Folks:
Following instructions here: How to Set Clover to Automatically Boot System Drive to edit /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist to adjust default boot volume and timeout only half worked. I've set the timeout from 5 to 10 seconds but switching the default from the Rescue partition to the system volume didn't make that actually happen. After rebooting I went back to the EFI volume to double check the config.plist and my edit is there all right but being ignored. Any ideas?
Thanks,
- Scott

What is the last version/ revision of Clover which supported Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5?

Im using clover 4630.
Im stuck at high sierra bcoz my videocard.

Should I update clover to 5125 or is pointless?

If yes, is just go to clover configurator and click in update?
If you want to stick with High Sierra, r5125 will bring you minor benefits but huge troubles.

I would suggest version R5119, which has always worked the best for me on High Sierra, both on my "Mini-ITX 1" and Mini-ITX 3" (below). I run R5126 on "Mini-ITX 4," but that computer runs Catalina and it boots more slowly on 5126 than it did on 5119. Also, getting to R5126 involves learning some OpenCore stuff like "Quirks" which is not all that easy. "Mini-ITX 2" is also on Catalina, but still runs R5119, which works fine.

[Edit: Update... both "Mini-ITX 2" and "Mini-ITX 4" are now successfully running OpenCore 0.6.4 on Catalina. (I still prefer Clover R5119 if staying with Clover.)]
