I have a running Yosemite 10.10.5 installation using Chimera.

I wanted to see if the system would boot using Clover so I created a Clover/Yosemite test USB using Unibeast 6.1.1

The machine boots OK but only in low graphics mode. I have nVidia Web Drivers installed and selected but using the test USB it will only boot with low (slow) graphics mode.

I have looked at the Clover configuration Graphics Injector Menu:

I have ticked all boxes individually and all together but the system still boots with low quality graphics.

Is there anything else I can try? It's putting me off trying Clover as my boot method.

My machine specification is in my profile.

After installing the web drivers, are you booting with nvda_drv=1?

Yes, when I boot from the installed SSD, this problem only happens when I boot from the Clover USB drive.

When I boot from the main SSD using Chimera my Yosemite installation works without any errors, I only created the Clover USB drive to test if my hardware could boot using Clover.

Can you post your config.plist from your USB drive?

You were injecting intel in the graphics section of your config.plist.. Try this one View attachment 163495

I have replaced the .plist but the problem is not resolved, the machine still boots with low quality graphics.

This is a screen-shot of my desktop when booting from the Clover/El Cap USB test drive:

As can be seen the Nvidia Web Driver is selected however mouse pointer movement is jerky and the screen refresh rate is very slow. Also when I look into System Preferences/Displays my monitor is not recognised and is described as a '32" Monitor'

This is a screen-shot of my desktop when I boot into Yosemite from my main SSD:

Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 11.53.42 copy.jpg

The machine runs great with perfect graphics using the Nvidia Web Driver and in System Preferences/Displays my monitor is correctly identified as a 'BenQ GW2760'.

Any other ideas I can try?
