E6440 with Clover

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm trying to install HS with Clover on my E6440 in UEFI mode. I followed Jake Lo's installation guide and created a usb installer using the appropriate Sierra bootpack from the same thread. I also applied the changes for HS to config.plist.

I can boot from the installer, but clovers boot screen doesn't show any devices.

 

Any advice?

Did you format the USB installer MBR? I'd recommend that. You should then be able to see the "macOS Install from ..." disk partition in the Clover list once the bootloader has loaded.

You need HFSPlus.efi in /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI which is included in the Generic EFI from my guide

 

 

Note: Bootpack (EFI) consists of combining the Generic EFI + the model you're downloading!!!

 

Instruction:

  1. Download the Generic EFI folder.
  2. Download model below and add the contents into the Generic /EFI/Clover  folder

Yes, either HFSPlus.efi or remove the entry VBoxHfs from disable drivers section in config.plist.

 

@Harve: Why do you prefer MBR over GUID?

Let's say that I've had issues booting HighSierra USB installer set with GUID scheme, not when they were set with MBR scheme.

Oh, ok.

 

Finally, I have installed HS on my E6440 after Jake Lo's hint about the generic bootpack. I guess I mixed up the meaning of "Sierra bootpack only" on step 2 when I created the usb installer.

 

Thanks for your help guys

      Welcome to OSXL! 😀
       
      We, at OSXL, are a bunch of passionate Hackintoshers who have joined together for creating a community to drive learning, sharing and helping people interested in running Apple Mac software or tinkering with it on non-Apple hardware. We do research and development on a voluntary basis in our free time.
       
      Since its inception in 2010, our team evolved with people joining and going for all sorts of reasons. Nevertheless, this team brought out some of the best people who contributed to making the Hackintosh community progress. Unlike some other players, we’re very proud to we have consistently offered an ad-free website without calling for financial support, except on very rare occasions, and also made one of the best looking sites.😍 
       
      Back in the days, we also designed our "EDP" project to provide a common OS X installation package and a unified post-installation tool. EDP basically offered a central hub for system tuning. The project went through several phase and the latest one is currently Work In Progress. We also completed some research work and developed drivers, fixes and patches for some hardware.
       
      We recently revamped our site to a more modern look and implemented latest security features so to give our members an improvise quality of experience.
       
      Also, we are looking to expand for diversifying the content on our site not only to Apple OS, but also Linux, Android and Windows in the very near future with research and development as tech industry has changed a lot recent years and there is so much we can do in other areas and be relevant to what we do. 
       
      We are looking for passionate and dedicated people who can invest time and efforts in our community on projects like EDP and many others. 
       
      Drop us a line here in comments or through PM if interested so that we can chat about motivation, skills and ideas.
