bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/daliansky/XiaoMi-Pro-Hackintosh/master/install.sh)"

FAQ

My device is locked by Find My Mac and can't be booted, what should I do now?

Press Fn+F11 when you are in Clover boot page. Then Clover will refresh nvram.plist, and lock message should be removed.

I opened the FileVault and I can't find macOS partition in Clover boot page, how can I solve it?

It is not recommended to open FileVault. You can press Fn + F3 in the Clover boot page and choose the icon with FileVault. Then you can boot in the system and close FileVault.

My screen turns to black and has no response during the updating process.

If you have black screen for five minutes and get no response from the device, please force restart your laptop(Long press power button) and choose Boot macOS Install from ~ entry.

My touchpad isn't working after update.

You need to rebuild the kext cache after every system update. Use Kext Utility.app or type sudo kextcache -i / in Terminal.app. Then restart. If this still doesn't work, try to press F9.

I can't boot in Windows/Linux by using Clover, but able to boot by press F12 and select OS.

Many people met this problem by using the new version of AptioMemoryFix.efi. A workaround is to delete AptioMemoryFix.efi in /CLOVER/drivers/UEFI/ and replace it with the old version provided in #93.

Also make sure Sandbox and Hyper-V functions in Windows 10 are disabled.

Please refer to detailed FAQ in wiki FAQ.
