I have a NUC7i3BNH, BIOS 49, Catalina, that has been booting via Clover. I want to convert to OC. I downloaded the 0.7.9 EFI from page 89 to a USB drive, added my platform info, and tried to boot. the picker screen shows just a single entry: EFI, which turns out to be the Clover EFI on my hard disk. I thought that hitting the space bar at the picker screen would show several other options, including Clear NVRAM, but not so.

so:
1) does the config.plist in the 0.7.9 EFI need to be modded for the NUC7?
2) do I need to update to a more recent BIOS?
3) are there any particular BIOS settings that might need to be changed from settings for a successful Clover boot?

thanks!

Hello @faithie999. I’m going to venture your USB boot drive is not properly configured. The answer to all your questions are no but to successfully migrate from Clover there are some additional steps to take. Please visit the Dortania Install Guide site and read the section on moving from clover to OpenCore.

This worked for me, turned off bluetooth and added the Alpha version of the Airportitlm.kext to support Ventura. OC version 8.3 with Lilu.kext 16.2

Remember we are in Beta country now, I'd assume it will work and may only require updating the AppleALC.kext which I didn't do. Did you try that yet? I also didn't check if it was working on mine which I will do next.
