The login to update the clover wiki work if you use a github account.

 

Hey, JrCs, where have you been?? The github login is broken. It fails with:

Authentication failed
Insufficient data from authentication provider, name not provided or empty

I am however logged in to github afterwards... Which makes no sense because I can not edit a page on the wiki.

After that screen it fails saying:

For the clover wiki authentification, you need to provide a NAME and an EMAIL in your github profile.

I do have both in my profile, just checked again just in case. Besides it was working fine before (up to last year I believe). Is anyone else having this problem?

What do you have set in config.plist as default boot volume? Last booted?

I hope this is the right place to ask for help, if not please forgive me and direct me to the correct place...

 

I successfully updated Clover from version 4558 to the new 4586 but immediately ran into a problem in that after the initial clover screen appears and the boot process is started, the screen goes black, the Apple screen progress bar does not appear and the system seems to hang. Pressing the restart button causes the system to go into a panic type rebooting over and over again cycle.

 

The problem, at a surface glance, seems to be an issue with the 4k monitor's chosen default resolution. Here is the tail of the debug log entry:

 

29:011  0:036  SetScreenResolution: 3840x2160 - already set
29:038  0:027  Custom boot is disabled
29:053  0:014  Closing log
39:347  10:293  Custom boot screen is not locked
39:360  0:013  Failed to unlock custom boot screen: Not Ready!
 

I have included the full debug log entry which has all of the system information included in it. I tried the installation on this system on two different os disks, one for 10.13 and one for 10.14 beta with the same result. Going back to version 4558 did work is all that seems to work at the moment.

 

Thank you for your help.

Looks like Custom boot screen is failing for some reason. Make sure you have all the drivers you need or just stay on whatever version works for now.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I used the same drivers as for version 4558, at least the same named drivers anyway, I am guessing the v4586 Clover installer/updater installed newer versions of them. Right now, I have dropped back to version 4558 to be able to run the system.

This is the exact behavior I am getting, the initial authorization works but not after.

I have both of these as well. But I figured out that if I enabled my email to be public, then disabled it to be private again, I can now log in. So it seems it may actually be a problem with github, since even though it was telling me it failed I was signed into github. It appears to be working for me now though. Thanks!

I'am unsure if this has reported or discussed before. If so please ignore my post...

It seems as if macOS Mojave has some "special requirements" about BootVolume/InstallVolume assignments. Here is what I did:

 

I have 2 drives in my rig, both apfs formatted, one of them holds HighSierra as my daily driver and the Clover bootloader on it's EFI partition the other one is a spare drive for testing purpose. I cloned an existing clean Mojave install onto the spare drive for testing purpose which booted quite nice with clover installed on my primary drive. Today Apple rushed out Beta3 of Mojave and so I decided to give it a try. The 1st stage of the update loaded and installed fine and the 2nd stage also started fine but quits with an error "macOS could not be installed.... Installer Sources could not be found..." I took a look at the installers log and it states that it could not find installer files on my primary drive, the one Clover starts from (called Sierra as the one which should be updated is called Mojave)...

 

It also does not matter wether you want to update or do a clean Install onto an empty disk you'll always will end up in an error message stating "Installer Resources could not be found" if the 2nd Stage is not booted from the drive it should be installed on. Is there any way to pass the booted device UUID to macOS instead of the one the bootloader started from?

Hello again,

 

Your answer was on the mark. It seems in v4558 the driver is called AptioMemoryFix.efi but in v4586 it has been renamed to AptioMemoryFix-64.efi and even though I use the custom install method to double check what is supposed to be installed, I managed to miss that the installer's auto-select method of upgrading already installed drivers did not select it.

 

Thank you very much for your help!

 

p.s. About the dimm slot choices, that comes from the motherboard user manual for a two dimm setup, using either pair is supposed to be okay, so the physical layout of the slots next to the cpu which then has the cpu cooler almost covering one of the dimm slots came into consideration. Right now, when prices come back into my affordability range so I can add the next pair, I will not have to take off the cpu cooler to do it.

Hello!
It seems there is a bug with RC Scripts for saving nvram.plist in latest Clover revisions (e.g. 4586) when installed in legacy mode in Snow Leopard (10.6.8). The nvram is not saved and a forced shutdown is required (Normal shutdown does not occur when scripts are installed, the system stucks at final black screen before complete shutdown). After login, high CPU usage is verified when RC scripts are installed. Checking the System Monitor, this is caused by a process named SED. All these issues don't occur with newer releases of macOS. Is OS X 10.6 incompatible with latest versions of these scripts or is this really a bug? Thanks.

Hello,

 

 

I have a quick question. What was the last clover release to use fdisk440 to install the bootloader files for non uefi boot?

 

I have had some trouble getting clover to install and boot on an old ga-x58a-ud3r, and was going mad trying to figure it out. I tried an older version (r4128) of clover and it worked. I noticed in the install logs that r4128 used fdisk440 but r4586 tried to use dd. 

 

For now, it works is I install r4128 first (just the bootloader) and then immediately install r4586 (full install) after it.

 

Also, is this a bug or is this intended behaviour after removing the "legacy boot" parts of clover?

 

 

Thanks!

I created a UEFI USB installer and my UEFI setup cannot boot using it. I tried a UEFI Ubuntu USB installer and that works fine.

 

I inspected both sticks using the motherboard EFI shell and I can see that the EFI folder created by clover doesn't have the attribute of D (D for directory) hence the motherboard firmware cannot see the bootloader.

 

The fix I had to do is to run these commands inside motherboard EFI shell:

1. fsX: (change to correct location of the USB stick)

2. attrib * (to display all the attributes of files/folders. The EFI folder has no D attribute at this point. It does does the archive attribute set. The other OSX system folders like .FSxxx have one)

3. attrib -a EFI (strips the EFI of its attributes. for some reason this also creates a new file called EFI)

4. del EFI (deletes the EFI file)

5. attrib * (to display the attributes again and this time the EFI folder has a D attribute)

 

Can this be fix by Clover?

 

Thanks!

      CLOVER DUAL BOOT MOJAVE & WINDOWS 10 GUIDE 
       

       
       
      INCLUDES  MBR / LEGACY BIOS  TO  GPT / EFI CONVERSION
      USING MBR2GPT TOOL
       
       
      PREREQUISITE: Two physical discs ( SSD’s or HDD’s )
       
       
       
       
       
      STEP 1 - Clover dual boot configuration 
       
      Open config.plist with Clover Configurator
       
      Boot
       Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)  

       
      GUI 
      Scan / Custom
       Entries = True  Tool = True  Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )  
      Hide Volume
      - Preboot ( macOS Preboot )
      - Recovery ( macOS Recovery )
       

       
      So at boot you will have two options: boot macOS Mojave or Windows 10 
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      ————————————————————
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive without Windows 10 installed
       
      Disconnect system drive that contains your macOS Mojave install from computer ( This is so that Windows does not overwrite existing macOS Mojave boot loader )
       
      Proceed with a Windows 10 UEFI install.  
      After installation reconnect macOS Mojave Drive, the Windows installation should now be detected and usable in Clover. 
      If Windows 10 is not detected or able to boot,  then verify you installed Windows 10 as UEFI and not MBR ---->  ( Read step 2 - For a drive with Windows 10 installed )
       
       
      OR
       
       
       
      STEP 2 - Using a drive with Windows 10 already installed
       
      Verify your Windows install is  GPT / UEFI or MBR / Legacy BIOS.   
      If Windows install is GPT UEFI then Windows 10 install is ready to use at Clover boot menu, you should be able to boot into Windows directly from Clover boot screen. 
       

       
       
      But if  Windows drive is detected at Clover boot screen, but when booting Windows you get a black screen with a cursor on the top left,
      then this is most likely because Windows drive is MBR ( Legacy BIOS ).  You can easily convert MBR to GPT using  Windows MBR2GPT tool ( this saves hours work having to reinstall Windows 10 and setting up all your applications again  ) 
       
      If Windows 10 install is MBR / Legacy BIOS  then simply convert to GPT / UEFI  following instructions below ( read video summary and view video )
       
       
      ** To use Windows 10  MBR2GPT tool  you must have Windows 10 version 1703 ( creators update  ) or later and less than 3 partitions on 
      the Windows 10 drive **
       
      Video summary:
       
      Confirm Windows 10 drive is MBR Legacy BIOS ( in Windows Disk Management ) Reboot into Windows PE ( Advanced Startup ) Convert from MBR Legacy BIOS to GPT UEFI ( using commands below ) mbr2gpt /validate mbr2gpt /convert Restart Verify Windows 10 drive has changed to GPT UEFI ( in Windows Disk Management )  
       
       
       
      After conversion Windows 10 is ready to use at the Clover boot menu

      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.

      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
