macOS Install Instructions

For specs, notes, other informations see the linked Insanelymac guide


  • Create a macOS USB Installer with any method you now.
  • Mount your USB’s EFI and paste my CLOVER and BOOT folder from my bootpack folder to it
    • On Windows you can mount your USB’s EFI with MiniTool Partition Wizard
      • Open MiniTool, select your USB drive’s EFI partition, right click, select “Change Letter”, Click OK, Apply, OK
    • After that you can manage the EFI using Explorer++ in administrator mode
    • On macOS you can use Terminal to mount, or use EFI Mountain to mount your USB EFI
    • If there is no EFI folder inside the EFI partition you need to create that first

  • After finished, next step is to boot the Installer USB
    • I suggest to boot with config_debug.plist because if anything will go wrong you’ll see the logs of what causing that.
    • In Clover press NUM 0 or select “Options” below the partitions, select “Configs”, then select “config_debug.plist”
  • Install macOS
    • Don’t forget to boot from your USB after restarts
      • If you install Big Sur boot from Preboot only!
  • After installing you need to mount your USB’s EFI and your System Drive’s EFI then copy the CLOVER and BOOT folder to your System Drive’s EFI
    • (again, if there is no EFI folder, you need to create it first)
  • Unmount and remove your USB Installer and restart your system

Post Installation

  • Open up your config.plist with Clover, on SMBIOS tab, generate new SMBIOS, then you can log-in to iServices now
