Clover start up delay
1 1

Question

Everything works perfectly on my 10.9.0 installation, with the exception of start up.  

If I turn my computer on and let it start by itself.  I get the Clover boot menu and the default Mavericks installation is selected.  If I do not touch anything there is a timer before it starts by itself.  Timer is set to 3000 seconds which translates in to 50minutes.  I can't imagine that someone would think of putting that in as default.

How do I change this to something a little more reasonable?

I have tried to figure that site out, but I cannot for the life of me find where the configuration file is, nor why it would be set to 3000 seconds.

VOLUMES/EFI/EFI/CLOVER

and that is where I would have looked also, but I have no EFI folder...even with hidden files and folders shown.

Also when I have tried to install Clover Configuration, it says there is no EFI partition and asks if I want to mount one...what's up with that?  I am in UEFI mode I believe as my bios showed that when I installed and I moved it to the top to boot from the UEFI first and it worked/works with the exception of this one bug that quite honestly I should be able to figure out.

Have you try Chameleon Bootloader? Is easier than Clover.

Did you also try:

/Volumes/YourHDD/EFI

Or you can just do a search for the EFI Folder Use the Searching Engine in your Hackintosh

ANSWER:

By You reinstalling the Bootloader doesnt need you to reinstall the whole operatin system.

But sometimes reinstalling Bootloader over another bootloader can make your

Os unbootable.sometimes not all the times.

My advice to you is if you are not having any issues with your bootloader other than

The one you having is to not install chameleon and just find the clover config

File in your hackintosh and modified the time issue you having

Duh...figured it out.

No one said that the EFI partition was hidden and had to be mounted..

 

a liitle bit of this 

mkdir /Volumes/EFI

and a little bit of this

sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFI

and VOILA!!!

everything is all good now.
