[Guide] How to keep Clover working when installing Windows and Linux

A very common issue when multibooting macOS/OS X with Windows and Linux is that after installing the latter the computer will only boot to them. The reason for this is that Clover does not automatically add itself to the UEFI firmware boot menu that is accessible by pressing F12 or another hotkey. When no other operating systems or boot managers are present the computer will automatically start Clover from the UEFI fall back path at EFI\Boot\BootX64.efi which may be present on the menu as an...

Intel internet access issue Mojave Clover hackintosh

Hi, I have a Clover hackintosh with Mojave, with Intel ethernet, Gigabyte motherboard.
Ethernet worked fine until today. The only thing I changed was that I disabled “wake for ethernet network access” and disabled wake on lan in bios. After this the computer first wouldn’t turn on, but when it did, it doesn’t have internet access. I get a random ip address and notification that it’s not connected to internet.
I changed enerything back, but still no internet connectivity. I do get the lights...

Parallels boot camp partition booting broke after opencore update

My build has 2 separate NVME drives, one for OS X Monterey and another for Windows 10. I originally created the Windows disk using boot camp, then deleted boot camp and ran it with Parallels for the last 4 years.

I updated open core and I can still boot Windows 10 from the opencors picker menu no problem. Unfortunately I can no longer boot the same partition from Parallels. I now get this error:

Open Core or Bust

Ok. So I have ditched Clover for OpenCore and I'm excited from the positive responses and testimonials of the ease of use and stability of OpenCore.

A little background. I built my Hackintosh a few years ago, used Clover and installed Catalina. When it was time to move to Big Sur, I could never get it to take with Clover so I said F' it... lets start from scratch.

So I have followed the Dortonia guide and created my bootable USB. I formatted the Hard Drive and slid the USB into the...

How do you manage BIOS settings when multi-booting with Windows 10?

I installed Windows 10 on a new SSD. I already had Catalina on its own SSD for the same system.
So... If I put BOTH of those back in, I am assuming that the Windows Boot Loader and my OC EFI will leave each other alone. And, if selecting the macOS boot EFI as default in BIOS, OpenCore 'should' recognize the Windows Boot Loader...Right?

But, with the required BIOS settings for Catalina and Windows being so different, how do we manage the situation without changing the BIOS settings each time?

Moving from CLover to Open Core... need help

So I am moving from Clover to OpenCore because no matter what I try, I cannot get Big Sur or Monteray to install. I'm running the newest version of Clover and the newest version of configurator so at this point, I am finished.

However, as I'm trying to get OpenCore ready for the switch, my configurator shows absolutely nada in sections like ACPI, SMBios and so forth and I'm wondering what in the holy hell is going on. I mounted my hard drive and I can see the EFI but when I go to those...
