Hi Malki,

Just a quick question; i'm still on Yosemite 10.10.5 and want to upgrade to OSX Sierra in the coming Christmas holiday via your guide, I have almost the same setup :)

Thing is, i want to make a triple boot system like i have now.
- First HD; OSX Yosemite
- Second HD; Win7, legacy (bios)
- Third HD; Win10, uefi

However i now use the Chimera Bootloader to select between OS.
Am i going to fase any problems when trying to triple boot with the Clover bootloader?

Thanks in advance.
Clover is way better. Zero problems with multi boot!

I now have a guide for how to install High Sierra 10.13 on this same hardware configuration! 10.13 works much better with my Gpu (Nvidia 1080ti). I notice zero mouse lag, there was a tiny bit before compared to windows. Also now my dual 4k monitors + my 1080p tv all connected are recognized properly 100%. Before, I wasn't getting all the scaling options. It would make a text menu for scaling options on one of my monitors (which I didn't want), while the other one was properly showing the pictures and saying Larger text ______________ More space. Now all monitors have that!

Done. High Sierra perfect. Better than Sierra.
Hi ! Did you upgrade from Sierra or clean install from scratch ? I would like to update my current system without need to start from scratch. Thanks

Reinstalled from scratch. I would not reccommend just updating. Reinstall from scratch for best result. Back up all data to a separate drive and install from scratch

Thank you so much Malki. After 2 days I have installed a full working desktop here. suprisingly even sound is working through headphone jacket and via display port to my monitor speakers too.

some settings I have to applied when I set my machine up (same motherboard and cpu and ssd)

1. nvdisable=1
2. inject nv driver unticked
3. Nvidia web driver ticked
4. unplugged all hard rives and USB ports.- one of my monitor has a sd reader which was causing the "missing or damaged system" error
5. hdmi doesn't work, has to transmit via display ports.

Now will challenge to install it on a dell xps 15!

Thanks again

glad its working. if you have same mobo as me sound will eventually go out. could be a week or a few weeks but it eventually goes out and im not sure why. this is why i recommend a usb sound adapter.

btw dont need nvdisable=1 if using nvidia web driver

Now I found a problem... after idle for a while the computer goes to sleep and never lit the monitor again unless rebooting..

any clue for a solution?

Installed Sierra yesterday, but am unable to boot the legacy windows versions on my other 2 harddisks unfortunately.
I have to MBR disks with win7 and win10. I was able to boot windows 10 after doing this trick;
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/help-with-booting-windows-10-with-clover-uefi.174198/#post-1139181

But win7 i am still unable to boot...
I installed Sierra with Clover in Legacy mode, because i thought they are all 'legacy' disks then.
I also tried to convert Win7 MBR to GPT, which boots from clover, but gets errors sometimes.

What am i doing wrong here?

From my guide:

  • If it doesn't boot from clover, you have installed windows without UEFI:

In the "Boot" Section of Clover Configurator change the "Legacy" menu on the top right to "LegacyBiosDefault" (it should say PBR by default)

Then go down to "Install Drivers" under the "Tools" Section of Clover Configurator (Bottom Left).

Make sure these drivers are installed (grey means installed):

Extra Drivers (Bottom Right Menu): NTFS

Go to File > Save and save your config.plist. Close Clover Configurator.

You should now be able to dual boot with Windows from the Clover Menu!


Basically gotta change it from PBR mode to LegacyBiosDefault in clover. Or reinstall windows in UEFI Mode
