use later version as Rehabman's don't work on later Mojave or Catalina
What driver setup/custome settings should I use to install the latest build? Is the build I posted the newest?

Finally, we need one EFI driver not included in the Clover installer, HFSPlus.efi:
- it can be downloaded from here: https://github.com/JrCs/CloverGrowerPro/raw/master/Files/HFSPlus/X64/HFSPlus.efi.
- copy it to /EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI

Note: Please, DO NOT forget HFSPlus.efi. Without it, you won't see any HFS+ partitions, including the HFS+ partition that the OS X installer is on.
Is this true with the current version of clover Release v2.5k-5103?

Hello - sorry I'm probably posting this on the wrong place but it says I can't start a topic until I have 75 posts? Anyhoo - I have followed the guide, downloaded rehabmans clover fork - but how do I install it? I can't see an installer file?

you are better off using a later version of clover as Rehabman's doesn't work on Mojave or Catalina

Thanks - but as my laptop has an Nvidia RTX2070 I thought there were no drivers after High Sierra?

there are no drivers at all for RTX2070 for any version of macOS

best you check in windows device manager and see if you have intel graphics as well

please read the faq for proper hardware profile setup:

Thanks for that - I have read through the post but still unclear as to whether I should now install Catalina and use the on board intel graphics - will this enable QI/QE? If not, there's really no point in going any further :(
