ResetNVRAM: included into Opencore, available as a special tool when AllowNvramReset is set to true.Thanks... that would be my guess too. But I was hoping to find someone who actually knows. ClearNvram would be a good thing, depending on what it does not clear
But I think that variables stored in NVRAM are not in general from third-party software but rather equivalent to those that Apple uses on Macs. And there aren't many. At least this is the intention of the Opencore developers.Thanks to one and all. So judging by what I read here, "Clean" really means "reset" as they both do the same thing. Resetting the NVRAM can be problematic, having been there and done that. It may require, for example, booting from some other device and setting the boot device back to the built-in. I was kind of hoping for something that would (for example) leave the NVRAM with Apple's minimum requirements while clearing out the cruft that lots of third-party software sticks in there...
