I regularly have an updater glitch, and this occurred again. On first restart of the intaller, I reliably get a crash unless I inject graphic overide using the fake ID 0x12345678 during the clover boot. This may trace to the Intel 530 graphics (but not everyone gets this). Subsequent boots are fine.

Thanks! Updated from 10.14.1 to 10.14.6, went fine. Took about 45 minutes. Don't worry about purple lines and slow loader progress, it will get there, eventually.

I exactly followed the instructions in post #2 by @Stork but when the computer went down for the first reboot, it never came back up. I've tried booting from the Prebooter, the MacOS Install, and my regular install, and nothing happens. Looks like my machine is totally hosed. People keep saying this is not a help thread. Where would I go for help on this? (Attachment shows what I get when I boot verbose.)

UPDATE: I got it working. For some reason when I updated Clover it deleted all of the following files from my EFI>CLOVER>drivers64EUFI folder:

AptioMemoryFix-64.efi
AudioDxe-64.efi
DataHubDxe-64.efi
FSInject-64.efi
SMCHelper-64.efi
VBoxHfs-64.efi

I was able to boot into my cloned backup and copy these over from an EFI backup.

All's well that ends well I guess, but why would the Clover updater do that?

Which version of Clover did you update to? I guess this is what happened:

FYI

Clover Rev 5000 and later has a new folder structure for its efi drivers ...
  • /EFI/Clover/drivers/BIOS (replaces EFI/Clover/drivers64)
  • /EFI/Clover/drivers/UEFI (replaces EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI)
This info is detailed in the official Clover changes thread :-


As detailed in that post, the Clover installer does not migrate an old Clover folder structure to the new folder structure, so if your only updating the core Clover components then you must manually create the new folder structure, move the efi drivers to it and delete the old folders.

Rather than update an existing Clover install which as many users have found can cause boot issues, I found it easer to format a USB Memory stick with GUID Partition scheme / HFS+ and then run the 5018 Clover installer and install a fresh new/clean install of Clover on to it. You can then copy your working config.plist, ACPI DSDT and/or SSDT's files, themes .. etc on to it. Then test that it works by booting from it. Once your happy that everything is working correctly you can update your systems EFI Boot partition by copying the EFI folder from the USB.

Cheers

I updated to the latest, 5018.

It would have been nice if the installer would have had some kind of warning instead of just deleting a bunch of files. If it's moving to a new file structure, why did it work when I put everything back like it was?

Might be nice for people updating if @Stork could update his post at the beginning of the thread for people to watch out for this weird behavior.

Updated today and it went very smooth, no problems at all.
Neither any Audio nor any USB issues.
Everything working including Thunderbold, FCPX.
Standby and Power down still work fine as well.
