Have you tried looking in your firmware menu to see if it matches the current localtime or if its indeed UTC? If its the first you need no offset, also this would make sense as +7 would give you 2125 and -7 would give you 0725, both are in night time.

It's never matched,,, at my macOS time is 14.25 but in BIOS it's 19.25. But time in windows and BIOS is same

So that is because you have -5 set which is EST which is eastern US. You must not have correct timezone set in macOS. In windows, it uses localtime unless you change a registry key DWORD:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation\RealTimeIsUniversal=1

Then set the correct timezone for both of your OSes. Then your offset will work for where you are actually located.

 

EDIT: So either you want -7 because you are in MST in the US/canada or somewhere equivalent in the west, or you want +7 because you are in east asia, specifically indochina region.

So this is complete my conditions (sorry for bad english)

1. I set add Dword 32Bit at TimeZoneInformation for RealTimeIsUniversal=1 and change my time to 13.47 (automatic set by Windows Time)
2. In config.plist, i add Timezone = +7

Conditions
1. Boot into mac and set time as my local time (automatic set by internet location) 13.57 then reboot and enter bios
2. At my BIOS time is 06.57
3. Boot into mac and my time is 13.57

Reboot into windows, and mac again and windows again and repeat again my time in BIOS always set to 06.57 unless i delete REGISTRY Value about RealTimeIsUniversal then BIOS Time will same like Windows. But it will break again into 06.57 if i reboot from mac. So i need to set RealTimeIsUniversal=1 to make my Windows Time is not same like BIOS Time (06.57)

Clover Time is Night Mode (because BIOS 06.57)

My Questions:
How to prevent BIOS TIME change???

The link I posted earlier stops macOS from adjusting the bios as it switched macOS to local time (bios time) and not UTC.

But it doesn’t matter what time your bios says as long as macOS and windows have correct time it’s fine. And if Themes are dark or light when they aren’t supposed to be then you use the Timezone in GUI section.

Nice solution it work,, i tested it

So,
1. In mac my time is 16.13 (day time)
2. BIOS time is 09.13 (day time)

of course both of time is Daytime,, so i can't test the solution so i make change. Replace +7 to 7
1. Change my mac time to 21.00 (night time)
2. When boot my BIOS time is 14.00 (day time)

But, in CLOVER GUI theme is NIGHT,, so change +7 to 7 is the solution :)

Thanks @Slice

lol, i was just using +7 to differentiate between -7... but maybe we should change this line https://sourceforge.net/p/cloverefiboot/code/HEAD/tree/rEFIt_UEFI/Platform/Settings.c#l287 to

return (INTN)AsciiStrDecimalToUintn ((Prop->string[0] == '+') ? (Prop->string + 1) : Prop->string);

Because adding a + sign is a completely valid number still.

Just found a Clover bug with the Clovy theme: my initial selection is this:

screenshot2.thumb.png.ab504964c18caafb793ef5e48fcac4b8.png

 

Look at the "Boot..." label when I select Windows:

 

screenshot3.thumb.png.33fd7412b0d25641b1deaad59ac55be3.png

 

Part of the first letter of the previous label is still visible. Quick test will show such anomalies when switching from shorter to longer label and vice versa.

Not sure if it happens to other vector themes, haven't seen other so far.

The graphics card is Nvidia GTX 650.

 

Edit: seems like a graphics issue, no such problem with the Intel HD 4000 graphics on my laptop...

If you edit Clovy > theme.svg

Change .FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:20px;}

To 

.FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:22px;}

My bad, that was for BGM_SVG

And it should have been

Change .FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:22px;}

To 

.FontSizeMessageRow{font-size:20px;}

It's obviously not the theme, it's Clover and the way it draws the objects, using the NVidia GOP. Another example (BGM_SVG):

screenshot0.thumb.png.2ed0709d48bec019aa295aaae1648045.png

 

Look the trails when I walk through all the options from the second line. It's like drawing the new text above the old one, without removing it first.

Tried the same theme on Intel HD 4000 and guess what, everything looks normal.

 

Edit: everything seems fine on the HD 520 graphics on my other laptop. So it seems Clover doesn't play well with the NVidia GOP for some reason.

Yes, it’s a bug that needs looking in to. I saw it last week when setting the message row to be a larger size than normal. 

 

As SavageAUS pointed out, reducing the text size helped overcome this at the time but of course does not fix the bug.

Also, the GUI freezes, when I change the theme from the GUI menu, and I can't do anything, when it does, except to reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del.

In addition to the above, there is something really wrong with Clover, using this particular NVidia GOP driver. Not sure if this issue happens on other NVidia cards, as I have only this one (GTX 650).

Oh, you guys, always finding problems with stuff. I personally think it's cool. I like that there are artifacts left behind on the screen, it's like it's adding to the ambiance of the themes. Very cool to have the amazing feature of having to restart to prevent you from choosing to unwisely change your theme, the first one was good enough!

LOL so silly api. the best feture is if you set clovy permanently in config and you can't even get back into clover... that's a super feature as well I call it  a security feature since you can only unlock from your thumb drive.... awesome!!! :thumbsup_anim:

I wish to announce my new SVG theme, night look

Снимок экрана 2018-12-27 в 7.32.51.png

 

It is far from complete and I also see bugs in Clover.

The theme demonstrates such technologies as: vertical layout, font usage, conic gradients, clip-path usage, symbol usage, text as picture and more.

Yeah, I got similar issue with vector theme on Nvidia GT 520 Vesa; but on my case is not only freezing in "GUI Tuning" (if vector theme being used) but also when pressing Space Bar on Boot volume then select Return (or Esc) it would frozen immediately. I've restarted my real mach more than 5 times for testing. Wait, I have a same issue on VirtualBox actually; graphics problem still?

Weird is all going fine on 10 inch Netbook with Intel GMA 3150 (Atom CPU, 1024x600 native, Vesa limited to 800x600, Legacy mode, no idea how to debug except running Clover from GPT Ext. USB).

 

@Philip Petev About font; there's no issue using Clovy has, but only with blackosx's BGM_SVG (which I believe is PTMono: one of Monotype font family).. not sure but on Raster theme previously we could play with CharWidth on theme.plist.. vector theme needs graphics editor or xml edit to change it, I think.

 

@Slice I see awesome thing when an Entry is selected using Clovy on r4825, it'll look upper on screen. A new feature?

It's a bug with drawing sum of Selection+Image. I am already working on it.

Well, a cool bug then.. it reminds me with "Smooth" raster theme honestly.

 

 

Spoke too early, I've to correct that no longer getting freeze issue when vector theme switch using VM since r4825 (or could be earlier, more recent than r4822), but just with my Nvidia Vesa on real mach. OK, I just read your other reply here.

      Update: On October 24, 2020, using clover to solve the macOS11 beta10 boot problem, you can now enjoy macOS11beta10, and the compatibility of subsequent versions is not guaranteed.
      HIDPI uses a modified version. You can directly execute the hidpi script to get a better experience. If you lose the repair, it is not within the scope of my support.
      Support upgrades without destroying the integrity of the original image.
      There seems to be a problem with the shortcut keys. If you can help solve it, thank you for your contribution.
       
      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air
                      :++++.          OS: 64bit Mac OS X 10.15.5 19F96

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro.

      Hi All.
      Im Happy to share my new EFI file that I put together  18/10/2020. which got me up and running 11.0  Beta(20A5395g) on my hack
      a thanks you to everyone who's work I have use to assemble this EFI File. and the help I have received from this site
      I have used openCore 0.6.3, sound work for me (HDMI) and onboard Ethernet. map the usb ports as you wish.
      the definition to iMac20,2
      hope it helps all who need it
      PS. Please leave a comment if the EFI File is helpful to you
      (No Kexts were Harmed in the making of this EFI)
      THIS EFI. WAS MADE ON A Z490 GIGABYTE MASTER For the Z490 Gigabyte Master ONLY

      I have installed MacOS and Windows on the following hardware:
       
      AMD Ryzen 7 3700X MSI B450M Mortar Max Sapphire Radeon Pulse RX 5600 XT 6G Samsung 860 QVO, 1 TB SSD (PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x3)/Pci(0x0,0x1)/Sata(0x5,0xFFFF,0x0)) - MacOS on this disk Kingston A2000 SSD 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe (PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/NVMe(0x1,15-AD-CD-26-28-B7-26-00)) - Windows on this disk  
      OpenCore 0.6.1 MacOS 10.15.7 both disks GPT UEFI  
      Both OSs boot nicely and work as a charm when selecting either of the disks as boot disks in the BIOS.
       
      However, trying to boot Windows 10 from the Opencore Bootmanager (no matter whether PickerMode=internal or OpenCanopy) causes a Windows Blue Screen ("SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED").
      To be on the safe side, I have added an appropriate entry to Misc->Entries:
      <key>Arguments</key> <string></string> <key>Auxiliary</key> <false/> <key>Comment</key> <string>Not signed for security reasons</string> <key>Enabled</key> <true/> <key>Name</key> <string>Windows 10</string> <key>Path</key> <string>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/NVMe(0x1,15-AD-CD-26-28-B7-26-00)/HD(1,GPT,2E9695CB-0F9A-4005-AADB-2FF9C96AD02C,0x800,0x32000)/\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi</string> It points to the Windows 10 bootmanager on the Windows disk's EFI partition.
       
      What's wrong with that? Why does this cause a BSOD? It is not clear to me why it works when booting from BIOS but not here.
       
      config.plist attached (but maybe it has no relevance for the problem).
