Thanks, deleting the boot menu will break other OS installations. May prevent booting at all on some systems.

Sorry, I've removed this *.efi before (on last r4716 test) and it still changed bootloader orders.

OK, I'll try again with r4717.

you can't see BootOrder nnvram in macos. cleannvram.efi remove BootOrder nvram value and other from filter that has Boot####.

it affects our clover boot option entry in BIOS. 

 

after press f11, my nvram result(aptiomemoryfix, vitrualsmc). it's very clean status.

OK, not a big issue for me since I have "Boot entry" options on my Aptio BIOS (firmware) and could be re-ordered easily.

my peonix bios laptop, i did lost clover boot option(initialized) if BootOrder was removed. only boot windows. so i added boot entry again in bios.

your bios is good. anyways removing the nvram value associated with the boot is not currently the best option.

thanks

4717 still hard froze twice when pressing F11. Will boot to 10.14 then reboot and try again.

Edit: Still hard freeze

American Megatrends BIOS Vendor

Aptio Setup Utility.

Boot option no longer removed and order not changed.

Cleared?

Yeah, same as @SavageAUS for r4717.. it cleared NVRAM properly, though Clover freeze immediately when pressing "F11" key. Boot Entries are still there (previous r4716 actually, not only changed bootloader entries order, but removed them #LoL).

little freeze happen when removing nvram values. but after freezing, your system have to reboot. if hold on freezing option long time, it's problem.

It does not say which disk the EFI partition belongs to anywhere.

 

It does say EFI on Install or EFI on High Sierra HD in Mount EFI section

But it does not say what drive does the EFI partition belongs to nor which which drive does the config.plist belongs

 

not in acquired configurations list

I have created empty folders on each EFI partition with names which tell which is which. 

 

It is not right. It should be visible in Clover too. You should be able to tell which config.plist you are editing.

At least make the disk volume folder name e.g. EFI on Install instead of EFI 3...

Sorry, I don't get what's your point. How did you get lots of EFI Partitions?

Anyway, I usually use only 1 EFI (with Clover Bootloader inside) on a mach with Multibooting. On my case, I created GPT partition map for another Disks with gParted (or similar 3rd party apps) so it didn't create new EFI. But if you're referring to Clover Configurator.app, this question should be addressed to @mackie100.

I am sorry that you do not understand how because you only use one disk in your computer.

 

I however use several. And I can potentially have an EFI partition on USB drive.

 

It is completely clear that there can be and in my case there are several HDDs and several EFIs from the first screen in my post. 

 

Did you look at my question before answering it?

      buon giorno 
      spero tu mi possa aiutare ,perche' non riesco piu' a far partire i miei 2 ssd 850 samsung sui quali highsierra funzionava perfettamente da 1 anno e non ce' maniera di farlo ripartire .unica cosa e' che riesco ad arrivare alla console dell'istaller e ho tentato varie volte di ripristinare da una time machine che ho salvato su un altro disco usb .
      il mio sistema e' un asus p5qd turbo ed e7500 dual core . grafica gtx1050 chr funzionava con accelerazione e webdriver nvidia .audio voodoo 282. e boot clover che e' sempre stato il 5103 che poi  ho aggiornato a 5120 proprio il giorno prima che succedesse il fattaccio .quel giorno ho aggiornato dal sito apple la comboupdate 10.13 .6 da 10.13.4 .e qui al riavvio boom niente diski in clover nn li visualizzava piu .ora sciacciando f3 visualizzo il preboot e lssd con highsierra aggiornato ma arrivato alla console andava in reset loop .
      a questo punto riesco a ripartire togliendo l'accelerazione .e installando i nuovi webdriver di nvidia aggiornati all 10.13.6 .
      al riavvio non parte piu' con accelerazione e sempre problema in clover dei diski ma riuscivo a partire con f3 e preboot .
      ora decido di installare da time machine e tornare alla versione 10.13.4 del giorno prima ..e al riavvio niente piu dischi ne preboot .sono fermo a questo punto ..riesco solo a far partire installer ma nn so i comandi da dare in terminal per aggiustare le cose . ho anche linux su un altro notebook. ti ringrazio anticipatamente per l'aiuto .

      So, here's what i think clover do when it patch ati framebuffer, first it read a cached kext, then it search the original hex value of the connector, then it changed the value with the new one. Is it correct? now, here's what i find confusing... let's say that i want to patch AMD7000Controller.kext, in that kext, i want to patch "AJI" framebuffer with a new value, so clover try to find the hex value of "AJI" connector then replace it with the new one, simple right? but when i search the AMD7000Controller binary file for other framebuffer, some of them didn't exist in the binary, for example, i tried to patch "Ramen" framebuffer, from various source, it said that:
      Ramen (6) @ 0xeba70 LVDS, HDMI, DP, DP, DP, DP 020000000001000039050108000000002001050600000000 000800000402000000010200000000001000030500000000 000400000403000000010343000000001102010100000000 000400000001000000010431000000002103040300000000 000400000403000000010563000000001204020200000000 000400000001000000010651000000002205040300000000 So i open a hex editor and search for:
      020000000001000039050108000000002001050600000000000800000402000000010200000000001000030500000000000400000403000000010343000000001102010100000000000400000001000000010431000000002103040300000000000400000403000000010563000000001204020200000000000400000001000000010651000000002205040300000000 but, it turns out that hex editor couldnt find that hex value in AMD7000Controller,

       
      most of the framebuffer exist in the AMD7000Controller, but some doesnt, If this is the case, then, where does clover find the original framebuffer to be patched? am i missing something?

      Lenovo T460 macOS with Clover Guide
      Latest Release on GitHub (July 2020) Updated to Clover r5120 Updated Lilu based kexts - Lilu, ALC, WEG Added AirportBrcmFixup.kext
        Various Tweaks over Last months The main branch in my github repo is a complete Clover ESP (/EFI) bundle and kext pack for the Lenovo T460. The current file bundle seems to work on Sierra, HighSierra, Mojave and Catalina. There is an OpenCore branch in the repo as an alternative to Clover. This guide was developed for a Clover implementation. But the thread has evolved to include discussion of both Clover and Opencore for these systems: T460 and T470 family of ThinkPads.
       
      Full Clover file set - config.plist etc. Includes all custom kexts Includes custom DSDT/SSDT scripts and patches Utility scripts The zip bundles are posted to GitHub: https://github.com/tluck/Lenovo-T460-Clover/releases
      Caveat: The T460 systems used here was configured with: i5-6300U, Intel HD Graphics 520, 1920x1080 touch screen. If you have a different system model, then extract the ACPI files and use the included scripts to create a set of files consistent with your system type and BIOS version. See below for details.
      Credits: RehabMan, Shmilee, vusun123, TimeWalker, Mieze from which, much of their work and help is/was was used to get the T460 to this point.
      Devices and aspects working:
      Ethernet -  Intel I219LM is enabled via IntelMausiEthernext.kext WiFi/BT - substitute the Intel WiFi/BT with a compatible Broadcom or Atheros chip Audio - ALC293 codec implemented via AppleALC.kext (the old AppleHDA_ALC293 and CodecCommander kexts are not needed) PS2 - ClickPad + TrackPoint + all 3 buttons - using a modified VoodooPS2Controller to support new layouts - and added some custom Fn key maps based on 440/450 dsdt USB - implemented via custom SSDT + USBInjectAll kext. All USB3/USB2 ports are intel-based and work -  3 external USB and internal Camera, BT, etc  Sleep/Wake - the sleepwatcher package and custom sleep/wake scripts are used to help with sleep/wake for BT and PS2 devices. Note: have not tried to implement the SD card reader - no driver found.
      ACPI Files
      New Installation - Steps and Details

      Part 2- Post OS Installation and Setup

      *Put the script into its own folder as it will create other folders*
      What is BTB?
      Script file to clone and help build Clover or Opencore repos
      Script will create link to itself in /usr/local/bin/bob
      Script SHOULD fix up any stray bobs you may have.
      Then you only need to type bob. and a parameter
      "a" for ACID repo, official
      "d" for ACID repo DUET build
      "c" for CLOVER
      "e" to erase UDK Folder
      Easier typing bob than.....usual stuff
      YOU WILL NEED TO cmod+x THE SCRIPT
      Enjoy
