Atom x7 z8750 and bootloader

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to boot an OSX (macOS) install (El Capitan or Yosemite) on a GPD Pocket.


It has an Atom x7 z8750 intel processor and an UEFI bios.


I've prepared an installation USB key as usual with MBR and two partition - EFI and install_osx partition.


I've used createmedia to make the bootable USB drive as always.


When i try to boot from USB i only get a black screen.

Clover won't load at all. No logo, no splash. No errors.

Can't do anything. 


I've searched a bit on Google and found a flag to write debug log files on usb but it doesn't work. No files are written.

Laptop just hang on black screen (backlight on) and do nothing as i select my UEFI usb drive as boot device.


There is anything i can do to just arrive at least to the boot screen?


I've tried latest Clover version and some random old version just to be sure that wasn't a bug introduced lately for my architecture (that's pretty new...)

Version tried:






There are bootloader more convenient to boot on Atom devices?


I'm new to patched kernel so i need to patch kernel to get Clover run ?


Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
