    Hi I worked mac os x 10.8 using clover after unibeast
    I have been trying a lot of methods to do clover clean install for over than 6 months but I get on error of two every time
    1- if i remove the kernal caches lines or use -x (for safe mode)
    I get error loading drivers and going to sleep in 10 seconds.after the uuid.
    2- if i work it without them 1st stage done and the 2nd stuck on the installing bar running for ever.
    I asked before but no one answer.

    I've seen this when the Installer can't create the Recovery HD partition. It could be because you have more than three partitions (including the EFI partition) on the boot drive. With the Recovery HD, there can be only 4.

    As to booting without the kernelcache, I suspect the cause of your problem is that the kernelcache is lacking the FakeSMC and since the System folder hasn't been created yet, the kernelcache is necessary. I suggest that you try putting FakeSMC.kext into the clover's kexts/10.8 folder and add "WithKexts" to the end of your bootargs. This should allow everything to load properly and proceed with the install.

    I am really thankful for the answer
    Yes my 2 TiB has about 10 partitions including EFI and
    No I already have fakesmc in the kext folder in addition to evoreboot , elliotforcertc and nullcpupowermanagment
    if you have any suggestion about the kext or the cache I'll be honored
    and now how can i install Mac OS X with clover without the recovery error
    I've only one HDD and almost full so I can't repartition and I've Win 8,2012 server,7 and linux all EFI loaded through clover (I don't have UEFI yet in my Board :D )

    EDIT: By the way I have my hdd on Gpt not hypered like the one mac does. So the 4 primary partition limit is not valid with my I can have an infinite number of primary partition so that should not be my problem :D

    If you're not using GPT or UEFI, don't bother trying to do a clean install with Clover. You can install using Unibeast and then use the Clover bootloader afterward. As I said before, a standard install, with the Recovery HD partition will not work with logical partitions and there can only be 4 primary partitions.

    well I think you miss understood me.
    My HDD is formated from windows as GPT (GUID partition Table)
    while mac formate it as hypered which is GPT on mac MBR on windows.
    I have the Full GPT . then all my partitions are primary with avtive and bootable through ESP(EFI system partition)
    I don't have UEFI on Board but clover with bios mode it install a duet (UEFI through the flash card) so when mac starts it sees UEFI exists .
    and I use it to open Windows EFI.

    Mac GPT is also capable of having as many partitions as you want. The standard Installer will refuse to install on any but the first 4 (Primary) partitions and will also refuse to continue if there is no space to create another primary partition for the Recovery HD. Trust me this was a hurdle to install both Windows and Mac on one drive for EFI booting. The Windows installer doesn't like using the EFI partition that's already there, instead insisting on creating another using any space available on or off the boot drive.

    What I was saying is that if you're not booting UEFI, there's no need to use the standard installer. The Unibeast Installer is fine and clover will be happy with it.
