Try clearing NVRAM at the OpenCore boot menu. It will reset the system and you should be able to enter BIOS.
I don't know why your system is not seeing your other drives after you boot in to macOS. Did you set Finder to show your drives? What do you see when you enter "diskutil list" in Terminal?

I have this all working now. One thing that seemed to help (not sure if this was curative or not) was updating all EFI drive folders with your latest Clover 5122 folder. I just copied that over to all the non-Opencore drives and it started working with all drives appearing on desktop even booted from Opencore EFI. I can now boot either Opencore (1 SATA drive) or Clover (3 SATA drives) on this system. One question, it appears you have spent more time trying this out. Do you feel at this point that either Opencore or Clover is "better?" Which would you run if you were just interested in reliability?

@pastrychef I have a slightly odd hardware issue. I get a pink windowing problem occasionally running OSX Mojave (10.14.3-10-14.6) and it doesn't matter if I am using Opencore EFI or Clover EFI. In both cases, I get occasional screen color-shifts. It's like the graphics windowing system is struggling and overlaying a translucent pink window. The most blatant way to get it to show this behavior is playing a video (i.e. youtube) which may start our fine but then gets overlaid with a pinkish square (see attached image.)

I've ruled out a few things.
-- behavior happens with opencore or clover, so not the fault of boot efi system
-- behavior happens with Mojave (10.14.3-10-14.6), I have not tried other OSX's but could.
-- happens in Chrome, Firefox, other apps so not app specific.
-- tried turning off / on hardware acceleration in apps, problem persists.
-- happens with DVI and Displayport so does not seem to be a cable problem.

Is this my monitor failing (unlikely.) Or a motherboard issue or video card? (Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon 580 8 GB?)
Possibly a bios setting?

After booting in to macOS, don't see any difference whether I used Clover or OpenCore.

If I had to choose one, I'd probably go with OpenCore for better future development.

Hi @pastrychef ,
In addition to Big Sur also on Catalina 10.15.6 it seems that the Youtube VP9 4k codec for Safari 14 is available.
To enable it, turn on the "Develop" menu and go to "Experimental Features". Then turn "WebRTC VP9 Codec".
But it doesn't work for me. Has anyone made it?

I didn't even know the option was there.

I would stress test the video card to make sure it's not dying.

~20 minutes and two restarts... I'm on OpenCore.

It is not the 580 card. tried running my system with two older Radeon video cards. Got the exact same problem of a pink overlay box on any video (Firefox, Safari, Chrome). Also any MP4 played with QuickTime.

So it does not seem to be a problem specific to any video card, display cable, or EFI boot system (Clover or OC.) (I try other settings on my Dell monitor it persists.) I am running out of things to think could cause this. It occurs on all web browsers and any video format. It's quite strange. Here is the behavior described:

"View any video it appears normal temporarily during playback. After about 3 seconds, a square pink overlay happens. Resize the window larger and it goes back to normal. After a few seconds the pink overlay returns at the new size."

IDEAS:
-- Can this just be a video issue specific to Mojave?
-- Is this my IGPU fighting with my graphics card for dominance?
-- Is this because some kind of hardware acceleration is kicking in? I disabled this in browsers -- no effect.
-- The next thing I might try is to see if I can duplicate pink-video in Catalina or Big Sur which would tell me it was a Mojave OS problem, but I can't find this as a "known" bug in Mojave. Hard to think only I would have it.
-- Is there any video BIOS setting that might be causing this?
-- If pink also happens with Catalina, I'd have to conclude the mobo was not processing a video signal correctly.

Sound right?

I don't think so.
I doubt it.

None that I can think of.
Not sure.

Are you using HDMI to connect your monitor?

Hey guys! I just upgraded my computer from a Asus Maximus Formula VIII w/ i5 6600k to a Asus ROG Strix z490-e w/ i7 10700k and now my hackintosh boots to apple logo with no progress bar. Anyone have any recommendations on what I can do to fix this? thanks!

SOLVED> Holy cow! I finally tried this with a different monitor and it seems the "pink video" problem is unique to my Dell Ultrasharp monitor in this hardware setup (Dell 24 UltraSharp with PremierColor Monitor - U2413) which is admittedly getting older maybe vintage 2014. When I hooked it up to a newer Dell monitor (U2412M) via dvi the pink problem was gone. No more "pinking" to videos. I guess it's time to get a 4K display. Which one? I really liked the darn Dell U2413's very non gloss old "mac like" display. Crap, you can't live in the past...
