Any possible hints for a system that won't boot past the EFI shell once the installation is over?

 

I had no problem following the guide for High Sierra all the way through the core installation process, but after the installation the system dumps me to an EFI shell, and I can't figure out how to get the system to actually boot the installed OS at that point.

Press "F12" key on VBox boot - locate your CLOVERX64.efi from EFI Partition:

Boot Maintenance Manager - Boot from File 

\\or with Boot Manager - EFI Hard Drive.

 No luck unfortunately. The guide does not currently say to install Clover. Clover looks to be a tool like refind, but even booting Refind from an ISO doesn't actually show the Mac installation. As far as I can tell the installer given the guide isn't setting up the EFI partition properly or something similar.

 

Exiting from the EFI shell regardless dumps me to the boot manager, but the two relevant boot options ("Mac OS X" and "Mac Boot") both dump me back to the EFI shell once I try to start them.

Did you "Enable EFI" and is your guest macOS using GUID Partition Scheme?

Boot with Clover ISO then install Clover to your EFI Partition, I guess.

I did install with EFI enabled, and I can boot Clover and Refind post install. Unfortunately, neither system sees the installed OS.

Have you placed "ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi" and or VBoxHfs-64.efi on /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI ?

OK, crashing issue about CoreAudio for macOS Guest has been fixed with VirtualBox 5.2.22-126460 release.

On my case:

- VoodooHDA v2.9.1 installed on /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
- AppleHDA on SLE was moved (we could use HDADisabler alternatively)
- VM Settings: Audio Enabled, Core Audio, Intel HD Audio Controller, Enable Audio Out

Here's the changelog: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Changelog

I had not. Thank you! Pulling the clover release for VMware rather than the upstream release from Sourceforge fixed that problem. Things are booting and setup appears to be working.

 

The big question in my mind is now how do I get it to boot reliably in the future. The guides are currently a bit scattered, so knowing where to read from here to stabilize the system a bit would be quite helpful.

Install hanging on "Creating RAM Disk":

 

I am trying to get a VM running Mojave 10.14.3 on Virtualbox 5.2.22 r126460 on Windows 10.

 

I followed the instructions and got as far as step 3 after removing the macOS.iso, reboot now from the virtual hard drive, Clover runs, choose the first option (Boot macOS Install Prebooter from Preboot), it starts running through scripts and then hangs when creating RAM disks, it never gets to the MacOS install GUI. I have tried to leaving it there for over an hour, VM CPU usage drops to zero and nothing happens. I have tried a few times and oddly each time it stops in a slightly different place but always appears to be when creating one of the RAM disks.

 

Any ideas please?

Thanks in advance.

 

EDIT: It seems there may be something wrong with the ISO file. When running the installer with a new vmdk file, it looks like it crashes before the end and doesn't finish writing all the OS files, so when it reboots it then hangs because it can't find some file it expects. I'll try recreating the iso from my Mac.

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu 
       
       
       
      STEP 3 - Stop Windows Boot manager from overriding Clover boot manager
       
      How to stop Windows boot manager from overriding your Hackintosh Clover boot manager when using dual booting between macOS and Windows

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....

      Cloud Clover Editor allows you to manage Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs everywhere!
       
       
      WEB
      Open Cloud Clover Editor
       
      APP (MacOS - Discontinued)
      Clover flying editor ( Micky1979 )
       
       
       
       
      Sources: https://bitbucket.org/kylon/cloud-clover-editor-cce/overview


      To run CCE at home you will need:
       
      An HTTP server (Apache, Nginx, ...) PHP 5.3.3+ (latest PHP version is always recommended for better performances/security) Sqlite3 PHP extension  
       
      Some Features:
       
      Edit text in tables:
      Editable fields are marked with a text cursor.
      Double click, or tap and hold, to open the inline editor.
      You can now press Enter or click outside to save your changes.
       
       
      Tri-state checkboxes:
      There are 3 possible states for a checkbox: Checked, indeterminate and unchecked.
       
      Checked: Value is true;
      Indeterminate: Value is false;
      Unchecked: Value is not set (ie, removed from plist)
       
      Working with multiple configs:
      The right sidebar is your multitasking menu.
      Use the add button to create a new config and add it to the list.
      You can safely switch between all your configs, no changes will be lost.
      You can mix Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs.


      Config Upgrade feature:
      In the case you are using old configuration options, CCE gives you the ability to automatically upgrade your config.
       
       
      Copy to:
      You can copy patches between your configs (you will love this when you need to copy kernel and kext patches ;D ).
      You will find a yellow copy icon if that field does support the copyTo feature.
       
       
      Ozmosis Mode:
      A new setting, Cloud Clover Editor Mode, is now added in Cloud Clover Editor -> CCE Settings.
      This will let you switch from Clover EFI to Ozmosis mode.
      Changes to your current file will be lost.
       
       
      CCE Bank 2.0:
      Thanks to @cecekpawon for the idea.
       
      CCE Bank is a database where you can save/load Clover EFI and Ozmosis configs.
      You can protect your config from unwanted modifications or make a publicly editable config.
       
      To save a config in CCE Bank you only need to check the "Save to CCE Bank" option.
       
      Tick the box generate a new CID, if you don t have one.
       
      A CID (CCE ID) acts like a container and it is your authentication key.
      You can group multiple configs under the same CID or generate as many CIDs as you like.
       
      Edit Modes:
      Public: Anyone can make modifications, only the owner can change its settings. Private: Only the owner can make modifications and change its settings. MyBank: Only the owner can see this config, make modifications or change its settings.  
      MyBank is your private area.
      Change the 'view mode' to switch between the public bank and your personal bank.
       
      To manage your currently loaded config, go to Cloud Clover Editor -> Open config -> click the settings button.
       
       
      Notes:
      Locked/Private configs are marked with a padlock MyBank configs are only visibile in your private area Only the owner of a locked config can save the modifications in CCE Bank, hower you are free to do whatever you want in CCE and download the modified config If you loose your CID you can just reply or pm me No account is required!  
       
      Main Features:
      Left sidebar does support touch swipe on touch devices.
      No changes will be lost on page reload.
