6. When your have removed all entries that are not physical hard drives, typeand press the return key. This will get you back to the main Clover screen. At this point, I would choose restart from the Clover choices and enter the BIOS to check if your work was successful.Code:
Are they for three different partitions?After checking in BIOS three instead of one UEFI option remain. I go through the same procedure of removing the extra options, but everytime the persistent boot options reappear in the bios. Any suggestions on what to do about that?
Preboot and Recovery are part of your macOS installation (they are also APFS volumes on a single container partition with the root volume), you can hide them from the Clover menu e.g. using Clover configuratorbesides the one that is the correct Mojave one on the SSD.
All as expected.Clover shows four drives with the following texts:
"Boot Firevault Prebooter from Preboot" (icon shows APFS)
"Boot MacOS Install Prebooter from Preboot" (icon shows APFS)
"Boot MacOS from SSD_1" (icon shows APFS)
"Boot Recovery from Recovery" (icon shows Recovery)
Option 1 is UEFI boot from the fallback path /EFI/BOOT, option 2 is legacy BIOS boot (BBS = Bios Boot Specification) from the PMBR. Options 0 and 3 are intended for Apple EFIs, they point to boot.efi on the 'Preboot' volume, the specific APFS volume is described by its UUID in the VenMedia path.Options 01 and 02 are clearly on the SSD (main drive: a Kingston branded SSD), while options 00 and 03 do not reveal where they reside, at least not in plain text for humans.
It may be there is "optional" data attached to 1 and 2 but not 0 and 4.Notice the variable "Optional" - it says "N" for No on options 00 and 03, whereas it says "Y" for Yes on options 01 and 02.
No action required as long as Clover is starting when you expect it to.I assume this is how it should be - and that I don't need to try to remove any of those four options. Is my assumption correct?
Shouldn't be a problem.I am surprised that the two are not the same version of Clover ???
My bootoption program may provide more information.options 00 and 03 do not reveal where they reside, at least not in plain text for humans.
