Bootloader, Which?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am planning make a fresh install of Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4 on my rig and wanted know which is the bootloader more adequate


I have experience using the Chameleon and Chimera but heard very good comments about the Enoch and Clover, in special about the Clover that is capable of create a recovery partition


I was searching information and tutorials of how create an USB stick with Clover but the information is very disperses on the net and my first attempt was a failure


Somebody know about a good tutorial for a noob like me, explaining in detail and with a F.A.Q for resolve troubles?


My rig is


Intel i5 2400

Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H

Asus nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti


I want install Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4


Thanks in advanced

Enoch is a branch of Chameleon, just like Chimera, except it offers more futures. Link here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/71-enoch/

The topic about Enoch is in Italian, google translate friendly.


Clover, well for me it only works in UEFI boot, if this is possible for you, then i can only link the following: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/forum/327-clover/

A lot of information about Clover can be found there.

And a guide on how to install/add it to the bios: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287737-how-toclover-on-efi-partitionadd-to-bios/


Hope this helps.

I was reading quickly this link http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287737-how-toclover-on-efi-partitionadd-to-bios/ seems that is for an early version of Clover because the last version support the installation for volumes HFS+



I think that my motherboard is capable of support Clover because i can choose the kind of boot, UEFI, UEFI and Legacy or Legacy
I need read the guide more carefuly because i did an attempt quick and get the error "Loading Drivers" and nothing more happens
I will back with the report
