Hi,
this is my first post in this forum, so i hope im not doing anything wrong...
In fact, I had a working setup (Dell 790MT with i7 2600 and gt 710 with UEFI mode). Now I decided to upgrade my GPU as I want to buy a 4k monitor soon. Unfortunately, I havent managed to boot with the rx 570 (sapphire nitro+ 4GB edition + 550W PSU) since ill always get a blackscreen after the apple logo. I also did some research which led me to the lilu+whatevergreen kext and activating RadeonDeInit. Still i cant boot even the card should actually be supported according to the internet (Booting with -x didnt work either btw.). Verbose mode showed:

1) with kexts loaded
2) without kexts loaded


I hope someone can help me, im appreciating everyone trying to help me :)

Ive also attached my EFI folder, if anyone finds a mistake id be very glad

This is wrong, all kexts should be in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other.
All of the 10.* folders should be deleted.

Thank you, actually I've read that it doesn't make a difference bc clover will inject the kexts anyway... Unfortunately it doesn't boot with all kexts in /other either... :(

Have you tried it without the RadeonDeInit flag? I'm using that card in Mojave and it works great with Lilu+WhateverGreen and no flags or options enabled related to graphics in Clover.

As a side note, I do get a black screen on my setup when Lilu+WhateverGreen fail to load. I'd make sure Clover is injecting the kexts properly (which is what @P1LGRIM was alluding to above).

I tried to boot with and without RadeonDeInit but it didnt work either. What do you mean with properly injecting the kexts? How Can i actually check wether they are loaded? Ive already moved all kexts into the others folder as Pilgrim suggested which didnt help unfortunately...

If you can get the system to boot with some kind of graphics, you can use the Hackintool (formerly Intel FB-Patcher) to see if the kexts are loaded-see attached picture.

I have moved all 3rd party kexts to /System/Extensions as recommended here and have had no issues. Previously, I had all kexts in "other" in the EFI folder like you have and kept "Inject Kexts" in the System Parameters section of Clover Configurator to "Yes" and that was working fine as well.

I also would delete any remaining settings from the Graphics section of Clover Configurator...Mine is on the left, your current one on the right.

Im completely Desperate now. I tried everything you have suggested (disabled any graphic settings in clover, installed all kexts to /Library/Extentions) but the same error appears all the time. Im really about to give up now :(
(btw I can't use the FB patcher due im not able to boot so I can't run the app unfortunately)

What I don't get is that in the clover settings the card shows up as RX 480 while it's an 570 actually
