After Mojave Install, no APFS SSD in Clover Boot Menu

Recommended Posts

I've made a Mojave Install USB and used Clover 2.4k_r4682 and selected ApfsDriverLoader-64 and also grabbed the APFS.efi file from my install medai and put it into EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI


The installer boots fine. I'm forced to make my SSD an APFS drive, files install and the system reboots, but then I only see my install media. It doesn't see my SSD at all.


What can I/should I do?

Same problem in New Mojave on T470p. SAMSUNG MZVLW512HMJP-000L7 (512 GB, PCI-E 3.0 x4) with NVM . Tried without success:
- SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext
- NvmExpressDxe-64.efi
- One of the special LiteOn/Plextor/Hynix patches. https://github.com/RehabMan/patch-nvme


This solution worked my on High Sierra, but not on Mojave.

Ane idea?

I don't think you need APFS.efi, ApfsDriverLoader-64 is enough.

This is what I have on drivers64UEFI,  and you can see that I don't have APFS.efi

I have a SSD and I will make a clean installation of Mojave,


Which installation do you recommend as HFS + or APFS.


Thank you

If you got an SSD, you wont have a choice. MacOS will convert any HFS+ SSD to APFS.

Tôi đã sử dụng bộ cài đặt của chris1111 và làm cho việc lắp đặt Mojave HFS và không APFS.

And with Mojave HFS, can you still update direct from App Store, bro? Cause i hear somewhere seems HFS+ can't update from AppStore, only APFS can update from AppStore.

I had the same issue...fixed it by keeping hfs+ instead of apfs. If you really want the apfs file format this will obviously not fix your problem.


I Tried apfs.efi and apfsloader64.efi, but it never showed me the apfs partition, then tried the paragon apfs to hfs+ converter and manual repartitioning after the mojave installation, but it just corrupted my drive so it wasnt able to boot (Showed prohibitory sign). 

I then tried skipping the apfs conversion in the install-process via terminal (/Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --converttoapfs NO) but it didnt work because of an firmware error within my drive.


BUT!...This installer made my day: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/944-mojave-mbr-hfs-firmware-check-patch/


It skipped the firmware check so I was able to install mojave on my HFS+ SSD with the converttoapfs No
