Anyone else using a Gigabyte Ivy Bridge? I'm only able to use Clover in Legacy Boot Mode on both the H77N-WIFI and the Z77X-UD5-TH. I think it could be due to the first iteration of UEFI?

If anyone finds this post, Clover in Legacy Boot Mode works.

Im using Gigabyte Ivybridge in UEFI.

Hmm ok. Maybe something with the BIOS settings?

I have CSM Disabled and changed UEFI and Legacy to UEFI Only. Do you have the BIOS entry Clover start boot.efi at Macintosh HD.

Edit. Added screenshot.

No I don't have those entries- only UEFI: Samsung SSD 850 EVO.

Edit: OK the magic setting was Windows 8 Boot Mode and CSM Disabled- I don't have to set that on 8/9/100 series. Thanks for the response- glad i was able to make it work.

I built this machine as an HTPC a couple months after the original guide came out and it is still chugging along great. Only mod Ive made is putting an SSD in it recently, after using only an HDD. It's my first and only hackintosh build and was the perfect vanilla installation for a first timer.
