Update history

v0.2.1

Set the default volume to Windows.

Basically if you want to make it work on your computer, the only thing to do is to modify the value of DefaultVolume, on my computer the name of EFI volume is ESP but on yours it might be EFI or something else.

v0.2.0

Fixed USB detection issue and sound is also available.

It is totally the same as the clover shared by RockJesus. Additionally, I removed the -v argument and replaced the default theme.

v0.1.0

This one is for macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra, currently there are some known issues.

  1. USB devices cannot be detected on the first boot, if you want to get it worked, click the sleep button before logging in via touch panel, when the keyboard light goes out, wake up your computer, then it should be available.

  2. No sound.

  3. Cannot boot the OS installer, use AW17R4-Post-Install instead while installing the system.

  4. For screen resolution issue, refer to this online tool: SCALED RESOLUTIONS FOR YOUR MACBOOKS EXTERNAL MONITOR.

  5. If you failed to format the disk to APFS, choose HFS first then use the 'Edit -> Convert to APFS' option in the top menu.
