Fixing Resolution and Verbose

Last edited: January 13, 2020

Wanting a more clean booting experience with macOS without all that verbose text while booting? Well you need a couple things:

Recommended Configuration:

NVRAM -> 7C436110-AB2A-4BBB-A880-FE41995C9F82 -> boot-args

  • Remove -v from your config.plist

UEFI -> Protocols:

  • ConsoleControl set to True

UEFI -> Quirks:

  • ProvideConsoleGop set to True
  • IgnoreTextInGraphics: set to True
  • SanitiseClearScreen: set to True

Misc -> Boot:

  • Resolution: set to your monitor's resolution
  • ConsoleBehaviourOs: set to Graphics
  • ConsoleBehaviourUi: set to Text
  • ConsoleMode set to Max
    • Setting to Max can infact break the resolution, if having issues set this to blank

Please refer below for other settings if these Misc/Boot values do not work for your firmware.

For Broadwell and newer:

Misc -> Boot:

  • ConsoleBehaviourOs: set to ForceGraphics
  • ConsoleBehaviourUi: set to ForceText

For Haswell and older:

Misc -> Boot:

  • ConsoleBehaviourOs: set to Graphics
  • ConsoleBehaviourUi: set to ForceText
You can’t perform that action at this time.
