Latitude 7490: no macOS partition in Clover Boot Manager

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

For the first time in weeks, I shutted down my computer for a fresh restart. Unfortunately, the clover boot manager doesn't show the MacOs installation anymore. I was on Catalina 10.15. Can I do something? The version of Clover is 5107.

 

Also by pressing F3 (checked in the clover boot help) it showed the recovery boot option. I tried to reinstall Catalina from there. But it didn't worked saying something about an APFS problem.

 

Last hypothesis : maybe I must follow this lead in order to put the missing OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi file in the right place?

 

After some searching, I found that the HFSPlus.efi is now missing in FS1:\EFI\CLOVER\drivers\UEFI. I think this is why the MacOS is not showing in the clover boot manager. Can anyone telle me how I can put it back? And why it disappeared in the first place?

 

Thanks!

If you have VboxHfs.efi, it'll do the same unless you also have it disabled in the Config file, then you'll need HFSPlus.efi

Either try booting with a working USB drive with all the files needed or mount the EFI partition from Windows if you're dual booting and add the files.

Thank you for your reply!

 

Unfortunately I don't have VboxHfs.efi. I tried to use HFSPlus.efi alone. No difference. I'm now reinstalling from the beginning. I think it has something to do with a certain update of Catalina which changes profoundly the names and locations of important files.

 

Do you know why HFSPlus.efi is gone? Is it because I'm now running 10.15.5?

No, can't explain how HFSPlus.efi would disappear. I have 10.15.5 running perfectly fine with HFSPlus.efi. Check your root drive for EFI-Backups. See when's the last time HFSPlus.efi is in your drivers/UEFI folder when you upgrade Clover.

Since I'm doing it form scratch I just noticed that HSFPlus is not in the menu of clover bootloader version r5107. Should I replace HSFPlus by something else? Say VBoxHfs?

Wasn't HFSPlus.efi module removed from Slice's recent versions? You'd get it from older versions like r5103 off Did's Github repo.

Ok! Seems to be working with VBoxHfs.efi alone. I will try to replace it by HFSPlus.efi and see if it works. I'm sure there something awkward between 10.15.4 and 10.15.5...

 

@Hervé, when you say : "The macOS Install Data folders in /System/Volumes/Data, however, had to be manually removed to get rid of the temp partition" in updating to 10.15.5, can you explain to me what exactly need to be done?
