boot loop.... today I saw that the new Multibeast came out for 10.14.5. One of the things I noted was that Clover had been updated from the version I was running (4920 -> 4934) so I ran Clover Configurator, and had it update to 4934.
Now my machine is stuck in a boot loop. Goes thru the hardware bios screen and launches clover well enough, but when it tries to boot my main drive, it just reboots the machine. I have it plenty of cycles of this. Powered off/on... but no luck.
Any suggestions on how to best approach this problem?
Thanks. The only change I made was to update Clover. I didn't change anything else.
When you say"fix EFI folder" would just drag n drop replacing it in full from a working backup do the trick, or are you suggesting running the new multibeast on it? I don't understand the intricacies of Clover, but I thought that merely updating it via Clover configurator would be safe and work. (Obviously there is more to it than that, however.)
I'm up again. I moved the MultiBeast-installed kexts from /library/extension to the efi "other" folder. Also copied over my entire previous SIMBIOS to the "new" config.plist.
The only thing new I saw in the config.plist is an entry that does a "rename HDAS to HDEF". Have no idea what that is, but will just leave it unless you advise otherwise.
I used Clover Configurator to update Clover the first time; MultiBeast to update it the second time... and are you indicating that there is a third tool on SourceForge to also do an update/install of Clover? If so, could you provide the URL, please?
Finally, here's the only issue so far: restart/reboot get to the black screen with the little spinning wagon wheel... which spins about twice, and then freezes. I have to manually reboot or shutdown at that point.
