I've never used clover with the P8Z77 but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Clover is a much better bootloader. If I were setting up this machine again I would definitely be using Clover, not Chameleon. My 3 current builds are all using Clover with no issues.
You guys with the Z170N Gaming 5 motherboard...
I noticed this one only has one USB 2.0 internal header and only USB 3.0/3.1 on the back. Are you installing with the Clover USB in a USB3 port? I was considering this motherboard for a new build. Its been a while since Ive built an osx86...
Appreciate the work, tigersoul925.
Clover boot loader
Installed .kext using Kext Wizard and restarted. No darkwake entries needed. Working as expected. I'm using optical out. Other ports probably working as well but I did not test them. Done deal.
Updated via App Store. At the end, I had a black screen with mouse cursor for a few minutes. I figured I would try typing in my login password even though I couldn't see the prompt. As soon as I pressed return, the desktop appeared.
Everything working the same as before, no issues.
The Black Friday sales on all of these 21x9 monitors got my attention. I picked up this HP Envy 34c today @ Microcenter. I went in for the Dell but the HP was $300 cheaper and I was impressed with the picture quality and decent speakers. I'm loving all of this screen real estate.
I realize this was 3 months ago, but...
Thanks for posting this. I had similar issues and removing GenericUSBXHCI.kext resolved it. I don't think your Samsung EVO SSD had anything to do with it. I am using a Crucial MX100 SSD.
