Prepping my Big Sur to upgrade to Monterey and installed the latest Clover 5143.. During boot and using the clover config.plist validator Im seeing these warnings..

Code:
gateway@iMac ~ % ccpv /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist
Warning: BiosVersion 'IM191.88Z.F000.B00.2004232100' is before than default ('IM191.88Z.F000.B00.2106222356') -> ignored. Dict '/SMBIOS:316'.
Warning: BiosReleaseDate '04/23/2020' is older than default ('06/22/2021') -> ignored. Dict '/SMBIOS:316'.
Warning: EfiVersion '1037.120.79.0.0' is older than default ('1554.140.20.0.0') -> ignored. Dict '/SMBIOS:316'.

Any ideas on what the issue or how to fix this?

This usually means your SMBIOS is out of sync with what Apple expect to see when a real Mac with a matching SMBIOS boots the version of macOS you are running. Because the Firmware would have been updated as part of the macOS upgrade.

You need to do the following:
  • Open your config.plist in a recent version of Clover Configurator.
  • Navigate to the SMBIOS tab.
  • See if the app says you need to update the firmware for your SMBIOS - usually Yellow text message below the Version/Mobile/Trust boxes.
  • If Yes, select the Update Firmware Only tick box.
  • Select your SMBIOS from the dropdown list, adjacent to the Update Firmware Only tick box.
This should leave your Serial Number, Board Serial Number and SmUUID intact but update the other SMBIOS data to reflect the new Firmware used by a real Mac.

Screenshot below shows 'Update Firmware Only' box you need to select on SMBIOS tab in Clover Configurator.
