Error mounting EFI and now also installing clover into ESP

Recommended Posts

After completely giving up on my z87 rig i attempted to install os x on my main rig, an x99 ud5, gtx 970, 5820k. I managed to finish the install and then patch the install (bob roche's video guide). I used the bootflags -v -x -f npci=0x2000 cpus=0 nv_disable=1 to manage to install os x and get into os x. I then proceeded to install clover, which after some fiddling was a success. When opening the EFI Mounter (v2) i get a message "Would you like to mount or unmount EFI partition" although i never even created such a partition. If i try to unmount it, i get an error message saying that it is not mounted and if i try to mount it i get an empty folder. I need some advice on this. Thanks.


Update 1: When trying to create a partition with the command "mkdir /Volumes/efi" it says that it already exists. Then i go on to delete the partition with the command: rm -rf /Volumes/EFI. I then redo the command to make the directory and this time i get no error. HOWEVER, when i then try to mount the efi, either with the efi mounter or using the command "sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/efi" i get the error "no such file or directory". WTF! I just created it and now it's telling me there isn't one.


Update 2: When trying to recreate the EFI partition using "sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/disk0s1" i get one (or both) of the following errors: "msdos table is unavailable" or "/dev/disk0s1 is not a character device". When i do mount it with efi mounter as previously mentioned, i get an empty EFI folder.


Update 3: After reinstalling OS 10.10.4 multiple times (making sure to erase the drive before reinstalling), i cannot use the same settings to install clover (emu, fix1 and fix2). 

Update 4: I managed to install clover by unchecking the "install to esp", but i would like it to be installed on the esp -.-. Oh and on a side note, why is my screen displaying such low resolution, i get that when i install windows but in windows it is easily changed while on mac os x i am stuck at 1 resolution (probs just gotta install nvidia driver so this isn't a big issue atm). When mounting with efi mounter i once again get a message saying "do you want to mount efi or unmount" even though i didn't select anything, it doesn't look like anything which is shown on tutorials.

    • I have an HP desktop that is running Niresh Mavericks. I have a second computer that is identical. I haven't been able to get the distro to install. Is there a way to copy the boot drive that works now and put that copied drive into the second machine. The second machine allows me to install the Niresh distro, but then won't boot from it at all. Can I use an Ultimate Boot CD to clone the drive?  Also, I check both computers and they are both running the exact same bios and settings.  
    • @Epikry Did you made the USB with Hackintosh High Sierra Zone?
    • Ok ok, but I still have the problem of video, yesterday I tried to successfully install the nvidia web driver but this when I restart the screen goes black. I'll make the update video
    • Hello everybody,   I am new to Hackintosh, so maybe I am just not experienced enough, but I cant boot the Installer. Whatever I tried, it didnt work. I tried doing it by myself, with Clover and a real Mac form a friend, I tried using the installer, I tried fixing files back and forth. (Currently using Windows 10 Pro 64bit) with: CPU: Intel Core i7 6800K MB :  MSI X99A Raider GPU: Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming RAM: 16GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB SSD: Samsung Evo 250 GB HDD: 2x 2TB Seagate Barracuda (Disconnected for install)   It displays: "Error allocating 0x1193d pages at 0x0000000015fa2000" But, I always get the problem: "Couldn't allocate runtime area" Then: "Boot failed, sleeping for 10 seconds before waking..."
      (I tried inserting media, imgur didn't work)   I tried almost everything, I am really infuriated by that. Hardware should be compatible, it gets recognized in Clover at least. Though, I dont know how to configure a config.plist file. Some forums said, that could be the problem, but I just used the one, which is generated with Transmac. So, could anybody help me out? Does the generated file really not work?
