You may refer to wmchris's tutorial for the installation guide and solutions to some common issues.

Issues

Boot macOS without Clover GUI

Open your config.plist with Clover Configurator and set Timeout to 0 in Boot section.

See Configuration/Boot

Native NTFS Read/Write

  1. You should disable Windows 10's hibernation first: run powercfg -h off in powershell.

  2. Add UUID=xxx none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse to /etc/fstab, xxx is the UUID of your Windows 10(NTFS) partition

Disable Hibernation

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0
sudo pmset -a autopoweroff 0
sudo pmset -a disksleep 0
sudo pmset -a standby 0
sudo pmset -b tcpkeepalive 0 (optional)

-b - battery, -c - AC Power, and -a means both.

(Please uncheck any option in the Energy Saver panel except Prevent computer from sleeping...)

Headphone

You may need PostInstall/ALC298PluginFix to make headphone works properly.

Connect External Monitor via USB-C Port

If you are connecting an external monitor via USB-C port, you may need to close the express-card shown on the menubar manually to prevent sleep-wake-failure.

CPU Frequency

the CPUFriendDataProvider.kext (CPUFriend/Instructions) in this repo was generated for i5-6300HQ ( Credit @corenel for the modified plist file ).

Note that the plist file metioned in the CPUFriend/Instructions should already be modified for your specific CPU. You may refer to this guide HWP(Intel Speed Shift) enable.

You can use intel(R) Power Gadget.app to check your CPU frequency.

Single/Double Click Delay

See is-it-possible-to-get-rid-of-the-delay-between-right-clicking-and-seeing-the-context-menu

Tapping with the trackpad has a delay while the trackpad decides which gesture you are performing. Disabling some gestures will remove this delay in certain cases:

  • If “Smart zoom” is turned on, then a two-finger tap needs to wait to see if you are performing a two-finger double tap.
  • If dragging is enabled (“with drag lock” or “without drag lock”), then a one-finger tap needs to
