I certainly could, but I havent found configurator 4674, and I'm not sure what earlier than 5.5.0.0 versions would be compatible. As I cant find 4674, I'm kind of gun shy to find another version that would need to rev the boot loader to be in sync...and bork the EFI folder again.
Please try this one.

Thanks!

Alas, no. This is 4.61.0.0. Generating a config yields:
Error the version of clover-genconfig didn't match current booted clover version
len=2944 sizeof=3080

Same results..."Error the version of clover-genconfig didn't match current booted clover version"

I'll have to just roll the dice and upgrade the EFI bootloader and the configurator version.

Is there a version you recommend for 10.13.6? 5.5.0.0 was the one that borked things.

Thanks again!

I don't know. I always keep going forward with the latest version of macOS and Clover...

You can always edit your config.plist with Xcode, Plist Edit Pro, or a text editor.

Is it normal to have more than 10C degree difference in temperature reading from the ioreg command and istats/hwmonitor?

I'm not sure...

Using the terminal command yields no temperature reading for my Radeon VII. However, I do get a GPU temp reading in iStat Menu. To me, this implies that they are getting different readings. If this is true, then it wouldn't be surprising to see different temps.

I finally had a bit of time to install my i5-9400F and my Vega 56 in to my Z370-G and it's back up and running.

As I expected, the i5-9400F is a really good bargain. ~5400 single core and ~22500 multi core Geekbench 4 results @ only ~$130. Sure, it doesn't have an IGPU, but I've been using iMacPro1,1 system definition anyway.

I'm ready for Catalina Golden Master.
