Hi, I have installed OS X on my system using clover some time ago. Everything is working, but after months I haven't found a way to set the boot screen with the apple logo at 1080p using the GTX 760.

Now I still have Yosemite (I know, I should upgrade it, but I don't have a backup disk atm)

Thanks for any advice :)

Are there black bars around everything or is it actually at a lower resolution? That card should support 1920x1080 in VESA mode so it should be able to display 1080p during the boot process.

The apple logo is stretched and big, and I have no idea if there are black bars because the background is black. Maybe I have set it wrongly, I have done the same process as my laptop (it have chimera/chameleon).

Could you explain better? Thanks :)

There is a Clover setting to PatchVBios. What it does it enable a 1920x1080 VESA mode for cards that don't support it. More info is at the link I posted earlier.
