Hello. i'm sorry to bother, i tried to modify my DVMT memory size.
i tried setup_var 0x18C 0x3

And i had error: can’t set variable using efi (error: 0x000000000000001a)

how can i fix it?
Setting DVMT-prealloc is off-topic here. You should open a separate thread...

Please fill out your profile as requested in post #1.

Note: Some computers encrypt the BIOS options and do not allow it to be set with setup_var. For these laptops, you would need to use the minStolenSize patch instead and hope for the best.

You should read post #2 regarding bootmgfw.efi rename and/or efibootmgr to set Clover as default boot.

You should check your EFI partition to see that you have what you think you have in \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI.

Note: Make sure your disk is partitioned GPT.
I did it!
For have success i have put bootx64.efi in the root of the efi disk.
Maybe asus as a different format for the path,if i use /efi/clover/bootx64.efi don't work

/EFI/CLOVER/BOOTX64.efi not expected to work.

UEFI spec requires \EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.EFI
