Error mounting EFI and now also installing clover into ESP

Recommended Posts

After completely giving up on my z87 rig i attempted to install os x on my main rig, an x99 ud5, gtx 970, 5820k. I managed to finish the install and then patch the install (bob roche's video guide). I used the bootflags -v -x -f npci=0x2000 cpus=0 nv_disable=1 to manage to install os x and get into os x. I then proceeded to install clover, which after some fiddling was a success. When opening the EFI Mounter (v2) i get a message "Would you like to mount or unmount EFI partition" although i never even created such a partition. If i try to unmount it, i get an error message saying that it is not mounted and if i try to mount it i get an empty folder. I need some advice on this. Thanks.


Update 1: When trying to create a partition with the command "mkdir /Volumes/efi" it says that it already exists. Then i go on to delete the partition with the command: rm -rf /Volumes/EFI. I then redo the command to make the directory and this time i get no error. HOWEVER, when i then try to mount the efi, either with the efi mounter or using the command "sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi" i get the error "no such file or directory". WTF! I just created it and now it's telling me there isn't one.


Update 2: When trying to recreate the EFI partition using "sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/disk0s1" i get one (or both) of the following errors: "msdos table is unavailable" or "/dev/disk0s1 is not a character device". When i do mount it with efi mounter as previously mentioned, i get an empty EFI folder.


Update 3: After reinstalling OS 10.10.4 multiple times (making sure to erase the drive before reinstalling), i cannot use the same settings to install clover (emu, fix1 and fix2). 

Update 4: I managed to install clover by unchecking the "install to esp", but i would like it to be installed on the esp -.-. Oh and on a side note, why is my screen displaying such low resolution, i get that when i install windows but in windows it is easily changed while on mac os x i am stuck at 1 resolution (probs just gotta install nvidia driver so this isn't a big issue atm). When mounting with efi mounter i once again get a message saying "do you want to mount efi or unmount" even though i didn't select anything, it doesn't look like anything which is shown on tutorials.

    • Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" 
    • I followed your tutorials which seems to be 1000% easy as its usually around the same as TonyMac, except your installs requires less to do and youve done most of the work too the package which makes it installing for us very easy. Now, the pic below shows a whole bunch of errors and I dont know why. Ive searched these forums and just like the title here, there is none which is odd, because from your tutorials, this shouldnt happen and it seems no one else is running into this problem, HOWEVER, if they did post something like this, Im 1, looking for the fix on high sierra, not sierra or tammy or roger or lutherin, 2 they need to check their titles again because its not helping anyone. I will say I did try installing Sierra Hackintish Zone version and it works all the way up to right after it installs, it tells me "it cannot be installed on this computer", SO....sigh, idk       So, to conclude, I do appreciate the devs here and much respect. Thanks for doing this. But guys, please help a bruh out and tell me how to fix this. Im using windows 10 as my main so do not tell me to go to do nothing on a mac, its the whole point of me coming here is to hackintosh. I do follow instructions fairly           well consider I teach Programming to the Military. My god bless this post and.....my soul too tbh <3       
    • Hello, I want to know what I have to do to install Kexts, use clover configurator, install bootloader, change resolution and how to use multibeast according to my hardware. I'm new to this mac configuration process. For now my hackintosh is pure, with no driver installed wifi, ethernet, graphics etc .. Sometimes when I start hackinstosh gives the Kernel Panic and stops loading on the apple screen, but I reboot and load normally. And also after a few minutes using the macOS it freezes the screen. I used the Hackintosh Zone Niresh Sierra because it was the only one that successfully installed on my notebook. My hardware is: Notebook Samsung Expert x23 Intel HD Graphics 5500 I5-5200U Processor Nvidia Geforce 910M 2GB 8 GB RAM HDD 1TB Bluetooth
    • @Niresh Now i have another Problem! How do i get HDMI Video to work? I'm only getting a Black Screen when i try to connect a Monitor
