Hello! My internal SSD lifetime is running out so I'm thinking how to upgrade it. I don't want to replace it with slow Sata SSD so I want to buy OWCMercury Helios and install new nvme fast ssd, but I won't be able to boot from it using standard boot loader.... Is it possible to boot nvme ssd using Clover on real iMac?
I jusst bought a 500gb crucial mx500 to see wheter the slow response of my hackintosh was due to the old 2.5" 500gb wd black hdd that i savaged from a broken laptop at home to install osx the first time but i don't know how to transfer my datas, os, programs and bootloader on the new drive since crucial only shows how to clone the drive but doesn't (obiously) refer to the clover boot partition, how can i do that?
and what filesystem should i use? apfs or hfs+?
I can also use windows or linux programs since i'm on a triple boot setup
I am new, I hope I am posting in the correct forum.
My specs: Processor: Core i5 6500 Skylake 3.2ghz
Mobo: Gigabyte h170-d3h
M2SSD: WD Black 256gb PCIe (Mac OSx)
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo (WIndows 10)
HDD: WD Blue 1TB
GPU: Radeon RX 480
Monitor: BenQ RL2460 24"
I was able to install High Sierra on a new m2 drive, that I added to the above configuration with windows 10 already installed.
I had a few issues during install, including the monitor turning off at boot screen.
Unfortunately, this persists even now. It turns off at about 60% of the progress bar, and to turn it on again I have to unplug/plug back my hdmi.
Additionally, while all of the usb ports worked during install and while running it out of the clover I had on the usb stick, only the rear ones appear to work now.
The audio doesn't work either, though I added the correct patch according to my mobo
Lastly, my other drives are not recognized in the bios anymore. They run fine from boot override but they don't show up in the boot priority (while multiple entries of mac OS do, and they seem to increase in number at every reboot)
