Bro i need your expertise on this please, before a week or so my pc stopped booting into anything else except windows. Tried resetting the bios, downgraded the bios version, cmos clear, ... you name it. It won't boot into clover at all.
Same hardware, same settings i used to operate on.
Here is what exactly happened:
Have 3 SSD drives that contains Mac OS
Main drive is the daily operating system (Mojave 10.14.6)
3rd is the testing drive which i recently installed on it Catalina.
After the install everything worked fine on the same EFI folder and started to insatall my main apps to test the compatibility of those i use daily. Had to restart and upon that it refused to boot into clover since that day.
My Mobo : Asus X299 Prime deluxe Bios V.1705 currently (tried 1503, 1903)
I also disconnected the rest of the SSD's and kept only the hackintosh drive and still nothing.
Upon booting it shows a flashing fast message which i tried to capture but couldn't and then ignore the drive and tries to find windows instead.
Any suggestions or tips.
Trouble shooting for this problem can be several issues. One often missed is a bad memory stick. If your DDR4 has LEDs, see if all are lit and have the same color. If not, remove the bad one and its mate. (Also, make certain that they're all properly seated.)
Other things to consider are BIOS settings (it sounds like you already re-flashed the BIOS (I'm using 1902 with my PD1). Then make certain that some items like CSM and "Above 4G Decoding" are how you want them. Sometimes, their settings don't stick and that can cause a boot error. Occasionally, the EFI folder on your boot drive can become corrupted; a simple work around is to boot from a back up drive.
Other odd things are PCIe problems, so when trouble shooting, remove all un-necessary PCIe devices.
From your description, I'd suspect bad RAM or corrupted BIOS (or both).
