Manually install Clover for UEFI booting and configure boot priority with EasyUEFI in Windows

 

This tutorial will show how to manually install Clover in the EFI system partition of a pre-existing install of UEFI Windows.  In the process, you will also learn how to mount the EFI partition and add Clover as a UEFI boot option (using the EasyUEFI program) in Windows.

 

Prerequisites
1.  CloverISO from Sourceforge.
2.  7-Zip for Windows
3.  EasyUEFI
4.  Existing UEFI install of Windows X64 (7,8,8.1 or 10)

Obtain Clover
1.  Download the CloverISO.tar.lzma file from Sourceforge and open the file with 7-Zip.

Mounting the EFI System Partition and installing Clover
1.  Open an administrative command prompt by clicking the Windows start button, typing cmd and right clicking on the search result as shown below...

2.  Type the following commands, followed by <Enter> after each line:

diskpart
list disk
select disk # (where # is the disk number of the disk with UEFI Windows)
list partition
select partition x (where x is the partition number of the EFI system partition.  By default, it is usually the 100MB second partition)
assign letter=s
exit

3.  Open Windows Task Manager as administrator by clicking the Windows start button, typing taskmgr and right clicking on the search result as shown below...

 

post-846696-0-98469900-1451035903_thumb.png

4.  Click Run new task

 

post-846696-0-53196700-1451035929_thumb.png

5.  Click Browse and in the Browse window, navigate to the EFI folder in the System Partition (which is mapped to drive S:) and also select "All files" from the drop down menu...

 

post-846696-0-92956500-1451035973_thumb.png

6.  Right click inside the EFI folder to "paste" the Clover folder we downloaded earlier.  If necessary, you can make edits to Clover's default config.plist with Wordpad or add OSX kexts like FakeSMC into the \kexts\other folder while still in the Task Manager browse window.  For UEFI booting into OSX, you will most likely need the OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi driver in EFI\CLOVER\drivers64UEFI (copy from the \CLOVER\drivers-Off\drivers64UEFI folder).

7.  Quit Task Manager.

 

Add Clover as a UEFI Boot Option using the EasyUEFI Program
1.  Open EasyUEFI and click on the small icon with the plus sign (second from top) to add a new entry.

 

post-846696-0-22133300-1451036124_thumb.png

2.  In the Create Boot Entry Window, choose "Linux or other OS" as the entry type, click to select the EFI System partition as the target and browse to the CLOVERX64.efi file (file path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi) as shown below...

post-846696-0-82792200-1451036173_thumb.png

3.  Type Clover in the Description field then the OK button.

 

post-846696-0-25737000-1451036230_thumb.png

4.  You will now see the new Clover entry on the main GUI of EasyUEFI.  Click on the entry and then click the small up arrow icon to move Clover to the top so it will get priority over the Windows Boot Manager on boot up.  Note on this screen, you can also delete/edit/disable boot entries or move them down the boot order.

post-846696-0-98971400-1451036299_thumb.png

5.  Click the power menu and select reboot to restart your system (use your system's boot device selection key to choose the drive with CLOVER installed if necessary eg F12 for Gigabyte motherboards, F8 for ASUS motherboards, F11 for ASrock motherboards) ---> will now be presented with the Clover Main Menu GUI to boot Windows (or OSX).

Manually Install Legacy Clover and prepare GPT disk in Windows (for dual boot UEFI Windows and OSX)

 

Prerequisites
1.  GPT FDisk aka "GDisk"
2.  7-Zip
3.  Windows X64
4.  Bootice program
5.  Clover ISO downloaded from Sourceforge

 

 

Erase Hard Disk to RAW state with Diskpart.exe
Open an administrative command prompt and type the following lines, followed by the <Enter> key after each line....

diskpart
list disk
sel disk # (where # is the disk number of the disk you wish to erase)
clean
exit

 

 

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10586]
© 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>diskpart

Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.10586

Copyright © 1999-2013 Microsoft Corporation.
On computer: XPSM1530

DISKPART> list disk

  Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
  --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
  Disk 0    Online          465 GB  1024 KB        *
  Disk 1    Online          931 GB   871 GB

DISKPART> sel disk 1

Disk 1 is now the selected disk.

DISKPART> clean

DiskPart succeeded in cleaning the disk.

DISKPART> exit

Leaving DiskPart...

 

 

 

 

Use GDisk to convert the Hard Drive to GPT and create partitions for dual booting UEFI Windows and OSX
In this example, I have a 1 TB hard disk which I plan to divide up as follows....

 

  • Partition 1: 200MB EFI System Partition
  • Partition 2: 128MB Microsoft Reserved Partition
  • Partition 3: 60GB NTFS Partition for Windows
  • Partition 4: 871GB HFS+ Partition for OSX

Notes -

  • EFI System Partition is preferably made the first partition for compatibility with OSX.
  • I usually leave 128MB of free space before and after the HFS+ partition or OSX Disk Utility will complain about a lack of "loader space".

1.  Open an administrative command prompt and cd to the gdisk installation folder
2.  Type gdisk64 #: (where # is the disk number of the disk you are creating partitions on - in this example it is disk 1)
3.  Use the following gdisk options:
     n to create a new partition
     x to access the experts menu
     a to change partition special attributes (needed for EFI System Partition)
     m to return to the main gdisk menu
     p to print the partition table
     w to finalize and write changes to the disk

Eg

 

 

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd \gdisk

C:\gdisk>gdisk64 1:
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.0

Partition table scan:
MBR: not present
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: not present

Creating new GPT entries.
************************************************************************
Most versions of Windows cannot boot from a GPT disk except on a UEFI-based
computer, and most varieties prior to Vista cannot read GPT disks. Therefore,
you should exit now unless you understand the implications of converting MBR
to GPT or creating a new GPT disk layout!

Install legacy Clover bootsectors in Windows

 

Overview
The Clover wiki describes the legacy booting process:

Essentially BIOS--->MBR--->PBR--->boot--->CLOVERX64.efi--->OSLoader

In terms of the bootsectors we will be using in this tutorial
BIOS--->boot0af in MBR--->boot1f32alt in the PBR of the EFI System Partition--->boot6 in ESP--->CLOVERX64.efi in ESP--->OSLoader

Procedure
1.  Download the CloverISO tar.lzma file from Sourceforge and extract the ISO with 7 Zip
2.  Copy the following boot files from \usr\standalone\i386 folder
     boot0af, boot0ss, boot1f32, boot1f32alt

 

post-846696-0-11393200-1455486159_thumb.png

    and boot6, boot7 from \usr\standalone\i386\x64 to somewhere convenient

 

post-846696-0-24359500-1455486181_thumb.png

    The EFI folder will also be needed later....

 

post-846696-0-25810500-1455486220_thumb.png

3.  Open the Bootice program and click Process MBR from the main menu

 

post-846696-0-13825000-1455486236_thumb.png

4.  At the Master Boot Record screen, click restore MBR

 

post-846696-0-15547900-1455486261_thumb.png

5.  For the Restore file, browse to the boot0af or boot0ss file we extracted in step 2

 

post-846696-0-59456100-1455486304_thumb.png

6.  Click the Restore button and you should get a confirmation that the operation completed successfully.  Click the close button.

 

post-846696-0-35281700-1455486331_thumb.png

7.  Click Process PBR from the main menu


8.  At the Partition Boot Record screen, select the FAT32 EFI System Partition as the destination and click the Restore PBR button.

 

post-846696-0-05841700-1455486350_thumb.png

 

9.  For the Restore file, browse to the boot1f32 or boot1f32alt file we extracted in step 2.  In this example, I used the alternate booting PBR (boot1f32alt), which gives a 3 second pause to enable the user to input his/her choice of boot file during bootup (default is boot6).

post-846696-0-18318900-1455486396_thumb.png

 

10. Click the Restore button and you should get a confirmation that the operation completed successfully.  Click the close button and exit the program.
11. Open Task Manager as administrator and open a new task.  Browse "all files" and navigate to the EFI System Partition (which we assigned the drive letter S: earlier).

 

post-846696-0-98469900-1451035903_thumb.

You should now be able to copy the EFI folder from the Clover ISO (as well as boot6 and boot7) into the EFI System partition.  If you used boot1f32 for your PBR, rename "boot6" to "boot".

 

post-846696-0-09360100-1455487178_thumb.png

 

12. Make the necessary edits to the EFI\CLOVER\config.plist for your system and make sure you have FakeSMC.kext in EFI\Clover\kexts\Other.  If you have a DSDT &/or SSDTs that works for your system, place them in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.

13. Reboot the computer and it should boot to the Clover Main Menu :) .

Had to do this without guides when my hack suddenly deleted the partition table after running out of battery in sleep mode on Mac OS X. Now at least people know how to do it with this very detailed guide. Thanks.

Thanks a lot for the guide! After messing with dual installation, I couldn't load MAC OS X without USB. Your guide helped, only had to download EasyUEFI and copy Clover folder from my USB.

Yeah, I know. I stumbled upon ways to fix it in the Mac OS X and got a lot of helpful advice in another thread, but couldn't make anything work regarding this issue(now I get why, I did some steps wrong).

Using this guide for Windows I fixed everything. Thanks anyway, the link can come handy someday.

Quick tip for mounting and unmounting the EFI partition in WIndows - open elevated Command Prompt (right-click and Run as Administrator) and use the following:

 

-for mounting

mountvol H: /s

this one will mount the EFI partition as H: (you may use whatever drive letter you want, as long as it's available).

 

for unmounting

mountvol H: /d

Oh damn it! I never thought that it would be possible to install Clover from Windows (until I happened to search for it and found this post). I was there man, Sierra was properly installed on its partition and booting, the only problem was I couldn't install Clover from it and booting from the USB would be hassle. Ironically I {censored}ed up the USB installation drive and spent the whole weekend trying to prepare it again, which is quite difficult since I don't have access to a Mac right now and I couldn't manage to run it on VirtualBox.... The only option left is to connect my old drive and boot Mac from there.

Nice work fusion71au!

 

I am looking for solution for dualboot, but first, short explanation what i have done till now:

 

My HW Specs:

 

 HP Z800 Workstation  BIOS V.3.60

2 x Intel® Xeon® processor X5650 2.66 GHz, 12MB cache 1333 MHz memory, 6-Core

24GB DDR3 RAM

GFX: Nvidia QUADRO 6000

Windows 10 on RAID0 LSILogic RAID SAS 1068E Controller ( 3 x 420GB SAS HD)

Backup SAS HD 1TB on LSILogic RAID SAS 1068E Controller

Sierra on Kingston 120GB SSDNow  on SATA port 1

 

First installed Win10 on RAID0 (LUN0). The Apple Xserves, possibly the Mac Pro RAID Card, use the LSI SAS1068E controller chip as well.

 Second installed OS-X Sierra on SSD  with Clover. Aplied EFI to Windows EFI Systempartition, but cannot boot in to the Windows!

Analyzing my system, I noticed that under the system information Sierra recognizes LSILogic RAID controller and single  HD 1TB connected on it, but does not recognize the Windows partition on raid0. Which leads to the conclusion that clover does not recognize Raid0. I spent time searching for a possible solution to identify Raid0 in sierra, but due to specific configuration of my system, there are not many solutions on the net.

 

I've been thinking about a solution to install the bootloader (Clover, or EasyBCD) on to Windows  EFI partition and boot from it, and to add OS-X Sierra as second entry.

 

Then I found this post and I think that would be the solution to my problem.

 

I have only one question:

If I install the  Clover on Windows efi partition, could come to conflict with Clover installed on the OS-X partition ?

 

PS: this is my first post on InsanelyMac after 6 years of hibernation, where a lot of things happened and changed. I'm glad to be back again and see how the "new kids on the block" rule the matter!

 

RESPECT!

Thanks for this guide @fusion71au this helped me finally solve my issue of only being able to boot from installer usb! :thumbsup_anim:   I used Clover 3333 because the newer versions didn't have the CLOVER folder (only pkg).  Btw love your Tintin avatar! :D

Just going to jump here: sadly EasyUEFI now requires a paid license to add/edit/remove UEFI entires, basically it's useless in its "Free" form.

      Hello All,
       
      It's been a while that I am trying to update my system to 10.15.16.
      The install seem to start, then at reboot time I only see the Normal boot and the Recovery option from the Clover boot menu.
      None of those 2 allow to complete the update.
       
      Is there any ways to force it to install and/or show the "Update" option on the Clover boot screen?
       
      PS: I'm using Z97-Gaming-3

      Pre-Installation
       
      I will not go through the basics since it is explained in details here on this site. Briefly, the process is to:
      Get Clover Get Catalina macOS installer Create USB with 2 MBR partitions (FAT32 for Clover and HFS+J for the installer)  
       
      Required kexts
      AppleALC.kext Lilu.kext RealtekRTL8111.kext VirtualSMC.kext WhateverGreen.kext  
       
      Config.plist
      I used the one provided by RehabMan called config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist. Download it from GitHub. It has almost everything you will need with only few edits for audio.
      Edits:
      [CPU] Make sure there is lilcpu=9 setting in boot arguments needed for Kaby Lake R CPU to be recognised correctly. [GPU] Make sure there is a patch GFX0 to IGPU under ACPI->DSDT [GPU] Under Devices->Properties->PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0) make sure that the AAPL,ig-platform-id value is 00001B59, and the device-id value is 16590000 [AUDIO] Under Devices->Properties->PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x1f,3) set the layout-id to 40 and the device-id to 70A10000 [SMBIOS] Set Mac model ID is iMac19,2  

       

       
      Notes
      For some reason with latest version of Clover the install partition was not visible. If you run into the same issue you can downgrade Clover to r5103, which worked perfectly. WiFi / BT Intel 3168 NGW needs to be replaced if one needs WiFi. Someone mentioned that to get HDMI work properly you may need to change AAPL,ig-platform-id value to 00001659 for PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x02,0) - not my case but may be considered if you get this issue. Don't forget to generate your serial and other SMBUS values before signing in with iCloud services.
