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
Legacy = PBR Timeout = True ( will remove the Timeout countdown, from Clover boot menu)
Scan / Custom
Entries = True Tool = True Legacy = False ( removes extra Windows 10 entries )
- 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 )
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 **
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
I successfully installed macOS 10.11.6 and Windows 7 Pro SP1 in UEFI mode on the laptop.
I know, there are detailed guides here and on osxlatitude.com but I was not agree with them and carefully check and test every step to tune my Mac.
Intel® Core� i5-3320M CPU @ 2.60GHz, speedstep works with Clover default settings
Chipset Intel 7 series, no patches needed
Video: IntelHD4000 or NVS5200M switchable in BIOS, work in both cases
LAN; Intel 82579LM, works with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.2.1
Audio: IDT 92HD93BXX, works with VoodooHDA 2.9.0.
SDHC reader O2Micro; works with native AppleSDHC.kext with Clover Arbitrary properties.
USB3.0 works natively if not disabled in DSDT
PS2 keyboard and touchpad works with VoodooPS2.
WiFi: Dell Intel WiFi was replaced by Dell DW1520, Broadcom BCM943224HMS. DeviceID=4353
LCD Screen 1366x768
BIOS A12. Initially was A02. Then I flashed A23 and found it is quite bad. The screen is full of artefacts. Flash A12 and all is OK. Not tested other versions.
For some reason BIOS can switched from Intel to Nvidia by itself so I have to do my solution working independent on this state.
It is not working OOB although it has DeviceID known to Apple. The reason is WhiteList in the driver.
I set MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 while the WiFi will work on MacBookAir. I make a patch in Clover.
As well a patch for channels.
I deleted a kext Brcm4331 because it has the same DeviceID. Let kext Brcm4360 to work alone.
In Bios we can set Optimus = Enable/Disable
If Enable then we have two videocards Intel first and Nvidia second. In this case additional SSDT-3.aml will switch off Nvidia.
If Disable then we have only Nvidia card. It will work if Board-ID taken from iMac13,2.
But here there is contradiction with WiFi with required Board-ID from MacBookAir.
So I take MacModel as MacBookPro10,1 which is most close by CPU IvyBridge.
Set BoardID like iMac13,2 to make Nvidia working.
Patch BoardID in Brcm4360 to make WiFi working.
Now I have
and SSDT-3.aml in ACPI\patched folder. This SSDT will switch off Nvidia if Intel card ON.
For Intel graphics there is a patch against 8 apples at start.
No special kexts.
The brightness controlled by keys F1,F2 and slider in Control Panel in both case Intel or Nvidia. Details here #72
DSDT and SSDT
This is very long story and finally I have working sleep in both cases Intel or Nvidia.
I use my HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5.0.
I got monitoring:
GPU main frequency
GPU shader frequency
Battery state % full, time to charged or time to empty.
Battery voltage dinamically.
Battery amperage dynamically. I can see it changes on heavy games.
I like VoodooHDA and have no problems with it.
The sound is clear, loud, and switchable between internal speaker and headphone.
Mic is working.
Just tested with BTFirmwareUpdate.kext and it works in 10.11.6. I not needed it so switched off by wireless switch at right side.
For 10.13.6 there is other kext BRCMInjector.
Keyboard, Touchpad and Touchstick
My config, ACPI files and kexts are in attachment.
Better DSDT in the post #6.
Sleep working even when AC inserted.
Now I have HighSierra and this is my EFI folder
Welcome to discussion!

Hello everyone, this is my first post here on forum.
I need one help with how to enable my audio devices.
My OS not recognize my audio devices. Please, help me!
CPU: Intel® Core I5-2320 6M 1155;
Motherboard: AsRock H61M-HG4;
Graphics card: Zotac Nvidia GTX 960 2GB
Note: i try delete AppleHDA. The OS give me an error, but does not delete the file.
After a long run, I successfully upgraded High Sierra to mojave 10.14 on an intel 5 series chipset MotherBoard.
GPU1: Saphire AMD RX 460
GPU2: Nvidia 8400GS
Storage: 500 GB HDD WD Green.
1) macOS pre mojave.
2) macOS mojave installer from Apple store.
3) Empty partition or USB to upgrade from.
4) Un-mout all unused dmgs.
5) GPT/GUID HDD.
1) Prepare an empty partition or USB with at least 6 GB.
2) Format the partition or USB with GUID partition table and HFS+ partition with a name BootablePartition.
3) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app.
4) Show Package Contents.
5) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find BaseSystem.dmg.
6) Double click on BaseSystem.dmg to mount.
7) From Disk Utilty click on your partition or the USB that you prepared from number (2).
8) Click on restore, and chose OS X Base System (BaseSystem.dmg image), then restore it to that partition or USB.
9) After restoring rename the partition back to BootablePartition.
9) Run this command:
rm -rfv /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 10) Create a new folder instead of the broken link and name it Packages, run this command:
mkdir -v /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages 11) Go back to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app and repeat number 2.
12) Go to Contents/SharedSupport you will find InstallESD.dmg.
13) Mount InstallESD.dmg.
14) Run this command:
cp -v /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg /Volumes/BootablePartition/System/Installation/Packages/ 15) Download the latest clover from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
16) Install clover on your USB BootablePartition or in a different USB to boot from it. delete all your CLOVER/kext/10.xx and keep others, make sure you don't have any extra kext rather than FakeSMC.kext in the other folder.
in my case I used FakeSMC.kext and my lan kext RealtekRTL8111.kext.
17) known Problems in my build:
If I updated directly from the apple store the installer in clover will boot with a cross circle sign.
The FIX is to add this to Clover KextToPatch Thanks to @sunKi http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/327488-macos-high-sierra-final-release-is-out-17a365/page-10?do=findComment&comment=2505086 this fix is still working for me in mojave.

19) SMBIOS mac model that I use is iMac13,2.
20) Go to /Application/Install macOS Mojave.app click on it and chose to install to your macOS Mojave partition.
22) From clover chose BootablePartion.
23) If everything is okie BootablePartition will boot to install macOS mojave, wait wait wait till it finish it might take to 1 hour just wait it will reach the auto reboot soon .
24) Boot to your old macOS Hight Sierra that will be your mojave partition now and enjoy.
a) Download Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext or build them from source (which I did).
b) place them in your /EFI/CLOVER/kext/others/
c) add your audio layout in clover/Devices dict options in my case it's ALC888B which has the layout of 1:
<key>Audio</key> <dict> <key>Inject</key> <string>1</string> </dict> d) I had to add beta args to clover/Boot dict, argument (-lilubeta -alcbeta):
<key>Arguments</key> <string>-lilubeta -alcbeta</string> 2) Add number 14 KextsToPath array to your clover as well.
Anything else is working for me I didn't need any extra clover kext so far, I tried whatevergreen.kext to fire up my rx 460 without the helper card but no success, So I am just sticking with booting from Nvidia as a first GPU from my motherboard configuration then swap the cables after choosing my macOS partion from clover.
After upgrading my HFS+ High Sierra partition converted to APFS, no know problem so far.
Happy build and more info about the partitioning method with a more detailed instructions in this post that I used to update my Sierra to High Sierra
Special thanks to crazybirdy, sunKi and all of you out there that make this happens.
