Loading drivers/kexts in EFI or: How do I enable R/W access to NTFS drives without commercial software

Hi All,

 

I´m back with my new hackintosh and I got almost everything working.

During the setup and handling all the kexts, clover and so on i stumbled across a EFI driver called NTFS-64.efi.

I put it in my clover directory (EFI partition, /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/NTFS-64.efi ) but obviously it does not do the trick. I don´t want to use paragon or similar software.

When I connect a USB HDD with NTFS it only gets mounted as readable, no write access. Same with some kexts in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/other, they just didn´t load, so i installed them in /Library/Extentions.

General question: What did I do wrong? How do i get kext/efi files loaded from my efi clover folder?

 

I appreciate every hint or help. Thanks!

ntfs.efi is just for clover to recognise ntfs drives at boot. Not for gaining writing capabilities at them.

There are some ways for mounting ntfs drives for writing (even macos has it's own) but they are unreliable. 

For me , best solution with no problems so far is Paragon NTFS.
