    Clover installed EFI mode does not work on X58 PCH boards. I had success post install using MultiBeast and installing Clover Legacy root mode.

    Thanks for your response. At this point I am unable to install El Capitan. I just made a Yosemite install USB, to try and recover my Yosemite install. If I am successful at recovering, I will try and install Clover in Legacy Root Mode on Yosemite and see if it boots. If it does boot, I will try a direct update to El Capitan.

    Hi everybody, I read the whole thread but I'm still confused on how to proceed to reach my objective that is the following:
    Upgrade Yosemite to Sierra, jumping over El Capitan, and switching the bootloader Chameleon to Clover.
    At present I'm booting Yosemite in a multi boot system (Windows 10 on board) with Chimera and everything is perfectly set up.
    So I wish to follow some steps to reach my goal:

    1) Switch Chimera to Clover, obviously mantaining both OSs perfectly bootable.
    2) Prepare Yosemite to upgrade. I already set System Definition to iMac 14_2 and I downloaded Sierra from Apple Store
    3) Upgrade Yosemite to Sierra with Unibeast following the reccomended method on Tonymacx86
    https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...ierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.200564/

    Just a brief summary of my troubles:
    1) set up a USB disk with Clover release 3766 I used as a standalone app.
    I prepare the key with the kexts and other files (also a config file downloaded from this site) but I immediately hang because I cannot boot due to boot0af error.
    To bypass this situation I try to boot the existing installation of Yosemite with the other usb key set up for point 3. At Clover options I set the same parameters I use for Chameleon (PICRootUID=1, cpus=1, npci=0x3000)and Yosemite reaches the login page but remains stuck so that I need to switch off my PC.
    I don't want to be very detailed with my troubles, but can you address me to solve my troubles?
    Many thanks in advance
    bye Rommy

    All of those boot-args are not required. Try with the attached config.plist

    Thank You Going Bald,
    I was able to USB boot into Yosemite. My main trouble at present is missing W10 option into Clover. As soon as I solve this issue (have to test bcdboot command applied to W10 HD), I'll try to stabilize Clover booting from HD instead of USB.
    Need next weekend to perform some tests.
    bye

    Studied enough to have success!! At least as far multi booting Yosemite-Windows10 is concerned.
    Now I'm engaged on the third challenge: upgrade Yosemite to Sierra on my system, an ancient X58A UDR3 with FH BIOS.
    Hope to start and reach my goal without too many obstacles.
    Thank you, bye

    I am contemplating Yosemite to Sierra also... I too have X58A UDR3 FH BIOS. Thanks to @Going Bald, I have confidence.

    Yeah! I definitely succeeded yesterday. Now I boot Sierra 10.12.1 on my system.:clap::clap::clap:
    After having set up correctly items 1 & 2 of my steps, I decided to boot following this guide:

    https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/direct-update-to-macos-sierra-using-clover.201465/

    What's important is to erase the Yosemite partition where you want to install the new OSX. Previous backup obviously recommended.
    In my case, Clover is already installed in EFI partition already configured with previously set up config.plist.
    Kexts saved in clover folders as described in the guide.
    Sierra booted with no troubles.
    Completed the configuration with Multibeast with ALC 889 kext. Beware to have EFI partition mounted while launching Multibeast.
    Try, seems easy:crazy:
    Bye
