OK, just got the EFI folder contents PRIOR to doing the upgrade from a drive I moved into a Windows 10 machine... oh boy that was a process.
So now I at least have the original EFI contents. Seeing if I can now get that into the USB drive and maybe boot off this darn SSD to get back to working...
No (clearly). Haha. Sorry. Never goofed up an update like this before. Trying to strategize how to get back in.
can I spin up a new USB drive with clover to get access to my drives and replace the files? Was on clover 5118 on Catalina. Completely stuck at the moment. No direction to go. Help?
I dont know why... i thought it was required to update clover too. Boy was I wrong. Now I cannot boot to my SSD after updating Clover... and I cant boot to my backup OS drive either. Get the same message. Trying to figure out another way to fix this so I can boot to my backup drive... restore my...
Still cannot update Clover (on 4945) running 10.15.3.
Open Clover Configurator, mount EFI on boot disk, then go to install/update clover (image). Then I click the "update" button (package option). After entering my password I get this error message "Cannot install without ensuring file system...
Pretty simple as well. Updated Lilu, AppleALC and Whatevergreen. Downloaded update from App Store. 3rd reboot and back! No issues. Can't THANK YOU all enough for the continued support. Great stuff everyone!
So I've been running a cheap Logitech wireless combo keyboard/mouse. Been working GREAT since building the hackintosh. Recently upgraded to Apple Magic wireless keyboard, IOGEAR bluetooth USB adapter and new Logitech MX Master 2S mouse. Expected this to be smooth, but anything but.
Now on boot...
Hi all, been using my Hacintosh trouble-free for a few years (thanks to this site). Recently replaced the wired setup with new Apply wireless keyboard and Logitech MX Master 2 mouse. Mouse works great, came with little USB bluetooth module, but the keyboard won't connect, or work on boot...
I found the board ID just fine... but the entry I have in my config.plist doesn't look the same as the one you posted. This is the only entry with the matching board ID. Do I delete this entry?
HaHa! I made that realization last year... Switched over to a Radeon RX 580, and now everything is super smooth with upgrades etc. If you can swing it, switch. So much better as a Hacintosh. Now that I said that, Apple will switch again (Newman!!)
OK. Got it!
I was struggling with how to update Clover Boot loader... but once that was done, it's gone pretty smoothly.
1) Backed up current boot drive (to spare SSD)
2) Upgraded to newest Clover (r4674)
3) Updated Lilu.kext and AppleALC.kext to newest version (EFI\CLOVER\KEXTS\OTHER)
