MicroSD Slot No USB A 2.0 (I've read that Clover has problems with USB 3.0) Firmware:
There's no UEFI firmware available and by default, it doesn't even allow booting anything other than ChromeOS. Thanks to MrChromebox (big shoutouts!), I flashed a custom legacy bios that allows me to boot anything linux related. This bios is flashed into the RW_LEGACY section of the existing bootloader (coreboot afaik) and doesn't have any configuration options. If I have to change a setting, I could try compiling his bios payload myself with the specific setting enabled.
What I've tried so far:
Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
> boot0: GPT
> boot0: done
(hangs; pressing power button once shuts down
Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_BEFORE".
2 - Install Chameleon after restoring the base system:
> boot0: GPT
> boot0: GPT
> boot0: doneboot1: /boot <- Exactly like that, no line break in between
(hangs; pressing power button once shuts down)
I haven't been able to reproduce #2 after wiping the drive and doing the same thing again. Subsequent attempts have resulted in either #1 of either Chameleon or Clover.
Chameleon installation log is attached as "Chameleon_Installer_Log_AFTER".
I tried multiple settings and configurations, but all of them boiled down to either one of these.
1 - Doesn't do anything, just hangs at "Booting from usb..."
2 - Boots into the blue/grey mode as shown in the attached images.
According to MrChromebox, this could be an old Tianocore DUET It doesn't detect anything (cpu frequency, ram, partitions or disks)
I've read pretty much every article, github readme and other types of documentation for coreboot, tianocore, clover, chameleon and MrChromebox' rw_legacy payloads and right now, I'm totally clueless as to what to try next...
A few questions that came up:
Why does chameleon hang? What is it looking for, /boot was clearly written to the disk by the Chameleon installer? What exactly is the blue/grey image? According to MrChromebox, it could be Tianocore DUET Where does it come from? Clover? The mainboard itself? Why does the blue/grey thing not detect my processor frequency or any partitions/drives? Can I use some sort of DUET bootloader to chainload Clover?
If you guys could answer any of them or if you have any other guesses or information as to what's happening, I'd be really happy!
Sto avendo problemi di NVRam con qualsiasi combinazione possibile, ho provato AptioMemoryFix + Emuvariable + RC-Script, ho provato con solo Aptio, insomma le ho provate tutte, ma riscontro dei problemi cno la NVRam non da poco.
In poche parole, se imposto uno sfondo, al riavvio o banalmente ad uno spegnimento serale per poi una accensione al giorno successivo, mi ritrovo con lo sfondo vecchio, mi capita di trovarmi col terminale con i vecchi comandi registrati o banalmente qualche cartella aperta. Mi sapreste aiutare?
Vi lascio la mia EFI in descrizione.

Do you want to quickly find your boot log, or ever wanted to know which version of bootloader is installed on your disk(s), had the need to dump your BIOS from OS X, just curious about your own system setup or been asked to provide your setup information to others when asking for assistance?
DarwinDumper is a useful collection of readily available tools, and scripts wrapped in an application framework giving you a convenient method to quickly gather a system overview of your hack or Mac. And rest assured that enabling the privacy option will mask sensitive data like the IOPlatformSerialNumber, IOPlatformUUID, IOMACAddress(s), USB Serial Number(s), SystemSerialNumber, serial-number, fmm-mobileme-token-FMM, MLB and ROM efi vars and CustomUUID in the dumped files and report.
Current Version: 3.0.4
The system dumps are saved to a folder or your choice, but defaulting to the same directory as the main application. You can choose to setup a symlink to make it simple to run DarwinDumper from the Terminal.
There is an option to create an html report showing a complete overview of the dumps. This report will mostly just contain the text dumps as you'll find in the main dump directory, but for some dumps there is extra processing to try to present the information in a better way. For example, the Disk Partitions and Unique ID's dump will show a visual map of the disk layout, and the DMI Tables (SMBIOS) dump will show the data split by table type.
Note: The html report does not contain all files from a complete dump so if seeking assistance for a problem and you wish to send someone a DarwinDump then you will want to send the complete dump directory and not just the .html report file.
The following can be read and dumped by DarwinDumper:
- ACPI tables.
- Audio codec and further info.
- Boot loaders and configuration files.
- CPU info.
- Disk partition structure / info.
- Disk sectors (hex).
- DMI (SMBIOS).
- I/O Kit Registry.
- EFI Memory Map.
- EFI vars (some).
- Kernel information
- Kexts - (list of currently loaded kexts).
- NVRAM (both Apple specific and UEFI firmware variables).
- SMC Keys.
- LSPCI (PCI vendor & device codes) dumps.
- Power (Sleep/Hibernate) settings.
- System Profiler.
- System BIOS.
- System Log(s).
- Video BIOS.

Running DarwinDumper from the command line:
From Terminal, you can initiate DarwinDumper by running the following script directly.
/DarwinDumper.app/Contents/Resources/public/bash/script.sh To help with this, the UI has a Symlink option which you can click to create a symbolic link which points to the above script. DarwinDumper can then be subsequently run from the command-line by loading a new Terminal window and typing darwindumper followed by return.

Please report any feedback, requests or bugs.
DarwinDumper v3 requires OS X 10.9 and newer to run in the Finder, though it should work from the command line okay on older OS versions.
The following link retains the download for v220.127.116.11 for older OS versions.
