Hi,
I just installed Ubuntu on my second SSD, but the installation does not show up in clover. I tried it with a seperate EFI partition on the Ubuntu drive and by installing the bootloader onto the same EFI partition as clover, but nothing seems to work. I also tried to put a custom entry in my clover.plst, but that does not help either.

These are my drives:

Code:
ben@BenBigUbuntu:~$ sudo blkid
[sudo] password for ben:

And this is my custom entry:

                    <string>Internal</string>
                </dict>
            </array>
        </dict>

Do you have any idea how to get clover to show the ubuntu installation? I already made sure Ubuntu was indeed installed with UEFI, so this cannot be the problem.
Thanks in advance!

Hello, I think, that your problem is because Mac-Sierra is installed in UEFI mode, while Ubuntu does not seem to, try to install both in UEFI mode.

Personally I had a triple-boot like this: win10 / elementaryOS on the same hard drive, and MAC-sierra on another hard drive; All O.S. Installed in UEFI mode and partitioned disks with GPT table; And from Clover he could enter any of the three O.S. without any problem

no, Ubuntu is installed in UEFI as well. I made sure the installer booted in UEFI and checked for the UEFI messages while booting the installed Ubuntu, and they showed.

Do you have Clover config.plist Scan Entries->Linux=Yes?

The only trick that worked for me was using the ext4 driver from rEFInd. Grab the rEFInd zip file from http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/getting.html, uncompress and copy drivers_x64/ext4_x64.efi to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI in your ESP partition. Remove VBoxExt4-64.efi from drivers64UEFI if already present. No need to tweak config.plist, Clover should discover the Linux entry automatically.

On my system I had to additionally enable Linux under GUI. Most important rebuild kext caches.
