I just upgraded my test OC drive to OC 7.0 as I want to test this vector acceleration quirk BigAl is raving about.
On first boot, I got stuck with the error: hfsplus.efi at 4 cannot be found
So I rebooted and had a look at these. There's an openhfs whatever .efi, but no hfsplus.efi. So I copied hfsplus.efi over from my OC 0.6.8 EFI, and now it boots OK.
Is this a plain bad idea? I guess this openhfs thing is the successor of hfsplus? How can I make this work?
BTW, I am still on Mojave, but I guess that doesn't make a difference for a bootloader.
Several versions of OC back Openhfs.efi was introduced in place of HfsPlus.efi by the OC developers in their base EFI folder. It caused problems for some. Since then @CaseySJ's guide EFI folders have been using the former HfsPlus.efi file which has been working fine for most. I've been using HfsPlus.efi without problems for months. There should be no problems using it.
