My EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI folder before and after Clover 5k update, shows missing files but it did not have any adverse effects as the 10.4.6 update went uneventful and system stability is as good as it's always been.
my question is, should I put the missing files back into the new drivers64UEFI folder?

You should have a look at this:

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 will not automatically migrate/update an existing Clover install. If you run the installer with you current boot EFI partition as the target it will delete your old folder structure, create the new structure and install a default set of efi drivers (or the ones that you select to install). It will not move your existing efi drivers to the new folders.

Rather than Installing Clover over 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 latest (r5000 +) Clover installer and install a fresh new/clean install of Clover on to it making sure I selected all of the EFI drivers i needed. I then copied my working config.plist, DSDT and SSDT's files, kexts, themes .. etc on to it and tested that it worked by booting from it. Once I was happy that everything was working correctly I updated my systems EFI Boot partition by deleting the old Clover folder and copying the new one from the USB, you will also need to also copy the new BOOTX64.efi file in the BOOT folder.

Thanks, as I stated in my post, my system is running normal w/out these missing drivers from my current EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI, which was created when I updated to Clover r5000
So, i'm still wondering what these drivers do, as it's apparent my system hasn't needed them. At least I haven't so far noticed any weird behavior or glitch.

Have a look in your Library/Extensions folder, as that is the recommended location for kext files. It is where KextBeast, for example, puts them if you have used that at any time to install Kexts.

This update fixed two issues for me:
- waking from sleep didn't work (black screen, keyboard and mouse worked, IGPU just didn't wake)
- YouTube videos in fullscreen would go black screen after a second or two of inactivity and reappear on any input

I'm using 8700K's IGPU

Should there be anything in Drivers>BIOS folder? It is empty.

@elfcake,

After a clean install of Clover r5018 on a USB I have the following efi drivers in the Folder /EFI/Clover/Drivers/BIOS
  • ApfsDriverLoader.efi
  • AudioDxe.efi
  • FSInject.efi
  • SMCHelper.efi
  • XhciDxe.efi
ApfsDriverLoader.efi, FSInject.efi and SMCHelper.efi are also in /EFI/Clover/Drivers/UEFI which I selected in the Clover Installer along with the others that I selected.

I did not select AudioDxe.efi or XhciDxe.efi so those must have been installed by default.

As I wrote in this post :-


The Clover installer will not update an existing Clover install so i think its best to do a clean/fresh install on to a USB stick and then merge your existing config files ... etc, then copy the new Clover folder to your boot EFI partition.

Cheers
Jay
