So, it's just a trick. 1st.. FlatCamp uses:

		<key>Badges</key>
		<dict>
			<key>Inline</key>
			<false/>
			<key>Show</key>
			<true/>
			<key>Swap</key>
			<false/>
		</dict>

2nd: mv vol_internal_apfs.icns os_mac.icns

 

And sorry, IDK why Badges icons (elliptical) are look glitchy though if we press SpaceBar on any selected partition they aren't. And yes, I use MatteColor to decrease 1px black line surrounding the layer (way better I think, than 8-bit png contains Alpha w/o it)

Wait, I still get no idea what it means? os_moja forced uses _apfs by default, the changes are on src or we need to updating themes rsc with new personalization?

macOS Mojave uses APFS by default, so I don't think any necessary using separated icons with devining _apfs. A year back with my propotition about vol_internal_apfs.icns, it seems it's not that simple as difficult getting vol UUID inside apfs_container within Clover GUI.

There's no problem with Badge (os_) icons I guess, both APFS-HFS version of hSierra-Mojave use a same icns name and they're shown properly, I propose to leave as them. Changing these #atm will worse my time updating them (not only I need more than 15 minutes for a theme to be updated on server, was issue since SF migration 4 months back). To be honest, only vol_ icon for APFS is not there which is needed but I have no idea how; only themes with Swap=false got serious issue with this.. for example "embedded".

Good. We need tester with 4K display to personalize theme's layout, so plz test this theme and give me some screenshots (Front menu, About menu, Selected vol menu). Thanks.

@Badruzeus I was about to drop you a line about the Nightwish theme and the new Mojave for which the drives were not recognised as OS. But I realised I should probably first try to update the theme first, in case you already fixed it.

Which you did! :) So, thank you very much for that.

 

Now, one thing I noticed is that now there are two versions. A Nightwish version (which I got) and a Nightwish256 version...

Which version should I get? Cause...looks like the one I got has pretty big icons.

 

Also, if I get Nightwish256...do I also need to type Nightwish256 in Clover config...? Or..just Nightwish...?

 

I'm a bit confused.

It shown as it I guess, os_sierra, os_hsierra & os_moja use a same typographic "macOS" for Nightwish.

Nighwish uses 160px for MainEntries, another one with 256px. I think U're using the last one (?)

160px and 256px are different themes, and they're not following Slice's commit here yet because I still have trouble previewing it on my (limited) 768px display height.

Can I help?

I can test on 1080p (1920x1080) and 1440p (2560x1440).

Yeah, download both Nightwish & Nightwish256. Rename Nightwish256 => Nightwish@2x. Under layout of config.plist for @2x use "DesignHeight=1110". On Clover GUI, Theme=Nightwish (w/o 256 or @2x). Now test previewing it with display height larger than 1080p: it should use Nightwish@2x by default. That's what I got from Slice's commit above. Thanks.

Alright. Will try that when I get home.

 

Update:

 

Ok...so let's see.

  • I downloaded both versions of Nightwish and added them BOTH to Clover/themes.
  • I renamed Nightwish256 to Nightwish@2x.
  • Clover configurator -> Theme Editor, set DesignHeight to 1110px

  • GUI -> Remains unchanged (Nightwish)

If that's correct, then I've got two issues to report:

1. non functional mouse and keyboard in Clover UI, so it's a good thing that it boots by default to the correct partition. I couldn't even take a screenshot since none of the keys worked.

2. huge icons.

 

For comparison, this is what the old version I had looks like on the 1440p monitor.

1. Non functional mouse & keyboard is not related to theme afaik (I get no touchpad working, but kb is working properly)

2. With Nightwish & Nightwish@2x are on /themes using 1440p disp height, I'm not sure which one are used automatically, plz check preboot.log or $ bdmesg.

 

I just wonder why it's icons seem not shown properly (from ur SS); on 1st Gothic theme a year back I did test from Snow Leopard to Sierra. Each have different icons on GUI, or if you have this from Clover config.plist.. plz change it to "false" and try.

<key>CustomIcons</key>

Well. I didn't think it was related to the theme until I actually switched the themes. :))) So....if it's not that (and it would make sense that it isn't), then what is it? Cause I put back the original theme (only ONE folder), and everything back to normal again.

 

I don't have custom icons (you can see it in the second screenshot, as well. :)

 

How do I get a preboot log? In the meantime, I'll try to get a bdmesg.

 

As for the icons...I don't know.... But that's the original version you posted here a while ago, and has been fixed in the meantime. But the new update seem to have also introduced other issues. :)

Also, one thing I've noticed. Not sure if it's because we have two theme folders or something else...Clover UI is very slow to show up with this setup. Probably checked for a lot of things before displaying the UI. But...it's kinda slow.

 

Update:

 

ok, now we have mouse and keyboard. But the icons are still huge.

screenshot0.thumb.png.a24cba7d2c7c1313746fa95c4573665c.png

 

Attached you have a bootlog. Hope that helps.

 

Update: I also tried with only Nightwish@2x in Clover/themes (so...I'm not sure we need both..)...and it works (as in no crashes or something). But also it makes no difference to the actual icon size. They're still huge.

Oooh, I got it. ^_^ Actually, not an issue.. latest version of Nightwish* themes on repo I made them bigger (160px) for MainEntries.

Just try opening screenshot*.png using (for example) Photoshop.app, rename os_moja.icns => os_moja.png. Drag os_moja.png to screenshot.png, I'm sure they have same icons size. I can make it smaller on next update if you wish (?)

 

About "Clover UI is very slow to show up with this setup" do you mean with theme and theme@2x enabled? Thanks for reporting this, on repo however there's still no theme uses this config, so let's see what next.

I see... Well...something is weird. Cause...the keyboard does start to have lag with this theme. It's not unresponsive as I thought initially, but it does have lag... I'm not sure why.

 

It might be only a matter of taste, but I personally liked the initial icon size (not sure what that was, but you can see the difference in my previous screenshots) a little better. :) You are the artist here. It's your call. And some people might like it the "new way". So...don't do it for me. If you like it this way, then leave it like this. But I think I might switch back to the original version, since my personal preference would be towards that one.

 

There are actually other themes with "256" in the Clover repo. Not sure whose they are...or if they work.

 

But...I still don't know if I should be seeing any difference with Nightwish@2x.... Does the switch work...? Did the log help?

And yes, I mean with Nightwish@2x enabled (probably the regular one, as well, it takes a longer time, from the time my motherboard displays the logo, to the time it actually loads Clover GUI. In which time, it's only a black screen. This does not/did not happen with the initial version I've got.

 

Maybe the theme is heavier...maybe it's something else. I don't know. But I did notice a difference in performance.

 

Update:

 

Ok, so two themes and reboot, first time you boot, keyboard is really unresponsive. After a second reboot, it works.

As for the lag in loading...I'm still not sure what causes it...but now it seems to occur with the old theme, as well... Also, I had debug enabled before. So, that could have probably contributed to it, as well. But even after disabling it, it still seems a bit slow to load. Even the old one...

 

So, don't know what to say.

Using different theme maybe, there're "Lightness, Greenify.." among others, these are small themes fyi.. try them if this issue is still same. Otherwise, not caused by choosen theme.

I'm sure it works just fine, as I have 60+ themes installed on my /EFI/CLOVER/themes folder and get no issue so far.

But they're separated themes, means using different value on config.plist - GUI - Themes or $ sudo nvram Clover.Theme="Theme Name". 

 

About your prev. setup with Nightwish@2x is also working on your mach I guess, log gives this:

Nah, this one is bit hard to conclude.. could because different mach configs, *.efi drivers used, etc.

How if (temporarily for test purpose) disabling APFS.efi driver for example, or using Scan=true within config-GUI instead of Custom Entries, Mouse Enabled=false, specified language on GUI, etc. Fyi, I also don't use any value on Boot Graphics (not sure what this affects on my Legacy mach #LoL).

Yeah...it's most likely something on my rig. I tried the regular Nightwish (not the 256 variant) and it looks better. The icons are smaller and it just looks better. Not sure what the purpose is for these 256 themes. Aside from being confusing.

 

I mean, in my case, I would still choose the default theme instead of the 256 one.

      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      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.

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.7 beta 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 Mojave 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)
       
      Mojave & 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)!

      Hi.
      I apologize in advance if I didn't post in the right category and if my title and description aren't specific enough :c
       
      My config in a nutshell:
      CPU: i7 5820k GPU: MSI GTX 1060 3GB RAM: 16 GB MOBO: MSI X99 SLI PLUS I attached RunMe output with all the details of my built.
       
      Some background:
      I have my Hackintosh for about half a year. That time I managed to make it works and fix major issues, but some of them left unresolved since then and I ignored them until now.
      I use my Hackintosh for Adobe projects (PR, AE, PS, IL, AU and a lot more) - most of them connected with video editing of course browsing with Chrome and other small tasks.
       
      Problems:
      Random restarts - this is the biggest one. I'm starting to work on bigger and bigger projects and at this time I think I can't allow this to happen that often. In the past, they happened like once a day or a couple of times a week. However, now it's just frustrating when it happens even 5 or more times a day. I've tried to observe and find out what can be the cause but I haven't managed to find any connections. I thought it happens when Premiere or another app is using GPU, but I haven't seen increased usage when it restarts. I think that it can be connected with GPU, memory or PSU or... meh, anything else. I don't have resources to check if it'll work with other components. There should be some fix for this. I will really appreciate any help with this :c Restart instead of shutdown & sleep doesn't work. I've tried to look through some Google results for this and tried many solutions (as you can see in attached Clover folder), but I think the right one for many of these issues is to make my own DSDT. Glitches, freezes and other things while encoding a video. It happens very often when I try to do this. Maybe it is an issue with GPU or (hopefully) only with GPU drivers which can be fixed with some patch. Today my headphones stopped working. I have a multi-output device configured in the Audio MIDI Setup app which includes my headphones (HyperX Cloud via USB) and Soundflowerbed virtual audio device for capturing system audio. Today while I was trying (like 15 times) to encode a video in Media Encoder in the background and watch video on YouTube I stopped hearing anything from my system. Of course, it restarted a couple of times as always, but even this didn't solve this. If I plug them directly with mini jack (not via USB Soundcard which was in the box and which I always used) in the front IO or the back I only hear some loud noise It takes EX-Fat formatted volumes a few minutes to mount after each restart. I found a workaround to format it with NTFS since I have Tuxera installed and I will reformat these volumes when I will find time for this, but maybe there is some fix for this. GPU is a little bit hot. HW Monitor shows it is only 45-55 degrees, but for my hand is a little bit hot, idk. Also related to GPU - glitch after POST but before entering Clover boot menu. It is a black screen with little white squared glitches for a few seconds. Maybe it indicates the GPU drivers are loading, but maybe it shouldn't be like this. And if I can ask about that - I can't make all applications hide on startup. I, obviously, have "Hide" checkbox checked on every login item in settings, but it doesn't work, none of the apps is hidden in the dock. Is there a way to fix this? Also a small but annoying problem - I can't turn off permanently Mojave update notification (since I tried to install it, and I had to reverse to High Sierra because I had a black screen and I didn't have time for repairing all of them. Tags are not working in Finder - every time I tag a file or folder and make a change in it (for example save a text file) the tag disappears.  
      So, with knowing all of that, is there a way to make a proper DSDT file for my Hackintosh? I tried to look through some guides on how to make it but I think I reached my abilities to understand how Mac OS works and what all of these things are, so I'm asking you guys politely, would someone like to help me? At least with these random restarts? :/
      I really begin to think that I'm a newbie in configuring all of that Clover things - even after what I managed to do with my PC. Help me, pleease... :c
       
      If you have any questions post it below, I will really appreciate any help <3

      TLDR:
      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.
      Available ports:
      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:
      Chameleon attempts:
      Only selected setting was "Install chameleon on the chosen path", rest was unselected.
       
      1 - Install chameleon first without restoring the basesystem:
      Output:
      > 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:
      Output:
      > 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".
       
      Clover attempts:
      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!

      Short Version:
      I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
       
      More Detail:
      I've done a few hacks so far and this never happened. (Gigabyte z370 / 8700k / Vega, Asus z390 / i5-9600k / 1080). Now, I'm setting up a ThinkPad X1 Gen 6. (Yes, I do expect problems on laptops, but that's not the question).
       
      Mojave 10.14.4 now boots from the internal SSD. So far, so good. Here's the problem.
       
      I installed Mojave on a USB drive (for backup / rescue) and copied the entire EFI partition of my boot drive to the EFI partition on the USB drive. So... I should be able to boot from the USB drive, right? Wrong. Ran Clover installer on the USB itself. Same outcome.
       
      With F12, I can boot from the USB into Clover and select the OS on the USB. The boot sequence hangs on End Random Seed, but before the usual '++++++++' line.
      So, boot into Clover on internal boot drive, then select OS on USB. Same thing.
       
      Read the forums, I saw the posts about AptioMemoryFix, so I tried the various other drivers on the USB. No go.
       
      I haven't found the solution yet to the USB boot issue, but what puzzles me is that if I have two drives with the exact same EFI folder (and I can boot into Clover from either one), shouldn't I be able to boot into MacOS from either one?
