Hi Guys,

as mentioned in a previews post regarding my Graphics Card, my system runs fine, once it's booted. However my boot time is quiet long and I don't know why. I've already tried to fix some specific options within my config.plist with clover but nothing worked for me. To get a better understanding about my system, here we go:

I7 4770K
RX 580
16 GB Ram
Asrock X87e-ITX

Attached you will find my config and a boot.log from clover. I've used multi beat with legacy mode because EFI didn't work for me. But I don't know why to be honest.

Anyways, thank you very much for helping me out. :)

Cheers,
Dome

I am somewhat surprise you've managed to reach the desktop with this config.plist simply meaning it is virtually empty. No wonder it is taking an age in booting because without a properly populated config.plist the p/c doesn't know where to go or what to do so the long pause in booting is because it is searching the ACPI is my assumption. You have virtually no entries (or were they removed for security reasons?) i.e no Mac Model, no ROM, Serial Number etc etc.
I suggest you do a little more research, find a Mac model as close as possible to your specs and/or find a member with similar specs willing to share their EFI folder just to give you an idea what is needed to get your setup running as smooth as possible. - 'Simplest Mac OS X Installation Guide' - is a great starting point. Good luck.
