  1. I never created an MBR installation it was always UEFI based on a GPT partition. I am still trying to get this fixed and will keep reporting here as I get to the bottom of this. I reformatted the drive as GPT created new mac os x partition, Installed a fresh Windows copy after mac os x This created an MSR partition and was able to boot from windows and mac again but not using my windows image which I need to boot from. I restored the windows image again using Carbon Copy Cloner overwriting the existing working windows partition but leaving the MSR partition as it is it won't boot again. (I am still trying to fix this) This is another problem I would like to resolve I have Tuxera NTFS installed but when I try to restore the windows image using Diskutility on 10.13.3 it gives me an error saying :- Source image volume size is not an exact multiple of 1MiB. Even when I made sure the partition I am restoring the image to is larger than the original image size. Any ideas on this problem please? Thank you.
  2. Thanks for response. I initially created the disk partitions when I first formatted the disk as GPT under Mac OSx so the EFI 200 MB partition was HFS however I did format it as you suggest it as FAT 32 hoping it would work but it didn't. I converted it like this:- diskutil list diskutil unmount /dev/disk0s1 newfs_msdos -F 32 -v EFI/dev/disk0s1 diskutil mount /dev/disk0s1 I have 3 partitions 1- EFI 2- OSX 3- Windows This is what I did:- diskpart sel disk 0 sel par 3 assign letter=k: exit bcdboot f:\windows /l en-us /s k:all Failure when attempting to copy boot files f: is the letter of the USB which contains Windows 10 Installation Even though I've been unable to successfully copy the boot files, I still have the old boot files but I think I am a bit confused about the UEFI boot configuration in the bios, I tried to set it to point \EFI\Microsoft\bootmgfw.efi and select each of the different partitions so I created a number of different boot options to try but not working. one of them seems like it can boot but ends up saying:- Invalid partition table. I am able to boot into 10.13.3 using Clover just fine.
  3. I tried a few things yesterday specifically steps from this http://www.dell.com/support/article/au/en/audhs1/sln300987/how-to-repair-the-efi-bootloader-on-a-gpt-hdd-for-windows-7-8-81-and-10-on-your-dell-pc?lang=en When I type:- bcdboot c:\Windows /l en-us /s <boot letter>: All I get the following error:- bcdboot Failure when attempting to copy boot files Any ideas please?
  4. I will after tonight after work in about 8 hours but I suspect it won't work like that because if the windows installer repair section doesn't detect correctly created partitions it will just spit out an error. I think I know this from past experience but I will try it again anyway and report back. In the mean time if there other suggestions would be good.
  5. I was duel booting Windows 10 and High Sierra on E6540 just fine but sometimes I like to experiment and this time it fired back on me . Keep in mind that I was actually able to do the same thing in the past with Windows 7 but I am not sure what I am doing wrong here. I created a disk image of the Windows partition only I don't think I need any of the other partitions that windows create upon installation. I used to be able to boot Windows 7 partition using UEFI just with the windows partition, all other partitions were deleted. The problem: I restored the windows 10 image just fine to a second partition but when I modify the bios UEFI boot sequence to point to either \EFI\Microsoft\boot\bootmgfw.efi ---> Error code:0xc000000e or \Windows\Boot\EFI\bootmgfw.efi ---> Invalid partition table I also imaged the recovery 500MB partition just in case and restored it but I don't believe I need it to boot windows. I just like to know if its possible or not and if I am missing something. Thank you.
  6. I re-installed and its fixed now.
  7. Hi, my question is it possible for Clover to detect an installation for High Sierra on an encrypted APFS partition. I've been able to install it successfully on E6540 on just an APFS system but I'd like the drive to be encrypted. Am I missing a UEFI driver or its completely unsupported?
  8. Yes and I had to keep on doing it until it registered the AppleHDA_ALC292.kext so audio can work. sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E* sudo touch -f /S*/L*/E* sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E* sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E* sudo touch -f /L*/E* sudo kextcache -Boot -U / But still static noise from the headphones
  9. Hi, I read and followed Jake's comments in this thread so now audio is working but I am getting static noise from the headphones for E6540. I already put CodecCommander.kext in S/L/E I have abm_firstpolldelay=16000 Any idea why its doing that or what do I need to do to fix it? Thanks

    Hi, I would like to know if there is a way to use this great tool to point to a specific partition / volume? at the moment its pointing to the default loaded system but I am booting my mac installation from an external SSD partition that I always use to test new mac installation and its a bit tricky to get the tool to work correctly with that setup. It just keeps mounting the incorrect EFI partition. I managed finally to learn what's missing and fool the app but I am hoping it should support different EFI partitions. Thank you

    download not working

    Its stil not working. I hope it gets fixed soon, its amazing how critical it is for some.
  12. Just wondering if anyone would share some info / bootpack / patched DSDT.aml to get this to work please. Thanks
  13. I managed to fix the black screen issue using the following: dart=0 kext-dev-mode=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes PCIRootUID=0 -v [but still no No DSDT.aml and Optimus turned Off] I just need sounds and USB mouse to work now. Thanks
  14. I managed to boot a vanilla 10.11.0 using Clover with a simple EFI (No DSDT.aml) my USB mouse / Audio are not working which is a problem. But also the screen goes black unless I disable my Nvidia. I am hoping someone could help. Thanks
  15. Hi, I recently got El Capitan working on E7440 thanks to members and admin of this forum. I have the following machine as you can see from my signature and its my primary iOS development machine: Latitude E6530, BIOS A13 | i7-3740QM 2.70 GHz | 16GB DDR3 | nVidia NVS 5200M - VRAM: 1024 MB, 1600x900 | ML 10.10.2 | Yosemite | Sleep, No | Brightness, No I have tried a few things on my own but couldn't get 10.11.1 to work. I am using I'd like to know how to get it to work using Clover and I'll also try to get it to work using Enoch (which I think is a more enhanced Chameleon and has more support for El Capitan) I currently have my Bios SATA is set to AHCI and Enable Optimus is not checked but would be good to have this enabled. I have been booting 10.10.2 using DSDT.aml and SSDT.aml from Jack for a long time now but I don't know if I need to generate my own for El Capitan? If anyone has a bootpack to share, it would be appreciated. Thank you
