Possible problem with current OS installation

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

So basically I am planning to install MacOS Sierra sooner or later, but I have a feeling that my current installation (Windows 10 Pro & Ubuntu 16.04) are going to cause trouble, because of Ubuntu's GRUB loader. Both operating systems are installed in UEFI mode, and that's why I am also going to use the Clover loader for my installation. What I just simply wonder is that if GRUB is going to interfere or not.

 

Can I actually make a triple-boot with the current installation or do I have to get rid of Ubuntu and then reinstall it after I've got Clover?

Are they all on the same drive or separate?

I have windows 10, macOS Sierra and Ubuntu 16.04.1 installed on separate ssd's (well 2 ssd's and an intel m.2) and all boot perfectly with clover from my osx drive.

I boot to clover uefi, select os and it boots. When I select Ubuntu from clover it boots to grub then the os.

Nah, the current dual-boot installation is on one single SSD. But if you say is true that when you have Clover and you select Ubuntu at boot-up, then it should not be a problem at all I think. I take it that you had Windows 10 and Ubuntu installed already as well?

Yeah I did but as I said they are all on separate drives. Just make sure you have a clover usb driver handy to boot osx after and reinstall clover if needed.

      I will update first post with statuses of working features:

      Hello Insanelymac,
      I've successfully installed Mac OS X Sierra on 2 32gb flash drives with them as a JBOD Raid. I can only get into the hackintosh if I use another USB flash drive with Clover installed on it. I've tried using a clover installer however that just installs on my Raid Disk. I've also noticed that when I open clover configurator, there are 2 EFI partitions but both of them were empty. I've tried moving the contents of the EFI on my Raid disk that clover installed but my BIOS does not detect it. Also when I use the other flash drive to boot into clover, there is another volume called "BOOT OS X" right next to my Raid Disk Volume that I use to boot from. I just want to install and boot off of my Raid usb flash drives. Really running out of options, Thanks guys.

      Hi, so this is an issue I have put off for a while by just selecting the windows drive to boot.
      My Clover bootloader, UEFI, cannot load my Windows installations. Those are set to boot legacy, so I can understand that. But I cannot get legacy Clover working! When I install it to my drive and set that to boot, it just goes straight to the Windows installation. I think it has to do with the boot1 / 6 type error where it's just redirecting it to Windows, because that's all that happens.
       
      In Summation-
       
      UEFI Clover-can't boot Windows
      Legacy Clover-forwarded to another boot drive
       
      Something something active partition?
       
      Happy new year and thank you for your time, I appreciate any help!

      Hi there.

      Previously, I installed Mavericks and Mountain Lion with Niresh's Distros and worked well!

      I did shrink like 50gigs of storage for Mac installation, created usb with the help of instruction, changed bios settings, and were ready to rock with dual boot support and every time it worked out without an issue! Though I had my old pc that time. 

      But I guess, from EL Capitan, things got messier a bit. Now I have to erase things and install mac first and then windows for dual boot.
      Also, I bought new pc, so whole bios settings are new to me.

      Conclusion : I need the latest Hackintosh with proper dual boot with my Windows 10, and I don't want to format nor erase anything on my HDD, and don't wanna format my windows 10. my father does work on this pc, me too, so please make sure nothing goes wrong, no file losing stuff please. I don't have other HDD so please I need the help. I want to install the mac on this existing windows machine. I could barely format windows 10 drive 'C' only and after mac, I will install windows again, but make sure except drive: C, no other drives get any effect at all. 

      And also, as I said, my PC is new, telling the specs of this pc, so please mention the bios settings and drivers stuff if possible. Please help me with Bios settings at least if drivers are not possible.

      Motherboard: MSI B250M PRO-VH
      CPU: Core i3 7100 (7th gen)
      RAM: HyperX 8GB DDR4 2400mhz
      HDD: 500GB SATA [GPT Partition]
      GPU: Nvidia 1050 TI 4GB
      Monitor : ASUS VP228 (1920x1080 Resolution)

      Another thing, I have ps2 keyboard, will it be ok? 

      Please help. Thanks.
