After finally getting my first hackintosh up and running on High Sierra 10.13.5, and successfully updating Clover to v4586, I noticed that boot time started to get slower and slower each day. Today was I guess the day I had to stepped up and make some research as it took nearly 5 mins for it to boot, which was not happening prior to updating Clover.

Any help on this issue would be really appreciated. I've attached my config.plist

Looks like a TRIM problem to me, I am in a similar situation. Look up for "disable TRIM" and you might get some ideas about what to do.

Have you tried disabling DEBUG ?
remove :

debug=0x100
and

<key>Debug</key>
<true/>

Thank you! Disabling debug=0x100 fixed the issue for me, and it now takes no more than 35 secs of boot time.

I thought so at first, but then I figured TRIM had to do with using SSDs, and I've installed MacOS on a HDD lol

I'm having a similar issue, although it appears my debugs are disabled?...still trying to wrap my head around interpreting the plist and bootleg texts. I've attached the bootleg and plist. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Open Efi Mounter (write the disc name disk0s1 or disk1s1 ..ecc)
copy clover folder to desktop
Try by terminal:
sudo -s ( insert Password)
newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/r+disc name partition efi ( example: /dev/rdisk0s1)
(this formats your EFI partition)
install new Clover EFI
copy your previously saved custom files to your desktop...(usually: ssdt in ACPI, config.plist, file in driver64UEFI and Kext/other)

when you are sure you have everything in place, restart...
