Clover problems report & features request

Hello,

 

I am writing to ask for some help in upgrading Clover from v4972 to v5018. I have tried different options, but so far these have led to one of:

 

1.) Black screen with no disk activity.

2.) Constant bios screen reboot loop that never gets to the Clover screen.

3.) The prohibited sign, instead of the usual boot screens.

 

I have a Gigabyte Z370XP SLI motherboard with a i5-8400

 

Clover v4972 is working fine,  these are the drivers I have:

first.jpg.be892b5e9fcecd2fcb6d86296f5d9e2c.jpg

 

It seems that there are two drivers that have been dropped from Clover in the new v5018, but I did not know if this is the problem or not.

Going through the options in v5018, I have the following:

My question is this: What do I need to do to get the update working?

 

Thanks for your help!

Hi

 

First, AptioFixMemery is no more include in Clover: so you have to download yourself from Acidanthera repo on Github. 

 

For Clover itself, v2.5K introduce new directories or subdirectories. Put your drivers locate in Driver64UEFI (you can remove this old directory later) in appropriate folder: take a look below for explanation.

Hello @Matgen84

 

Thank you for your help, adding the two files back in made it work!

 

Just for completeness, after cleanup the folder looks like this:

So far, so good and thanks again.

Hi

 

If Clover work, you can remove old driversU64UEFI folder.

 

Do you use FileVault2? If not, don't install its drivers like AppleKeyAggregator.efi, AppleUITheme!.Uefi, AppleImageCodec, AppleKeyFeeder.efi, AptioInput.efi or HashServiceFix.efi.

Excuse me

I keep all mentioned drivers in my clover and I have no idea what its job ? 

 

Edited : OK  I got its job

You don't have FileVault (encrypting data disk). So You can remove all  drivers mentioned in my previous quote. Do not install them when update Clover.

Because Clover 2.5k r5xxxx don't load drivers in Drivers64UEFI :) So remove this folder is useful

Right 

I did clean install with clover 2.5k with clean EFI Partition , replaced config.plist  with my working one , placed necessary kexts & ACPI files 

Now no Drivers64UEFI folder and I've deleted Off Drivers as well 

Everything just working fine

Why Clover is still hosted on sourceforge? Sourceforge is a joke. How am I supposed to make a PR on that prehistoric website?

 

I've made a patch which will resolve the issue described in:

The patch is here: https://pastebin.com/wB00fme4

 

Another issue is that here: https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/HEAD/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/AcpiPatcher.c#l2145 

isn't checked if ProcLocalApic->Flags:0 (Processor Enabled) is set to 1.

Some investigations and confirmations are present in the thread which I've added here: https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/discussion/1726372/thread/9aeb35a4e5/ AFAIK I'm not allowed to link it directly.

 

On X299 systems, the Processor IDs from APIC table instead of being incremental (similar with real Macs), are instead copied from LAPIC IDs; eg: [0x10, 0x04, 0x08, 0x0a, 0x02... ].

 

The issue appears for the CPUs which don't have any core with LAPIC ID = 0; confirmed for 9800x, 9820x and 9900x.

The patch replace first ProcessorID with 0. This is enough to boot. It may be extended to reindex all cores, but it would be more riskier with no real benefit.

 

Whats strange is that on real Macs, Processor IDs starts from 1 and LAPIC IDs starts from 0, but I had no success changing Processor ID to 1.

Feature request:

Sometimes you may want to install a OSX/Mac OS which isn't natively supported.

What to do. No need to hack installer

Change SMBIOS to a compatible one.

How to do this?

Why not have Clover automatically select the right SMBIOS OR config.

 

I.E. if I want to install Mojave on a iMac10,1 it won't work.

so either Clover selects a compatible SMBIOS or it loads a specific config.

 

I.E. want to use Macmimi6.2, use config.Macmimi62.plist

Should do this automatically.

 

Clover should ALSO have an Auto mode where it selects everything needed to boot.

trying to build newest clover but fails...

I'm on 10.14.6 and haven't viewed what's going on for a long time, though I'm aware 

that some structural changes for clover have been made.

I changed my EFI folder accordingly.

NetworkPkg is missing , still needed ?

Or do I need to change ebuild.sh to avoid errors ?

 

Thanks for insights

 so far I was building with your 2nd option, but i would prefer to keep things as simple as possible.

What's your suggestion ?

I'm having some real issues getting the NIC kext to load on my system.

 

Attached is the debug log which shows it finds the 8168 NIC, and see's the MAC address but fails to load the kext siting the following:

22:078  0:022  Preparing kexts injection for arch=x86_64 from EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other
22:088  0:009  Extra kext: EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext (v.2.2.2)
22:099  0:011  Skipping kext injection by OSBundleRequired : EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext
22:109  0:009  Extra kext: EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\WhateverGreen.kext (v.1.2.7)
22:161  0:052  Extra kext: EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\Lilu.kext (v.1.3.5)
22:189  0:028  Extra kext: EFI\CLOVER\kexts\Other\FakeSMC.kext (v.3.5.2)
22:212  0:022  Preparing kexts injection for arch=x86_64 from EFI\CLOVER\kexts\10.14
22:221  0:009  Extra kext: EFI\CLOVER\kexts\10.14\RealtekRTL8111.kext (v.2.2.1)
22:234  0:012  Skipping kext injection by OSBundleRequired : EFI\CLOVER\kexts\10.14\RealtekRTL8111.kext

It doesn't matter if it is in the other folder or in 10.14, I've tried multiple kexts as well from different locations so it's highly unlikely it is a bad file/kext as the others load just fine.

 

I am stuck (and found this thread searching for: Skipping kext injection by OSBundleRequired) as I don't know where to start with better info to diagnose the issue.  It has been suggested that the issue might be with Clover and not the driver.

Do you try AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext (v.2.3.0) Mojave and later compatible? v2.2.2 is for Sierra and High Sierra (see changelog)

 

Update RealTek RT8111 to latest version v2.2.2 or build v2.3.0.d7

https://github.com/Mieze/RTL8111_driver_for_OS_X/releases

 

Of course update Lilu and his plugins.

I will try all that...  but the E2200 kext doesn't load either (v2.2.2) no that I would expect it would since it's a Realtek NIC and the RTL8111 (v2.2.1) is what I am using, so as you can imagine I have my doubts that this will help/change anything - you can see all this in my debug.log previously attached.

 

But I will do it and report back later today when I get home.

 

Thanks

      Can I propose a new subforum be created for the new OpenCorePkg OpenCore front end being created by vit9696 and others, it is a fantastic piece of work:
      https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg
      Even at version 0.1 it runs my Mojave 10.14.4 setup very nearly flawlessly. It consists of a 10KB bootstrap BootX64.efi and a 200KB OpenCore.efi OS loader. All configuration is done using a very well documented config.plist

      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.

      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

      - 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.
