Hi everyone,

Just here to report that I'm having an issue with clover 4586.

I updated macOS to 10.13.5 / Nvidia web driver / kexts without any issue.

But when I updated clover to 4586, on boot ,after the clover selection screen, the PC restarts and goes back to the clover selection screen.

I fixed this issue using my installation key to boot in firevault. Then I used multibeast to redo my clover install for my system.
It rolled me back to clover 4458 and it's working fine. Then updated to clover 4558.

I found this thread on the subject but I don't know "OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi" and I guess that I apparently need it : https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/warning-clover-update-r4586-deletes-osxaptiofix3drv-64-efi.255174/

cheers

I had a similiar issue, even though it says AptioMemoryFix is being upgraded it just deletes it making the system unbootable.
This is when upgrading to Clover 4586.

I ran into the same issue by not changing options in clover install. Normally all is ok but with this version clover seems to change one efi file and does not replace with new one. Like @Lundli mentioned, it's the AptioMemoryFix you have to choose. I forgot that and I couldn't boot from any of my USB sticks or anything else. Boot stops at End Randomseed++++.

Here's a solution how to fix it:

1. Press an arrow key when clover comes up so you stop counting down to boot mac os.
2. Choose Clover Shell and hit Enter.
3. Now you should see some FSX: drives (use PgUp/PgDown to view).
4. You can mount a drive with map FSX (where X is the number of the drive you want to mount)
5. Step by step mount the drives. You can go to a drive by typing e.g. FS0:
To change a directory use cd [dir]
List files with ls and use command help to show all commands.
6. One drive should be the EFI drive and one drive with your macos install. Clover does a backup before install (thanks god :)) in the root folder of your macos partition.
7. So go to the backup folder in CLOVER\drivers64UEFI\ and copy the file OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi to the same directory in your EFI drive with command cp src dst (src=path to OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi; dst=path to destination directory on EFI drive).
8. After that type exit.
9. YOU MUST REBOOT NOW!
10. Now all is fine and be careful at next clover install... like me :banghead:;)

Hope this helps someone...

Update
After that procedure and you install clover 4586 again (with AptioMemoryFix-64 enabled!) or next update check out your EFI drive. When you see AptioMemoryFix-64.efi just delete the old OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi
You should do that before reboot!

Update 2
When you install clover 4586 again (or later updates) you should also enable ApfsDriverLoader-64. After that delete apfs.efi in ..\drivers64UEFI folder on your EFI partition. Also check for new AptioInputFix-64 or others you enabled. After install You should always have a look at your efi folder before reboot and check for older versions.
This guide is only to fix boot and get back to mac os.
(Thanks to @MysticalOS and @remanifest for pointing this out)

Yes, and after updating to Clover 4586, I too ran into several severe problems.
I ended up replacing clover with the previous version and EFI partition from backup.

Not worth the headache. DO NOT install until bugs are ironed out.
