Issues i have seen yet haven't fixed:
so far I've noticed two issues,
firstly at times i have noticed the windows track pad gestures stop working but the gestures in mac continues to work.
secondly at times when laptop is put to sleep then woken up sound doesn't work.
Now onto the good stuff! Before i start would like to thank Rehabman for his guides and vladichimescu for his config.
This guide will consist of the complete installation, including creating a Mac OS installation usb with clover.
Creating the installation usb:
THIS WILL NEED TO BE DONE ON A MAC.
You will need of course a 8GB usb stick and mac OS Mojave image
First you need to know your USB disk identifier, to do this we will use Terminal.
Once you found your disk identifier. we need to create the correct partitions.
# repartition /dev/disk1 MBR, two partitions # first partition, "CLOVER EFI" FAT32, 200MiB # second partition, "install_osx", HFS+J, remainder diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk1 2 MBR FAT32 "CLOVER EFI" 200Mi HFS+J "install_osx" R
Now that we have changed the partition and the correct boot sector. we can now install clover onto the usb
Firstly download clover installer, run it.
then on the installer package we need to set the target location, this will be 'clover EFI'.
Next select customize.
check install for uefi booting only.
now install it onto the usb.
okay now copy the clover files from my git-hub to your clover setting, merge the files with your current one.
Now that we have created the partitions and installed clover onto the usb. we now move onto installing the installer onto the usb so we can boot the installer and install the OS onto the hard drive.
we will use createinstallmedia to do so.
This is a simple command we will use. before we do this line of code in terminal make sure you have downloaded Mojave.
# copy installer image sudo "/Applications/Install macOS Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia" --volume /Volumes/install_osx --nointeraction
Okay we are ready to move to changing the BIOS config.
only couple things to change.
- disable "VT-d" (virtualization for directed i/o)
- disable fast boot
- disable secure boot
- change the boot mode to uefi with csm.
turn off the laptop then when you click the power button, press F4 (i think it was) to chose the boot manger. select your usb.
clover should show up. don't worry, if theres no background and it doesn't cover the full screen.
select install_osx, as this is the usb partition.
wait for the installer to boot.
once it loads, click onto disk utility so we can partition the hard drive as GPT. on the hard drive you wish to install mac OS onto. create a Mac OS X Extended (journaled) partition to the formatted partition. Now click off the disk utility and proceed to install the OS. this will extract the files needed and verify it. it may take some time(even through you see 1 min remaining). once its done restart and boot to the usb again using F4. Now, click once again install_osx NOT the target partition but the installer partition(usb partition). this will continue to install the OS and create the partitions needed.
You will need to redo these steps one more time.

Once you done all that. you can now boot to the partition you wished for mac os to install onto. it should say "Boot OS X from YourPartition". "YourPartition" will be named depending on what you chose in Disk Utility.
It will now finish the installation and you will be on the desktop.
you should now install Clover onto your hard Drive and copy the clover config, kext, etc to the hard drive.
Best of luck with your hacking!!! please let me know anything you find that works/ doesnt work so i can update this guide.
if you do fix anything please help me update this guide so more people can benefit from this.
Overview One of the first challenges you'll face in installing OS X to your laptop will involve getting the OS X installer to boot from USB. This guide is for those wishing to use Clover (and in fact the only bootloader supported here). Both installing using Clover UEFI and Clover legacy are...
