Are you certain it is getting stuck? I find the HwMonitor display is simply wrong (by up to 1%). It is rounding up where OS X does not. Therefore HwMonitor is wrong 50% of the time.

Yes, It shows 90% on status bar after on hour of video playback, as soon as I sign out and login it shows 40%. Searching the internet, I found that it sometimes happens in real macs too and needs the SMC to be reset but we don't have it on Hackintosh. I tried clearing nvram using "nvram -c" command but didn't work. Then I removed "EmuVariableUefi-64.efi" from EFI/ClOVER/driver64UEFI and guess what? Now it's working in the right way!! :)

Yes, because 7-series laptops do not remember NVRAM with Secure Boot disabled, remove EmuVariableUefi-64.efi is the same as EC Reset on real Mac. The downside without EmuVariableUefi-64.efi is that it does not remember brightness and findmymac after restart.

You can also try remove EmuVariableUefi-64.efi, restart, delete nvram.plist (hidden) in Mac drive, then recopy EmuVariableUefi-64.efi again.

I noticed that apianti added secure-boot capability, but I do not know the details of how to use it.

Only work with advanced UEFI motherboard/laptop. I saw on Dell Latitude E5430 UEFI, it has custom secure boot and other options for custom keys.

In HP Laptop, only two options: on/off. So we can forget it.

It doesn't work in this way (for me), Having the EmuVariableUefi-64.efi in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI results the battery percentage error... :(

What BIOS do you use?

/Library/Logs/CloverEFI/boot.log can be helpful too.

I'm using BIOS F.43. (UEFI without CSM) I did a clean installation without using EmuVariableUefi-64.efi. every thing was working good (I don't use Find My Mac) but Installing it through Clover Configurator causes the problem. Here is my boot.log file:

It looks normal, except that you included too many kexts in EFI\CLOVER\kexts\10.9\. Be caution that some kexts only work without cache/with kexts:

-HSSDBlockStorage.kext
-JMB38X.kext
-AppleHDA.kext
-AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext
-AppleIntelSNBGraphicsFB.kext
-AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient.kext (don't need this, patched by Clover)
-AppleRTC.kext (patched by Clover)

I need some confirmation from other 4540s users about battery problem with EmuVariableUefi-64.efi.

At boot screen, why does circle boot icon (under apple logo) distortion?

And REPORT: HPFanReset.efi make HWMonitor can not show fan speed (I use reading only fan patch in DSDT)
