In order to boot Linux, I also activated the OpenLinuxBoot.efi and keep the "BlessOverRide item0" (see the picture). It works as before and I don't see the interest of OpenLinuxBoot.efi

The interest of OpenLinuxBoot.efi (beta stage, it can be improved in following builds) is that OpenCore can detect and boot linux automatically, as it does for windows, without custom entries or blessoverride. This way OpenCore boots linux without requiring grub as intermediate. I think it's a great improvement.

My first tests didn't succeed with Linux when I removed BlessOverRide item0.
I will retest next friday.

I think you don't have last configurator, see mine, drivers section is up to date with Enabled column. And in the title bar I see 0.7.3 development but now it must be 0.7.3 release or 0.7.4 development. It's 2.49.0.2.

@Feartech is right, I mainly use ProperTree or plain text editor but if configurator is really up to date it makes easier to edit config.plist. Always carefully.

Any reason not to use OpenHFSPlus.efi instead of HFSPlus.efi?

Yes you are right, I changed the option from Xcode and the GUI came back. I never seen this option before and it is not visible from OpenCore Configurator.

Thank you !


@tof92130, @milicio

I have the same problem, my OpenCanopy selector /picker is not working. I'm just seeing the text picker.
I have made sure that OpenCanopy.efi is enabled in my config.plist.

I am attaching a copy of my config.plist, with most of the SMBIOS keys deleted, and renamed, otherwise exactly as I boot it.

I have had this problem in the past with OpenCanopy not working. Very frustrating, tried all my previous tricks to get it working.

Hi

Wondering if you could help me out. I am running OC 0.72 0.73 on my Hackintosh rig. My MoBo is an Esonic H81 one with Core i5 4750 processor and 12GB 1600 MHz RAM. I am running MacOS Big Sur on my WD SSD and Windows 10 & Kubuntu on my HDD. Everything is working perfectly except that every time I start up the machine OC's GUI Bootpicker doesn't show up. Rather "OC: Failed to load configuration!" - this message shows up each & every time. Only when I reboot the OC Bootpicker comes on the screen. Have no clue as to what the problem is. Googled it but no solution so far. I have attached my OC config & EFI folder.

Thanking you in advance.

PickerMode builtin?

@milicio

Yes changing the PickerMode to External brought it back to OpenCanopy graphic mode. :headbang:

Please remind me again how to set the default boot option in OpenCanopy. It is something like holding down the command key and hitting yhe enter key?

Thanks for the help.
