Only Bootable with Clover USB

Recommended Posts

I made  a clover-chamaleon using BootDiskUtility v2.0.2014 rev.181b -- I installed OS X Maverick 10.9.0

- After I first installed I could not get it to boot using multiple bootflag methods

- I Booted off the Clover USB

- I quickly hit option #2 before it auto defaulted to #6 which I believe autogenerated an chameleon install and the OS X Mavericks account setup appeared so I finnished the install

- Now OS X is only bootable through the Clover USB, when I push F12 for boot options, the drive is there but it wont boot from the HardDrive I have to select USB-HDD then boot into clover and Clover sees Mavericks

- I double click on it and it boots right into Mavericks

- My EFI Folder contains a "Boot" folder and a "CLOVER" folder

- My "Extra" Folder has a com.chameleon.plist file and a smbios file with BIOS version


Im confused on what to do to straighten this mess out

-I want to use Chameleon but clover usb is the only way it will boot into Mavericks


- Clover installed chameleon from the usb when I pressed option #2 before it defaulted to #6 (also known as option #1)


-By "primary" Im assuming that You mean setting it as the first option to boot from in the BIOS? CDROM is set to boot first, then the bootable H.D.D.


- I have windows 7 64 installed on a separate raid0


-I manually go into BIOS and change from AHCI to RAID when i want to boot into windows RAID0 partition

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:

      My config.plst can be found here:

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
