is there a solution for this yet?

i followed the guide posted previously for the EFI partition using Terminal, but i dont have the "/Extras" folder mentioned in the guide, so at this point i'm also stuck using the USB drive to boot.

also started the whole Unibeast install process a couple of times and i keep getting the same results

hey. Not sure if this will work but might as well give it a try.
1.Boot from your usb installer.
2. On clover bootloader screen, find the icon that says either "options" or "clover options". Press enter.
3. Once in there, select the option that says "install clover options for all entries" or something like it.
4. next, exit clover, restart and boot into bios.
5. Go to 'boot' options and now you should see your hard drive (not usb) listed with UEFI option. (Example - UEFI Samsung ssd)
6. Set it as first boot option, unplug usb and reboot.

Hopefully it will work. Good luck.

Also, regarding Bluetooth.
either move the Bluetooth adapter to front usb port or use an Ethernet cable.
WiFi adapter interferes with Bluetooth.

That option ”install clover options for all entries" exists under a right click on the clover option, but doesnt fix the issue. And that link about making an EFI boot partition is broken.
Any updates?

First, just to be clear, you can’t boot without usb installer as your boot drive is not showing up in boot menu, right? If so, read on.

Before you follow the steps below, have you tried installing Clover bootloader again using MULTIBEAST. It may fix the problem. BUT REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR CURRENT ‘Clover’ folder from your working installation. After you install Clover using MULTIBEAST, make sure to copy and replace file/folder mentioned in Step 15 to your Clover folder before restarting. Just to avoid any boot loops.



ATTENTION: Guys, keep in mind that there is always a risk of something going wrong when messing with efi partition. So if you are NOT comfortable with this method please DO NOT PROCEED.

Now to start things up,
1. Boot into your installed MacOS using ‘USB installer’.
2. Mount your EFI partition using ‘Clover configurator’ or ‘Terminal’.
3. BACKUP your ‘CLOVER’ folder within the ‘EFI’ folder. [IMPORTANT]
4. UNMOUNT your EFI partition by simply right-clicking on it and then ‘Eject’.
5. Now we need to format this EFI partition using Terminal.
https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287737-how-toclover-on-efi-partitionadd-to-bios/
6. Use this link to copy the command (in Step 2 of this link) for formatting EFI partition to FAT32.
7. You may get error after executing the command. So don’t worry about it.
8. Now, that EFI partition is formatted, close the Terminal and again UNMOUNT the partition.
9. Now open ‘MULTIBEAST’ and install just ‘Clover in UEFI mode’ (I think it’s under the first tab in multibeast).
10. When done, don’t close MULTIBEAST and restart your PC.
11. Boot into BIOS, and now your Hard Drive should show up in boot options with a prefix ‘UEFI’. (For example, if you have a seagate hdd that you installed your macOS on, then it will something like “UEFI(Seagate and some numbers)”.
12. Now, Set your HDD/SSD as first boot device. Save changes and restart. (Do not boot from your HDD/SSD just yet).
13. Boot into your macOS installation using ‘USB INSTALLER’ one last time.
14. Now, the only thing left do is copy and replace few files from the BACKUP you created in Step 3 to the newly created EFI FOLDER (you will need to re-mount your EFI partition using Terminal or Clover configurator.
15. Open BACKUP folder. Navigate to EFI->CLOVER.
Now, copy config.plist, ‘drivers’ and ‘driversx64’ folder and also ‘kext’ folder.
16. MOUNT your EFI partition and navigate to EFI-> CLOVER.
Replace all the files you copied above in Step 15. DO NOT MERGE files, if it asks you to merge files then first delete all 4 (1 file and 3 folders) already present and then paste the new files in this CLOVER folder.
17. If all went well, you should now have a working clover entry of your boot partition.

P.S. You can also check that post I linked to earlier, there may be some other information that may come handy for you guys.

Note: Any Partitions, Files or Folders mentioned above are related to macOS installation only. Your USB Installer has no part in this except helping you boot into macOS. Good luck.

Thanks for the detailed reply. it seemed that my EFI partition on the HD was not marked as bootable. It was originally set up via unibeast route. When I downloaded the latest clover installer and ran it, it changed the already existing EFI partition on the HD to be bootable. Clover would then boot up from the HD without having to have the USB booter disk connected. Unfortunately the settings in that new clover didnt allow the OS X to boot up, but by booting up again using the USB drive the OS x would still boot up as before and so I copied the clover directory from the EFI partition on the USB to the one on the hard drive. (The clover configurator program is useful for mounting the efi partitions) and now the HD drive boots up on its own to OS X (mojave). Still need to improve video and get audio, but progress.

Great that it is working for you now.
What do you mean by improve video and get audio?
Nvidia or Amd?
You may google your motherboard+hackintosh+audio.
There will definitely be something useful.
Good luck.

Thanks. The audio is now working, I managed for find a driver and the route to install it. The video needs some work. Its OK playing mp4s and youtube but iMovie says it wont run because the video card doesn't support acceleration. It’s an Nvidia GT 555m card, so 5xx series. I saw there was an option on an old version of MultiBeast that had an option for 5xx series optimization
https://tonymacx86.blogspot.com/2012/03/optimizing-nvidia-geforce-4xx-and-5xx.html
Not sure what version of MultiBeast that is or whether it will work on Mojave as there is no official MultiBeast for Mojave yet. I couldn't find a 5xx Nvidia driver for Mac OS.
Any tips?
