Clover won't boot Windows unless Windows Install USB is plugged in

Recommended Posts

Hi, heres mt situation. I installed OS X for a friend yesterday and we almost have it working perfect. The problem now is that we can't get it to boot windows. When booting the PC the clover screen shows 4 options which are "Boot Clover from EFI" Boot Windows from" "Boot Mac OS X from Macintosh HD" and "boot recovery from Macintosh HD"

Clicking Boot Windows from results in a black screen and the only way to fix it is to reset the computer. I tried adding the NTFS.efi file and changing the boot to LegacyBIOSDefault but it didn't change anything.

Heres where it gets weird, Once it wouldn't boot Windows I thought Windows might need to be reinstalled. I made a UEFI windows install USB and tried to boot it. When I chose it as the boot device the screen flashed twice and then it brought me into the clover boot loader screen. I knew that shouldn't have happened but I decided to try booting the install flash drive from Clover and rather then booting the installer it took me straight into the windows install we have on the computer. I don't understand how this happened but for some reason attempting to boot the Windows installer from clover actually just boots windows. It's good that this lets us get into Windows but I would not like to have to leave that flash drive in there forever.


The current setup is that Windows is running on one partition of the SSD and Mac OS X is running on the other partition of the SSD. Booting into Mac works fine, booting into Windows is the problem

You have to use the windows recover function on usb/cd

Boot it , go repair menu and see if there is something wrong to be repaired...

Report if you resolve your issue

Hi, thanks for responding. The Windows install isn't corrupt. When it boots it works fine and never fails to boot once it starts. The problem, I believe, is with clover. When I plug in my Windows 7 installation USB and try to boot from it in clover it Boots into the Windows 10 install on my SSD. When the Windows 7 installer flash drive is not plugged in there is no way to boot into Windows.?
