Packages in EFI partition

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello guys !


I am working on a new project and I need to create a pkg to install files in the EFI partition.

I am using the app called "Packages" but I don't know how to made it mount the EFI of the startup disk, install the files and unmount the partition.
When I create a folder /EFI or /EFIROOTDIR it creates a folder to the start of the disk not in the partition.


If anyone got an idea, even with XCode


Thank you very much

Create a pre-install script that mounts the EFI partition. You could for example take a look at how Clover does it:
