Thanks for the point in fixing my BIOS Settings!
I had working Sierra on HDD with HD530 glitch (i.e. Reference A). I recently bought SSD (i.e. Reference B) which I used CCC to copy the entire HDD and prepare identical EFI Partition. Obviously, both are suffering HD530 glitch but other than that everything else works perfectly; able to boot own its own and function.
I am playing with B's EFI config.plist using latest Clover Configurator. After trying variety of fixes through Clover configurator, now the B drive is not able to boot itself. I tried copying back the A's entire EFI partition to B's EFI to return to prior state, but still the drive is completely unbootable where verbose mode tells me this line
>>> "[IGPU] Failed to initialize graphics firmware."
When I get home, I will try changing BIOS setting to a) primary graphic as IGPU b) DVMT to 64MB and see if any of drive A or B is able to address HD530 glitch.
I really want to make Drive B work, but what would you suggest I do? should I try clean re-installl ? Thanks for your time and help!
Rather then copying clover bootloader to new drive, remove what you copied and install fresh clover bootloader. After its loaded you can open the EFI partition and remove and replace config.plist, and add fakeSMCkext to kext folders 10.12 and other. This is what I do when Carbon Copying to a new disk. Just replace with old plist and add the kexts.
Google Clover Bootloader and get the latest copy.
