Already done.

What Clover version you mean?

@grayen

 

I had an experience to boot macOS and Windows 7 Pro 64bit UEFI on GPT formatted disk on legacy-BIOS computer with Core2Duo CPU by Clover. It is possible as you said. I don't know if Windows 10 required something more.

I mean make Clover boot like BIOS, if Clover can't find macOS installer to update. It'll boot into macOS partition, it'll make update easier. Also, I'm using the latest.

Clover can find macOS installer to update. Thousands users do update this way.

Show your preboot.log where can we look on all partitions and loaders.

STATIC CHAR16 *OSXInstallerPaths[] = {
  L"\\Mac OS X Install Data\\boot.efi",
  L"\\macOS Install Data\\boot.efi",
  L"\\macOS Install Data\\Locked Files\\Boot Files\\boot.efi",
  L"\\OS X Install Data\\boot.efi",
  L"\\.IABootFiles\\boot.efi"
};

No, I mean we have an option to set default boot volume right? But it only boots into 1 volume, sometimes I need to update macOS. App Store will create another volume of macOS Install or something, anyway I can make Clover boot into macOS install first like BIOS. If Clover can't find macOS install then it'll boot into second default boot volume like macOS system

slice I think what he wants is that after an apple update clover use boot next to automatically finish the os update install instead of having to manually select the updater volume from clover gui

You are right, that way I can set App Store to update macOS automatically

I started macOS as usual then I see update in AppStore and click OK. 

macOS loads update, begins it and then restarted into "macOS install". 

It is already happens.

I can't set "BootNext" variable because Clover is not working during this process.

I mean, we have Default Boot Volume to help Clover to boot into "that partition" when you Clover starting. I set it to my macOS volume, it works perfectly but when I try to update to some macOS version. App Store will create a volume name "macOS install" right, so what I asking for is can you make more option like Default Boot Volume 2, 3,... If Clover can't find the first Default Boot Volume 1, it'll boot into Default Boot Volume 2. It'll make we update macOS easier

OK, I understand.

I have DefaultBootVolume=LastBootedVolume. As far as I remember it automatically switched to update.

But it didn't switch back to my macOS partition. If I have more option, Clover will switch to update when I reboot from App Store. Or if Clover can't find that update partition, it'll switch back to my macOS partition. That's simple

My case, Single SSD

High Sierra Vol name = Macintosh HD

DefaultBootVolume = Macintosh HD in config

Timeout 3 in config

 

Update from appstore, clover automatically enter high sierra installer(macOS install Macintosh HD). After install update, there is no installer in GUI, and enter Macintosh HD.

Mine too

1 SSD, macOS High Sierra vol name = macOS (same with DefaultBootVolume)

Timeout = 5

Clover still boot into macOS even Clover found macOS install when I try to update

Strange. In my case. There is no problem that i mentioned above.

 

On my laptop, i can't use lastvolumename option. So i selected mac partition name for defaultvolumename.

On some more recent HP UEFI implementations (including the Spectre x360 and Envy x360's) Clover is unable to boot OS X without a workaround. HP's UEFI loads some sort of touch keyboard (likely indicative of a debug mode), and when OS X is loaded boot.efi will hang and never proceed. No kernel panic occurs, boot.efi simply does not start loading. This problem can be resolved by chainloading clover from a text only bootloader (grub works, secure boot workarounds like Preloader.efi work best), or by modifying the source code of clover. The issue is something left over from rEFIt, as rEFInd also loads the touch keyboard. It appears that the function

BOOLEAN ReadAllKeyStrokes(VOID)

is broken. When the function body is commented and the function is modified to only return false, like so:

BOOLEAN ReadAllKeyStrokes(VOID)
{
    //problem code
    /*
    BOOLEAN       GotKeyStrokes;
    EFI_STATUS    Status;
    EFI_INPUT_KEY key;
    
    GotKeyStrokes = FALSE;
    for (; {
        Status = gST->ConIn->ReadKeyStroke (gST->ConIn, &key);
        if (Status == EFI_SUCCESS) {
            GotKeyStrokes = TRUE;
            continue;
        }
        break;
    }
    return GotKeyStrokes;*/
    return FALSE;
}

Clover does not encounter the touch keyboard issue and loads OSX successfully with no workarounds. I believe that something in this method triggers HP's UEFI to enter a type of debug mode and load the touch keyboard. Any ideas on how this method could be fixed to prevent this error?

A typo from time ago

in clover bootmenu / options / PCI Devices

 

custom properies should be custom properties?

probably you mean this...

 

menu.c

NewEntry(&Entry, &SubScreen, ActionEnter, SCREEN_DEVICES, "Custom properies->");
and yes is a typo... should be "Custom properties->"

Dear devs,

 

I just realized that I need to use "-DANDX86" everytime on buildclover script to make PhoenixOS && RemixOS (Android-x86) detected by Clover bootloader.

 

If possible.. May I propose these flags to be true, so Clover detects Android-x86 based OSes by default? Thanks.

 

 

#!ifdef ANDX86
  DEFINE ANDX86_FLAG = -DANDX86
#!endif

I think it is possible because I see no reason why not. 

It was added conditionally because no one need it.

Yes is a simple html with inline css, and the last one as you show is... conclusion.html

      Budget Workstation MacOS 10.14.1 build: z370 AORUS Gaming 5 - i5-8600K - RX 580 - UHD 630
      flawless iGPU/dGPU integration, fast FCPX editing/rendering, great overall performance for ~$1200 / ~£1000
       
      Update: updated WhateverGreen and Lilu, then updated OS to 10.14.3 and everything is fine! Even iMessage, which previously I hadn't been able to make work, is now working - possibly the update flushed the NVRAM?
       
      I'm gonna come straight out and admit it - I used newb tools which are considered taboo on InsanelyMac, and so this isn't so much an installation guide as it is a green flag to anyone considering the same hardware. My first and previous Hackintosh project was just over ten years ago and this site was massively helpful, so this is my (very small) way of giving back.

      http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=97606131925137056003
       
      HARDWARE
      CPU: Intel i5-8600K 3.6GHz hexacore (contains UHD 630 iGPU)
      CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim (no paste needed, and fan facing front)
      Mobo: GIGABYTE z370 AORUS Gaming 5 (WIFI)
      RAM: 1x 8GB CORSAIR Vengeance LPX C16 2666MHz (in first slot)
      GFX Card: Sapphire RX 580 NITRO+ SE
      SATA: used ports 0, 1, 3, 5 (HDD problems when connected to port 4)
      HDD: generic
      DVD Drive: generic
      PSU: EVGA 500W Semi Modular (but you should get 650W!)
      Case: CoolerMaster CM590 III
      Fans: 2x stock case fans (one sucky on front, one blowy on back), 3x be quiet! BL046 120mm fans (two blowy on top, one sucky on front). Airflow near-perfectly balanced.
       
      ADVICE
      With the Clover configuration, you want to pay close attention to all things relating to graphics. There are some specific settings for ACPI, Boot, Devices and Graphics which should be copied exactly in order to get the iGPU and dGPU to work in perfect harmony. For instance, make sure you use ig-platform-id 59120003 rather than 59120000 if you want FCPX to be usable. With the right settings, FCPX will not only run, but run flawlessly.
       
      I was not able to figure out how to make NVRAM/PRAM behave itself, and I got errors when I tried to issue relevant commands. As a result, I could not at first get iMessage to work properly. It worked once on my first installation attempt but not from subsequent attempts. This Clover configuration therefore has no consideration whatsoever toward iMessage reliability - however, iMessage ended up working somehow, anyway - I noticed it after I'd updated to 10.14.3 but this may just have been coincidence.
       
      Onboard WiFi does not work. There is no driver for it. I'm using wired ethernet to a bridge router as it was cheaper than getting a compatible PCI card.
       
      Audio is working well after I installed the z370 audio patch, then the ALC1220 codecs, then AppleALC.
       
      With kexts for generic 3rd party SATA and generic 3rd party eSATA, my HDDs and DVD drive work perfectly well.
       
      Sleep/Wake functions run perfectly. iCloud functions run perfectly. Shutdown leaves the mobo LEDs on, annoyingly.
       
      My USB 3 ports seem to suffer from low power output, and I don't know why.
       
      Overall, this system appears to run about as well under MacOS 10.14 Mojave as it does under Windows 7. I would solidly recommend this build to anyone looking to build a computer for workstation purposes, on a budget.

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.
      Appreciate ! Acer 5750 Official Page

      Since rev 4844 Vector Themes are supported and there are ready-to-use Clovy by Clovy, cesium by Slice and BGM_SVG by Blackosx.
      You may see it's structure to create own theme
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
       
      Now I want to add vector graphics support in Clover. See rev 4560 and later.
      It is not working yet but designers may begin to create Vector Themes.
      It supposed to consist of SVG elements and has design size. It will be rendered to any screen size scaled from design size.
       
      What application in macOS can create SVG graphics?
      Inkscape is not working in macOS 10.11+. Pity.
      LibreOffice Draw works with SVG but buggy.
      Boxy SVG cost 10$ but looks good enough. It creates the best in simplicity files and have more then enough features.
      Illustrator is good but expensive.
       
      How to improve SVG file?
      Clover has restricted support for SVG. It is your job to make compatible file and as small as possible to speedup rendering.
      Some helps:
      Help:Inkscape – From invalid to valid SVG Inkscape files
      From invalid to valid SVG Adobe Illustrator files
      From invalid to valid SVG files of other editors: BKchem, ChemDraw and CorelDRAW
      Help:Illustrator – Assistance with creating and saving SVG images in Adobe Illustrator that will pass W3C validation
      User:Quibik/Cleaning up SVG files manually
      Later I will write own instructions specific to Clover abilities.
       
      How to create SVG fonts?
      You can google to find ready-to-use SVG fonts.  I found some problems with too beaty fonts: slow rendering and overflow crash. Be careful.
      You can get ttf or otf fonts and convert them into svg by using online WEB services. Not a problem to google.
      But then I want to find a way to simplify the font to reduce a size and speedup rendering.
      You can create own font by FontForge It is opensource and available for Windows, Mac and GNU+Linux. It creates otf font which you can convert to svg font.
