Section 1:

How to make Clover default bootloader after Installing Windows on UEFI.


If you installed windows on you Hackintosh and now you don’t have access to your macOS anymore this guide will help you to get back the clover as the main bootloader.

The reason that this is happening is because when you install windows after installing macOS the UEFI bootloader will change from:

\EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI (Clover bootloader)
to
\EF\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi


So, in order to make clover the default bootloader again you need to edit the UEFI boot entries and change the boot media file from “bootmgrfw.efi” to “BOOTX64.EFI” and here is how to do that.

I personally use BOOTICEx64 which is for 64Bit version of windows and if you use 32Bit version of Windows you need to use the x86 version.

Original Download Source
Alternative download link.

Here is what you need to do:

1. Open BOOTICE and from the tabs on the top select “UEFI”

2. Click “Edit Boot Entries” button

3. From UEFI boot entries select “Windows Boot Manager”

4. From “Boot entry configurations” change “Menu Title” from “Windows Boot Manager” to whatever name that you like, I changed mine to “macOS Sierra” because that’s the version of the macOS that I have and from “Media file” change “​\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi” to “\EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI” and finally select “Boot this entry next time”
Now save the new entries by clicking “Save current boot entry”

5. By clicking the “Save current boot entry” you will see the confirmation window. Click ok and you’re done.

6. Now restart your computer and now you will see Clover’s boot menu and boot into macOS.

Section 2:

Here’s how to create a custom entry to rename the Boot Microsoft EFI Boot from EFI to "Windows 10"

1. Open clover configurator and select GUI

2. Click the + sign to add a new Boot entry.

3. From the Volume drop down menu select the EFI partition that has the “Microsoft” boot files. In my case it is the EFI (disk2)

4. Add your desired name for the new custom entry like “Windows 10” or whatever you like, Click the “Title / FullTitle” check box.
Select the type of the Operating system that you are creating the custom entry for which again in this case it is Windows and then select the volume type which is an internal disk in this case.

5. Save you settings and reboot. If you have done exactly as instructed here then you will see the new entry in the clover’s boot menu.

It has a builtin app for mounting the EFI/ESP partition on the first menu called "Parts Manage" super handy

It's ok :)

I tested it on an administrator account and it works without a problem, if it fails on a normal user account you can easily run the app with "Run as Administrator" option.

 

I hope that answers your question. ;)

@cyberdevs hi,

 

Please help?

 

I tested the Mac and Windows 10 installation. Everything OK, even the macOS Sierra is now running.

 

I am interested in if it is possible to rename "Boot Microsoft EFI Boot from EFI to "Boot Microsoft EFI Boot from Windows 10"

 

Picture:

 

http://shrani.si/f/1K/TP/31gJsv0Z/rename.png

I think you need to create a custom boot entry for that.

hello again

idk that mount esp partition. where is button for mount esp?

 

i tested boot entry edit. its great and simple.

You need to select the ESP/EFI partition and choose "Assign Drive Letter" then it will be mounted and you can open it in "My Computer" or "This PC".

Is that what you are looking for?

Very powerful and useful tool.  I've also used it to install legacy Clover in Windows but prefer EasyUEFI to manage my UEFI entries in Windows  :).

 

@luky35,

Find out the partition UUID of your Windows 10 EFI volume with diskutil info command eg

 

 

fusion71aus-MacBook-Pro:~ fusion71au$ diskutil list
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *500.1 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:                  Apple_HFS Macintosh HD            121.0 GB   disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s3
   4:       Microsoft Basic Data WIN10                   334.7 GB   disk0s4
   5:           Windows Recovery                         471.9 MB   disk0s5
   6:           Linux Filesystem                         38.7 GB    disk0s6
   7:                 Linux Swap                         4.3 GB     disk0s7
fusion71aus-MacBook-Pro:~ fusion71au$ diskutil info disk0s1 | grep UUID
   Volume UUID:              0E239BC6-F960-3107-89CF-1C97F78BB46B
   Disk / Partition UUID:    CEAC492C-192E-458A-B820-B4C13AA5E281

 

 

 

then create a custom entry for it in GUI section of config.plist (put what you want to display on screen under "Title" or "FullTitle").  Clover configurator makes it easier....

 

 

@Sherlocks

I use Windows Task Manager to browse the EFI partition after assigning a letter to it with Diskpart or Mountvol /s.

Thanks for your input :)

 

I have been using EasyUEFI but there was a problem with using it on Windows 10 Enterprise Edition which it wasn't supported if I recall correctly; and ever since I found this little app (BootICE) I got hooked :D

I also used EasyBCD but BootICE is the best (IMHO) ;)

No Rename Boot EFI to Boot Windows 10.

Follow the instructions that @fusion71au kindly provided here.

 

The reason for this manual is that because couple of people (including yourself ;)) asked me how to fix a dual boot problem so I decided to create this topic and I hope it will be a good reference for all of our members of this great community ;)

 

@luky35

Just updated the first post with the instructions on how to use clover to create/add a custom entry for Windows 10.

How to easily hide unwanted partitions in clover's boot menu without having to create the custom entries:

You can use clover configurator to easily hide the partitions that you don't what to see on your clover's boot menu.

1. Open your config.plist with clover configurator and select GUI.

f20b2f49363eaa06455a9a72086c4152.png

2. On the top right corner you'll see a box called "Hide Volume", all you have to do is to click on the + sign to add a new entry. The entry you add must be exactly the same as the name of the partition that you want to hide. For example if you want to hide the recovery partition of your macOS you need to add "Recovery HD" and save the config. By adding this entry the "Recovery HD" will be hidden on clover's boot menu, remember if you have more than one version of macOS installed on you hackintosh all recovery partitions will be hidden.

@cyberdevs hi,

 

This is great, only I can not change the subtitles for Preboot and Recovery, so I'm waiting for what @ fusion71au will say.

      Hello all,
       
      I'm about to build a hackintosh and want to share my findings in that process. Also maybe get some help. 
       
      The goal is to have a fast Mac with large disk capacity for image processing and a Windows gaming machine at the same time. The components I chose:
      MSI Z390 Gaming plus i5 9600K 6cores with HD630 graphics 2x8GB Crucial DDR4-2666 nVidia GTX650 Ti (will be replaced later by Vega or Navi card) 1TB Samsung 970 Evo plus NVMe + 4TB WD blue Disk as fusion drive  
      What is working:
      Windows boots and games run. Installation was a bit tricky:
      the GTX650 has no UEFI Disk partition has to be GPT since it should be shared between Windows and OSX Windows only installs on a GPT drive if the setup is purely UEFI. I ended up with a 2 screen setup with the secondary monitor on the HD630 being the boot display. The Windows driver uses the GTX650 without problems. 
      Disabling CSM is important, on MSI this is hidden under the odd entrance "Windows 8.1/10 WHQL Support" that has to be enabled(!). 
       
      Booting and Installing OSX from USB stick. I found this post most useful as a starting point. After some trial and error I managed to boot with the HD630 into the installer
      The board has bios version 7B51v14, the most recent is not working (will check again when the system runs without error) Clean up EFI folder, update clover, apfs.efi (from osx installation). Clover folder is attached. Onboard ethernet is working with IntelMausiEthernet V2.4.0  
       
      Not working (TODO list): 
      Fusion drive: Mojave does not support fusion drives. Instead, the installer tries to convert a fusion drive to apfs which, since Mojave, has a similar feature. From command line, I can create a apfs "fusion drive" with some modified commands:
      (will supply later)
      However: I seems that afp is buggy when it has to share the disks with other partitions. The plan was to have Windows too on the SSD and a common transfer partition on the spinning disk. Setup of the "fusion drive" was fine, but the installer always crashes without message, presumably in the moment it tries to access the disk. At the moment OSX is installed on a separate disk, will continue to investigate.
       
      HD630: No acceleration, 6MB video memory
      GTX650: No output at all, but card is shown in profiler. Thought it would be supported ootb.
      Speedstep: CPU power usage around 8W in idle.

      USB3

      For Wi-Fi:
      - 1st method:You can choose an external USB wifi dongle (I used TP-Link Archer T1U (5GHz support), TP-Link has official macOS drivers, you just need to install it
      -2nd and I think the best method:Replace your M.2 Qualcomm Card with a compatible BCM94352Zcard (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareData.kext, BrcmPatchRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext, FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext, they're all in my attached zip). You could buy this card from ebay, aliexpress, or amazon

      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode:UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the install zip (bootpack & postinstall): Click here -> acer_aspire_v591g_installfiles.zip
      Installation:
      - Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager)
      - Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder
      - Boot with the Installer USB
      - If you stuck in boot, reboot and in the Clover bootloader select "config_debug.cfg" -> you'll have more informations about the freeze
       
      Please open the README.rtf in my install zip for more informations about the USB Installer & Post installation!
      If you have a single RAM and getting panic at boot, then you need to edit the "config.plist" with these (SMBIOS->after "Version 1.0"):
      ->Edit "Frequency" and "Size" to match your RAM values
      <key>Version</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>Memory</key> <dict> <key>Channels</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SlotCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Modules</key> <array> <dict> <key>Slot</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>Size</key> <integer>8192</integer> <key>Frequency</key> <integer>2133</integer> <key>Type</key> <string>DDR4</string> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>  
      PowerManagement  fix:
      Set HWPEnable=YES in Clover (already set), CPUFloor to "700", Frequency to "2300" and "3200"(Normal and Turbo, if you have i7-6700HQ version then it should be "2600", "3500") and "FrequencyVectors" from "0x0d000000" to "0x07000000" in "S/L/E/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/X86PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/Mac-A5C67F76ED83108C.plist", MSR _xcpm_idle Patch to KernelToPatch in Clover (If you have High Sierra, change "MatchOS" to 10.13):

      <key>KernelToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>MSR 0xE2 _xcpm_idle instant reboot(c) Pike R. Alpha</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> ILniAAAADzA= </data> <key>MatchOS</key> <string>10.14</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ILniAAAAkJA= </data> </dict> </array> Reboot, and it's 800MHz in idle state, same on Windows.
       

       
      Before updating to a new version of Mojave please update kexts (and clover if necessary) to newer versions to avoid kernel panics.
      Generate a serial number with Clover Configurator.app (open up your config.plist with CC then -> SMBIOS -> Serial Number -> Generate New)
      Mojave & Windows 10 Dual-Boot:
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive), UEFI Only:
       
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac),   Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,  Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install.   Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       5.  You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive), UEFI Only:
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      I created a video from this restore method: [Hackintosh] Dual-Boot High Sierra & Windows - when Windows already installed - no data waste - UEFI
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (link is in my video's description).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
       Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.  Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.  Restore from image: select your full system restore image.  When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.  When you successfully booted to Mac desktop, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), open EFI, you will see there is a Microsoft folder already (don't touch that!). Copy my CLOVER folder to the EFI folder then Restart.  Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:  bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi       7.  You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (Only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      - Make sure you have partitions in GPT
      - Windows using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. Don't worry, just ignore the errors.
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      - Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)
       
      IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found):
      - It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem)
      - You also could "mount" the EFI from Windows:
      1st method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      diskpart
      list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4)
      sel vol 4
      list part(Select System type partition, for example 2)
      sel part 2
      assign letter=b(This will "mount" your EFI partition)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI)
      2nd method: open cmd in administrator mode and type:
      mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI)
      Open Explorer++ or TotalCommander in administrator mode to manage EFI
      mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)
      Thanks to all OSXLatitude members for helping me out! (Jake Lo, Hervé, Bronxteck, black.dragon74)!
      Notes:

      Microsoft introduced new feature on Windows 10 19H1 (1903) named "Reserved Storage" that is enabled by default.
      As they've stated:
       
       
      Though this is useful feature according to Microsoft, but consider about one thing: "Disk Space". This one is different with "Microsoft Reserved Partition" (MSR), on my case it took more than 7GB on Windows partition. Also different with `DISM.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase`.
       

       
      Yeah, you could get big Storage with cheap price nowadays.
      But on some conditions, when you get "Low Disk" and want to disable this feature.. here's how:
       
      1. Run Registry Editor: Win+R, type: `regedit`
      2. Navigate to:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ReserveManager 3. Select "ReserveManager" - Right Click - Choose "Export". Save it on your local disk for "Safety".
      You probably need it when error occurred
       
      4. Now change to these values:
      BaseHardReserveSize : 0 BaseSoftReserveSize : 0 HardReserveAdjustment : 1 MinDiskSize : 0 PassedPolicy : 0 ShippedWithReserves : 0 TiAttemptedInitialization : 0 // Alternatively, double click "ReservedStorage-Disable-W10-19H1.reg" from attachment
      ReservedStorage-Disable-W10-19H1.reg.zip
       
      5. Restart Windows. Once you reach Desktop, you'll get more Free Space on System Partition.
      It maybe need a moment to populate Disk Space at the 1st time, check Windows Explorer.
