    Prevent Windows from overwriting Clover after updates

    I have done research on this and not yet found a permanent solution. Every time I do security updates to Windows, it overwrites my overwriting of the Microsoft EFI bootload with Clover's, and puts Microsoft's back. Then I have to boot from my Clover USB, and overwrite the file with Clover again...

    MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.7

    Just wanted to confirm here that it would be a very bad idea to install this on a Hackintosh, wouldn't it? Even with Clover. Is there any way I can disable the badge, and apple menu "App Store..." item since I'll never want to install it?

    which probook models have a higher res ?

    Yeah, I was looking at the 6K line of older ProBooks.. The problem is the same as with my 4530s - If you need to use Expresscard adapter, the connection is much less secure. FW800 is nice because the plug is a good fit for the connector, and the risk of it coming loose is low. Specifically I...

    which probook models have a higher res ?

    Yeah I agree, that's why I'm looking for an older MacBook Pro 2ndhand that still has the FireWire 800 port I need. Hackintosh was fun when I was in school but now I need a computer I can hopefully count on. Only thing I'm worried about is that some MacBook Pros are almost designed to start...

    which probook models have a higher res ?

    Hmm I am thinking of upgrading as well (I want to keep my 4530s running on the old Chameleon set-up I can revert to, and put all my best parts into a newer model). I'm having a good look now and can't really find any ProBooks at a reasonable price point that have the higher res. It might...

    Small trick for glitches on HD3000

    7. One last update - I went ahead and upped it to 1024MB... Results: Update: No luck. Can't get rid of these tiny glitches no matter what. My conclusion is that HD3000 just isn't up to the task on Clover with either Mavericks or Yosemite - glitches will persist no matter what you do (I...

    Small trick for glitches on HD3000

    I wish she was still with us to thank... RIP RevoGirl! Anyways, I am still getting the glitches with 512MB VRAM - I'll try 1GB but as you say I'm not hopeful. Ah I see what you mean - it just goes to show that I have no real expectations as I was a Windows user forever, and got into Mac...

    Small trick for glitches on HD3000

    Thanks for the tip! Are you using VGA or HDMI output on secondary monitor? I've been working on a few customizations to make things smoother as I settle into 10.10. One thing I insisted on doing is restoring Window maximize function which will get one of the needless animations out of the way so...

    Problem

    I've also learned to be fearful of Tuxera. There is Paragon NTFS as another option. The best compromise I've found is to allow each OS to read from each others drives, but not write. You can either have a Shared folder on each OS to read from, or make a dedicated partition (FAT32 sadly...

    Small trick for glitches on HD3000

    Thanks RehabMan, I think after going through all that troubleshooting (I had gotten that advice from you before), the outcome suggested that I change OSes so often that I can't avoid these glitches if I am coming nearly daily from Windows into Mac OS. I am developing cross-platform...

    Small trick for glitches on HD3000

    Advice for glitches on HD3000 Hello all, I am overall mostly happy after finishing my migration to UEFI triple-boot using Clover. The worst issue I now have that I didn't have before, is graphics glitches on Mac OS, which I assume is because I have the 4530s using the older HD3000...

    Graphics glitches and other issues migrating triple-boot from Chameleon to Clover

    Ah you were right - I can see that the modified date had indeed been bumped up on bootmgfw.efi, so it must have been updating. Hopefully having the latest version there as bootmgfw-orig.efi will keep it happy. And glitches are back after a single other restart... Maybe I'll keep this machine...

    Graphics glitches and other issues migrating triple-boot from Chameleon to Clover

    I found this: "using SwitchResX may be helpful with HD3000 graphic glitches. Read here: HP Probook 4730s" Do you think it could help in my case?

    Graphics glitches and other issues migrating triple-boot from Chameleon to Clover

    Thanks for the help - one last question: My Windows 8 installation keeps overriding the Clover bootloader. This means the only way I can get into Clover is hitting F9 and navigating to the EFI boot file. I only found one kind of trick that worked temporarily, but only until I boot into...

    Graphics glitches and other issues migrating triple-boot from Chameleon to Clover

    Somehow the glitches were (much) worse after adding the flag, but after removing it they seem to be gone. Obviously it's the sort of thing that needs to be tested over multiple boots, switching OSes, etc., but I've got my fingers crossed. It's a bit depressing to hear that a multi-booter is...

    Graphics glitches and other issues migrating triple-boot from Chameleon to Clover

    Hi all, Recently I decided to take the risk to migrate my stable-enough quad boot (Mountain Lion and Win 8 on main disk 500 GB Samsung 840 SSD, Mavericks, Ubuntu 14.04, and Shared FAT32 storage on 1TB HDD in optical drive bay caddy) to a Clover-based triple boot on a new disk (1TB Crucial...

    Yosemite for Probook with Unibeast?

    Seems like the writing is on the wall that's it's finally time for us ProBook/Chameleon users to upgrade to Clover? I suppose it might make sense to try and not support Bios-based installation if Clover is so stable now for HP laptops, but perhaps it would be possible to help Chameleon users...

    Few issues post install

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but after reading the review I was under the impression that Core Storage is not optional in 10.10: http://arstechnica.com/apple/2014/10/os-x-10-10/2/#installation

    OSX on a Microsoft Surface Pro

    I'll look into it. I finally took the plunge and picked one up. Looking forward to setting up another triple boot (or at least dual boot) if I can. Does anyone know if Clover will work? (sorry I haven't caught up to latest progress yet)

    Why do my Mac partitions keep getting serious errors?

    I definitely haven't messed with the partition scheme from Windows, in fact, I am trying to get it set up a certain way and leave it that way for the long term if possible (I just have to switch my shared storage partition to FAT from exFAT, which I'll do from Mac). As for the writes to Mac...
