I want to start over clean, installing Windows first on a specific SSD with the over unplugged, following this guide. The thing is that if I start by making the Bios settings first, disabling legacy booting, I have only a black screen and can't do anything at boot. Windows doesn't boot, Clover...
I spoke too fast.
I replaced bootmgfw.efi in windows file by cloverx64.efi from clover file. But now, it can no longer boot in windows : if i select windows at clover boot screen, it will relaunch clover without any choice this time. I guess I did something wrong.
It does still work if I unplug Windows' SSD.
To be frank, I've red almost everything on the forums about this issue and I think I did all correct. My Windows installation was not legacy but UEFI, and I did not overwrite the Clover's EFI partition on disk0.
The only issue I keep having is the...
Actually, yes, I didn't unplug the first SSD in the same time. Is it an issue ?
I might reinstall windows from scratch to make sure i wont have troubles if you think it can be. Haven't used windows yet but will become part of my work computer to use windows only softs.
Yes, you just have to add them in clower in the Hide part ! I have same 8300 HP as you and it worked well :)
EDIT : nervermind, you already figured it by yourself !
I followed your solution, it works so far but I don't know for how long, as if i understand correctly, any windows update will...
I'll just add something that is kind of strange.
I installed a second SSD with Windows 10 on it, using a tonymac guide. Weirdly, I checked my BIOS settings, and they were back to default (port A enabled, legacy supported, etc.)
But (1) everything works fine and (2) if I change it back to...
Hi there ! Thanks for the guide.
What are my options if I want a working and fast wifi in my HP 8300 Elite SFF ? Is there any other choice than a cheap usb dongle with low speeds or a Apple native card about 100 bucks ?
I keep geting "Your computer has detected a potential problem" on every boot after 10/15 min use. Anyone has them or found how to disable them ? I always click not sending to apple, but would be glad to stop them from appearing in the first place
So far, I'm stuck on a weird issue : I'm at step 6 but don't understand why I have a shitty resolution and no other choice than 1024x768.... I'm using HD4000. I did Mojave install.
EDIT : maybe has something to do with the fact it's unusual ratio ? (21/9). But it does work on Mojave on Optiplex...
Hi trs96. As I couldn't find any good deal to build another Optiplex 7010 on your other guide, I started looking for HP 8300. I made a steal deal yesterday.
HP Elite 8300 SFF - i7 3770 - 16go RAM 1600Mhz - 256Go SSD. All for 160€ (around 179$).
I will follow your guide this afternoon and keep...
Thanks for your fast answer :) I will look for these.
I also found a Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3 Go, from what I've seen online, it's Metal compatible as well. It has quite good performance (almost a GT 1050) but has a huge format that wont fit in a SFF. Too bad, cause it was sold for 35 bucks...
Still looking for good deals to build another one :). Found a 7010 with i5 3570 and 4GB RAM for 80 bucks. As it does not have HD4000, I am now looking for the GPU options.
As it's a SFF, I don't want to go with a heavy buffy choice, as the airflow wont be sufficient IMO. But I would...
Maybe a dumb question, but is it possible to clone a almost-empty 500Go SSD on a 120Go SSD ? I mean, we only have to copy the OS part of the SSD, not the datas that I already have redundance of.
I want to make a bootable clone but I don't want to buy another 500Go drive !
