  1. Hi Jake, I applied the EFI and everything is working. Thanks for the help as I wouldn't have been able to get this working without you!
  2. Thanks for the help. Not sure if I got everything you mentioned (I don't know a lot about this). When I booted up I am not getting "Couldn't alloc class AppleIntelpchseriesahci" Attached is my updated EFI Edit: I tried the patched CtlnaAHCIPort.kext but still getting the same error message. E5540_2020_02_28-1.zip
  3. I tired a E6540 EFI and while I was able to get the installer working, when it tries to go into the first bootup, the screen goes dark. I can hear Siri so it seems that it is in. I checked the config.plist and see the correct value of 0600260A which is needed for my i5 Haswell. Can someone review my config.plist in this EFI and see what could be wrong? EFI.zip
  4. Still not sure what is going on. I was able to use this EFI for a 5430 and was able to install Big Sur installed. I was even able to get this to boot and at least sound is working. The only problem is that the system is really slow. I then over-wrote the EFI that was updated by Jake and it doesn't seem to work. If anyone is able to see what might be causing the slowness I can try to edit the 5430 and see if I can get further. Thanks
  5. Is it possible that the two bootloaders somehow are running simultaneously and causing the booting issue for the installer? The reason I ask is because while I have been trying some different configurations, I have not touched my original Clover bootloader for Mojave since I installed it. Verbose was turned off. Now when I boot Mojave it is showing the verbose. Something in one of the USB bootloader is causing changes to the Mojave installer.
  6. Trying now. Will update in a few minutes. Here is the latest.
  7. I had pulled the drive since the one I currently have was Mojave. I thought that was an issue. I can't get the installer to work without a drive? I just wanted to get into the GUI to see if it works before swapping the drive.
  8. Seems like the error is worse now as it is garbled up.
  9. Sure I'll give it a try and let you know. Thanks for you help!
  10. Attached is my current EFI for Mojave. I just don't know where to start with this. I tried to update clover to the latest version and when I try to boot Big Sur I am getting an error usr\\standaloOS.dmg.root_hash. If someone can help me out with what my config.plist needs to look like and what I need to add/remove with kexts I would appreciate it. Thanks EFI_MOJAVE_E5540.zip
  11. Hello, I downloaded the Olarila 11.2 Big Sur Image image and wrote it to a USB drive. I then replaced the OC folder with the one from OP here and when I boot I am getting the following error OC: Plist Kexts\CodecCommander.kext\Contents\Info.plist is missing for kext Codeccommander.kext Halting on Critical Error EDIT: Sorry I thought the OC folder I used was for a E5540. My mistake.
  12. Thank you once again. Looks like anyone with this model can use the attached EFI folder.
  13. Found one more issue not sure if we can fix it. The trackpad works and even the gestures to scroll up and down work, but I am not able to tap the pad to click.
  14. I went back and it looks like I missed the copying of the kext file. Everything is working now and here is the EFI folder. Thanks again for your help as always. EFI.zip
