Let me second that real quick, utter rubbish, please stop spreading FUD. The kext data to link, i.e. the executable and the Info.plist, are put in a buffer that resides in the booter's Device Tree memory, then it is picked up by the kernel from there and linked into the kernel space, as any kext is. The mechanism used to inject kexts now is literally the Apple mechanism to boot without kextcache several versions ago.


I'm not a computer engineer, so please don't be aggressive. I understand what you and the others explained. I've been building hackintoshes for me and friends for about ten years, so I have no interest in spreading rubbish, nor am I naive enough to not be able to understand the meaning and implications of choices like this one, of a kext, flag or whatever. 
Sadly, I have no time to further discuss this, given that I've been experiencing random and quite fast KP reboots once or twice a day. The system never had a single issue, literally the only change I made this month was moving all my kexts from L/E to Extra, but I'm sure there is no relation: post hoc ergo propter hoc, right? This is going off-topic though, sorry for that.

Yeah, no problem because this will be the last time I respond. No one said you were a computer engineer but I'm going to go ahead and say you have completely no idea what you are talking about. You've been building hackintoshes for ten years?? But yet you don't even know how clover works, also that clover doesn't even have an Extra folder, that you don't even know how to see what is causing the panic and fix it, that installing to /L/E is stupid for any kext you need to boot, because you won't be able to run the installer to upgrade, and also some kexts do not work properly if they are not injected, so no idea what you mean. No one said inject all your kexts, in fact I am now explicitly stating it to you for the FOURTH time, INJECT KEXTS THAT ARE NEEDED TO BOOT OR REQUIRE INJECTION AND PROPERLY INSTALL THE REST. For the sake of everyone in the world's sanity, stop reading tonymac! That website is full of trash and misinformation, and why every other hackintosh site literally will remove anything to do with that site, and even ban you for repeatedly doing it. Not to mention that you are far more likely to be banned from that site for just saying something inane than anywhere I have ever seen. I just googled install unsigned kexts and found several guides that literally are almost word for word copies, it's like no one there can actually do anything but look at the same site and make the same posts with the same wrong information. They don't even have consistent information, I will go over that below because I see this exact same block of text in multiple places on that site and it is wrong. Also, I really hope you don't use any of those tools from that site because you have absolutely no idea what they do and they sign stuff with an actual developer certificate so they can pretty much install any sort of malware and you'd have absolutely no idea unless you knew what to look for, which it's obvious you would not. And hilariously those tools are all available from the actual developers, tonymac just steals everything to make advertising money off unsuspecting people like yourself. There's very little useful information on that site and I only trust two people because I know that they research and go else where too, Rehabman and Toleda.

 

The previous three times, I stated to inject kexts needed for booting and that don't work unless injected:

 

Destroying this idiotic statement I see all over tonymac:

Injected Kexts live outside of "protected MacOS memory" *
...
* Note: I use the term "protected MacOS memory" in this guide as a generic descriptive term. In reality kext's installed in /L/E are loaded into MacOS's kernel memory which is 'protected' (IE: segregated) form application memory and execution memory. Everything running in kernel memory (including kexts) is actively managed and monitored by MacOS.

Doesn't realize that every kext must be in kernel memory or it couldn't work, also how would it be extending the kernel if it wasn't? You know, the main purpose of a kernel extension....? Every kext no matter what is placed into kernel memory.

Injecting a large amount of kexts can result in an unstable system.

This is somewhat true, but unless you have very little memory (less than the requirement for macOS) it's most likely not going to be any issue since at most this may be a few hundred MBs (which even that is extremely high and you are probably more likely injecting somewhere around a few to maybe tens of MBs). You actually have a higher chance of having too many devices cause more memory problems than this, also newer aptio fix helps alleviate this issue by placing the kernel in any random position that is still available for KASLR.

Many 3rd party kexts will not work correctly when injected by Clover.

Then it doesn't need injected. The only reason to inject kexts is to boot and because they need to be loaded and initialized before other kexts that are in the kernelcache, especially ones that are prioritized by the kernel.

 

EDIT: I forgot that the kext doesn't work because you injected the kext before its prerequisite kexts were initialized. If you force load those prereq kexts it will work, however you now run the risk of one of the injection only kexts that patch any of those kexts to possibly fail to do so.

Injected Kexts are not included in the kernel cache and thus are excluded form MacOS error checking.

I don't even know how to respond to this. This is just so utterly stupid. First, every kext is loaded by the kernel, checked, and initialized, no matter what. This scenario here would be equivalent to using kextload to only load a kext temporarily, it's not in the cache but it's certainly in kernel memory and checked....

Installing kexts in /Library/Extensions is the Apple endorsed and recommended location for all 3rd Party kexts.

Ok, that's wonderful, and has absolutely nothing to do with how to boot macOS because you can't really do that without injecting kexts or making special installers every time and constantly installing kexts every time you use the installer...

If you purchase a piece of hardware that requires the installation of a manufactures MacOS driver, the kexts will be installed in /Library/Extensions so why treat hackingtosh kexts any different ?

Because a hackintosh IS different, if it wasn't, clover would not be needed in the first place. You can install stuff into /L/E all day but if you need that kext to boot, because of my last point it's not really that helpful is it...?

 

EDIT: Typos.

 

EDIT2: I totally forgot about RampageDev, where he removed his posts from tonymac because they were being jerks, so they sent a DMCA request against his site because it had the same information. Or Mieze (who wrote like every network driver) got banned for pointing out that one of the drivers from tonymac was from an open source linux GPL driver, which requires the source code to be released and they refused. Why would they do that? Probably because it does something that they don't want people to know about. Not to mention literally everything on the site is stolen, modified(?), and closed sourced, which is pretty much against the license of almost every project. In fact, they are currently violating the clover license as well as they actually are not allowed to use the name of the project or authors without the written consent of the project.

There's a ticket on SourceForge about this. The installer fails to find the ESP partition of APFS-formatted Fusion Drives and instead installs Clover to the system root. To update I have to manually copy those files to the ESP partition. I'm not sure if the same issue occurs with AppleRAID volumes, APFS or not.

Yes, known problem with all system volumes in a container partition. It is detection problem in installer, workaround is exactly what you are doing for now...

Hi @Slice

 

Clover r4928: I've a problem with Windows partition name (see pictures below). One in french language: é is not recognized, another is blank no name at all. I don't understand why?

Raster themes have only ascii character set, no extended latin. (as a bonus russian and korean by special efforts)

SVG themes may have any characters including chinese but author or user should provide the SVG font with all needed letters.

For different additional SSDT table. You seems have 8 tables.

Then the message must include SSDT ID just to avoid confusion?

Clover 4988 is a stinker!  I can't boot at all with it.   Can't even get to the Apple logo before it stops me dead......managed to disable all of my booting for all of my drives (mainly because I use Clover as my bootloader)......

 

Clover 4972 works............this one's (4988) a turkey, guys.........

Agree! 

The «driverss64UEFI» folder has disappeared and in its place there is another one called simply «drivers» and inside it is the «UEFI» folder.

On reboot the nvidia 1080Ti is no longer detected.

Since the official release didn't remove the driverss64UEFI nor drivers64, can I ask where did you get the installer

if [[ -d  "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64" && \
    ! -d "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/@CLOVER_DRIVERS_LEGACY@" ]]; then
  mkdir -p "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers"
  cp "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64" "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/@CLOVER_DRIVERS_LEGACY@"
fi

if [[ -d  "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI" && \
    ! -d "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/@CLOVER_DRIVERS_UEFI@" ]]; then
  mkdir -p "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers"
  cp "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI" "${EFI_ROOT_DIR}/EFI/CLOVER/drivers/@CLOVER_DRIVERS_UEFI@"
fi

as I can see only cp commands in official release?

Hello vector sigma

 

I downloaded the version from sourceforge. I prepared a comparison in images between the version of clover 4972 and the 4988. Look at the differences.
In 4988, by installing the same drivers that i install in 4972, when i restarted High Sierra don't see 1080Ti

I know the difference but you aren't surprised a directory gone without lauch any rm command? I'm saying this because only unreleased revision before 4988 did this during our tests you can follow at the "general discussion" topic.

Changing directory to load drivers do nothing to the functionality of Clover. A change regarding nvidia is introduced in r4981 but not sure can have downsides for you.

Problem solved. 

 

The nvidia 1080Ti was not detected because in the 4998 version of Clover it is no longer possible to install the AptioMemoryFix-64.efi driver. 

So i took this AptioMemoryFix-64.efi driver from version 4972 and put it in the Clover / drivers / UEFI/ folder of version 4998: now everything works fine.

Is not included in Clover unless you compile it with third party scripts (unless Slice did this). By the way to avoid surprise next time ensure that no one driver is selected under "Memory Fix" because if one of them is selected all other drivers that contains "aptiomem" or "osxaptiofix" will get deleted. If none of them is selected your AptioMemoryFix wil stay in safe forever. This because the installer records what have you done in previous installations.

Feature request:

 

As I understand if you want to change the boot order in Clover in a multi boot system you have define what disk should load first in the plist via its UUID. A little complicated.

 

So I had an idea that it would be pretty cool if you could with in Clover boot environment click and drag to the front the icon for the partition you want to 

boot first. Much like how some UEFI bioses do it where you drag the disk up top.

 

Thanks

Just tried setting Mojave as the startup disk  in settings and when it rebooted it had selected the 'Preboot' partition instead. 

 

Using Clover 4920.

 

So it didn't work.

It did work. Show me Clover preboot.log corresponding to the situation.

It must work because this is Apple's control panel, invented by Apple not me.

      Dear all,
       
      I have a external harddisk about 500GB, I installed the clover into it and the harddisk is GPT format, below is the 3 partitions details:
      FS01: EFI - disk0s1 - fat32
      FS02: install mac  image - disk0s2 -  hfs+
      FS03: install windows 10 - disk0s3 - fat32
       
      I can use this external harddisk to install Mac without issue, I use below steps to install windows 10
      enter the FS03:
      cd to efi/boot/ and excuete bootx64.efi
      after pop up the windows install screen, i click next and it shows error 'A media driver your computer needs is missing...' and the installation can not go any further.
      Firstly I use ultraiso to write the windows 10 image to a flash disk and no issue to start install window 10 so the image is working fine. Since I dont know how to write
      a wiindow installation image into harddisk partition, I used winrar extra all the files into disk0s3, am I missing some steps or actually clover not support to install windows
      by partitions, apprecating any helps.

      Not working:
      - Original Wi-Fi (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA344A):  unsupported, you need switch to BCM94352Z or just use a mini usb wifi dongle.
      - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M: Optimus not supported.
      - Card Reader: Unsupported -> Can't really fix because I don't have any SD Card at the moment, maybe can be fixed by adding Prod & Ven IDs to AppleStorageDevices.kext, I never used it anyway. name: "USB2.0-CRW" Prod ID: "0x0129" Ven ID: "0x0bda  (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)"
      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 BCM94352Z card (you will have hand-off Bluetooth too), just install the kexts (enabled with BrcmFirmwareRepo.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
       
      Issues:
      - None
      BIOS Settings:
      - BIOS version 1.15 (irrelevant)
      - Secure Boot: Disabled
      - Touchpad: Advanced
      - Boot mode: UEFI
      Getting ready for Installation:
      - Download the Catalina install zip (bootpack & postinstall): acer_aspire_V591G-55TU_cata.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!
      On Catalina the System folder is read-only, so you need to remount in rw to modify System/Library. 
      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):

      Elan SmartTouchpad
      I only use scrolling, one-, double- & tripletap
      If you want to try other gestures go to this link for more informations, options (v4.6.5) ->  DETAILS ABOUT THE SMART TOUCHPAD DRIVER FEATURES
      Fn Brightness keys not working with this, tried several things without success. With VoodoPS2Controller it's working, but you'll have no gestures (neither scrolling).
       
       
      Before updating to a new version of Catalina 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)
       
      Catalina & 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)!

      I just made a clean install of High Sierra on a 1TB crucial ssd. Installed clover Clover_v2.5k_r5070 into the EFI of this ssd, but when I tried to make it my default boot drive, the clover screen wouldn't come up, and left a black screen.
      I tried using the Olarilia usb drive and clover did the same thing.  The only way I can currently boot is to use my old drive with clover v2.4k_4945 then select  my new drive from the clover menu.   
       
      Do I need to install v2.4k on my new drive or is there a way I can get v2.5k working?
       
      I have a GA-x79-ud5 motherboard, AMD  rx580 graphics card and use a Sony 4k tv as my monitor.

      Clover r5101 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.
