Clover shows two boot options for Windows EFI

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

I've recently installed High Sierra fresh and I've been having this problem with clover since. It basically shows two options for booting Windows from the EFI partition (Windows EFI, not OS X's):

- Boot Windows EFI from EFI

- Boot Windows From EFI

 

Only the first works. So, I figured it would fix the problem if I just turn off all Clover's scan options and then created custom entries for OS X and Windows, but the problem still persists. If I find the UUID of Boot Windows from EFI and hide it in Clover Configurator, it will simply hide both Windows boot options, including my custom entry, so somehow it's getting these two entries from the same partition.

 

What can I do to fix this issue? Let me know if you need my bootlog or anything.

 

Best regards.

Use Clover configurator and in Gui create a Custom Entries like this UEFI Internal:

Check if it worked.

Note: In Custom Entries for Windows 10, set Hidden = No

I am guessing that you are using two drives for Windows and macOS.  If you move the Microsoft folder from the EFI partition on the Windows drive over to the EFI partition on the macOS drive that contains Clover, you can then boot your custom Windows entry selecting the EFI partition of the macOS drive.  You should be able to mount that "No Name" EFI partition on the Windows drive using Clover Configurator.  You then erase the EFI folder on the Windows drive's EFI partition.  You may want to backup these folders before you erase.  After that you can then proceed to hide that partition to remove that "Boot Windows from EFI" icon from the Clover menu as you did before.  Hope this helps.  :thumbsup_anim:

I would like to simply change the name shown under the Clover boot options and am doing something wrong. I believe I have the correct UUID, but I am using APFS and so there are 4 volumes with the same UUID. I tried all four paths but I still have no change in the boot name. I really don't know what more to change.

 

I've got my diskutil list, my diskutil apfs list, my bootlog and I should be able to do this, but just coming up short. Has anyone done this that can help me figure out what I am doing incorrectly?

Did you install Windows after installing Clover?

Yes I did. I installed MacOSX first and that is when I installed Clover. I can't change either the windows or the mac option.

 

I'm trying to more understand the nuts and bolts of how Clover works. Would it make a difference in when Clover was installed as to whether it would let me edit the descriptions? If so, can you explain why? It would be good to know.

 

Thanks

I have a similar issue.  I added a custom entry in Clover so I can name it nicely "Windows 10".  This one works fine.  But I also have the duplicate "Boot Windows from EFI" showing, and this one does not boot.  If I add this UUID to the hidden list, then both of them disappear.  I have two separate SATA disks for Windows 10 and macOS.  This is Clover 4658.

try adding the word "legacy" to your config.plist GUI/ hide volumes without the ""

Didn't work.  Thanks though.

      Hi All
       
      I'm trying to start a Hackintosh High Sierra 10.13.5 installation:
      - MSI B350 PC Mate
      - Ryzen 5 - 2600
      - Radeon Pro 580 GPU
      - 4 x 8GB DDR4
      (Have a working clover bootloader for HS 10.13.3 - but for some reason, I can't use that setup with the 10.13.5) 
       
      Have tried different bootloader setup, with different outcomes...
      ATM. I get this error/hang - "Unknown CPU: family = 0x17, model = 0x8, Stepping = 0x2"
      Have search google, and can see that the threads ppl. are getting this, is when they look at "About this mac", I haven't yet installed the OSX.
       
      So can someone help...

      I'm running the newest Kexts: AppleALC, FakeSMC, Lilu, RealtekRTL8111, USBInjectAll and WhateverGreen.
      In Bootloader setup, i'm running: -v, -s, -f, -no_compat_check, busratio=34, PCIRootUID=1, npci=0x2000, dart=0 and nv_disable=1
      In SMBIOS i'm using the iMac18,2 and in RT i'm using BooterConfig: 0x28 and CsrActiveConfig: 0x67
      In installed drivers i'm using: AptioMemoryFix, EmuVariableUefi-64, OsxAptioFixDrv-64 (Have tried Fix2 as well)
       
      But i'm, keep getting the Unknown CPU hang/error, can someone help...
      Or do someone have a setup with the same CPU and GPU, that can show me his/her setup for Bootloader/Kexts...

      Hello, I'm a noob at installing MacOS on my current PC (which is running Windows 10 x64 Pro).
      Can I do a dual boot with windows 10 and MacOS Mojave? I already have windows 10 installed and I would like to put and MacOS Mojave, can it? If not, should I reinstall from 0 MacOS Mojave and after Windows 10?
       
      P.S: I have already make a topic about "Can I run MacOS" and the export boys on the forum said to me I can run it.
