Hi there,

I've successfully installed my Mac Pro 5.1 with UniBeast.
I can boot it successfully from USB drive, but I can't get it to boot from the hard drive.

I have installed Clover in the HD EFI folder.
My approach was, rather than run Multibeast, clone the USB EFI folder to the HD EFI folder.
Originally, the HD EFI only contains the APPLE folder, I kept it and copied CLOVER and BOOT folders.

I just can't seem to boot it from the hard drive.
I started suspecting of some BIOS or AHCI stuff. I see at start up "AHCI BIOS not installed".

I have updated the BIOS version to FF (it was originally FE, the FH didn't work out as well) which complies with cpu-upgrade specs

Also did notice some noise around Marvell controller... I am wanting to use the gSATA 6Gb that the mb has.
The bios configs I have are pretty much these ones

Am I heading in the right direction? What am I missing? Thoughts are appreciated...

Thanks
