About This File

Clover V2 r544 .pkg .zip + BootSectors

How to Install for Dummies:

  1. Select Installation Directory by clicking Change Install Location

    If you don't know where to install, format your USB Stick to either FAT32 or HFS+ and Install Clover there

    Boot, check if it works, if it works install it on your EFI Partition or your OSX Root Partition (that where you installed your OS)

    If you are on GPT and you don't have an EFI partition then you didn't created your GPT Partition Table with Disk Utility

    If you are on GPT and you don't know what an EFI partition is - read www.projectosx.com forum!

    If you are on MBR, well that's not a problem since Clover installs into MBR, just make an partition for it FAT32/HFS+ works fine. You can also simply install it directly on your OS X System partition, Clover willl install into EFI directory on / Filesystem


  2. Click Customize
  3. Leave default options for BIOS MBR unless you are on GPT/UEFI and you know that your UEFI Bios supports it
  4. Change to 32 bit if necessary on your system
  5. Select your EFI Drivers for 32 bit or 64 bit installation
  6. If you don't know what to choose, install only:

    32bit: UsbMouseDxe-32
    64bit: UsbMouseDxe-64, PartitionDxe.efi-64

    Don't choose XhciDxe-64 or 32 if you are on USB 3.0/Reneas!

    Click install, Reboot, select the right Boot Partition from your Boot menu.
    Enjoy Clover V2 and send love to the makers!

@otherland: wipe the usb stick, create 200mb FAT32 partition on it, name it EFI, use MBR instead of GPT, install Clover using 32Bit / MBR combo, reboot.

If still no luck use the bootsector tools in the .zip to reinstall MBR on your usb stick.

all of info you need to do this is in .txt file

@inoperable: sorry for being so stupid, but still no joy. did everything as you said

-cleaned the stick

-created FAT32 partition (2nd as HFS+) using MBR

-installed the mentioned combo on FAT32

-rebooted

-hangs with 6 and blinking cursor in upper left corner

I can see everything in EFI but what i do next

Do i have to ad my DSDT somewhere ?

Do i have to do sth with config.plist ?

I've read all the topics (projectosx) countless times, but i just can't wrap my head around it...

i'm quite familiar with manual installations via terminal and editing kexts and so on, so i'm kind of frustrated that i can't get this to run ( i really want it !!! )...

any help highly appreciated

seems to be a problem with the boot -> boot0 -> ... loading chain.

whick option do you choose from the package installer?

you need one partition on usb stick, either hfs+ or fat32 and nothing more.

you need to install clover into the MBR on that stick.

to keep this dead simple:

1) diskutility -> usb stick -> partition -> 1 parttion (in options select MBR) -> erase -> msdos

2) launch .pkg installer

3) select the usb stick

4) don't select anything, just go with the default installation

5) check if the root directory of your usb stick contains an EFI directory and boot0, boot etc. files in it

otherland@: you don't need dsdt - clover is clover, it does fetch your dsdt automatically, patch it and boots it.

sneaky fucker, isn't he?

Thanks a lot, Slice! You've done fantastic job!

I have just installed Clover on my hack, and at last i have no CMOS reset, 100% working sleep mode + iCloud + FaceTime + Bootcamp + Boot Volume applet in Settings! Mac OS REALLY identifies my PC as native Mac!

You are awesome, man!

If your USB drive has a partition table (most of them do), then you need to install an MBR and make the first partition active:

Warning: If you choose the wrong device node here, you might destroy data, so be careful.

Warning: Please use the drive itself in the following command, not the first partition!

Open up terminal and type:

diskutil list

You should get a list of your drives and partitions, look for the drive you are booting from and it's first partition (in most cases it would be /dev/disk0p1)

double check the the drive number, then in terminal:

dd bs=512 conv=notrunc count=1 if=path/to/boot/sector of=/dev/diskPutNumberHere

Don't worry, you can't fuck up your partition/drive with writing it's first 44 blocks because there is nothing more then your MBR. Just make sure you are writing the right file! If you still can't do it PM me and I'll try to help out

You can read all about MBR here:

First, after installing if clover don't wants to boot make sure that

THAT YOUR TARGET PARTITION IS ACTIVE! terminal:

sudo fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0 (rdisk0 is a example, rdisk not disk, stands for RAW)

type p

you will get a list of partitions on your drive

type f 1 <-- number of the partition to activate, usually 1

type write to make the changes

type y since you are sure about it

type exit

reboot

be happy

thanks inoperable. I'm getting stuck at your first post: formatted fat32, mbropen terminalTyped in dd bs=512 conv=notrunc count=1 if=path/to/boot/sector of=/dev/disk5s1 (my usb stick is disk 5 and tried all variations 5p1, 5s1 and 5)result: dd: path/to/boot/sector: No such file or directoryMaking the disk active, no problem there.i still don't understand what I'm missing, if most of the people can getting Clover up and running by simply formatting their usb sticks with Disk utility, FAT32 mbr and installing Clover according to instructions.Frustrating stuff...

@ratanka31: Mate, it's clear that it didn't found such directory - because it's an example! you should put there your path instead -> or do you think somone seriously puts their boot sectors in such path?

--> /path/to/boot/sector... ;-) all the bootsectors are in the other .zip file.

I installed the Clover on disk with the established Mountain Lion, my partition scheme GUID, boot stuck on boot0: done7

Help, what should be done to start the Clover?

Clover Set to GUID partition at all realistic? Or is it only set the MBR?
