I lost my clover boot screen after cloning with CCC

Panic mode enabled :)

This is weird...

I was struggling to create a bootable clone of my Catalina hackintosh with CCC. I'ver got a Designare Z390. The hackintosh itself ran smoothly for the past 3 years but I wanted to try an update so I thought hey, why not make a clone of it and play on that. What did I do ???!! :)

Enventually I managed to have a booting clone. I went in the task settings and ticked everything that was in "include". That should be the default thing the cloning process...

How to make a perfect clone of my boot disk?

Hi everyone. I'd like to clone my Hackintosh boot disk for a simple reason: I want to install the Apple system updates in the clone disk, in my second Hackintosh, before doing it on the fully functional HD of my first hackintosh.
Put simply, I would like to have two identical disks that can boot the same way, so that I can test the compatibility of updates first on one disk, the "second Hackintosh", and then on the other. I cloned the system disk with Carbon Copy Cloner and then the UEFI...

Moving to Mojave on new SSD


I’m planning on updating my ancient Yosemite daily to Mojave.

It’s a Gigabyte GA-Z77 DS3H V.1 / i7 3 series / GT640 GPU

It’s currently on Chameleon/Multibeast with a SYSDEF of Mac Pro 3.1

I was wondering if I changed the SYSDEF (to which one I don’t know) I could then upgrade to Mojave?

Then could I clone the drive to the SSD?

Else: The original plan...

I have a ‘ known good’ Mojave Unibeast stick, which was my original plan. The only issue I may have with that is I don’t think...

Can't enable DP port

Hello, I wondered if someone could give me some pointers to enable my DP port? So I used opencore for the first time and installed Bigsur. I was surprised my Nvidia 760 had metal support :) My other OS is 10.10 with clover and that is perfect with all graphics working.

So I am not using internal just the gtx760 card. At the moment it outputs to HDMI fine, but when connecting my DP monitor it's just blank. Hackintool shows the card with 4 outputs.

Not sure where to go from here.
