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.
